Review: Red’s Tangled Tale by Suzanna Lynn

For some time, fairy tale retellings, twists, and mashups were my go-to books. I couldn’t get enough of them. Then I ran into a string of contemporary reads, and that’s what I’ve been going for lately. I was so excited to return to fairy tales […]

Review: DPR: Miami, Episode 1: Bloodlines by Allyson Gottlieb and Kassandra Kush

What a fun read this was! This was like Castle meets Law & Order meets Lucifer. The paranormal element is a great concept. I loved how the main characters didn’t effortlessly mesh with one another, they have growing pains and prejudices against one another as new […]

Congratulations to Stacie Wilson on the release of her debut novel! I read the prequel to Myst two years ago and loved it, so I had been looking forward to picking up where the prequel left off. I wanted to see what the characters would […]

Review: Asleep by Krystal Wade

Review: Asleep by Krystal Wade

This was such a unique read. I can’t recall ever having read a book prior to this one where I doubted the reliability of the narrator from the very beginning. Throwing nearly everything that Rose, the main character, says happened while maintaining her claim of […]
