Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine ~ Fiction Book Review

This book was the change in a tide of what seemed like an insufferably long string of duds. It left me wondering who this author was, and where she’d been all my life. Not that it’s the most spectacular thing … Continue reading

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

Dead Souls by Angela Marsons ~ Fiction Book Review

There’s nothing like a D.I. Kim Stone thriller to get me out of a reading slump! I didn’t like this one quite as much as the others in the series, the author shook the characters up a bit and took … Continue reading

You by Caroline Kepnes ~ Fiction Book Review

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
