What I'm Reading

What I’m reading right now? Jurassic Park by Crichton on audio and Black Butterflies by John Shirley. 

March 2016

Switch by Sean Michael — I’d missed this one

The Crawling Abattoir by Martin Mundt — utterly hilarious. I embarrassed my wife on the plane cackling.

Dollhouse by Anya Allyn — this was like watching a TV pilot. Not for me.

Taken by VM Black — fast paced, great heroine

Wicked for You by Erzabet Bishop — great worldbuilding

Toybox by Al Sarrantonio — very King-esque but nothing happens.

27 Action Writing Blunders by James Scott Bell — for beginners only

February 2016 (total: 7)

Challenge the Darkness by Dirk Greyson — I absolutely adored this. Bought the 2nd in the series already. Charming, warm, good world building.

The Curious Case of Winter King by Kiernan Kelly — a fab, fun homage to Stephen King. I loved it.

Tattered Loyalties by Carrie Ann Ryan — tons of world-building and I loved the heroine of this one.

Entwined by Colette Gale — this is hilarious. A retelling of Tarzan and Jane

Marked by SJD Peterson — I think I must have read this before. It’s very familiar.

Pornography and Seriality by Sarah Schaschek — fascinating theory. I’m not sure I agree 100%, but fascinating.

Krampus by Brom — the charm at the front didn’t hold up.

January 2016 (total: 5)

Dom of Las Vegas by Tricia Owens — On the good, the sex was hot, the main character was interesting. On the not so good, the main character had detailed on-screen sex with a number of other characters and, in a romance, that’s not for me. The writing style was fine and I quite liked the secondary characters. 

Nightmare House by Douglas Clegg — I’m usually a HUGE Clegg fan, but I did not enjoy this one. I found it neither scare nor atmospheric. I was disappointed.

A Fashionable Indulgence by KJ Charles — took me about 1/4 of the book to get into this one, but once I did, I found it clever and charming and I actually had a couple LOL moments.

Bazaar of Dreams by Stephen King — The best part (and I don’t mean this in a nasty way) was the notes before each story. Loved it.

Collected Short Stories by Andre Debus — I am madly in love with the way this man writes. One of his short stories changed how I saw life. 

Much love, y’all.
