review 1: I picked up this book at the shopping centre near my place for a clearcance of books, I was attracted by the cover and it is so cheap so I bought it and never regretted... Haha! I read it in one day and was captivated by this dark, exciting and action-pact read! I like Miriam Bla...

review 1: A sucker for unique takes on mythology, this book was a natural fit for me. I'm also easily lost if the mythology, surprise, language, characters and plotline don't hold up. Wendig does a beautiful job of giving us gods with a mingling of human and godly problems, as well as his ...

review 1: The 2 doesn't mean I didn't like reading the book. It was a fun romp in an interesting supernatural environment. I know there are more coming in this series and I will be reading them. With that being said, It was not what I would call "well written". The characters are skin-deep...

review 1: This is the second book in a series about Miriam Black, a girl who sees people's deaths when she touches them. This one is about her finding herself more...moving beyond being a grifter who steals from people as they die. It is still really violent but not quite so gruesome as th...

review 1: Brilliance, just sheer brilliance. Chuck Wendig delivers once again with his third book of the Miriam Black series, The Comorant. This novel is a wild ride, just like the others, from the first page to the last. Wendig paints his scenery with the hand of an artist with the vulgar...
250 Things You Should Know About Writing (2000)
language
English

review 1: I really enjoyed 250 Things You Should Know About Writing by Chuck Wendig. Wendig brings the funny, the vulgarity, and a weird affinity for unicorns, not unlike what you'll find on his blog terribleminds. He gives you some great advice and insight on what you need to know when wr...

review 1: This was my first Chuck Wendig book, and I must say he is twisted individual. Just my type. I loved this book. A vampire wakes up, a dried husk jolted back to life was dripping blood. He finds the world is full of zombies and his live blood supply is dwindling fast, so he has...
Under the Empyrean Sky (2013)

English

review 1: I find it really hard to get into a book when I dislike the main character, or at least if he isn't interesting. I was reading this on my kindle, so I had a nice counter in the bottom that told me I was 48% of the way through before anything really felt like it happened. The en...
Irregular Creatures (2000)
language
English
3.93 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: A strange and wonderful collection of stories that ran the gambit of genres. Wendig's writing has the odd quality of leaving feeling raw and hungry for more. There was one story 'Lethe and Mnemosyne' I think? That was short enough that I missed when it ended and was very confused...
Confessions of a Freelance Penmonkey (2011)
language
English
4.36 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Chuck Wendig has done a splendiferous job of combining two of my favorite things: writing and profuse swearing. Where similar instruction books might be content holding your hand and guiding you through the (often over-hyped) joys of writing, Wendig instead smacks you upside the ...

English
series

review 1: Oh Miriam Black, you crazy girl! I just love this character. Wendig has crafted one ballsy chic! Mockingbird continues to unravel the story of Miriam's fate (and her fight against Fate), as she bangs her head against walls (literally) in an attempt to save doomed troubled girls.I...

review 1: Miriam is back and in my opinion this is the best book in the series so far. We get see Miriam really deal with her gift and it's consequences. Couple that with the large amount of backstory and our heroine becomes so much more than she was in the other books. I really like the s...

4.21 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Bait Dog This story is far off the beaten track for me and difficult to characterize. You could say it's YA because our protagonist is a teenager in high school but the themes and situations that Atlanta finds herself in are very much on the adult end of the spectrum. Since she i...

review 1: Don't Read This Book is a compendium of short stories based on the tabletop roleplaying game Don't Rest Your Head, a brilliant little number based on the idea that when you stay awake for a sufficiently prolonged period of time, you begin to operate on the wavelength of the Mad C...
