A Conspiracy in Belgravia (Lady Sherlock, #2)Kill the Dead (Sandman Slim, #2)The King of Bourbon Street (NOLA Nights, #1)The Chase (Briar U, #1)The Goblin Emperor (The Goblin Emperor, #1)

A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas
I remember enjoying the first book and then stopped, because I forgot to read this one when it came out haha. I do think I’ll want to read this eventually, I just need to want to read mysteries.

Kill the Dead by Richard Kadrey
While I ended up liking the first book, it was a rough ride and I wasn’t too into it, so I don’t think I’ll ever get around to reading this one.

The King of Bourbon Street by Thea De Salle
I’ve heard this one is amazing! It isn’t at the library though 😢, so I’m removing it from my list, but adding it to my Amazon Wishlist.

The Chase by Elle Kennedy
I grabbed this one free from Amazon! I loved The Deal but the end of the series did… well, I wasn’t a fan, so that is one of the reasons I’m hesitating starting the spin-off. But… I do like the hero and I want to read his story….

The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison
I’ve heard this one is great– I think it was even recommended to me– but meh? I continuously forget about it and the synopsis just isn’t grabbing me so… yeah, I’ll be removing it.


♛ The Highs 

Okay, so I skipped last week therefore this week I’ll be giving a top 15 of my highs to make up for it.

  • Five Minutes Longer by Victoria Sue
    We’ve been over this– I can’t help myself when I find supernatural FBI especially when one is human. I’m itching to read this one.
  • Strong Signal by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell
    They are gamers!! There is also diversity and disability rep.
  • Crowned with Guilt by S.K. Rose
    Potentially dark and omg it sounds great.

    This one sounds adorably sweet and seriously, that cover?? Amazing.
  • Zatanna: The Jewel of Gravesend by Alys Arden

Haunted (Harrison Investigation, #1)The Midnight LullabyThe Crawling Darkness (Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper #3)Booked for Murder (Vigilante Magical Librarians, #1)Just Like This (Albin Academy, #2)

  • Haunted by Heather Graham
    Spooky ghost story that just works with what I am feeling right now. I do hope to read this one soon.
  • The Midnight Lullaby by Cheryl Low
    I want to read more spooky stories this October and this novella seems like it might be right up my alley.
  • The Crawling Darkness by J.L. Bryan
    Keeping the ghost story theme on going, this is the third book in the series and I am seriously looking forward to it. It isn’t available through my library, but I am super close to breaking down and buying it since it is only a dollar.
  • Booked for Murder by R.J. Blain
    Ex-bodyguard on the run turned librarian omg yes please.
  • Just Like This by Cole McCade

  • Jay’s Gay Agenda by Jason June
    Honestly one of the cutest books I’ve read about.
  • In the Ravenous Dark by A.M. Strickland
    “A pansexual bloodmage reluctantly teams up with an undead spirit to start a rebellion among the living and the dead, in this dark YA fantasy.” YES!
  • Aiden’s Awakening by C.E. Lashua
    Ghost love interest??? But he is also trying to kill her? Sold!
  • The Bookseller’s Boyfriend by Heidi Cullinan
    I’ve enjoyed the books in this world and I’m a huge fan of fake boyfriend tropes 🙂
