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: “The Woman in the Library,” by Sulari Gentill

Hello happy readers! I am again late on an ARC, but feel this may work in my favor. The Woman in the Library by Sulari Gentill is an atmospheric, meta novel that has just enough creeping dread to make it a great fall read, despite its June release date. Thank you, Netgalley and Poisoned Pen … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Woman in the Library,” by Sulari Gentill

Book Review: “An Unexpected Peril,” by Deanna Raybourn

So... I have been in a bit of a slump. Blame it on the weather (what is this hellfire?!), blame it on work/wedding stress, blame it on a lackluster current book (RTC, but still not sure what the hype is for These Violent Delights...) but I have not had the inclination to sit down and … Continue reading Book Review: “An Unexpected Peril,” by Deanna Raybourn

ARC Review: “A Curious Incident,” by Vicki Delany

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I think it is safe to say that we were all sick of 2020. There are no promises for 2021, and not much will change right away, but there is definitely a consensus that 2021 can't be *as bad* as 2020. One great thing that is happening this January is A Curious … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Curious Incident,” by Vicki Delany

Book Review: “Hallowe’en Party,” by Agatha Christie

Phew, what a week. It took me forever to finish Hallowe'een Party, partly because it was a bit disappointing and partly because, I am happy to announce, I am starting a new job next week. So last week was a veritable shitshow of tying up loose ends and saying goodbye to beloved coworkers from afar, … Continue reading Book Review: “Hallowe’en Party,” by Agatha Christie

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)

Book Review: “Mums and Mayhem,” by Amanda Flower

Another day, another Scottish cozy mystery. I have no shame. Mums and Mayhem is the third in the Magical Garden Mystery series, and the sense of presence has only gotten better. When can I move to Scotland? I am so ready. From the Publisher: A famous fiddler has been kilt. A magic garden's left to … Continue reading Book Review: “Mums and Mayhem,” by Amanda Flower

WWW Wednesday – September 23, 2020

Happy Thursday! I am a full day late, huzzah! However, I simply love doing the WWW Wednesday Challenge, so take that, linear days of the week! The WWW Wednesday meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading … Continue reading WWW Wednesday – September 23, 2020

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. I wasn't in love with it, but they are fun reads and the Scottish setting has given me the happy autumn shivers. It is also funny, because … Continue reading Book Review: “Hooked on Ewe,” by Hannah Reed

Book Review: Flowers and Foul Play, by Amanda Flower

I had to pleasure to read Flowers and Foul Play after having read all of Flower's (the author's name is so fun and fitting) other series, The Magical Bookshop series. Flower is another queen of the cozy genre, and I was so excited to dive into this series. From the Publisher: Fiona Knox lost her … Continue reading Book Review: Flowers and Foul Play, by Amanda Flower
