Hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea, Tuesday Intros shares the first paragraph of a book I’m currently reading, which at the moment, is Greener Pastures by Michael Wehunt, a really great spooky read with really vivid imagery.
While I love fantasy the most as a genre, I have a real strong affinity for all things family drama. Dark family secrets that tear families apart and leave either the reader or a new generation to uncover the twisted past that scarred every generation proceeding. Gothic Americana, a genre I truly hold dear to my heart, yet struggle to find good, recent representation from. Silver and Salt by Elanor Dymott, though not American, does succeed at capturing the very feeling I search for.
After being mildly disappointed with the previous book, I was hesitant on what I would get with Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs, her tenth in the Mercy Thompson series. The beginning did not alleviate my concerns in the slightest. However, I have to admit, by the end, I was entertained. It was an enjoyable experience and did hearken back to the earlier books in the series.
Top Five Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Lainey and Samantha over on the T5W goodreads group. This week’s prompt was:

I imagined meeting all sorts of new people, discovering great, new reads, listening to fantastically informative panels, and in the end, I think my high expectations were to blame for my utter disappointment.
I need to start off this review but profusely apologizing to the author, for I forgot about this lovely book until I started clearing out my emails. It’s a shame really, because I adored Beckoning Darkness by JD Stonebridge. It is exactly my type of tea! The pacing was fast, the action never dulled, and the characters had such a spark!
While I wasn’t a fan of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, I did fall in love with the pairing of Nesta and Cassian. I haven’t been able to get them out of my head. The songs I chose feel like they tell the story of their could-be relationship. Enjoy!
There are slight spoilers from the book and the pilot below. Read with caution. While flipping around through amazon prime video, I saw Richard Madden’s wonderful face. As it’s been a while since I’ve seen any of his stuff (he was Robb in the Game of Thrones series, also Ashley in Sirens), I decided to […]
