  7. Cadaver & Queen also made my list. It's such a great a book - I loved how the author was inspired by Frankenstein.

    Happy readings!;)

  9. Ooh I love the look of The Uninvited- those misty covers always get me!- and I remember seeing A Criminal Magic a couple years ago I think it was. Is that one set during an alkernate kinda Prohibition? Seems like I saw good reviews for that!

    1. Yeah, it's set during an alternate prohibition, but instead of alcohol it's magic. :)

  10. Cadaver and Queen is the only one on your list that has been on my radar. I'm currently on hold for it at my library.

  11. I'm so glad we both featured a Cat Winters book. She deserves a lot more love. Did you hear about her Edgar Allan Poe novel that comes out next year?

  12. Revenge and the Wild is SO pretty--I need to read it. I also really need to read A Criminal Magic--I've had the ARC for YEARS and still haven't gotten around to it! D:
