Review: The Mermaid by Christina Henry

With the success of the movie The Greatest Showman, which is about the famous P. T. Barnum, it comes with no surprise that I was super excited to find out that someone had written a book featuring him.

Don’t get me wrong, I love series, too. But I hate waiting for the next book to come out and sometimes I don’t get the time to read them. As I was searching for…

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

The cover was gorgeous and the synopsis was too good to pass up. So, here is my…

The King of Bones and Ashes by J. D. Horn

Books that involve witchcraft or covens are my thing. I will literally devour any book that mentions the word “witch” in it because I am THAT obsessed! I’m so glad I got to read an ARC of this book because it was such a fantastic read and fulfilled my need for dark stories! Summary (Goodreads): Magic is seeping out of the…
