IT’S HERE!!! If you’ve read ALARUM then you’ll probably understand why readers put in a request for a novella to give us more time with Fury & Riker. And Talis delivered! Keep reading for more on the novella plus an excerpt!
If you haven’t read ALARUM yet then check out my post here to read more! I strongly suggest reading the novella after you’ve read the main book since this is a companion story that takes place within a 3-year gap of time and will definitely spoil things (and might not make quite as much sense) if you haven’t read the book first.

War (The Four Horsemen #2) by Laura Thalassa (2019)
NA Fiction | Apocalypse | Romance | (TV-MA)
“They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all.
The day Jerusalem falls, Miriam Elmahdy knows her life is over. Houses are burning, the streets run red with blood, and a traitorous army is massacring every last resident. There is no surviving this, especially not once Miriam catches the eye of War himself.

Fantasyland #1-3 by Kristen Ashley (2011)
Fiction | Fantasy Romance | (TV-MA)
I decided to do a mini review for the series, although I’ve only read 3 of the 5 books in the series (I’m just not much interested in the other two), rather than a separate post for each. But I’ll list each book individually below with a link to my Goodreads review for it beneath if you’re interested in hearing my thoughts about a specific book in the series. Continue reading
I’ve read all of Peckham and Valenti’s books so I was thrilled when I found out that they would be teaming up to write a new series that blended their respective genres and even more excited when they sent me eARCs to review! Normally I’d write an individual post for each book as it’s released but since this will be a binge-release and I’d been given the opportunity to read them all at once I figured I’d save us all the time and give you my non-spoiler thoughts on the series as a whole! If you enjoy the dark allure of vampires, the thrill of unexpected romance, as well as the rush of dystopian rebels, then you really ought to check this one out. Keep reading for my review and more on each book plus the authors! Continue reading
A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi (2018)
YA Fiction | Contemporary Romance
“It’s 2002, a year after 9/11. It’s an extremely turbulent time politically, but especially so for someone like Shirin, a sixteen-year-old Muslim girl who’s tired of being stereotyped.
Shirin is never surprised by how horrible people can be. She’s tired of the rude stares, the degrading comments—even the physical violence—she endures as a result of her race, her religion, and the hijab she wears every day. So she’s built up protective walls and refuses to let anyone close enough to hurt her. Instead, she drowns her frustrations in music and spends her afternoons break-dancing with her brother. Continue reading

“There are worse things than death. Things that lurk in the shadows and slip into your dreams. Things that have no business existing. Things that once slept … but have now awoken.
For Callypso Lillis, the fae magic that now runs through her veins is equal parts curse and good fortune. For the very thing that bonds her to Desmond Flynn, the King of the Night, also makes her vulnerable to the Thief of Souls, a man who wants to break the world … and Callie along with it. Continue reading
