Review: Like a Sister by Kellye Garrett

Like a Sister is one of several thriller novels I was able to snag over the last couple of months through BOTM – and I am thrilled (pun intended) about that. I don’t think I would have spotted Like a Sister without BOTM’s help, which is why I love my subscription so much. Continue reading

Review: League of Liars by Astrid Scholte

I have loved Astrid Scholte’s previous works and thus knew that I had to give League of Liars a chance. One thing that did surprise me – I didn’t realize that League of Liars was the start of a new series. I wish I had known that going in. For the record, I consider this a positive, not a negative.

Review: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus

I wish I was in charge of handing out book awards because I would certainly give one to Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus. This novel is delightful and hits so close to home, showcasing a world not that far from our past. Continue reading

Review: Project Namahana by John Teschner

I’ve learned I cannot resist dark and gloomy mystery/thriller covers. Especially if they involve the sea, it’s a weakness, I suppose. Naturally, this means that I snatched up John Teschner’s Project Namahana. Continue reading

Review: Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter

Pieces of Her is one of my latest BOTM choices, mostly because I regretted not grabbing it the previous month! I know this isn’t a new release, but I just had to try it. Before you ask, no, I haven’t seen the adaptation yet. I’m still unsure if I will – I tend to like my thrillers in novel format (maybe because it lets me control the pace a bit more?). Continue reading

Review: Blood Scion by Deborah Falaye

Blood Scion is both a debut novel and the start of a new series. Written by Deborah Falaye, it kicks off a series of the same name, one that is as intimidating and dangerous as it is compelling. Get ready for an emotional roller coaster! Continue reading

Review: Heat Wave by T.J. Klune

Heat Wave is the third and final novel in T.J. Klune’s The Extraordinaries series. If you wandered across this story after finding (and falling in love with) The House in the Cerulean Sea, then you better prepare yourself because this is a totally different beast. T.J. Klune is the master at changing voices. Continue reading
