I think Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff are trying to kill us

Aurora Burning by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

About a year ago, I gushed about the latest Amie Kaufman/Jay Kristoff collaboration, Aurora Rising. In reading that review, I realize I did not do it justice. Unfortunately, with the way its sequel, Aurora Burning, ends, I don’t think this review is going to be much better because I really do think Ms. Kaufman and Mr. Kristoff are out to...

Yep. Still Alive.
2020-07-07 15:00 UTC by Michelle

It has been a few weeks since I last posted, and what a few weeks it has been.

When last I posted, I mentioned that we were going to downsize. This meant getting our house ready for selling, which confirmed why we need to downsize. Between Holly and me, we went through every closet and every drawer of our fourteen-room, 3,600 square-foot house....

Bring on the seasons…maybe

Seasons of the Storm by Elle Cosimano

Seasons of the Storm by Elle Cosimano is a cute story that personifies our seasons. In theory, it is the beginning of a new series, but with the ending it has, I am not certain how that is; the story is complete as it stands. While I can see the potential storyline should Ms. Cosimano continue, I don’t think it necessary for her to do so. I...

This Little Family by Inès Bayard

I was looking through my printed advance proof of This Little Family by Inès Bayard for a trigger warning because if ever a book needs one, this is it. Any book about rape is going to be tough and potentially triggering, but Ms. Bayard’s description of the scene is particularly bothersome because she manages to depict one of the most...

Death in Her Hands by Ottessa Moshfegh

Death in Her Hands by Ottessa Moshfegh is the type of novel that, upon finishing, had me mentally throwing the book across the room screaming “What. The!” We are stuck in the mind of a judgmental, fat-phobic, psychologically-abused widow who is so damn lonely and isolated that you end up questioning the whole damn novel. No thank you.

Sunday Reflections Button

Happy Mother’s Day to those who are celebrating! Happy Sunday to those who are not!

I know I am repeating what so many others have said, but things are absolutely crazy right now. Never in my wildest imagination would I imagine living through a pandemic and a revolution at the same damn time. These are exciting and exhausting and...

The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon

Book three of The Bone Season series, The Song Rising, by Samantha Shannon is memorable for several different reasons. Not only is it the first book where we move beyond London and Oxford to see other Citadels, we see Paige as the natural leader she is. We also get the exquisite torture that is Warden and Paige trying to define their...

Rage and Ruin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I was reading through my review of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Storm and Fury and realized that I did not fangirl nearly as much as I could have. With the sequel, Rage and Ruin, all bets are off. The only thing I can do is fangirl…HARD.

First of all, in this world where all demons should be evil and all angels good, I adore the fact...

Not the right timing for this release

Night. Sleep. Death. The Stars. by Joyce Carol Oates

If ever there was bad timing for a book’s release, it is the release date of Night. Sleep. Death. The Stars. by Joyce Carol Oates. With its discussion of police brutality and bigotry, one would think it is a perfect time to publish the book. However, the police brutality, in this case, occurs against a wealthy, white family patriarch, which...

The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant

Yeah. I said it. I think that The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant just might be better than Les Misérables, of which it is a feminist reimagining. There are so many twists of the original story that are exciting and give the story a freshness to it without detracting from Hugo’s masterpiece. Plus, there are some sly nods to key aspects...
