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

ARC Review: “Murder is a Must,” by Marty Wingate

I don't know about anyone else, but I am having some major Sunday scaries right now. Tomorrow, I start a new job. It is the first "first day" I have had in years, and it is a remarkably different experience because of COVID. To combat the nervous energy by lining up all of my cozy … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder is a Must,” by Marty Wingate

ARC Review: “Murder at an Irish Christmas,” by Carlene O’Connor

Ho ho ho, merry... September? While I am unsure of the timing in publishing Carlene O'Connor's sixth Irish Village Mystery book, Murder at an Irish Christmas (due to be published this October), I don't mind at all because I love this series so much! Thank you, Netgalley and Kensington Books for this awesome opportunity! From … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder at an Irish Christmas,” by Carlene O’Connor

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

ARC Review: “The Archive of the Forgotten,” by A.J. Hackwith

Hi all, and sorry for my absence! I went to upstate New York to visit family and get some needed R&R. It also inspired me to finish three (!) books while resting, so I am almost caught up on my reading goals. One of the books I got to finish was The Archive of the … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Archive of the Forgotten,” by A.J. Hackwith

ARC Review: “Ordinary Miracles” by Martyn Carey

Good morning, all! I am giving a fair warning up top that, despite being super excited about receiving this ARC from Netgalley and Matador, Ordinary Miracles fell flat for me, in more ways than one. I generally dislike giving bad reviews because I feel that one person's opinion shouldn't inform the decision of other people's readership, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Ordinary Miracles” by Martyn Carey

ARC Review: “A Killing Frost,” by Seanan McGuire

Hey all! I was ridiculously, incredulously happy and grateful to receive this ARC from Netgalley and DAW since Seanan McGuire is one of my favorite UA authors out there right now, and the October Daye series is on my top three series. I have requested quite a few Seanan McGuire books in the past, but … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Killing Frost,” by Seanan McGuire

ARC Review: “A Wolf for a Spell,” by Karah Sutton

I was so excited to receive this ARC from Netgalley and Random House Children's because it has so many things that I love: Russian mythology, an animal narrator, and a spooky forest. One of my favorite ARCS I've ever gotten from Netgalley was Bear and the Nightingale, a YA historical fantasy based in Russia. A Wolf for … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Wolf for a Spell,” by Karah Sutton

ARC Review: “The Gentleman and the Thief,” by Sarah Eden

Hello, all! I am thrilled to have gotten the chance to review Sarah Eden's new book The Gentleman and the Thief, second in the Proper Romance Victorian series. I reviewed the first book, Lady and the Highwayman, back in April and can honestly most of my (minor) issues with the first book have been resolved in this one. … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Gentleman and the Thief,” by Sarah Eden
