Book Review: The Perfect Child by Lucinda Berry

Trigger Warnings: Child Abuse, Suspected Child Abuse, Animal Cruelty, Animal Death, Mental Illness, Mental Health Issues, Murder I’ve been working toward Amazon’s Kindle Epic Summer Challenge and one of the achievements was to complete an Amazon Original Story recommended by their editors. I’d heard about The Perfect Child on TikTok, so when I saw it […]

The Maidens by Alex Michaeli..

The Maidens by Alex Michaelides

CW: Animal death, death, blood, religion, drugging, drugs, alcohol, abuse, sexual abuse Alex Michaelides has done it again. He had the best-selling debut in 2019 with The Silent Patient and he’s got another winner with The Maidens.  I love a good mystery/thriller/suspense book. The less predictable the better. Trust me when I say that The […]

The Anti-Relationship Year by Katie Wismer

CW: Pregnancy, Pregnancy Termination, Depression Happy Book Birthday to The Anti-Relationship Year!!! Last year, I read and reviewed The Anti-Virginity Pact (TAVP) and wondered then if we would ever see a book with any of the characters from that book again. Well, this year, Katie Wismer has brought us a sequel – that can be […]

A Court of Silver Flames by ..

A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas

CW: See this book’s trigger warnings on Book Trigger Warnings. All I have to say is WOW. If you’ve read A Court of Thorns and Roses and thought Chapter 55 was steamy… wait until you see pretty much this entire book. For steam/spice, A Court of Silver Flames has nothing on Chapter 55! If you’re […]

The Pvritan by Birgitte Mär..

The Pvritan by Birgitte Märgen

CW: The Pvritan contains violence, gore, murder, language, animal death, abuse, suicide, and religion The Pvritan Plot I thought The Pvritan’s plot was both unique and standard. Standard in the sense that it was a typical murder mystery with police detectives featuring as the main characters. Unique in that it used gruesome imagery for the […]

Prophet Reborn by Diane M. J..

Prophet Reborn by Diane M. Johnson

CW: Profanity, death, suicide, violence, religion, religious cult When I read Perfect Prophet last year, I kept hoping there would be a sequel. The book had left off perfectly for a sequel and while I had a feeling there would be one, I wasn’t positive. I was glad I was right. Prophet Reborn picks up a bit after Perfect […]

Some Laneys Died by Brooke Skipstone

CW: Violence, sexual assault, death, animal death, sexual situations, suicide If there is one thing I love, it’s a good mystery. And let me tell you, Some Laneys Died is a good mystery. But it’s not just a mystery. It’s a mystery with a science fiction1 twist to it. What makes this mystery unique is the addition of […]

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Ninth House was one of my most anticipated releases for October. I like Leigh Bardugo’s writing style. And I admit, I was curious to see if she can actually write adult fiction as well as she writes Young Adult fiction. The answer to that question is, she does. I picked up Ninth House for the […]

The Silent Patient by Alex M..

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Holy Fricking Crap. That’s me putting this nicely. Why did I wait so long to read this book? Why did I not read it back when it first came out? Because seriously, I shouldn’t have. I really shouldn’t have. I’m going to start with a character assessment. Theo Faber: I truly liked him. He’s one […]

Donn’s Hill by Caryn L..

Donn’s Hill by Caryn Larrinaga

Donn’s Hill is a horror/mystery/thriller that involves the paranormal. As such, I knew I had to give it a shot. I wasn’t disappointed. Donn’s Hill is Caryn Larrinaga’s debut novel. As such, it does suffer a bit from “first book syndrome” but in all honesty, it doesn’t really detract from the story. This one needs […]

The Testaments by Margaret A..

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

If you want to see inflammatory reviews, just go look at the reviews for The Testaments on Goodreads. Several people have panned the book majorly, stating that the book wasn’t necessary. I’m here to tell you that while those people might feel The Handmaid’s Tale was fine as it was, it really wasn’t. What those […]

It Won’t Be Christmas ..

It Won’t Be Christmas Without You by Beth Reekles

I admit, I’m not usually one for romance or adult fiction. I’m more of a mystery, thriller, horror, and YA person. But this book seemed like it was going to be too cute to pass up. I was right. Christmas is my second favorite holiday after Halloween. It should be – my birthday is Christmas […]

Halloween Carnival Volume 5 ..

Halloween Carnival Volume 5 by Brian James Freeman

You would think with a high profile author like Peter Straub contributing to this anthology, it would have been better. But nope. We start off with Devil’s Night. It wasn’t the greatest story, but it wasn’t a horrible one either. It was a little bit on the messy side, but hey, it was a short […]
