The Wicked Deep by Shea Earnshaw

I read this book in one sitting. I'm a sucker for a good witch story, and this plot was very compelling. I kept on trying to get different things done, but the story just wouldn't let me go. The book is dark and dangerous and mysterious - it's the perfect rainy day read.


Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo

All superheroes have an origin story, and Ulysses is no different. The poor squirrel never saw the vacuum coming. Fortunately for him, Flora Belle Buckman is well versed in superhero lore, and is the perfect person to save him and assist him as he is born anew.

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn

In 1947 Charlie St. Clair embarks on a journey to find her cousin, Rose, who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France. In 1915 Eve Gardiner gets a chance to prove herself: as a spy in France during the Great War.


Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful…

I wouldn't say "frightful", necessarily, more that I really wish I hadn't had to get into my car this morning. Because the road conditions are frightful. We got a huge dump of snow last night - we shoveled the driveway 3 separate times last night and when we woke up this morning there was a …

Books to Brighten Up Your Winter

Don't get me wrong, I love winter - but it's pretty dark. Literally. It's the darkest time of the year, especially if you live in the True North Strong and Free. So if you're feeling the need for some sunshine, warmth, or bright and happy fluffy feels, here are some recommendations. Fablehaven by Brandon Mull …

Holiday Rush Read-a-thon

I am so ridiculously behind on my Goodreads Reading Challenge it's not even funny. My goal for 2017 was to read 80 books. I was doing great until I got hired on in a full time position (which is great - I am NOT complaining that I finally have a steady job), but now I'm …

Books That Give Me Wanderlust

I don't think there's anything that ignites my longing to travel quite like a good book. I didn't travel outside North America until I was 21, so books were really the way that I got to "see" the world. Here are some of the books that have made me want to explore the world (and …
