2022 Book Review: Blackout

Blackout by Mira Grant A Science Fiction, 2012 by Orbit, 512 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Did I expect that specific twist? Sort of (hard to miss the clue of the Becks incident in book 2). Did it still creep me out a little? Also yes. Still not sure where I stand on it. I’m... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Deadline

Deadline by Mira Grant A Science Fiction, 2011 by Orbit, 584 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Some slower spots. Not many and none without a purpose, but worth noting anyway. This one lacks the political drama of the first book. Part of why I loved Feed was the way it seamlessly blended that with the... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Circe

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: 20th Victim

20th Victim by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro A Mystery/Thriller, 2020 by Little Brown, 432 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: A few grammatical errors and continuity errors jumped out at me while I was reading. Nothing big or story altering, but errors nonetheless. The 20th book in this series recycles things from the previous 19. There... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Lady Smoke

Lady Smoke by Laura Sebastian YA Fantasy, 2019 by Delacorte Press, 512 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: It’s slow. That is the EXACT OPPOSITE of book 1 in this series which I liked particularly because it moved fast. This one suffered from a lack of major plot points and a lot of cycling around the... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Dead Until Dark

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris A Paranormal, 2001 by Ace Books, 292 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: First instinct: the author seems obsessed with traditional beauty standards. It died down a bit as the book went on, which is a good thing, but it’s definitely there. I didn’t love Sam. This led to problems later... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Grave Secrets

Grave Secrets by Kathy Reichs A Mystery/Thriller, 2002 by Scribner, 315 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: This isn’t really a bad thing, just worth mentioning. Every time I tackle this series I have to remind myself it’s not the Bones show I love. Sure it’s Temperance Brennan and she’s a forensic anthropologist, but that’s where... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Enclave

Enclave by Ann Aguirre YA Science Fiction, 2011 by Feiwel and Friends, 259 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: The fight scenes are awkward and choppy. We’ve heard this story before. It has parts of so many dystopian stories that I’ve read and nothing overly original stands out to me. The romance ARC felt forced and awkward.  ... Continue Reading →
