Review: A Madness So Discreet

I’m debuting a new feature and crossposting my weekly Goodreads reviews here.

A Madness So Discreet
A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the best young adult’s book I’ve read. I liked it because the protagonist did more than try to find and maintain a romance or love triangle though some fans of the genre may consider this a drawback. She had an asylum to escape and a mystery to solve and I preferred this over her mooning over a love interest.

Review: The Every Day Novelist: Business 101

The Every Day Novelist: Business 101
The Every Day Novelist: Business 101 by J. Daniel Sawyer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a short booklet that tries to teach you to view your writing as a business and treat it as such. Though it has its own quirks you should be aware of. I learned some things I didn’t know of but it feels a little short. He’s planning on a Business 201 next which may help readers develop a working knowledge of the publishing business. I am willing to check out the next one when it comes out.

Who better to know the historical trends than a people who have lived in the Arctic year round for generations rather than a group of scientists who may visit the Arctic for short term projects?
