League of Liars

This is my first book by Astrid Scholte, and I tend to really enjoy a good YA fantasy especially with unique magic systems. So when the folks from Penguin Teen asked if I wanted to read an early copy, of course I jumped at the opportunity. Part courtroom drama, part jailbreak/heist, League of Liars follows…

The School for Good Mothers

This review really pains me to write as it was one of my most anticipated for January 2022. The School for Good Mothers is being touted as a new The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s part speculative fiction, part science fiction, and really focuses on the the plight of motherhood. Especially in today’s society where everyone has…

Twenty Years Later

I am a huge fan of Charlie Donlea’s Rory Moore/Lane Phillips’ series and so I was extremely excited to get an Advanced copy of Donlea’s upcoming releases Twenty Years Later. One of my favorite things about Donlea’s writing is that characters from his series tend to make small appearances in his standalone books. It really…

Olympus, Texas

This is the epitome of a family drama, and really the entire plot revolved around the internal drama that is the Briscoe family. This story is 100% about the character’s emotional baggage and coming to terms with who they are as people. While it promises to hold quite a bit of mythology references, unless you…

The Maid

Buckle in for an unpopular opinion. Molly the maid, works at a hotel, as you guessed, it a maid. Molly loves her job as a Maid and getting to ‘return rooms to a state of perfection’ is the highlight of her day. She loves keeping things clean and her attention to detail makes her perfect…

A History of Wild Places

Alright ya’ll, I am thoroughly conflicted writing this review. On one hand it was one of my most anticipated upcoming releases and I think the story is imaginative and well written. On the other hand it takes us forever to get where we need to go, and I found myself counting pages one too many…

Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead

Finlay Donovan is coming back & this time someone has a hit out on her ex-husband. & just like in Finlay Donovan is Killing it, hilarity ensues! FINLAY DONOVAN IS KILLING IT REVIEW If you read the first book in the series, you’ll know that you have to go in expecting these books to be…

Plain Bad Heroines

I was on a bit of a roller coaster with this book and after finishing this book my feelings for it are conflicted. On one hand I really enjoyed the creepy boarding school vibe, the trippy ‘magic’, and the originality of the story. On the other hand there were some parts of the story that…
