I wanted to like Blackbirds, but I just couldn’t get into it. The first few pages were awesome, but after that realization sunk into me that Miriam – though amusingly crude – feels like a middle-aged man’s version of a spunky young woman. And the other characters felt a bit like they were extras pai...

I truly wanted to like this one more than I did. Definitely entertaining and written very well, but a wee generic for me. Nothing too original here story wise, however the main character Miram Black was drawn extremely well and pretty much carries the whole thing on her shoulders. I suppose that was...

2.5 stars really. I tend to bounce HARD off of styles like Wendig has used here. the gritty, dirty, life is ugly and so is my 'realistic' writing. that style turns me off majorly. I also never forgot that a man wrote this. despite having a female (3rd person) POV, it was just so definitely written b...

Meet Miriam Black. She's a badass extraordinaire. She curses like a sailor and she knows how and when you're going to die. That's the gist of this fast paced novel by Chuck Wendig. It poses an excellent question: What good is it knowing when and how people are going to die, if you can't change it?...

This book is so far outside my normal comfort zone that it needs an international number! That being said, I was fascinated. I could NOT put it down, even when it was at its most horrific and I was at my most disturbed. *LOL* Chuck Wendig has a singular voice. I have been reading his blog fo...

I am just going to tell you straight up that I did not enjoy this book. My sister and I picked it up based on the jacket description, hoping for a Dean Koontz "Odd Thomas"-esque vibe....unfortunately, it could not have been less what I was actually hoping to read.I knew almost from the first page th...

This is a tough one to review. Not because my reaction to the read wasn’t particularly clear –it was– but because my good friends over at Shelf Inflicted and I differ significantly in our opinions. No doubt, most of the issue is simply motivations and taste; why we read and what our preferable typ...

Miriam Black doesn't want your help. She’s a loner by choice. Why? Well, Miriam can tell you with 100% accuracy when and how you’re going to die. With a little simple skin on skin action, she can peer into the future and find out when you’re going to meet your maker. Big deal right? If Miriam ...
