Following right where the third book left off, A Perfect Storm continues into the world of human trafficking and how our main characters, Spencer and Arizona, attempt [...]

I grew up with the Little Women story front and center on my book shelf, and grew to love the characters like they were my own family. Because of this history that I have with the March sisters, I was really excited for the chance to read and review Garielle Donnelly’s The Little Women Letters.

What is there to say about David Kowalski’s The Company of the Dead? Let’s start with the premise of the (long) novel. What do you think would happen if the Titanic never hit the iceberg and consequently never sank? Time travel in pop culture tells us nothing good can ever come from trying to change the past (Hello, Back to the Future, anyone?) but that’s [...]

I’m not going to lie; it was the title and the cover that inspired me to take on the task of reviewing How to Eat a Cupcake by Meg Donohue. You know that old adage “never judge a book by its cover”? Well, I did. And I’m so very glad I did. How to Eat a Cupcake isn’t a book that will solve your life [...]

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness [Review]

I read a lot about the supernatural and mythology. When I say a lot what I mean is my bookshelves tend to look like something out of an occult shop. Generally I find supernatural fiction to be trite, contrived, and books that should never be written, but I’m pleased to say that Deborah Harkness’ debut novel A Discovery of Witches breaks all of these stereotypes.
