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.
Pen & Ink is all about the sad, funny, and stupid stories behind one’s tattoo(s). It’s quite the beach read.
Wake me up when they make a movie version starring Alaska Thunderfuck 5000 and Spikey Van Dykey.
No, not loving this, not even a little. But at least the whole “women are all shallow whores, except our heroines” nonsense is over. For now.
Once the author gets all the misogyny and double standards out of the way, the story is actually readable.
Guy who can’t trust women ends up mistrusting the woman that has fallen in love with him. Shocking, isn’t it?
A white dude decides to write stories about the racism and what not in Malaysia. That takes balls, shame about the middling result.
Just when the party is heating up, it’s time to say goodbye to the Edge with a book that hits as much as it misses the mark.
Is there life after Kate Daniels? If Fate’s Edge is anything to go by, oh yes, lots of it. Praise Jeebus and all that jazz.
All that glitters aren’t exactly gold in the looting primer Treasure: Fortunes Lost and Found.
Third book in a row, and Pamela Yaye is still not done with thin and beautiful women. They are all skanks! Kill them all!
I think the author is laboring under this belief that Seduced by the CEO is something very different from what it actually is.
Wicked Temptation features main characters who are just too capable to the point that the story lacks compelling suspense.
It’s set in show business, and like 90% of other romances set in show business, it’s just dumb.
The romance is fine, the pacing is solid, the premise is good… but the plot! Where’s the suspense?
Is this a standalone story, or a thinly-veiled ad and fanservice for the author’s Lady Julia Grey books?
Candace Shaw’s Kimani debut is as lively as the newest arrival in the neighborhood morgue. Zzzzzz…
With Siren of Gaul, we’re moving right into old-school Bertrice Small-type historical bodice rippers. Oh joy.
This gorgeously illustrated book is almost as good as a trip to space itself.
Mamü Vies goes all B-grade action movie on everybody in Dog Pound, and it’s great. Except, I want more violence, more blood!
Here’s a collection of stuff from one of Malaysia’s more popular horror authors. It’s too bad that I can’t get with his style.

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