The final books of the year have dropped from Book of the Month, and quite a bit earlier than anticipated! Even though I like this month’s picks, I had a hard time deciding on which ones to add to my box. In part because I have copies of 3 of then, and had already pre-ordered…

It’s the final countdown dun nununu! Or really more just my final predictions for the final BOTM box of 2022! December is always such a toss-up when it comes to BOTM picks. It is a fairly light publishing month due to the holidays and so we tend to see some very interesting choices show up…

Back in a Spell

We’re headed back to Thistle Grove in Lana Harper’s upcoming release Back in a Spell. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the witches in Thistle Grove and was so excited to get an ARC for the 3rd installment.

Shadows of Pecan Hollow

As a good Texas girl, I love books set in Texas! I’m so happy one of my favorite debut reads this year happened to be set in Texas! Shadows of Pecan Hollow is set in 1970-90s Texas, and is a wonderful story about a fierce woman and the partner-in-crime she can’t escape. This historical fiction/…
