Review: The Countess

The Countess The Countess by Rebecca Johns
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I really want to read some non-fiction about Countess Bathory, but this was the only book my library had. I thought it might at least be good for a Halloween read but it just didn't jibe with what I wanted.

Review: Ringworld

Ringworld Ringworld by Larry Niven
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I don't like to judge books harshly if they are part of a bigger whole that I am yet to be familiar with. That said, this did not live up to the hype I heard about it. I found it to be pretty boring and I couldn't visualize some of the concepts. Don't think I'll read any more of the series.

Review: Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge

Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I thought this would make a good October read but it was too ridiculous to be borne.

This review is in exchange for a free e-galley from netgalley.com.

Review: Standard Deviation

Standard Deviation Standard Deviation by Katherine Heiny
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was well written and the characters were interesting but, as a whole, I didn't fall in love with it.

Review: When Dimple Met Rishi

When Dimple Met Rishi When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I watched The Big Sick right before the library finally sent this book through from my holds list. Apparently it's the inadvertent week for arranged marriages as a sub-topic.
Anyway, this was really cute and sweet. I enjoyed reading it.

Review: Rabbit Cake

Rabbit Cake Rabbit Cake by Annie Hartnett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Some books need to have disclaimers before critical chapters that warn you to stop reading if you don't want to embarrass yourself by crying in public.

Review: Cat's Eye

Cat's Eye Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thought I'd heard somewhere that this was a creepy story but it wasn't. There were disturbing elements but it all seemed very realistic and plausible.
