Network: NetflixFormat: Single CrimeLength: Limited Series. 4 Episodes.Reenactment: Light I'm not a true crime expert. I'm an average middle-aged white woman with that weird middle-aged-white-woman obsession with true crime shows. It's mostly background sound for me, which feels weird and inappropriate, but it's who I am as a person. I've watched every episode of Forensic … Continue reading True Crime: The Vanishing at Cecil Hotel
Some time ago, a thread popped up in one of my paranormal romance groups about PNR written by men. I was intrigued by this, having never read a romance novel written by a man (at least, that I knew to be a man). I know for a fact that the m/m women write is mostly … Continue reading I read a romance written by a man.
Highlander's Captive Highlander's Hope Highlander's Heart Highlander's Love Highlander's Desire There a certain tropes that I love so much that I actually hate almost every book with that trope because they're not done right.

Ward's Black Dagger … Continue reading Book Recommendation: Shadow Beast Shifters

I want to blame 2020, a.k.a. the Dumpsterfire That Never Ends, but it's me. I have no idea what I did and whether it was special or not. There are some big ones. I made … Continue reading Chloe Alice’s Year In Review: 2020
I just wrote the nastiest review I've ever written in my life. The review is only on Amazon, and that account is not linked to my name. It was a romance book, but not in any of the subgenres I've mentioned in my blog or read often. I will not be marking the book in … Continue reading Proofreading is NOT optional
These Violent Delights I don't usually read book blurbs. If I know and like the author, I read the book. If it's a series, I scan the blurb enough to know which character it's about (sometimes) and read the book. If it's a recommendation, once the right keywords are dropped, I read the book. So … Continue reading Book Recommendation: These Violent Delights
A Shifter for Christmas (Shifter for the Holidays Book 1) HONEYNUGGETS Okay, as per usual, I'm in love with T.S. Joyce's latest release. I promise I'm not T.S. Joyce in disguise. I have my own shifter novels that are definitely not hers. The beautiful thing about reviewing Joyce's books is they're all so original that … Continue reading Book Recommendation: A Shifter For Christmas
Gift of the Beast: Holiday Starrs ALIEN CHRISTMAS ROMANCE I'm going to start with a warning: I gave this book 4 stars on Goodreads. I know for a lot of reviewers, that's a good thing, but I'm not a book reviewer. I only post recommendations, and I only have time in my life to write … Continue reading Book Recommendation: Gift of the Beast
