Bonfire by Krysten Ritter

Bonfire by Krysten Ritter

Bonfire may be the first book I’ve ever felt would be better as a movie. Abby Williams is a Chicago-based lawyer who returns home to take on the chemical plant that practically funds the whole town. She faces old ghosts that she never managed to […]

Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich

Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich

Future Home of the Living God is a short, dystopian novel about evolution gone haywire. It could have been so good. It SHOULD have been. The synopsis sounds right up my alley but it just fails to deliver. Written in a sort of memoir format, […]

December 2017 Anticipated New Releases

December 2017 Anticipated New Releases

Last month was long and full of writing the words. This month will be just as long but full of reading the words. And celebrating. Plenty of celebrating. Since my TBR list is so long, I’m not adding a lot of books this month – […]

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Caraval is almost everything I’ve heard it would be. Donatella (Tella) and Scarlett need to escape their lives and where better to run than Caraval, a magical five night experience. Part mystery, part adventure, part game, this experience is unlike anything else in their world. […]

November 2017 Anticipated New Releases

November 2017 Anticipated New Releases

I’m not going to lie, November 2017 is NOT going to be a big reading month for me. This is NaNoWriMo and that means write, write, write. Still, I’m not skipping the anticipated new releases for this month because, duh, I still love to read. […]

The Dirty Book Club by Lisi Harrison

The Dirty Book Club by Lisi Harrison

The Dirty Book Club is one of my anticipated new releases. I took it on a flyer because it sounded interesting, different. It surpassed my expectations. M.J. (May-June Stark) moves from New York to California – this works, I promise – where she meets Gloria. […]

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

I cannot say enough good things about The Language of Thorns. I love a good fairytale and these are some of the best retellings I’ve had the pleasure of reading. They are darker and more disturbing which makes them AWESOME. I can’t even pick a […]

The Wolves of London by Mark Morris

The Wolves of London by Mark Morris

The Wolves of London, first in the Obsidian Heart series, is a masterful, mind-bending journey. Laced with horror and mystery elements, Wolves also touches on some steampunk themes. Morris delivers memorable characters, a barrage of vivid battle scenes, and an impossibly creepy underworld. Alex Locke, […]

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King

Sleeping Beauties is large enough to be useful in a zombie apocalypse. At 700 pages, it’s an intricate, character-driven tale that will haunt you for a little while. I’m not going to lie. I started reading this on September 30th but because of its enormity, […]

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Still Alice (the book, not the movie even though the movie is based on the book) is a must read. Fair warning, for adults who have already experienced the loss of a loved one to do Alzheimer’s or a similar disease, it can be extra […]
