Circe by Madeline Miller A Fantasy, 2018 by Little Brown and Co, 393 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: CW: Sexual assault (not graphic).  There are parts of the story that move slowly and feel drawn out to show the passage of time.  If you aren’t familiar with all the mythology and stories behind the characters...

2022 Book Review: Feed

Feed by Mira Grant A Science Fiction, 2010 by Orbit, 600 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Content warning: blood, disease, nastiness, and death. The blog entries were fine but I could’ve done without most of them.

2022 Book Review: Eyes on the Road

Eyes on the Road by Kerri Davidson and Mark Gelinas YA Contemporary, 2021 by Kerri Davidson Books, 263 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Some scenes I would’ve liked to see.

2022 Book Review: Ternary

Ternary by Kristin L Stamper YA Science Fiction, 2021 by NineStar Press, 285 Pages What I Didn’t Like: One anticlimactic scene. Thankfully it was only one.

2022 Book Review: Lock In

Lock In by John Scalzi A Science Fiction, 2014 by Tor Books, 336 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: The opening “chapter”, while important, could easily turn people off.
