    Metamorphosis

    Metamorphosis is one of the most notorious hentai manga out there and for a while it seems like everyone was talking about it, and for good reason. Henshin, otherwise known as Emergence is the story of a nerdy young girl’s high school debut going horribly, terribly wrong, and that’s a generous way to put it. It is the classic story of the messy path to adulthood in a vile, modern society and it is told in an oppressive grimdark style. “I suddenly realized how much I had grown to hate myself.” Saki is a naive young girl that just wants to fit in, and finds herself drawn into a world…

    The Bazaar of Bad Dreams

    The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is a large collection of novellas and short stories that include a wide variety of genres. Each time I turned the page to the next story it would be kind of a wild card and I never knew what to expect which was both good and bad. While it was nice that the variety keeps things fresh, it also made the collection feel disorganized. The stories in the anthology don’t fit any particular theme, instead they just seemed like odds and ends thrown into a master volume. This will probably not be a big deal to many, but for me it just broke the flow.…

    It’s Always the Husband

    This book wasn’t quite what I was expecting, and it was both good and bad. The first half of the book was less mystery and more college drama about three friends that were more frenemies. Each of the three girls came from different social classes and the lines are clear: the rich bad girl, the middle class good girl with big ambitions, and the poor imitator trying desperately to fit in. The three women stumble into a toxic friendship full of drug fueled parties, romantic betrayals, and severe mental instability. Each girl’s personality was multifaceted and pretty well fleshed out, their story was intoxicating and incredibly unhealthy. I actually really…

    Little Lies

    It seems like I either love or hate Gudenkauf’s work and there is rarely any in between. She has a reoccurring theme of females investigating crimes and having access to information that they really shouldn’t and it can either be small enough that it can be forgiven or it can ruin the entire story. What bothered me the most about this book was how poor of a representation Ellen Moore is of a social worker. Just think, if it was you or your own children that were involved in a case, would you want the CPS worker talking to other people idly about it? Carelessly giving personal information out even…

    Here and Gone

    This book may be one of the most compelling reads that I’ve had in a while. Here and Gone is the story of a woman trying to escape an abusive marriage that finds herself in handcuffs and her children taken away by suspicious cops. It’s every parent’s worst nightmare. The opening chapters reminded me of some terrifying cases that I’ve read about innocent people being pulled over by corrupt or phony police officers. “Perhaps that was the point. To get inside her head, break her from within. Make her crazy, keep her scared. Because scared is easy to control.” The narrative swaps between characters throughout the story, sometimes swinging into…
