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.
A trio of amateur heroines battle an evil, lawsuit-happy science-fiction cult in the first novel in the Neitherlands series.
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 […]
Leah on the Offbeat (Creekwood #2) by Becky Albertalli April 24, 2018 Review rating 3/5 Light spoilers for Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and Leah on the Offbeat follow. Read at your own risk. There’s a saying about sequels never being as good as the original, and it’s usually applied to works originally meant […]
Of Magic and Memory by Cristy Zinn November 28, 2017 Review rating 4/5 Very much a modern-day fairy tale. After her mother’s sudden passing, Ava finds herself alone as the world lacks what everyone used to think of as her mother’s magic, that touch and attitude with which she made everywhere a better place.

Maintenant Qu’il Fait Tout Le Temps Nuit Sur Toi by Mathias Malzieu March 2, 2005 Review rating 3/5 A different kind of book. I picked up this book a few years ago while traveling through france, specifically in a small library in Paris that I shall remember if only because it’s one of the few […]
As the finale nears, Heroes of Olympus finally starts feeling like home in what is the best book in the series so far.
In her sophomore effort, Albertalli delivers a heartwarming, somewhat darker storyline. But does she manage to replicate the uniqueness of Simon Vs. The Homo-Sapiens Agenda?
A good, thought not outstanding, sequel to a great sci-fi read that adds its share of problems as it attempts to make its own, at times convoluted plot move ahead.
A flawed sequel to a great book, The Toyminator shows us what happens when a novel falls in love with its own concept.
An interesting, thrilling start to a now well-known sci-fi series focused on characters rather than technology or world-building.
