My feelings are somewhat mixed when it comes to this book and I am still trying to figure out what I think about everything. There were things that I really liked about the story and I was very eager to find out who was really behind the murders, both in the past and the present. […]

This was fantastic! I am a huge fan of Kelley Armstrong’s writing and the characters featured in the Rockton/Haven’s Rock series hold a special place in my heart. I know this is listed as the second book in the Haven’s Rock series, but that series is just a continuation of the Rockton series, so I […]

I had a great time with this one! Murder seems to be following Ernest – this time the bodies are piling up on a train! Ernest is part of a mystery writer festival aboard the Ghan and we are introduced to a quirky group of characters early on. It didn’t take long before I was […]

This was a fantastic book! I have wanted to read S.T. Gibson’s work for a while and am so glad that I picked up this book. I am a sucker for dark academia and when you add vampires to the mix, this book became a must-read. Once I started reading this book, I didn’t want […]

This was good! When I saw comparisons to The Bird Box, I was a bit worried since I was not a big fan of that book but this one worked well for me. I couldn’t imagine what it would have been like to live in the world these characters must navigate. I didn’t want to stop […]

This was a powerful book! It took me a long time to read this one, not because it was bad, but because I had an idea where the story was going and I knew that it would be painful to read. I thought it was an important story and I really felt for Tessa. Readers […]

I adored this book! I was very excited when I heard that Ali Hazelwood was writing a Vampyre/Werewolf book. Let’s just say, I had incredibly high expectations. I tend to enjoy paranormal romances so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one and I think I might have squealed a bit when it […]

This was excellent! I really liked all of the main characters and was fully invested in the outcome of this story. Jude, Zara, and Emer each had a lot at stake and I thought that they made a great team. The magic of the story was unique and I loved the fact that I never […]

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 […]
