Down the TBR Hole #7

Down the TBR Hole #7

The Books This week I started with 159 books (I added a couple from last week). Let’s see how many books I can remove from my shelf this week. I picked this one up in the Apple Books app because it was free. I started it but I wasn’t overly impressed with it and never […]

August 2022 Wrap-Up

August 2022 Wrap-Up

For the month of August 2022, I managed to read 11 books in total, the last one being finished on just after 8PM on August 31. The best part? Not a single book I read this month was on my August TBR post. Go figure. So what did I read this month? There is an […]

Book Review: The Bone Code b..

Book Review: The Bone Code by Kathy Reichs

Trigger Warnings: Murder, Child Murder, Gore, Descriptions of Dead Bodies, Animal Cruelty, Attempted Murder, Mentions of DNA modification and vaccines. In the early 2000s, I fell in love with a TV show called Bones. I would later discover that the TV show was loosely based on the Temperance Brennan series of books by Kathy Reichs. […]

Book Review: The Deep by Nic..

Book Review: The Deep by Nick Cutter

When Brandon did one of his “here are some disturbing/creepy/horror books I read recently” videos and described The Deep, I knew I had to check it out. Before I get into the actual review a couple of trigger warnings that I found – descriptions of gore, childhood trauma, child abuse, animal abuse, animal death, child […]

Book Review: Out of Crisis by Richard Caldwell

I have to admit, I don’t like politics. I find them to be far too divisive and honestly, they get boring after a while. Which is why I have no clue why I enjoy political thrillers as much as I do. For some reason, they are one of my favorite types of book to read. […]

Book Review: The Sacrifice of Lester Yates by Robin Yocum

I know my last couple of reviews have been romance novels, but this time, I’m pulling out a mystery/thriller for you. I’ve been a fan of mysteries and thrillers for years and if you look back at my review history, you’ll see that I’ve reviewed my fair share of them. So today I’m bringing you […]

This book is suspense/crime/horror novel written in the style of a true crime book. But wait – there’s more! Mr. Chizmar not only wrote this book in the style of a […]

Emergency Contact by Mary H...

Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

TW: Abuse, Racism, Mommy Issues, Daddy Issues (I’m sorry it’s been a month since I listened to it, so if there are triggers I missed, I’m sorry.) Emergency Contact is the story of Penny and Sam. Neither of them is a particularly likable character. They are seriously messed up. But if I have to choose […]

The Toll by Neal Shusterman

The Toll by Neal Shusterman

I’m going to admit, I was a bit confused when this book first started. I didn’t realize there was a time gap because I hadn’t read the blurb. I’d figured they’d have immediately started trying to salvage Endura, but clearly not. I’m going to admit this right now, I can’t stand Goddard. He’s egotistical, he’s […]

Thunderhead by Neal Shusterm..

Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman

SPOILER ALERT: There are a couple of spoilers given in this review. I apologize, but I found it very hard to talk about the book without giving anything away. If you’re looking for a second novel in a trilogy or series to frustrate the crap out of you, this one will do nicely. I’m not […]

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

When this was chosen as the book for the Barnes & Noble YA Book Club for December, I was a bit disappointed. Up until December, all of the books had been new releases, so it didn’t make sense to me for them to choose Scythe. Then I figured maybe they’d do all three from December […]

The Wicked Deep by Shea Earn..

The Wicked Deep by Shea Earnshaw

At first I wasn’t going to finish this book. I even turned it in to the library early. I’d gotten to Chapter 5 and it was just dragging along. But something kept nagging at me that I should give it another shot, so I downloaded the Kindle version as a library check out. I’m glad […]

Through the Woods by Emily C..

Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

I heard about Through the Woods on a social network that was touting horror books and I decided to give it a shot. I have to say, I wasn’t disappointed. I didn’t know anything about the book before I started, just that it was called Through the Woods. I was surprised to find it in […]

City of Ashes by Cassandra C..

City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

The sequel to City of Bones, City of Ashes is no less addicting and action packed than it’s predecessor. Just like City of Bones, I didn’t want to put the book down. Lately, that seems like a near impossibility for me. I realized after perusing the library’s website that there are actually six books in […]
