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 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 […]

CW: Profanity, death, suicide, violence, religion, religious cult When I read Perfect Prophet last year, I kept hoping there would be a sequel.

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 […]

Verity by Colleen Hoover

Verity by Colleen Hoover

I’m not a big fan of Colleen Hoover. Most of her books are just not my style. I’m not into the contemporary, YA/New Adult romance thing. But this book, self-published because it was such a departure from her normal books, was right up my alley. I’d seen a review on booktube for this book and […]
