Root Brew Float: One Scoop or Two by Sydney Winward is the story of a witch as she faces the dilemma of a lifetime. Josephine Brevil is not your run of the mill witch. She was there when the Salem Witch Trials happened; she survived it all and lived to tell the tale. Regardless to say, she is very careful about her magic and who she shares her powers with. She doesn’t like to share her private information with anyone and she would like to keep it that way. However, when she is tasked to go to Massachusetts to handle a paranormal activity, she wasn’t expecting this place to change her life. She meets the charming and devilishly handsome Clarence and he makes her question everything. She starts falling in love with a human and she cannot afford to do that. Loving a human comes with a choice: love or her magic. Which will she choose?
Oh boy, was this a fun story to read. Quick, incredibly detailed and well-paced, I loved Josephine’s story and her reactions. She is such a fun character; she is fiery and feisty, she isn’t afraid to speak her mind and that is awesome. I loved her responses, her dialogues were incredibly fun, and the way she interacted with Clarence was so smooth. Sydney Winward set the right pace to keep Root Brew Float moving without rushing anything. She gave Josephine and Clarence enough time to experience their feelings, enjoy their relationship and grow as characters that added to the story instead of taking away from it. I really enjoyed this entertaining and fun story and hope there is more because Josephine has the potential to become a great protagonist for supernatural/mystery stories.
Seems like a funny one, but it’s true! Rollerblades are just like a pair of shoes on my feet, familiar and secure. I don’t want to hear “clunk clunk clunk” as someone is rollerblading down the street. Makes me cringe! A good pair of rollerblades is worth the money in my opinion. And wheels. Definitely wheels.
Did I lose a lot of sleep reading this book? I absolutely did! And I don’t regret it for a second. Lord of Druemarwin is full of action, love, and secrets, and I couldn’t help but keep my eyes glued to the book, turning page after page well into the night.
I absolutely loved all the characters, though Toth quickly became my favorite, a hot-headed Tolemak with a good head on his shoulders. One of my favorite scenes of his was when he and Naed got in a fist fight. The whole fight and the interaction afterward had me busting a gut!
Lord of Druemarwin has a stunning, eye-catching cover, with flowing words and incredible details that captivated me from beginning to end. I could highlight the entire book with my favorite parts. This was well-written, with fleshed-out and likeable characters. I didn’t want the story to end.
Hello, Sydney! Thank you for having me as a guest on your blog. So thrilled to be here to talk about my debut novella, Curse of the Blacknoc Witch.
If you haven’t already guessed it from the title, it’s fantasy with a sprinkle of romance and supernatural elements. I’m super excited for the reader to take this journey alongside Layla Marlowe and Samuel Fawcett, who are the two main characters of the story.
Garrett Saunders’ world changed two years ago on a road in Afghanistan. Back home, he feels like a stranger. As he struggles to find his place in the world, he meets a horse destined for the slaughterhouse and a woman bent on rescuing the strays of the world, including him.
Blair Greyson moves to Masonville to look after her ailing grandfather and give her rescue horses a home. Right away she butts heads with a surly former Marine. Despite a rocky start, they come to an agreement: Blair will board Garrett’s rescue horse and he’ll help with repairs around her farm.
Garrett finds purpose working with Blair—and falls in love with her. But she’s hiding a secret. Can she forgive herself and accept Garrett’s love, or will she let guilt and regret continue to rule her life?

Will Alison emerge from Grant’s shadow to protect her family? And can Grant learn that being different can be a strength not a weakness?
Bad children being forced to run from evil creatures every night against their will? Monsters eating children alive and spitting them out into monsters? How dark and gruesome! This book captivated me from beginning to end. The world building in the forest is phenomenal, with small bits of humor thrown in there that made me chuckle. I loved Samuel’s determination to save children from an inescapable doom and Layla’s bravery as she fights off monsters and tries to break the curse.
This book has a dark Grimm’s fairy tales type of feel to it with fun little riddles along the way. Every scene in the forest, my heart was in my throat as I wondered what would happen next. The cover is stunning, the story gripping. This was a wonderful read and I really enjoyed it! I highly recommend.
