My review: To Pluck a Crow, The Hands Behind Shakespeare’s Pen is so pluckin’ intriguing!

I'm a massive Shakespeare nerd, or at least I used to be as a teenager, always with my trusty tome of his complete works close by. (I still have it, too!) Over the years, I had heard rumours questioning the authorship of those works, so I was really intrigued to read about Sue Taylor-Davidson's take …

My review: In the Shadow of the Spire is a much-needed Star Wars story

I've said it before and I'll say it again: author February Grace is probably one of the kindest people ever to be found on Twitter. She's really a delight, so consider following her! Aside from being a lovely human, she's also a brilliant writer with over 30K followers on Wattpad alone. This month, I found …

My review: Run J Run is a “Read Now!” Read

After I finished this book, I just sat still, gobsmacked. It was incredible. And though I absolutely loved Su Sokol’s, Cycling to Asylum, Run J Run will stay with me a very long time. What I find extremely important about this work is that it starts with a content warning: The following material contains discussions …

My review: Faux Ho Ho restored my faith in holiday romance stories!

Faux Ho Ho is available now from Book Strokes Books! I can’t even tell you how much I’ve grown to despise holiday stories, and here’s the kicker: I’m a sappy romantic human! I’ve just found so many of them feel snoozy and overdone. Most times, I can’t get beyond a few pages. Then I read …

My review: Love and Lemonade, by Jamieson Wolf

This is the third book in Jamieson Wolf’s Lemonade series, and I love these characters so much. It’s like catching up with old friends. I’m a big fan of the episodic nature of each chapter, and this series reminds me a bit of Tales of the City, with respect to the chosen family theme. I …

Life in My Microcosm: Cait G’s Top Ten Books of 2017!

Several of my author peeps post about their favourite books of the year and I think it’s a great idea. We’re not only writers, we’re also readers! This year I dove into books from authors I’ve met or had contact with on social media (except maybe Mary Shelley, but we so would have been tweeps). …

Soul’s Blood: A Space Opera with a Triad of Awesomeness

I only met Stephen Graham King online, when he asked to write for the Spoonie Authors Network. It took about five minutes for me to like him, and I'm probably exaggerating by four minutes. I'd heard author ’Nathan Bourgoine rave about Stephen's space operas, so I decided to read Soul's Blood, the first of his Maverick Heart Cycle …
