Friday's TBR

Happy Friday! I didn't think it would ever get here.


I've been ignoring social media (always for the best), puppy sitting this handsome little devil, and reading some books. I've been not so great about writing reviews though but what else is new. At least I'm reading books so I suppose I have to be happy about that.


What's everyone reading this weekend?

I finished DEAD SILENCE by S.A. Barnes a week or so ago for the Ladies of Horror Fiction Readathon we have going on to celebrate Women In Horror Month and did actually write a short review so I'll try to get it posted next week. This is the ARC copy that I dropped in the Little Free Library. I hope someone finds it, reads it and gets addicted to spooky fiction!


If you'd like to join us for our April Readalong, we'll be reading The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris. You can find all the information HERE!


Get Out meets The Stepford Wives in this electric debut about the tension that unfurls when two young Black women meet against the starkly white backdrop of New York City book publishing.

Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagner Books. Fed up with the isolation and microaggressions, she’s thrilled when Harlem-born and bred Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. They’ve only just started comparing natural hair care regimens, though, when a string of uncomfortable events elevates Hazel to Office Darling, and Nella is left in the dust.

Then the notes begin to appear on Nella’s desk: LEAVE WAGNER. NOW.

It’s hard to believe Hazel is behind these hostile messages. But as Nella starts to spiral and obsess over the sinister forces at play, she soon realizes that there’s a lot more at stake than just her career.

A whip-smart and dynamic thriller and sly social commentary that is perfect for anyone who has ever felt manipulated, threatened, or overlooked in the workplace, The Other Black Girl will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last twist.


I'm hoping to get these finished up before Monday arrives but whenever I say this it never seems to happen so just pretend I didn't say that.


Memories are like ghosts. They linger in doorways, whisper with the howling wind when lightning strikes. They are the dark phantoms of my youth. My mind buried my memories for good reason, and I spent forty years believing I could escape them.

Until with one phone call, I found myself in my childhood home: Hardacre Priory.

I knew from the first step through the door that it was all over. The forgotten events of 1979 leapt to the surface and screamed their truths. Everything I thought to be true was a lie.

Entering those halls was an open invitation…
Not for me, but for every ill wish, vengeful thought, and dark deed that ever existed.




Will Darling is all right. His business is doing well, and so is his illicit relationship with Kim Secretan--disgraced aristocrat, ex-spy, amateur book-dealer. It’s starting to feel like he’s got his life under control.

And then a brutal murder in a gentleman’s club plunges them back into the shadow world of crime, deception, and the power of privilege. Worse, it brings them up against Kim’s noble, hostile family, and his upper-class life where Will can never belong.

With old and new enemies against them, and secrets on every side, Will and Kim have to fight for each other harder than ever—or be torn apart for good.




Have a peaceful weekend!
