It Takes Death to Reach a Star by Stu Jones and Gareth Worthington – #TLCBookTours Review

  Wow. Just wow. I haven’t read anything sci-fi or dystopian in a while, so I had zero expectations going in to It Takes Death to Reach a Star by Stu Jones and Gareth Worthington. The blurb sounded interesting and what I found inside of the pages was phenomenally well-thought out, researched, and executed. Set two […]

The Doll Funeral by Kate Hamer – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  I really enjoyed Kate Hamer’s The Girl in the Red Coat as the mystery/thriller pulled at my heartstrings while it dealt with a mother whose son had been kidnapped. The author has changed gears a little with her next novel, The Doll Funeral, and has headed into the territory of blending multiple genres successfully. While […]

Audiobook Review – Swords and Scoundrels (The Duelists Trilogy #1) by Julia Knight

Sword play, intrigue, subterfuge, and double crosses– Swords and Scoundrels is an epic adventure fantasy full of these and more. The world of Swords and Scoundrels is one of magicians, nobles, the working poor, duelists used for protection, a king grasping for power while the duelist guild wants power as well. Priests and the public worship the […]

Review and Giveaway – Dark Screams Volume Four – Brian James Freeman (Editor) and Richard Chizmar (Editor)

The Dark Screams anthologies edited by Richard Chizmar and Brian James Freeman have been pretty solid in terms of great short horror stories, but Dark Screams Volume Four is the first one where I enjoyed every single story in the volume. Horror heavy hitters such as Clive Barker and Heather Graham are featured and aren’t […]

Review and Giveaway Blog Tour – Clownfellas: Tales of the Bozo Family by Carlton Mellick III

My only previous experience with anything Carlton Mellick III was when my uncle, who has some pretty eclectic literature tastes, asked for the author’s Razor Wire Pubic Hair for Christmas when it came out quite a few years ago. I clearly remember ordering it in person from a rather perplexed looking Barnes and Noble salesman, […]

Blog Tour Giveaway and Review – Wonderfully Wicked by C. J. Burright

Wonderfully Wicked is such a stunning and layered fantasy meets paranormal romance, and I certainly enjoyed every second that I was absorbed in this unique world where Dreamcasters and Valkara co-exist in our reality. Kalila has always been different. She’s always had nightmares instead of dreams, and the creatures in them have always been able to […]

Review: Valour and Vanity by Mary Robinette Kowal

Pushy:  Can I just start this review out with a WOW!?!  I didn’t think we could get down to a deeper level with Vincent and Jane after Without A Summer and then BAM!  Valour and Vanity just floored me!  After the last book, where the focus was shifted onto the dynamic of Jane and Vincent’s work and Jane’s relationship with Melody, […]

A Better World by Marcus Sakey

My Thoughts: Brilliance was one of my favorite books of 2013, and I’ve eagerly awaited the release of the second installment in this sci-fi thriller series featuring a world where 1% of the population have startlingly enhanced intellects or abilities. The mark of a great followup is one where the book can standalone–one that you […]
