Short & Sweet: From the summary, Nomansland appears to be an apocalyptic wonderland featuring a women's only society. Men are the enemy? Young girls not allowed friendships? Rules meant to be followed with no questions asked? To me, that sounds like a rebellion just waiting to happen. And it is what happens… sort of. Nomansland moves along at a snail's pace. Hauge builds and explores the world. Setting up her tale almost like a dystopian fairytale. It is that different. And I really appreicated that. Little to no romance is even meantioned. Every aspect centers around Keller's world and the […]

Without a doubt, this is the best book I've read in a long time. Ruby Red has an air of mystery that settles in throughout the whole book and keeps you thinking about it long after you've finished reading it.

Today, I'm happy to be a part of The House of Dead Maids blog tour. I will review the novel and then you will read a bit about the author's research for the setting of the novel! 🙂 Enjoy!

While Tabby is a great character, seeing a young Heathcliff was in itself quite a treat. The House of Dead Maids is quite a unique novel. Part classic novel continuation and part delicious Gothic novel with the hint of paranormal. The tale is told beautifully. Now, readers, I must forewarn you. This novel is definitely not for the faint of heart. With sweeping moors and things that go bump in […]
