๐ŸŒŸ Arc Review ๐ŸŒŸ I am Margaret Moore by Hannah Capin!

Thank you Netgalley for this Arc!

Wow! I am speechless. I read this in one sitting simply because the author drew me in so completely with this hypnotic writing that did more than just tell a story. I Am Margaret Moore is full to brimming with emotion and I can see so many people relating to this tale on multiple levels.

Four girls with an incredible friendship developed at a camp over many summers of attendance are always there for each other. Even when it’s difficult, confusing and life-changing. This story speaks on deep friendships and love, heartbreak and betrayal. I was entranced to the last page and I believe this book will always be on my mind.

I highly recommend this read. I feel like I was there. That Margaret Moore’s emotions were mine and this story is now a part of me, too. There are some trigger warnings for death, loss, grief and unsettling scenes.

Look for this on March 15th!

๐ŸŒŸ The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake! (Thoughts and Review) ๐ŸŒŸ

This book was amazing! The choosing of the players in what ultimately amounts to a game of wits between these six magical people who have been offered a chance to become members in a world changing secret society. Things may seem straightforward, however there are so many secrets kept and so many revealed that I know this will make for an excellent reread.

There are some characters I love. Some I thought I loved until I knew better. Some I thought I completely disliked until I learned more. And, of course, some I just do not care for and never will. It’s these little distinctions that make me so crazy about this book. Not only are the initiates trying to figure each other out, figure the game out, but I’m in the exact same position as a reader. Which is something I adore!

I definitely recommend this! Dark Acedemia with a magical twist!

Trigger warnings for manipulation bw characters, some unsettling scenes and violence.

๐ŸŒŸArc Review ๐ŸŒŸ The Paradox Hotel by Rob Hart!

Thank you Netgalley for this Arc!

I have not been so captivated by a story in a while. This is definitely going to stick with me.

January was working as a time cop far in the future when our world discovers the means to time travel. After January gets diagnosed as unstuck (think of it as being slightly unstuck from the straight line moving forward in time. She will sometimes drop into her past or possibly even her future.). This kind of makes January seem untrustworthy and less mentally stable to some. Some question her ability to work as head of security for The Paradox Hotel. But, really, January can stand up for herself and she does… even if she is missing out on the support from her friends and coworkers at The Paradox Hotel.

This story just goes right into an intense vibe. Even the first paragraph lets the reader know they are in for something wild and unexpected. Time begins to stutter. All these trips that the rich take to different eras start having an effect on everything and it’s simply a wild ride from start to finish.

If you love mind trippy books about time travel and alternate planes of time then I think you will enjoy this book. I had such a blast reading it. I went through every single emotion while not being able to put this book down for a second. Definitely recommend!

Look for this on February 22nd!!!

What do you like in horror/thrillers?

I really liked this book but there was one thing that bothered me. And, this is something that would bother me about any horror or thriller book. Mainly it’s predictability. I was able to predict something that would have been more exciting not to know. Especially when the ending revealed all this books secrets.

Now, I’m not saying I predicted everything. There were so many different aspects to this story that when the truth was revealed at the end it left me completely shocked.

I loved the small town centered around this creepy old church and the Secrets that seemed to be kept by everyone. Jack, the mother of daughter Flo (age 15) and Vicar of the church, was a really interesting character to follow through this. Especially with the peeks into her past that didn’t completely make sense until the end. I also loved Flo bc she really reminded me of myself, lol. I loved her attitude.

This is definitely worth a read for fans of horror and thrillers. But, the question remains… What do you need from horror and thrillers? I need them to be unpredictable and I’m wondering if anyone agrees?

Have a great day!! ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

๐ŸŒŸArc Review๐ŸŒŸ These Deadly Games by Diana Urban!!

Thank you Netgalley for this fantastic read!

This is such an intense read.  It had me on the edge of my seat until the last page.  Crys (Crystal) is a gamer and livestreams with friends while they play MortalDusk.  It’s a day before the MortalDusk competition and Crys and her friends,  her team, are preparing and hoping to win! However, Crys receives a strange message from an app she doesn’t remember downloading and this is when the real game begins.

Secrets are revealed slowly through this book and friendships are destroyed.  What I thought I knew, and what my main hypotheses about who this anonymous messenger was, were completely off base.  Get ready for a violent turn of events, an anonymous messenger wreaking havoc by forcing Crys to play a game that effects the real world and a shocking ending!

I loved this book! It was so torturous at times reading about what Crys was going through but the story pulled me along and I couldn’t put it down for a second.

Trigger warnings for violence, death, unsettling events, also mentions mental health like ptsd and paranoia. (It’s a mind trip for sure!)

Pub. Day is the 1st of February!
