Until Death Do Us Part – James Fuller

After a short hiatus from reading (and doing anything that didn't involve my job, actually), here I am with a new review. Truth be told, I've added this book to my TBR pile in March, after the author, James Fuller, asked me if I was interested in reading one of his stories. We talked a bit on Twitter, and he suggested this one based on my reading preferences. The blurb intrigued me, so here's my honest review of Until Death Do Us Part.

How Not to Vampire – Rodney V. Smith

As a first-timer on Reedsy, the sensible thing I should have done was spending some time trying to figure out the platform. A book caught my attention instead, and I had to take it. The title promised a lot of irony and fun, and I was sold even before reading the blurb. The book in question is How Not to Vampire, by Rodney V. Smith, an Urban Fantasy that is so much more than your average vampire story! The first thing that comes to mind was that it gives the same vibes of some '90s movies I love, those irreverent and crude dark comedies so iconic that stuck with me till today.

Bottle Demon – Stephen Blackmoore

Urban Fantasy is my favorite genre ever. Seriously, read my bio and you'll find out how much I love its tropes, how curious I am to see mythological creatures interact with the modern world. Cue NetGalley, and me browsing for some new UF to read. When I found Bottle Demon, I wasn't sure reading it was a good idea, mainly because it is the sixth installment of an ongoing series and I was afraid I would not be able to understand what was going on. I asked for an ARC anyway and I am so glad I did it! I'll tell you why in a heartbeat, but let me show you the cover first.

Deadly Vows – Keri Arthur

My latest read has been Deadly Vows, the sixth installment of the Lizzie Grace series. I'm so accustomed to the world built by Keri Arthur that being back to Lizzie and Belle's cafe felt like visiting a couple of old friends. Before telling you about this visit, let me warn you --I should write a disclaimer about this somewhere on this blog-- that all the major spoilers for this book are hidden in white text, but some minor ones might be inferred anyway. Read at your own peril.

Some Girls Bite – Chloe Neill.

When I lived with my parents, our next door neighbor was a middle aged woman with straw-colored hair. She was an avid smoker, so her apartment smelled of whatever food she was cooking along with an omnipresent, everlasting stench of stale cigarette smoke. Even the air on the landing our apartments had in common stank. Her cigarettes of choice were named Merit.
