Triton Review


Normally my mythical go to creatures are not mermaids because I felt there wasn’t much story there. However after reading Of Triton by Anna Banks I was pleasantly surprised that I liked the story. Books about mermaids aside from the star-crossed lovers angle, what eles was there? Yes there is that element in Of Triton […]

Being Henry David Review

being henry david

Being Henry David is a literary feast I loved the narration of Hank’s inner thoughts they’re on the same level as R’s in Warm Bodies. Intelligent and descriptive. Hank’s odyssey to discover his true identity is precarious path that takes him fro the streets of  New York city to the town of Concord, Massachusetts. Hoping […]

Poison Review


After discovering Poison upon writer Bridget Zinn’s death I was sadden by her untimely passing, but was intrigued by the story of the young poisoner. I must say I feel odd reviewing Poison though because I was afraid I wouldn’t like the book. And if I did would my review be taken as sentiment for […]

Serpent’s Kiss Review

serpent's kiss

I first became entranced with the Beauchamp witches after Witches of East End though witches aren’t my preferred fictional entity. I did like Freya for her in your face ways and Ingrid who was the total opposite, and reminded me a little of myself. Joanna the mother read like the kind of mother most girls […]

Fury’s Kiss Review


Fury’s Kiss is the third book in the Dorina Basarab series. I’m a big fan of urban fantasy because they have a healthy pace, usually. And lots of action and running for your life scenarios. Where to begin there was so much to love, like, knit your brows at. Should I talk about the romance between […]

Level 2 Review

Three levels. Two loves. One choice.  And the place that exists between our world (Level 1) and what comes after life (Level 2).  This is the concept behind Debut novelist Lenore Appelhans new series the Memory Chronicles. Level 2 is the first book it was….. promising?  Level 2 was really good. I know why I […]

vN Review

vN Madeline Ashby

Amy Peterson is a von Neumann machine, a self-replicating humanoid robot. For the past five years, she has grown slowly as part of a mixed organic / synthetic family. Huh how is that going to work? That sounded like an interesting premise and it got my attention to read vN. But as I began to […]

Sweet Shadows Review

sweet shadows

Sweet shadows is the second book in the  Medusa Girls series. My first impression I liked this book better than the first (I didn’t write a review for Sweet Venom if you’re curious). If you are a regular visitor to Sony the Book Lover, then you know I’m a professed cover junkie. And  nine times […]

Flawless Review


I’ve been dying to read Flawless but I could never quite get to it. There was always another book in front of it in my ever growing TBR list. So when I spotted Flawless on the shelf at the library. I squealed and jumped at the chance to read it, and scooped it up right […]

The Waters and the Wild Review

the waters and the wild

The Waters and the wild is a small story 113 pages in full it reminded me of another book I read some time ago. The Replacement it had the same feel, that slow underlining morbid vibe. Changelings are somber beings every book I’ve read they constantly question who and what they are and its no […]
