In some ways, this particular title didn’t seem appropriate for a book review. A False Report is the true story of a serial rapist, how he was brought to justice, and the victim that nobody believed. But honestly, this book needs as much publicity…

Irrelevant Reviews: The Cat Who Series

When I was growing up, I’d often spend the night at my grandmother’s house on the weekends. There were plenty of benefits to this: strawberry ice cream was served nightly at 7pm, there was a cherry tree in the back yard, the guest room…

Irrelevant Reviews – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

One of the many failed reading challenges I optimistically undertook stipulated I read a book with a protagonist that shared my name. That’s when I found out there weren’t many books about people named Holly. Maybe I should write one? How frowned upon is…

Wellies, Whovians, and Worbla: Your Guide to Sci-Fi Weekender 2018

tips for living book review

I get a monthly email from GoodReads with a breakdown of new releases by genre. Initially, I thought this would be a good way to find new books to review before they get released. I would stay ahead of the curve, somewhat. Now I…
