The Pvritan by Birgitte Mär..

The Pvritan by Birgitte Märgen

CW: The Pvritan contains violence, gore, murder, language, animal death, abuse, suicide, and religion The Pvritan Plot I thought The Pvritan’s plot was both unique and standard. Standard in the sense that it was a typical murder mystery with police detectives featuring as the main characters. Unique in that it used gruesome imagery for the […]

Atropos by John Japuntich

Atropos by John Japuntich

I chose this book through Reedsy Discovery based solely on the description. I loved the thought of a viral component to gaining immortality as well as becoming infertile. I was curious to see how the world would react to something like that. I wasn’t disappointed. The Virus So what we know about the virus in […]

Donn’s Hill by Caryn L..

Donn’s Hill by Caryn Larrinaga

Donn’s Hill is a horror/mystery/thriller that involves the paranormal. As such, I knew I had to give it a shot. I wasn’t disappointed. Donn’s Hill is Caryn Larrinaga’s debut novel. As such, it does suffer a bit from “first book syndrome” but in all honesty, it doesn’t really detract from the story. This one needs […]

Witches Protection Program b..

Witches Protection Program by Michael Phillip Cash

It took me a long time to even start this book. I think I added it to my NetGalley queue in 2015, but I didn’t start it until the other day. I’m not sure why it took me so long, but it did. I have to say, Witches Protection Program isn’t a horrible book. It’s […]

Blueblood by Matthew Iden

Blueblood by Matthew Iden

This book spent far too long on my Netgalley TBR pile. I’m not even joking. I added it to the TBR pile back in 2015 – almost 4 years ago. I honestly shouldn’t have waited so long to read this book. Blueblood is the second book in the Marty Singer series. The good thing is […]

Deadly News by Jody Holford

Deadly News by Jody Holford

Cozy mysteries are a relatively new found love of mine. Deadly News by Jody Holford fits the bill perfectly. A murder in a sleepy Oregon town and a complete mystery, with twists that aren’t telegraphed six chapters before they happen, are what you’ll find with this book. Quaint touches, such as referring to a Coke […]

Book Review: A Witchy Busine..

Book Review: A Witchy Business by Danica Britton

I chose to read A Witchy Business because I like books about witches and because, well, it said it was a cozy mystery and I’ve been trying to figure out exactly what a cozy mystery actually is. Well, I finally figured out that cozy mysteries are basically mysteries with a little bit of romance sprinkled […]

Book Review: Destiny’s..

Book Review: Destiny’s a Witch by Lucy May

Destiny’s a Witch is a cute, cozy, kitschy mystery involving a town full of witches, warlocks, and humans. Throw in a bit of romance and you have this adorable story. This is what a cute, cozy mystery should be. I chose to read this book based on two things – the cute cover and the […]

Dark Rhapsody by Helaine Mar..

Dark Rhapsody by Helaine Mario

I wanted to like Dark Rhapsody – and I did… at first. But then, I just lost interest. It wasn’t that it switched between character points of view because that’s normal and I don’t have a problem with it. It also wasn’t that the book was lacking in action, because the book isn’t. It’s got […]

Camino Island by John Grisha..

Camino Island by John Grisham

While I kind of panned the last John Grisham novel I’d read, it was more because while it involved law and lawyers, it wasn’t what I was expecting. This novel was a departure from what I recall John Grisham doing previously, but this novel worked. It really did work. The character development wasn’t completely there, […]
