The Lady or the Tiger by Frank R. Stockton

The Lady, or the Tiger? - Kindle edition by Stockton, Frank R. . Mystery,  Thriller & Suspense Kindle eBooks @

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This is a very short story that leaves an ambiguous ending for the reader to decide how this story ends. After sitting with this story for many months my answer has changed for how I perceived this story to end. Originally, I claimed she fed him to the tiger but, now I think it’s written in a way to lean into that direction. It heavily focuses on her jealousy of the woman who’s behind the door and she is the daughter of a barbaric king.

Magic of Writing Creating Stories that Fly by Gail Carson Levine

Writing Magic: Creating Stories that Fly: Levine, Gail Carson:  9780060519612: Books

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

This is an interactive book to help teenagers or newbies in writing. It has tips and tricks with prompts and antecedents of her own writing. This is a great place to start or even for those getting back into the practice to help with warm-ups with a look at basics.

Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend

The Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor, #1)

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This was a fun Middle Grade adventure. I never knew where this story was going or what would happen next which I love a ton about middle grade. There’s just a whimsy that you can’t find anywhere else. I loved the characters and the strange world. I look forward to the rest of the series.    

The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso

The Obsidian Tower (Rooks and Ruin, #1)

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Did you ever run in circles as a kid and then immediately regret it?

That’s how reading this felt like. Round & round the same conversations with the same people in the same room. It was dizzying to say the least and not at all entertaining. Characters had potential but they couldn’t even save this.

Pursuing Madness by Stacey Rourke

Pursuing Madness (Unfortunate Soul Chronicles, #3)

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

The last in the Unfortunate Soul Chronicles & it left on a disappointing note. The resolution of our main characters happens off the page ??? Isn’t the whole point of a story is to be on page. This is the third book & every book has a different main character but all 3 are introduced in the first book. I’m just confused & disheartened to end the story this way. This series had so much potential because they were interesting and entertaining until the end.
