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 […]

Haunting in Old Tailem by Ja..

Haunting in Old Tailem by Janice Tremayne

When I saw the cover and the fact that this book can actually be read as a standalone novel, I decided to take a chance on it. I am and am not glad I did. Let’s explore why. The Characters I actually enjoyed the characters in this book. Especially Shamy and Digger. They’re technically supporting […]

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 S..

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 […]

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 […]

The Bomb Maker’s Daugh..

The Bomb Maker’s Daughter by Thomas Ryan

I love a good thriller and let me tell you, The Bomb Maker’s Daughter by Thomas Ryan was an excellent one. A pre-teen girl is being sought by men who want to use her for nefarious purposes. A man she doesn’t know becomes dedicated to saving her and her family. Add a possibly budding romance […]

Dark Rhapsody by Helaine Mar..

Dark Rhapsody by Helaine Mario

I wanted to like Dark Rhapsody – and I did… at first. But then, I just lost interest. It wasn’t that it switched between character points of view because that’s normal and I don’t have a problem with it. It also wasn’t that the book was lacking in action, because the book isn’t. It’s got […]

Camino Island by John Grisha..

Camino Island by John Grisham

While I kind of panned the last John Grisham novel I’d read, it was more because while it involved law and lawyers, it wasn’t what I was expecting. This novel was a departure from what I recall John Grisham doing previously, but this novel worked. It really did work. The character development wasn’t completely there, […]

The Rooster Bar by John Gris..

The Rooster Bar by John Grisham

I’ll be honest, I haven’t read a John Grisham novel in years. I was really into his novels when I was in high school, but to be honest, after high school I kind of lost interest. I think the last time I’d read one of his novels was back in the early 2000s when I […]

Anchored by Death by Catheri..

Anchored by Death by Catherine Finger

I really wanted to read this book. I really wanted to like this book. But after getting a third of the way through the book and still finding that it just didn’t capture or keep my interest, I knew. This book was destined for the abandoned books shelf. I don’t know if the problem was […]

The Gilded Cage by Lauren Sm..

The Gilded Cage by Lauren Smith

It took me a bit to get into this one, but once I did, I was hooked. I admit, I have a BDSM fetish when I read–if the fan fiction I tend to read is any indication–so any book that includes that is generally a winner with me. I have to say though, this is […]

City of Blades by Robert Jac..

City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett

City of Blades started out as a book I didn’t think I’d be able to get into. At first it just didn’t seem to be that interesting. I’m glad I stuck it out because if I hadn’t, I’d have missed one of the best books I’ve read in the last year! The second book in […]
