Review: This Might Hurt by Stephanie Wrobel

Can we just take a minute to talk about this cover? This Might Hurt, written by Stephanie Wrobel, has an incredibly evocative cover. You can immediately tell that it’s suspense, quite possibly domestic suspense, before ever laying hands on the book. Continue reading

Review: Girl, Forgotten by Karin Slaughter

Wow! Two BOTM sequels in one month? I’m feeling pretty lucky right now! Girl, Forgotten is the sequel to the smash hit novel (and adaptation), Pieces of Her. Once again, I haven’t seen the adaptation so that I won’t be making any comparisons on that front. Continue reading

Review: The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James

Yes! I fell in love with Simone St. James’ writing two years ago when The Sun Down Motel was released, and I have been counting down the days to a new release ever since (yes, I do plan on going through her backlog at some point). The Book of Cold Cases is every bit the novel I’ve been waiting for, as it blends mystery and fantasy into one delightful mix.

Review: The Christie Affair by Nina de Gramont

The Christie Affair was one of my choices for February’s BOTM. I’ll admit that I took a bit of a risk here since I’m actively trying to read more historical fiction novels these days (BOTM has been making that easier on me). While this novel is based on a real person (Agatha Christie), it is a work of fiction. Meaning that Nina de Gramont does not promise that this novel is true. Continue reading

If you love Mexican Gothic, then you’ll love The Hacienda by Isabel Cañas. At least that’s the marketing that sucked me in – and I am so happy for that fact. This is absolutely a book worth reading. Continue reading

Review: The House Across the Lake by Riley Sagar

I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve found Riley Sagar’s novels very hit or miss lately (no offense meant, naturally). However, I’m always willing to take the risk with his writing because when he gets it right – boy, does he get it right! Enter The House Across the Lake, the latest novel I’m diving into. Continue reading

Review: The Change by Kirsten Miller

If you haven’t read Kirsten Miller’s The Change, you need to change that asap because it is a delight to read. This novel takes the concept of ‘girl power’ and ages it up to something more mature and even more well, powerful! Continue reading
