Smashwords book reviews by Marie Simone

  • And Then Something Cool Happened on May 06, 2015

    I received a copy of this book from a LibraryThing giveaway in exchange for a for an honest review. This book is a collection of short stories, mostly unrelated besides some strange aspect in each, sometimes fantastical and other times just humourous. Overall I found them enjoyable, though I considered some of the stories good and not great. The earlier ones tended to have an overload of detail that really took away from getting into the reading, most notably in the set-up of the background for 'The Last Time I Did Acid'. However, the stories seem to improve as you move through the collection and I found the final story to be my absolute favourite and one of the best-written, definitely a solid end to this book.
  • A Wrinkle in Crime; 10 Stories of Foul Play, Murder and Revenge on May 06, 2015

    I received a copy of this book from a LibraryThing giveaway in exchange for a review. Crime is one of my favourite genres and this collection definitely lived up to my expectations! Although there are short stories (some very, very short), each one was compelling and had well thought-out characters. Many of them have some twist, and though the first couple were predictable I found myself drawn in to try to figure it out before it was revealed. A great book all-around!!
