Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Huh. I’m not quite sure what I just read. It was a mash-up of several genres, including gothic, horror, mystery, LGBTQ romance and historical fiction. This is a unique book that won’t be for everyone.

Monstre: Volume One by Duncan Swan

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Holy hell – what did I just read?? This is a fantastic first book in a new apocalyptic Science Fiction/Horror book series. It has an explosive beginning (literally) and doesn’t let up until the frenetic cliffhanger ending.

Tools of Engagement (Hot & Hammered, #3) by Tessa Bailey

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This was a cute and easy Contemporary Romance that is the last book in a series. I have not read the first two books, but this can be read as a stand alone so it’s no problem to start with this one. I’m sure I missed a little bit of context, but overall, it did not affect my enjoyment of the book.
