“Tea & Treachery (Tea by the Sea Mysteries #1)” by: Vicki Delany

Confession time: I LOVE the writing style of Vicki Delany. She manages to write in such a comforting way and yes I know she writes cozy mysteries, but not ALL cozy mysteries feel like hers do. I find them extremely comforting. I adored her Sherlock Bookshop series and when I saw she had a new series coming out, oh man I did a happy dance when my request to review […]

“Mini Chibi Art Class: A Complete Course in Drawing Cuties and Beasties” by: Yoai

One of the hobbies I want to get into this year is doodling and drawing. I used to doodle all the time when I was younger and it has been years since I picked up the proverbial shading pens. This book looked like a kawaii spark to rekindle that old flame. The introduction was well written and very much encouraged trial and error. Many tools were recommended, however the author […]

“Break Your Glass Slippers” by: Amanda Lovelace

I inhaled this in one sitting. This tends to happen when I read work by Lovelace. I related to so much of what she says. I found different lines we are all familiar with twisted and turned creatively. I found song lyrics expanded to fit the theme. I found myself nodding along at aspects presented concerning my first ever relationship as well as inspiration for my career now. Wow. Incredible. […]

“The Girl from Widow Hills” by: Megan Miranda

This was even more twisty than her previous work which I adored when I reviewed it last year! (See The Last House Guest review here) Her writing and way of crafting a story just keeps getting better and better! The threads that all wound and the questions being raised while getting answers and the speculations…oh man. What a wild ride!!!! I didn’t guess until a page or two before the […]

“You Deserve It” by: Josh Wagner

I have been on a nonfiction, better ones-self kick lately when it comes to reading. When I was able to aquire the e-arc from Netgalley on this one I was very excited to jump straight in! There were some very good takeaways here. Especially worth reading for anyone struggling with a sense of not deserving good things in their lives…and who doesn’t have that thought? Sometimes we all struggle to […]

“The Last House Guest” by: Megan Miranda

I read All the Missing Girls last year (See Review Here) and enjoyed the writing style in that everything was told backward. In this new thriller by Megan Miranda we are following local girl Avery in the aftermath of the death of her best friend in the seaside town she lives and works in. While this story isn’t told with the same format, we do have a story told out […]

“Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance” by: Ruth Emmie Lang

My initial first response in reading this book was sheer childlike glee and excitement. It has been a LONG time since I dove into a Fantasy novel, especially by a new author, and loved every moment of it. There were snippets here that reminded me a bit of the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. I feel like especially the elements toward the end where a certain young character is introduced […]

“These Violent Delights” by Victoria Namkung

The reason I requested this one I will admit was all due to the title. “These violent delights have violent ends” was a quote used on the HBO show “Westworld” and hubby and I *LOVE* that show. The quote is explained around the 70% mark as being a quote from Romeo and Juliet to mean that the relationship is going to doom both of them and that they will not […]

“Bonfire” by: Krysten Ritter

Krysten Ritter may be a familiar name to you. She was an actress in Veronica Mars, Breaking Bad, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, and Jessica Jones. I was excited to get a chance to review her debut novel. The premise reminded me of Veronica Mars in that we have a small town filled with cover-ups and secrets, as well as a female lead that is seeking out the […]

“Quackery: A Brief History of the Worst Ways to Cure Everything”: by Lydia Kang & Nate Pedersen

The information in this one is mind-blowing. It took quite a long time (for me) to finish this one, but it is probably the most quoted book I have read so far, maybe ever. I shared many of the facts and stories with many different friends in casual conversations because I found this entire tome completely fascinating (and the best way to know you truly have a concept/idea down is […]
