ARC Review: “Murder in a Teacup,” by Vicki Delany

Happy Sunday all! I finally thought that I was on top of things, only to realize an ARC I had marked for August actually came out in July! Murder in a Teacup is book two of Vicki Delany's Tea by the Sea Mystery series, and while I am a bigger fan of some of Vicki … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder in a Teacup,” by Vicki Delany

ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

Hello all! What a week. I have been cramming at work and cramming my ARCs, two of which are out next week! Little Black Book is from one of my favorite cozy series, Kate Carlisle's Bibliophile Mystery series. At number 15, this series is still fun, albeit with some minor quirks. But would can't love … Continue reading ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

ARC Review: “The Bookshop of Second Chances,” by Jackie Fraser

Happy Saturday, all! Wishing everyone in the U.S. a relaxing long weekend, and a contemplative Memorial Day. It is raining this whole weekend where I am, which on the one hand is a major bummer for what the first week of "summer" should be, is great for my reading! It also gives me a great … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Bookshop of Second Chances,” by Jackie Fraser

ARC Review: “Wild Sign,” by Patricia Briggs

I am, predictably, late - and shame on me too! Patricia Briggs is by far one of my favorite UA writers, and when I won Wild Sign from Netgalley and Berkley Publishing, I was thrilled! A little too thrilled, perhaps, since I finished Wild Sign at least a month before it came out. And now, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Wild Sign,” by Patricia Briggs

ARC Review: “Ordinary Miracles” by Martyn Carey

Good morning, all! I am giving a fair warning up top that, despite being super excited about receiving this ARC from Netgalley and Matador, Ordinary Miracles fell flat for me, in more ways than one. I generally dislike giving bad reviews because I feel that one person's opinion shouldn't inform the decision of other people's readership, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Ordinary Miracles” by Martyn Carey

ARC Review: “A Wolf for a Spell,” by Karah Sutton

I was so excited to receive this ARC from Netgalley and Random House Children's because it has so many things that I love: Russian mythology, an animal narrator, and a spooky forest. One of my favorite ARCS I've ever gotten from Netgalley was Bear and the Nightingale, a YA historical fantasy based in Russia. A Wolf for … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Wolf for a Spell,” by Karah Sutton

ARC Review: “The Gentleman and the Thief,” by Sarah Eden

Hello, all! I am thrilled to have gotten the chance to review Sarah Eden's new book The Gentleman and the Thief, second in the Proper Romance Victorian series. I reviewed the first book, Lady and the Highwayman, back in April and can honestly most of my (minor) issues with the first book have been resolved in this one. … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Gentleman and the Thief,” by Sarah Eden

ARC Review: “Shadow in the Empire of Light,” by Jane Routley

Good morning everyone! I'd like to start by thanking Netgalley and Rebellion Publishing for what was a pretty interesting ARC. I have to admit, I have put this review off for about a week, because it is hard to review a book that you wanted to like so bad, but ended up feeling disappointed. Shadow in … Continue reading ARC Review: “Shadow in the Empire of Light,” by Jane Routley

ARC Review: “A Death Long Overdue,” by Eva Gates

Hello all and happy Friday! I am so excited to review Eva Gates' new book A Death Long Overdue from her Lighthouse Library series, because this cozy has it all: A lighthouse. In a library. On a beach, with a plucky librarian for a heroine. How do we beat that?! I have been a pretty devoted … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Death Long Overdue,” by Eva Gates

ARC Review: “A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians,” by H.G. Parry

Hello all, and happy Tuesday! (Is that a thing?) I am very excited to review to have received this book from Netgalley and RedHook, since it is a beautiful blend of fantasy and historical fiction. I missed reading good fantasy! I had also preordered this book ages ago, and when I got the chance to review … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians,” by H.G. Parry
