REVIEW: Invisible

I’m going to start this review with a note: This is a book about terrorism related to Pakistan and Afghanistan but written by a Caucasian person. The main protagonist is a woman who is half white with a Pakistani father she does not know. She’s not raised with that identity and the crux of theContinue reading “REVIEW: Invisible”

REVIEW: The Corpse Flower

What is it about Scandinavian crime noir that just does it for me? Probably the bleakness. The stark reality of evil in the world and that even those out there to fight it are often a little morally grey. The Corpse Flower takes place in one of my favorite cities, Copenhagen and the author did a fabulousContinue reading “REVIEW: The Corpse Flower”

REVIEW: The Collective

This book is one of those cautionary tales of be careful what you wish for – on steroids. They say there is nothing worse than a woman scorned, I would argue that a woman who’s lost a child is infinitely worse after reading this book. Camille’s daughter was raped and killed by a rich youngContinue reading “REVIEW: The Collective”

🎃 October Wrap up ðŸŽƒ

October for me is always all about baseball playoffs, which also means lots of reading time. I more than overcommitted to reviews this month which meant I didn’t get to as much of my spooky season TBR as I wanted. 😫 But I finished 29 and DNF-ed 1 this month and read what will likely beContinue reading “🎃 October Wrap up ðŸŽƒ”

REVIEW: They Stay

“She said that magic is just science that hasn’t been discovered yet.” —————————– They Stay is a spooky mystery with a paranormal element. Shiloh is a high schooler whose little brother goes missing and she feels like she’s the only one who can find him. Her home life is brutal and her fear is thatContinue reading “REVIEW: They Stay”

Pub Day Review: REVIEW: A Spell of Rowans

“My mother, the witch from a fairytale with no happy ending.” ———————————- A Spell of Rowans is more of a murder mystery and family drama than a book about witches and magic. It reminded me in a lot of ways of The Family Plot. The Rowans are an unusual family in a small town andContinue reading “Pub Day Review: REVIEW: A Spell of Rowans”

REVIEW: All These Bodies

“The kind that knew even back then that the dark was a whole other world. That it soaked up the daylight one like a biscuit dipped in coffee.” —————————— 15 bodies. 15 bloodless bodies. Strewn across four states. Fifteen year old Marie Catherine Hale is taken from the last crime scene covered in blood andContinue reading “REVIEW: All These Bodies”
