The Book That Got Me Out of a Reading Slump

I recently found myself in a terrible reading slump. Nothing I was reading was holding my interest, even though I knew they were books that normally would. Case in point, I abandoned TWO historical mysteries (my usual favorites)  because I just couldn’t get into them. What had become of me??

A Treacherous Curse (Veronica Speedwell #3)

I’m sure I’m starting to sound like a broken record at this point, but I can’t say enough how much I love the Veronica Speedwell series!

Not that that’s always a bad thing – I’m totally guilty of picking my next read entirely based on a pretty cover, and I’ve found some real gems that way!

Dream Casting The Light We Lost

  Sometimes when I’m reading a book, I’ll get all the way through the entire book and realize I never particularly envisioned what the characters looked like as I read. Like I could describe how the characters felt, rather than how they looked. That was not, however, the experience I had while reading Jill Santopolo’s… Continue reading Dream Casting The Light We Lost
