I’ve enjoyed Colleen Hoover’s romances, but as many of you know I haven’t been craving the genre lately. I have been devouring thrillers, fantasies, suspense, and murder-mysteries! Such is the life of a fickle reader. However, early reviews dubbed this a mind-fuck and declared, “What the hell did I just read?!?” I decided I would eventually read it.
The Au Pair written by Emma Rous and narrated by Elizabeth Sastre & Nicola Barber offered a suspenseful domestic-noir that held me captive. I first learned about the book at Between my Lines and jumped at the chance to review the audio. Rous takes us to the New England coast in this gothic tale as a distraught young woman searches for clues about her past.
It’s been five-years since the release of Shudder, the second book in the Stitch Trilogy and I was a tad nervous going in. How much would I remember with over 1,000 books read between them? I needn’t have worried, Samantha Durante quickly pulled me back into this nail-biting science fiction dystopian with Struck.
A gritty, gripping, edge of your seat read with an unreliable narrator and unexpected twists, Hunting Annabelle by Wendy Heard is perfect for fans of You by Caroline Kepnes. What happens when a recently released psychiatric prison patient befriends a girl who then ends up missing. Strap in because the ride is twisted.
Each year for the #HoHoHo Readathon I try to read a horror story or thriller as my winter selection. Let Me In was an Audible daily deal. Murder, suspense and paranormal woo-woo await you in this page-turner.
Coffee Pot Reviews are short and sweet reviews I write in the time it takes my coffee pot to brew. With the second season of the TV show Midnight, Texas set to begin, I knew it was time to finish up this trilogy by Charlaine Harris. Grab a peppermint tea and check out my thoughts.
I read Indexing by Seanan McGuire previously and loved the story from the concept to the inspiration behind it. A secret agency that stops the narrative in fairytales. I somehow missed Reflections the second book and quickly scooped it up on Kindle Unlimited. Gads it was great fun to be back stopping villains with this motley crew of ATI agents!
I am continuing my journey with the Dresden Files and recently devoured Summer Knight by Jim Butcher, narrated by James Marsters. Fairies, pizza and the courts of Summer and Winter made for an engaging listen.
