Review: ‘Bad Magic’ by Pseudonymous Bosch

I must confess. I have had this book forever. OK, that’s stretching the truth a little bit, but I received this book back in July of 2014. Then, as it happens sometimes, it fell off of my e-reader. So when I was trying to catch up with my... Read More | Share it now!

‘Crash Into You’ by Katie McGarry #Review #COYER

I loved the first couple of books in Katie McGarry’s Pushing the Limits series. They were probably some of the first books that got me into reading contemporary YA fiction. I first read Crash Into You a couple of years ago, and I stupidly... Read More | Share it now!

You’ll find no ‘Asylum’ here ~ by Madeleine Roux #Review #Coyer

Told completely in flashback, Miramont’s Ghost is the story of Miramont Castle in Manitou Springs, Colorado and how it came to be haunted. Well, to be honest, it’s the story of everything leading up to that. Adrienne Beauvier is the... Read More | Share it now!

From pickpocket to savior? ~ ‘Artful’ by Peter David #Review #COYER #CTRAT

Fun literary fact: Charles Dickens, a prolific writer in the 1800s (perhaps you have heard of him?), wrote about many horrible creatures in his works; however, to my knowledge, he never wrote about vampires. Second fun fact: Peter David did. After... Read More | Share it now!

Finders, keepers; losers, dead ~ ‘Witch Finder’ by Ruth Warburton #Review #COYER

Luke Lexton is almost in the Brotherhood. He’s survived the trial by knife and the trial by fire; now he has a month to complete the trial by hammer. Once he’s in, he can’t leave the Malleus Maleficorum except by his death.... Read More | Share it now!

“I” before “e” except ‘Between You & Me’ by Mary Norris #Review #COYER

I am that friend on Facebook who shudders when I see you’ve written “Which do you like better – cars or plane’s?” And (not-so-silently) judges you for not knowing the difference between possession and plural. I am... Read More | Share it now!
