October plans

I have been avoiding making TBRs recently. They stopped working for me. I’m struggling with reading this year, so it’s just easier to read whatever happens to tickle my fancy at the time. But this month I wanted to get into the Halloween spirit (also something I have never really done before) and read something a little scary. I feel like I need to preface this with I’m a total sook and normally avoid anything I think will be scary and I did have to sleep with the light on once or twice while I was reading IT.

How easily was I influenced this month – Self-Published Fantasy Month Edition.

I love Self-published fantasy month. I always come across new authors and books that seem right up my alley and this September was no different. In fact, I think I added more books to my kindle than the previous two combined. A big reason was the fantastic content produced by the team behind the Self-Published fantasy month. If you haven’t checked out all of the interviews, guest posts and reviews, click HERE. You won’t regret it. Your bankcard might be a little lighter by the end though.

So without further ado here are a few of the books I picked up this month. Continue reading “How easily was I influenced this month – Self-Published Fantasy Month Edition.”

The Door and Other Uncanny Tales by Dmetri Kakmi

I’ve had a weird hankering for horror recently (very unlike me) and as I do in times of book need, I turned to NetGalley. Imagine my excitement when I got approved for The Door and Other Uncanny Tales. I’ve been obsessed with short stories lately so this collection was perfect.

The Door contained some brand new stories and a couple of previously released tales. Continue reading “The Door and Other Uncanny Tales by Dmetri Kakmi”

What Makes A Witch by Linnea Capps

Cute, quirky, endearing and heart-warming, these are just some of the terms I would use to describe this wonderful story of discovery and self-acceptance.

What makes a witch by Linnea Capps Synopsis – Greer is a young rat thrown to a cruel world. Living on the streets, he finds sanctuary with Mistress Addison, a witch and enemy of the Grand Coven. Though only women can control the power of the ley lines, Mistress Addison defies those rules and agrees to take the young rat on as her apprentice. Starting his journey, Greer finds himself learning for more about his own identity than how to cast spells. Follow him and see what his path unfolds in What Makes a Witch!

May Day by Josie Jaffrey

Blog Tour

May Day CoverSynopsis – If the murderer you’re tracking is a vampire, then you want a vampire detective. Just maybe not this one.

It’s not that Jack Valentine is bad at her job. The youngest member of Oxford’s Seekers has an impressive track record, but she also has an impressive grudge against the local baron, Killian Drake.
When a human turns up dead on May Morning, she’s determined to pin the murder on Drake. The problem is that none of the evidence points to him. Instead, it leads Jack into a web of conspiracy involving the most powerful people in the country, people to whom Jack has no access. But she knows someone who does.
To get to the truth, Jack will have to partner up with her worst enemy. As long as she can keep her cool, Drake will point her to the ringleaders, she’ll find the murderer and no one else will have to die.
Body bags on standby. Continue reading “May Day by Josie Jaffrey”

What I’ll be adding to the TBR next…

4 self-published fantasy books that are calling my name.

My tbr is a mammoth thing, it has taken on a life of it’s own and if I hadn’t started reading on my kindle, it would have probably filled my house and suffocated me. I don’t let that stop me though, I add to my book collection way to often. So I thought I would give you a look at the books I’m hoping to add to my collection soon.
