ARC Review: That Weekend by Kara Thomas

That Weekend by Kara Thomas is an expertly plotted and gripping thriller that will take you on twists and turns you’ll never see coming. Honestly, this is one of the best books I’ve ever read and I can’t wait for you all to read it!

“You can’t go back.”

I’m a huge fan of Kara Thomas (I’m currently working on her backlist) and I’ve been anxiously awaiting her latest YA thriller since the teaser trailer was released back in September. When I won a giveaway for an annotated ARC, I think I transcended to another plane of existence. After reading it? I’m now dead. This is my ghost typing a review.

ARC Review: Dead Dead Girls (Harlem Renaissance Mystery #1) by Nekesa Afia

I’m a simple gal, I see this on Twitter and immediately add the book to my TBR: “if you want a jazz age murder mystery starring a tiny, tired lesbian, look no further than DEAD DEAD GIRLS.” And let me tell you: this debut historical mystery did not disappoint! With an amazing atmosphere, complex characters, and engaging plot, I devoured this book in two sittings and can’t wait for Louise’s next adventure.

ARC Review: The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin

The Nature of Witches is pitched as Practical Magic meets Twister, and goodness does it deliver! Action-packed but full of heart, it’s a love letter to nature and a journey to loving yourself and I adored this debut fantasy so much. There’s still time to pre-order a copy and help combat climate change — a tree will be planted for every book preordered!

ARC Review: A War of Swallowed Stars (Celestial Trilogy #3) by Sangu Mandanna

Friends, it’s been three weeks since I read and was destroyed by A War of Swallowed Stars. Emotional devastation wormed its way into my life with the conclusion of the Celestial Trilogy and to be honest? I’m okay with that because I love these characters so much and am thankful for the time I had with them. (Yes, Esmae and Sybilla and Max are all real to me, and I won’t be accepting criticism at this time.)
