‘Hello Stranger:’ A Boldly Beautiful Romance

‘Hello Stranger:’ A Boldly Beautiful Romance

Historical Romance is often a genre I forget that I absolutely adore until I’ve jumped back in, and Hello Stranger was just the one to remind me. Both smartly written and tightly structured, it had the perfect blend of charmingly witty characters to keep it interesting and light while maintaining a forward-moving plot of steamy romance and cloak-and-dagger intrigue.

“Unearthed”: A Page-Turning Thrill Ride

Filled with heart-pounding action & adventure and two engaging characters, Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner felt like a wonderful sci-fi version of a mash-up of Lara Croft’s Tomb Raider and Drake’s Uncharted video games in written form. If you’re not a gamer and don’t understand the reference, think of it as a race to save humanity paired with […]

Top Recommendation for “Keep Her Safe”

Keep Her Safe by K. A. Tucker was a riveting, page-turner of a thriller with a massively intriguing storyline. There is not much I can say about the book without giving anything away, but it is about a young man and woman trying to find answers about the death of her father and the possible corruption […]

Enigmatic and bold, The Cruel Prince by Holly Black was a gripping fantasy novel about three sisters growing up in the land of Faerie with the man who killed their parents.

What follows is a review by student writer Darwin Garrett. The views do not represent the editorial opinions or content of The Siskiyou or Southern Oregon University. I am not opposed to reviews of Southern Oregon University (SOU) theater productions. To the contrary: more people should have the courage to share their thoughts on what […]
