Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson ~ Fiction Book Review

This author’s The Kind Worth Killing was fantastic. Like, super awesome, wish I had written it first fantastic, even though it lost the teeniest bit of steam in the end. In this one, the author mastered suspense and atmosphere. If … Continue reading

Truly, Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty ~ Fiction Book Review

Hmmm. My first introduction to Liane Moriarty was the book “Big Little Lies”, which I seem to remember really enjoying. This is the fourth book I’ve read by Moriarty now, and I’ve got to say, I have mixed feelings about … Continue reading

After Anna by Alex Lake ~ Fiction Book Review

This book had such an interesting and fresh idea that I wonder if part of my disappointment with it is that there were endless, ENDLESS!!!!, possibilities, but it seemed to follow what was probably the most predictable route. My wild … Continue reading

The Perfect Girl by Gilly Macmillan ~ Fiction Book Review

I really liked this author’s other book, “What She Knew”. It had a great twist that I never saw coming and impressed me enough that I gave this one a try when I came across it and recognized the author’s … Continue reading

Paper Towns by John Green ~ YA Fiction Book Review

John Green can write. I don’t think anyone disputes that. He creates characters that feel authentic and real, but this book left me severely underwhelmed. I’ve never read another book that won the YA Edgar Award, but I can’t help … Continue reading

Um . . . so that just happened. Interesting. In the beginning, I thought it was addicting, but at times it became a bit much. I needed some space. This one was an interesting journey, definitely fresh, and I’m glad … Continue reading

The Lion, the Lamb, the Hunted by Andrew E. Kaufman ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This book was a surprise. The writing was good, the plot was tense, the pacing quick, and there was plenty of action. I liked it better than I expected. The characters weren’t overly endearing, but they weren’t overly annoying, either. … Continue reading

Evelyn, After by Victoria Helen Stone ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This book had promise. It promised to be psychological suspense. It failed. There was never any mystery, except when the suspense would begin. What it ended up being was a woman’s midlife crisis, journey of self-discovery, and romance. I … Continue reading

Z-Minus by Perrin Briar ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This one was surprisingly fun! It’s not a book I would have normally picked up, but I needed a title that started with Z for my #LitsyAtoZ challenge, and this one was a free Kindle download, so I figured, … Continue reading

Malevolent by Jana DeLeon ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This was a good book. Not excellent, but there was nothing about it that I found lacking. The main character, Shaye Archer, is just damaged enough, and in an interesting enough way, to provide the author with ample room … Continue reading
