Book Review: Gleanings by Neal Shusterman

A couple of years ago, I read and reviewed the Arc of a Scythe trilogy by Neal Shusterman. I absolutely loved the trilogy and gave it high marks here on the blog. Well, the other day as I was trolling through NetGalley, I noticed a new book by Neal Shusterman and the cover reminded me […]

Book Review: The Herbivorous..

Book Review: The Herbivorous Butcher Cookbook by Aubry Walch and Kale Walch

For those who don’t know, I’m a vegetarian. I tend to eat quite a bit of vegan food because if it’s vegan, then I know I can eat it. I’m always looking for good substitutes for some of my old favorite dishes – like roast beef and pepperoni pizza. Finding The Herbivorous Butcher Cookbook gives […]

Book Review: What Once Was Mine by Liz Braswell

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know that I absolutely LOVE Disney’s Twisted Tales. I just love how they take a beloved story and turn it around, giving it a new life. So when I saw What Once Was Mine on NetGalley, I knew I had to request it. I […]

Book Review: The Vow by Debbie Howells

After a few false starts, I finally got around to actually reading The Vow by Debbie Howells. When I say I devoured the book, I’m not kidding. I actually stayed up until almost 5:30AM to finish the book. That’s how engrossed in the story I was. I won’t lie, the book starts out a little […]

Book Review: All the Dark Pl..

Book Review: All the Dark Places by Terri Parlato

I recently was given the opportunity by Kensington Publishing Corporation, via NetGalley, to read the debut thriller from Terri Parlato, All the Dark Places. I have to say, this debut novel is amazing. First, we have our characters. They’re well thought out, well planned, and very well written. Do we get all of the info […]


Audiobook Review: Long Live ..

Audiobook Review: Long Live the Pumpkin Queen by Shea Ernshaw

Most people probably don’t know this, because I don’t make it as obvious as I *could*, but I am a huge fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas. It is easily my favorite movie of all time. So when I see there are “sequels” to it, I have to try my best to read them. Or […]

Book Review: The Bone Code b..

Book Review: The Bone Code by Kathy Reichs

Trigger Warnings: Murder, Child Murder, Gore, Descriptions of Dead Bodies, Animal Cruelty, Attempted Murder, Mentions of DNA modification and vaccines. In the early 2000s, I fell in love with a TV show called Bones. I would later discover that the TV show was loosely based on the Temperance Brennan series of books by Kathy Reichs. […]


Book Review: Influencer Isla..

Book Review: Influencer Island by Kyle Rutkin

Trigger Warnings: Murder, Gore, Sexual Assault, Drugs The premise of this book had me wanting to read it and so when I was granted an eARC I was thrilled. However, the book simply didn’t live up to expectations. First, none of the characters are in any way memorable. The only things I really remember about […]

Book Review: Small Favors by Erin A. Craig

Trigger Warnings: Murder, Fire, Arson, Gore, Religious Fervor, Monsters, Animal Death I’ve had Small Favors in my TBR for well over a year. I actually own a signed hardcover copy of the book that I’d pre-ordered back before it came out. Now the book is out in paperback and I’m just now getting around to […]

Book Review: When Darkness Falls by Kathleen Harryman

Trigger Warnings: Sexual Abuse, Sexual Abuse of a Child, Gore, Murder, Forced Suicide, Mental Health Related Illness/Diagnosis. When I picked up When Darkness Falls by Kathleen Harryman through NetGalley, I wasn’t expecting that the book had already come out in 2017 and had a sequel. While I haven’t yet read the sequel, I am going […]


Book Review: Duplicity by Sh..

Book Review: Duplicity by Shawn Wilson

I’m going to be quite honest – this review will be short. I’ve been trying to keep to using the CAWPILE headings for my reviews, but for this book, I think I’m just going to keep it short and sweet. Duplicity is a decent book – it earned 3 stars, but it’s honestly nothing to […]

Book Review: The Violent Season by Sara Walters

I’ve been sleeping on The Violent Season by Sara Walters and I have to say, I am not proud of that fact. I really am not. So let’s see why it is a bad thing that I slept on this book for so long. First, a quick trigger warning – murder, sexual assault, suicide, death, […]

Book Review: Wild is the Witch by Rachel Griffin

Last year, I was privileged to be permitted to read and review Rachel Griffin’s debut novel, The Nature of Witches. It was a 5-star read for me and so when I saw her second novel, Wild is the Witch, on NetGalley, I knew I had to request it. The problem was, it wasn’t available for […]


Book Review: Protecting His ..

Book Review: Protecting His Pregnant Partner by Leslie North

It’s been a minute since I’ve reviewed a Leslie North book and I’m not sure why because when it comes to romance books, I absolutely love hers. Like I’ve said before – not big on romance, but certain authors are must-reads for me and Leslie North is one of them. Protecting His Pregnant Partner is […]
