Kill the Boy Band: Or How I Learned to Love Fandom

Just know from the start that it wasn’t supposed to go like this. All we wanted was to get near them. That’s why we got a room in the hotel where they were staying. We were not planning to kidnap one ...

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.

8 Great

Soundless

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.

A Court of Thorns and Roses Review

A Court of Thorns and Roses was a fun read with awesome world building. It may not be the most serious life changing novel you will ever read but it was an enjoyable ride. If you like the modern faeri...

A Book of Spirits and Thieves

A Book of Spirits and Thieves doesn't have the same addictive quality as the later books in Morgan Rhodes' Falling Kingdom Series. The plots don't mess, the characters aren't super likeable and overal...
