Review: Locke & Key, Vol. 1 by Joe Hill

Review: Locke & Key, Vol. 1 by Joe Hill

LOCKE & KEY is super popular as far as graphic novels go—it’s near the top of every Goodreads best-graphic-novels-in-the-history-of-ever list—so I snagged it despite my usual avoidance of all things horror . . . I really shouldn’t have. Not b/c horror, although it was pretty horrific at times, but b/c it was pure chaos. The […]

Bookfessional: When They Get the Mythology Wrong

Bookfessional: When They Get the Mythology Wrong

Bookfessional: When They Get it Wrong My love of folklore and mythology began almost as soon as I learned to read, and as reading has been my numero uno hobby since around that same time, I’ve had decades to become something of a smarty pants on my favorites. Even if you don’t seek out the […]

Review: Ashes of the Phoenix by Jess Haines (@Mollykatie112)

I am all about reading urban fantasy books, especially new ones by authors that I have enjoyed before. So I was excited to read the latest book by Jess Haines, the author of the H&W Investigations series, otherwise known to me as, The Others. Lyra sells rare books, and that includes the occasional paranormal book. […]

Review: The Dream Keeper’s Daughter by Emily Colin

Review: The Dream Keeper’s Daughter by Emily Colin

The books I have the hardest times reviewing are the MEH books, and THE DREAM KEEPER’S DAUGHTER is one such book.

Review: Fury of a Phoenix by Shannon Mayer

Review: Fury of a Phoenix by Shannon Mayer

Shannon Mayer has a whole new bag of tricks with NIX, her latest Urban Fantasy series! The heroine is a human living in an abnormal world where props talk, and more importantly—her enemies have forgotten that revenge is a dish best served cold. I’m so happy that this author finally branched out from her RYLEE […]
