Torn by Natalia Jaster

I am very lucky to be on Natalia Jaster’s ARC team but I honestly wasn’t expecting to get the chance to read Torn ahead of its release date (June 20th) because for some silly reason, I had it in my head that I was only on the team for her Foolish Kingdoms series! So when this little beauty found its way into my inbox last month I may have screeched […]

Touch by Natalia Jaster

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Natalia Jaster’s writing? It’s actually hard to believe Touch was her debut novel.

You know when you get a book that just speaks to you? You’re not even sure why but it just does? This is that book for me. Know Not Why is a charming, funny, surprisingly deep and moving story. It’s a book about sexual awakening but it is also a book about friendship. But I am getting ahead of myself here. First, a bit of background. I actually first read […]

Next Girl to Die by Dea Poirier

I am hugely fascinated by True Crime yet when it comes to reading fiction, crime is not a genre I naturally gravitate towards. I’m not sure why because when I do read crime fiction, I usually enjoy it quite a bit. The Next Girl to Die is the debut novel of author Dea Poirier and is the first in a series focusing around a detective called Claire Calderwood. my review […]
