2023 Book Review: The Ship of the Dead

The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan MG Fantasy, 2017 by Disney-Hyperion, 410 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: There are some slower spots in this one. They’re likely important and intentional but it’s worth mentioning. It made it feel longer than the first ones.  I’m a Loki fan. That’s dangerous with this series. More... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: The Hammer of Thor

The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan MG Fantasy, 2016 by Disney-Hyperion Books, 459 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Unsolved, sort of. Riordan is famous for leaving us with cliffhangers. This is no different, I need book 3 now. I’m not as familiar with Norse mythology so I can’t speak to how accurate it is... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Lethal White

Lethal White by Robert Galbraith A Mystery/Thriller, 2018 by Mulholland Books, 650 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Too similar in pattern to the previous books in the series. Robin can’t sort out her confusing feelings, the case is dangerous, and they get involved anyway, and it all sort of wraps up the same way. I’m... Continue Reading →

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: It Starts With Us

It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover Fiction , 2022 by Atria publishing , 320 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: This is a sequel, a continuation of the first story (It Ends with Us). In this story I felt that the timeframe didn’t match up to the character's actions. Ryle was a controlling abusive person... Continue Reading →

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: 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 →
