🎧 The Lost Ticket by Freya Sampson @SampsonF @KatharineMcEwan @HelenLloydAudio @BerkleyPub  @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I was excited to read The Lost Ticket based on the premise and some friend’s reviews.  My heart was on board for Frank to find the love he has searched for 60 years.  He also wants to keep living in his own home with the help of his carer, Dillon.  I expected his plight to […]

🎧 The Witch and the Tsar by Olesya Salnikova Gilmore @OlesyaAuthor #KatiaKapustin @AceRocBooks @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I enjoyed this sort of retelling of the story of Baba Yaga.  The Witch and the Tsar has the Russian mythology feel like books by Naomi Novik (Spinning Silver), and Katherine Arden (The Winternight Trilogy) and oddly, some of the folklore is even in the Robin LeFever’s Fair Assassins series.  Of course, this book has […]

Devouring Darkness by Chloe Neill @chloeneill @BerkleyPub @AceRocBooks

The Heirs of Chicagoland  series continues with  the next generation in Chicago.   I am enjoying learning about them as individuals. They have various strengths and issues.  The characters are developed a bit more in each book. We see Elisa having more political skills to work with other species.  I’ve been enjoying the stories and it […]

I wanted Marple: Twelve New Mysteries as soon as I heard of this anthology of short stories about Jane Marple.  It’s kind of like Jane Marple fanfiction by some well-known authors in the genre. I was happy to read stories by some favorite authors and also to try some authors, some of them I’ve wanted […]
