Chick Lit, Romance| 304 pages | 10.15.2019 | St. Martin's Griffin 1 STAR I wanted to love this novel. I am a big fan of cheesy Christmas romances, Vermont, and snowy winters. The book had the right setting. It had theoretically great characters. It had the potential for a great 'we reconnected after many years'… Continue reading ARC Review – Christmas in Vermont by Anita Hughes
Middle Grade, Horror| 136 pages | 09.01.2019 | Jolly Fish Press 2 STARS First of all, I love that middle-grade horror is starting to take off and is getting the attention it deserves.

I quite… Continue reading ARC Review – Curse of the Dead-Eyed Doll by Thomas Kingsley Troupe

WILDER GIRLS YA, Contemporary Lit, Horor| 353 pages | 07.09.2019 | Delacorte Press 3.5 STARS Wilder Girls is deliciously strange and unusual.

Where does it lead… Continue reading ARC review – Wilder Girls by Rory Power

I'm going to peruse my… Continue reading Mid-event update

I'm talking about Jane Eyre and I am determined to make a good dent into it (maybe even finish it?). I have… Continue reading Hour 1 – let the fun begin!
