BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: REVIEWS OF EARCS/ARCS FOR THE LAZY (7)

Welcome to another edition of Better Late Than Never: Reviews of eARCs/ARCs for the Lazy! Do you have review copies piling up? Do you have eARCs that you requested but never got to because you got overwhelmed by life? Or did you just bite off more than you can chew? (That’s me.) At some point I was still hoping I could review these books (even though my review wouldn’t really be of use to the publisher anymore) because it would be still useful to readers, and also to me, because the pile-up was giving me anxiety every time I thought more »

Book Review: The Sky Is Yours

I’ll confess, I’m not really a big fan of reading stories with dragons in them. I’m okay if dragons are part of the story, but not if the story revolves around dragons. But I requested The Sky Is Yours because it sounded truly unique, and it definitely was–I’m just not sure it was the kind of unique that I enjoy. The story revolves around a pair of dragons, one green, one yellow, that one day emerge from the ocean. The reason why is a complete mystery, but for many years the dragons torment Empire Island, burning down buildings in a more »

Book Review: Killman Creek

I’ve decided I will read anything Rachel Caine writes. It’s not a hard decision, really. I’m in the middle of her Great Library series that I love so much. I started and enjoyed Morganville Vampires, but then I got tired of vampires, though I will return to it at some point because it was really good. And now this: it’s the first adult series of Rachel’s that I have read, but it’s probably my favorite thing that she has written. I am not sure how long this series is; it may only be these two books because the end was more »

Book Review: Artemis

First things first, I have NOT read The Martian. It’s on my very large list of books to read, but I haven’t had the chance to get to it yet, and now after reading Artemis, let me just say I’m not going to be in a hurry. I know, I know, so many love it, but I absolutely hated the voice in this novel, and I’ve read several reviews that state it’s very similar to the voice in The Martian (and works better there), and I just don’t want to go through that again anytime soon. There are excessive exclamation more »
