The Cloisters

Let me preface this by saying I’m not the biggest fan of Gothic reads. Gothic books, tend to lean more heavily on a strong atmospheric vibe and less on the actual plot. As a huge plot based reader, this makes most Gothic reads a miss for me. But a couple blurbs about The Cloisters said…

Malice House

When I read the synopsis of Malice House, I immediately knew it was going to fit right in with spooky season. The mixture of horror and mystery sounded exactly like my cup of tea, so I was stoked to get an ARC. After the death of her father, Malice House has been left to Haven…

The Night Ship

I love Jess Kidd’s writing and absolutely loved Things in Jars which came out back in 2020. Kidd has a way of weaving supernatural stories with lyrical prose and creating something extremely unique and captivating. I was ecstatic to get an ARC of her newest book The Night Ship, but I struggled with this book….

The Other Side of Night

The Other Side of Night is one of my most anticipated Fall 2022 read. It’s best to go into this one with a open mind and without to much context, which always makes for an interesting read. There are a few different ways this story is told. David Asha, a well known author is the…

The Lifestyle

I love a good book that will make me laugh out loud, so I was stoked to get a copy of The Lifestyle after reading that Jasmine Guillory said “This book is fun as hell. Hilarious, addictive, moving, and sexy. I lost track of time reading it, and I couldn’t get enough!” In addition to…

The House Across the Lake

I was iffy on reading this one. When I read Sager’s Final Girls years ago, I adored it. I was obsessed with his book but as the books keep coming out I feel that they are getting more mediocre. Last year I skipped reading Survive the Night because I was over poorly written thrillers with…

The Summer Place

I’m so conflicted on this review. On one hand I think it would be great for zoning out while sitting on the beach. On the other hand I didn’t find it super engaging . When Ruby gets engaged, three generations of family secrets are forced to come to the surface. All of the secrets are…
