#NSR22
I loved this #CozyMystery! It was a great balance of plot and character development. The mix of small town murder, charming characters, and mouth watering foodie moments is just right. I'm a life long mystery lover, but I haven't really enjoyed the genre in recent years, (definitely a me problem, lol) but I really got into this one. Also - I am definitely going to be trying the recipies in the back of the book! The excitement is real!

#NSR22 #DarkRomance @Nessavamusic
Shockingly good. One of my favorite reads of the year even! This Serial Killer x FBI profiler romance is more than I ever expected! Especially since it‘s only novella length, ST Abby (fantastic pun btw) did an expert job layering information and character building into the details as this story moved along. While Dark romance isn‘t really my thing, I‘ll definitely have to read the rest of this particular series!

Nessavamusic Yay! I‘m glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. 1w

Literally read this in a 24hr period. I loved all of it and will probably read it again before the end of the year. Since this is the 13th book in the series it‘s difficult to talk about in a non-spoiler way. But if you‘re looking for a gateway book into autumnal feels this year, this would be a great way to kick off the pumpkin spice season!

#NSR22 #SciFi #SpaceOpera
A “Why Choose” “Jane Austen in Space”, this is the first part of a longer story (1 of 3 - I think.) So we end on an HFN rather than an HEA. The female MC feels a bit more removed and distant than I prefer and the space portion of this space opera is a bit light, but I feel like both of those things might change as the books progress? Either way, I feel lukewarm about this one and might or might not read further. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Nessavamusic I had similar feelings about this one 1mo

It‘s kinda shocking how much Willow Scarlett was able to pack into so few pages! This quick burn enemies to lovers was done right! Two very different people with very different ideals find common ground while burning up the sheets! The POV MC was kind of a difficult pill for me at first, but he grew and changed to something truer to himself and that was part of the joy of this book! The other MC is a firecracker and I couldn‘t get enough of him!

I‘m having mixed feelings about the end. I‘m definitely leaning toward positive feelings. But I think I need to reread this one down the line to sort those feelings. Ultimately, here‘s what I came away with:

*This book made me laugh a lot.
*It made me smile even more
*And it left me thinking.

Any more details than that feel like spoilers. And if you want those spoiler details, I‘m happy to chat about them in the comments with spoiler settings.

julesG I agree to your three points. It made me think, too. And laugh! 1mo

I made it through the 1st third of this book, but it took me a week to even get that far. Because it was so boring. None of the characters were interesting enough to feel invested in either their death or survival. It was all very surface level bad to meh people going through the motions of the day. By the time I bailed the second death had taken place. There were no thrills. No chills. No camp. No reasons to care if anyone lives or dies. #NSR22

Nessavamusic What a bummer! 2mo
ValkyrieAndHerBooks @Nessavamusic yeah…I‘m definitely on the look out for a slasher/campy horror to redeem this experience. Still feeling like I‘m very much in a horror mood though! 2mo

This #GothicHorror met all my expectations and more. This truly haunted ghost story echoes parts of Daphne du Maurier‘s Rebecca, but walks it‘s own path. Set in the wake of the Mexican War of Independence, the complex web Beatriz, new mistress of Hacienda San Isidro, finds herself in is far more fraught than she ever thought it could be. She will face the malevolence in her new home with the help of an unusual priest.

Just started my #GothicHorror read for #NSR22 I‘m only 4 short chapters in and the vibes are strong with this one! It‘s already very atmospheric and I‘m rooting for this scrappy soul. And really, you can‘t get a more gothic start to a marriage than this!

July 2nd and I maybe already found my #FaveOfTheMonth? And it‘s a #SnowedIn book? 🤷🏽‍♀️❄️😎 A compelling combination of sweetness and sharp edges. The first book I‘ve read in a while that just sucked me in, I was late to work because of this book, lol. #NoRegrets Full of those moments that feel out of time and space that leave the characters slightly less the people they thought they were just a moment ago, and more the people they actually are.

The magic felt so real and possible. The Bend feels like a place I would love to live. I might find myself rereading this book just visit the Bend again. As a nearly 40 year old woman reading a sapphic YA supernatural horror, I vacillated between how this would‘ve impacted a younger me and how much adult me just wants to hug these girls and keep them safe. 5/5✨

I hope you had a fabulous February. Mine was kinda rocky - but my reads were great anyway! Somehow, there are zero books from Lily Mayne in Litsy‘s library? But the first book in her Monstrous series, Soul Eater, was my favorite read this month. It‘s somehow both a cozy romance and a post-apocalyptic monster romance? And I ate it up! I loved it so much, I‘m currently 5 books into the series. I definitely recommend these books! 5/5✨

This is a haunting story that will keep you thinking about it long after you‘ve finished reading it. May last update holds true. The prose are beautiful & creepy. The horror elements are visceral. The sapphic witchy vibes are exactly what I hoped for. The end is satisfying. There was a moment I worried the twist was tired one - but it‘s been spun into something new and I enjoyed it in the end. CWs in comments as a spoiler - no actual spoilers.

The prose are beautifully creepy. The horror elements are visceral, hooking into your subconscious and lingering on the edges of your conscious mind. The sapphic witchy vibes are exactly what I hoped for. I trust Claire Legrand to deliver an epic end!🤞🏼

The Northanger Abby quote at the beginning sets the tone and is instantly delivered on. The ridiculousness abounds! It‘s delicious! Nearly the entire cast of characters is queer and I love it! The tongue in cheek humor is perfection. This road-trip romance is a rollicking good time filled with sweet moments, sexy times, and sets a very dense Duke on the road to self discovery and epic love.

Kicking off the year with a pretty great reading month! (The page for The MissingPage remains missing, lol 😂) I definitely leaned hard on some favorite rereads in the first half of the month. I regret nothing. 😊 I posted the review for my favorite January read a few days ago - the big take away being that it‘s a sweet, nuanced romance - wrapped in a cozy, Agatha Christie-esque, mystery. It builds beautifully on the previous book and ups the ante

silentrequiem Which was the DNF? 8mo
ValkyrieAndHerBooks @silentrequiem I didn‘t include it in the graphic. It was actually a non fiction book I‘ve been working my way through for months and this was the month I gave up! It‘s a great writing craft book but I was trying to read it in the wrong format for me. I‘ll probably try to pick it up again down the line in audio. Non fiction always works better for me in audio. 8mo

I burned through this book in under 24 hours. It was so good to finally revisit the IAD-verse with a new story. And Munro was even better than I expected. This is probably one of the most thoroughly satisfying books in the series. Definitely the most cozy installment in IAD, on the Kresley Cole scale, at least. If you aren‘t a KC fan, you probably wouldn‘t call this cozy, lol.

Still no page for The Missing Page, so I‘m posting my review here:

Oh my goodness, I really enjoyed this cozy romantic mystery! What seems like a straight forward mystery is complex & has wonderful resolutions. Their romance has so many sweet nuances & quietly explosive emotions. With a slower beginning that subtly snow balls into briskly paced revelations, this book is even better than Hither, Page. I look forward to future rereads with relish!

ValkyrieAndHerBooks Is it too much Dad Joke Energy to point out that it‘s funny that the *page* for, The Missing Page, is *missing*? 😂 IDK, but it made me laugh. 8mo

So we went on vacation and I can confirm, these books travel well! This is my 6th or 7th reread, maybe? So here‘s a general, non spoiler over view of the series so far: Volume One will wreck you. Volume Two will make it all better! And Volume Three does both. Volume 4 dives deeper. I don‘t suggest you read Volume One if you can‘t immediately jump into Volume 2! The tears were real! This series definitely makes my heart ache in the best ways!

I love this series on WEBTOONS and I was beyond ecstatic when I found out it was going to be physically published! You can read everything that‘s available on WEBTOONS, but it‘s definitely worth owning physically if it‘s something you can afford. Plus you get a previously unpublished chapter that was cut for pacing purposes but makes for a great Easter Egg! Definitely check CWs - but it's all very thoughtfully and well done, and worth the read.
