“I absolutely loved ONCE UPON A SPINE. It’s definitely one of my favorite reads this year and I can’t wait to devour more books in the series!”
~ Under the Covers

ONCE UPON A SPINE is the eleventh book in the Bibliophile Mystery series by Kate Carlisle and it’s seriously become one of my favorites books from this author. I’ve read a lot of Carlisle’s other books and series but I feel like she has the most fun in this series. Not only is Brooklyn such a unique heroine, but I also feel like she has grown a lot throughout this series as well.

This book marks a lot of new things for Brooklyn. She’s taking that next big step in her relationship with Derek and is meeting his parents. However, at the same time, people are ending up dead all around her. So she’s suddenly got a lot on her plate when bad blood starts to boil between the people around her. I found the mystery of this book to be very engaging in interesting. There is excellent pacing and balance in this book. Carlisle weaves together the mystery and romance well so I think if you’re a big Romance fan like I am, you may enjoy this series.

Another thing that I really loved about this book is the focus on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. As a big Alice in Wonderland fan, I felt like this addition really added something special to this book. I was right there along Brooklyn obsessing about this book. So I felt like I was really able to connect with her character with this installment.

I can absolutely see why this series is so massively popular and well-loved. I absolutely loved ONCE UPON A SPINE. It’s definitely one of my favorite reads this year and I can’t wait to devour more books in the series!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
