Sunday Book Review: Untethered and Monochrome

Yep, I know its Monday, not Sunday, but last week my week ended up eaten by GeekGirlCon which is an awesome convention in Seattle. So I made the video today instead and have two books I want to share with you.

They are listed in the order that I read them. Untethered: A Magic Iphone Anthology edited  Janine A. Southard, with stories from Rhiannon HeldManny FrishbergEdd VickH.M. JonesKris MilleringJon LasserRaven Oak ,Sarina DorieJonathon BurgessJeremiah ReinmillerC.S. O’CinneideStevehen WarrenAaron Giddings, Sr.Amanda HackwithDale Cameron LowryAngela Dell’IsolaDawn VogelStephanie DjockKyle YadloskyA. MoritzJ.S. Rogers

Like all anthologies there were stories I like better than others, but all the stories had a fun cleverness that I enjoyed. If you like reading stories about modern tech with fantastic elements, you’ll enjoy this anthology. 4 stars

The second book is Monochrome by HM Jones.Though HM Jones is in the above anthology, the two books couldn’t be more different. That being said, Monochrome has so much going for it. Suffering from severe post-partum depression, Abigail flies into a rage and begins to believe that her family would be better off without her. She finds herself in Monochrome: the physical manifestation of her depressed mind where everything is blue. She finds herself with a man named Ishmael Doubois who says he is her Guide. The Guides create a path through Monochrome. Then like Dorothy in Oz, Abigail has to find her way out of Monochrome to find her way home to her husband and child. 4 1/2 stars


A regular feature to my blog, Elizabeth’s Sunday Book Review, is simply a review of the book (or books) I read during the previous week on Sunday. Since I started adding videos, I started doing stars. I do say what I liked and didn’t like. You will notice that some will be independent titles, some will be mass market books, others will be classics. I write a review on whatever I read that week.
