REVIEW: Yellow Wife

“Mama often said, no kind deed from a white person went without a return.” —————————— Indignity.  That’s the word that kept running through my mind while reading this book.

REVIEW: The Falling Woman

“He’s trying to explain why the sky is inside him. If they mined down into his soul, they would find wings.  The sky runs through him, into places of himself he still hasn’t mapped.

REVIEW: The Dark Tide

“Eva had reached her limit for human interaction.  She could feel the climbing tension in her muscles, the sharp stab of irritation every time another person spoke, the rising desire to pluck one of her hairpins out of her braids and shove it through someone’s throat.” ——————— Ok, I think Jasinska captured my personality inContinue reading “REVIEW: The Dark Tide”

🚀 REVIEW: How to Mars 🚀

“… but it turns out that after a while even scientists can get bored of science.” ———————– No, we can’t, right? I mean nerdy space stuff is my jam.

REVIEW: A Theater for Dreamers

“The writers pull their chairs closer when they hear that he’s a published poet.
