Marianne's Review: A Line in the Dark is not your typical f/f love story with a happy ending. In fact, itʼs not a love story, and the main character doesnʼt have a romance arc at all. A Line in the Dark is a tale of best friends, and what you find yourself doing for them … Continue reading A Line in the Dark: Blog Tour + Review!
“Every time it feels like itʼll last forever. The sorrow that rakes my skin. The guilt that grips my mind. The cold that pierces my bones and freezes my marrow.

I got to read the new and expanded version of this poetry collection so my opinion may be a bit biased. Even though I'm a huge fan of novels and long series, sometimes you just want to dive into your feelings and read something that won't work up your fictional motors. Poetry is cathartic for … Continue reading The Chaos of Longing by K.Y. Robinson: Raw, Potent and Enlightening.
TSIYS has a great premise, however its execution leaves a lot to be desired. Instead of being a murder/thriller type book, what I found it to be was a contemporary romance novel with a murder thrown in at certain moments. It’s like the book would forget it was supposed to be about a killer being … Continue reading There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins: Promised a Spark but Delivered a Fizzle
This graphic novel was anything BUT what I expected it to be. I expected something lighthearted and full of fluff but it’s definitely no that.
