ARC Review: “Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries” by Heather Fawcett

Happy 2023! It is one week into the new year, and I love starting it off right with an on time ARC! Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries by Heather Fawcett was one of my favorite ARCs last year (so much that I couldn't wait to 2023 to read it!), and I can't wait to receive … Continue reading ARC Review: “Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries” by Heather Fawcett

Book Review: “The Bachelor and the Bride,” by Sarah M. Eden

Merriest of holidays to all who celebrated this week, and wishing everyone a healthy, safe, and quiet (at least, that's what I need!) new year. I finished my 2022 reading goal number (60!) as of October, and ever since, reading has been pure gravy. On the one hand, I love challenges, and I have learned … Continue reading Book Review: “The Bachelor and the Bride,” by Sarah M. Eden

ARC Review: “Witcha Gonna Do?” by Avery Flynn

Hey witches! I have discovered my new favorite genre of the year: witchy smut romance. It makes perfect sense really - the advent and current modernization of the romance genre, combined with witches (since general "paranormal" romance had its heyday in the mid-2000s) makes for refreshingly modern, sexy, fun romances that are female forward. Avery … Continue reading ARC Review: “Witcha Gonna Do?” by Avery Flynn

ARC Review: “Soul Taken,” by Patricia Briggs

Happy (too many days after) release day to all Mercy Thompson fans! I received the ARC for "Soul Taken," book thirteen in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, and I was over the moon (thank you, Netgalley and Berkley!). The Mercy Thompson series is one of my favorite urban fantasy series, and book one … Continue reading ARC Review: “Soul Taken,” by Patricia Briggs

ARC Review: “The Vanishing Type,” by Ellery Adams

Hello all, and welcome to today's issue of "late ARCs." Up today is the newest Secret, Book and Scone Society installation, The Vanishing Type by Ellery Adams. Ellery Adams is a queen in the cozy mystery sphere, and this is by far my favorite series by her. It features a book store, baked goods, best … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Vanishing Type,” by Ellery Adams

ARC Review: “How to Book a Murder,” by Cynthia Kuhn

Another day, another late ARC. However, How to Book a Murder by Cynthia Kuhn was worth the wait, and I loved reading this Halloween-themed cozy in the heat of summer when I need to promise of fall spookies. So thank you, Netgalley and Crooked Lane Books for another delightful read! From the Publisher: To help … Continue reading ARC Review: “How to Book a Murder,” by Cynthia Kuhn

ARC Review: “Death by Beach Read,” by Eva Gates

Ah, the solstice approaches. The longest day of the year, the beginning of summer, and a most sacred day. As the solstice approaches, I try to be kinder to myself. This year, I have been a bad blogger. I have been sporadic and have read books that remain unreviewed and never took the time to … Continue reading ARC Review: “Death by Beach Read,” by Eva Gates

ARC Review: “The Burning Pages,” by Paige Shelton

Another day, another *slightly* late ARC review. I read Paige Shelton's newest installation of the Scottish Bookshop Mystery series, The Burning Pages, (book 7!) the minute I received the ARC... which was way too early. I ended up having to reread my favorite parts just for this review. I have had the pleasure of reviewing … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Burning Pages,” by Paige Shelton

ARC Review: “Meet Me in the Margins,” by Melissa Ferguson

Happy March, all! March is not what I would call my favorite month - too many nuances to Northeast weather - but I am excited to start a new month of reading and was even more excited to receive Meet Me in the Margins by Melissa Ferguson as a late ARC (thank you, Netgalley and … Continue reading ARC Review: “Meet Me in the Margins,” by Melissa Ferguson

Book Review: “The Librarian Always Rings Twice,” by Marty Wingate

It has been a wonderful weekend. I finished my January Wrap Up this weekend, which inspired me to back-review some books I read last month. The Librarian Always Rings Twice is book three in the First Edition Library Mystery series, which has one of the most fun premises of any bookish cozy series: a librarian … Continue reading Book Review: “The Librarian Always Rings Twice,” by Marty Wingate
