A reliably entertaining interstitial in my favourite urban fantasy series. Unlike Peter, I now know what Abigail did that summer (hilariously, it's not dissimilar to what he was doing, only aided by foxes rather than rivers). Abigail has always been one of my favourite supporting characters, and I'm now even more worried about what she'll do with her prodigious talents when she grows up...

shanaqui I really should get back to reading this series... I decided not to keep my copies of the latest books in hardback when I was cleaning out, and now I'm slightly regretting it -- I hadn't been *reading* them for ages, just ignoring them and going “meh“, so I figured I was done, but now my brain's like “...nope, I'm ready to see wtf is going on next“. Arrghhh!

(Though I have much more interest in almost every other character than Peter.)

I really liked this creepy little book! Horrible people doing stupid stuff in a haunted mansion, but with creative storytelling and poetic language. Even for the really gross parts. 😖

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

RaeLovesToRead I want to read this, but I don't like the creepy cover 😅😅 Think I might get it on Kindle. I usually hate any kind of body horror, but as long as there aren't pictures... haha 9h
Suetara I absolutely bought this one for the cover. 😁 9h

I figured the Goonies rock would be the best place to read about these wayward children.
I just realized this is the same author who goes by Mira Grant so I am excited to dig into this!

Tianarose This is a brilliant series! Loved them all (edited) 10h
ChasingOm She also goes by A Deborah Baker, lol. 9h

An epistolary time-traveling spy-vs-spy love story. A fascinating universe and a quick read.

I liked reading this. It's short length made it perfect for an afternoon of reading. Dean Koontz is a good author. I was invested in the story from the start. I like the idea of a person going from town to town and serving justice to evil doers. This is a series I plan to continue.

Gorgeous prose and terrific characterization. Wharton does a good job of making this a nice read with a lot going on under the surface. But it is limited by an only ok plot, and mainly of really wealthy people being really wealthy. The cultural tension is American faux-purity and French sophistication, and maybe the subtle lack of sincere emotion. The tension is not on the wealth itself. Still, I really enjoyed this. #whartonbuddyread

Well, what a story. All about a group of people reenacting life in an Iron Age settlement. Done for academic purposes along with the family of a over bearing bus driver. The tale is so compelling as Silvie guides us on this voyage around her father while dressed in a scratchy tunic.

Sometimes we come together with all of our soulmates and it is magical… here‘s some of the backstory of Ingram York in a little novella. I was introduced to him as Maris‘s brother in Sleeping in Flame. Need to work on my J. Carroll character web!
