🌴 Pub Day Review: Mary Jane πŸŒ΄

“Where people were just doing what they wanted, without concern as to how it was seen. Maybe a person’s standing in the community was an illusion. Like the witch in the Cone house. An imagined evil that created unnecessary rules.” ———————————— Wow, well, what to say about Mary Jane… I get Mary Jane. Mary JaneContinue reading “🌴 Pub Day Review: Mary Jane πŸŒ΄”

🌺 REVIEW: Ariadne πŸŒΊ

“I know that human life shines more brightly because it is but a shimmering candle against an eternity of darkness, and it can be extinguished with the faintest breeze.” ————————- I love a mythology retelling and Ariadne did not disappoint!

REVIEW: Arsenic and Adobo

β€œEven now, the thought of staying here forever felt like a hand squeezing me tighter and tighter – this phantom hand molding me into the shape everyone else wanted me to be.” β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”- Ok, so this was my first cozy mystery… the genre never appealed to me because I generally prefer a grittier story. IContinue reading “REVIEW: Arsenic and Adobo”

Pub Day REVIEW: Mirrorland

β€œBecause stealing someone else’s air is how you breathe.” ————————- Mirrorland is a psychological thriller that I imagine won’t be for everyone but boy did I enjoy it!

REVIEW: A Dance with Donegal

I’m very torn about how to rate this one, I really enjoyed the story but had a few issues with the structure of the story that kept this from being a perfect story for me.
