This is by far the best book of 2016. Yes, it's July and I'm calling it.

I know some people have complaints that this book wasn't very "Lovecraftian". Those people can pound sand. I've read Lovecraft H. P., like every good horror fan. I think he's ov

Dobry by Monica Shannon
"Though I have no idea of Shannon's qualifications to write of Bulgarian peasant life, I do remember enjoying this beautifully written story when I read it for the Newbery club:

OK, so I read this and the follow up, although I can't say why I finished this one or why I bothered with the second. I did not, however, read the third book. (I cheated and made my friend, Casey, give me a plot synopsis)

I didn't read the third book

As always, I review the entire series here. Yea, yea, hate it all you want, it's how I roll. And DUH, here there be spoilers.

As a series, I really loved it. As a first book, well, nope. Not so much. I really, truly disliked about the first 30% of t

Wow, is this book some serious Gen X masturbatory theater. If you can deal with the serious 80s nostalgia porn you'll probably love this. And you'll love it because it's fun and because its nostalgic. I mean, you have to be a massive gamer/pop cult ...more
