I am being held against my will to complete this original book tag in honor of the Council of the Ninja Magic Conjuring Cats. Sensible because they are more popular than I. Non-sensical (and in my favor) because they can’t read. I’m not pushing it too much, though. I’m sure there are spies on the inside community. Yeah. I’m looking at you, Leah.
In a summer of incredible Adult Psychological Thrillers, His And Hers, By Alice Feeney hits the mark and stands tall among them. It also continues in the long line of authors that are a first to me but not the world. PS. I may have cried of fear… -_-
Whoever he is that may have started it, best be sure that someone in this dysfunctional disaster of a family is going to finish it. Who lives? Who dies? Who tells the story? Only Samantha Downing knows that. READ THE BOOK.
Liam and I made a signed a (broke my bank) strict modeling contract regarding today’s July Unplugged Unboxing. Pavel and Gomez were to feature with Liam there to supervise and provide for their needs. Quick, in and out session. Yeah. No. I may not be a cat but whatever extra lives I have are gone now.
Cut to the Bone is the third installment in Ellison Cooper’s Agent Sayer Altair series, but it works as a stand-alone, as well. I haven’t read the first two books and I didn’t miss a beat. It features a Black, female FBI Agent, a Gay counselor (former famous cook) with a three-legged therapeutic dog, and an amputee data investigator that is a cinnamon roll! Thrilling, educating, and fun… except for the part where a busload of students are kidnapped by some guy.
Recently, I tweeted that characters in fantasy novels should never beg the question, “how could things possibly get worse,” because chances are authors had an answer. Turns out that tweet is not genre-specific.
Not a complete list by far, this is a list of ten upcoming releases by Black authors that I am looking forward to that are within my genres and interests. There are tons more within the YA/Adult contemporary, romance etc.. that you should definitely look for and check-out! In the meantime, here is a list of ten to keep an eye out for, stick them on your Goodreads list or better yet, order them now! There is also lists of Black owned book stores for additional support of any bookish buys.
Seven Lies was mediocre at best until the end and that just threw it into the deep end of the great salt lakes.
I said what I said.
You are invited to the wedding of the year. If you are smart? You won’t RSVP.
Hold on to all your internal organs, The Split by Sharon Bolton, is going to screw you around so much that you won’t know your kidney from your esophagus.
Christian White exceeds expectations with Wife and the Widow, follow-up to award winning debut Nowhere Child- Released January 2020
Facts are everything to Rowan, main character in Ruth Ware’s latest novel, Turn of the Key. In honor of her, let me state these facts very clearly, up front:
Forget the unreliable narrator. Be prepared to become the unreliable reader.
In a market currently saturated with witchy themed, and excellent witchy themed books, at that, it takes a lot to stand up to the competition. A Wicked Magic by Sasha Laurens is failed by a trite, overdone and unoriginal ending. Then there are the characters… Lord. These characters, though.
For Pavel, For everyone- A reprise of the CNMCC tag. In memorial, tribute, and love to floppy ears, the heart of the CNMCC. And thank you to everyone on here, on twitter (publically and DM). Just like Pavel, you are all my sunshine.
I need something to tide me over between Ruth Ware’s Turn of the Key and the upcoming One by One… I give you In A Dark, Dark Woods
