Review and Squawk: The Dark Tower by Stephen King

Review and Squawk: The Dark Tower by Stephen King

So here’s the deal . . . THE DARK TOWER obliterated my long-running book funk. I read all ten of the original series graphic novels, then I read the five from the spinoff. FIFTEEN graphic novels. In like three days. Then I had to read the real thing. #cantstopwontstop Why? B/c after reading all FIFTEEN […]

Review: The Rose Mark by Connie Suttle (@subtledemon)

Review: The Rose Mark by Connie Suttle (@subtledemon)

It’s been years since I’ve read something by Connie Suttle which is a real shame because she’s an incredibly talented author, and THE ROSE MARK reminded me of that fact. Neither teething baby nor attention deprived husband could tear me away from this book! I shudder to think that I almost passed on it in […]

Review: Elephants and Corpses by Kameron Hurley

Review: Elephants and Corpses by Kameron Hurley

I’ve really loved this series since i read the first book. I love the characters. The banter is wonderful. The romance isn’t the strongest I’ve read, but it is good.

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Anytime a book is surrounded in as much hype as CARAVAL, I try to go into reading it with lowered expectations. BUT. Said hype seldom stops me from actually reading it. Not b/c I’m a lemming, but b/c curiosity. *shakes fist at curiosity gods* That being said, beyond the pretty, pretty cover and the quote, […]

Review: Pretty Deadly Vol. 1 by Kelly Sue DeConnick

Review: Pretty Deadly Vol. 1 by Kelly Sue DeConnick

There’s a special kind of chaos that went into the creation of PRETTY DEADLY. The installments begin from the POV of a bunny and a butterfly, told fable-style, but as the main characters are human, there’s a significance to our animal narrators that isn’t immediately understood. I say “understood” b/c there’s a lot that is […]
