What genres do I review?
Strictly Scifi and Fantasy. That being said, I include every subgenre out there in the book-o-sphere. A story about elegant steampunk ladies battling Lovecraftian monsters from space? I'll take it on. Middle Grade and Young Adult are also included in this mix because there's some phenomenal MG and YA specimens of the genre.
What's this three point dealie?
I hate basic summaries. They're more boring than a three hour lecture on the mating habits of South American frogs. So I take a book, distill it down to a major theme and nail down the important bits that way. Hence the minefield of spoilers, since I like to throw down the meat of the story from the start.
Want me to review a specific book?
I'll gladly check out any SciFi/Fantasy book and throw it through the blender to splash out onto this page. Send it my way at KMcIntyreMT@gmail.com and chances are it'll show up as one of my next reviews.
The ratings and reviews of the book are my personal opinion. While I may make snarky comments for the sake of humor, I try to be honest and include the positive about every book I read.If you're unsure whether or not it's my type of book, check out the books I've listed under "Rereadable" or "One of the Holy Few."

1- It was so terrible I couldn't finish it, not even for the sake of the blog. Could be for a million reasons. Is the style clunky and atrocious? Does the main character have a serious case of TSTL (too stupid to live)?
2- I was able to read the book, but would've probably put it down and not been that heartbroken. Reasons could include shoddy pacing, annoying characters or sheer boredom. Still redeemable though or else I wouldn't finish it.
3-Enjoyed the book. Probably wouldn't be rereading it a bunch of times, but definitely a worthwhile investment of my time. The story kept moving and entertained me.
4-Loved the book. Would recommend it to my co-workers, my friends, even my future dog. Would gladly read over again and encourage others to read.
5-Sheer genius. I'm talking heart aching, tear jerking, gasp out loud genius. Very rare, like the mythical unicorn.
