All the Dangerous Things

Stacy Willingham’s debut A Flicker in the Dark was a huge hit last year. And while I enjoyed the story, it wasn’t my favorite simply because I found it predictable.  Even with that I was excited to receive an advanced copy of her upcoming release All the Dangerous Things. A Flicker in the Dark REview…

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/…

Malice House

When I read the synopsis of Malice House, I immediately knew it was going to fit right in with spooky season. The mixture of horror and mystery sounded exactly like my cup of tea, so I was stoked to get an ARC. After the death of her father, Malice House has been left to Haven…

Sign Here

This was such a fun and unique book! It’s a great blend of a murder mystery, family drama, and dark humor. Even before I started reading, the synopsis was giving me all the Grady Hendrix vibes. I mean I’m so here for the all of Hendrix’s unique and weird takes on things, so I was…
