[Book Review] The Beast of London by L.D. Goffigan

Book Review for The Beast of London by L.D. Goffigan

I was a little nervous going into this book simply because I have read a ton of really bad books about vampires... However, my hesitation was totally forgotten as I began to read the very first chapter of The Beast of London. This was such a fun and action packed read! It was also beautifully written! If you're looking for a page-turning, dark adventure story, I would highly recommend this!

Full disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my rating in any way.

[Book Review] Melhara by Jocelyn Tollefson

[Book Review] Melhara by Jocelyn Tollefson

Overall, I liked this book, but I do have to say that it really doesn't fall into one of my favorite genres. I also had some pretty big issues with the lack of development in both the story and the characters.

However, if light reads about angels and demons is your jam, I would definitely recommend giving this a read!

And please, don't let my personal feelings in this review affect your decision on whether or not to read this book.
