I am 100% a mood reader and when I started this series I just wasn’t feeling it at all, which bothered me. By all accounts this should have been a series that I would love and I just didn’t when I read the first book the first time.
But I decided after reading one of the later books in the series, that I maybe hadn’t given this series the chance that it deserved. So I went back and re-read the first book and for whatever reason, found it much more enjoyable this time around.
So here I am on the third book in the series and I am 100% hooked on it. I think this is my favorite in the series so far. Even over some of the later books. I loved this one and couldn’t put it down!

I absolutely fell in love with this series when I read the very first book. I can’t believe the series is only on book 4, I feel like so much has happened in these four books. It’s been quite the journey.
When I saw this one on Netgalley, I immediately downloaded it and couldn’t wait to dive in. The book wasn’t due to come out until September and I downloaded the book in June…..needless to say I read it in June because I couldn’t wait to see what happened between Wrexford and Sloane in this book!
I read this book in only a couple of sittings and couldn’t put it down! Another winner from Penrose! Continue reading “Review: Murder at Queen’s Landing (Wrexford & Sloane #4) by Andrea Penrose”
If there is one author that I have always had good luck reading—-it’s Gail Carriger. I discovered her Parasol Protectorate series years ago and fell head over heels in love with it.
Since then I have read may of her other spin off novels and series most set in the same world as the Parasol Protectorate series. I adore her spunky and sassy characters that make up her world but I also love that many of her characters are LGBTQ, while others are not.
She isn’t afraid to write bold characters and doesn’t conform to traditional gender roles in her novels which I love. I also know that whenever I pick up one of her books, I am always going to be in for a treat! Continue reading “Review: Defy or Defend (Delightfully Deadly #2) by Gail Carriger”

When I started reading the Sebastian St Cyr books from beginning to end in December, I had this book in the forefront of my mind.
I had really jumped around in this series over the years and that often left me feeling a little confused as to different character relations. I was tried of feeling lost in the series, so before this book came out I went back and read the entire series beginning to end starting in December.
There wasn’t a single minute that I regretted that decision. I loved all of the books, though some were better than others, I still enjoyed watching the characters evolve and change. It’s with that evolution fresh in mind that I started this book. Continue reading “Review: Who Speaks for the Damned (Sebastian St. Cyr #15) by C.S. Harris”
