2022 Book Review: Great Wars

Great Wars A Anthology, 2022 by Lost Boys Press, 272 Pages What I Didn’t Like: As always with anthologies, it’s worth mentioning that not all the stories are things you’ll love. Of course, that’s also the beauty of anthologies. You may find that gem that you adore. I didn’t love all of these, that’s why... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: She Named Me Wolf

She Named Me Wolf by Tenkara Smart YA Fantasy, Independently Published in 2020, 336 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Content Warning: abuse, suicidal thoughts, violence. Very tough to read. Time jumps made this a complicated timeline to follow. Sometimes the events we follow seem unnecessary and I wondered what they added to the story. I was frustrated...

2022 Book Review: Rapid Eye Movement

Rapid Eye Movement by Amanda Sheridan A Mystery/Thriller, Independently Published 2020, 315 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Pacing. This one felt a little slow in some spots and fast in others, making it an uneven pace. Character confusion. The two main characters, Jennifer and Lucy, feel a lot alike. This made it difficult for me to... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: A Lover’s Will

A Lover’s Will by Mahiraj Jadeja A Poetry, 2016 by Olympia Publishers, 62 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Grammar and punctuation get a lot of free reign in poetry, I’m the first to admit that. However, in my opinion, those decisions to break rules need to be intentional. In this poetry collection it feels like... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Verity

Verity by Colleen Hoover A Mystery/Thriller, 2018 by Grand Central Publishing, 336 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Content warning, in case you need it. This one contains lots of sexual language, violence, violence against children and death. Also if you, in general, don’t like unreliable narrators you’ll probably not be a fan of this book. The...

2022 Book Review: Xor Ax, Ax

Xor Ax, Ax by Andrei Saygo YA Science Fiction, Independently Published in 2022, 304 Pages What I Didn’t Like: The romance feels forced. It’s not a big storyline, it’s only a minor mention and it’s easy to ignore. Of course, that brings up the point of why include it at all if it’s so easy... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: The Letter Carrier

The Letter Carrier by Laurie LC Lewis A Historical Fiction, 2022 by Willowsport Press, 322 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Dry. This text feels removed from the main character and her important story. I felt a lack of connection to her, which just made the story feel drier than I’d like. Formatting. The ebook, which is... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Hammer My Heart

Hammer My Heart by Michelle Angelle A Romance, 2022 by Michelle Angelle Books,266 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Perfect characters. I know it’s a typical romance thing and you guys eye roll at me everytime I list it as a negative thing, but it bothers me. These two main characters are both beautiful people with... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Revenge of Queen Rose

Revenge of Queen Rose by Valinora Troy MG Fantasy, 2022 by Disresponsible Nodpots, 234 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Some slower parts. Nothing extreme, but there are parts that move slower than others. Paul’s chapters. They’re not particularly my favorite, although they throw back to the first book. I probably could’ve done without his portions altogether. Not... Continue Reading →

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. But we built up to what felt like a big moment and then just POOF it was over with one line. The beginning caught me off guard a bit because... Continue Reading →
