Short Tuesday #46: “Kissing the Coronavirus” by M.J. Edwards

Well, I did it--I read the short story that at one point reached #144 on the entire Kindle story. "Kissing the Coronavirus" came onto my radar via a writing friend. ("Have you heard??" etc. etc.) Welp, I'll admit it shamelessly: 99 cents was too sweet a deal to pass up, and it took all of… Continue reading Short Tuesday #46: “Kissing the Coronavirus” by M.J. Edwards

My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix

This is the third book I've read by Hendrix, and I've loved all of them. I mean with a cover like this, it's hard to go wrong.

The Rose and the Thorn by Katherine Macdonald

This year it's seemed like every other book I've read has been a Beauty and the Beast retelling--and that's hardly an exaggeration of the real numbers.

I'd read a different story of hers last year which I adored, "Some Kind of Blood-Soaked Future," so I was excited to read something else by… Continue reading Short Tuesday #44: “Spider Season, Fire Season” by Carlie St. George
