Posted June 26, 2017 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 8 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A big, bold and hysterically funny multi-generational family drama, with psychics and con men, and plenty of unexpected heart. It was true that he was unusually nostalgic for a kid, though what he pined for was a time before he was born. He was haunted by the feeling that he’d missed the big […]

Big thanks to Wunderkind PR and Serial Box for the chance to review this hysterically funny and geeky series!

After all, the covers scream “Contemporary chick lit!” which is definitely not my thing. But […]

STRANGE THE DREAMER by Laini Taylor – Review

The nitty-gritty: Magical and unique, this story takes the idea of dreams and nightmares to new heights, told in Laini Taylor’s trademark lilting prose. It’s always hard for me to squeeze non-review books into my reading schedule, so I was thrilled when a publicist offered me a copy of Strange the Dreamer, even though it […]
