So, when I got the chance to read the third book in the
series, A DEATH BY ANY OTHER NAME Read more...
I have to admit that I was actually a bit stunned on how
brutal this book turned out to be. I was hopeful that it
would not be too romanticized, but I had not expected to
be almost traumatized by it.
The story starts off with Dr. Catherine Bennett having Read more...
I have to admit that I'm quite besotted with this cover.
I like how different it is, the crisscrossing of colorful
squares over the image of the girl and I love the
combination of the colors. Now, you should not choose a
book just because of the cover, but Read more...
Wow, what a book. I have read every single one of the

As a long time fan of Ann Cleeves Shetland series

long time to read a book from her Vera Stanhope
series. Especially since I have seen the TV series and
like it Read more...
WINTERSONG by S. Jae-Jones is a book I have wanted to read
first time I laid eyes on the cover and read the blurb.
Yes, even, despite the fact that it's young adult, a
genre that I don't often read, did I feel the need Read more...
When it comes to horror a Gothic tale has something that
with all likelihood always will appeal to me. Add a
mysterious family haunted by an entity just called
"her" and I'm sold. THE GIRL FROM RAWBLOOD instantly
appealed to me with its fascinating cover and interesting

read Read more...
