ALL SYSTEMS RED is a fun read about a tv watching, awkward, security robot. When you call yourself Murderbot, it’s not surprising that you find it difficult to connect with humans.

The promise of time travel shenanigans drew me to WEAVE A CIRCLE ROUND. When done right, time travel can be immensely fun and mind-bending. I was intrigued and excited to find out how Freddy had arrived thousands of years in the past and what the consequences would be.
In RULE OF LUCK, there’s tarot readings, love, and questionable science. Professional tarot card reader Felicia Sevigny is recruited by the Russian mob. She’s going to help them take down the evil government, in return she’ll be given more control over her destiny.
DEJA NEW follows DEJA WHO with the same amount of humor, sarcasm, and interesting storytelling. Between the characters’ parenthetical inner monologues, flashbacks, and footnotes, DEJA NEW is a creatively told romance with a heavy dose of mystery.
I’ve been interested in how this series ends since the first volume of DEMON, but the fourth and final volume didn’t really live up to the potential I felt it had. Gory and violent, the story seems to devolve into a question of what can kill the most people the fastest.
Gertrude is back and taking names! After yet another failed attempt to escape Fairyland, Gert is more pissed than ever in I HATE FAIRYLAND VOLUME 3: GOOD GIRL. She’s the perfect anti-hero, with glimmers of regret as she hacks and slashes her way through people who should clearly know better than to get between her and her goal.
If you enjoy your fairy tales sweet and simple, I HATE FAIRYLAND is not for you. If on the other hand you like them messed up and full of violence committed by the most adorable 40 year old ever, you’re in for a vanilla and violence flavoured treat!
It’s rare to find a book aimed at children, with a distinct voice to the narrator, that is also enjoyable as an adult. SORCERY FOR BEGINNERS is a surprisingly mature story that deals with bullying, social injustice, betrayal and yes, sorcery.
SPARKED starts with a smolder rather than a true burn, carefully introducing the characters and their home life. Despite the sluggish start, I was thoroughly hooked once more details of Ivy’s disappearance were revealed, along with the mysterious love interest.
