Blog Tour: HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA by Kerri Maniscalco | Review, Favorite Quotes + Giveaway!

Hi, everyone! Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Hunting Prince Dracula. I am so excited to briefly share my thoughts about the book, as well as share some of my favorite quotes! Stick around til the end of this post for an awesome giveaway of both Stalking Jack the Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula! my thoughts I’ll keep this brief, because I don’t want to give spoilers for either of the books in this series. That being said, I adored this sequel even more than I enjoyed Stalking Jack the Ripper! The Romanian, creepy castle setting was so atmospheric, and I love how it played on some of the tropes often found in Gothic novels written during […]

ARC Review: Everything Must Go by Jenny Fran Davis

ARC Review: Everything Must Go by Jenny Fran Davis

 Thanks so much to St. Martin’s Press for providing me with an e-ARC of this book! Everything Must Go was certainly not the book I expected, from start to finish. However, the book I actually got was a bit of a hidden gem. This book was smart, funny, and feminist. It’s definitely one of the more *~intelligent~* YA contemporaries I’ve read recently, but the writing never took itself too seriously or came off as pretentious. This is a story about making mistakes and somehow finding yourself along the way. One thing I adored about Everything Must Go was the format. The story is told through a collection of documents, from letters, to emails, to journal entries, to blog posts. (Side note: […]

Yes, please. It presented lots […]

ARC Review | A Good Idea: Cristina Moracho

ARC Review | A Good Idea: Cristina Moracho

TRIGGER WARNING: DRUG ABUSE/DRUG USE A Good Idea was a decent book. I enjoyed it from beginning to end but it didn’t blow me away. The beginning was, which is odd for me, better than the end. I got into it really quick and wasn’t wanting to put it down, but after I read for a while…I had to stop. It kind of took a weird pace for me and I was just meh about it. I’m not sure if that was actually the books doing or me just being me at this time of my reading slump, but either way, it took a toll on my enjoyment. Now, the pacing was good in the sense of all books ever (if […]

He Will Be My Ruin: K.A. Tucker || My Re-Read Review

He Will Be My Ruin: K.A. Tucker || My Re-Read Review

I don’t re-read often, but when I was asked to review the new paperback I was all for it. Having re-read this book has made me want to start re-reading more. It allows you to catch some things you didn’t necessarily see before and it allows you to feel some things you didn’t feel before. It’s quite awesome. Now, into the actual review of the book. This book, even the second time around, was just as thrilling and mind-blowing as before. Even though I knew what was going to happen I was still captivated from beginning to end. The first time I read this one I was completely wrong with what was going on or who did what. Now, with […]

Blog Tour & GIVEAWAY! || Bad Boy: Elliot Wake

So, I’m kind of a jumbled mess right now. I can’t really gather any complete, cohesive thought. Hell, I can’t do that with a book I just feel meh about. Okay, Erica, get to the point here. Alright, lovely humans, let’s do this. Bad Boy was a fantastic read that left me feeling many emotions. I love when a book allows you to feel every emotion possible and you still end up enjoying it to pieces. The beginning of this book was a little slow and confusing to me, but that is kind of my own fault. I haven’t read Black Iris so I was little confused at some the nods to that book. But, all in all, the whole […]
