The Hazel Wood Review

Writing a review for The Hazel Wood was very difficult. Unlike a lot of the books that I read this year this novel was very plot driven. For the sake of spoilers I won’t really go into that. Loo...

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue Review

Every once in a while you come across a book that was clearly written just for you. I’m a sucker for Victorian Era inspired fiction, especially if it’s witty. After looking for recommendat...

The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

It's not hard to relate to Hawthorn's isolation, humor and obsession with Lizzie Lovett's disappearance. The book is strange, unforgettable and unpredictable as it reminds you of exactly what it's lik...

Winter Sky: A Novel

Winter Sky was a well paced story about a man trying to remember who is while surrounded by the horrors of war. Though short, the novel packs a punch that will stick with you for a while. If you're a ...

The Dirt Eaters

The Dirt Eaters is a smart, fast paced dystopian novel from the great white north. The prose may be brisk and difficult to get into, but if you give this story some time it will surprise you.

Soundless has an interesting premise, but fails in a boring cliche execution. You're not going to hate it, but overall it's not very memorable.

3.8 Bad

A Gathering of Shadows

A Gathering of Shadows puts its plot on hold to focus on developing its characters. It has a slow start but the ending is worth the wait.

8.2 Great

The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever

The premise of the The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever is not new and it brings nothing original. Jokes fall flat, characters are boring, and a lot of the "problems" are nonsensical. This book is almost as...

2.2 Awful

Glass Sword

Glass Sword delivers a sequel that in now way lives up to it's predecessor. Between a lack of character development and a petulant heroine there is very little to hold our interest in this novel.

1.4 Horrendous

Alexandra Reads Life and Death

Stephenie Meyer proved how gendered Twilight is with this rewrite. It wasn't her intention, but she did. All of the problems that existed with Twilight exist in this book including a subpar writing st...
