Review: Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1), by Jodi Taylor

Review: Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1), by Jodi Taylor

June 10, 2016 Review 1 ★★★★

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.

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.

Review: Borderline (The Arcadia Project #1), by Mishell Baker

Review: Borderline (The Arcadia Project #1), by Mishell Baker

June 2, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

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.

BLOOD LUST is another excellent, bold, action-packed installment of The Sentinels series. I love when we are given the opportunity to see interesting side characters from previous books get their own book. For BLOOD LUST we get Bas, a mysterious assassin who caught my eye earlier in this series.

MUCH OF MADNESS wraps you up in a magical world full of mystery and suspense. I really enjoyed this story although my one issue was that I kept feeling like I was missing some key information that was covered in a previous book which is odd since this is the first book in a series.
