Thank you, Netgalley and Publisher, for this Arc!!!
Kelly Link is now right up there with my favorite authors. This was a masterpiece in storytelling. A retelling of seven grimdark fairytales that kept me completely spellbound.
I love the cats. I love the connection I felt throughout all these stories. I loved the imagery, the dark and beautiful pictures this author painted. I loved everything! I literally have zero complaints. This was brilliant, and I know I’m going to be thinking back on these tales.
Thank you Random House and Netgalley for this read!
I loved this book! Chrissy, Chase, Emma and Kiki are the members of The Ghost Gang! They usually are lurking around haunted locales in Las Vegas. However, Chase has bigger plans for this ghost hunting troop on Halloween; a haunted hotel in LA and his dream of 1 million followers on YouTube coming true after this epic adventure. The Hearst Hotel is very creepy and things really escalate quickly because Chrissy can legitimately see ghosts, has real feelings from the other side and even can pick up on thoughts from the living!
I had so much fun reading this. There was a piece to this puzzle that did seem a bit predictable but it was handled in a way that I didn’t see coming. I loved the murder/mystery along with really creepy descriptions of ghosts and all supernatural. Definitely caused some goosebumps and chills running down my arms at several points.
If this sounds like something you’re interested in then I definitely recommend this. Just a trigger warning for frightening scenes, some blood and gore and unsettling imagery.
Thank you Netgalley and Random House for this incredible arc, the finale to one of my favorite series, As Good As Dead by Holly Jackson.
Wow! Where to begin? This book was serious!! I mean the 2nd book had a serious ending but this just…. it’s EVERYTHING!! Holy cow, ya’ll (yes, I try not to actually use bad language) but yeah… holy freaking cows ya’ll. This is intense!
To start from the start, Pip is really struggling with PTSD symptoms. She is hypervigalante as in a loud noise sounds like gunfire, sweaty palms feeling like her hands covered in blood. All that fun stuff. She is unfortunately still dealing with Max Hastings who is accusing her of libel (definite asshat) (am I allowed to say that?)
All of this is made so much worse when she realizes she is being stalked…. and it’s super creepy, dead pigeons and chalk drawings getting closer to her house. The only person who listens and tries to help is Ravi (I love you RAVI!!!) This stalker is well known in the area but it is believed he was caught and is now and forever in jail. But is he? Pip is on the case of her life! Will she find the .killer before it’s too late?
I definitely recommend this series! And the last book, this finale, is amazing (chef’s kiss 💋).
Ellerie and her family live in a small village called Amity Falls or God’s Grasp. What starts out seeming to be a kind and peaceful place quickly turns into a mysterious scene full of attacks, vandalism and unexplained hatred. But where is this enmity coming from?
There are mysterious beasts with deformities (really creepy) and glowing silver eyes. Also, a strange woman described as beautiful with the same silver eyes but hands that are too long and misshapen. Everything just keeps getting more odd, as if someone or something is changing the town. But is it the towns peoples fault? Or the strangers from the woods?
I definitely recommend this chilling read! Trigger warnings for disturbing imagery related to animals and some people, violence and death.
Shiori is a young princess with six older brothers. Everything seems to be going fine until she stumbles on a dangerous secret that leaves her outcast from the palace and speechless along with her brothers who have been turned into cranes. As she searches for a way to break this spell, she goes through many adventures, some good and some bad. Even without a voice, princess Shiori goes through major character development and learns to use her actions to speak for her. There are lots of twists and turns coupled with fast-paced action that kept me reading nonstop. This is a dreamy fairytale with a sweet romance, a talking paper bird and dragons! What more could a reader want? And can I just say… THIS COVER IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!
First, Big thank you to Netgalley and Random House Publishing for an advanced copy of this Marvelous book, Rabbits by Terry Miles.
This story centers around a thirty-something adult named K. K does stand for an actual name but the reader unfortunately will not learn this bit of information although I have a few guesses. He has serious anxiety causing him to dissociate for periods of time, however, he also has an incredible knack for finding patterns in an amazing way. This idea of not only finding patterns but following them to new “clues” is the basis of the game.
This book is simply fascinating and mind-boggling to say the least. Full of intricate details that will lead the reader into all kinds of different directions. I thoroughly enjoyed this and highly recommend for fans of mind trip style books!
Olivia is in her senior year at Claflin Academy. She may be there on scholarship but she found her way into an elite group of girls called the Ivies. Their mission is to get into certain Ivy league Universities no matter what it takes. However, after one of the girls possibly took the Ivies leader’s, Avery, spot at Harvard things get scary.
This book is a perfect murder/mystery based on drama at a boarding school. I loved everything about this story, particularly how it kept me absolutely thrilled until the very end.
I definitely recommend this for all fans of murder/mystery stories that keep you guessing throughout the whole book!
Andy Weir went above and beyond on this one, and that’s saying a lot. After reading The Martian years ago, Andy Weir became one of my favorite authors. He has a way of writing about difficult concepts and abstract ideas while saying it in a way that makes complete sense. He explains scientific and mathematical concepts while addressing them and using them to push the story onward which is perfect for readers like me that do not easily grasp these kinds of things.
This book, Project Hail Mary, stayed humorous and light-hearted while dealing with complex world issues including moral issues. A man, who has no memory of who he is, wakes up in a strange place. After pulling from information he naturally knows and using the tools provided to him … there is only one explanation: He is in space! But where? And why? And how?
All these questions and more are answered throughout the novel and it’s incredible! I highly recommend this to fans of Andy Weir and fans of Scifi in general!
