    #FridayFeature Romancing the Dark in the City of Light by Ann Jacobus

    This week’s book is one I recently found at the dollar tree! Woot, $1. Admittedly, when i read the title i was kind of expecting….something dark….like a vampire romance. Turns out that it’s a regular romance… :/…not my favorite, but i will try to not be too prejudice. I’ve never heard of it and can’t find many reviews. Dang, those “beautiful cover” impulse buys are dangerous, lol. I probably wont start it for atleast a month though. Right now, I’m still reading Wildcat and Moby Dick & I have a few books due for review.

    Death By Pumpkin Spice by Alex Erikson

    This was a near perfect cozy mystery! It takes place at a Halloween party in a huge (haunted?) mansion during a thunderstorm. What else do you need really? About 80% of the characters are new to this story, so there were many many options on who the killer might be. There were hidden clues throughout that the narrator didn't actually explain, so if you are a seasoned mystery reader, you could probably solve the case before Krissy. This story also had a lot of action...which i found sort of interesting in a cozy mystery. Not sure I've seen a story structure quite like this before, but i really liked it.…

    A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

    I'd say overall this was a very good book. I thought i would have liked it more though since it cover topics from my major.... but overall i found it just ok. I think my main issue was that i found the story disjointed and didn't see what the first half of the book had to do with the main idea....not that I ever caught the main purpose. It sort of seemed like a meandering story of someones life and not really plot driven. With that being said though, I really love the glimpses into Grace's life. I think she is an interesting character. Towards the end, we did see…

    The Spook in the Stacks by Eva Gates

    I started this book a few days after finishing the book right before it in the series. I love how the story line just picks up without a huge gap. I feel like i was very privy to the events of the book since i just read the book before it. The characters, as usual, were great. They are very consistent from book to book and while there was mention of things from books i haven't read yet, it still seemed familiar and within characterization. I didn't really dislike any of the characters and thought they were all great. The only slightly annoying part was that the story was pretty…

    #CCSpin List – Number 21

    It’s spin list time! YAY! I’ve historically preformed horribly with these…i don’t think i’ve ever finished a spin book. Wow! But i still want to atleast participate. I’ve decided to theme my list with all scary books since the reading timeframe is October. That will def motivate me to read. Ive decided to choose seven books and randomize them into 20 spots. Not sure if this adheres to the rules, but i love this list! I’m hoping for Tenant of Wildfell Hall!
