4 out of 5 stars!

Phenomenal characters and outstanding world building!

Jake and Louie really set the bar in this story, these two will completely warm your heart. Brothers thrown into an awful situation but that’s okay! These two can hold their own and nothing will get in the way of protecting each other. Two extremely strong and forever loyal young men!

Elemental Links is packed full of incredible characters. Each story needs to have those strong main characters which of course this read does, but M.A. Leon truly shows her talent with creating characters when she created just as memorable supporting characters.

Jake and Louie are just starting to become more comfortable with their talents. Jake is becoming more and more skilled with his sword and Louie is learning to control his powers, when their whole world is flipped upside down. Desperate, full of so much unknown and with darkness at their heels they set out to meet their safe location. Packed full of excitement! Full of evil, magic, battles, warriors, friendship and some great humour. M.A. Leon has created this exciting world that reads so smoothly and fast paced you will get swept away.

I love a read balanced with great world building and wonderful characters! Elemental Links has both and so much more. I look forward to reading on in this world and learning more about these brilliant characters in book two: Blood Ties. (which is already out might I add, so you can always binge read!).

Thank you so much to M.A. Leon for sending me this copy to read and review. I look forward to reading on in book two!

The Slug Queen Chronicles is packed full of fairy-tale goodness! From Santa to the Tooth-fairy to The House with Chicken Legs… My son and I adored this read.

Be sure to have your concentration hat on when you read this fabulous series. The Slug Queen Chronicles introduces so many characters through-out and it may get a bit confusing at times but it is so worth it in the end.

S.O. Thomas has created a fascinating world with the most lovable characters. Cricket meets some of the most incredible creatures in this world and the most amazing friendships bloom throughout. I won’t say who our favourite characters were, because I don’t want to give anything away. You will just have to read it for yourself!

The Slug Queen Chronicles has got to be one of the most exciting, vivid, colorful worlds I have dived into for some time. Such a brilliant concept and S.O. Thomas executed it perfectly!

My son and I are in love with this world and all of it’s creatures! We both highly recommend this middlegrade read and are so thankful to S.O. Thomas for sending us an e-copy for review!

downloadIt’s New Year’s Eve 1980, and the students of DeAngelo High School are lacing up their skates for the All-Night New Year’s Lock-In at the Rollerville Roller Disco. Some of them just want to skate and dance the night away to the pounding disco music. Some want to pull a few pranks and have a few laughs. For others, like Dan Parsons, tonight is a chance to move on and forget about his ex-girlfriend, maybe even flirt with Denise, that cute girl behind the snack counter. It seems like nothing can go wrong.But there’s a massive blizzard raging outside, thick snow and ice are piling up against all the doors. There are those rumors that Rollerville was built over part of the old graveyard next door, and someone out there is watching. Also, a strange homeless man in the parking lot says that tonight will be the start of the so-called “Year of Blood.”A night of skating and New Year’s fun is about to turn into a night of violence and bloody mayhem in Disco Deathtrap.

A safe night turns to be a complete BLOODBATH!

Roubique has done it again! He has to be one of my all time favourite 80’s slasher authors.

Cameron has this way of creating these lively characters, memorable characters, puts them in this overwhelmingly terrifying situation. Some may give up, others will fight till the very end. Meanwhile the reader sits there biting their nails…. waiting to see who survives.

Like most 80’s slasher films you think you know who’s done it!….. But with Roubique’s evil masterpieces… you end up being so very, very wrong. Not only are you shocked on who it was, the murderers motives are gripping their backstories are so detailed. Cameron’s writing in itself is so extremely detailed. Be warned, these reads are not for squeamish people.

In Disco Deathtrap no one is safe! Only one way to find out who survives….

download (1)Ronnie has the perfect summer job at the Indian Hill Golf Course. All day he gets to ride around on mowers and golf carts, check out the beautiful drink cart girls, joke around with his best friend Mark, and get plenty of fresh air and sunlight.That all changes when a huge late spring hailstorm blows in one night, leaving the golf course in shambles. As they clean up all the limbs and downed trees, Ronnie and Mark learn about the Native American Kikawa tribe that was brutally massacred at the top of the hill near the seventeenth green, and the evil medicine man known as Chief Tomahawk who supposedly put a curse on the land. It seems that the curse may prove to be real as the golf course is dogged with bad luck, and a dark figure wearing a wooden Chief’s mask and a black-feathered headdress is watching them from the shadows.Now, in preparation for the biggest golf tournament of the year, Ronnie and the maintenance crew have to come in and work through the night. They are about to find out that Chief Tomahawk has returned, and he wants revenge for his slaughtered people.

The perfect summer job!… Or so Ronnie thought

Nightmares can hide anywhere… you never know when they will strike, perhaps for an awful revenge!

Golf Curse was such a wild ride! Indian Hill Golf Course really does sound like the perfect summer job, that is until the stories of the land being cursed starts to add up. Enough to terrify the believers anyhow… maybe not so much for the non-believers.

Again the detail in Roubique’s novels astound me. Each character is perfectly placed with a good amount of a background story, helping you decide who the trouble makers are and who the goody too-shoes are. I don’t know about you but I find myself already planning out who may be the first to go simply based on their personalities. Than comes in this whole story behind Indian Hill Golf Course and why they say it’s cursed.

They do say write what you know, which is exactly what Roubique has done. Having the knowledge from working at a golf course himself and man has it worked out for him.

Cameron’s work will keep your heart pounding. Be prepared!

An author I highly recommend across the board. Oh and I can’t forget! His mind blowing covers are his own incredible paintings.

5 out of 5 stars

Perfection! An anthology at its best!

Autumncrow is packed full of eerie goodness. Each story is so incredibly unique, some with a sweet underlining story that turns dark… others with a down right horrifying feeling throughout.

Chaney has created a bone chilling setting with some of the best characters. Each story will sink its teeth into you.

I couldn’t put Autumncrow down. Something about Cameron’s writing… I was completely immersed in this fictional town. One of the best parts was none of these stories were predictable, each had such an element of surprise.

I don’t think I could even tell you if I had a favourite, they were all so vivid and intense. Maybe my only negative to say is….. I just wanted more.

Cameron has impressed me yet again. I can not wait to see what he comes up with next.

Genre: Adult | Psychological Thriller

5 out of 5 stars

A psychological thriller at its best!

Your Move is intense.

It will have you on the end of your seat and your heart pumping.

Michelle blew me away with her writing style, she did so many things right. Not only did she dedicate the perfect amount of time to the plot, really building the perfect layout for the story line but Your Move is also extremely character driven. It’s not easy to get that perfect delicate balance of both worlds but Michelle nailed it.

thumbnail_IMG_3945Your Move will keep you completely engrossed throughout the whole read. Just as you are getting comfortable and really feel you know where the story is going, Michelle throws you for a complete spiral.

Claire will experience memories of her past or the story may jump from present to the future, yet you don’t get a full view into Claire’s history and why she’s hiding. You get that perfect tidbit here and there… Just enough to keep you gripping on… wanting more.

I admired Claire’s strength! I also adored some of the relationships that started throughout this novel, so heart warming and a large piece of the story you will want to cling onto.

Your Move is everything I could ask for in a psychological thriller. It will really mess with your mind. Be prepared!



Thank you so much to Michelle Young for sending me this copy for review.

Michelle is a Canadian author of two poetry books, Salt & Light (2017) and Without Fear (2019). Your Move is her debut novel.

What a fun read! Such a great concept!

A book about books. Something all of us bookworms can relate to and enjoy!

I found Suggested Readingย refreshing. With a well written plot and a character driven story it was a light-hearted read that touches on some heavy topics.thumbnail_IMG_3864

Clara’s passion for reading and her love for books was admirable. By starting the locker library she shared this love with others and impacted their lives greatly. What Clara may not have know was how much she was going to grow from this herself and the incredible friends she was going to make.

So many hidden messages within this text as well. Don’t judge people by how they look, the amount of money they have or the people they hang around with. You never know what’s going on inside peoples heads, they may surprise you. Also… never give up! When you have a passion fight for your beliefs whether you are right or succeed it’s all worth it.

Dave’s attention to detail with each book mentioned throughout Suggested Reading was impressive. You can see his time and dedication while writing his masterpiece. This only added to an already enjoyable read.

Suggested Reading also fits well with the “cancelled culture” currently circulating today.

All in all I did enjoy this book and would recommend you giving it a go. Besides I am sure you want to know just how Clara pulled this off…don’t you?

A Gentlewoman’s Guide to Murder by Victoria Hamilton

51tjECuN8KL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_

Scandal and slayings among Regency London’s elite

The shocking murder of Sir Henry Claybourne leaves Regency London shaken and horror-struck. But for genteel spinster Miss Emmeline St. Germaine, the crime slices far too close to home. Just hours before the knight’s death she held a dagger to him, threatening him to stay silent as she rescued a scullery maid he had procured for his pleasure.

Did the manโ€•or womanโ€•who murdered the knight know of her visit? Her secret identity at risk, her reputation and life in jeopardy, Emmeline must solve the crime or face scandalous exposure and ruination, or worseโ€•the hangman’s nooseโ€•for a crime she did not commit.

Ghosts of Gotham by Craig Schaefer

516SoYhVTCL

Irresistibly drawn to mysteries, if only to debunk them, reporter Lionel Page exposes supernatural frauds, swindlers, and charlatans. His latest case is an obsessionโ€”at least for an ancient and wealthy heiress: verify the authenticity of a lost Edgar Allan Poe manuscript circulating through New York Cityโ€™s literary underworld. But the shrewd Regina Dunkle offers more than money. Itโ€™s a pact. Fulfill her request, and Lionelโ€™s own notorious buried past, one heโ€™s been running from since he was a child, will remain hidden.

As Lionelโ€™s quest begins, so do the warnings. And where rare books go, murder follows. Itโ€™s only when Lionel meets enigmatic stranger Madison Hannah, his personal usher into the cityโ€™s secret history, that he realizes heโ€™s being guided by a force more powerful than logicโ€ฆand that he isnโ€™t just following a story. Heย isย the story.

Now that the true purpose of his mission is revealing itself in the most terrifying ways, it may finally be time for Lionel to believe in the unbelievable.

5 out or 5 stars

Starting Red I immediately started to feel my anxiety raise. Abigail gave me such an over whelming feeling of unease. That feeling quickly increased to panic and terror. When reading you can’t just simply cover your eyes during a scary part like you can during a movie.ย I found myself terrified to go on but yet needing to know how it ends.

Red kept me on the edge of me set and my heart pounding so hard, as if it was trying to leap right out of my chest.

Red certainly packs a haunting punch and will leave you completely filled with jitters. How it is even possible to deliver this much horror in a merely 51 pages is astounding!

Kelly’s writing will inject your brain with all sorts of new fears!

If your love is psychological thrillers, Kelly will easily become a new favourite.

A perfect read for around the Halloween season especially, if you are into that seasonal reading.

Enjoy!


And of course thank you all for reading.

5 out of 5 stars! – Incredibly charming!

I adore novels written in a past setting, exactly what I was expecting Courting Mr. Lincoln to be… since it’s based in the 1800’s, but this was completely different. Louis has written a book in the modern day, set in the past, yet reads as a genuine classic……Brillant!

Miss Todd is smart, independent and has such a strong knowledge of politics. Truly a well rounded young lady.

Lincoln’s also smart, determined and very hardworking. He has goals and is working towards them. Although he is missing proper manners and does not have the perfect gentlemen style, just yet. Lack of funds doesn’t help with that situation, but a great friend could become very helpful with that.

This is where Joshua Speed comes in. He is truly wonderful! (Spoiler… I think Speed wasย  my favourite character!).ย Speed is an incredible man, with so much warmth in his heart. Speed keeps a great pride for those he is close to, especially Lincoln.

Louis Bayard has created such a marvellous read! and I couldn’t be happier to have this wonderful addition to my shelves.

Courting Mr.Lincoln by Louis Bayard

When Mary Todd meets Abraham Lincoln in Springfield in theย winter of 1840, he is on no oneโ€™s short list to beย president. A country lawyer livingย above a dry goods shop, he is lacking both money and manners, and his gift forย oratory surprises those who meet him. Mary, a quick, self-possessed debutanteย with an interest in debates andย elections, at first finds him an enigma. โ€œI canย only hope,โ€ she tells his roommate, the handsome, charming Joshuaย Speed, โ€œthatย his waters being so very still, they also run deep.โ€

Itโ€™s not long, though, beforeย she sees the Lincoln that Speed knows: an amiable, profound man who, despiteย his awkwardness, has a gentle wit to match his genius, and who respects her keenย political mind. But as herย relationship with Lincoln deepens, she must confrontย his inseparable friendship with Speed, who has taught hisย roommate how toย dance, dress, and navigate the polite society of Springfield.

Told in the alternating voicesย of Mary Todd and Joshua Speed, and inspired by historical events,ย Courting Mr. Lincolnย creates aย sympathetic and complex portrait of Mary unlike any that has come before; aย moving portrayal of the deep and very real connection betweenย the two men; andย most of all, an evocation of the unformed man who would grow into one of theย nationโ€™s most beloved presidents.ย Louis Bayard, a master storyteller, deliversย here a page-turning tale of love, longing, and forbidden possibilities

The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms

Overworked and underappreciated, single mom Amy Byler needs a break. So when the guilt-ridden husband who abandoned her shows up and offers to take care of their kids for the summer, she accepts his offer and escapes rural Pennsylvania for New York City.

Usually grounded and mild mannered, Amy finally lets her hair down in the city that never sleeps. She discovers a life filled with culture, sophistication, andโ€”with a little encouragement from her friendsโ€”a few blind dates. When one man in particular makes quick work of Amyโ€™s heart, she risks losing herself completely in the unexpected escape, and as the summer comes to an end, Amy realizes too late that she must make an impossible decision: stay in this exciting new chapter of her life, or return to the life she left behind.

But before she can choose, a crisis forces the two worlds together, and Amy must stare down a future where she could lose both sides of herself, and every dream sheโ€™s ever nurtured, in the beat of a heart.

Hurricane Season by Nicole Melleby

For Figโ€™s dad, hurricane season brings the music.
For Fig, hurricane season brings the possibility of disaster.

Fig, a sixth grader, loves her dad and the home they share in a beach-side town. She does not love the long months of hurricane season. Her father, a once-renowned piano player, sometimes goes looking for the music in the middle of a storm. Hurricane months bring unpredictable good and bad days. More than anything, Fig wants to see the world through her fatherโ€™s eyes, so she takes an art class to experience life as an artist does. Then Figโ€™s dad shows up at school, confused and looking for her. Not only does the classย notย bring Fig closer to understanding him, it brings social services to their door.

As the walls start to fall around her, Fig is sure itโ€™s up to her alone to solve her fatherโ€™s problems and protect her familyโ€™s privacy. But with the help of her best friend, a cute girl at the library, and a surprisingly kind new neighbour, Fig learns she isnโ€™t as alone as she once thought . . . and begins to compose her own definition of family.

Nicole Mellebyโ€™sย Hurricane Seasonย is a radiant and tender novel about taking risks and facing danger, about friendship and art, and about growing up and coming out. And more than anything else, it is a story about loveโ€”both its limits and its incredible healing power.
