Book Review: “They Did Bad Things” by Lauren A. Finny

As mentioned in my previous First Impression Friday post, They Did Bad Things is June's book for the Fantastic Stranglings Book Club, run by Jenny Lawson at The Bloggess. (She's opening a bookstore in San Antonio called Nowhere Bookshop, and it's on my bucket list to visit at least once in my life!) I always try to … Continue reading Book Review: “They Did Bad Things” by Lauren A. Finny

Book Review: “The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle” by Stuart Turton

I finished this book in two days, only because I had to go to sleep on the first day or risk passing out at work the following day. I even bought a new charging cord for my ancient Kindle Keyboard 3 (that's how old it is!) so I could read this book on the Kindle … Continue reading Book Review: “The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle” by Stuart Turton

Book Review: “Catherine House” by Elisabeth Thomas

I received Catherine House through my Fantastic Stranglings Book Club subscription for the month of May. After the disappointment of last month's book, this was exactly what I was looking for, although it still didn't leave me satisfied at the end. The book is split into three separate parts, for the three years that Ines spends at … Continue reading Book Review: “Catherine House” by Elisabeth Thomas

Book Review: “Wow, No Thank You” by Samantha Irby

I know I just previewed this book on Friday, but you also have to understand that at the pace I'm reading through books due to the Shelter-in-Place orders, I'm reading them way ahead of time and attempting to schedule things as best as I can. As mentioned Friday, this book is my April book from … Continue reading Book Review: “Wow, No Thank You” by Samantha Irby

Book Review: “Children of Blood & Bone” by Tomi Adeyemi

Let's mark this down as a historic moment: in the past two weeks, I have had three separate books that I have read on three separate days, and I have read those books in their entirety. (I spent like 10 minutes trying to figure out how to word that sentence, and I'm pretty sure that … Continue reading Book Review: “Children of Blood & Bone” by Tomi Adeyemi

Book Review: “The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home” by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor

Write this down: I have now finished two books in two two weeks, and I read them each in just a single day. It's been so long since I've done this that I really don't know how to deal with my feelings surrounding this! I previewed TFOWWSLIYH (man, I need a better acronym - what … Continue reading Book Review: “The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home” by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor

Book Review: “The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires” by Grady Hendrix

I knew I'd finish this book in one day. I just regret that I finished it after the sun went down. As I was preparing to write this review, I went and looked at the reviews for the book on Amazon. I guess I shouldn't have been shocked, but there are a lot of three … Continue reading Book Review: “The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires” by Grady Hendrix

Book Review: “American Sherlock: Murder, Forensics, and the Birth of American CSI” by Kate Winkler Dawson

What's this? I'm actually posting a book review on my book blog? Say it ain't so! But yes. I've finished a book that's not Wheel of Time-related, and I can finally post another book review. You might be surprised to see that it's for the book I just previewed two days ago, American Sherlock. But you really shouldn't be; I … Continue reading Book Review: “American Sherlock: Murder, Forensics, and the Birth of American CSI” by Kate Winkler Dawson

Book Review: “Mr. Churchill’s Secretary” by Susan Elia MacNeal

What is this? A book review? In my book blog?! How dare you! Oh, wait. That's the whole reason this blog was created in the first place. This week's book is Mr. Churchill's Secretary, by Susan Elia MacNeal. I picked it up on a whim at Barnes & Noble a few months ago (I think I've got … Continue reading Book Review: “Mr. Churchill’s Secretary” by Susan Elia MacNeal

Book Review: “Woman World” by Aminder Dhaliwal

Woman World started out as a webcomic on Instagram. I'm not 100% sure how I found it in the first place, but I followed it from almost the beginning (if not the beginning). When I found out Aminder was publishing it as a graphic novel, I pre-ordered it the second it was available. It's everything I'd hoped … Continue reading Book Review: “Woman World” by Aminder Dhaliwal
