Book Review: “Murder on Cold Street,” by Sherry Thomas

It has been way too long since I have written a real review. After promising myself not to get into a slump, I lingered while reading Murder on Cold Street and took a full week to finish it. I am partly to blame - switching jobs, planning a wedding, and other life things have gotten … Continue reading Book Review: “Murder on Cold Street,” by Sherry Thomas

Book Review: “The Orphan of Cemetery Hill,” by Hester Fox

I am very delinquent on this review - this week has been hectic, since I am changing jobs in a couple of weeks and needed to get affairs in order. As such, I read The Orphan of Cemetery Hill in almost no time, but took almost a week to review it. This is my first … Continue reading Book Review: “The Orphan of Cemetery Hill,” by Hester Fox

Book Review: “The Left-Handed Booksellers of London,” by Garth Nix

I was so so pleased to finally bang down my ARC pile and get to read The Left-Handed Booksellers of London. Garth Nix played a massive part in my life as a middle grade and YA reader - his Abhorsen series brought me life. I even got to write about it for my senior thesis … Continue reading Book Review: “The Left-Handed Booksellers of London,” by Garth Nix

Book Review: “One for the Books,” by Jenn McKinlay

This is going to be a fairly short review, because One for the Books is book 11 in the Library Lover's Series. It is absolutely a series that needs to be read in order, so definitely go check out book 1, Books Can Be Deceiving, if you think you will like this series!

ARC Review: “The Midnight Bargain,” by C.L. Polk

I had the very unexpected pleasure of receiving The Midnight Bargain weeks after requesting it, so I dropped my regular TBR to finish this before its release date of October 13.

Book Review: “Mums and Mayhem,” by Amanda Flower

Another day, another Scottish cozy mystery. I have no shame. Mums and Mayhem is the third in the Magical Garden Mystery series, and the sense of presence has only gotten better.

Book Review: “Hooked on Ewe,” by Hannah Reed

Ah,another day, another cozy mystery set in Scotland. Hooked on Ewe is the sequel to Off Kilter, the first book by Hannah Reed set in the Scottish Highlands.

It is also funny, because … Continue reading Book Review: “Hooked on Ewe,” by Hannah Reed

ARC Review: “On Borrowed Crime,” by Kate Young

Has anyone ever read a book and had such a vastly different opinion of it than other people, you wonder if you even read the same book? That was me with On Borrowed Crime by Kate Young. I really did not like this, and my ARC e-copy was so poorly formatted I almost didn't get … Continue reading ARC Review: “On Borrowed Crime,” by Kate Young
