ARC Review: “Soul Taken,” by Patricia Briggs

Happy (too many days after) release day to all Mercy Thompson fans! I received the ARC for "Soul Taken," book thirteen in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, and I was over the moon (thank you, Netgalley and Berkley!). The Mercy Thompson series is one of my favorite urban fantasy series, and book one … Continue reading ARC Review: “Soul Taken,” by Patricia Briggs

ARC Review: “The Vanishing Type,” by Ellery Adams

Hello all, and welcome to today's issue of "late ARCs." Up today is the newest Secret, Book and Scone Society installation, The Vanishing Type by Ellery Adams. Ellery Adams is a queen in the cozy mystery sphere, and this is by far my favorite series by her. It features a book store, baked goods, best … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Vanishing Type,” by Ellery Adams

ARC Review: “How to Book a Murder,” by Cynthia Kuhn

Another day, another late ARC. However, How to Book a Murder by Cynthia Kuhn was worth the wait, and I loved reading this Halloween-themed cozy in the heat of summer when I need to promise of fall spookies. So thank you, Netgalley and Crooked Lane Books for another delightful read! From the Publisher: To help … Continue reading ARC Review: “How to Book a Murder,” by Cynthia Kuhn

ARC Review: “Death by Beach Read,” by Eva Gates

Ah, the solstice approaches. The longest day of the year, the beginning of summer, and a most sacred day. As the solstice approaches, I try to be kinder to myself. This year, I have been a bad blogger. I have been sporadic and have read books that remain unreviewed and never took the time to … Continue reading ARC Review: “Death by Beach Read,” by Eva Gates

ARC Review: “The Burning Pages,” by Paige Shelton

Another day, another *slightly* late ARC review. I read Paige Shelton's newest installation of the Scottish Bookshop Mystery series, The Burning Pages, (book 7!) the minute I received the ARC... which was way too early. I ended up having to reread my favorite parts just for this review. I have had the pleasure of reviewing … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Burning Pages,” by Paige Shelton

ARC Review: “Meet Me in the Margins,” by Melissa Ferguson

Happy March, all! March is not what I would call my favorite month - too many nuances to Northeast weather - but I am excited to start a new month of reading and was even more excited to receive Meet Me in the Margins by Melissa Ferguson as a late ARC (thank you, Netgalley and … Continue reading ARC Review: “Meet Me in the Margins,” by Melissa Ferguson

January Wrap-Up

I have been rather delinquent with my blog. It has been a rough winter, and my brain hasn't been present. However, with the new year made me make a promise to myself: Be here. Enjoy the moment. Enjoy books again. And that, at least, has been successful. I read five books in January, which doesn't … Continue reading January Wrap-Up

ARC Review: “Crimes and Covers,” by Amanda Flower

Happy Sunday, all! Another week, another *slightly* late ARC review (thank you, Netgalley and Crooked Lane Books!) but Amanda Flower is one of my favorite cozy mystery writers out right now (her Scottish magical garden series is amazing!) and I have been reading the Magical Bookshop Series for years now. Crimes and Covers is number … Continue reading ARC Review: “Crimes and Covers,” by Amanda Flower

ARC Review: “A Three Book Problem,” by Vicki Delany

Another day, another cozy mystery to snuggle up with on these cold winter nights (in New York, at least). While A Three Book Problem is set in October, it still manages to evoke the same sense of large sweaters, mulled wine, and longing stares out the window (just at leaves instead of snow). And for … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Three Book Problem,” by Vicki Delany

Book Review: “An Eggnog to Die For,” by Amy Pershing

Hello all, and a happy holiday and new year to all who celebrated! I don't have a great excuse for missing so much time between posts - between the post-wedding nonsense, my 30th birthday, job insanity, and the looming holidays, the idea of sitting and writing felt stressful, too much. However, I finally realized that … Continue reading Book Review: “An Eggnog to Die For,” by Amy Pershing
