6 Stars for the Christina Lauren’s newest novel

Love and Other Words, which was officially released yesterday, was a beautiful and emotional journey of exploration, first love, and the crucial moments that can long effect you into adulthood.  After finishing it last week, it took me a few days to find words to express the praise I have for this story. Each alternating timeline of […]

Siskiyou Review: Another Romance, Unique and Touching in its own right

Siskiyou Review: Another Romance, Unique and Touching in its own right

Only You was a touching and sweepingly romantic tale of a woman falling for a man as he falls for parenthood. With Melanie Harlow’s magnetic writing, this story and its characters were evocative and vivid in their portrayal from the very first page, and they carried in that same fashion until the end. Its allure stemmed […]

Siskiyou Review: ‘Getaway Girl’ get 5 Stars

Siskiyou Review: ‘Getaway Girl’ get 5 Stars

Getaway Girl by Tessa Bailey was the quintessential friends-to-lovers romance with an angst-filled and wonderfully written lead-up from friendship to beyond. Most crucial to this story was the friendship between Addison and Elijah. Bailey took her time with it, creating and crafting a close companionship that spoke louder than attractions and became this foundation for two […]

Spotlight: The Wood Brothers go on tour

The Wood Brothers have been playing together since 2004, creating folk music that makes you feel as if you’re sitting around a campfire deep in the mountains.

I made countless excuses when Dr. Megan Farnsworth, the professor who is ahead of the Educate Chombo Committee, first presented me with the idea that I […]

“Unearthed”: A Page-Turning Thrill Ride

“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”

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 […]

Book Review: 5 Stars for “The Cruel Prince”

Book Review: 5 Stars for “The Cruel Prince”

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. Brimming with complex characters and political conspiracies, the story played out in a dramatic fashion from beginning to end. The writing–skilled in engulfing the […]

Counter Review: “Mr. Burns”

Counter Review: “Mr. Burns”

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 […]
