Advanced Review: The Absinthe Earl by Sharon Lynn Fisher

Mini Review: Reads exactly like what the cover and blurb allude to. I enjoyed it.

Advanced Review: A Little Bit Psycho by J.L. Strange

Mini Review: Not much of a horror reader, but I really liked this body-switch body horror scifi story.

Advanced Review: Starship Alchemon by Christopher Hinz

Mini Review: I loved this so much, it reminded me of some of my favourite scifi stories. We’re in space, we’re in danger, and we can’t fight it. Perfect story.

Series: The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells

Mini Review: I want to reread this beautiful series, but I must wait for the novel. A construct combat SecUnit that has dubbed itself Murderbot that would rather just do nothing and watch entertainment all day than actually kill people. Ahhh perfect. Need more like this.

Series: Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon by Yasmine Galenorn: Crimson Veil, Priestess Dreaming, Panther Prowling, Darkness Raging, Moon Shimmers

Mini Review: 3 sisters with very different powers fighting evil. It’s alright. Nearly finished reviewing this series thankfully.

Series: Realm Walker by Kathleen Collins: Realm Walker, Death’s Daughter, Blood Slave, Prophecy’s Child

Mini Review:

Series: Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter by Laurell K. Hamilton: The Laughing Corpse, Circus of the Damned, The Lunatic Cafe, Bloody Bones

Mini Review: The start of this series is such a good blend of horror and urban fantasy, it is easy to see why people like these books. Anita, a gun, and a lot of monsters.

Series: Tales of the Otori by Lian Hearn: Across the Nightingale Floor, Grass For His Pillow, Brilliance of the Moon, The Harsh Cry of the Heron

Mini Review: A slow but powerful fantasy set in feudal Japan.

Series: Terra Ignota by Ada Palmer: Too Like the Lightning, Seven Surrenders, The Will to Battle

Mini Review: Holy shit what the hell did I just read? I hated it and then I loved it. Absolutely bonkers.
