I have been waiting for a sequel to THE MUMMY for what seems like forever. It was originally published in 1989 and I read it around the time of its release. I was so excited to see THE PASSION OF CLEOPATRA up for review. This sequel has been highly anticipated and I am […]
My love affair with THE VAMPIRE LESTAT began when I was 15 years old. I picked up this book, instead of it’s predecessor INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, because I liked the cover better. Even then, I was choosing books based solely on their covers. I went on to read every single book that […]
The cover of this book is incredible. Originally that is what drew to me to want to read this. When I saw it was by Mindy McGinnis I knew I had to have it. Overflowing TBR be damned! A MADNESS SO DISCREET encompasses dark family secrets, an insane asylum, a killer on the […]
After reading MR.MERCEDES I knew I would have to finish this series. Stephen King is one of my favorite authors and his delve into police procedural is pretty fucking fantastic. Bill Hodges is a perfectly flawed hero and I grew to really love him. In FINDER’S KEEPERS we meet a kid named Pete […]
This story was such good fun. NOS4A2 features Victoria MacQueen as the female protagonist/heroine within a vampire-ish nightmare. But it isn’t really about vampire. I know “what!” Read my description….or skip down to watch the author describe NOS4A2. Victoria starts with a unique ability to find lost things. She rides her bike, a […]
MR.MERCEDES is the first Stephen King book I have picked up in a long time. Although Stephen King’s books were really my first taste of reading, I haven’t read anything of his since THE CELL came out in 2006. I am happy to see that Stephen King still has it. MR.MERCEDES is the […]
This was an unexpected read. I loved Nick Cutter’s THE DEEP last year, so I was expecting a lot from LITTLE HEAVEN. Too much maybe? The author has distinct style of writing fucked up characters. You think you know what to expect. The author invites you to judge these characters, then he throws […]

A girl accepts a mysterious invitation to play a deadly game in this suspense-filled thriller from the author of HEXED--perfect for fans of NERVE by Jeanne Ryan and Lauren Oliver's PANIC.
You are cordially invited to participate in a game of thrills and dares. Tell no one, and come alone. If you dare.
Hope is sick of everyone treating her like she’s breakable. Sure, she has cystic fibrosis (basically really bad lungs), but she’s tired of being babied by her mom and her overprotective best friend, Ethan, not to mention worrying about paying for her expensive medication and how she’s going to afford college.And she’s bored with life in her run-down New Orleans suburb.
When an invitation arrives from a mysterious group that calls itself the Society, Hope jumps at the chance for some excitement. This could be her ticket out. All she has to do is complete a few dares and she just might win some real money.
But the Society isn’t all that it seems . . . and soon Hope finds that playing the game isn’t a choice—it’s a requirement.
“Dark, twisty, and thrilling.” —Danielle Paige, New York Times bestselling author of Dorothy Must Die
“A delicious and fast-paced read! This one kept me up way past my bedtime!” —Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin’
From the Hardcover edition.
This was a fun thriller. I think this story was written at a great pace and had a cool concept. Some of it was really far fetched. I would sum this up as good, not great. First the good: I like Hope as a person. I love the idea of the society with […]

“True Detective” meets H.P. Lovecraft in this chilling novel of murder, mystery, and slow-mounting dread from acclaimed author Mary SanGiovanni . . . It begins with a freak snowstorm in May. Hit hardest is the rural town of Colby, Connecticut. Schools and businesses are closed, powerlines are down, and police detective Jack Glazier has found a body in the snow. It appears to be the victim of a bizarre ritual murder. It won’t be the last. As the snow piles up, so do the sacrifices. Cut off from the rest of the world, Glazier teams up with an occult crime specialist to uncover a secret society hiding in their midst. The gods they worship are unthinkable. The powers they summon are unstoppable. And the things they will do to the good people of Colby are utterly, horribly unspeakable… Praise for the novels of Mary SanGiovanni “A feast of both visceral and existential horror.”—F. Paul Wilson on Thrall “Filled to the brim with mounting terror.”—Gary A. Braunbeck on The Hollower “Nightmarish and vivid.”—FearZone on The Hollower
I was riveted when I started reading this book. Not only were the characters dealing with some terrifying things, but they are in small town Colby, Connecticut. It was not hard for me to imagine a town like Colby in Connecticut. Small towns abound in this state where snow storms are common and […]
