ARC Review: The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart by Lauren DeStefano

A Curious Tale of the In-Between might have been more intense than The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart but The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart won my heart in a way A Curious Tale of the In-Between did not (even though I loved both books).  Lionel is a wild boy. He doesn’t like […]

5 Contemporary Novels That Scream Summer

Summer is in full swing now (unless you live in the southern hemisphere in which case you are probably bundled up in blankets and I am sorry for teasing you with summer-y books) so I thought it would be approriate to do some summer recommendations.

Review: Gambled Away by Joanna Bourne, Isabel Cooper, Rose Lerner, Jeannie Lin, Molly O’Keefe

All or Nothing by Rose Lerner This was easily my favorite short story in this anthology and not just because it had a Jewish character and a bi character.

ARC Review: Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies by Lindsay Ribar

Isn’t the title of this book just great? It’s even awesomer when the author drops it into some of the conversations in the book. But really, this book is amazing. It seems like it would either be full of dark humor or fluff and while it has both, Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies is surprisingly dark […]
