The Dirty Parts of the Bible

The Dirty Parts of the Bible

I don’t do book reviews anymore. Oh, I still read, more than ever since I got my Kindle, but now that I’m well into my publishing journey, I just don’t feel comfortable criticising other authors. Even when books are throw-across-the-room annoying (which I don’t actually do–throw the books I mean– cuz I heart my Kindle), I just put them aside and say nothing....

Book Review: The Magician’s Guild

Book Review: The Magician’s Guild

The Magician’s Guild by Trudi Canavan is the first in the Black Magician’s Trilogy, although trilogy is perhaps the wrong word, since after the publication of the three, Canavan published a prequel and then a subsequent standalone novel.

Books: Chemistry In Death

There are primarily two types of books I read: gory crime books and sci-fi/fantasy. I like my crime books full of forensic details and smart cops. The crazier the psychopath murderer, the better. So, yeah, Criminal Minds is my favourite TV show by far. I just finished reading Chemistry In Death by Simon Beckett. It’s about a forensic pathologist who loses his wife and daughter and out of...

Review: Would-Be Witch

Have you ever read a book that made you want to have coffee with the author, just so you could gush like a fan-girl about how wonderful it was? Have you ever read a book that made you want to have coffee with the characters? I read this book over the weekend: Would-be Witch by Kimberly Frost I’m trying to think how to describe the experience. I want to get this right, because I want you to...
