Blog Tour Review + GIVEAWAY: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

August 8, 2016 4 Comments Regina

Don’t forget to ENTER TO WIN an awesome prize at the end of this post! Nevernight could be classified as a pop-up book because every character and detail leaps from the pages. This book has a PRESENCE albeit a sadistic one. I found myself compelled to finish Mia’s story in as few sittings as possible. When I first read Ann Rice’s Lasher series at the tender age of ADULT, I would hide the books in […]

A fantastic and fun middle-grade fantasy. The Secrets of Solace will inspire those who read it to observe the world around them with curious and magical minds.  I wish I would have reviewed this book before Easter so I could have shared this piece of advice: This is the PERFECT book to add to your child’s or favorite friend’s Easter Basket. It’s such a fun book about finding cultural treasures and preserving them. It’s also […]

She now writes about remarkable women in history who dared to defy powerful men. – See more at: http://marcijefferson.com/#sthash.JK0bvgtM.dpuf Marci Jefferson’s debut novel Girl on the Golden Coin caught my eye earlier this year and after reading it, I had some pressing questions about her mental state. I thought on them for a while and considered […]

Flappers, Flasks and Foul Play ( A Jazz Age Mystery #1) by Ellen Mansoor Collier

  I discovered Ellen Mansoor Collier’s Jazz Age Mystery series while doing some Historical research of my own, and by God, I feel like I struck gold, babies! GOLD! We’ve all read the 1920s Historical Fiction set in New York, Chicago, Paris, New Orléans, but I never would have thought about experiencing the Jazz Age via Galveston, Texas until I read Flappers Flasks, and Foul Play. To be honest (I admit with my head hung […]

It’s only been six months since the lovely Meredith from Meredith and Jennifer’s Musings introduced me to the first The Academy series (now known as The Ghost Bird series), but I feel like I’ve been in love with the Academy boys since, like, FOREVER. Drop of Doubt, book 5 in the series, was released earlier this month and C.L. Stone is introducing a new Academy series on February 26 titled The Scarab Beetle series. Thief […]

ARC Review+GIVEAWAY: The Weight of Words by Georgina Guthrie

ARC Review+GIVEAWAY: The Weight of Words by Georgina Guthrie

First, there was Shakespeare. Then, there was Georgina Guthrie. Sometimes you stumble upon a book that appeals to all your senses. A book that wraps itself around you, and warms you to your core like a chenille sweater during a Canadian winter. The Weight of Words is one of those books. In my mind’s eye, TWoW is leather-bound in Oxblood-red with roughly edged, cream colored pages. It’s a romantic contemporary classic that deserves to be […]
