Mini Reviews: Ragged Alice, The Tea Master and the Detective, and The Prince and the Dressmaker

Today I’m bringing you three flash reviews for books that are not even remotely related. Why are they in this post together? Because they were all incredibly quick and short reads -- one is a graphic novel and the other two are novellas. Take a look below at my thoughts on Ragged Alice by Gareth L. Powell, The Tea Master and the Detective by Aliette de Bodard, and The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jenn Wang.

Reading Wrap-Up: March 2019

March was such a busy month -- I feel like it completely flew by! I had so many life changes in March, including preparation for moving to a new job and studying (and passing!) by driving theory test. I did, however, still manage to get some reading done, although I didn’t read as many books as I had wanted.

Book Review: These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch

I had been hearing a lot of buzz around this book and was so excited to read it.  I love a fun pirate book and These Rebel Waves sounded like it was exactly what I wanted.  Then, I began to hear mixed reviews as proofs were released into the world.  I was given a couple of warnings about this book and I am so glad I had them.  My expectations were well-managed and I ended up really enjoying These Rebel Waves, but I think I would have been incredibly displeased if I hadn’t had those warnings, which I am going to pass on to you.

Flash Reviews: Nonfiction Science

It’s time for another set of flash reviews!  Today, I’m focusing on nonfiction science, specifically books about space.  Now you may know that I’m completely obsessed with space. If I had the right kind of brain, I would have been an astronomer.  However, I’m more of a reader than a scientist, so instead of studying the stars I read science fiction and books by authors like Carl Sagan and Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

Flash Reviews: Science Fiction Classics

So I have been reading a lot lately.  Seriously, a lot.  And while I’ve been trying to dedicate myself to writing a review for every single book I read, that’s just not really possible.  Sometimes, regardless of my feelings for a book, I just can’t quite come up with a full-length review! This is neither a good thing nor a bad thing -- it just means I can sum up my feelings quickly.
