Sunday Street Team // Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Welcome to my first Sunday Street Team post! I was beyond excited to participate in the tour for Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh. Check out my review of the book! My Thoughts: As a self proclaimed cover snob, I have no qualms admitting that this cover caught my eye. It promises a chilling, eerie read and guess what? The pages within delivered! I love a good small town […]

Praise for Jennifer McQuiston and THE PERKS OF LOVING A SCOUNDREL: “McQuiston’s third Seduction Diaries novel is to be commended for its complex and unusual plot and for featuring characters the reader comes to care for. A surprising, readable story about healing, forgiveness, and trust.”   — Kirkus “The story is equal parts mystery and romance, and just when readers begin to feel cheated, the twists and turns navigate to a […]

A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

My Thoughts: I’ve been in a rut when it comes to Fantasy novels lately – simply because I just haven’t been reading many these days. I had pretty high expectations heading into A Shadow Bright and Burning, and I’m happy to say it didn’t disappoint. A mix of magical fantasy, political intrigue and monsters in Victorian London, this book had a lot going for it. There’s an interesting magic caste; with Witches, Sorcerers and […]

Heartbreaking & Beautiful // The Girl from The Savoy by Hazel Gaynor

My Thoughts: How many books have you picked up and fell in love with at the very start? For me, The Girl from the Savoy is one of them. Two women. Different backgrounds, same dream. What happens when their lives intertwine, and how much of what you love and hold dear are you willing to give up while chasing those dreams? The Girl from the Savoy has so many great things […]

Emotionally Wrecking // Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

My Thoughts: I first came across Salt to the Sea while at the SE-YA festival in March. Ms. Sepetys was there, and while I didn’t get a chance to meet her, or buy one of her books, there were a lot of people standing around talking about them. There were many other times this book kept popping up everywhere but when it was picked as the Book of the Month for […]

Mini Audio Reviews: Jackaby and Shadowshaper

My Take: I love this cover. Jackaby has been on my TBR pile for AGES. I love historical paranormal and add in the “Sherlock” aspect and I was SOLD. When I saw it available on audio at the library, I was extremely excited to dive into this world! And the wait was totally worth it. I love the characters. Jackaby is so fun and eccentric! I love his take on the […]

ARC Review | This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee

My Take: Classics aren’t really my thing, so while yes, I know the generalized story of Frankenstein (because it’s like I live under a rock) I haven’t actually read the book. Still, when this one landed on my door step, I was excited to read it because the whole idea behind it intrigued me. And I loved every minute of it. There many, many aspects of This Monstrous Thing that […]
