Starling House


If you're a fantasy/magical realism lover looking for a captivating read with lyrical prose, you won't want to miss this one.


The Invisible Hour


While this one may not be for everyone, Hoffman's latest novel absolutely swept me off my feet.


The Vaster Wilds

The Vaster Wilds

One of the most breathtaking yet blistering reads of the year. A must not miss for those who like enduring stories.


The Princess


Wendy Holden is an auto-buy author for me, so this did not disappoint. I couldn't put this book down.

Buy vs Borrow

Canary Girls


Not at all what I hoped it would be. A friendship story that some might enjoy, but it was lost on me.


Love, Holly


Meh. Of the Emily Stone I've read this is my least favorite. It was enjoyable, but a bit far-fetched with not much romance.


Talking at Night


A stunning piece of literary fiction I will not soon forget.


Before We Were Innocent


Nope. Toxic friendships and co-dependency are not my cup of tea.


A Lady's guide to fortune Hunting


OMG I didn't know I needed this book until I read the first few chapters. Fun from the first lines.


The Roaring Days of zora Lily


I will read anything she writes. Literally anything.
