Tuesdays With Jena: Meet Jenn!

This week, on #TuesdayswithJena we're chit-chat-rat-a-tat-tatting with Jenn with two N's Vining, or as she's known on the gram @jennsbookvibes. For the record, that's Vining with an N, not a K. Only I'm allowed to call her that. Although, I suppose that technically makes her Jenn with three N's, but only if you use her [...]

UNSUB – Review

"She buried her face in his chest, but the photos howled and clawed. She sobbed, clutching him, feeling him shake. The work of the killer everywhere. Mercury, the messenger. The Prophet."

Children Of Blood And Bone – Review

"It doesn't matter how strong I get, how much power my magic wields. They will always hate me in this world." I should start by saying, I'd been dying to get my hands on this book for months! I know, I know. Hyped books. But this one called out to me. And JUST LOOK AT [...]

The Hunger – Review

"Maybe that was the curse of these mountains -- they turned you mad, then reflected your own madness back at you, incarnate."

What is it they say about March? In like a lion, out like a lamb? Well, that certainly was the case in Las Vegas anyway. Cold weather and winds gave way to warmer weather and Spring, or the ten minutes we get here in the desert, appears to finally be here. 42/125 - Goodreads Challenge [...]

Instead of another YA box, there's a new box focusing on murdery, twisty reads with location themed boxes featuring small businesses. Welcome Paper Obscura!

"Both of us are sure we're right, but one of us is living in a world of make-believe right now." Strangers was the January book club read for the Instagram group BlackHeart Reads.

The Power – Review

"The shape of power is always the same." The Power is such an amazing book! Anyone who enjoys reading about the complexity and reality of power, both perceived and enforced, implied and physical, will enjoy this novel. Absolute power corrupts absolutely, and The Power shows us the harsh truth in those four words. We open with [...]

Instagram Algorithm – Shadowban

My last post on the algorithm talked about some of the basics. You can review all of that info HERE. I've resolved to fully educate myself on this Dark Magic, so today, I want to talk about the one thing that does seem to guarantee low engagement and performance on your posts. The dreaded SHADOWBAN.
