Inheritance by is a prequel novella to her series which finally gives readers the full inside scoop of the infamous graduation party night. This night is the catalyst for […]

You know the saying “a train wreck you can’t look away from”? That is this book to a tee! I devoured it, unable to bring myself to put it down.

Audio Review: Reputation by Lex Croucher

Audio Review: Reputation by Lex Croucher

One reviewer said that this book is “Mean Girls meets Bridgerton,” and I have never seen a more accurate description/comparison for a book. Reputation by is a Regency-era inspired book that reads more like a contemporary YA. I don’t typically read contemporary YA, though sometimes the drama is compelling enough to keep me engrossed as […]

#TBRChallenge ~ The Traitor Prince by CJ Redwine

I thoroughly enjoyed this one! The Traitor Prince by is the third book in her fairy-tale retelling series . This one is a combination retelling of The Prince and the Pauper and The False Prince. While I’m not familiar with the later, I found tidbits of the former sprinkled through Redwine’s tale. It’s been ten […]

Review: Bright Ruined Things by Samantha Cohoe

Review: Bright Ruined Things by Samantha Cohoe

A loose retelling of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Bright Ruined Things by takes place over the course of one day, following Mae and her role in the Prosper family. I have never read The Tempest so I personally cannot compare the two. What I can say is that I enjoyed Cohoe’s melding of 1920s culture and […]
