Quick Reviews: Hoofbeats & Heartache // Claw Marks & Card Games // Suspects & Scales // Rocks & Railways

For this batch of quick reviews, I have a bunch of books in Maz Maddox's Stallion Ridge series! It's a series of connected m/m romance stories, so I recommend reading them in order, though each focuses on a different main couple, set in a fantasy Wild West world filled with different paranormal creatures. All these books are quick, sweet reads that have uncomplicated plots and focus mostly on...

Bookish Musings: Supernatural Creatures Ranked by How Much I’d Like to Bone Them

My blog is going in a really weird direction I had not expected when I created it. But this is what I do now! I rank things!

There are about a million different types of supernaturals out there, so...

Book Recs: 5 Merfolk Books to Check Out

It's #Mermay! That time of year when artists start flooding Twitter and other social media with gorgeous drawings of mermaids, mermen, and merpals of all genders and even species.

Unfortunately I haven't read a ton of mer books, despite them being one of my favorite supernatural creatures. I've got a...

In our little pool, and even in my grandparents' hot tub, I'd pretend I was, well, essentially a mermaid veterinarian, helping all the injured sea creatures. I don't really...
