I couldn’t resist putting together a lil spotlight post for an upcoming release that I am SO excited for! Author Talis Jones has a new series coming out and this time she’s selected the urban fantasy genre. As you all know, I read almost every genre out there but when I need something fun, something to take me away from whatever is causing me stress in my life, I often turn to paranormal or urban fantasy (the difference between the two remains largely unknown to me, I admit). There’s just something about magic or the supernatural set in a world of Walmarts, roller rinks, and student loans that is fun to me. It’s our world, but with a little extra.Continue reading

Mercy Thompson #1-12 by Patricia Briggs (2006 – 2020)
Fiction | Paranormal Thriller
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). Continue reading
