[Horror October] Review: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

[Horror October] Review: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Fear is a hungry beast. The more you feed it, the more it grows. I have been putting this book off for SO long! To be honest, the hype was a bit intimidating. It’s also Historical, which is so not my thing. So I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this one. As it turns out, I’m somewhere in the middle. I did enjoy it, but I didn’t love it. I don’t know what it is about a Historical setting that […]

[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

Did I read an entirely different book than everyone else read?! I am 1000% disappointed in this. This is the second Kiersten white novel that didn’t work for me, and I confess I’m starting to lose faith in her books. For being a rather short book, it was INSANELY boring. Basically nothing happened for 95% of this book. The first exciting scene is nearly 70 pages in (in the ARC, anyway), then the next thing to happen is yet another […]

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Just like with the first book, I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. As I stated in my review of Walk on Earth a Stranger, I went into the series expecting a historical fantasy. This book is NOT fantasy. The only thing fantasy about this series is Leah’s ability to witch gold. This series is hardcore Historical Fiction, set during the gold rush. I think it’s the latter part that makes it interesting to me. It’s no secret […]

ARC Review: My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows, & Cynthia Hand

ARC Review: My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows, & Cynthia Hand

I’m not one for Historical, or for romance for that matter, but this was such a cute and fun story! Even though it’s outside of my genre comfort zone, I knew when I saw that these three ladies were writing a book together that I had to read it. This book had a definite Princess Bride feel to it. I think if you enjoyed that movie, you will enjoy this as well! The humor had me laughing out loud many times. […]

Review: A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

Review: A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

“They work their discreet types of madness on us, power and pain, and we hold to our truths in the darkness.” I had major problems connecting with this book. Mainly to our lead, Grace. I got no feeling whatsoever from her. In fact, it seemed as if she didn’t have feelings. She was telling the story, but she never had any emotion. Therefore, I felt nothing. I was an onlooker to this story, not part of it. I like to experience […]

Review: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

Review: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

I think everyone knows by now how much I hate historical. I went into this expecting a fantasy. I knew it had a historical aspect, but I didn’t think it would be overpowering. Let me repeat: I thought this was a fantasy. It is NOT a fantasy. In fact, there’s really nothing fantasy about this book at all aside from Leah’s ability to witch gold. This is a historical all the way. But, surprisingly, that didn’t ruin it for me. […]
