August 2020 — A Wrap-Up

Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh If you want to quickly catch-up on what happened in the book before this one, here’s my review. If you’re already up to speed, keep reading. So, this book was the most filler book of em all. All we get to see is how life is for the various couples…

July 2020 — A Wrap-Up

Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine As I review this book, the news of Rachel Caine’s passing is still fresh. I’ve loved reading her work and am sad that we won’t get to see what else she would have dazzled us with. When it comes to this installment, I think I can sum it up with…

It was a very quick read for me and I had no problems connecting with the protagonists. I would say that the lead couple…

September 2019 — A Wrap-Up

Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood and the Story of a Return by Marjane Satrapi I would have bought all the propaganda against the revolution. I really would have. Except for these two things. One, the author didn’t wasn’t heroic or patriotic, she came across as a petulant child. And what’s more, she showed no…

Death in Delft by Graham Brack

I had recently read a historical murder mystery and found it to be disappointing. So, going in, I wasn’t expecting much out of this one either. But that was before I encountered the self-deprecating style of the narrator. The protagonist is a cleric who’s secretly Catholic but owes his job and living to his being…
