This is going to be a fairly short review, because One for the Books is book 11 in the Library Lover's Series. It is absolutely a series that needs to be read in order, so definitely go check out book 1, Books Can Be Deceiving, if you think you will like this series! From the … Continue reading Book Review: “One for the Books,” by Jenn McKinlay

October TBR (or maybe a wishlist)

This is probably not comprehensive, or even probably accurate. This month is going to be very hectic for me from some changes in my personal life (more to come, all good things), but man do I want to read everything, particularly fun spooky stuff.

Book Review: “Hooked on Ewe,” by Hannah Reed

Ah,another day, another cozy mystery set in Scotland. Hooked on Ewe is the sequel to Off Kilter, the first book by Hannah Reed set in the Scottish Highlands.

It is also funny, because … Continue reading Book Review: “Hooked on Ewe,” by Hannah Reed

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
