Thicker Than Water by Brigid Kemmerer – Review

If you enjoy both contemporary and paranormal, this book is for you! I’m not going to spend time recapping the book because I don’t want to say much more than the synopsis says, so I’ll just jump straight into my review. What I enjoyed: The mystery. I […]

Giving Goodreads Recommendations

Giving Goodreads Recommendations

Just the other day, I got a book recommendation via Goodreads from Joycedale, one of my longtime blog readers (she doesn’t have a blog or I’d link you up!). The book looked great, so I immediately added it to my TBR and requested it from the library. (Which reminds me, I have to go pick it up!) It made me realize that the recommendation feature on Goodreads can be such a great tool when it’s used […]
