I’ve learned I cannot resist dark and gloomy mystery/thriller covers. Especially if they involve the sea, it’s a weakness, I suppose. Naturally, this means that I snatched up John Teschner’s Project Namahana. Continue reading

Review: Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter

Pieces of Her is one of my latest BOTM choices, mostly because I regretted not grabbing it the previous month! I know this isn’t a new release, but I just had to try it.

Review: A Wizard’s Guide to Defensive Baking by T. Kingfisher

A couple of months ago, I read my first novel by T. Kingfisher (Nettle & Bone, for those that are curious). I was instantly hooked. From that moment, I promised myself to try and snag the rest of her books, and thankfully my local library is willing to work with me on that count! First up on the list, we have A Wizard’s Guide to Defensive Baking, which is a delightful name. I can tell you that I enjoyed the book just as much as the title. Continue reading
