Friday Fiction

Most Fridays we feature a fiction title that is usually anything pulp, odd covers, odd titles and anything else worth discussing! These are NOT necessarily awful.

Square Root of Sex

The Square Root of Sex

I love this cover! What’s not to love? Nerd scientists, sex research, and the word orgy as an acronym. Think of this as a send up of Masters and Johnson. Perfect for a weekend read.

Friday Fiction: Cover Art Creeps

Against That Day

I have a real problem with this cover. Is it just me or do those look like plastic disembodied heads on the cover? I also think that little girl head is creepy and I think looking at this cover I will not be able to sleep well. I think this book might have to have an “unfortunate encounter” with coffee.

I can’t really speak to the book itself. This is a Christian fiction romance about a missionary family heading to Peru. Clem, the wife has some sort of problem with Peru as her parents died there. I am sure it all works out in the end. Regardless, I am sleeping with one eye open.

Jinny Williams Returns

Jinny Williams: Library Assistant
Temkin and Hovell

I have been on the lookout for a copy of this book since we first posted it 5 years ago. Finally my constant searching on Amazon and used book stores has paid off. I now own this awesome library discard for my own personal collection.

Jinny is searching for meaning in her career and of course as we know it takes an entire library to raise a librarian. Jinny starts as a page and works her way up and finally considers librarianship a career. (What will she do with all that money and power?)  Of course there is a crabby senior librarian who gets a bit frosty at Jinny. There is even an annoying customer and minor politics! What is not to love? All she needs is a cardigan and a cat!
