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.

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...

Halfway to the Grave Re-Read Recap Thread!

Halfway to the Grave Re-Read Recap Thread! Re-reading Jeaniene Frost’s Halfway to the Grave was just what I needed this month.

I know some of our reviewers have. Below you’ll find some of the VBC staff’s reactions to...
