Book Reviews: The Spice Master at Bistro Exotique by Samantha Verant + A Mother Would Know by Amber Garza

book reviews the spice master at bistro exotique samantha verant a mother would know amber garza

Really, these two books have nothing in common, except their December publication dates. One is women's fiction/romance set in Paris that involves a ton of food and romance between two chefs. The other is a domestic thriller that involves mother-child relationships. They really shouldn't be paired together, except for the fact that one is by … Continue reading Book Reviews: The Spice Master at Bistro Exotique by Samantha Verant + A Mother Would Know by Amber Garza

Book Reviews: The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks by Shauna Robinson + Ship Wrecked by Olivia Dade

book reviews the banned bookshop of maggie banks shauna robinson ship wrecked olivia dade

Not only are both of these romances, though I'd argue the romance in the first one was much weaker and it really should be women's fiction, but these two are also the only two NetGalley books I have that are publishing this month. How that happened, I have no idea, but I guess I'm just … Continue reading Book Reviews: The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks by Shauna Robinson + Ship Wrecked by Olivia Dade

Book Reviews: The City Beneath the Hidden Stars by Sonya Kudei + The Prophet Paradox by Danny Tuttle

I must say neither of these books were my cup of tea, exactly. The first I received via NetGalley because I was intrigued by it's inspiration from Croatian mythology and history, but it felt like it threw in too many things and lacked the adult book feeling, leaving me thinking this was written for a … Continue reading Book Reviews: The City Beneath the Hidden Stars by Sonya Kudei + The Prophet Paradox by Danny Tuttle

Book Reviews: In the Shadow Garden by Liz Parker + Spells for Forgetting by Adrienne Young

It turns out these two books have far more in common than I thought when I requested them from NetGalley. I wanted to read In the Shadow Garden because it reminded me of Garden Spells and I requested Spells for Forgetting because I was curious about the author. Turns out they both have magic, mystery, … Continue reading Book Reviews: In the Shadow Garden by Liz Parker + Spells for Forgetting by Adrienne Young

Book Reviews: The Boy with the Bookstore by Sarah Echavarre Smith + All Dressed Up by Jilly Gagnon

Since I read far faster than I write reviews, I've found myself working to pair up certain books. Sometimes they're in the same genre, sometimes they share a theme. Considering The Boy with the Bookstore is a romance about a couple getting together and All Dressed Up is a mystery about a couple trying to … Continue reading Book Reviews: The Boy with the Bookstore by Sarah Echavarre Smith + All Dressed Up by Jilly Gagnon
