This is the first time I‘ve read this author and it was a really good story! Very atmospheric with dual timelines. This is a first in a series and I believe that the series is complete. Haunting and a whodunnit. Yes please. Also this one‘s available free with the KU program. #bookspin #scarathlon #TeamMonsterMash @TheAromaofBooks @StayCurious

I‘m slowly making my way through SK‘s backlist and selected this “vampire” read for #scaralthon I started this Saturday and finished it this evening this #chunkster was quite the page turner. I can see how this one terrified one of my friends when she read it as a kid. #TeamMonsterMash. This read is my October #bookspin book as well! @StayCurious @TheAromaofBooks

Although this reads as a research book (dry reading if you‘re not a history/biography buff) was in fact very interesting for me and I learned a great deal. The horror that this individual wrought is unbelievable. A monster can hide easily behind a benign face #scaralton #TeamMonsterMash #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks @StayCurious

I just returned from NOLA on a late birthday/research trip and picked up this little gem. This is a great easy read but so full of the flavor of the French Quarter to include some of its haunted history. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read.

DanaManiac Cool! We were just there for our anniversary and stayed in the French Quarter. It was my first time in NOLA and I can‘t wait to go back! ❤️ 2d
KristiAhlers @DanaManiac I get back to NOLA at least once every year. This time around we did more tours than before but that‘s because I needed info and a sense of setting for my book. I‘m sad each time I have to leave that city! 💜 2d

This was such a good book but, y‘all that ending…I don‘t know if I want to scream with frustration or embrace the whole…I didn‘t see that coming! In any event it‘s a dark MC romance with a great deal of twists and turns. #LittensLoveRomance

I picked this one up whilst here in NOLA. Although it‘s not making my keeper bookcase it has great world building and is a solid start to this series. If you like vampires and a not terribly perfect characters you‘ll enjoy this.

This is book one in a new series. A lot of world building but I‘d like a little more background on the characters. There‘s plenty of spice here and it should be noted this is a dark RH romance. Willow is definitely a FMC I‘m willing to take the journey with. Does end in a cliffhanger. #LittensLoveRomance

Well this book has with out a doubt solidified my fear and loathing of clowns. Thank you, Mr King. This one took me the better part of three weeks to read because 1) hello it‘s over 1k and a chunkster and 2) clowns. Yeah I read this during the day. Sorry not sorry. I can understand why he‘s a horror go to author.

Aida was such a brat. I really had a hard time connecting to her or even liking her. This love hate thing between her and Callum eventually got to a point I wanted to see how it ended but barley.

Ugh I‘m so conflicted with this one. I honestly got to the point where the catty behavior of the FMC got to the point where it was too much. And the insta one min I loath you the next min we‘re supposed to believe they cared for each other was just too random for me. #LPMBC #littensloveromance ⭐️⭐️ read

My heart has been heavy since the passing of Queen Elizabeth. Having had the honor of having called England home for three years and we were there to see her celebrate her Golden Jubilee I decided to honor her and read this biography. Very through with a wonderful collection of photos. A wonderful read for any Anglophile.

So this is one of those books that you either LOVE. Or HATE! First off this is dark. I mean midnight black dark. It‘s got a very gothic vibe from the setting to the characters. It‘s spicy and at times incredibly disturbing. This won‘t be for everyone. It took me the better part of a week to finish it. Needed a break at times. Mind the TW‘s. #littensloveromance

More like pretty awful. I like a broken character as much as the next. And I‘m ok with age gap romances. But this…got to the point I didn‘t care. And the romance was eww even though the FMC was of legal age. Bailed on this. Not getting the great reviews on Amazon at all. #balletread
