A Holiday for Murder

It's hard to believe, but Christmas is only a few short days away! As part of this year's Christmas celebration, I've been spending the month of December reading a variety of books set around Christmastime and during the winter. Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to read Agatha Christie's A Holiday for Murder (which…

Get A Clue

Throughout the month of December, I've been spending quite a bit of time reading books set around the holidays or during the winter. One of the books that I decided to re-read this holiday season was Get A Clue, by Jill Shalvis. While Get a Clue is not a holiday-focused book, it does take place…

The Hunting Party

It is finally beginning to look like winter! While we've had a few snow flurries here and there, yesterday we finally got our first proper snow! Since I've always thought that snowy days are ideal for curling up with a good book, I decided to take the opportunity to spend the day wrapped up in…

The Midwife Murders

In a previous post, I mentioned that 2020 has been a good year for new books. There have been a considerable number of new titles that I have had the opportunity to enjoy this year, most of which have been excellent. One of the books I was really excited to read was The Midwife Murders,…

Kingdom of the Wicked

While the majority of 2020 has been nothing short of a dumpster fire, I do have to admit that this has been a good year for new books. Today we're taking another short break from my Readathon reviews to talk about one of the new titles I was most excited for this year, Kingdom of…

The Holmes-Dracula File

There's something very exciting about seeing an author tackle not just one, but two well-known intellectual properties...especially when the resulting novel is as fantastic as Fred Saberhagen's The Holmes-Dracula File. "It is with emotions doubly strange that I at last take up my pen to write the story involving the creature I have elsewhere referred…

Shinjū

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in the Dewey's 24 Hour Reverse Readathon. I had a tremendous amount of fun spending the day reading, and had a chance to read several fantastic books that have been sitting on my TBR shelves for quite some time. The first book I read during the…

Capturing the Devil

Whether it's in the form of a movie, television series, or book, I do love a good murder mystery! During the recent Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon, I had the opportunity to read the fourth (and final) novel in Kerri Maniscalco's Stalking Jack the Ripper series, Capturing the Devil. While I desperately want to talk about…

POPSUGAR Reading Challenge Update: Week Sixteen

Good morning, everyone! I woke up to sunshine this morning, and it's a welcome change after the insanity of the weather over the past couple of days. I guess nothing about 2020 should really be surprising to us at this point, but snow in the middle of April? Seriously? So weird. After two weeks of…

The Tiki Goddess Mysteries

A few years ago, my mum and I had the opportunity to fly out to the island of Kauai to attend my older cousin's wedding. We had a wonderful time at the wedding, which was one of the most beautiful celebrations I've had the privilege of attending, and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the island during our…
