Take that waning attention spans! I have reviewed all the books I completed this month in one sentence each. Flash reviews are too long. Review reviews are too long. Nobody has any time. Faster faster faster! WELL. Now you can read all about every single book I’ve read this month in under three minutes.
City of Saints and Madmen by Jeff VanderMeer. I love you I love you I love you I love you will you marry me?
Dark Star by Oliver Langmead. I can’t believe I’m enjoying epic poetry.
The Aftermath of Forever by Natalie Childress. I’m glad you moved to Germany and found love.
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. Double fuck yeah. (I’m a shark!)
Mind of My Mind by Octavia Butler. Fuck that Doro guy.
Fire Logic by Laurie Marks. The more I think about you, which is turning out to be all the time, the less I can remember what I found fault with and the more willing I become to commit to the other three books in the series.
Tunnel People by Tuen Voeten. Who needs fantasy novels when reality contains settings this bizarre?
Kraken by China Mieville. God damn it, this could have been fucking amazing.
Earthworks by Brian Aldiss. Wait, what?
School’s Out by Scott K. Andrews. Crucifying people is bad for PR; also, school bullies are way worse after the apocalypse and should be killed immediately.
Operation Motherland by Scott K. Andrews. Maybe I shouldn’t read multiple violent child-protag’ed apocalypses in a row.
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. I loved this enough to read it twice in one month.
Children’s Crusade by Scott K Andrews. Well, that was fucked up.
Radiant by Karina Sumner-Smith. Ooo, cool, ghosts and deep female friendships and magic and mystery and ruins.
Osama by Lavie Tidhar. Worthy company for Man in the High Castle and The City and the City.
Now you! Please leave a one-sentence review of a book you read recently in the comments. Because writing these and reading these has turned out to be far more entertaining than seemed possible.
