Though I wouldn’t say Sara Shepard is the best author, I’ve definitely read and enjoyed a few of her books. They can be a little ridiculous, but they’re generally easy reads. Wait For Me is a different type of story for Shepard. It is a reincarnation story, so I was definitely intrigued.
Thank you to Union Square and Co for allowing me to read this early through NetGalley. This was a quick read and the perfect break with all the fantasy I’ve been reading recently.
Casey Rhodes has many disguises, but as a 17-year-old sophomore in college and girlfriend of a highly eligible bachelor? She has to. So when she starts hearing voices, she runs to the seaside town of Avon, hoping to rest and reset without worrying anyone. But as the voices get worse, she starts to think she recognises people there, including Jake. They’ve never met before, but she swears there’s a connection, and he thinks so too. Casey and Jake decide to look into her memories together and to find out whose memories she actually has.

There are just some authors where you’ll pick up any book they’ve written. Ashley Poston is one of those for me. She’s written such variety, and when I read that her first adult book was going to be a ghost/living romance? I’ll admit, I was very much intrigued. This was a book I’d preordered, but I was so excited when I saw HQ was doing a blog tour for this one. I jumped at the chance, and I read this pretty soon after getting it.
I just couldn’t resist.
This book follows Florence Day, a ghostwriter who can no longer write romance after a bad breakup shook her beliefs. A new editor gives her the hope that she’ll be able to get an extension. But while Benji Andor might be hot, he refuses. When Florence thinks things can’t get worse, tragedy strikes, and she has to return home. The last thing she expects to see at her family home is the ghost of Benji at her family home’s front door. But he’s there, and in trying to figure out how to finish her book in the hope of helping him, she winds up falling for him.

I’ve made it very clear in the past that I’m British and still in the early stages of learning Japanese. But thanks to translation apps, I decided that I just had to read this middle-grade novel, despite being Japanese. Obviously, a translation app won’t translate perfectly, but despite that, I was still able to really lose myself in this story. I had the opportunity to read this book as an e-arc from NetGalley.
This book follows Michito and his father as they travel across the world for a series of paranormal incidents. All these incidents have been talked about in real life, so it could really strike something in the kids who read this. They’ll have plenty to look into if they want to.

I love getting emails asking if I’m interested in reviewing a book. It allows me to find books that I might not have stumbled across. Big Bad Me is one of those. I was a big fan of the paranormal fantasy craze in the 2000s and I was so glad to find a new book harking back to this craze.
In Big Bad Me, we follow sisters Evie and Katie Wilder, whose mum has recently disappeared. After a strange man tries to attack Evie, she realises she’s actually a werewolf. The two sisters run away looking for their mum and wind up in a guesthouse in the town their mum was last seen. He’s dorky hot, but there’s something strange about him, and when animal attacks are reported in town, he and the sisters look into what’s going on.

I’m back with another blog tour review! This time it’s for With Fire In Their Blood by Kat Delacorte through Write Reads Tours. I was hoping to get a copy of this at YALC but didn’t, so I was so happy to be able to get on this tour. It was a book I didn’t know what to expect, but if you’re looking for a book with 2000’s YA paranormal vibes but queer? You’ve got that here.
With Fire In Their Blood is set in the Italian city of Castello, where rival mafia clans divide the city and only come together to fight the Saints. People with magic. When Lilly arrives, she’s drawn to Liza, Nico and Christian in equal measure. But Lilly isn’t sure she can trust anyone. Especially not sure when she shows signs of being more than human.

I’m not exactly someone known for reading a lot of smutty romance, but when a book sounds this good. I can’t resist. I knew what I was in for when I picked this book up, and I was excited for it anyway. I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of this book thanks to the very lovely team at Black Crow PR and this tour has been put together by Random Things Tours. A big thank you to the both of them.
King of Battle and Blood is an adult fantasy romance. It follows a princess called Isolde, who when her country is entered by the vampire King, Adrian, agrees to be his wife for the sake of ending the upcoming war. She assumes she’ll fear him, but soon she’s more scared of how attracted she is to him and her growing understanding of the vampires than she is anything else.

If you know me at all, then you know that I absolutely adore Kelley Armstrong. I’m doing a reread of her Women of the Otherworld books currently. And I keep an eye out for her new releases. This is one I had my eye on and had preordered. But seeing that audiobook available to request on NetGalley?
Well, I obviously had to request it. And I got it! I was so excited that I could start this book straight away. It took me no time at all to get through, and I can’t recommend it more.

These are specific forms of magic, thought to go back to groups of mystical people from the Ancient Greeks etc. Kennedy Bennett is a curse weaver with an antique shop.
