Weekly reading, vol. 16

Howdy! That was some break, there. It worked out great for me, though, as I think I finally got some of my blogging mojo back. I’m gonna try this weekly round-up thing again and see if I can stick to it. Meanwhile, I have been (semi) active on Twitter and VERY active on Goodreads, so if y’all want to follow me on either of those channels in case this one ever goes dark again. Which Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 15

Here’s what I read from March 6th to March 12th! Super short reviews, because I haven’t blogged in almost a month. (School, work, life, you know. Stuff happens.) Shadows & Dreams by Alexis Hall is the second in the Kate Kane, Paranormal Investigator urban fantasy mystery series and it is almost as good as the first one. I liked the mystery and the wacky paranormal stuff1, plus the humor! And I love love love Elise, Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 11

Totally forgot to post this on Sunday, whoops! My first book for this week was Chasing Death Metal Dreams by Kaje Harper , a contemporary romance starring a transgender PoC protag with a death metal band and a wannabe artist with a history of bad boyfriends. It’s got super hot sexytimes and a slow-burn emotional connection, and you can read it for free! I very much enjoyed it, despite how prickly all the characters were. Read More …

Very quick reviews: December 2015, part 3 (romances)

Very quick reviews: November 2015, part 4 (yet more romances)

This is the last of the November batch reviews! Huzzah! As a sidenote, I wanted to let everyone know that Marvel Unlimited has a promo going for a free month’s subscription using the code FORCE. If you’ve been wanting to read series like Hawkeye, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Deadpool, etc., this would be a really great way to get ahold of them for cheap!

Spectr vol. 1 by Jordan L. Hawk

A novella series is tough to review; each book is just a little too short to write about on its own and trying to do the whole series at once is super tiring. But I really liked these books so I’m gonna give it a shot. Hunter of demons So basically all these books are short, but good. I do prefer full-length novels to almost anything else, but novellas are fun because you can finish Read More …

Mystic, Remnant, Some Kind of Magic

I read this because of Memory! Also G. Willow Wilson is writing Ms. Marvel now (which I very much enjoyed) and I wanted to try another of her books. This one’s about two friends: one destined to be a great magician and one who, well, isn’t. It is super short– maybe too short, as the story moves along at a breakneck pace and character development suffers as a result. With only 96 pages there isn’t Read More …
