Review: Drive Me Crazy by Tracy Wolff

The Faerie Queen’s review Drive Me Crazy started out a bit strange for me, but it quickly picked up after a few chapters. Before I get started, a few trigger warnings to mention: there is past child abuse, physical fighting and cheating in this one. At first, the interactions between Quinn and Elise felt awkward and forced, with the words claiming an intimacy and sizzle that didn’t come off the page. The author jumped right in and said that there should be something there, but we hadn’t had enough time to first get to know the characters. BUT THEN. It quickly escalated. The whole book takes place over several days, really, so it did seem a bit like insta-love, though this was tempered by the knowledge that, even though the two hadn’t seen each other for a decade, back in their teens, they had years of messing with each other – and then messing […]

Review: Demon Hunting in Dixie by Lexi George

The Skeptic’s review DNF @ 10% Wow what the eff happened there. Not only was there some TRIGGER WARNING rape-esque scenes in the first 10%, but it moved SO quickly. I honestly had no idea what was happening or supposed to be happening because I was so caught off guard by how awkward this whole situation was. Then there were quotes like this: “In the bright light of her living room he was devastating, a god, a wet dream on steriods.” Keep in mind she has known him for 0.000001 second by this point of the story because at that point, we are still in chapter one. I couldn’t take any of this one seriously and I could not continue past the rape-esque scene so I am DNFing it. I would recommend this book to… Absolutely no one Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to […]
