Smashwords book reviews by Hannah Hummel

  • Reflections on Motherhood on July 08, 2011

    Reflections on Motherhood by Karen Fowler was not your typical "feel good" book. It was a refreshing change from the saccharin sweet stories of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and others. Ms. Fowler chose selections that captured the true essence of motherhood.
  • Henry's Nursing Notes on July 08, 2011

    Some of the scenes in this book were funny, in a dark humor kind of way, but many lack any type of context leaving them flat and void of meaning to the reader. Use of unexplained acronyms also makes it inaccessible to a reader without a medical background.
  • Dirty Little Angels on July 08, 2011

    If I had a dollar for every sentence in Dirty Little Angels that blew my mind, I'd be able to buy a decent Chevy Nova outright. Christopher Tusa is a new and powerful voice in American fiction, and I truly believe that this raw and poetic first novel marks the beginning of a great and glorious career.
  • Murder in the Philosophy Department on July 08, 2011

    Murder in the Philosophy Department is a very well written cozy mystery set at a small, cut-rate college somewhere in the US. The characters are delightful and engaging. Liza Ryder and her dogs are truly fun, interesting characters.
  • Isle of Stumps on July 11, 2011

    I loved it because it included a lot of short stories. It continued to keep my attention.
  • Barbary Point on July 13, 2011

    It will make you laugh and cry. It's so well written that you will feel the pain that Kelly, and I'm sure her father too, felt throughout their lives.
  • The Virgin King on July 15, 2011

    This book by Fullam is an interesting read. The ending is not expected, and some of the characters are a little "starchy", they do not seem to me to be fully fleshed out.
  • Surface in Heaven on July 15, 2011

    The plot was understandable, but things moved way to fast. I think the author would do well to learn how to slow down and be more descriptive. The continual jumping around between planets made it hard to keep up.
  • Gravity on July 15, 2011

    It started off well, with a mystery and an interesting heroine, and soon got plodded down in a lot of telling instead of showing in terms of the school scenes, and then I just kind of lost interest after that.
  • Shelter (Blood Haze: Book One) on July 23, 2011

    The basic notion had potential, but it read like it was (a) written by an angsty 16yo or (b) a unreviewed, unrevised first draft.
  • Psychomancer on July 23, 2011

    Psychomancer is alternatingly funny and horrific, philosophical and explosive. It asks: When good luck is real, what happens if we end up on the wrong end of someone else’s?
  • Clouded Rainbow on July 27, 2011

    I enjoyed the writers style and think he uses excellent expression.
  • If You Go Into The Woods on July 27, 2011

    I really liked both of these stories. If You Go into the Woods and the bonus story, The Reset Button were immediately engaging.
  • Transfection on July 27, 2011

    I laughed out loud at some of the antics as I was reading. Transfection is well worth the price-tag...yet another well written and, dare I say again, thought provoking, tale from David Gaughran
  • Hot Ticket (Ticket Trilogy #1) on July 27, 2011

    Hot Ticket is a fun story that children in middle school can relate too, yet has interesting twists and turns.
  • Ghost Plane and Other Disturbing Tales on July 29, 2011

    Suzanne Tyrpak shows in these tales that horror can not only aspire to literary value, but also explore emotional and psychological terrain.
  • Three for Avadar on July 30, 2011

    Three for Avadar was a great read and fast paced story. Overall the author did a great job but I feel he could've developed the characters more.
  • LilyPad Princess on Aug. 02, 2011

    I really enjoyed reading about the main characters and how responsible they were in trying to solve the problems that were occuring at the palace and how redaly a person was excepted even for being different. I would recommend this book for elementary readers and up.
  • The Leaving: A Novel on Aug. 05, 2011

    It's a good book for teenagers and young adults that want to read about self-identity, coming out of the closet, relationships, acceptance and maturity through the eyes of a female fictional character.
  • The Leaving: A Novel on Aug. 05, 2011

    It's a good book for teenagers and young adults that want to read about self-identity, coming out of the closet, relationships, acceptance and maturity through the eyes of a female fictional character.
  • Program 13 (The Emile Reed Chronicles, #1) on Aug. 07, 2011

    This book had a good plot that was easy to follow. Futuristic technology is heavily involved.

  • "Wake up..." on Aug. 14, 2011

    City of Roses is a serialized epic very firmly set in Portland, Oregon—an urban fantasy mixing magical realism with gonzo noirish prose, where duels are fought in Pioneer Square and union meetings are beseiged by ghost bicycles.
  • Stray : Touchstone Part 1 on Aug. 29, 2011

    I must say right from the start that I am a huge fan of fantasy, not so big a fan of Sci-Fi. But I was taken from the start with this book. The main character, Cass, is very well written.
  • Gifts and Consequences on Sep. 04, 2011

    This is a good book for just about anyone. I could have read it to my husband and kids and they would have benefited from it as well. It kept me engaged throughout the entire book. Before I began I thought it would be like so many of the other books with the theme of wealthy person helps less fortunate people. I am happy to say that from the beginning of the book all the way to the end, I could not have been more wrong. Daniel Coleman has given the story an interesting twist and it works marvelously! The story is believable and the reading is enjoyable.
  • Harbingers of Mortality on Sep. 04, 2011

    Harbingers of Mortality is the second book in The Histories of Atreus series by Steve Thomas. The books are however both stand alone stories. They both take place in Kalharia, but the only character they share is Atreus the King of the Underworld and chronicler of human history.
  • Restless Highways on Sep. 04, 2011

    Melissa Webb has put together a cluster of thrilling stories, ranging from suspenseful to horrifying. As a compilation, I felt that some of the stories were short and sweet, with potential to develop into something more. There were other stories, however, I felt were incomplete and lacking in maintaining the reader's attention. Out of all the tales, I liked the unexpected twist-ending of "You Never Know What You'll Find," which I also felt had the most developed characters. I also found "The Message," like several other stories to have a nice touch of dark humor. Finally, I thought that "Forever" was a nice juxtaposition to all the fantasy vampire tales out there these days.
  • The Traveler's Companion on Sep. 05, 2011

    This was a fantastic read! What happens when an alternate universe created by each specific individual is about to be released to the world? Especially after it is revealed that any length of time in "The Zone" causes insanity? Very exciting, well written. I loved it!
  • Blood Duty on Sep. 05, 2011

    I think the story itself is best described as a “high fantasy romance”. The world-building is perhaps the most remarkable part of this story; it was clearly given a lot of thought and fleshing-out prior to the story being written. The plot itself is soundly constructed, moving from one point to the next without wandering or getting wrapped around itself.
  • Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave on Sep. 05, 2011

    Sibel Hodge paints a vivid picture of a woman caught up in a global travesty of our time: Sex-Slave Trafficking. Using the Diary format to tell Elena's story of betrayal, helplessness, and degradation, Hodge sheds light on an industry that preys on thousands of young women every day. Using a novelist's skill, we come to care for Elena quickly. Women readers can easily relate to Elena and how she feels caught in the trap of prostitution. The piece is gritty, but not gruesome. I read it in one sitting. It left me feeling like I wanted to DO SOMETHING, which I imagine was the reason Sibel diverted from her usual chick-lit fare to tackle a serious subject. Hopefully, the pen truly is mightier than the sword, and "Diary" will help raise awareness and action against one of the most shameful elements of modern times. Change begins with resolve. I admire Sibel Hodge for devoting her time and talent keeping this issue in the spotlight.
  • Shrinkage on Sep. 09, 2011

    Everyone gets caught up from time to time on those parts of our life we 'think' need improvement, this story is a great testimony to the fact that the grass isn't always greener on the other side and sometimes people get way too hung up on little things (Erm... no pun intended). It's an awesome look into a man's mind and somehow comforting to know they have just as many hang-ups as we women do. Nothing heavy or life-altering here just a devilishly fun read that will make you laugh out loud.
  • Friends With Partial Benefits (Friends With Benefits Series (Book 1)) on Sep. 09, 2011

    There are a lot of really terrible romance novels out there, but this is not one of them. I really loved this book. It was a fun, funny romance with characters that I would love to know myself, especially Victoria the main character Jillian's best friend.
  • Symphony of Blood, A Hank Mondale Supernatural Case on Sep. 09, 2011

    Right I off the bat I liked Hank Mondale. There was something easily relatable to his hard luck ways and poor decision making. You really root for his character to get out of the hole he seems to dig himself in throughout the book. As the book progresses it starts to get darker and darker. You start to realize how disturbed the Blake family really is and begin to question what exactly is Hank trying to find?
  • American Nightmare on Sep. 10, 2011

    I was given a complimentary copy for review. The premise itself is quite good. Mild mannered Bob loses his job and goes on a killing spree. The author did have some good ideas.
  • The Old One on Sep. 17, 2011

    I really was captivated by this story but the pace was slow, that is what made you want to keep reading. There was so much that I couldn't put it down because the plot was very interesting and certainly something different from what's out there.
  • Let's Get Digital: How To Self-Publish, And Why You Should on Sep. 17, 2011

    Gaughran talks about the recent wave of self-publishing success stories, Amazon's power, the importance of cover design and professional editing, formatting, writing, short stories, pricing, international differences, blogging, marketing, social media, reviews, giveaways, various e-publishing options, what to do when your sales stop, and contains several resources you should get familiar with.
  • Renntag in Kruschar on Oct. 11, 2011

    The stories are told exciting, that prepared characters well and really with raves one. Me the book personally has please very well just because I came not therefrom away, but rather it me regular firmly bit nevertheless can have one between the single stories more or less disengage, again newly is taken in here then however into each single story. Likewise it is are an enjoyment to regain if in other stories already well known people.
  • The Patriot Paradox on Oct. 11, 2011

    The plot held a healthy dose of excitement, love and spunk and the story carries well. The story is easy to read. I would love to see the story progress further and learn more about the cast. We meet some new characters and I would love to see more of them as well.
  • Elegy: Book 1 of the Arbiter Codex on Oct. 11, 2011
