MAGICIANS IMPOSSIBLE by Brad Abraham- Review

MAGICIANS IMPOSSIBLE by Brad Abraham- Review
Posted September 12, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 22 Comments

The nitty-gritty: Fast and furious, violent and action-packed, this story will make you wish you had magical powers! Brad Abraham’s debut is being billed as “Harry Potter meets James Bond” and after reading Magicians Impossible I have to say that’s a pretty good description. I had several Harry Potter flashback moments while reading this, and […]

TRUTHERS by Geoffrey Girard – Review
Posted July 20, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 16 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A fun, fast-paced thriller about the conspiracy theories behind 9/11, this contemporary YA will give teens (and adults!) plenty to think about. I don’t usually read YA thrillers, but when Geoffrey Girard asks you to read his book, you do! I have to admit I don’t know much about conspiracy theories—although my sixteen […]

GEEK ACTUALLY (Episodes 1-4) – Review
Posted June 22, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 8 Comments

Big thanks to Wunderkind PR and Serial Box for the chance to review this hysterically funny and geeky series! When I was first pitched Geek Actually, the latest from the innovative folks at Serial Box, I was a little hesitant. After all, the covers scream “Contemporary chick lit!” which is definitely not my thing. But […]

MARS GIRLS by Mary Turzillo – Review

MARS GIRLS by Mary Turzillo – Review
Posted June 1, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 17 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A high-octane adventure tale in space, populated by some of the craziest characters you’ll ever meet. Well, this is probably the strangest, wackiest story I’ve ever read, and that’s saying something. Being a lover of speculative fiction, “strange” is the norm and I’ve definitely read my share.  Mary Turzillo takes strange to a whole […]

The nitty-gritty: A fascinating taste of alternate history involving hippos, full of grit, danger, romance and plenty of humor. And teeth, plenty of teeth. Readers have been buzzing about this novella for months, and I was so excited to finally sit down and read it. What fun this was! Sarah Gailey has created something unique: […]

THE DISPATCHER by John Scalzi – Review
Posted May 4, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 13 Comments

The nitty-gritty: An awesome sci-fi concept with limitless possibilities, with plenty of action and emotion to make this a novella you won’t want to miss. “I know what side of the street I like better. But you don’t always get to choose the side of the street you walk on.” ~ Tony Valdez This may […]

THE COLLAPSING EMPIRE by John Scalzi – Review

THE COLLAPSING EMPIRE by John Scalzi – Review
Posted March 21, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 20 Comments

The nitty-gritty: Biting humor and politics collide in Scalzi’s latest, a fast-paced trip through space. Within two days, Kiva was within five million marks of going into the black for the trip. “I’m a fucking financial genius,” she said, to Captain Blinnikka, back on the Yes, Sir. “Or you’re war profiteering,” Blinnikka said. “I’m not […]

STAR’S END by Cassandra Rose Clarke – Review

STAR’S END by Cassandra Rose Clarke – Review
Posted March 13, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 18 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A thought-provoking family saga set far in the future, with corporate intrigue, secrets and plenty of finely drawn relationships between children and their parents. Star’s End was not the Cassandra Rose Clarke book I was expecting. But then again, I didn’t really have any expectations when I started, other than I knew that […]
