Let me start by being completely upfront with you guys. I first read this book last year as a beta reader, and I am now writing my review after having read an advance review copy, so I’m familiar with this story and have seen it develop over time. Paula Stokes is a dear friend. But my blog is […]

ARC Book Review: Out on Good Behavior by Dahlia Adler

Book Reviews | May 26, 2016

The Radleigh University series is one of the best and most solid new adult series out there. Consider this my vehement recommendation to anyone who has ever expressed any […]

Book Reviews | August 20, 2015

Last year I read and fell in love with Libba Bray’s writing in The Diviners, so even though its sequel counts a daunting 624 pages, I dove right in and got swept up in it all again.

ARC Book Review: Bright Lights, Dark Nights by Stephen Emond

Book Reviews | July 30, 2015

I didn’t know much about Bright Lights, Dark Nights before I picked it up – aside from the fact that it had an interracial romance and gorgeous illustrations. I’m delighted to say that I found this an engaging, quick read that had both light and dark tones and some thought-provoking discussion of modern-day racial tensions. A heavy focus […]
