The Fake Mate

I have never read a shapeshifter romance before. While I love fantasy, romantasy, and romance books, but have just never had the desire to pick one up. But I’ve heard great things about Lana Ferguson’s books so when Berkley sent me a copy, I decided to give it a whirl. From the first chapter, we…

How to Sell a Haunted House

Grady Hendrix, has such an imagination. He’s definitely not for everyone, but I for one love his weird mix of humor, horror, & uncomfortable things. He’s newest release How to Sell a Haunted House, was one of my most anticipated for winter 2023 and I was beyond excited when Berkley Publishing sent me an ARC….

Witcha Gonna Do?

All I want to read in September and October are books with magic in them. Give me all the witches, secret societies, and magical stories and I’m a happy girl. I love throwing in some lighter witchy reads though, especially a good witchy romance. Last year I loved The Ex Hex and Darynda Jones’ Betwixt…

The Book of Cold Cases

Even though she was acquitted, Shea Collins is the true crime writer behind the blog The Book of Cold Cases, which dives…
