The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon is as good as, if not better than, the first book in the series, The Bone Season. Picking up right where the first book ends, the action starts immediately. The danger Paige Mahoney faces is a constant undercurrent under the main activity of the book as she struggles to decide just where her loyalties lie.

Burn by Patrick Ness

Burn by Patrick Ness is a clever alternate reality story set in the 1950s. This reality is extremely close to our own except for one not so small thing. Dragons exist in this world.

Yet, for as dangerous and unknown as dragons are in this world, they are not the biggest threat to peace. Rather, the danger comes from the USSR and the satellite...

Hideaway by Nora Roberts

I do not hide my obsession passion for Nora Roberts’ novels. I find them akin to that great feeling of coming home and sinking into your own bed after a trip. They are comforting, welcoming, and entertaining. They never fail to improve my mood and put everything to rights in my messy mind.

Her newest novel, Hideaway does just that. It is a...

The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
I have other book reviews to write, but somehow, writing about The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett feels like the most important review to write given what is happening around the country right now. Its release date of today, 2 June 2020, is timely, as its discussion of race is one we all need to have right now.

The thing is, I don’t have...

A Bad Book Slump
2020-05-28 15:00 UTC by Michelle

After reading some spectacular books earlier this month, I have hit a spate of bad ones. I know it happens; not every book can be amazing after all. Still, it depresses me because I have not been able to finish a book in over a week, and I was on such a good streak.

STRIKE ONE

The Companions by Katie M. Flynn

Queen of the Unwanted by Jenna Glass

I thoroughly enjoyed The Women’s War by Jenna Glass, but the same cannot be said about its sequel, Queen of the Unwanted. In fact, I did not enjoy the reading of the sequel so much that I did contemplate marking it as a DNF. The only reason I did not do so was the fact that I wanted to give the author a chance to redeem herself and the...

Goldilocks by Laura Lam

It would be easy to dismiss Goldilocks by Laura Lam as a space drama. To do so, however, would mean ignoring the most interesting aspects of the novel, at your detriment. For, the power of the novels lies not in the fact that a majority of it occurs in space but rather all of the factors that brought the women together and keeps them on their...

How do you review a book?
2020-05-18 15:00 UTC by Michelle

I was reading through the reviews of a book about which I was contemplating marking it as a rare DNF for me, and one caught my eye. The reviewer gave it two out of five stars, and the only reason this person did so was that the book has almost no diversity outside of some skin color differences. This reviewer took offense that the author did not...

The Betrothed by Kiera Cass

In an author’s note at the beginning of my review copy of The Betrothed, Kiera Cass mentions that the 1500s era is one of her inspirations for her latest book. I mention this because it is an important note. The Betrothed is not a rewrite of The Selection series. It is a clean and somewhat idealized version of what it was like to be of...

The Pale Dreamer by Samantha Shannon

I have long been a fan of Samantha Shannon’s Bone Season series (and not because she has a fabulous last name 😀 ). I loved the first book so much that I recently wanted to start the series over again. Then, Ms. Shannon announced that her prequel novella, The Pale Dreamer, was available for free as an ebook, and it gave me the perfect excuse...
