Review: THE CHALK MAN by C.J. Tudor

  I honestly had no idea what this book might contain. I picked THE CHALK MAN solely based on it's cover, as usual. This story was surprising and kinda graphic. It was creepy in all the right ways. In the summer of 1986, 12 year old Eddie, and his four best friends, come [...]

Well, its that time again. Time for me to tell you all about the books lately that didn't make the cut. All of these books got DNF'd because I wasn't enjoying the reading. It's unfortunate, but it does happen. My apologies to the authors and publishers in advance.   DNF at 43% - [...]

Review: ODD CHILD OUT by Gilly Macmillan

I picked up ODD CHILD OUT because I had read the author’s THE PERFECT GIRL and thought I enjoyed it for the most part. Looking over my review just now I see I rated it only 3/5 stars. I am glad I am just now realizing that because I enjoyed this book. ODD CHILD OUT [...]

Review: LIE TO ME by J.T. Ellison

What a trip LIE TO ME was! From the first scene, nae the first character introduction, I was completely hooked on this mystery. LIE TO ME kept me guessing til the very end. This is my first J.T. Ellison book, but it will not be my last. The story starts with this line: "You aren't [...]

Recent Reads -Women on the Edge: ALMOST MISSED YOU and A SIMPLE FAVOR

These two books are both written by debut authors and feature women in trouble. I would classify them both as mystery/thriller. Other than that, they aren't really that similar. I liked one much more than the other. I love the idea of this book. ALMOST MISSED YOU is about second chances and what-ifs [...]

Review: THE PERFECT STRANGER by Megan Miranda

I was totally blown away last year by ALL THE MISSING GIRLS. I knew this book wouldn't be written in the same backwards fashion, but I still expected a lot. I was not disappointed. This author has a talent for writing mystery. The story starts with Leah's fixation on her free spirited roommate Emmy. Emmy [...]

Review: NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

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 Raleigh Tuff [...]
