Book Review: Hollow Kindgom

Hollow Kingdom
By Kira Jane Buxton

My Edition:
Hardcover, 308 pages
2019, Grand Central Publishing
ISBN: 9781538745823

S.T. (that’s short for Shit Turd) is a domesticated crow and he finds himself out on a crazy adventure in the wide world when his best friend, and owner, Big Jim, comes down sick and needs some help. S.T. considers himself a human and feels disconnected from the animal kingdom at large, so his only partner on this adventure is Big Jim’s big, dumb dog, Dennis. The two set out to find a cure and S.T. learns he can rely on Dennis and his own wild instincts. But can they fix what’s wrong with Big Jim and the other humans?

This book has re-defined the post-apocalyptic/zombie genre for me and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

Book Review: Blood Sugar

Blood Sugar
By Daniel Kraus

My Edition:
ARC Paperback, 222 pages
2019, Titan Books
ISBN: 9781789091939 (trade paperback)

From the back of the book: In a ruined house at the end of Yellow Street, an angry outcast hatches a scheme to take revenge for all the wrongs he has suffered. With the help of three alienated kids, he plans to hide razor blades, poison, and broken glass in Halloween candy, maiming or killing dozens of innocent children. But as the clock ticks closer to sundown, will one of his helpers – an innocent himself, in his own streetwise way – carry out or defeat the plan?

I can’t blurb this book because I wasn’t prepared for how much it would fuck me up and I don’t know how to summarize it without going into way too much detail.

Mini(bot) Rants: Black Leopard, Red Wolf

I want to try out something a little more informal today. This rant may or may not turn out to be so mini; we’ll see. Rather than taking a deep-dive into why I despised a book (example: my R.L. Stine reviews), I’m just going to pop-off and ramble about various things I disliked. I don’t even know if this will make sense, so buckle up!

Mini(bot) Reviews: Strings

You may recall I recently reread The Ables and enjoyed it. Today I’m here to talk about the recently released sequel, Strings. I’m bringing you a mini-review today for two reasons: 1) I hate to talk too much about the plots of sequels/series; and 2) I don’t have a whole heck of a lot to say, unfortunately.

Book Review: Bear Books

The wonderful folks over at Bloomsbury sent me three bear-themed books for young readers since I happen to enjoy kids’ books. I wanted to share my thoughts for any of you who might be interested in grabbing these for young readers you know! I also wanted to showcase the art because all three books are so cute!
