ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

Hello all! What a week. I have been cramming at work and cramming my ARCs, two of which are out next week! Little Black Book is from one of my favorite cozy series, Kate Carlisle's Bibliophile Mystery series. At number 15, this series is still fun, albeit with some minor quirks. But would can't love … Continue reading ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

ARC Review: “The Bookshop of Second Chances,” by Jackie Fraser

Happy Saturday, all! Wishing everyone in the U.S. a relaxing long weekend, and a contemplative Memorial Day. It is raining this whole weekend where I am, which on the one hand is a major bummer for what the first week of "summer" should be, is great for my reading! It also gives me a great … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Bookshop of Second Chances,” by Jackie Fraser

ARC Review: “Book of Love,” by Erin Satie

Happy Tuesday, all! I am thoroughly wiped out, but man am I behind on my ARCs. And it is a crying shame, because Book of Love was a little gem of an historical romance. Not all my cup of tea, but light, fun, and a hint of sexy. So without further ado... From the Publisher: … Continue reading ARC Review: “Book of Love,” by Erin Satie

ARC Review: “Hope Between the Pages,” by Pepper Basham

Happy Friday, all! This is the last Friday of my vacation, and while I am sad to see it go, I definitely feel like I got the rest I needed. My "hit count" for books read during vacation is up to four books this week, and I have two more good reading days left. One … Continue reading ARC Review: “Hope Between the Pages,” by Pepper Basham

Book Review: “Calculated Risks,” by Seanan McGuire

Hello all! Is this what vacation feels like?! I forgot the weird exhilaration of being off from work for any length of time. I am, in a word, loving it. For this week, I plan on reviewing so many books that have been sitting in the "Read" pile, unreviewed and seemingly unloved. Calculated Risks, book … Continue reading Book Review: “Calculated Risks,” by Seanan McGuire

Book Review: “The Mystery of Mrs. Christie,” by Marie Benedict

Hello all, and happiest of Saturdays! Today was my last day of work before a nice week-long vacation, and MAN do I need it. I can't wait to use this break to get back into blogging about my favorite thing: Amazing books. What better day to start then today? I bring you The Mystery of … Continue reading Book Review: “The Mystery of Mrs. Christie,” by Marie Benedict

Book Review: “The Queen’s Bargain,” by Anne Bishop

Happy Thursday, all! What a week, am I right?! I received the ARC for The Queen's Weapons recently, and since it comes out March 9, I know it was time to get off my butt and read book one. I have been semi-avoiding The Queen's Bargain for a while now - this came in the … Continue reading Book Review: “The Queen’s Bargain,” by Anne Bishop

ARC Review: “A Side of Murder,” by Amy Pershing

Hello all, and happy weekend! I had the pleasure of reading Amy Pershing's new series, A Cape Cod Foodie Mystery, with the first book being A Side of Murder. Thank you, Netgalley and Berkley Books, for this opportunity! A light cozy is exactly what I needed. From the Publisher: A food writer must investigate the … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Side of Murder,” by Amy Pershing

ARC Review: “The Ruthless Lady’s Guide to Wizardry,” by C. M. Waggoner

Hello, all! Welcome to another week of "Sam is late on her ARC reading." I received The Ruthless Lady's Guide to Wizardry from Netgalley and Berkley Publishing a little before the publication date and flew through it as quick as I could, but missed the publishing date by two weeks (so go order your copy … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Ruthless Lady’s Guide to Wizardry,” by C. M. Waggoner

ARC Review: “Premeditated Mortar,” by Kate Carlisle

Hi all, and sorry I have been absent! My new job is kicking my butt (in a good way, but still a lot of work), and my reading has fallen to the wayside. It is only week one, so hopefully I will get over the growing pains soon. I could not neglect my ARCs, however, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Premeditated Mortar,” by Kate Carlisle
