Book Review: When They Come for You: How Police and Government Are Trampling Our Liberties – and How to Take Them Back

The title alone is a mouth full. If you don’t think that you need to read this book, then you aren’t paying attention. It’s not a conspiracy theory book or some prepper manifesto. It is a study of actual events that have happened in the US in recent history. Well written, well researched, I’ve got…

Book Review: PumpkinHeads

Better than candy. Well, maybe not peanut butter cups. This short and sweet graphic novel takes place at a Pumpkin Patch, where Josie and Deja work each Halloween season. If you are trying to grab on to the last bit of Halloween magic, this is precisely the right book. Next year they’ll both be at…

ARC Review: Safe Harbour

Luckily, it was available online from my library with no wait, and I was able to get immediate gratification. It’s the last of my non-Cybils reading for awhile. Anyhow, if you are looking…

When Jo followed her ambitions to New York City, she never thought her career in journalism would come crashing down, leaving her struggling to stay afloat in a gig economy as a prep cook…

Book Review: Finding Christmas

Dipping my toe back into the Romance genre again and I couldn’t be more pleased with this go around. This is another book that reads like a Hallmark Christmas movie. Emmie spends a lot of time setting up a treasure hunt type challenge for her current boyfriend, Grant. Although, in my estimation, he put Emmie…
