Rubicon | J S Dewes
Pickpick

Adrianne has resurrected or rezoned ninety six times. She is now equipped with a new VI that knows her every thought and feeling. Her officer wants to use her to aid in the war between machine and humanity.

This was interesting take as to how AI could help or hurt us in the future. I would recommend this to those who enjoy action in their science fiction with little to no romance.

King of Battle and Blood | Scarlett St Clair
Pickpick

The was my first Scarlett St. Clair read. It was spicy with a capital S. There were a few places that the plot seemed rushed or had no point, but the characters were so interesting that it overshadowed the short comings. I read this as a Fabled smut book club book of the month. I would recommend this to anyone interested in spicy fantasy.

The Hunter | Jennifer Herrera

This debut is about a rogue police officer that goes back to her hometown to help her brother on a few mysterious deaths. The details are wonderfully written. The characters are so real. Looking forward to more by this author.

I feel as though a lot of people are not giving this read the time it needs to get going. It is a very slow burn, but beautifully written. You really get to know the main character. #bookspin #tob @TheAromaofBooks

A tale on the movie industry during WWII. It was witty, but I did not like the plot.

This book took me forever to finish because it was so real and it hits on a lot of topics that have been big political issues lately. But I was still interested.

I can see why Barnes and Noble named this the book of the year for 2022. The cover is deceiving, because it makes you think of a romantic comedy. Once you delve into the first 10 chapters you realize that it is so much more. It is a woman revolution set in the 1960s.

BkClubCare It was my fave from 2022. My book club selected it next and everyone is loving it 1y

The Wilderwomen | Ruth Emmie Lang
Mehso-so

This read is about a road trip between sisters looking for their mother who had disappeared 5 years ago. It was slow in parts, and somethings seemed a little disconnected. This could have used a little a bit more editing, but it was an interesting idea. Thanks to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for this read.

Manhunt | Gretchen Felker-Martin

I read this in prep for Tournament of Books and as my bookspin. It is a dystopian horror story of trans characters hunting feral men and harvesting their organs. It was very disturbing and raw. The author definitely did not hold back. #bookspin #tournamentofbooks @thearomaofbooks

BkClubCare I am abt 1/3 in. Not sure if I will make it without a sampling-jump thru to the end. Will I really miss anything if I skip to the end? 1y
Kempfme @BkClubCare not that I can remember besides more graphic sex and dismemberment. 1y
BkClubCare @Kempfme - ty! I made it to 60% and then high-sped to the last 30 minutes or so just to see how it ended 😁 1y

My January #bookspin list. I have so many book challenges/games this year. I do Litwits and Reading Ravelry on FB. I am also going to try to read more award lists. I am also going to try to get my backlog of NetGalley and BOTM reads down. @TheAromaofBooks

This read threw me for a loop. At first I thought that I had read it or something very similar before. Then the plot went in a direction that I was not expecting.

The Every: A Novel | Dave Eggers

Dave Eggers‘s writing is so realistic that it took me 6 months to digest and finish this book of how technology is running our lives. This is the second in The Circle series.

The Q | Amy Tintera
Pickpick

Amy Tintera's The Q is a timely story about a disease getting out of control and requiring the quarantining of large part of Texas. Government has broken down and the Q is divided into sectors. When a U.S. Senator's prodigal son is illegally dropped into the Q after being kidnapped, readers are taken on a thrill ride through the territories to return him to the outside world. Along the way we get a good mixture of gun fights and romance.

Persephone Station | Stina Leicht

3.5stars. It‘s an interesting lesbian space opera. It was a little out of my wheelhouse. I needed the change from dystopian. It includes the owner of a bar that caters to criminals and an ex- marine and a head assassin. Liked the detail to action.

Lost Children Archive | Valeria Luiselli
Mehso-so

This was an interesting story about a family traveling across country. The father is looking for sounds of the Apaches. The mother is looking for information on refugee children from Mexico. The kids are there for the ride since it is summer. It was slow at first, but it became interesting as there was explanation of the contents of the boxes that they had.
