Sometimes a straight top 10 (this was easier when they were all Chelsea’s picks 😉 ) and sometimes a top five from...

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. But there’s a problem with reading like that—if not enough people buy the series when it first comes out, there won’t be enough books to binge.

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...
