The Holloway Girls by Susan Crispell!! 🌟 Arc Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

Remy is a Holloway girl. And, this comes with a strange sort of responsibility for a girl at age 16. A Holloway girl’s kiss supposedly brings bad luck during her season. However, when it’s Remy’s turn, she discovers that even something as simple as a lucky kiss can turn bad. She kisses her crush and he falls under a spell of bad luck! But, is this really Remy’s fault?

I mostly enjoyed this story. My favorite piece to this tale is Tobin’s character and how Remy seems to grow stronger and more confident by the end of the book. The magic is really low-key and not discussed in great detail but that didn’t take away from this fun, fast-paced read.

Last Call at the Nightingale by Katharine Schellman!! 🌟 Arc Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this incredible arc!!

I adored this read!! The roaring twenties in New York City! An underground club called The Nightingale that welcomes all patrons equally. Let the drinks flow and the jazz wash away your worries.

This was Vivian’s favorite spot and she would do anything to protect her little piece of heaven even if it meant getting involved in solving a murder that occurred. This murder/mystery is slow-paced but moves smoothly and enjoyably. Especially because it is such a character driven plot.

I really enjoyed this and recommend as a good read!

Witch 13 by Patrick Delaney! 🌟 Arc Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

Wow! This is pure horror with all the gore included! And, it has illustrations… which are seriously freaky! (I thank you for the nightmares but I need an eraser for my brain bc scary).

The plot really centers around a small town sheriff and her deputy on her last night on the job…. and, of course, the witch. There are several issues revolving around the sheriff and why she is leaving that make up part of the story. But, mainly, the focus goes to the witch and her tricks and treats on this Christmas-y night.

I did feel like the chapters jumped around a bit and that the ending was wanting but still a good horror read to check out.

Misrule by Heather Walter 🌟Arc Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this incredible arc!!!

I have been waiting for this and was not at all disappointed! Misrule takes place 100 years after Malice and is full of the good, bad and ugly necessary in this fairytale retelling. A gothic castle to die for (if that’s your thing, it is mine!) and even more delightful details of every single piece creating this vision.

This story is twisty and turny, just as I expected it would be. It also was surprising in the best of ways and all I can really say is, if you loved Malice then get your hands on Misrule and devour this like the full course delicious meal it is.

The Summer Place by Jennifer Weiner 🌟ARC Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this incredible arc!!!

I really loved this read! Speaking on a large family during the pandemic and after which was so relatable. I think everyone can remember this beginning time. Quickly, the reader learns of Eli’s daughter Ruby’s engagement. However things are not quite so cut and dry. Eli has a big secret that could ruin everything and it’s intense and entertaining to see how this plays out.

This story is character driven and it’s within these characters that the true beauty of this author’s storytelling lies. So unique and vivacious, I felt like I intimately knew some of these people by the end.

I highly recommend this! Out May 10th!

Black Tide by KC Jones 🌟ARC Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!

This book is described as sci-fi/horror and if you are in the mood for that then this is the perfect read.

It’s just another day and then it’s the end of the world. This was a great read for me because it gave me exactly what I wanted without any of the confused explanations that are in longer apolypse style stories. I really wanted a fast-paced horror and that’s what I got and I couldn’t ask for more.

This book features a few interesting main characters that drive the story forward and a whole lot of action! Definitely recommend this one!

Out April 31st!

🌟 Arc Review 🌟 Magpie by Elizabeth Day

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!

I love a good thriller! And, this was perfect especially because it included so much more than just thrills and chills!

Marisa finally finds somebody that she feels comfortable enough to start a life with. Jake seems like a great guy, however, nothing is exactly how it seems at first. This is something that I quickly understood as the author starts outlining the characters in the beginning of the story.

The happy couple move in together and fairly quickly realize they will need to take on a lodger to help pay the bills. Kate joins the household, a little too comfortably in Marisa’s opinion. When Marisa becomes pregnant the story really takes on some interesting twists.

This wasn’t like the usual thrillers I read because there was such an intense sense of hope bound to this story. Definitely a lot of intriguing pieces to put together and more than what I would typically expect.

Definitely recommend this!

🌟 Arc Review 🌟 The Agathas by Kathleen Glasgow and Liz Lawson

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this incredible arc!!

I loved this book. I adored every second.

Alice is rich, with rich famous parents, parents who are never around. And, after the chaotic events surrounding Alice last summer, nobody else really wants to be around either. Iris is a student at the same school but from the other side of town… the not rich at all side. So when she is offered 3000 dollars to tutor Alice, Iris goes for it. Neither girl expecting to solve a crime or, even weirder, to become friends.

This book was so exciting and really… loveable. A very thrilling read. There were some serious issues, TW for domestic violence and assault.

Out on May 3rd!

🌟Arc Review 🌟 Jagged Little Pill by Eric Smith

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!

This is such an iconic album that for me now symbolizes the raw feelings of youth and this story hits all those sharp edges that are catalysts for teen angst.

This story based on the musical by the same name follows a small group of teens, separately and together, as they experience some of life’s more difficult issues. Even with such harsh realities it’s easy to see from a perspective of a reader how these problems at once create differences between the individuals but at the same time binds them together. That’s the main vibe I get from certain music, including this album, a connection to others who feel and understand it like I do.

I definitely want to see the show now, too!

Out on April 26th!
