The Maidens by Alex Michaelides

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

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 Sarah J. Maas

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 Märgen

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. Johnson

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 […]

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 Michaelides

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 Larrinaga

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 […]
