Again, I loved the first two novellas, and reviewed them when I read them. I love the entire idea of a guy solving mysteries by middle managing his multiple personalities. His awareness of his hallucinations is fascinating. I just really enjoy his ...more

Super cute, and a vey quick read. A girl appoints herself an assistant to a super villain, but things are not all that they seem. Their developing friendship is the sweetest thing to read and see. I enjoyed it immensely.

I'm a sucker for super powers, so I knew I was going to like this one. And for the most part, I did. Criminalizing super powers is a dystopia I could, unfortunately, believe all too well, and it was a powerful uncovering of those secrets. I loved the ...more

I had never heard of this fairy tale before! It was cute, and strange, in the way of fairy tales. The princess is cursed with a lack of gravity, and not only floats around if not tethered to something/someone, but also is completely unconcerned about ...more

Wow. The ending to this trilogy was pretty epic. It was a fantastic way to tie up all the strings, and I couldn't put it down. Highly recommended. The only thing is that now I'm perfectly happy where it ended up, and I don't really want to read the ...more

Well, while interesting in general, this one was more of a struggle. It suffered from the middle book slump with an excessive amount of angst. Plus, the sibling thing was annoyingly uncomfortable. Overall, I enjoyed it anyway.
