Review: The Paradox Hotel by Rob Hart

The Paradox Hotel is the latest novel to come from the mind of Rob Hart, though admittedly, it’s the first novel I’ve read by him. Science fiction meets mystery in this paradoxical tale – as the title proves to be more literal than not. Continue reading

The Best Books of 2022 (According to Cat)

It’s hard to believe that the year is nearly at an end. Alongside making plans for the new year, this means it is due time to talk about the best books of the year (according to me, at least!). As per usual, I’m pretty horrible about picking just one or two books (though I was able to narrow it down for The Book Review Crew’s Post). So, instead, I’m going to split all of my reading into categories and choose my favorites for each. Continue reading

The Golden Couple is the latest novel from the dynamic writing duo – Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. If you love thrillers with unique takes or overall writing style, this is a book worth snatching up. Personally, I’m grateful that BOTM included it as a February option, as I might have otherwise missed this read. Continue reading

Review: Echo by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

There are a lot of reasons why I really wanted to read Echo by Thomas Olde Heuvelt. First, the cover reminded me of Wool, a book (well, series) I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. For another, the opening scene reminded me of a popular graphic novel/television series. Continue reading

Review: The Golden Enclaves by Naomi Novik

Wow. I can’t believe the end (of the series) is already here. It’s time to say goodbye to The Scholomance. The Golden Enclaves is the third and final novel in Naomi Novik’s series, and I have been dying to see where things go after that wicked cliffhanger from The Last Graduate. Continue reading

Review: The Summer Getaway by Susan Mallery

Sometimes you just really need a chill book to make you happy and force you to take a minute to relax. For me, the most recent book to do that was Susan Mallery’s The Summer Getaway. As the title implies, it is the perfect spring or summer read. Continue reading

Review: The Thousand Eyes by A.K.Larkwood

The Thousand Eyes is the second novel in A.K. Larkwood’s The Serpent Gates series. I admit that I was pretty curious about how the sequel would go and thus couldn’t pass up the opportunity to read it. Also, I love that cover. Continue reading

Review: Homicide and Halo-Halo by Mia P. Manansala

Yes! The sequel to Arsenic and Adobo is finally here! Homicide and Halo-Halo is the second novel in Mia P. Manansala’s series, Tita Rosie’s Kitchen Mystery. My only regret is that the Book of the Month Club didn’t have it available as an add-on. I would have loved to have a matching set. Continue reading
