“What If You & Me” is the second book in Roni Loren’s Say Everything series and, I have to say, I liked it even more than the first(“Yes & I Love You”) and I Really loved that one! Though it is a series, they can both absolutely be read as standalones, but, if you can […]
[Emily’s Review]: The Girl in the Headlines by Hannah Jayne
The first page, heck the first chapter of this book was super intense. WHAT A HOOK! I was somewhat let down after that first chapter. The Girl in the Headlines had so so so much potential. The blurb sounds like a true crime lover’s dream. But actually it was a true crime lover’s nightmare. There […]
Emily’s Review: The Isle of Sin and Shadows
This island alone boasts more ghost stories than all of Louisiana combined.
And I’m one of them.
In the Louisiana swamplands, ghost stories are as much a part of childhood as chasing fireflies and crawfishing. They never much scared me, though, nor the possibility of evil out to do me harm. Until the night I watched shadows come to life and butcher everything I loved.
With a stranger’s help, I managed to escape to an isolated place miles north, and, in time, became my own ghost story. A cautionary tale for the locals.
Nearly a decade passed, before I returned to my birthplace, in hopes of unearthing long-awaited answers. Instead, I found something I wasn’t looking for. Someone. A remedy for my loneliness.
Or so I thought.
Turns out, Thierry Bergeron is no elixir. He’s a deadly poison, cursed by the demons of his past, and feared by those who call him the elusive Rougarou of the bayou. A devious rogue, whose seductive whispers and rough hands haunt my dreams. The big bad wolf that defiles me without apology, or remorse.
I should resist him, but I can’t.
And when the shadows return to stake their claim on me, his darkness is the only safe place to hide.
[Rachel’s Review]: Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin
First and foremost I would suggest reading the content warnings on Hannah Capin’s website to determine if this is a safe book for you. Although it is an amazing book and I do recommend it, it’s important to keep your own wellbeing in mind! I didn’t even hear about this book until about a week […]
[Lisa’s Review]: Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw
Winterwood is a hauntingly beautiful story, about a young girl, her magical heritage, dark woods full of lost things, and the boy she found in said woods on the one night a month the trees don’t see everything. “But tonight I walk without her, chasing that same moon up the same dark, frozen river – […]
[Bre’s Review]: Gypsy King by Devney Perry
“I’d been waiting for my Gypsy King.” This story is the perfect mixture of small town and motorcycle club romance that will get your heart pumping and melt it on the same page. In one book, Devney gives us murder and secrets alongside family and loyalty. What else could you want? I’ve been waiting for […]
[Rachel’s Review]: The Companion by Kim Taylor Blakemore
I was so excited for this book because it seemed in the same genre of Alias Grace which I absolutely devoured. I loved the unreliable narrator who we as the reader (along with other characters in the book) desperately wanted to believe but left us questioning everything and everyone. Things I Liked: Things I Didn’t: […]
[Rachel’s Review]: Gravemaidens by Kelly Coon
I. Loved. This. Book! It was so dark and had my heart absolutely racing from start to finish. Main character Kammani’s fifteen year old sister Nanaea is one of three beautiful girls chosen to accompany Lugal Marus, the leader of their city-state, into the Netherworld (aka afterlife) to be his Queen and serve him for […]
