Book Breakdown 

Thanks to NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for my honest review. 

The civil war, the saddest war, the war that cost so many lives. So many people died on the battle field fighting for what they believed in, even though the South were a bunch of.... anyway. 

This books goes over 160 locations, showing the paranormal happenings there. It's very well put together and easy to read. It has some much info inside and yet it reads almost like novel. So easy to follow along. I loved that about this book. 

If you love the paranormal this one is for you! There's really nothing else I can say besides, but this book! 




Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can’t tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city itself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal registration act, times haven’t been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay low for a bit, and let the mortals calm down.

That’s when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black-and things really start getting ugly.

Chicago’s mayor insists it’s nothing to worry about, but Merit knows only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to change the very fabric of nature. She’ll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who’s behind this, and stop them before it’s too late for vampires and humans alike.



Book Breakdown 

Yes. Yes! YES!!!

There will be spoilers all in this review. You have been warned. 

I knew he'd come back somehow, I saw the cover of the last book and have been spoiled a little bit for the ending. I just didn't know how it wold happen. I couldn't stand not having Ethan in this book for the most part. I missed him so freaking much! 

I liked the plot in this one, it was a different then the rest but I loved how Merit was learning to be on her own or work with a new partner. Though honestly, I'm just so happy that Ethan is back. I feel the series can move forward now as this one in some ways felt like a filler book but I still loved it to pieces. This is the last audiobook with the narrator that I have fallen in love with which bites.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
