Book Revisit: Plague of the Dead by Z. A. Recht

Book Revisit: Plague of the Dead by Z. A. Recht

I first read Z. A. Recht’s Plague of the Dead years ago (~5 years ago?), and was hooked. However, back then I was trying to get books mostly through the library as I was subbing, and didn’t consistently have extra cash to spend on books. For some reason I was determined to download the ebook instead of […]

“Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic.” Every Exquisite Thing was a different kind of read for me, as I usually don’t read contemporary novels. What drove me to picking it, was that it’s written by Matthew Quick, who wrote Silver Linings Playbook. I’ve been wanting to read that book for ages now, and love […]

Book Review: Enclave (Razorland) by Ann Aguirre

“In the enclave, the strong and the physically perfect survived, but if you were strong, you protected the weak until they had an opportunity to grow into their own power.” At least that’s how things were supposed to be. Sadly, Hunters Deuce and Fade discover that the place they’ve come to call home isn’t what […]

Book Review: Olmec Obituary (Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth #1) by L. J. M. Owen
