‘Long Live the Pumpkin Queen’ by Shea Ernshaw – Audiobook Review

Long Live The Pumpkin Queen is a sequel novel to The Nightmare Before Christmas, telling what happens after Jack and Sally are married – and how Sally handles the transition to Queen. This story was cute, but definitely reads more like a children’s book or low middle grade story rather than a YA story – and there’s nothing wrong with that! It is based off of a Disney movie, after all! Just be aware of that going into this.

‘Harley Quinn: Reckoning’ by Rachael Allen – Audiobook Review

I’m always on the lookout for new Harley Quinn books and this young adult novel caught my attention! It’s part of the ‘DC Icons’ series but each book is about a different superhero, so you don’t need to have read any previous books in this ‘series’ to jump right into this one.

Author: Rachael Allen
Series: DC Icons #6
Genres: Fantasy, Superheroes, Contemporary

Goodreads Summary


Review: ‘Truly Devious’

“Look! A riddle! Time for fun! Should we use a rope or gun?”

Are you looking for a murder mystery, YA style, set at a boarding school in the mountains of Vermont set in both present time and throwbacks to an unsolved murder from the 1930’s? Then I have found just the book for you! Truly, Devious.

Top 10 of 2017 ~ Taylor’s Picks

Hey all!

Time for my 2017 in books: I read 54, 726 pages spread across 140 books. I was so strong with my reading during the summer, almost reading a book per day, so that’s why it’s so high! The end of the year got super busy because of graduate school but I still managed to get back in the swing of things to finish off the year.

Without further ado, here are my top 10! It was so hard to choose just 10 books I loved. (Disclaimer: I tried to keep to books that were published in 2017 that I read in 2017 for this! They are also in order of when I read them, not by my favorites.)
