Book Review of Unsanctioned Eyes by Brianna Merritt

I’m a fan of comfort zones. I’m not a huge adventurer and don’t take pleasure in running risks, even the small ones. I usually don’t venture away from my favorite genres, like fantasy and science fiction. I shy away from reading other genres, and I know that I should be dabbling in all different methods of writing and storytelling. Usually I wouldn’t pick a book off a shelf about modern day assassins and say “hey, this random book looks good!” because that’s simply not my thing.

But when Brianna Merritt, one of my favorite writers/bloggers/Twitter friends asked me to read and review her book Unsanctioned Eyes before its release date (which is JUNE 27: TODAY!!!!) I didn’t really know what the book was about, but the cover was beautiful and anything written by Ms. Merritt was bound to be good. I gave it a shot. And was held in suspense the whole time. When I finished it, all I could think about was “WOW. That was SOOO good” and “WHERE IS THE SEQUEL.”

“Make Good Art” – An Inspirational Speech by Neil Gaiman

I won a runner-up in an Instructables contest (which was called “Spectacular Failures,” so no wonder) for an attempt at carving a Harry Potter pumpkin. I was such a wonderfully horrible carver that the pumpkin looked like it was melting from within and the words “Harry Potter” barely noticeable, and so I received a prize: a book called “Make Good Art” by a guy named Neil Gaiman. At first I just shrugged and thought it was just a sarcastic joke, but I opened it up and encountered some of the best inspiration I’ve ever slammed eyes on.
