I thought that this book was incredibly well done! I can be a bit of a mood reader and decided to pick this one up when I was in the mood for a bit of horror. I was also hoping for something a little different, and I think this book fits that description. I know […]

I liked this book but it wasn’t perfect. I liked Niamh and Kit and wanted to see things work out for them. I thought that Niamh’s ability to magically weave emotions and memories into the clothes that she makes was incredibly interesting and I really would have liked to learn more about it, and the […]

I enjoyed this one! I am a sucker for dark academia so I was very excited to give this book a try. I loved the gothic feel of the story and liked Corvina right away. It took me a minute to warm up to Vad but I did end up liking his character as well. […]

This was a fun romance! I tend to be drawn to books that involve books. I have read quite a few books set in bookstores but I think this was the first book that featured bookbinding as well, which I found very interesting. This story grabbed me right away, and I wanted to read it […]

I enjoyed this book! I was able to guess quite a few of the twists but that didn’t hinder my enjoyment. I couldn’t wait to see if my predictions were accurate or if the story would take another unexpected twist. Thankfully, I was surprised a few times throughout the story. I found this page-turner to […]

I really enjoyed this book! I went into this book without knowing what to expect but I am so glad that I decided to take a chance on it. I believe this is one of those stories that is best to go into as blindly as possible, so I will avoid anything that could be […]

This was really good! I have heard a lot about this author during the past couple of years and have wanted to give his books a try, so I was excited to pick this one up. I was almost instantly drawn into this story as it was told to us by our narrator, Elliot. I […]
