Timeless by Gail Carriger

Timeless by Gail Carriger

5 Nuts. *flails, sobbing* It’s over! I can’t believe it’s over. My god, what a ride. I won’t even hesitate to say that this is one of the best series I have ever read. Really and truly. The Parasol Protectorate is just plain FUN, there’s nothing else I could call it. I have thoroughly enjoyed […]

Heartless by Gail Carriger

Heartless by Gail Carriger

5 Nuts Lawd, Miss Carriger is the queen of the perfect urban steampunk fantasy romp. I have never read a more consistently good author in all of the time I’ve been reviewing books. Not once have I been disappointed in one of the Parasolverse books, and the Parasol Protectorate in particular are always top notch […]

Poison and Protect by Gail C..

Poison and Protect by Gail Carriger

4 Nuts Ooooh giiiiirrrrl , get you some Scottish soldier. I’m going to only say this once: POISON AND PROTECT is NOT a YA novel. Yes it is about Presha from FINISHING SCHOOL. Yes the cover sort of looks like those. NO it is not for teens (unless they are at a point where they […]

Blameless by Gail Carriger

Blameless by Gail Carriger

4.5 Nuts LORD MACCON, YOU FRUSTRATING BERK OF A MAN, YOU APOLOGIZE TO YOUR WIFE THIS INSTANT! That’s pretty much the main thought that sat in my brain as I listened to the insufferable werewolf alpha pine away after his own idiocy caused the problem. Blasted men and their blasted pride. BLAMELESS “splits the party” […]

Changeless by Gail Carriger

Changeless by Gail Carriger

5 Nuts *sniffs* Is someone slicing onions in here? No of course I’m not crying! That’s preposterous! God this book ends with some feels. But its not just the ending that made me give this book 5 nuts. No, it’s the mystery of it, along with the addition of one of my favorite FINISHING SCHOOL […]

Soulless by Gail Carriger

Soulless by Gail Carriger

4 Nuts And here is the point I became ride or die for Miss Carriger. I love THE FINISHING SCHOOL series and Moira Quirk is a fabulous narrator, but Emily Gray’s performances for PARASOL PROTECTORATE are really spectacular. But it’s not just narrator that makes SOULLESS so good. Gail Carriger absolutely knows what she is […]

The Curious Case of the Were..

The Curious Case of the Werewolf That Wasn’t (The Mummy That Was, and the Cat in a Jar) by Gail Carriger- Audio

4 Nuts This rating is based purely on the story, not on the audio performance I had the misfortune of listening to. A note of interest, skip the Carriger Quartet audio set, the voice acting is god awful and the reading much too fast. But back to the matter at hand, the story itself. The […]

Ruin of Stars by Linsey Mill..

Ruin of Stars by Linsey Miller

4.5 Nuts Awwwww hell yeah! Now THAT is what I’m talking about. If you want a book that discusses identity, culture, and has an awesomely shameless genderfluid character? This one is for you. Sal doesn’t give a fuck if you think they’re wrong, Sal is how they are! Let’s give a hand for Sal and […]

Manners and Mutiny by Gail C..

Manners and Mutiny by Gail Carriger

YAAASSS 5 Nuts! Okay, no question, book 4 beats out all the rest for best book in the series! Be it subtle references to other books in the “-verse” (what’s up Prof Lyle, I see you hanging out with our campy vamp friend!) or events we’ve wanted to see all series long, M&M has it […]

Review: An Enchantment of Ra..

First, a note: if you know me at all, you know that putting the word “Ravens” on anything is going to get my attention. Ravens are beautiful, intelligent, and they remind me of Edgar Allan Poe. I’m going to the Pickerington Public Library Young Adult Book Festival in October, and I realized that I hadn’t […]
