I have been thoroughly enjoying the Witchless In Seattle series by Dakota Cassidy. Today I am sharing my thoughts on Quit Your Witchin’ and Dewitched the second and third books in the series. I have been listening to the books on audio and Hollie Jackson captures the humor of this series perfectly. Filled with snark, and feisty characters Cassidy shares the misadventures of Stevie Cartwright, her familiar Belfry and and resident British ghost spy Winterbottom as they investigates murders. Hilarious and addictive I hope you check out these audios.
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco is the first in an unnamed trilogy. I had the pleasure of meeting the author at BEA and obtaining a signed ARC. Stalking Jack the Ripper was an engaging, dark, twisted and clever historical mystery that takes place in Whitechapel in the late 19th century as a young woman, along with her Uncle and his apprentice work to catch Jack the Ripper.
It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover narrated by Oliva Song explored the complexities of loving those who hurt us. This might surprise you, but I always go into Hoover’s stories blind. I never read the blurb, avoid reviews and just experience them. It Ends with Us was heartbreaking and while there is romance this book is more about a serious issue.
She’s My Kind of Girl by Jennifer Dawson is a novella in the Something New series and takes place in Revival, Illinois. Dawson delivers a smoking hot second chance romance that you’ll want to devour in a single sitting.
Today on Nonna’s Corner I am delighted to share The Thank You Book by Mo Willems. I was leading a Bloggercon roundtable at BEA when the ticketed signing took place. Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun, loves Mr. Willems and graciously stood in line to get a signed copy for Princess Sophia. While this book is geared towards readers aged 4-8 and is perfect for grades 1-3, Sophia and I enjoyed the antics of Elephant and Piggie.
I am having an absolute blast reading the Wedding Belles series! For Better or Worse by Lauren Layne is book two and it delivered heart, laughter and swoons. I simply devoured this in a single sitting!
Wow. The Hating Game by Sally Throne was not even on my radar until the publisher contacted me. When I read the synopsis, I knew that I had to make room for it. The following day I read a review from a fellow blogger and began to get excited. Little did I know I was going to begin a “five cups of coffee” romance, the kind that leaves you with a killer book hangover.
Today I am excited to share my thoughts on Genevieve Cogman’s Invisible Library and Masked City. These are the first two books in the fantasy series The Invisible Library. Filled with mystery and suspense we travel to alternate London and worlds filled with FAE, Werewolves, automatons, Dragons and more. This series is positively delightful.
Lately thrillers have called me to read them, and The Perfect Girl by Gilly Macmillan drew me in with its promise of gripping thriller and secrets. Fast paced, with different narratives I easily devoured The Perfect Girl in two sittings.
Nothing makes me happier than a stronger second book in a series and such was the case with A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir. This is the second novel in young adult dystopian fantasy series An Ember in the Ashes. (Which ironically was standalone, then duology and now there are two more books in the works) Brilliant, fast paced and exquisitely written the audio narrated by Katharine McEwan, Fiona Hardingham and Steve West was completely addictive.
