Everything Is Wonderful Now by Shane Blackheart
"No book needs to be perfect nor should be perfect, but this book is in the handful of books I'd consider near perfect.

The emotions, negative and positive, but all good, this book made me feel... I wasn't expecting it to be as witty nor as passionate" Read more of this review »

A wild ride with magic and demons, all while still finding time to discuss ace and aro feels 💜🖤💚
TL;DR review:

They Call Him Lucius by L.B. Shimaira
"Love, love, love this book. It's gruesome and you'll probably have to pause a few times to finish it, but it's very much worth it. A friend of mine and I even started a #luciuschallenge to see how many people will be able to finish and how many will " Read more of this review »

"Great collection

One of the best horror story collections I've read. The stories draw you in and are very entertaining . Would recommend to anyone who enjoys short story anthologies with quite a bit of gore."

This is the most amazing end to a trilogy I've read yet. Buckle up, as it's even wilder than the previous books! 🎢
TL;DR review:
It's not often a trilogy gets better with each book (all too often book 1 is the best), but I'd argue that for LESSER KNOW

This book made me sob almost non-stop for the second half--and I loved it.
TL;DR review:
Be prepared to have your heart ripped apart and your soul shred, because Etta's journey through abuse and recovery is terrifyingly realistic.

Longer, more in-depth
