Vox – Review

"It's the little stuff I miss most: jars of pens and pencils tucked into the corners of every room, notepads wedged in between cookbooks, the dry-erase shopping list on the wall next to the spice cabinet." One day, one by one, men went into the homes of every American, and silenced women. A simple device, [...]

It Takes Death To Reach A Star – Review

Thank you to TLC Book Tours for including me on this blog tour! "The streets are dark and cold, shadows upon shadows concealing the horrors of Etyom.

Tuesday’s With Jena: Meet Aarika!

Another Murdering Monday has passed my lovelies! And that means ***enthusiastic trumpeting*** it's time to meet another awesome 'grammer of the books!

Morning Star – Review

Here's the deal Howlers! This is the third book in a trilogy, so this review will contain spoilers from the first two books. It can't be helped so stop whining, you gorydamn Pixies. To be perfectly honest darling, if you haven't read this series by now, you are never going to earn your scar at [...]

Red Rising – Review

"I would have lived in peace. But my enemies brought me war." Anyone who has known me at all, for any time, during the last two years, has probably had me try and push this book on them. I mean, it's pretty bloodydamn amazing. As I've pushed it and raved about it and wanted to [...]

2018 – We have plans!

Last year I sat down around this time, give or take a few days, and started this blog. When I first started, I wasn't exactly sure what this space was going to be. I knew I wanted to explore my writing more, and I wanted to start reviewing books. But I didn't really know what [...]
