Book Review: ECHO Campaign

ECHO Campaign by Taylor Brooke My rating: 5 of 5 stars ECHO Campaign is the second installment in the Isolation Series. A twisty plot, beautiful prose, and a ton of tension made this book fly by. In the first book, Omen Operation, the characters were on the run. In Echo Campaign, they’re caught, adapting toContinue reading “Book Review: ECHO Campaign”

Book Review: Ignite the Stars

I received a copy Ignite the Stars from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This one is longer than some of my other reviews, but this book, with its strengths and flaws, is important and needs more words. When I looked at the other reviews on Goodreads, one of the first ones quoted someoneContinue reading “Book Review: Ignite the Stars”

Book Review: Ruin of Stars

Ruin of Stars by Linsey Miller My rating: 5 of 5 stars I received a free electronic copy of Ruin of Stars, the sequel to Mask of Shadows, in exchange for an honest review.

Book Review: Our Dark Stars by  Audrey Grey and Krystal Wade

I received a copy of “Our Dark Stars by  Audrey Grey and Krystal Wade on NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

A few words about “Butter is Not a Dress”

I don’t write a lot of poetry, and I only share a fraction of what I do write. Every once and a while, I come up with a piece I am very proud of. One of those pieces is featured in this anthology. When speaking with people, I struggle to express my gender identity andContinue reading “A few words about “Butter is Not a Dress””

Book Review: Salt

Salt by Hannah Moskowitz My rating: 3 of 5 stars Salt is an odd little book. I love the characters, but the plot and the world-building left me feeling a little cheated. Indi is an orphan and a monster hunter, sailing with his older sister and two younger siblings, looking for the monster that killedContinue reading “Book Review: Salt”

Book Review: Roberto to the Dark Tower Came

Roberto to the Dark Tower Came by Tom Epperson My rating: 4 of 5 stars Roberto to the Dark Tower Came needs ALL the trigger warnings: Gore, death, torture, sexual assault, rape, cruelty to animals, death of animals, language, whatever you can think of.

Book Review: Mask of Shadows

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller My rating: 4 of 5 stars Mask of Shadows has been on my TBR list for a while, but it took being on a vacation in a cabin with no internet and inconsistent, minimal phone service for me to finally pick it up and dig in. Why did IContinue reading “Book Review: Mask of Shadows”

Book Review: Ardulum Third Don

Ardulum: Third Don by J.S. Fields My rating: 5 of 5 stars Review coming soon4.5 Stars Ardulum Third Don was the perfect ending to the trilogy.
