The Lives of Saints

The Lives of Saints-pooledinkreviews-banner

Guess what! I succumbed to weakness and ordered a copy of Leigh Bardugo’s latest contribution to her Grishaverse, a collection of short stories called The Lives of Saints. It’s just so pretty and I couldn’t stop my curiosity from wanting to read these tales! If you’ve been curious about this one as well then keep reading this post where I’ll include info on what the book is about, my review, and a look at the artwork inside! And don’t worry if you have no idea what the Grishaverse is, I’ve included a bit about that as well. Continue reading

Mercy Thompson Series

Mercy Thompson Series

Mercy Thompson #1-12 by Patricia Briggs (2006 – 2020)
Fiction | Paranormal Thriller
5 stars

The Mercy Thompson series currently includes 12 books with the latest installment released this year (and I think there may be more on the way?) but for this review I’m only covering the series as a whole. I was able to get my hands on all twelve books from my State’s Digital Library but I thought it might be way too much to write out twelve entire individual reviews and figured I’d consolidate it into a series overview. There are also more books in The World of Mercy Thompson which expand the world to include Mercy’s first encounter with Adam and her new job as a mechanic as well as to follow a new pairing, Charles and Anna (also called the Alpha & Omega series).

The Others #1-5 by Anne Bishop (2013-2017)
Fiction | Urban Fantasy | Crime & Mystery
5 stars

Have you missed my ridiculously long and rambling reviews as I go on and on in either obsession, disappointment, or indifference?? Haha well fear not because I’m back with another review that I just couldn’t help but want to share on my blog despite my year of hiatus!

Today, I welcome you to the world of the Others. Dangerous shifters whom prey on humans like it’s Taco Tuesday, humans bold enough to try and overthrow the ancient beings whose land they want to claim, and a young woman with deadly secrets of her own yet an innocence in her heart that could change everything and become humanity’s only saving grace. This series of semi-standalone novels is an urban fantasy series wrapped up in a gritty crime and mystery veil with a bit of horror thrown into the mix and it’s something you won’t want to miss out on.
