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

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.

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 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

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 […]

Book Review: Leah on the Offbeat (Creekwood #2), by Becky Albertalli

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 […]

Book Review: Of Magic and Memory, by Cristy Zinn

Book Review: Of Magic and Memory, by Cristy Zinn

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. Only, […]

Book Review: Maintenant qu’il fait tout le temps nuit sur toi, by Mathias Malzieu

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.

Book Review: The Upside of Unrequited, by Becky Albertalli

Book Review: The Upside of Unrequited, by Becky Albertalli

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?
