You will find that in previous reviews I have of Claire Contreras books that I go on and on in the beginning about how great she is, how much I adore her and her writing. Like, she is also super pretty and so talented and kind…. and eventually someone is going to get sick of […]
I spent the last seventeen years in a trailer with my mom as she rolled from one addiction to the next. All I wanted was to survive high school and get out of this place. Finding out I had a long lost twin sister on the other side of the country seemed like something out of a movie.
Too bad I didn’t realize it was a horror movie.
Now I’m Madelaine.
We were only supposed to switch lives for a summer. But then the unthinkable happened and now I have the chance to be my twin for the rest of my life. I get the fancy house, the rich father, and the elite school.
But all of those things come with a price I don’t think I can afford.
Maybe taking over my dead twin sister’s life isn’t as easy as I thought it would be.
Mad World is the first book in a new series by Hannah McBride . It contains dark themes (including bullying, drugs, and mentions of past/implied assault) that may be triggering for some readers.
Gripping mystery against an eerie backdrop. Dark and Shallow LIes took my on quite the ride. Ginny’s vivid description of life in a remote bayou town paints the perfect backing for this twisted tale. Normally I’m not one to read YA mysteries as I don’t find them overly compelling, but this one sucked me right […]
Perfect for fans of Black Mirror! What starts out as your typical “teenage girl moves to a new town outside of the city” quickly morphs into a suspenseful story of social media and the unceasing urge to remain relevant. The Last Beautiful Girl accurately depicts the struggle of competing for popularity and individuality in a […]
The first page, heck the first chapter of this book was super intense. WHAT A HOOK! I was somewhat let down after that first chapter. The Girl in the Headlines had so so so much potential. The blurb sounds like a true crime lover’s dream. But actually it was a true crime lover’s nightmare. There […]
This island alone boasts more ghost stories than all of Louisiana combined.
And I’m one of them.
In the Louisiana swamplands, ghost stories are as much a part of childhood as chasing fireflies and crawfishing. They never much scared me, though, nor the possibility of evil out to do me harm. Until the night I watched shadows come to life and butcher everything I loved.
With a stranger’s help, I managed to escape to an isolated place miles north, and, in time, became my own ghost story. A cautionary tale for the locals.
Nearly a decade passed, before I returned to my birthplace, in hopes of unearthing long-awaited answers. Instead, I found something I wasn’t looking for. Someone. A remedy for my loneliness.
Or so I thought.
Turns out, Thierry Bergeron is no elixir. He’s a deadly poison, cursed by the demons of his past, and feared by those who call him the elusive Rougarou of the bayou. A devious rogue, whose seductive whispers and rough hands haunt my dreams. The big bad wolf that defiles me without apology, or remorse.
I should resist him, but I can’t.
And when the shadows return to stake their claim on me, his darkness is the only safe place to hide.
A Stitch in Time was the perfect blend of romance and mystery–with a side of ghosts and time-travel. It’s as if Kelley Armstrong knew what I needed in my life, and she decided to put it all into one book. If you know me, then you know that ghosts and romance are two of my […]
If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for stories about necromancers and ghosts. I’m not sure why, but I am. As soon as I read the synopsis for this book, I knew I had to read it. Now before you start thinking I’m an easy sell, let me enlighten you. No matter how […]
