ARC Review: Burning by Danielle Rollins

When a book’s tagline is “Orange is the New Black with a twist,” one cannot help but be drawn to the book. When the book also has a creepy cover and a REALLY cool premise, one feels the need to get one’s hands on it as soon as possible. One in this case is obviously […]

ARC Review: Hellraisers by Alexander Gordon Smith

Immediate Reaction After Finishing Book Hellraisers drew me in because of its intriguing premise and while I loved the world building I never managed to fall in love with the book. There is definitely potential in the series and by the end of the book, I was hooked, I just wanted more from the book […]

Review: The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes

I love books that are difficult to group into a genre, so it’s little wonder that I enjoyed The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly. In a publishing landscape filled with quirky teens, fantasy world or dystopic wasteland, this book stands apart in its unique setting and dark psychological streak.

The Creeping was a novel I was initially very excited about but when I dove in, I had a hard time really connecting to the characters. I LOVED the creepiness of it, and the dark atmosphere but when it came to the characters, there was only one I liked and he happened to be the […]

Review + Game: Harrison Squared by Darryl Gregory

Harrison Squared genuinely surprised me. It’s not that I expected to not enjoy it, but since I hadn’t read a single review for it or even heard much about it besides what I’d gathered from reading the blurb, I had no idea what to expect when I dived in (if you’ve read the book, that statement would […]

ARC Review: Don’t Stay Up Late by R.L. Stine

This was my first foray into R.L. Stine’s works and unfortunately, it wasn’t a very successful one. I feel like ‘it’s so bad it’s good’ would be applicable here but at the same time, my biggest problem with the book was not the story itself but the writing style.
