Short reviews

Not That Easy by Radhika Sanghani – (Netgalley ebook review copy) Did Not Finish. I liked the idea of a story about an intern who decides to try out casual hook ups facilitated by dating apps and gets roped into writing a column about it, but the actual attempts at hooking up veered into grotesque and a little gross, rather than funny.

My Name Is Meledandri (Vampire City book one) by Mariana Lewis – I’m not entirely sure what to make of this one. A vampire in a city plagued by monsters sleeps around and gets a crush on a slayer. It’s weird but funny and compulsively readable. Unfortunately it also ends on a cliff-hanger. For all I know it’s part of a serial but if so I didn’t know that when I bought it.
