The Cruel Prince

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black can best be summed up by a quote directly from the book: “it’s exhilarating and terrifying, like so much of Faerie.” I read this book from start to finish with my heart racing and my palms sweating, not knowing what to expect. […]

The Witch of Nightmares

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The Witch of Nightmares: Book 1 of The Trouble With Hedge Witches Series by Sarina Dorie is billed as dark fairy tales of mystery and magic. I wanted to ring in the […]

Finding Billy Battles

I was provided with a free copy of this book from Booktasters in return for my honest review. Finding Billy Battles by Ronald E. Yates is an incredibly interesting story that takes place throughout the frontier of the West in the late 1800s. It is full of action, […]

Kill The Queen

Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep is the first book in the Crown of Shards series, and I found it nothing less than amazing. I couldn’t put it down and finished it in a single day, which is no small feat since it clocked in at 443 pages. […]

A Mercy

A Mercy by Toni Morrison was a powerful read. The story was set in Maryland in 1690, during the early days of slavery. It was told from the point of view of various characters, mainly the women in the story, but a few of the male characters as […]

Criminal

This book is the perfect mix of scary, creepy, and illuminating. Karin Slaughter is a master of this genre, and consistently keeps me awake way past my bedtime reading “just one more chapter,” because I keep trying to get past the scary part, only to find out that […]
