Review: The Hollows (Kinship #2) by Jess Montgomery

I have had my eye on Jess Montgomery’s debut novel, The Widow’s, for some time so when this one came up for review, I couldn’t pass on it even if it was the second in a series.

A number of readers said this book could be read as a standalone even if it is part of a series so I was eager to jump in and see if that was truly the case. I loved the ‘ghost story’ angle in the summary and couldn’t wait to start reading it!

Admittedly the midwest area and the 1920s aren’t really my go to location or eras for a historical mystery novel but I heard such great things about her debut that I was sure to love this one as well! Continue reading “Review: The Hollows (Kinship #2) by Jess Montgomery”

Review: Where Shadows Dance (Sebastian St. Cyr #6) by C.S. Harris

Another day, another Sebastian St Cyr mystery review. I and so deeply invested in this series right now that basically nothing is getting done around my house or any other reading for that matter.

So many people ask how I read so many books. Well the answer is simple, I speed read but I also read a lot of the books I have up for review right now, weeks or even months before. For example, I have already read 3 books for review in March and April so I am always ahead of schedule and I do this because I like to know I have time to binge read books or series like this one right here.

I read the first book in this series years ago and thought it was good, but it was the second book that has rekindled my interest in the larger series and I couldn’t be more excited about that. Continue reading “Review: Where Shadows Dance (Sebastian St. Cyr #6) by C.S. Harris”

Review: What Remains of Heaven (Sebastian St. Cyr #5) by C.S. Harris

This series is flying by for me and I am living each and every book for all kinds of reasons!

The mysteries are each interesting, new, and twisty but for me the character development through each book has been incredible! When I started this series, I read only book 1 before jumping back in at like book 12. I thought the first book was good as well as the other later books, but I never fully appreciated this series until I started reading it beginning to end.

I didn’t have too much trouble starting this series late, but I did know there were relationships and events that I wasn’t fully understanding because I was so late to the party so to speak. I would recommend starting this series at the beginning if you want the full experience, but if you must start this series with later books, I recommend NOT starting with this one.

Review: Where Serpents Sleep (Sebastian St. Cyr #4) by C.S. Harris

This series has quickly become a favorite of mine. I mean, I’ve read the later books and enjoyed them but now that I am going back and reading the other books in the series in order, I am seeing the nuanced relationships develop and I simply can’t stop reading!

I only meant to read one or two books in the series, but I’ve discarded that notion and am fully intending to binge read this series before the month is out!

I am currently starting book 6 so I am super excited to read all of the books and share not only my reviews but my take two reviews once I read the later books the second time! Continue reading “Review: Where Serpents Sleep (Sebastian St. Cyr #4) by C.S. Harris”
