Sara Habein’s #CBR5 Reviews #16-19

Forgive me for a link dump, friends, but let me get caught up on where my book reviews have appeared lately…

ultimate-guide-prostate-pleasure-199x300Book #16: The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure by Charlie Glickman and Aislinn Emirzian

(Because sometimes review copies turn up in the mail, and I think, “Huh. Okay. We’ll give this a whirl.”)

My full review can be found at Persephone Magazine: “Feminist sex guides aimed at men: They exist, y’all.”

 

 

unchangeable-spots-leopards-jansmaBook #17: The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards by Kristopher Jansma

(As recommended by Pajiba’s own Joanna Robinson.)

My full review can be found at Glorified Love Letters:The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards is not terribly long for a novel, which makes it all the more amazing that Kristopher Jansma is able to weave together so much simultaneous information and mystery. I loved it, and I will eagerly await any other books he may release in the future.”

pain-parties-work-plathBook #18: Pain, Parties, Work: Sylvia Plath in New York, Summer 1953 by Elizabeth Winder

My full review can be found at P-Mag: “If Pain, Parties, Work is supposed to be a commentary on the whole of standards applied to young women, then the followup interviews with her fellow guest editors make sense. We find out about how the magazine work informed the rest of their lives, and how the women handled it in different ways. If it’s supposed to be a book about how this time broke the “sunny” girl, then there’s not enough information. A major Sylvia Plath fan may still enjoy this book for whatever new facts they might glean, but for anyone else, one might be better off sticking to Plath’s actual work.”

suite-encounters-hotel-sex-busselBook #19: Suite Encounters edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

My full review can be found at Glorified Love Letters: “I can’t tell you your own desires, but I can tell you that I liked it. The hotel room is a fantastic setting around which to assemble a short stories (erotica or otherwise), and Suite Encounters (if you’ll forgive my word play here) provides above-and-beyond service.”
