December BOTM Options and Choices

Have you guys heard about BOTM (Book of the Month)? I’ve been signed up for years, but the recent changes they have made have resulted in me getting pretty hooked, to say the least. For those that don’t know: BOTM is a subscription service that offers five (see below) selections each month. Readers get to choose the book they want – plus two extras. There are a bunch of add-ons for readers to choose from as well. Continue reading

Review: Girl, Forgotten by Karin Slaughter

Wow! Two BOTM sequels in one month? I’m feeling pretty lucky right now! Girl, Forgotten is the sequel to the smash hit novel (and adaptation), Pieces of Her. Once again, I haven’t seen the adaptation so that I won’t be making any comparisons on that front. Continue reading

If you haven’t heard about The Cartographers yet, please take a minute to sit down and look it up! I immediately fell in love with Peng Shepherd’s book, as it is SO different from what I usually read. Best of all, it blends mystery with fantasy, providing the best of both worlds. Continue reading

Review: The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James

Yes! I fell in love with Simone St. James’ writing two years ago when The Sun Down Motel was released, and I have been counting down the days to a new release ever since (yes, I do plan on going through her backlog at some point). The Book of Cold Cases is every bit the novel I’ve been waiting for, as it blends mystery and fantasy into one delightful mix.

Reading Challenge: I Completed The BOTM Reading Challenge!

Hello readers! How are everyone’s reading challenges going? I’ll admit that I’ve been feeling pretty down about not picking more reading challenges to participate in this year. On the bright side, I did go through with the BOTM reading challenge, and guess what! I just completed it for the year! Well, not just, but my award arrived, and I’m pretty excited about that. Just wanted to share the happy news. Continue reading

A River Enchanted was one of my three choices for February’s BOTM. I just finished reading another novel by Rebecca Ross (Dreams Lie Beneath), and since I loved it, I was more than willing to give this new fantasy book a try. Continue reading

Review: The Family Game by Catherine Steadman

The Family Game was one of my recent BOTM choices, and I jumped on it because, well, I’m a sucker for thriller novels. Written by Catherine Steadman, this novel promises an eccentric family, traditions, and twisted games. What more could you ask for? Continue reading

Review: The Christie Affair by Nina de Gramont

The Christie Affair was one of my choices for February’s BOTM. I’ll admit that I took a bit of a risk here since I’m actively trying to read more historical fiction novels these days (BOTM has been making that easier on me). While this novel is based on a real person (Agatha Christie), it is a work of fiction. Meaning that Nina de Gramont does not promise that this novel is true. Continue reading

Review: The Hacienda by Isabel Cañas

If you love Mexican Gothic, then you’ll love The Hacienda by Isabel Cañas. At least that’s the marketing that sucked me in – and I am so happy for that fact. This is absolutely a book worth reading. Continue reading
