You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine

Kleeman gives us a first-class novel about the body and how it is perceived and food and how we are manipulated into choosing it and eating it, which makes for a first-class debut for Kleeman.


The Moment of Letting Go

The Moment of Letting Go is one of those stories that clear away all of the necessary clutter we accumulate in our lives and break down what is truly important.


Girl Waits with Gun

Girl Waits With Gun is great fun, though the ever-present danger the Kopp sisters face gives the book an edge I hadn’t quite expected.


Did You Ever Have A Family

Maybe his regrets, his choices and mistakes, were all necessary steppingstones to get to his present life as a recovered addict with a successful career who has two books of nonfiction under his belt and, now, this thoughtful novel.


The Ambassador's Wife: A Novel

I loved how the novel switch between past and present, the story flowed seamlessly and progressed with enough momentum to keep things exciting but yet slow enough to savor each piece of the story we got.


Ruin and Rising

The ending just fit so perfectly for the characters and the world itself, so if you are going to read this series or maybe you are struggling with the series over all and are wondering if you should continue…


At the Water's Edge: A Novel

Overall, I wasn’t completely blown away by this book but I felt like I got what I was expecting when it came to Gruen’s writing style and ultimately, I finished the book and was glad that I did…


Decompression

Over all this was a satisfying read that was different from books that I would normally review. I liked it, I didn’t LOVE it but I enjoyed the mystery and thought the author spun an intriguing and different narrative.


The Status of All Things: A Novel

It was an easygoing story that I could have read in one sitting if I had the time.


Broken Homes & Gardens: A Novel

My only gripe with "Broken Homes" was the ending. After reading the very last sentence, I felt disgruntled. It was beautifully written, like the rest of the book, yet it left me wanting more.


What Comes Next and How to Like It: A Memoir

If you are looking for a light beach read, What Comes Next and How to Like It is not that book.


Three Moments of an Explosion: Stories

As a collection of stories it is interesting, engaging, beguiling, irritating and bewitching, sometimes all at once.


The Fifth Season
SFF World : The Fifth Season (August 04, 2015)

The Fifth Season is a powerful, epic novel of discovery, pain, and heartbreak across the landscape of a many-times broken world with characters who are supremely flawed and broken themselves.


Zeroes
SFF World : Zer0es (August 18, 2015)

The novel ends with both closure and a seed for a potential next volume. I’ve come to enjoy the characters even Reagan whose annoyances became less so with the plot’s forward movement, how they interact, and with Chuck’s great storytelling skills, I’m definitely aboard for the more stories featuring any of these characters – even Reagan.


The Human Division

The Human Division is certainly a successful return, and continuation, to one of my favourite SF series. Recommended.


You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost): A Memoir

It’s about embracing what makes you different and having the bravery and courage to share it with the world, and that’s why the digital misfit that is Felicia Day is a talent not to be reckoned with.


The Hive Construct

There is a wonderfully cinematic feel to proceedings, right from the opening chapter of Zala striding out of the arid heat of the Sahara, possibly dooming herself by returning to the city that damned her, calling to mind Franco Nero’s Django emerging from the Badlands dragging a coffin behind him.


Fool's Quest

Those of us who already know about these books will be pleased to discover that it’s still an amazing series and one that is well worth your time.
