Disclaimer: I received an electronic copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. I am friends with the author and we shared a publisher. The flow and style of the language in this novel took me on a trip around the world that I’m not sure I wanted to come back from. WhetherContinue reading “Review: All Saints (Murder Ballads and Whiskey #4) by Jason Jack Miller”
There were moments while reading this book that I forgot it was a romance novel. It’s just that the romantic element felt like a subplot to all the craziness going on regarding Seth’s familial estate, but we happened to also spend a lot of time in Nate’s brain as he angsted about Seth.
While there were some elements to enjoy in this book, I’m actually much more impressed that I got over halfway through the available books in this series before I got to one that I vaguely enjoyed rather than devoured.
I started this book in the afternoon and finished it before I went to bed that evening.

I couldn’t bear to tear myself away from theContinue reading “Review: Bluewater Blues (Bluewater Bay #15) by G.B. Gordon”

When he starts hearing aContinue reading “Author Interview with Nicholas Conley”

When the credits rolled on Ant-Man, I turned to my husband and exclaimed, “Marvel made me a heist movie!” When I read the first blurb about Artemis ages ago, I turned to my husband and exclaimed, “Andy Weir is writing me a heist novel!” Considering I read the book in the space of a solid 4 hoursContinue reading “Review: Artemis by Andy Weir”
Now that I’ve discovered a newfound love for queer historical romance, it was really only a matter of time before I made the jump to the urban fantasy variety. This novel was an excellent introductory choice that I devoured in the space of one airport wait + flight to Florida, and I had to resistContinue reading “Review: The Magpie Lord (A Charm of Magpies #1) by K.J. Charles”
As expected, someone left a toothbrush behind before we started the road trip (we’ll blame the gray cat currently purring in my lap, trying to look innocent). So, we had to swing back around to Speculative Chic for a book spotlight and short interview. Thanks so much to everyone who spread the word on socialContinue reading “Spotlight Round-Up: STEEL BLOOD Blog Tour Stop #3.5”
