Mini(ARC)-Review – The Governess Club: Claire by Ellie Macdonald

   I’m not much of an historical romance reader.  I like the idea of them – period settings and romance, it’s a winning combination for me – but for some reason or other I just never read them.  You can blame entering the blogging world and reading some of my… Read more »

ARC Review – Demon’s Curse by Alexa Egan

ARC Review – Demon’s Curse by Alexa Egan

I recently read Alexa Egan’s prequel novella, Awaken the Curse, and had a kind of apathetic take – loved the world, didn’t love the romance or the characters.  When it came to Demon’s Curse, the first full-length novel in Egan’s Imnada Brotherhood series, I was hoping to come out of… Read more »

Mini(ARC)-Review – Entwined by Kristen Callihan

Well, it’s official:  Kristen Callihan can do no wrong.  I love everything about her Darkest London series (which I have yet to review on the blog but I will, I promise!) – from the period setting, to the supernatural and paranormal elements she weaves in so seamlessly, to the strong… Read more »

Guest Post – Fortitude Scott’s Top Ten Horror Films for Halloween!

Guest Post – Fortitude Scott’s Top Ten Horror Films for Halloween!

  One of my favorite reads this year was ML Brennan’s debut, Generation V.  I think part of what won me over was Fortitude Scott, her film theory graduate student-vampire-hero with smarts and a self-depracating sense of humor.  I knew Fort could give us some good recommendations for films to… Read more »
