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 […]

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 […]

The Woman in the Photo by Mary Hogan

My Thoughts: Woman’s Fiction isn’t a genre I pick up often – for no obvious reason at all. But the ones that I have picked up lately are wonderful, and that includes this book, The Woman in the Photo. Told in dual perspectives, we get two correlating stories. The story of Elizabeth in 1889. And the story of Lee, or Elizabeth, in the present day. Both women are trying to find […]

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 […]

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 […]

Audio Book Review | A Spark Unseen by Sharon Cameron

My Take: I fell in love with the first book, A Dark Unwinding, and I was excited when I saw A Spark Unseen available on audio. Even though I was happy with where the first book left us — I wanted to check with these characters! A Spark Unseen is similar yet so much different from its predecessor. While the characters I know and love (and in some cases, loathed) are […]

Blog Tour | Ella The Slayer By A.W. Exley (Review + #Giveaway)

My Take: “We all pulled together to nurse the sick and bury the fallen. Except it wasn’t the flu. And they didn’t stay dead.” Zombies? Sign me up. Ella, The Slayer was such a fun, unique retelling of the Cinderella story many know and love. Set soon after the outbreak of the Spanish Influenza, Ella is caring for her father, taking care of her home, living with a monster of a […]
