Review: Laughter at the Academy by Seanan McGuire

Laughter at the Academy is Seanan McGuire’s first true collection of short stories, by her own words. If you’ve read any of Seanan McGuire’s works, then you probably already have a good idea of what will be in store for you here. So I don’t need to explain all of the reasons you should be reading this. If you haven’t read Seanan McGuire, this is an excellent sampling of her works, and thus worth checking out.

Review: The Future of Another Timeline by Annalee Newitz

The Future of Another Timeline is the newest novel from the mind of Annalee Newitz. It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most feminist piece of fiction I’ve read this year. It mashes time travel, punk music, women’s rights, and so much more into one compact novel. Continue reading

Review: Nightflyers by George R.R. Martin

Nightflyers is a novella written by George R.R. Martin back in 1985. It’s recently been getting a lot more attention though, because of the Syfy TV series that was made. Out of curiosity, I watched the whole first season (which now sounds like it’ll be the only season) and then read the novella. Continue reading

Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Skyward is the first novel in a new series by Brandon Sanderson. It’s a young adult science fiction novel, so it’s quite a bit different from everything else he’s done. Still, the novel sold like crazy back when it came out in the fall, and for good reason. Continue reading

Review: Into the Drowning Deep (Rolling in the Deep #1) by Mira Grant

Into the Drowning Deep is the second book in the Rolling in the Deep series by Mira Grant. I know sometimes you can skip the novella that comes before a novel, but trust me: don’t do that here. If you haven’t read Rolling in the Deep, go read that before you start Into the Drowning Deep. It’ll have so much more impact if you do. Continue reading

Review: Heartwood Box by Ann Aguirre

Heartwood Box is the newest novel by Ann Aguirre, and it is an amazing blend of different genres. It’s young adult, and has romance, supernatural, and science fiction elements as well. It’s a time travel tale, but also a tale of a teenage girl trying to do what is right. And it’s so amazingly dark and brilliant. Continue reading

Review: Mort Vivant (Surviving the Evacuation #14) by Frank Tayell

Mort Vivant is the fourteenth book in the Surviving the Evacuation series by Frank Tayell. It’s hard to believe that it has been that many books (actually more, between the spinoff series and the fact that at least two other novels in this series have been released by now). But it’s true. Continue reading

Review: Wanderers by Chuck Wendig

Wanderers is the latest novel by Chuck Wendig, and it’s been getting a lot of attention. Before the novel was even out people were fighting over the rights to adapt the novel into a series. Which is pretty huge (QC Entertainment won the rights, for those that are curious). And honestly, this novel will adapt well to a series, so I’m looking forward to seeing it. Continue reading
