Goodbye Lemon

Goodbye Lemon By Adam Davies Okay, gang. Get out your tissues and your dictionaries—as is tradition with a Davies novel. While The Frog King and Mine All Mine are both pretty good in their own right, Goodbye Lemon stands out from this crowd of three. Fair warning though: this book is an emotionally taxing read.

The Miniaturist

The Miniaturist By Jessie Burton This book isn’t my usual vein of historical fiction. I’m partial to Tudor era drama whenever I delve into the genre. However, I did like The Miniaturist overall. Its pace is slow, but the writing is solid and enjoyable. Nothing felt overly described or melodramatic. Sometimes the narrator, Nella, felt

The 100: Rebellion

The 100: Rebellion By Kass Morgan Another series down! I had a lot more issues with The 100: Rebellion than I had with the third book, The 100: Homecoming. Some of the complaints are the same, but there are a few shiny, new ones. First up though, I liked the cult. The cult was cool.

The 100: Homecoming

The 100: Homecoming By Kass Morgan Alrighty, I just finished this one, and I’m not as impressed with it as I was The 100 or The 100: Day 21. My biggest issue was the feeling that there was no real character growth. The 100: Homecoming takes place over a greater amount of time than the

The 100: Day 21

The 100: Day 21 By Kass Morgan Wow, okay! The TV series took an absolutely huge leap from the books! That’s all I’ll say on that. If you thought The 100 was a fast read, get ready for this one! These books have a case of the zoomies. Once again, I got through this one

The 100

The 100 By Kass Morgan I had a lot more fun with this book than I thought I would! I did watch the full TV series (a few years ago now) before ever touching the books. But really, the TV series took a different direction than the books: another one of those “inspired by” rather

Mine All Mine

Mine All Mine By Adam Davies I liked Mine All Mine way more than Davies’ The Frog King. You’ll still need your dictionary! But your narrator will be much more likable this time. Otto, the main character and narrator, feels human. He has issues: some he ignores, some he grumbles at, and some he faces,

The Haunted Train

The Haunted Train: Creepy Tales from the Railways Edited by Rayne Hall First off, I love that the editor left each story it its original American or British English! I really feel that adds to a reader’s impressions, perceptions, and assumptions when consuming literature. I was also very happy to see a decent selection of
