As someone who reads a lot of thrillers, I was pleasantly surprised with Meg Gadriner’s Unsub. Unsub is originally crafted and quite a page-turner. I am excited to see where this series leads.
Thank you again to the author for a free copy of her latest installment in the Stillhouse Lake series. I listened to the audio version and really enjoyed hearing the next chapter in Gwen’s complicated life. If you enjoy an easy, readable suspense series, I highly recommend this series by Rachel Caine.
Thank you again to HarperCollins for the free book. I thoroughly enjoyed The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn. It was full of Hitchcock references and kept me on the edge of my seat. Well-written and creative, I can’t wait to see this adapted into a movie in the future!
Woah! That plot twist there at the end…I did NOT see coming! This is the perfect example of a psychological thriller with an unreliable narrator, if that’s your thing, be sure to pick this up in March 2018!
This dystopian novel was all over the place for me. I had a really hard time following along with all the different characters alongside the violence, drugs, and rape throughout. While certainly thought-provoking, not for the highly sensitive like myself. There is lots to talk about and would make a great book club book.
This was such a fun book. Described as “magical realism,” Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance follows Weylyn Grey from childhood through adulthood, and the odd events that happen along the way. I really enjoyed this one and it started off feeling a little bit like All the Ugly and Wonderful Things. Highly recommend this sweet, heartwarming… Continue reading Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance
While I usually don’t gravitate towards young adult, Refugee by Alan Gratz did NOT disappoint. I honestly wouldn’t really categorize it as a young adult other than it’s readability. This story focuses around three separate refugees. A Jewish boy during the beginning of the Nazi takeover in Germany, a Cuban girl fleeing from Castro’s regime,… Continue reading Refugee by Alan Gratz
This beautiful prequel by Alice Hoffman is the backstory of the Owens family we first came to know and love in the book Practical Magic. I really enjoyed learning more about the aunts and their upbringing. I found the story very sad at parts, but it was a really engaging family history. I would definitely… Continue reading The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman
It’s crazy to think the holidays are right around the corner, but they are! If you are starting to think about what type of unique gift to get your friends and family, I have a great suggestion: a Jord watch! These watches are made out of wood, but have an extremely polished and classy look.… Continue reading Jord Watches!
Torn. I love a good plot twist but I’m sure most people could see it coming, I had an inkling. I also could have done without a lot of the survivalist stuff but overall touching story!
