2022 Book Review: My Husband’s Wife

My Husband's Wife My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry A Mystery/Thriller, 2016 by Penguin, 373 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Strange pace in the beginning. You could easily lose track of the plot at first or wonder why this is classified as a mystery/thriller for a bit of the story. Unreliable narrator. I’ll come back to... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Resistant

Resistant Resistant by Rachael Sparks A Science Fiction, SparkPress in 2018, 296 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Secondary romance line felt unnecessary and forced. The good news is it’s not a major storyline, which means it’s not a major issue. Felt a bit younger. This one is an adult science fiction book, but it honestly reads... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Blighted Heart

Blighted Heart Blighted Heart by Jessaca Willis YA Fantasy, Independently Published in 2021, 384 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: I want more magic. Don’t get me wrong, I love that magic that is in here, but I’m hoping in the third book we get a chance to see Halira learn some more magic. One major scene... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Fear No Evil

Fear No Evil Fear No Evil by James Patterson A Mystery/Thriller, 2021 by Little Brown, 400 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Rushed ending. Not a cliffhanger, although Patterson is no stranger to those. This felt like you should still have another 100 pages coming and instead … poof, the ending appeared. It was weird. Is it... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Little White Lies

Little White Lies Little White Lies by Jennifer Lynn Barnes YA Mystery/Thriller, 2018 from Little Brown, 390 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Sawyer’s mother. The main idea behind this story never would’ve happened if she was a slightly more attentive parent or was honest with her child. I’m a bit tired of that stereotype. Pacing was... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Nine Perfect Strangers

Nine Perfect Strangers Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty Mystery/Thriller, 2018 from Flatiron Books, 453 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Genre confusion. Most of this novel reads like contemporary fiction with no mystery (and certainly no thrill) whatsoever. I checked (and rechecked) to make sure the genre was listed as mystery/thriller and it is. It’s... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Churro and the Magician

Churro and the Magician Churro and the Magician by Gaston Caba Childrens’ Graphic Novel, Coming in February 2022 from Clarion Books, 32 Pages What I Didn’t Like: There’s absolutely no words (I’m coming back to this point, I promise). Not even a name. If it weren’t for the title we wouldn’t know this bunny was... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Ash Princess

Ash Princess Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian YA Fantasy, Ember 2018, 432 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Characters who fit their cliches. I wanted someone to break out of their expected role and I’m still waiting on that. No surprises yet, just people behaving as you’d expect for the role they’re written into. I want more... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Shadow Crusade

Shadow Crusade Shadow Crusade by Jessaca Willis YA Fantasy, Independently Published in 2020, 356 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Slower pace than I was expecting. I honestly think this has a lot to do with this being the first book in the trilogy. It’s setting up the world, which takes time. The back half of... Continue Reading →
