Book Review: Sadie

Sadie by Courtney Summers is a book that will stick with me for some time. It's a YA thriller/mystery, but it has loads of subjects and triggers that range from YA to adult: drug abuse, murder, sexual abuse, pedophilia, rape, rural issues and poverty, etc. It is not just your run of the mill easy … Continue reading Book Review: Sadie

Book Review: Girls’ Night Out

I immediately wanted to read Girls' Night Out once I saw the cover and then scampered over to Amazon and Goodreads to read the synopsis. A trip to Mexico that ends in a missing person? YES, PLEASE! At first I got a little confused with the narration - it is told in multiple POVs at … Continue reading Book Review: Girls’ Night Out

Book Review: Before I Met Him

Before I Met You is the second book I have read by John Nicholl and it has some crazy, dark scenes.  On the surface, this book is about a young woman who was assaulted when she was just a little girl who grows up and decides to take justice and revenge into her own hands.  … Continue reading Book Review: Before I Met Him

Book Review: Baby Teeth

Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage is one of the most-talked about books out right now!  From marketing campaigns, to seeing ARCs everywhere, to just now being published, and to seeing it discussed all over Instagram and Twitter, I knew I had to get in on this phenomena that was sweeping the book world. On the … Continue reading Book Review: Baby Teeth

Book Review: Portraits of the Dead

Portraits of the Dead by John Nicholl is quite haunting and seriously freaked me out at times. But in the way that a true crime podcast or an episode of Law and Order: SVU would, ya know? The story focuses on a serial killer who has kidnapped a young 19-year-old girl and has her locked … Continue reading Book Review: Portraits of the Dead

A Night Worms Book Review: Halcyon

“They used to burn girls like you at the stake.” Halcyon is the first book I have read by Rio Youers and it definitely did not let me down. I chose to not research this book before going into it because I have just started really enjoying going into books blind! I am sure this … Continue reading A Night Worms Book Review: Halcyon

Glimpse, by Jonathan Mayberry, is a supernatural thriller sober addict who sees things when she puts on glasses borrowed from someone on a commuter train and keeps getting chunks of time taken from her.  It's like she blacking out but she hasn't been using drugs or alcohol.  Weird things start happening to her friends, too.  … Continue reading A Night Worms Book Review: Glimpse

Book Review: Sins of the Father

Sins of the Father is one of those books you find yourself totally immersed in and never has a dull moment. There’s never a good “stopping point” to put your bookmark because it really is that fast-paced. You don’t want to stop turning those pages. I had pretty high expectations going into it based on … Continue reading Book Review: Sins of the Father
