The Stranger Game by Cylin Busby

I’m cultivating a new love for YA thrillers, and The Stranger Game is so far a quiet gem for me. It began with the return of Nico’s missing sister, Sarah. Except that Sarah seemed… not quite right. Instead of being a total psycho bitch, cruel to both her parents and her younger sister, this Sarah […]

Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre

I approached this audiobook with trepidation since I have never been interested in reading books from either Rachel Caine or Ann Aguirre, and I’m generally not a massive fan of dual-author books either, for a number of reasons. However, I do like sci-fi and I am willing to take chances because I could always DNF […]

Useless Bay by M.J Beaufrand

I was drawn to Useless Bay because I really liked the idea of a group of almost super-human quintuplets that acted as the local search and rescue on their small, isolated island. What I found was most disappointing. To start with, the quintuplets (all named after Rat Pack members, plus Marilyn ‘Pixie’, because their single […]

The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber

So Mary Weber is a very hit-or-miss author for me. Storm Siren = Hit. Siren’s Fury = Miss. Siren’s Song = Hit. To Best The Boys = Hit. Mary Weber is the only author in the history of my whole reading career (that’s 30+ years!) where I DNF’d a sequel then went on to read […]

Angel Mage by Garth Nix

Garth Nix is the Australian master of worldbuilding. I’m not even joking. Y’all should know that I don’t deliberately seek out male authors (because male authors tend to write books for men about men to the detriment of women) but Nix is one of my exceptions, and I’m happy to share that Angel Mage is […]

I Quit 2 Books In A Row

I Quit 2 Books In A Row

I’m not writing a review for these books. I’m not. I’m just… making notes.   I quit Reign of Shadows at 29% when it became obvious to me that it was just another instalove paranormal romance, with the female main character unable to think about anything other than the boy who popped into her life […]

Starglass by Phoebe North

Despite the fact that the plot didn’t even kick in until well after the halfway mark, the book… wasn’t bad? Like, I enjoyed Terra’s everyday life in the spaceship. What I didn’t like was the blurb promising me: “In this futuristic, outer space thriller, Terra has to decide between supporting the rebellion she believes in–and […]

Rebel Girls by Elizabeth Keenan

You would think, for a book that calls itself Rebel Girls, that there might be some actual rebellion going on in the plot. It’s not the author’s fault (I hope!). Publishers can change the title of a book to whatever they want. And sure, the idea of a good little Catholic girl rebelling in her […]
