Review: Everything You Dream is Real by Lisa de Nikolits

Review: Everything You Dream is Real by Lisa de Nikolits My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’ll be the first to admit that I tend to lean toward weird and/or unconventional things. I remember, when I was in college in a creative writing class, my professor suggested to me one day that my own prose […]

Review: Pulse: Book One by B.A. Bellec

Pulse: Book One by B.A. Bellec My rating: 2 of 5 stars Well, this wasn’t what I expected… and I wish that was a good thing, but unfortunately, I’m just too bothered by what I deem to be problems with the story. Now, look, I didn’t arrive at this conclusion after just finishing the story. […]

Review: Jisedai by Daniel P. Riley

Jisedai by Daniel P. Riley My rating: 5 of 5 stars I expect a lot from the books I read. I have become the type of reader who reads critically as well as for enjoyment and reading critically has led me to often find issues with whatever I consume. Even if I enjoy a story, […]
