Review: Glory Road by Lauren K. Denton

Southern fiction is a such a fun genre for me to read. I had never really differentiated books set in regional places, until I was in college and read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. It was then that I fell in love with Southern fiction.

It was very clear that books set in the South have a unique voice all their own and I simply can’t get enough. Whether it’s Southern Gothic (my absolute fav) or Southern romance, Southern beach reads, or Southern Women’s Fiction—I simply love it all, except there just aren’t a ton of books to pick from like there are for larger genres like historical fiction for example.

So that said, when this book came up for review, I was thrilled to read it! The author is a new to me author, but the fact that it’s set in the South and labeled Southern Romance just made me all the more excited to give it a shot! Continue reading “Review: Glory Road by Lauren K. Denton”

Review: The Lost History of Dreams by Kris Waldherr

This book has been on my radar for months. I basically stalked the authors Twitter page waiting to see when there would be ARC’s available and hoping that I would get picked to be an early reader!

To say that this book has my name written all over it is an understatement. I love all things Victorian and Gothic and this book couldn’t have been more intriguing to me if it tried. It had everything I was looking for in a great Gothic read.

I was beyond thrilled to get picked as an early reader and patiently waited to start the book so that I could savor every single aspect of it! The hype around this book has been pretty real, it’s  been all over social media for a while now and I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the hype!

Review: Death of a New American (Jane Prescott #2) by Mariah Fredericks

If you have been following me for just about any amount of time, it’s pretty clear that I love historical mysteries. Obviously this is a huge genre with mystery novels coming out of every period to fit just about every interest.

So when I am looking for a new historical mystery, I want to read something that is either ‘new’ or different, or has an outstanding main character that  can relate to. When this series came up for review, I hadn’t heard a thing about it.

In fact I was actually kind of surprised that I hadn’t heard anything about it since it’s set at the turn of the century which is one of my favorite historical mystery periods. Continue reading “Review: Death of a New American (Jane Prescott #2) by Mariah Fredericks”

Review: A Royal Pain (Her Royal Spyness #2) by Rhys Bowen

As you might have guessed, I am burning my way through this series at an alarming rate. Not even half way through the first book, I had to order the rest of the books in the series because I knew that I would be reading all of them in a matter of weeks.

I have read the latest book in this series, Four Weddings and Maybe a Funeral (the last book to date)….I know—don’t ask me why but I read them completely out of order and I figured that I better remedy that situation and start from the beginning.

But I wasn’t expecting to love this series as much as I do! The books are easy breezy reads and I have no trouble racing through them in a matter of days. They are interesting and simply fun! Continue reading “Review: A Royal Pain (Her Royal Spyness #2) by Rhys Bowen”
