The Quest to Authordom Feature

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. For me, it’s been a bit stressful with NaNoWriMo almost over and being super behind and I started thinking about all things I don’t know about being a writer in the publishing world, whether it’s the “traditional” route or self-published. Which means that I’m definitely not the only one thinking about […]

Review – These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker & Kelly Zekas

Supernatural meets Victorian London in These Vicious Masks, a tale of powers set against strong themes of budding friendship and family. I’ve been told to read this book a number of times but it took me until now to actually get around to devouring it in one sitting. So yeah, it was good. I’ve seen it marketed as X-Men meets Jane […]

Review – Spells and Sorcery by S. Usher Evans

We open to Lexie, a teen girl on the eve of her 15th birthday and guess what? She has magic! Add in a few trope-type sisters, a mysterious but wise older man who somehow makes her understand that magic exists better than her own family, and you have the start of this story. I got all of 3% before putting […]

From what I’ve noticed, they tend to be either new or unreleased titles. I’m not putting the blame on any one person and […]

Returning to the world of ReMade, Holden, Seyah, and Umta from episode 1 are now on the ground of what may very well be an alien planet. They find themselves greeted by others who know as little as they do about what happened to them. This time around, we see the world from May’s perspective, a Harvard hopeful who’s dreams […]

When The Book Just Isn’t Working For You

This month has been rough in the reading department. For someone like me who rarely rates books lower than 3 stars, I’ve had a DNF and looking toward another. To date, I don’t think I have more than 10-15 DNF titles so 2 in a month is unusual. And for ratings I have no issues rating lower than 3 stars […]

Review – Shadow Fall by Audrey Grey

Shadow Fall started strong and ended mediocre. Maia has lived in the darkness for several years when she’s brought to the surface to become someone else and have her chance at revenge against the man who had her father murdered. She’s flawed — intent on survival and somewhat of a coward — but this made her a stronger protagonist, I think. […]
