Fate is Inexorable

A clever heroine who falls for a ruined house... and the house that has a mind of its own falls for her. When C.M. Rosens offered to let me beta read The Crows, I couldn't be more excited. Curses, a murder, and a spooky town all wrapped up in a blanket of dark humor? A … Continue reading Fate is Inexorable

Curio Cabinet

I spend too much time on Twitter cruising through various writers' timelines, soaking up all of their awesomeness. This time, my bad habit paid off in the form of an ARC. Carol Beth Anderson graciously offered me an e-copy of the ARC of her newest release, The Curio Cabinet, and as a huge fan of … Continue reading Curio Cabinet

Myths and Magic

At the beginning of this year, I entered an Instagram giveaway and won a copy of Mikki Noble's book, Piggybacker. It several months to get my act together and read it, and even longer to gather my thoughts to write a review. One thing is for certain: I adored reading this. Everyone thinks Marley tried … Continue reading Myths and Magic

Kingdom of Night, Kingdom of Day

Anyone who knows me knows that I've been obsessed with A.G. Howard's books since I first picked up Splintered years ago. So when she announced the title of her book coming out in 2019, I waited. And waited. And it felt like I was waiting for centuries until I assumed the worst and that I'd … Continue reading Kingdom of Night, Kingdom of Day

Sandcastles, Seafood, and Sluggish Summer Days

ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Right around the time where I was considering going on an social media hiatus, Lillie Vale tweeted, asking if anyone was interested in reading an ARC of her debut, Small Town Hearts. I've read her works from Wattpad and have fallen in love with her … Continue reading Sandcastles, Seafood, and Sluggish Summer Days

Qnd Eldr. Breathe Fire.

I love Goodreads.  I find it to be such a calm social media platform and almost all of my favorite authors are on there.  There are so many great discussion groups and books and giveaways.  I love the giveaways, and Adrienne Young's Sky in the Deep was the first one that I won.  I practically screamed … Continue reading Qnd Eldr. Breathe Fire.

Queen of Thieves

Time-travel books are by far my favorite type of book.  Even more than fae books. I freeze and gape in horror at what I just typed.  "Le gasp!  How dare I?" Oh, I dare. Before No Good Deed by Kara Connolly appeared on the "new books" shelf in the library, I'd exhausted the Young Adult department's … Continue reading Queen of Thieves

Paranoia, is That You?

Ever since I convinced my mom to read the River of Time series by Lisa T. Bergren back in 2012 and we some of the other's favorite books, we trust each other.  When it comes to books, if my mom tells me to read a book or thinks that I'll like it, I'll give it a … Continue reading Paranoia, is That You?

Is it a Kitsune?

  The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken has one of those covers that makes me want to gobble it up.  The dark grays and blues and that eerie candle in the background grabbed my attention.  I felt like curling up on the floor next to my dog with a fuzzy blanket and … Continue reading Is it a Kitsune?

Immortality Without Creativity

Facebook, as it would turn out, has other uses than obsessing over peoples' timelines.  The illustrator of Margaret Rogerson's An Enchantment of Ravens, Charlie Bowater, creates fan art for the Throne of Glass series.  I've seen dozens of her works and I get quite excited when I see a new project of hers.  When I … Continue reading Immortality Without Creativity
