Review: Stranger Things: Darkness on the Edge of Town by Adam Christopher

Stranger Things: Darkness on the Edge of Town is the second novel written as a tie in to the Stranger Things Netflix series. Like the first novel (Suspicious Minds) Darkness on the Edge of Town is a prequel. Unlike the first novel, it doesn’t occur in Hawkins. Well, most of it doesn’t at least. Continue reading

Review: Longer by Michael Blumlein

Longer is one of those science fiction novels that’ll make you think. More than that, it’ll make you feel. I’m not ashamed to admit that Longer made me cry like a baby at times. It cut through me and forced me to view the tale on an emotional level. Continue reading

Review: Alice Payne Arrives by Kate Heartfield

Alice Payne Arrives is a new take on time. Yes, I know, time travel has been done a million times, and will likely be done a million more times. But that won’t stop me from trying new books and series. In this particular case – I’m glad that I gave it a chance. Continue reading

Review: The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a brilliant and sometimes heartbreaking read. It probably had so much more impact due to the fact that it’s based on a true story, well, sort of. It’s inspired by real people, and a real career (the book women – librarians who would deliver books to locations too far and small for their own library). Continue reading

Starship Repo is the newest novel from the mind of Patrick S. Tomlinson. And honestly, I couldn’t be happier about picking this novel up. I’ve been really craving something like this lately, but I hadn’t been able to put it into words until now. I wanted a space opera with a healthy sense of comedic relief and character building. I got all of that here. Continue reading
