Ghost Story by Jim Butcher

  Usually there is a year of downtime in the universe of the series before the characters get into a new adventure of mischief. Ghost Story, by contrast, follows Changes by only moments, in a grand continuation. The readers follow the Ghost of the story as he attempts to solve his own murder, and he … Continue reading Ghost Story by Jim Butcher

Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

Okay, I didn't want anyone to know I was reading Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery until I had at least the first one done. (I thought they would go much faster but alas!) The reason I didn't want anyone to know is because... I might have just signed up for another book … Continue reading Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

Kindling by Angel Blackwood

    I can't think of many things more exciting than the privilege of reading the final product of a hard-working writer friend. Y'all remember how loud I was when it came to promoting books written by my friend Ellie Di Julio, and the cheerleading I did for Chase Night's debut novel Chicken. These days … Continue reading Kindling by Angel Blackwood

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff by Christopher Moore

Well, it's really frustrating to have to re-write a post you already wrote once, but I love you guys, so, here.

The Brotherhood of the Rose by David Morrell

  The Brotherhood of the Rose by David Morrell When I told my boyfriend that I needed an "espionage thriller" for the Pop Sugar challenge, he handed me this book, one of his favorites. I had no idea what to expect. As I read I found myself thinking along two lines: about the story, and also … Continue reading The Brotherhood of the Rose by David Morrell

Ash by Malinda Lo

Ash by Malinda Lo This book was really good, really fast, and surprisingly all-ages appropriate! (I just figured there'd be a sex scene somewhere in there, but no!) The great thing about reading a re-telling (like Cinder, Ash was a re-telling of the Cinderella story) is seeing how the individual author breathes new life into … Continue reading Ash by Malinda Lo

Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew Sullivan

Reading Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew Sullivan is going to be tiring and distracting—because you won’t be able to put it down, and when you do, you won’t be able to stop thinking about it!! This book is absolutely fantastic. It’s a fast read, but that doesn’t detract at all from the … Continue reading Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew Sullivan
