I wouldn’t say I’m a big fan of mysteries, thrillers, or horror novels – I consider myself a scaredy-cat, and I can’t stomach anything terrifying. This year though, I’ve been doing my best to diversify my reading, and when I see my favorite authors like Nalini Singh and Alyssa Cole release acclaimed thrillers… Of course I’ll check them out! Below are ten mysteries/horror/thrillers in my TBR. I haven’t read any of them so no brief descriptions from me, but they’re all pretty hyped books!
Without further ado, here they are…Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Mysteries, Horror, and Thrillers in my TBR”
In my previous Top Ten Tuesday posts, I talked about how I usually have trouble following the prompt, but not today! I soon as I saw this week’s prompt, I immediately knew what I wanted to write. So, without further ado, here are ten of my favorite book quotes. Some are dialogues between characters, while most are simple thoughts that the main characters have, and all of these quotes have stuck with me through the years.Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesdays: My Favorite Book Quotes”
How is everyone doing? I hope you’re all doing okay! I was sick with a throat infection the past week, and I’ve also been extra busy with work, so I haven’t had the chance to blog much. Thankfully, I’m feeling much better in time for my birthday (!!!) tomorrow, and I’m looking forward to just relaxing, reading, and getting back to blogging – I can’t wait to share what I’ve been reading lately!
So, without further delay, here are ten books that are in my TBR this fall! And yes, they’re all Fall 2020 releases!Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Fall TBR”

Calla Fletcher wasn’t even two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at twenty-six, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when Calla learns that Wren’s days may be numbered, she knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born. She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional—dear God—outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this rugged environment, Jonah—the unkempt, obnoxious, and proud Alaskan pilot who helps keep her father’s charter plane company operational—can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild. Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. Soon, she finds herself forming an unexpected bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship—or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried—and failed at—years ago. It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.
