ARC Review: “Wild Sign,” by Patricia Briggs

I am, predictably, late - and shame on me too! Patricia Briggs is by far one of my favorite UA writers, and when I won Wild Sign from Netgalley and Berkley Publishing, I was thrilled! A little too thrilled, perhaps, since I finished Wild Sign at least a month before it came out. And now, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Wild Sign,” by Patricia Briggs

ARC Review: “The Queen’s Weapons,” by Anne Bishop

I have been waiting for this moment for months: the moment The Queen's Weapons was released. As soon as I signed off of work tonight, I immediately began plotting (heh) my review. I had the distinct honor and pleasure of receiving this ARC (thank you, Netgalley and Ace!), and it gave me the kick in … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Queen’s Weapons,” by Anne Bishop

Book Review: “The Awakening,” by Nora Roberts

Happy weekend, all! I am taking this opportunity to some of my "backfill" from this year - man, am I behind! But, there has been so many amazing books out this year and last, is it any surprise my reading is outpacing my reviewing?! One of the books I swore I would get around to … Continue reading Book Review: “The Awakening,” by Nora Roberts

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.

ARC Review: “The Vanishing at Loxby Manor,” by Abigail Wilson

Hello all! I am officially only one book behind on my ARCs! I had the distinct pleasure and honor of receiving Abigail Wilson's The Vanishing at Loxby Manor from Netgalley and Thomas Nelson Fiction and I was biting at the bit to read it ever since!

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

Book Review: “Blood Heir,” by Ilona Andrews

So, here's the story. One of my drop dead, all time favorite urban fantasy authors, Ilona Andrews, wrote self-published book. They (Ilona Andrews is a pseudonym for a husband/wife writing duo) killed it. Blood Heir takes place almost a decade after the Kate Daniels series and follows Julie, aka Aurelia Ryder, as she follows her … Continue reading Book Review: “Blood Heir,” by Ilona Andrews

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To

Happy Tuesday, all! I am happy to have a little bit of time tonight to focus on me, and I decided to contemplate my next steps. One really cool bookish meme I have been seeing is Top Ten Tuesday, and this week seems perfect. Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To

Book Review: “Dark Archives,” by Megan Rosenbloom

Wishing you all a contemplative and family-filled Martin Luther King Day. On the one hand, I am thrilled to have the day off from a stressful job, but on the other, a price was paid. Martin Luther King Jr. has all new significance in a year of division like this, and I hope you all … Continue reading Book Review: “Dark Archives,” by Megan Rosenbloom
