WoW #198 – Kingdom of the Wicked

Happy Wednesday y’all! This week I’m eagerly waiting on Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco. I really enjoyed her book Stalking Jack the Ripper—y’all don’t judge, I still need to read the rest of that series. I liked the way she blended history with her own story of the events. She created a haunting […]

Review: The Peasant’s Dream by Melanie Dickerson

The Peasant’s Dream by is the eleventh book in the series , which is a cross between historical fiction and fairytale retellings. Here we get the story of the youngest daughter of the duke of Hagenheim, Adela, and an aspiring woodcarver, Frederick. This gender bent retelling of Cinderella is an easy read, though tedious at […]

Review: The Christmas Calamity by Shanna Hatfield

Review: The Christmas Calamity by Shanna Hatfield

The Christmas Calamity by is the third book in her series . I adore this series. Each book can be read as a standalone, however I don’t recommend it. Characters from previous books are interwoven into the town and story. This installment is about Arlan Guthry, the junior partner at the bank, and Alexandra Janowski, […]

Review: Winter of Solace by Kathryn Le Veque

It was exactly the escape I needed during a big ol’ social uprising. Give me ALL the strong, broody knights and ALL the “happily ever after”s. Immediately. Caius d’Avignon is […]

Audio Review: Beauty and Beastly by Melanie Karsak

Audio Review: Beauty and Beastly by Melanie Karsak

Beauty and Beastly by is a steampunk retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast. I love this twist on the original! It is unlike anything I’ve ever read. The clockwork, steam powered Beast is a heartbreaking, yet charming character that was easy to see why the MC would fall for him. Set during 1814 […]
