The Resting Place

Eleanor suffers from prosopagnosia (face blindness) which prevents her from recognizing any familiar face. She’s had this her entire life and has learned to cope with it by recognizing specific physical features, mannerisms, and voices. When Eleanor goes to her weekly dinner with her Grandmother, Vivianne, she witnesses Vivianne’s murder. Unfortunately, Eleanor’s condition makes it…

The Keeper of Night

I’m a huge fan of YA fantasy, but I think I’ve decided I’m not a huge fan of fantasy duologies. I have started to notice, at least in the duologies I have read recently, is a big issue with pacing. Most fantasy stories need time to develop and establish world-building. I find that the first…

The Lighthouse Witches

My second witchy read of the year! There is something about fall that makes me crave stories with spooky, atmospheric, and witchy vibes. The Lighthouse Witches was the perfect fit and would be a great rainy day read. Filled with plenty of Nordic folklore and covering the witch trials during King James VI’s reign in…

The Night She Disappeared

I am a huge Lisa Jewell fan and I was very excited to get an advanced copy of The Night She Disappeared. This is a typical Jewell mystery, with multiple timelines and narrators. In 2017, nineteen year old Tallulah and her boyfriend don’t come home after a night out. They left behind everything, including their…

A Distant Grave

Maggie D’arcy is back in the A Distant Grave. This is the sequel to the 2020 release The Mountains Wild, which you can see my review HERE. Detective mystery series are my bread and butter. When I’m stuck in a reading rut, they’re my go too, so I was very excited when my friends over…

The Maidens

Alex Michaelides’ first novel The Silent Patient was a New York Times bestseller when it released in 2019. I enjoyed it as you can see here in my REVIEW, but it was no Verity and it’s not a book I recommend very often. However, the premise of his sophomore novel The Maiden’s is completely alluring…

Paper & Blood

If you read my review of Ink & Sigil, the first book in this series, you’ll know I loved this series and book 2 did not disappoint. See my review for Ink & Sigil HERE. In Paper& Blood, Al MacBharrais is back along with Buck Foi (a whiskey obsessed hobgoblin), Gladys Who Has Seen Some…

House of Hollow

House of Hollow is one of those books that once it sinks it’s teeth in you, you cannot stop reading. Which is exactly how I came to binge this book in an afternoon when I should have been doing far more productive things. This is also one of those books that makes me question the…

The Silent Suspect

The third installment in the Paige Northwood series and honestly my least favorite so far. See my review HERE for Silent Night. Paige Northwood is a British Sign Language interrupter. While she was an interpreter for the police department in the first two books, she’s now landed a job as an interpreter for Social Worker,…

The Lost Apothecary

Historical Fiction and a mystery all rolled into one? Sign me up! The Lost Apothecary Told from three different women’s perspectives and between two different time periods, The Lost Apothecary was an excellent read! Caroline was suppose to be in London on her ten year anniversary trip but life had other plans for her. Instead…
