Book Review: The Silent Patient

Alicia is the title of this novel, "the silent patient." She murdered her husband and has not spoken since, not even to defend herself in court. As such, she has been ordered into a psych hospital to undergo treatment. Theo, our protagonist in this tale, just so happens to be a psychotherapist--and one that took on the job at the very hospital that Alicia is in, specifically to treat Alicia. So he can help her to see clearly. The rest of the novel follows these two as Theo tries to help Alicia come to terms with her husband's death--and her part in it--and deals with his own marital problems.

Book Review: Knight in Paper Armor

A beautifully written YA book about a young boy, ostracized from everyone else and who has powers unimaginable, and who is saved by the confident, brave young girl he meets at school.

Natalia Gonzalez is a Guatemalan immigrant working hard to keep her family whole and well, and her life is turned upside down when she meets the strange new boy. Will their friendship and developing relationship survive what's coming?

Guest Post: Kameo Monson, Author of Finding Me

Sit awhile as I tell you a tale of a book series titled Finding Me. No witches or warlocks, no dragons, elves, or faeries, this series still hold magic within its pages. The magic comes from a mother with weaknesses and strengths and a love for her son that can’t die. Imperfect at best, she learns how to handle life when the unexpected comes. Her son’s autism diagnosis.

Book Review: The Wolf’s Tooth

So far, the book seems to like it'll be a pretty easy and quick read. The writing style is reminiscent of Tolkien's The Hobbit with the writer taking a direct role in explaining to the reader what is going on, and making corrections as necessary. It also has that faint fairytale-esque feel to it. The prologue and first chapter are both relatively short, so I haven't seen much of the plot or character(s) just yet and can't really comment on them, but I am excited to continue this journey and see what happens!

Book Review: Thief, Acolyte, Consort

Catt Zago just moved into the city of Great Bakak, and had the astonishing experience of attending the Regicide festival. As the title suggests, she finds employment under Lemmy, a priest of many gods, and thus becomes an acolyte. She also befriends the new King and beds her, becoming the King's Consort. Throughout all of this, Catt is trying to figure out a way to save her love from the next year's Regicide... But time is running out, faster than she thought.
