Happy Sunday, all! I was so ridiculously excited to receive Ink and Shadows by Ellery Adams. I have read all of the Secret, Bone, and Scone Society novels, as well as most of her Books on the Bay and Book Retreat mysteries, and this is by far my favorite series out of everything she has … Continue reading ARC Review: “Ink and Shadows,” by Ellery Adams

ARC Review: “The Dark Archive,” by Genevieve Cogman

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate, and good holiday cheer and health to all who don't! I am sorry for my prolonged absences - I hate being a broken record, but my new job has made it so that reading is my only source of pleasure. One of the most exciting things about this month … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Dark Archive,” by Genevieve Cogman

Book Review: “Dead-End Detective,” by Amanda Flower

Hello, all! I am so ridiculously happy to be reviewing Dead-End Detective for multiple reasons: I received the ARC from Netgalley and Hallmark Publishing, I am obsessed with Hallmark Mystery Movies, and my new job is killing me so much that this is the only book I have finished in ages. It helped that this … Continue reading Book Review: “Dead-End Detective,” by Amanda Flower

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. I am partly to blame - switching jobs, planning a wedding, and other life things have gotten … Continue reading Book Review: “Murder on Cold Street,” by Sherry Thomas

Book Review: “One for the Books,” by Jenn McKinlay

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. October is the month before my birthday, and I live for … Continue reading October TBR (or maybe a wishlist)

WWW Wednesday – September 30, 2020

Wednesday, at the last day of September. It feels like October already, all Trader Joes pumpkin ravioli (it is that good) and spiced apple cider. And my favorite challenge of them all, WWW Wednesday. The WWW Wednesday meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and is a great way to do … Continue reading WWW Wednesday – September 30, 2020

Banned Books Week

Apologies for the rare double post, but I have to acknowledge Banned Book Week. Banned Book Week, which started yesterday, celebrates the freedom to read whatever you choose, and have access to all writings despite popularity, perceived vulgarity, or ideology of a given place. It is incredibly important that books are freely accessible despite how … Continue reading Banned Books Week

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
