Eater of Mushrooms by Scott Delaney

I won Eater of Mushrooms by Scott Delaney on Goodreads as a giveaway recently. You can see my review below:

My Review: 

34371859.jpgEater of Mushrooms by Scott Delaney is a poetic novel containing over thirty poems. There are roughly sixteen characters with descriptions at the beginning of the book.

This is an interesting little book of poetry! I ended up reading this twice because I was a little confused with the characters at first. I then chose to just examine and enjoy the poetry rather than figure everything else out and it eventually came together. I liked the poetry which is very dark and graphic at times. I loved the nature feel and essence of the poetry and all the emotions that go along with the painful journey. The cover art is very pretty too and fits well with the content.

My favorites were Sunflower of the Sky, Lagotto, Bipolar Days and Set Sail. I’m looking forward to reading more poetry by this author.

I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. I’d like to thank Goodreads, The author, and the publisher.

The Farthest City by Daniel P. Swenson

I was truly psyched to win a giveaway on Goodreads a little over a month ago, and this was one of them! You can see my review below along with some author information.


27964085.jpgThe Farthest City by Daniel P. Swenson is a sci-fi story that takes place in the far future of Earth. There’s a battle forming for Earth between humans and aliens, but the humans need to find the machines (chines) that have since disappeared in order to save themselves from the aliens (Hexi).

I haven’t read much Sci-fi and this isn’t my kind of story, but I was fairly pleased with it. I liked that there were two different plots going on with different characters throughout the book. The characters were very well developed and I was pleased with the story’s end. The author writes well and is very creative to have come up with this unique story.

I did find my mind wondering a few times as the story had a few dull moments. It felt as though there were some pieces missing from the story as some things were not explained. Being that I don’t read much sci-fi, it’s possible that this is a normal aspect I’m just not used to, maybe? I believe true sci-fi fans will really like this book.

I am interested in reading more from this author and wonder if there will be another book after this! I would definitely like to read more about Kellen, Sheemi, Abby and the other characters.

I won this in a giveaway here on Goodreads. I’d like to thank Goodreads and the author.
