Book Review: “The Witch’s Heart” by Genevieve Gornichec

I'm going to be honest with you - I started writing this review as soon as I finished the book, and then promptly got bored with writing the review and wandered off to do something else, then didn't read another book for almost three weeks. Now that I've finished that book (The Lost Apothecary) and … Continue reading Book Review: “The Witch’s Heart” by Genevieve Gornichec

First Impression Friday: “Lore” by Alexandra Bracken

I've been on the library waiting list for this book for almost two months as of this writing (March 4, 2021), and I've heard so many good things, so let's see what this book has to say. From GoodReads: Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Lore” by Alexandra Bracken

Top 10 Bookish Wishes

Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday, hosted as always by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week's theme is Bookish Wishes, in honor of Jana's birthday!

Book Review: “After Alice Fell” by Kim Taylor Blakemore

After Alice Fell is one of the better books I've read recently in the "suspense" category. I suppose the last one I attempted was Bloodline, and we all know how that turned out: it was so terrible I DNF'd it only 33% of the way through and couldn't believe how such an awful mess got … Continue reading Book Review: “After Alice Fell” by Kim Taylor Blakemore

First Impression Friday: “The Witch’s Heart” by Genevieve Gornichec

Good morning, and welcome back to First Impression Friday! This is where I reveal to you that I'm currently writing this FIF post in February (February 23, to be exact!), the day after I received my February Fantastic Strangling Book Club book in the mail, The Witch's Heart. I've seen a lot about this online … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Witch’s Heart” by Genevieve Gornichec

Book Review: “West With Giraffes” by Lynda Rutledge

After a bunch of depressing books in a row, this is the first book that I would like to shout to the rooftops and tell everyone to read it, because it is absolutely beautiful. The beginning is a little disjointed - and the few "current era" interruptions of Woody by his nursing home orderlies are … Continue reading Book Review: “West With Giraffes” by Lynda Rutledge

First Impression Friday: “After Alice Fell” by Kim Taylor Blakemore

I believe this was February's First Kindle Read, and I'll go ahead and let you know that I am actually reading it in February. I've just read so many books so far this year (37 as of this writing!) that it seems I've got a backlog of posts to write! From GoodReads: New Hampshire, 1865. … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “After Alice Fell” by Kim Taylor Blakemore

Book Review: “Opium and Absinthe” by Lydia Kang

This is a popcorn novel, and Tillie Pembroke is insufferable. I've talked about popcorn novels on here before - books that are there to be read when nothing else is, and the only reason I read this book is because it's been sitting on my Kindle shelf for a long time (I believe I got … Continue reading Book Review: “Opium and Absinthe” by Lydia Kang
