Ring Shout or The Hunting of Ku Kluxes In The End Times

Ring Shout continually slid along the scale between like and love. The premise is great! Evil hateful monsters in the guise of humans called, Ku Kluxes, enrapture other humans with their hateful machinations. African-American resistant fighters hunt them down and kill them.  It’s fictionalized history and revisionist Lovecraft put together. Taking place in 1922, the […]

A List of Reasonable Length Declaring Why Being Pen Pals Is Great!

Pen pals, having one and having been one, is something I’ve be reminiscing about recently. I’ve also been proposing that people start writing to other people. Either me, a friend, or – in true pen pal tradition – some rando. Being pen pals is a great way to connect again or for the first time. […]

Book Blurbs: “Do we need them?”

Book Blurbs were the topic of an article I read the other day. Essentially, the purpose and future of book blurbs were called into question. Who relies and is influenced by blurbs? Do they even help sell books? Some blurbs can ride the line between flippant and miracle item.  Book blurbs for me are simply […]

Pen Pals: Remember Those?

Remember pen pals? At some point in my grade school career I had one, from somewhere. Pennsylvania maybe? How fun was it to write and receive letters from a person on the other side of the country or perhaps world? Why did we – in general – stop the pen pal thing once we got […]

Hounded

Hounded is overall okay. It’s the first book in The Iron Druid Chronicles that currently sits at the count of nine, arguably ten, but whatever. Being that it’s the first book there are a lot introductions in this book. Characters and the world, are introduced and constructed well enough for the story. I just felt […]

The Guest List

The Guest List is a fantastic mystery novel. Lucy Foley has created a suspenseful story that never loosens its grip, but doesn’t exhaust the reader either.  She also seemed to have said “Hold my beer!” and engineered the entire story to keep the reader guessing the entire time. Which is what a mystery novel should […]

Word We Go Wrong? – Reminisced

Which is pretty Inceptiony. To go over one’s memory of going over one’s memory. Entering triple deep territory when one reminisces about the time they reminisced. This word gave me issue one recent morning. The sun was shining and birds were chirping, or so I assume the windows and blinds were closed. 

Remarkables: Book Review

Remarkables is okay. After reading a few post read reviews I now understand that this isn’t one of Margaret Peterson Haddix’s better books. It’s fine. I don’t regret reading it. Though I’m not sure how much I would recommend it. I’m not the demographic for the book, but I do not see my younger self […]

Gideon the Ninth: Lesbian Necromancers In Space!

You can read my spoiler free review here or over on goodreads. Gideon the Ninth is really good book. So good that I had to write about it with a bit more depth, while still striving to remain spoiler free. It’s the first book in The Locked Tomb Trilogy. If that name doesn’t give it […]
