Something Wicked

Something Wicked

My Review There are so many things to like about Something Wicked.  One of my favorite things about it was that the characters weren’t created to be perfect.  Ann and Kim had much in common with normal, everyday teenage girls.  Neither one were in the “in” crowd, but nor were they outcasts.  Ann was a less […]

The Lust Garden

The Lust Garden

My Review The Lust Garden is the debut novel from author Billy Jolie, and it does not read at all like a first work.  It was fiercely engaging, with a fantastic story and fabulous characters.  Although set amidst the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and New York, it is definately not a lighthearted, fluffy, “celeb” […]

Anathema

Anathema

My Review Anathema is the first in a new trilogy by Megg Jensen, and a wonderful start to it.  The story centers around Reychel, a slave girl who has known no other life than that of slavery.  But, even though she is a slave, she has always been treated differently by her master, mysteriously both being […]

44

44

My Review 44 was just about impossible to put down once I started.  From the very beginning, there was an air of mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat.  There was always a bit of the story that was just beyond my reach, a piece missing that was integral to Abby’s story.  […]

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis

My Review Metamorphosis is the fourth short story in the authors “Twelve Terrifying Tales for 2011” series.  This is the 3rd one I’ve read (I missed March!) and as fantastically chilling as the previous installments.  What I love most about the stories is the author pulls no punches in creating a graphic, chilling tale.  They […]

The Device

The Device

My Review The Device is the debut novel by author Patirck Skelton, a dystopian/science fiction novel that I just couldn’t put down.  I am usually not a big science fiction fan because all too frequently the sci fi aspects become the entire focus, overpower the characters and their humanity, as well as overwhelming the story […]

S.L. Schmitz, author of Let It Bleed, Guest Post

S.L. Schmitz, author of Let It Bleed, Guest Post

I did something when I wrote my book that no author should ever do – I didn’t give my female character a name.  Well, let me re-phrase that statement. Her real name is mentioned once or twice, buried in the text… but for most of the novel, I have referred to my primary character only […]

Let It Bleed

Let It Bleed

My Review Let It Bleed is the debut novel by author S.L. Schmitz, and a truly unique one.  Set in the 1980’s underground punk scene in Middle America, this story is not for the casual reader.  Much of it is written in a very stream of consciousness way.  The story is at times dark and very […]
