Book Review : The Serpent and the Wings of Night

I’ve been hearing about The Serpent and the Wings of Night for what feels like ages, so I finally decided to give it a try, as I really needed a pick-me-up/fun read.

Book Review : Mexican Gothic

I snapped up Mexican Gothic for my Kindle during a sale and boy, am I glad I did. Mexican Gothic was the perfect, haunting read for right before Halloween.
