a_perfect_storm

I was given the chance to review the fourth and final novel of Lori Foster’s “Men Who Walk The Edge of Honor” series earlier this month, and was pretty surprised by how much I enjoyed A Perfect Storm. Following right where the third book left off, A Perfect Storm continues into the world of human trafficking and how our main characters, Spencer and Arizona, attempt […]

The Company of the Dead by David Kowalski [Review]

company-of-the-dead-cover-image

What is there to say about David Kowalski’s The Company of the Dead? Let’s start with the premise of the (long) novel. What do you think would happen if the Titanic never hit the iceberg and consequently never sank? Time travel in pop culture tells us nothing good can ever come from trying to change the past (Hello, Back to the Future, anyone?) but that’s […]

WomanthologyHeroic

I don’t know where to begin with this review of Womanthology. I’ve been following this crazy project since it’s inception on Twitter and an just beyond ecstatic that Womanthology is finally released to the public. Let me give you a little bit of back story before delving into this review. Womanthology all began with a single Tweet, and through this act a group of female […]

How To Eat A Cupcake By Meg Donohue [Review]

how_to_Eat_a_cupcake_meg_donohue

I’m not going to lie; it was the title and the cover that inspired me to take on the task of reviewing How to Eat a Cupcake by Meg Donohue. You know that old adage “never judge a book by its cover”? Well, I did. And I’m so very glad I did. How to Eat a Cupcake isn’t a book that will solve your life […]

Daniel Pyne is best known for his screenwriting skills. He’s currently writing for that small little show Alcatraz, and because of this is no stranger to mystery and suspense. I was ecstatic that I had a chance to read and review his novel A Hole In The Ground Owned By A Liar. Pyne did not disappoint. The intriguing title aside (which comes from a quote […]

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness [Review]

I read a lot about the supernatural and mythology. When I say a lot what I mean is my bookshelves tend to look like something out of an occult shop. Generally I find supernatural fiction to be trite, contrived, and books that should never be written, but I’m pleased to say that Deborah Harkness’ debut novel A Discovery of Witches breaks all of these stereotypes.

The Death of King Arthur: The Immortal Legend By Peter Ackroyd

The Death of King Arthur

I read Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur when I was sixteen and fell in love wtih the book. I’ve always been a huge fan of The Arthurian legend (something I can thank my mother for; we’d listen to the Camelot soundtrack almost daily), and when I was offered the chance to review Peter Ackroyd’s retelling of the classic in The Death of King Arthur: […]

Gig Posters Volume 2 [Review]

Gig Posters 2

Normally books that I review have a very specific plot that they follow. Not so with Gig Posters Volume 2. Instead of a story, this is the second installment of posters from various artists displaying different musical artists. It was awesome! This volume is huge – 11 x 14, and not only is it 208 pages of amazing artwork, you also get 101 posters that […]

The Boy Who Loved Batman: A Memoir By Michael Uslan [Review]

TheBoyWhoLovedBatman

What kid hasn’t dreamed about bringing Batman to life? Even the non comic book reading children know who the iconic Dark Knight is, and I’d wager you’d be hard pressed to find a child who, hadn’t (at some point) pretended to be the Caped Crusader saving Gotham from the Joker. While this is a childhood dream, how many adults can step up and say they […]

Dark Eden By Patrick Carman [Review]

Dark Eden

You know how people always tell you to face your fears? Well, what if your fears are so crippling that even your doctor can help you get past them? Such in the story of Dark Eden by Patrick Carman. More psychological than horror, Dark Eden follows the story of seven teens that are sent on a retreat to face their phobias. Will Besting is one […]
