The Wolves of London, first in the Obsidian Heart series, is a masterful, mind-bending journey. Laced with horror and mystery elements, Wolves also touches on some steampunk themes.

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King

Sleeping Beauties is large enough to be useful in a zombie apocalypse. At 700 pages, it’s an intricate, character-driven tale that will haunt you for a little while. I’m not going to lie. I started reading this on September 30th but because of its enormity, […]

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Still Alice (the book, not the movie even though the movie is based on the book) is a must read. Fair warning, for adults who have already experienced the loss of a loved one to do Alzheimer’s or a similar disease, it can be extra […]

In 27 Days by Alison Gervais

In 27 Days by Alison Gervais

In 27 Days landed on my anticipated releases list many moons ago but I finally secured a copy to read. This is one that my daughter and I picked out together but I read it first. We tend to switch off so we can cover […]

I cannot say enough about When Autumn Leaves. My daughter and I found this book in the $5.98 and under section at Barnes & Noble. It sounded cute and had her name in the title. The main character is named Autumn. It was less than […]

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

Our Dark Duet is the follow-up to This Savage Song. While I did not love Savage as much as my daughter did, I couldn’t pass up the sequel. I’m glad I stayed the course. Beginning with Kate in her “new life” as a monster hunter – […]

ArchEnemy (Looking Glass Wars 3) by Frank Beddor

WOW! The Looking Glass Wars is pretty brilliant as a trilogy but ArchEnemy is an incredible conclusion. We pick up with Alyss desperate for her imagination powers to return after the devastating end to Seeing Redd. A journey that follows Alyss, Redd, Arch, and, of course, […]

Book Review: Dubliners by James Joyce

Book Review: Dubliners by James Joyce

I needed a palate cleanser in the worst way. Dubliners fit the bill of a refreshing read since I need to plow through more new/newer releases. Luckily, when I visited my sister and brother-in-law (*Hi Jen and Alex!*) in San Francisco last year, they took me […]
