I Killed Zoe Spanos

I’m not normally a fan of amnesia/lost memory stories; I find them too convenient or full of cliches. But in I Killed Zoe Spanos, it works. We meet Anna as she is confessing to the murder of Zoe Spanos, detailing the night of New Year’s Eve, the night she saw Zoe die. Then we moveContinue reading “I Killed Zoe Spanos”

Take Me Apart

Classified as a psychological thriller, I think this did not do this book any favors. I kept reading expecting suspense and tension to be built in the mystery, but it wasn’t there. Take Me Apart is about Kate going through the records of a famous artist, Miranda Brand, as she begins to unravel the hiddenContinue reading “Take Me Apart”

The Last Witness

This book was published as Black Cairn Point, but rebranded as The Last Witness in the US. For the cases of goodreads, I would search for it as Black Cairn Point as it is impossible to find otherwise. I’ve mentioned before how I’m slowly getting into the genre of horror, specifically young adult horror, andContinue reading “The Last Witness”

You Are Not Alone

Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen are in a class of authors where I’m instantly interested in whatever new book they’re coming out with. With this book, I was intrigued by the cover and title combination and was interested in where the story was going to go after the synopsis. Unfortunately this time was more missContinue reading “You Are Not Alone”

Burn Our Bodies Down

Well that just thoroughly creeped me out. Rory Power strikes again with a chilling horror novel about familial abuse and the secrets we keep from each other. My favorite thing about this book was that it didn’t keep the action from me. This is more character-driven, yes, but the twists and turns and mysteries areContinue reading “Burn Our Bodies Down”

The Swap

The first Robyn Harding book I read was Her Pretty Face, I read that at the beginning of last year, and I felt that it was so incredible how rich the characters were. Many thrillers that I read have cookie cutter characters that really don’t make an impression or stand out in any way, they’reContinue reading “The Swap”

In the Role of Brie Hutchens…

Brie Hutchens is trying to figure something out, something big, something important. It would be a lot easier if it was like one of her soap operas, something written out for her to say that perfectly describes how she feels (how does she feel? Confused mostly), something that will connect with her mother and helpContinue reading “In the Role of Brie Hutchens…”

Short Stuff

Do you want a short story collection all about queer, young adult couples? Well then have I got good news for you! Short Stuff is a collection of four short queer love stories, two male/male, two female/female. Three of them are contemporary stories (meaning they exist in our current world and operate under our currentContinue reading “Short Stuff”

Out Now

If you want many, many, many short stories about all different types of queer people having adventures, falling in love, dealing with life, then look no further. I read this over a month ago and I still find myself thinking about some of the stories I read. Today, I’m happy to get to share oneContinue reading “Out Now”

Girl Gone Viral

Alisha Rai has done it again. If you missed it, last year Alisha Rai wrote The Right Swipe (review for that here) and it kind of took the romance world by storm. A book full of diverse characters set in the modern dating world, and full of tension and humor? It was everything we neededContinue reading “Girl Gone Viral”
