This Is How You Lose the Time War

 Oh my heart.  This. Book.  The best way I can describe this book is gorgeous, flowery writing mixed with a sense of unending doom.  While I can understand some of the negative reviews of this book (you need to enjoy romantic language), I found this to be an engaging, thoughtful, and emotional book about the power of love and the all-encompassing hold it can have on us.  I highly recommend this book.

Dragon Bound

I read this book as part of my Adult Reading Round Table’s paranormal romance meeting.   I wanted to pick something a bit different from the vampire and werewolf books that have been very popular over the past few years….and I came across a whole sub-genre called dragon shifting.  I had no idea what to expect and overall was surprised by this book.

Moonstruck, Vol. 1: Magic to Brew v

Werewolves?  Baristas? Magic? Gay best friend? Young Adult?  I had been wanting to read Moonstruck for a while, ever since I heard about it really, because of all the awesome things I had heard about it and the themes it explored.   While I am glad I finally got to experience, I found that the idea and concept turned out better than the reality.  I thought it was fun and a quick read but ultimately wanted more.

Sleepless

I am always on the lookout for new graphic novels by authors I haven’t read so I was excited to read Sleepless.  I didn’t know much about the story beforehand so it was a nice surprise to find out that I really enjoyed the story and the characters. I can’t wait to read volume two!

The Bird King

I don’t know how to write this review or recommend this book because while I didn’t end up enjoying it as much as I thought I would, it’s beautifully written and I could see the story appealing to fans of magical realism and religious fiction.   But about 30% into this book, I realized that it wasn’t my cup of tea and while I would have usually stopped reading, I received this book as an advanced reader copy and felt I owed it to the author and publisher to give it a shot and write an honest review.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Vol. 1: The Crucible

While this graphic novel is probably best appreciated when read during the Autumn months, especially around Halloween, I finally got around to reading it this week and it was still enjoyable, even when read in the middle of cold and snowy weather.  This had been on my to read list for a while but for some reason it was always passed over for other titles.   I was afraid that I had waited too long to read it and that the hype would cloud my enjoyment of it.  Boy was I wrong.  This was a dark, sad, funny, retelling of the Sabrina story that most of us know and I would highly recommend it.

The Pisces

You would think that the major issue I had with this book would have been the human-merman sex…but….I had SEVERAL MAJOR issues with this horrible book and I cannot believe it has any decent reviews, let alone was described as “hilarious.”  The only reason I finished this was because it was a fairly quick read (I read it over the span of 2 days) and I felt like I had to see this train wreck through.  Be warned, this review will have multiple spoilers as I feel like I cannot adequately convey my displeasure with this book without giving away some plot points.
