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 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

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

Book Review: “Hallowe’en Party,” by Agatha Christie

Phew, what a week. It took me forever to finish Hallowe'een Party, partly because it was a bit disappointing and partly because, I am happy to announce, I am starting a new job next week. So last week was a veritable shitshow of tying up loose ends and saying goodbye to beloved coworkers from afar, … Continue reading Book Review: “Hallowe’en Party,” by Agatha Christie

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
