Review: The Other Side of Gravity

Science-fiction is a huge weakness of mine, especially if the stories are on faraway planets with unique civilizations, crazy gadgets, and creative types of world building. I know that you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover, but with The Other Side of Gravity by Shelly Crane it is really difficult not to.…

Review: Monsterland

Monsterland by Michael Phillip Cash My rating: 2 of 5 stars Monsterland is a young-adult horror novel that revolves around a theme-park where creatures like vampires, zombies, and werewolves are held in captivity for the amusement (and fear) of spectators.

Review: Tempest Rising

Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs My rating: 3 of 5 stars When I picked this book up, I was in the mood for a tale on mermaids. I wanted to read something fantastical and magical. This book wasn’t as magical or crazy laced with fantasy that I had hoped, but it was still a surprisingly…
