Re-Post Review: The Winters by Lisa Gabriele

With the release of the paperback version of this lovely book, I wanted to take a minute and re-share my review with you guys! I know that many of you loved the classic story of Rebecca and this book here in a modern retake on that classic gothic novel.

I really enjoyed this one and easily gave it 4 stars. It had loads of atmosphere and all the gothic hallmarks that I enjoy in a novel. I also have a copy of the paperback version up for giveaway today on my Instagram so be sure to stop by and enter to win a copy!

As a side note, I wanted to say how much I love this new cover redesign! The bright red cover of the hardback novel is nice and all, but I thought the dark moody-ness of this cover, paired with the castle on the front really made it stand out and appealing! Absolutely love it! Anyway check out my re-share here to see what I thought of this book when I read it! Continue reading “Re-Post Review: The Winters by Lisa Gabriele”

Review: Interview with the Vampire (The Vampire Chronicles #1) by Anne Rice (Audible Edition)

I have had Interview with a Vampire on my TBR list for YEARS. The 1994 film was a favorite of mine and I was eager to read the books when I was older.

My sister and mom gave me the book on more than one occasion to read but it just never felt like the right time, but for some reason, after Halloween this year felt like that right time.

That was when I started this audiobook…..early Nov and here it is the first part of Jan and I am just now finishing it. Simon Vance was the narrator and he did a fabulous job with the narration, but I still had mixed feelings about the overall story.

Special Feature: A Sanctuary of Spirits (Spectral City #2) by Leanna Renee Hieber

Leanna Renee Hieber is such a strong writer when it comes to historical fiction mixed with the paranormal. I have read her Strangely Beautiful series and thought it was wonderful!

I also read the first book in this series and thought it was equally exciting and well written. I was so sad that I couldn’t fit this next installment into my review calendar but I am thriller that I get to share a little about this book with all of you guys!

I adore Hieber’s books, it’s like she gets me, I love the Victorian/Gothic/Gaslight Fiction so much and you can tell that she loves this time period and style in her books. If you love historical fiction mixed with some paranormal and sizzling romance, this is your writer.

Review: The Widow of Rose House by Diana Biller

Please excuse me while I fangirl so hard over this book! The cover alone threatened to send me into a swoon. It’s perfection and I love it so much.

I would have read the book for the cover alone, but the title—lord the title promised a perfect gothic romance which was exactly what I have been in the mood for lately!

When I cracked this one open, I couldn’t wait for the glory that was promised between the pages and what glory it was! Spoiler—I absolutely adored this book and can’t wait to read more by this author! Continue reading “Review: The Widow of Rose House by Diana Biller”

Review: The Widow of Pale Harbor by Hester Fox

I discovered Hester Fox last year with her debut novel, The Witch of Willow Hall, and thought it was marvelous.

When I saw that she had another haunting novel coming out, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! I even saved it as my special October/Halloween feature!

It was released in the middle of September, and even though I wanted to start reading it right away, I also wanted to set the mood because her books demand it so I saved it for October!

Before we get down to this book, let’s talk for a minute about the cover! How unbelievably beautiful is this cover? I love this cover much more than her first book’s cover. The crumbling house in the background immediately made me think of something from a Poe story which has a special little connection to this book. Well done cover designer!
