Playing with Matches was reviewed in blog Books for Kids. The reviewer wrote: "Deliciously plotted and unflaggingly entertaining, the narration of Rain's double-life adventures is frantic, funny, and finally heart-warming . . . a catch readers won't want to miss."
Boring Girls by Sara Taylor was reviewed in blog The Armchair Librarian. The reviewer wrote: "What an incredibly disturbing book this was. I think I loved it."
Wrapped in Plastic: Twin Peaks by Andy Burns was reviewed in blog Beauty in Ruins. The reviewer wrote: "Fans will find a lot to appreciate in Wrapped in Plastic: Twin Peaks. Along with reminding us of how fantastic the show was, it's a great recap of the characters and story lines, and a perfect way to get quickly reacquainted with the world Lynch and Frost created."
So Long, Marianne: A Love Story by Kari Hesthamar was included in the Montreal Gazette's Best Books of 2014. Reviewer Ian McGillis wrote: “A bohemian time and place so tantalizingly evoked by the famous snap on the back cover of Songs From a Room, and a mythologized affair that received a lasting benediction from the song that provides the book with its title, are explored in greater depth than the standard biographies allow through interviews with both Ilhen and Cohen. As a considerable bonus, there are some hitherto unseen Cohen poems.”
Failure to Thrive by Suzannah Showler was included in the National Post's Top 2,014 Things of 2014. They wrote: "Susannah Showler’s Failure to Thrive is a flippant rejoinder to the myriad pressures on quote-unquote millennials — Showler’s brainy debut calls out the precariousness of this time above others."
