Book Review: The First Time She Drowned by Kerry Kletter

Book Review: The First Time She Drowned by Kerry Kletter

I really should remember this experience the next time it takes me six months to read a book. I had so much hope for this book ever since I first heard about it. In fact, it was one of my most anticipated reads for 2016. I had talked it up so much last year and I had planned to get to it then as well. As luck would have it, I wasn’t able to pick it up until last spring. […]

Book Review: Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson

Book Review: Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson

By now you all know how much I love my dark contemporaries, but in all honesty, I didn’t expect this one to be as dark as it was. I expected it to be more of a creepy doll story, and it was to some extent, but it was a hell of a lot darker than I expected. I figured out very early on why there were four names in the title. I had my suspicions before I started reading and […]

Now I Rise was absolutely incredible. As far as sequels go, this is one of the best I’ve ever read. The story line delivers in every way I wanted it to, giving us crucial scenes I was just aching for. Of course, I do know a bit of the history surrounding this story so I was prepared for some of the major plot points. That being said, Kiersten White was still able to put me on the edge of my […]

Book Review: The Leaving by Tara Altebrando

Book Review: The Leaving by Tara Altebrando

I was really looking forward to this book last year and I was excited when the publisher sent me a copy of it. It looked like something I was going to be obsessed with. Missing children storylines are my jam. Add that to the fact that 5 out of the 6 children in this story actually return, and that gets me more excited about this book. I couldn’t wait to find out what had happened to these kids and where […]

Book Review: A Good Idea by Cristina Moracho

Book Review: A Good Idea by Cristina Moracho

I gotta be honest with you guys, this book wasn’t even on my radar until Bekka read it and she began telling everyone about it. So when I saw it at Barnes & Noble way back in March, I scooped it up. I wasn’t sure when I’d have time to read it, but I finally read it in one day, last Thursday and holy cow you guys, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this book so much. Before I knew it, […]

Book Review: Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire

Book Review: Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire

Ahhhhh oh my GOD you GUYS. This sequel/companion to Every Heart A Doorway was absolutely amazing, everything I was expecting it to be and more. To say I am blown away by the genius McGuire shows again and again would be an understatement. The understatement of the century. Because once again, a book in the Wayward Children series has absolutely murdered me and I am dead on the floor with a book-shaped hole in my heart. Once again, I am […]

Book Review: Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

Book Review: Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

This was absolutely fantastic. It was a million times better than I ever expected and completely blew me away. I’m not sure why I thought I didn’t want to read it – past Bekka was incredibly stupid. Every Heart a Doorway was beautiful, haunting, lovely and filled me with a yawning, cavernous sense of longing that I’m sure can only be filled if I ever find my own door. What I think I’m most amazed by is the author’s gift […]
