Down the TBR Hole #11

Happy Friday, all! What a good day to clean up your TBR. I managed to remove 6 out of 10 books during my last TBR cleanup, which was a feat and a half. This week, I am feeling slightly less ambitious. A while ago, I discovered this meme, Down the TBR hole, from Confessions of … Continue reading Down the TBR Hole #11

ARC Review: “Little Bookshop of Murder” by Maggie Blackburn

Thank you, Netgalley and Crooked Lane Books, for this ARC of Maggie Blackburn's new series! What may not be apparent on my blog is that I have a secret semi-guilty pleasure for cozy mysteries. Beyond that, I love cozy mysteries that include "book people," whether it be librarians, book sellers, or book cafes. So when I … Continue reading ARC Review: “Little Bookshop of Murder” by Maggie Blackburn

Deanna Raybourn’s “A Treacherous Curse” – lucky number 3.

I received A Treacherous Curse from Penguin's First to Read program ages ago, and slacked on writing a review about it because so much went on and law school got horribly in the way. Suffice to say, I am obsessed with this series. Before I had this blog, I had the pleasure of reviewing the … Continue reading Deanna Raybourn’s “A Treacherous Curse” – lucky number 3.

Review: “A Thousand Salt Kisses” by Josie Demuth

To preface, I received A Thousand Salt Kisses by Josie Demuth as a Netgalley ARC in exchange for an honest review. I was torn between a two star or three star rating for this because the story did have good bones and an intriguing plot, but the characterization and writing were just not up to snuff. Mermen, island … Continue reading Review: “A Thousand Salt Kisses” by Josie Demuth
