About Tizzy

Book Review: I Hunt Killers, by Barry Lyga

In case you've wondering who this Tizzy guy is, although his title of Destroyer of Worlds and Eater of the Innocent should really suffice.

Salem's Witches

Book Review: I Hunt Killers, by Barry Lyga

A trio of amateur heroines battle an evil, lawsuit-happy science-fiction cult in the first novel in the Neitherlands series.

Book Review: I Hunt Killers, by Barry Lyga

Book Review: I Hunt Killers, by Barry Lyga

I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga April 03, 2012 Review rating 3/5 I must start by saying this is actually a good novel. It is entertaining, weaves a story that remains interesting throughout, and has a few rather memorable characters or scenes. In fact, in general it is a very skillfully told tale about the […]

Book Review: The Song of Achilles, by Madeline Miller

Book Review: The Song of Achilles, by Madeline Miller

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller September 20, 2011 Review rating 5/5 A tale as old as time. Perhaps rather literally here, as this is a retelling of the Iliad, an epic poem that has been making the rounds for over three millennia and of which the reader might perhaps have a passing awareness […]

Book Review: Rosemary and Rue (October Daye, #1) by Seanan McGuire

Book Review: Rosemary and Rue (October Daye, #1) by Seanan McGuire

Rosemary and Rue (October Daye, #1) by Seanan McGuire September 1, 2009 Review rating 4/5 This is the best Urban Fantasy novel I’ve read, though then again only UF series I’ve read are the first two books of Shadowhunters (which has a decent storyline but reeks of incest too much for my taste) and the […]

Book Review: Into the Drowning Deep (Rolling in the Deep #1), by Mira Grant

Book Review: Into the Drowning Deep (Rolling in the Deep #1), by Mira Grant

Into the Drowning Deep (Rolling in the Deep #1) by Mira Grant November 14, 2017 Review rating 4/5 A horror film disguised as a book. That’s the main thing I can say about Mira Grant’s Into the Drowning Deep: It feels, and reads, very much like a horror film. In that way it’s different from […]

Book Review: The Dalai Lama’s Cat, by David Michie

Book Review: The Dalai Lama’s Cat, by David Michie

A cute tale about an arguably Buddhist cat and his experience living with the Dalai Lama.

Book Review: Space Opera, by Catherynne M. Valente

Book Review: Space Opera, by Catherynne M. Valente

Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente April 10, 2018 Review rating 3/5 Sometimes less is more. This teaching is often useful with books, as many authors are prone to overwriting and delivering far more information on their stories than any reader could ever find necessary. Sadly, this is a pitfall that Space Opera falls square […]

Book Review: The Sea of Trolls, by Nancy Farmer

Book Review: The Sea of Trolls, by Nancy Farmer

The Sea of Trolls by Nancy Farmer Jan 28, 2004 Review rating 5/5 A return to the sea… I first read this novel back in 2007, and I absolutely loved it back then. For years I meant to read it again, and only this week I managed to open a space on my reading schedule […]

Book Review: The Blood of Olympus, by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Blood of Olympus, by Rick Riordan

The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan Oct 07, 2014 Review rating 4/5 A fitting ending to the series, although not the best book in them. Having decided I’d finish reading this series relatively quickly for my standards (I never read two books in a series back to back to prevent author burnout, usually waiting […]

Book Review: The Outsider, by Stephen King

Book Review: The Outsider, by Stephen King

The Outsider by Stephen King May 22, 2018 Review rating 4/5 A thrilling tale. This is the first time I ever read a King book the same year it releases, let alone on release date. And I’m glad to report this is one of those King books that are worth the price, the wait, the […]

Book Review: Artificial Condition (Murderbot Diaries #2), by Martha Wells

Book Review: Artificial Condition (Murderbot Diaries #2), by Martha Wells

Artificial Condition (Murderbot Diaries #2) by Martha Wells May 8, 2018 Review rating 4/5 Murderbot is back for seconds. Now, I wish I could say this book is better than All Systems Red, but in truth, it isn’t. No that that is a problem, anyway. All Systems Red was outright excellent, so I’m fine with […]
