Just Get Home

This book was impactful, visceral, anxiety-inducing. I spent the majority of this book with my heart racing. I read this at a fever pitch, a deep intensity to find out what happened to everyone, what will happen to Dessa and Beegie. I was not prepared for the emotional rollercoaster that this book was going toContinue reading “Just Get Home”

Home Before Dark

Ok. So I’ve been trying to figure out what kind of horror books I like and I think this one has finally sealed the deal. I love paranormal horror/thrillers. I know that feelings on this book are a little split, but I have to say that this one is a good, scary, ghost story. ThisContinue reading “Home Before Dark”

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”

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”

The June Boys

This is my first Court Stevens book and I loved it. It combines a few of my niche interests… some that will be explored more thoroughly in later book reviews (is that sinister? I promise it’s not). But if you haven’t heard about The June Boys, let me break it down for you. It’s 2010,Continue reading “The June Boys”

The Missing Sister

 A thriller taking place in Paris where our heroine, Shayna, doesn’t speak the language and is desperately trying to find her sister who everyone thinks is dead. Elle Marr created a story where you felt time, unease, and paranoia pressing in on you from all sides. Trust No One. That was Angela’s last note toContinue reading “The Missing Sister”
