Catching Christmas {Review}

I accidentally read a Christian Christmas Romance novel, guys. I found this book while wandering the aisles of my local library and the book jacket only talked about the fact that there’s a taxi driver who has to ferry an old lady with dementia around town. It was pretty cute though. The last half was… Continue reading Catching Christmas {Review}

My Top Ten 2019 Bookish Resolutions

Today is a freebie for Top Ten Tuesday, so I thought I’d revisit one of my favorites (on another blog) – Ten Book-related Resolutions. I always do a Goodreads Challenge – mine for 2019 will be the same as 2018: 60 books. I’d like to (finally) complete a Popsugar Reading Challenge and/or a Book Riot… Continue reading My Top Ten 2019 Bookish Resolutions

Christmas with You: Gabriel’s Angel / Home for Christmas {Review}

3 Stars because half the book wasn’t even about Christmas. It was wintery, but not Christmas. Gabriel’s Angel is a really cute story and predictable in the best way. I love a good ‘rescue from a snowbank’ and this one delivered. It was a little bit ‘insta-love’, but I feel like that’s really due to… Continue reading Christmas with You: Gabriel’s Angel / Home for Christmas {Review}

10 Horror Novels I Can’t Wait to Read

I don’t really go for very horrific horror novels, if you haven’t been able to tell from my review choices this October. I love creepy books, though. When the suspense and eerie feelings ratchet up to a crescendo, that’s when I’m most intrigued. There’s a list on Goodreads called Space Horror that I keep meaning to… Continue reading 10 Horror Novels I Can’t Wait to Read

The Right Hand of Evil {Review}

7 out of 10? I really liked it but didn’t love it. This is probably the first (only?) actual horror novel I’ve read for Blogoween. I used to love John Saul books, and this one has just sitting on my shelf, begging to be read. I finally gave in because I needed a not-just-Gothic-or-semi-creepy-but-actually-horror book in my… Continue reading The Right Hand of Evil {Review}

I Remember You: A Ghost Story {Review}

  My favorite thing about reading a novel in translation is that not all words are translatable and you have to stumble through them the best you can. I don’t speak Icelandic so it was fun to look up pronunciations for names of towns and people. Don’t ask me to say them out loud, though,… Continue reading I Remember You: A Ghost Story {Review}

The Darkling Bride {Review}

A solid 4 stars. This book refuses you to miss the connections with Jane Eyre. It’s a quality book, though. Eerie vibes throughout the novel help set the stage and unexplained references to a main character’s shady past help to set the mood for most of the novel. There’s a lot going on in here,… Continue reading The Darkling Bride {Review}

But when their father must rush their mother to the hospital one stormy night, Rill is left in charge—until strangers arrive in force.
