I enjoyed the previous book, Dorothy Must Die, very much. As soon as I had the chance to read the next book, I snapped it up. I freely acknowledge that time and circumstances didn't allow me to read it as soon as I wanted to, but I was totally h

Light Runner surprises me. The story is told in an unexpected way, and it doesn't follow what I thought it would turn out. (My prediction was based on the synopsis, and I admit that I welcome that surprise.) Let's dig in.

NetGalley. Thanks for a copy.

This will be a short review.

Defender is a decent mystery book. It is one that will keep you interested, but it's not particularly memorable in any way. The mystery is of a dead girl in a wall, whose body disappears when T

On summer break and stuck at home?

Well, books clearly are your answer. And traveling across Europe (though in a book) is a great idea of a vacation. And Wanderlost contains a group of senior citizens, a case of impersonating another person (who

YABC.

I always love a good supernatural story about the apocalypse. And from Veronica Rossi? Now that must be a lovely gift from Santa, who is very early in the year. (Or late??? It depends on the way you see it. It could go both ways.)
