This book contains bad-boy ghosts, mischievous magic, and a woman who knows what she wants in a Viking hayloft. I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

It just seemed like a weird move and was more annoying than funny or helpful to the plot. I liked the idea of the book and what it was trying to go for. However, in the realm of [...]

Book Description: In the deep heart of the forest, there are places where no light ever shines, where darkness is folded by pale hands and jewel-bright eyes, where the world is ruled by the wicked and kept by the wraiths. This is where the Sprites of the Sihl live.  But Sprites are not born, they are made. On the path to Spritehood, spritelings must first become shades. They do so by binding a shadow: a woodland creature, who guides them through their training. Together, they keep from the light and learn to enchant living things, to bind them, and, eventually, to kill them.  Yet, not all spritelings are born with malice—they must earn it or they are condemned. What happens then to the spriteling who finds a shadow where she shouldn’t? What happens if that particular spriteling wasn’t born with malice at all?  Ahraia was that spriteling. She ran too close to the light and bound herself to a wolf, a more powerful shadow than any that came before it. Now a shade, her shadow marks her for greatness. But a test is coming, and the further they wander out of the [...]

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I thought this sounded like a fun book to read. The cover also really drew me in because I just thought it was interesting. I do think from the description I thought it was for a more adult audience, but it is more for the younger audience. The story was an interesting plot, I liked that it's like a vigilante society that is trying to stop people from hurting society; or in this story more just this town. It was a fun idea. I do think there was more potential with this idea and I just wanted more. [...]

Book Description: Cassandra Bowden is no stranger to hungover mornings. She's a binge drinker, her job with the airline making it easy to find adventure, and the occasional blackouts seem to be inevitable. She lives with them, and the accompanying self-loathing. When she awakes in a Dubai hotel room, she tries to piece the previous night back together, already counting the minutes until she has to catch her crew shuttle to the airport. She quietly slides out of bed, careful not to aggravate her already pounding head, and looks at the man she spent the night with. She sees his dark hair. His utter stillness. And blood, a slick, still wet pool on the crisp white sheets. Afraid to call the police--she's a single woman alone in a hotel room far from home--Cassie begins to lie. She lies as she joins the other flight attendants and pilots in the van. She lies on the way to Paris as she works the first class cabin.
