Book Review: If He Wakes by Zoe Lea

Book Rating 3/5 Book Review If He Wakes by Zoe Lea is a good thriller, and a nice, rather quick read. I received a ARC for an honest review. All of these thoughts are my own. And, I would say that this novel is definitely good, but it didn’t blow me away. I stayed interested…

Book Review: The Circle by Dave Eggers

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…
