Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Apparently I missed the memo that said this book was about a ‘bisexual necromancer’ and that was pretty much all everyone was talking about, because I don’t really hang out in social media for my book blogging. As such, I went into this book expecting a story about a necromancer who slays and then raises […]

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer

Jodi Picoult might be a household name, but this book is about 80% terrible and the remaining 20% that is actually interesting isn’t worth my time. There’s slut-shaming, girl-hating, and the female main character Delilah has physically assaulted two other girls so far. Yet somehow SHE’S the victim. And then, when Delilah explains that she […]

Unnatural Deeds by Cyn Balog

I was seriously contemplating quitting this book by about 15% through, because the protagonist, Vic, was behaving like a psycho, and literally every thought in her head was about the new mystery boy at school, Z. So I looked up some spoilers, because I was not happy to waste my time on another typical YA […]

People Like Us by Dana Mele

Going in to this book, I didn’t know is was sapphic, and to be honest, the blurb doesn’t hint at it very much. In fact, I put off borrowing this audiobook from my library for a few weeks because I assumed it would be a usual hetero-style romance thing, which it most definitely was not. […]

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‚Ķ 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 […]
