This book was everything I wanted it to be and more! Our Way Back to Always is captivating from beginning to end; full of great tropes, swoon-worthy romance, and Latinx culture. This story was the perfect balance between romance, comedy, and grief. Nina Moreno really captured the various feelings of senior year: excitement, dread, worry, […]
By night, the Ankou is a legendary, permanently young mercenary. By day, a witch’s curse leaves him no more than bones. Caught in an unending cycle of death and resurrection, the Ankou wants only to find the death that has been prophesied for him, especially once he begins to rot while he’s still alive….
After the kingdom of Kaer-Ise is sacked, Flora, loyal handmaiden to the princess, is assaulted and left for dead. As the sole survivor of the massacre, Flora wants desperately to find the princess she served. When the Ankou agrees to help her find the princess, and to train her in exchange for her help in breaking his curse, she accepts. But how can she kill an immortal? Especially one whom she is slowly growing to understand—and maybe even to love?
Together, they will solve mysteries, battle monsters, break curses, and race not only against time, but against fate itself.
I love the warm feeling that the holidays bring. Seeing that this book would revolve around Christmas, I knew it was a must read and I was excited to read about these best friends. Nick and Noel embodied the warm feeling of love and comfort that every Hallmark Christmas movie captures. Their dialogue and complete […]
You know that feeling when you start a book, and you can somehow tell that you’re going to absolutely love it? That’s how I felt from the very first page of Eight Perfect Hours. The writing captured my interest from the get-go, and it never released it. Not even now. I’m still thinking about this […]
From TJ Klune, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The House in the Cerulean Sea, comes Under the Whispering Door, a new contemporary fantasy about a ghost who refuses to cross over and the ferryman he falls in love with.
When a reaper comes to collect Wallace Price from his own funeral, Wallace suspects he really might be dead.
Instead of leading him directly to the afterlife, the reaper takes him to a small village. On the outskirts, off the path through the woods, tucked between mountains, is a particular tea shop, run by a man named Hugo. Hugo is the tea shop’s owner to locals and the ferryman to souls who need to cross over.
But Wallace isn’t ready to abandon the life he barely lived. With Hugo’s help he finally starts to learn about all the things he missed in life.
When the Manager, a curious and powerful being, arrives at the tea shop and gives Wallace one week to cross over, Wallace sets about living a lifetime in seven days.
By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, this absorbing tale of grief and hope is told with TJ Klune’s signature warmth, humor, and extraordinary empathy.
Going into this book I was super excited, because this was my first Brigid Kemmerer book and I’ve heard amazing things about this author’s writing. So, you could say my expectations were high. Let me just say, Brigid surpassed my expectations. This book BLEW MY MIND. In this book, you meet Tessa, an apothecary who […]
Let me start off by saying I am a HUGE fan of the “fake dating”, “fake relationship”, really fake anything trope. It is one of my guilty pleasures. This book did such a great job at creating a fake relationship! In this book you meet Ph.D. candidate, Olive Smith. A twenty something year old woman […]
Gripping mystery against an eerie backdrop. Dark and Shallow LIes took my on quite the ride. Ginny’s vivid description of life in a remote bayou town paints the perfect backing for this twisted tale. Normally I’m not one to read YA mysteries as I don’t find them overly compelling, but this one sucked me right […]
