Think of “Room” as an experiment of sorts. It isn’t a lengthy or overly demanding piece, despite the hesitant progress and rereading that comes with its opening chapters and initially distracting presentation. It is the sort of book that, regardless of one’s final opinion, will stick to the back of the consciousness for days afterward, demanding contemplation and consideration.

Review: Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk
“Haunted” is not powerful. It is not poignant. It is not smart. It is simply a waste, and I regret reading it wholeheartedly.

Review: 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill
It is doubtful that one will truly like every piece found here, but so too is it unlikely that one will dislike them all. The important thing to note is that the highs and lows are evenly spread throughout and for the most part mild in their permutations, and should consequently ensure an engaging reading experience from beginning to end.
Review: Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach
Meg reviews Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach. It’s all the best bits of scifi with a fantastic cast of characters on top.
Review: 11/22/63 by Stephen King
“11/22/63” is not a horror story, nor a science-fiction one. It is not a thriller, nor a romance. It is a great many things, and something worth the time of King fans and general fiction readers alike.
Review: A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin
“A Dance with Dragons” is not perfect, but it is an excellent sequel nonetheless. It may be overlong. It may be overwritten. I simply cannot bring myself to care.
Review: The Magicians by Lev Grossman
Though it ends with a (fairly ridiculous) cliffhanger, “The Magicians” isn’t near captivating enough to make it a story worth rereading or immediately following up on.
Review: Parasite by Mira Grant
Meg on Parasite: You’ve got to love a book that speculates on how reckless scientific advancement and human ego are all it takes to bring down society.

Random Reads: T-Rex Troubles by Christie Sims & Alara Branwen
Steph reviews T-Rex Troubles per Cuddlebuggery’s suggestion box. She’s not exactly sure that was a smart idea, but it did afford her many LOLZ.
Review: The Shining by Stephen King
It’s frightening, it’s complex, and it’s a wild ride. True, the author can get bogged down in tedious descriptions and exposition, and lose the power of his subtlety with the inevitable climax of extravagance that tends to make an appearance near the end, but the plot is no less compelling because of either tendency.
Review: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
It is a sweet yet hard-edged tale, easy to pick up and easy to finish, and the lack of commitment makes “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” a book that every reader can pick up.

Review: We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
It may not be an enjoyable reading experience, but I believe that “We Need to Talk About Kevin” is an important one.
Review: A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin
Nonetheless, it’s clear that Martin’s less-than-best still proves for entertaining and emotionally tumultuous reading, and stands as another worthy installment in one of literature’s most complex epics.
Review: A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin
“A Storm of Swords” is huge, heartbreaking, and nothing if not intense. Be prepared for tragedy, and a lot of it.
Review: Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde
It’s quirky, well-written, smart, witty, and emotional. It has everything that a certain other book with a rather similar name does not have.
Review: Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
Don’t read this. Not even as a joke. It’s just not worth it.
