By | Monday, October 9, 2017|15 Comments

Well, its that time again. Time for me to tell you all about the books lately that didn’t make the cut. All of these books got DNF’d because I wasn’t enjoying the reading. It’s unfortunate, but it does happen. My apologies to the authors and publishers in advance.   DNF at 43% – […]

Review: THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE by Katherine Arden

By | Monday, September 18, 2017|8 Comments

*This trailer features the European cover for this book. THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE really took me by surprise. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it was not this.

By | Friday, May 12, 2017|8 Comments

After reading MR.MERCEDES I knew I would have to finish this series. Stephen King is one of my favorite authors and his delve into police procedural is pretty fucking fantastic. Bill Hodges is a perfectly flawed hero and I grew to really love him. In FINDER’S KEEPERS we meet a kid named Pete […]

Review: THE MOST DANGEROUS PLACE ON EARTH by Lindsey Lee Johnson

By | Wednesday, January 18, 2017|9 Comments

I have to be honest and tell you how uncomfortable this book made me. In reading about these high school kids fumble through their social and educational settings, I had a knot in the pit of my stomach. I don’t want to think about those years, those uncomfortable settings, allowing things spin out […]
