[REVIEW] Queenie, by Candice Carty-Williams

(Buy it from Bookshop here.) I want to fight Queenie. Okay, maybe not fight. Not physically, anyway. I just want to take her out for coffee and a very stern junior auntie-in-training chat about her life and her choices, ending with one question–“Girl, why don’t you love yourself at all?” She’s twenty-five, works at aContinue reading “[REVIEW] Queenie, by Candice Carty-Williams”

[Review] Signs of Attraction, by Laura Brown

[REVIEW] Jingle Balls, by Vanessa Waltz

(Find it HERE.) I can’t believe I’m actually posting this… I’m not even going to pretend I can keep a face straight enough to actually review this. Just know that it’s exactly what the cover and title promise. This is the kind of good and terrible fun read no one ever admits to in publicContinue reading “[REVIEW] Jingle Balls, by Vanessa Waltz”

[REVIEW] The A.I. Who Loved Me, Alyssa Cole

(Buy it HERE). I have to admit–I wasn’t sure what to think about this romance novella at first. The premise seemed like it could easily go very wrong. Trinity, a Black data analyst is home on admistrative leave recovering from PTSD from a mysterious work accident when she falls for Li Wei, a Chinese…robot? Correction–he’sContinue reading “[REVIEW] The A.I. Who Loved Me, Alyssa Cole”
