2022 Book Review: All His Pretty Girls

All His Pretty Girls by Charly Cox A Mystery/Thriller, 2019 by Hera Books, 343 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Some errors. Not a lot by any stretch and definitely didn’t affect the readability. But I think I caught 1 or 2 small errors in grammar. Unbelievable stretch. Then again maybe not. I don’t know, people are... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Songs of Thalassa

Songs of Thalassa by Brian N Tissot YA Science Fiction, 2020 by BookBaby, 320 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Skewed impact of emotional scenes. There were deaths in this one that almost felt more shocking in the non-reaction of the characters to the deaths. You expect it to pack a punch, emotionally, and instead it... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Blood & Magic Eternal

Blood & Magic Eternal by Jessaca Willis YA Fantasy, Indie Published in 2022, 382 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Editing errors. To be fair, I am working from an ARC so it’s possible some of these were caught before publication. Normally, I ignore grammatical errors in my copies (especially my ARCs) but these are worth...

2022 Book Review: The Wayward Haunt

The Wayward Haunt by Cas E Crowe YA Fantasy, Independently Published in 2020, 378 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Some slower scenes. It wasn’t particularly one section of the book, which is good, but there were scenes that slowed the pace. With other readers tagging this one as dark fantasy and horror I wanted more from...

2022 Book Review: Overcome Social Anxiety

Overcome Social Anxiety Overcome Social Anxiety by Noah Hill A Nonfiction, Independently Published in 2021, 208 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Dry. No anecdotes or stories to liven it up. Very few examples. Lots of repeat information. Why are we listening to this person? It isn’t established if this author is an expert in their field.... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: A Young Man’s Game

A Young Man's Game A Young Man’s Game by Paul Blake A Mystery/Thriller, Independently Published in 2018, 294 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Some slower spots. You spend some time in the main character's head and those portions can move a little slower. I think the contrast between the fast action scenes and the slower... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Pieces & Parts

Pieces & Parts Pieces & Parts by Dawn Hosmer A Fantasy, 2021 by Mind Mosaic Creative, 310 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Some slower spots. This is a sequel so there are parts specifically written to give people who fell in love with the character in the first one a deeper connection to her life... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Sidetracked

Sidetracked Sidetracked by SK Kelley YA Fantasy, 2021 by Bleeding Heart Books, 455 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Shades of stories you’ve heard before are definitely there. I wanted Jayde to have a bit more backbone. While it’s relatable (I’ll come back to that in a second) it’s definitely frustrating when she seems to shrink back... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Pinhole

Pinhole Pinhole by Matthew Kagle A Science Fiction, Independently Published in 2013, 342 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: There is a very large cast of characters who you’ll struggle to follow. My advice is to approach this more as a series of short stories surrounding an overall theme of time travel to feel as though... Continue Reading →
