HOT SAUCE REVIEWS: BOOKS
Mostly romance novels, but also fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and occasional non-fiction get celebrated and skewered like only Mrs Giggles can, heh.
It has ships and murder, and yet I feel like I’m trapped in some kind of wake where I don’t even know the fellow who died.
So, how much do you like staring at an author’s belly button?
Irritant’s Babysitter is a more accurate title for this story, but I guess it won’t be as marketable.
Thin is beautiful, and if we aren’t thin, we won’t get that hot guy to fall in love with us! Whatever, give me my chocolates.
Oh, we have an almost winner here. Never mind, here’s all my hugs and kisses anyway.
Jane Feather almost returns to top form here. This one has a heroine that breaks all the rules, shame that the tale doesn’t entirely deliver.
The real magic show here is how the author can send me into a bored stupor in such a short time.
Fancy a Morgan-flavored pinot noir with your Christmas turkey? You’d love the familiar taste of double standards that put women in their place.
Another very average Christmas anthology. Well, good thing there are so many of them, so if you give this one a miss, no harm done.
KL Noir: Yellow closes Malaysia’s very own English noir anthology series, and that sound you hear is a limp pop rather than a bang.
If you ever wondered what it’d be like if Kate Daniels and Curran the Pig-Wolf are X-Men, here you go. Enjoy.
A social justice warrior and her white knight take part in the steampunk version of Wacky Races. How nice.
Here’s your chance to touch a mummy – well, not really, but close, as this is a fancy “3D interactive” history book.
Christmas spirit be damned, this is one secret baby book from hell to run away screaming from.
The best thing I can say about this one is YEEEEES, THE SERIES IS DONE WITH. OVER. HALLELOO!
Unoriginal, predictable, familiar, conventional… but I love almost every minute of it. Oh, be quiet or I’ll IP-ban you from here.
Why do I have this feeling that I am in competition with the author for the affections of her hero?
The shrew falls in love – an unexpectedly memorable character study of a damaged heroine who doesn’t care if you like her.
It’s such a nice change of pace to read about a lovelorn romantic guy instead of an alpha mule.

The layouts of those old reviews are not very user-friendly if you use a smartphone or a tablet, sorry about that.
