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: “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: “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

Series Review: “Shades of Magic” by VE Schwab

I finished this book on December 28, but I wanted to have all of the First Impression Friday entries done before I went through with this review. I have to say, I am still sitting here, about ten minutes after finishing the last book, just in shock at what I read. What did I read? … Continue reading Series Review: “Shades of Magic” by VE Schwab

Book Review: “My Lady Jane” by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

I've had this book on my shelf for a long time. I bought it on impulse sometime last year (summer? early fall?), and got about 10 pages into it before putting it down, never to pick it up again. I put it on my list of books to read in 2019 (and as part of … Continue reading Book Review: “My Lady Jane” by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

Book Review: “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” by Fredrik Backman

I previewed this book a few weeks ago on a First Impression Friday post, and I actually finished it a long time ago but never got around to writing a review for it. I'm here to remedy that now. This book ended up going in a completely different direction than I was expecting. That's the … Continue reading Book Review: “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” by Fredrik Backman
