The Nature of Witches by Rac..

The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin

Content Warning: Death When I first requested to be allowed to read The Nature of Witches, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’ve long been a fan of books that have magic in them, and if they tie that magic to witches, I’m especially intrigued. So, I was super happy to be given the chance […]

Tales from the Hinterland by..

Tales from the Hinterland by Melissa Albert

CW: Violence, Death Tales from the Hinterland is the book of fairy tales that is featured in The Hazel Wood and The Night Country. Weirdly enough, I could never seem to get into either The Hazel Wood or The Night Country. Perhaps I just needed to read the fairy tales the fueled the story. I […]

The Anti-Relationship Year by Katie Wismer

CW: Pregnancy, Pregnancy Termination, Depression Happy Book Birthday to The Anti-Relationship Year!!! Last year, I read and reviewed The Anti-Virginity Pact (TAVP) and wondered then if we would ever see a book with any of the characters from that book again. Well, this year, Katie Wismer has brought us a sequel – that can be […]

Emergency Contact by Mary H...

Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

TW: Abuse, Racism, Mommy Issues, Daddy Issues (I’m sorry it’s been a month since I listened to it, so if there are triggers I missed, I’m sorry.) Emergency Contact is the story of Penny and Sam. Neither of them is a particularly likable character. They are seriously messed up. But if I have to choose […]

Reverie by Ryan La Sala

Reverie by Ryan La Sala

When the Barnes & Noble book club chose this book for the January book club, I was a little leary. I actually had this book from NetGalley and just couldn’t get into it. I tried for months to get into the book and just couldn’t do it. But, I hate to miss a book club, […]

There’s Someone in You..

There’s Someone in Your House by Stephanie Perkins

I’ve been wanting to read There’s Someone Inside Your House since I first started hearing about it, before it came out. Back then, it was a book that had some hype to it – people were getting really cool packages for this book. I wasn’t lucky enough to receive one of the packages and eventually […]

It Won’t Be Christmas ..

It Won’t Be Christmas Without You by Beth Reekles

I admit, I’m not usually one for romance or adult fiction. I’m more of a mystery, thriller, horror, and YA person. But this book seemed like it was going to be too cute to pass up. I was right. Christmas is my second favorite holiday after Halloween. It should be – my birthday is Christmas […]

Beautiful Surrender by Prisc..

Beautiful Surrender by Priscilla West

I admit, I was kind of scratching my head because on Goodreads, this book is listed as “erotica” and it really isn’t. It’s pretty much a romance book with some sex thrown in. I’ve read far more erotic and dirty books from authors like Linda Lael Miller, trust me. This was tame compared to her […]

Again, but Better by Christi..

Again, but Better by Christine Riccio

I read this book for Barnes & Noble’s new YA Book Club. I hadn’t even heard of the book and didn’t know who the author was, although once I saw her YouTube channel name, I vaguely recognized who she was. I have to say, I wish she’d gone back and watched some of her own […]

The Wicked Deep by Shea Earn..

The Wicked Deep by Shea Earnshaw

At first I wasn’t going to finish this book. I even turned it in to the library early. I’d gotten to Chapter 5 and it was just dragging along. But something kept nagging at me that I should give it another shot, so I downloaded the Kindle version as a library check out. I’m glad […]

Bad Night Stand by Elise Far..

Bad Night Stand by Elise Farber

I’m not one much for the romance genre, even though it seems like I have quite a few in my NetGalley queue. But Bad Night Stand called to me because it seemed like it would be right up my alley. I wasn’t wrong. I loved it. And in all honesty, I’m sincerely hoping that the […]

The Gilded Cage by Lauren Sm..

The Gilded Cage by Lauren Smith

It took me a bit to get into this one, but once I did, I was hooked. I admit, I have a BDSM fetish when I read–if the fan fiction I tend to read is any indication–so any book that includes that is generally a winner with me. I have to say though, this is […]
