#BookReview Sex and Death Edited by Sarah Hall and Peter Hobbs

Sex and Death is a mixed bag of stories full of, you guessed it, sex and death. This anthology features a large array of short stories. I say it's a mixed bag because, like any set of stories, some of them are amazing and some of them don't hit as well. What I've found is… Continue reading #BookReview Sex and Death Edited by Sarah Hall and Peter Hobbs

#BookReview White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Many, many years ago I saw this book at a local Wal-Mart and had one of those "OMG I NEED IT" moments. I bought this book, put it on a bookshelf, buried it in said bookshelf, and then lost it until I reorganized my entire house. When I reorganized all of my books I decided… Continue reading #BookReview White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

#BookReview Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Steifvater

Blue Lily, Lily Blue was an intriguing novel. It's my own fault that I didn't enjoy this book as much as I could have. It has been YEARS (and I mean, literally years - probably five?) since I've read the first two books in this series (The Raven Boys and The Dream Theives) so I… Continue reading #BookReview Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Steifvater

#BookReview The Age of the Child by Kristen J. Tsetsi

The Age of the Child by Kristen J. Tsetsi is a dystopian novel where women's rights are violated. You could pitch this book as a companion to The Handmaid's Tale - since this book involves a dystopian world where women are forced to give birth (no birth control and no abortions). To be blunt, I… Continue reading #BookReview The Age of the Child by Kristen J. Tsetsi

#BookReview Kissing Coffins by Ellen Schreiber

Ah, yes. Another throwback from my teen years - Kissing Coffins, the second book in the marvelous Vampire Kisses series. Just a gentle reminder, these books are Young Adult novels with young, lovely characters who act like immature kids (because, they are YOUNG). If you're looking for a True Blood or Game of Thrones level… Continue reading #BookReview Kissing Coffins by Ellen Schreiber

#BookReview Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey

I originally bought Haunting Violet when it first came out (way back in 2011... my gosh, it has been a long time). It ended up on my shelf and floated around for years, and I mean YEARS. I've been staring at this book for most of 2019 knowing full well I wanted to read it.… Continue reading #BookReview Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey

#BookReview I Am Thunder by Muhammad Khan

I am Thunder by Muhammad Khan was a pleasant surprise! I love books that let me inside another person's life and culture, and I am Thunder met the bill! This book welcomes the reader into a Muslim and Pakistani lifestyle which is something totally new to me. I've seen the headlines, I've had classmates, but… Continue reading #BookReview I Am Thunder by Muhammad Khan
