The Hanging Game (2013)
3.48 of 5 Votes: 2
What a queer little thing. A fairy tale of sorts, and incredibly awkward. The writing was gorgeous, I just felt disconnected from the piece. The magical realism was perfectly constructed for such a short story, but also lost a bit because of the lack of depth. It read like a really great proposal...
Rita Hayworth's Shoes (2012)
3.39 of 5 Votes: 2
I adored The Girl, the Gold Tooth & Everything, so I was super stoked to read Rita Hayworth's Shoes. Francine LaSala's writing style is so unique, so absolutely singular. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. Now, about the book: Amy is a wonderful protagonist, very relatable in a girl...
Amish Vampires in Space (2014)

AViS has been on my books-I-need-to-read radar for a while now, but to be honest I don't read a lot in the Christian Speculative fiction market (not because I don't read spec-fi, but because I tend to read secular spec-fi) and so it didn't rise to the top until I read Neitz's 'A Star Curiously Si...

Rahasia Sunyi (2013)

aku suka dengan setting ceritanya yang eksotik di pelataran gunung kerinci. aku juga suka dengan premis alurnya yang berawal dengan perintah penyelidikan kematian seorang gadis, yg ternyata menyimpan banyak rahasia dan motif tersembunyi. ehhmm... itu saja. pertanyaan utama novel ini menurutku bel...
Bangladesh: A Legacy of Blood (2000)
4.25 of 5 Votes: 1
I read different versions of history of 1975 to 1981,but this non-fiction by Anthony Mascarenhas seems much more legit. Even though the period was dark but Nov'75 has always been my favorite area in history of Bangladesh. Coup, re-coup; that was certainly a period of turmoil. I may sound a little...
Offline (2000)

Every single time I read a Burke story I get jolted by the ending. By now I sort of know to expect it but it still sneaks up on me, that “whoooa, he did it again” feeling. This is pretty short but builds momentum nicely as you get sucked into the meat of the story; an innocent chat between two te...
Run Like Hell (2000)
3.17 of 5 Votes: 2
I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone, the character is stupid and reckless, putting not just herself but her friends and family in danger for the sake of not spending some of her summertime grounded. The only reason I even give it 2* is because I quite liked the writing style and the first ha...
Shiverton Hall (2013)
3.77 of 5 Votes: 5
I’m not a fan of adult horror or even YA horror – I just don’t have the stomach for the gore and nastiness. But this is pitched at just the right level for kids and people like me – gothic chills and supernatural creepiness but without anything truly disturbing and a happy ending (at least for t...
Brains For Lunch: A Zombie Novel in Haiku?! (2010)
3.03 of 5 Votes: 1
I did not really like this book for a couple reasons. There wasnt really much of a plot and it was boring. Thats why i would only give this book two stars. But not one star because I can see how it would be hard to write a book with just haikus. What I did like about this book though, was its cre...
Dirty DNA (2000)

WOW! Just when you think this story of family drama couldn't possibly get better, BlaQue turns up the intensity. Murder, deception, and money are at the center of YaYa and her father's lives...add in a brother she never knew of, a mother addicted to crack cocaine who hates her, and a best frien...
Werewolf Haiku (2010)
3.35 of 5 Votes: 4
Who would think to write a book entirely in haiku in the first place? And then to make the main character a werewolf who was bitten by a rabid dog? This small book had me both marveling at the haiku, which were well written and felt like poetry, and laughing at the many of the poems. Here are ...
The Girls with Games of Blood (2010)
3.66 of 5 Votes: 1
While I liked the story better than that in Blood Groove, I still don't like most of the characters. I hate the main character, Baron Zginski. The one character I had grown to sort of like was horribly killed. I hated the end. I still say it's a well-written book for what it is, but it is defini...
