Review: The Merciless by Danielle Vega

Review: The Merciless by Danielle Vega

What a weird little book.  The Merciless is a mash-up of the films, The Craft and Heathers, but with a main character who is all sorts of jaw-droppingly stupid.  Sofia is the new girl in school, and on her first day, she already has two factions fighting for her attention.  One is the bad-ass chick, Brooklyn, and the other is a group of popular girls, led by Riley and her sidekicks, Alexis and Grace.  Both Brooklyn and Riley are eager… Read more »

Review: The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

Review: The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

Before I even start to discuss the plot of The Good Girl, I have to mention the formatting of the e-ARC I read, which is the worst I’ve ever seen.  (That is, I hope it’s ONLY the formatting of the e-ARC.  If the finished copy – or even the physical ARC - is formatted like this, it’s inexplicable.)  There are three POV’s in The Good Girl – all first person (the kidnapper, the mother of the kidnap victim, and the detective), and… Read more »

Review: The Last Policeman by Ben Winters

Review: The Last Policeman by Ben Winters

It’s impossible to read The Last Policeman and not think about what you would do in the event of an impending, doomsday-level asteroid strike on earth.  I have to admit that I find the idea exciting, in the same way that I find the ideas of a zombie apocalypse or an alien invasion exciting.  (Yeah, I’m weird like that.)  While I’ve read and watched my share of post-apocalyptic books and films, pre-apocalyptic stories seem to be a bit harder to… Read more »

Ten Authors Crowding My Bookshelves

Ten Authors Crowding My Bookshelves

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given, and this week’s topic is: TEN AUTHORS CROWDING MY BOOKSHELVES This was a fun topic – from which authors do I own the most books?  Fun, because until I started looking at my shelves and Kindle and Audible account, I didn’t know all of the authors who would make this list.  My rules for making this list – I didn’t include… Read more »

Review: Open Road Summer by Emery Lord

Review: Open Road Summer by Emery Lord

I have to start off this review by discussing the main character of Open Road Summer, Reagan O’Neill.  This is what my grandmother would have to say about her: “She’s a pill.”  And I would reply, “Grandma, you’re being way too nice.”  I think Reagan was supposed to be written as the bad girl with a heart of gold; the tough chick who just needed a guy to crack her shell.  Instead, what I saw a girl who despised and… Read more »
