Book Review: “Murder on Cold Street,” by Sherry Thomas

It has been way too long since I have written a real review. After promising myself not to get into a slump, I lingered while reading Murder on Cold Street and took a full week to finish it.

Book Review: “The Orphan of Cemetery Hill,” by Hester Fox

I am very delinquent on this review - this week has been hectic, since I am changing jobs in a couple of weeks and needed to get affairs in order. As such, I read The Orphan of Cemetery Hill in almost no time, but took almost a week to review it. This is my first … Continue reading Book Review: “The Orphan of Cemetery Hill,” by Hester Fox

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.
