>> CURRENTLY READING <<
I'm not normally much for reading mysteries, but I'm intrigued by forensics and the story sounded interesting so I decided to give this a try. Unfortunately it has since reminded me why I don't like to read mysteries, but now about 40% in I'm invested enough to see it through. I believe I've already called the killer/mystery, although the story is still young so I do have an alternate theory as well. The problem is I've watched so many mysteries in the last two decades that I never know if something is purposefully obvious or I just picked up on it easily because I'm conditioned to notice such things. We'll find out.

The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye (ARC)
4.5 Stars. An amazing alternate historical fantasy with a rich world, solid writing, vivid characters, awesome magic, and an engrossing story. I did have some small issues with the love triangle (or was it a love square?) and omniscient point of view, but overall more 5 than 4 stars by the end, especially after the climatic twists I did not see coming. Wish I had the sequel for immediate consumption! T-T Review to come.
Duels & Deception by Cindy Anstey (ARC)
4 Stars. A lighthearted Austen-esque mystery romance with entertaining characters and an engaging whodunit. Mini Review to come.
