The Lost and the Found by Cat Clarke

My Thoughts: When you love a particular genre, you tend to read more of it, yes? And the more you read of said genre, the most subtle clues you pick up on, and just see coming. I think many readers can attest to that. So, when you see the outcome of a situation so clearly so early in the book, it can leave you either disappointed, or it won’t bother you […]

A Book to Experience \\ My Review of All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda

My Thoughts: There will come a time when a book completely and utterly blows you away. It takes characters you thought you knew, and morphs them into someone else. It takes plot twists you thought you saw coming, and rocks you to the core. And it has an ending that renders you speechless in its brilliance. All the Missing Girls, is that book for me. Most reading of the genre will swear […]

When a Book Chokes at the End // With Malice by Eileen Cook

My Thoughts: I’ve seen a lot of love around the community for With Malice, which added to my excitement to read it. I’m a mystery girl, so I had high hopes for it as a whole. Sadly, the ending had me throwing ALL THE THINGS. From the first page, I was sucked into the book. Eileen’s writing is engaging, smooth and hooks you from the start. I love how the […]

T’was Brilliant I Say! // Blog Tour: Never Missing, Never Found by Amanda Panitch

My Thoughts: Having not read Amanda’s debut novel, Damage Done – which by the way, I will be remedying soon! I wasn’t sure what to expect. I love YA thrillers, but there’s this lack of oomph that really gets me going lately when it comes to the genre, so needless to say I was nervous. Fear not, my friends! This book was brilliant. No, if’s and’s or buts, just brilliant. The writing […]

Destiny, Love and Conspiracy // Map of Fates by Maggie Hall

My thoughts: Map of Fates was one of my anticipated reads for 2016. I went as far as to pre-order on audio. I waited a few weeks to immerse myself back in this world but finally, I did. I did enjoy it a lot, but I felt a slight disconnect that I didn’t feel in the first book and a few small things bothered me. Let’s break it down. What […]

 A Letter to Joe from You by Caroline Kepnes

Dear Joe, I like you. I hate admitting that out loud – but there’s something about your charismatic voice & determination that draws me in. Horrified as I was, I was seriously obsessed with your story; I just HAD to know more. I had to know what you’d do next… I had to finish. I freaking sympathized with you. On MORE than one occasion! This is scary. See, what really makes […]

Audio Book Review | All the Pretty Faces by Rita Herron

My Thoughts: I love me a good mystery and odd as it sounds, I have a weird obsession with stories with serial killers (anything, really) so I was ALL over this one! I had NO IDEA when requesting this book that it was the second one in a series. It all worked out because the first book was summarized and often referenced, so while I would have liked to read […]
