Taking a short break…

If you couldn’t tell from my post on Friday, I’ve been feeling a lot a little bit of pressure lately. I have a lot going on in my life, and I have been incredibly stressed out as of late. While I absolutely love blogging, at the moment it is causing more stress than escape, and that is never a good thing when it comes to your hobbies.

I’ve decided to take the week off from posting. As of right now it will just be for this week, but I reserve the right to extend that break if I need to. 😉

Mini Reviews: Stalking Jack the Ripper & Hunting Prince Dracula

In preparation for the third book in this series, Escaping from Houdini (which is being released on September 18th!), I just finished reading both Stalking Jack the Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula! I know I am super late to this party, but I am so glad I finally decided to show up 😉

I am also hoping to have the trilogy read before the Southern Festival of Books because Kerri Maniscalco is going to be there!! Ok, I’m done fangirling now… I figured, since I read them both so close together, that I would do two mini reviews in one post!
