While I was reading Just One Damned Thing After Another, I couldn’t stop thinking of another writer: Terry Pratchett. That has to be one of the highest praise I can give a book, and that was when I was only a few chapters in. It pressed all the right geeky buttons, while still managing to keep up the suspense and danger inherent in travelling back in time to observe critical moments in history.
So I was coming off a long string of amazing Sci-Fi books that I’d been looking forward to for a long time, and I ran into the problem that I’m guessing almost all readers run into every once in awhile… After reading so many great books in a row I didn’t know what to read next. I spent a couple days not reading anything at all, because I just didn’t know what to pick up to follow so many awesome reads. However, I couldn’t last long without reading something so I decided to go back and reread an old classic, STORM FRONT.
AMBER FIRE, by Lisa Renee Jones, has left me with some really troubling questions, some of which I will try to answer for you.
Wouldn’t a tribe of were-Jaguars do better settling in a place where wild jaguars actually lived, so that seeing a pride of them wouldn’t be too weird?
Yeah that would be more subtle.

LAST CALL AT THE NIGHTSHADE LOUNGE is a quirky urban fantasy story where getting drunk with the correctly made cocktail gives you superpowers to beat up monsters. The concept that bartenders are a part of a secret monster killing society due to their ability to get superpowers from alcohol is a pretty cool one.
RUINED was a fun young adult book, that while enjoyable, fell a little flat for me. With some interesting aspects, and the beginnings of a sweet romance, I think that RUINED could have been a better read for me with some more details and fleshed out characters.

BORDERLINE, by Mishell Baker, is a strange book, and I was never quite sure what it was trying to be; serious exploration of mental health disorders in a fantasy setting, a love letter to Hollywood, a dark fantasy world occasionally peppered with clever observation? The main character was super engaging (if not always particularly likeable), but the urban fantasy part left me wanting more.
