Missing Review: Pros and Cons of Creepers in the Woods

Missing Review: Pros and Cons of Creepers in the Woods

The Good Things A Kelley Armstrong novel! She’s one of my favourite authors and I’m terribly behind on her novels, especially her newer YA stuff. They’re all really entertaining.

Vengeance Road Review: Revenge in the Wild West

Vengeance Road Review: Revenge in the Wild West

What a cracking Western! I’m not usually a fan of the Western setting, but Vengeance Road captured it perfectly – the quickfire gun draws, the sprawling Western setting, and a cracker of a heroine. It is written in such an authentic voice, with a strong heroine and an exciting adventure, that I ended up absolutely loving it. Written in […]
