It's finally June, halfway through the year and I think I've found my favorite fantasy book. Steel Hand, Cold Heart by Rachel Menard is a captivating read from start to finish with an immersive world and fully-fleshed characters that you can easily invest in.

To Be Your Girl – Rae Kennedy [Review]

I don't automatically pick up romance books, not for any particular reason; I think I just hadn't found anything that hooked me ever since I read the Goddess series by P.C. Cast, which was over a decade ago. But I adore Rae Kennedy, so naturally I wanted to read a couple of her books. This… Continue reading To Be Your Girl – Rae Kennedy [Review]

Sprinkle with Murder – REVIEW

This book pretty much fell into my lap. I was looking for cozy mysteries without any other requirements - just your good ol' reliable, light-hearted murder mystery, right? I did that typical "judge a book by its cover" thing that we're all guilty of. Don't even try to lie to me, there's been a book… Continue reading Sprinkle with Murder – REVIEW

The White Magic Five and Dime | Book Review

Initially, I picked up this book, The White Magic Five and Dime by Steve Hockensmith and Lisa Falco, because I was looking for something based in Arizona.
