I have to say that this book is one of the few sequels I’ve read this year that was just as good as the first book! The mystery aspect of this book rocked! It made for very fast pacing, keeping you flipping pages as fast as you can to find out what happens next. I do have to say that I found this one a tad predictable (whereas I didn’t figure out the first one!). But that didn’t make the journey […]

When I first heard about this book, I thought it sounded awesome. When it went up on Edelweiss, I downloaded it immediately. It was only after that I realized it was written in second person. My reaction: Uhh, second person, seriously? I don’t even think I want to read it anymore… I was also afraid to read this book due to bad reviews it has (3.57 avg…ouch!), but I ended up being pleasantly surprised. For once I was the black sheep in […]

I thought for sure I was going to enjoy this book. I absolutely LOVED Before I Fall, and while I wasn’t the biggest fan, Delirium was still enjoyable. Sadly, this one did not work for me. The pacing was downright horrendous – I was bored out of my mind for most of the book. There was far too much detail about mundane things, and I think that could have been cut back to keep the pace moving. After pages and pages of detail […]

This book was totally creepy! It grabbed my attention right from the beginning and refused to let go. Suspenseful and chilling, I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, wondering what would happen next. I just want to get something off my mind right now before I go any further: I don’t know what’s up with killing felines in books lately, but it really needs to stop. It doesn’t add anything to the story except outrage (for […]

This was a step outside of my usual circle of genres for me. I like forensic stuff and I’m a huge fan of the show Dexter, but this was the first thriller/murder mystery I’ve ever read (unless you count Deadly Cool, which I don’t). Like a typical crime scene setup, there were some gruesome scenes in this book – so if you’re really squeamish, I probably wouldn’t recommend it. Those scenes didn’t exactly go into depth and detail and they […]

Secrets, lies, and danger, indeed! Slide was a fast-paced thriller with a plot that was crazy and twisted – I flew through this book in a matter of a few short hours because I didn’t want to put it down. The question of ‘Who is the killer?’ kept me thoroughly intrigued. Even though I rarely pick up mysteries, I enjoy reading them and trying to figure out what’s going to happen. Slide was a bit predictable, I’m afraid. I had a feeling of […]
