Top 5 Urban Fantasy Series That Ended Too Soon

Top 5 Urban Fantasy Series That Ended Too Soon I love a good binge read, though I don’t get to do it as often as I did before I started reviewing.

So when you find a series you love, don’t wait to buy all the books, check them out from the library, and tell everyone you’ve ever met how much you love it. A...

Top 10 Books to Re-Read During the Holidays

Top 10 Books to Re-Read During the Holidays The week of Halloween I read a book that had been languishing on my Kindle for a while. It’s set in a small town as it prepares for its annual Halloween festival. I loved how the sweater weather and changing leaves mirrored real life—I felt like I was a part of the story. Then I realized that the book came out in July. Reading it then might have been a completely different experience. That got me...
