Again, most of these were books I’ve collected on my Kindle over the years so I’m just doing short reviews for them.

Queen of Starlight (Sheerspace, #1)Queen of Starlight by Jessa Slade

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Queen of Starlight by Jessa Slade is the first book of the Sheerspace series. This one was basically an erotic romance that took the time to toss in some spacey type descriptions to make a “story”. Obviously from my rating I wasn’t a huge fan of this one since it seemed more pretending to have a plot than actually anything to follow.

A Murder of No Account (An Eve Duncan Mystery)A Murder of No Account by Julia Underwood

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A Murder of No Account by Julia Underwood is the first book of the Eve Duncan Mystery series. This one is a historical mystery that takes place in London in 1940. A young woman’s body is found and most simply ignore her and write her off but Eve is determined to get justice. Being a novella the thing this really lacked was depth, the author brought the era to life and did an OK job with the mystery but it all could have used more to it.

Meet Me at MidnightMeet Me at Midnight by Elise Noble

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Meet Me at Midnight by Elise Noble is a romance novella. Augusta Fordham has to choose between the solid and predictable doctory, Gregory, and a mysterious stranger that gets her blood boiling. Wasn’t really a fan of this one simply just not caring for the characters or set up, not my cup of tea really.

Revolution 19Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum is the first book of the sci/fi dystopian series by the same name. This series reminded me a bit of a young adult version of Terminator, the set up to the world at least. We jump in joining the characters who have been in hiding for years after robots rose up and attacked the humans. It had a fairly good pace and plot to it that left me rating this one at 3.5 stars.

Cry of My Heart (Montana Skies, #1)Cry of My Heart by Linda Ford

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Cry of My Heart by Linda Ford is the first book of the Christian romance Montana Skies series. In this one Nicole Thomas runs an antique store and Andrew Conners returns to their town to settle his aunt’s affairs. To be honest this one rubbed me the wrong way from the opening moments these two meet up with Nicole constantly giving Andrew a hard time, she hadn’t seen him in years but felt she knew all about him. So yes, not for me.

Hazards of Time TravelHazards of Time Travel by Joyce Carol Oates

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Hazards of Time Travel by Joyce Carol Oates is a scifi/dystopian novel that deals in time travel. This one started off reminding me a bit of Divergent with the main character getting in trouble for not being like everyone else and questioning things. She ends up getting sent back in time as punishment. Well, that was where it just kind of slowed to a crawl for me, the beginning seemed like it was going to be good but I ended up with one of those why isn’t anything else happening feelings. A lot of folks like this one but I guess i just wanted more futuristic or time traveling than it contained.

The Time MachineThe Time Machine by H.G. Wells

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells is a classic so I don’t really need to say much about this one since most have already read it. When you compare to scifi of today you may want a bit more, it’s not very long or elaborate compared to stories today. However, what I found the appeal to be is thinking of the time period this was written in, kind of boggles the mind thinking of these ideas in that era.
