Book Review: Bonfire by Krysten Ritter

“There are the people of the world who squeeze, and the ones who suffocate.” Book Rating: 4.5/5 Book Review: I had my doubts on this one, I truly did. Krysten Ritter, the beloved Jessica Jones, The B in Apartment 23, writing a novel? Nah, it can’t be that good right? I feel like everyone has…

Book Review: The Dark Lake by Sarah Bailey

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: It’s been quite a while since I have finished a book! Have you ever felt like you are in a “book hangover”? I’ve started about 5 books and just haven’t been enthralled with any of them. I finally sat myself down with my reading pillow and said “I’m finishing this…

Book Review: A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay

Book Rating 3/4 Book Review A Head Full of Ghosts was good, but it wasn’t great. I expected to be terrified, to stay up late at night, have nightmares, you name it. I was reading a horror book for a reason! It’s almost Halloween and I wanted to be scared. This novel was told in 3 different…

Book Review: The Secrets You Keep by Kate White

Book Rating 2/5 Book Review I always feel bad giving bad reviews, but I promise honesty on this blog, so here goes. Well, I couldn’t get into this book. The Secrets You Keep had a good premise, but I simply couldn’t find a single thing to connect with the narrator on. She was completely paranoid.…

Book Review: The Lying Game by Ruth Ware

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: I really wanted to love The Lying Game. I’ve heard a lot of hype around it, and I had built it up to something that it just didn’t quite meet. It was a slow psychological thriller about a group of friends who experienced something horrible when they were young. We…
