Wow, this story was delightfully twisted! I noticed going in that this book had some pretty low ratings on Goodreads, which had me worried. In the beginning I wasn’t sure I even wanted to read it, because it’s pretty freaking weird and confusing and I had no idea what the hell was going on. But, as the story went on, I started to get a feel for the creepy isolated town and what was happening there. And I loved it! This book […]

Rating this book was a huge struggle, because I can’t even pin down exactly how I feel about it. As you can see from my Overall Assessment, my ratings are all over the place, so overall I just feel confused about the impression this book on me. I almost didn’t even rate the ‘feels’ category because I didn’t know whether to give it a high feels rating for pissing me off so much or give it a zero for the same reason. […]

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 totally didn’t realize this going in, but this book is a companion novel to Some Quiet Place, not a sequel. I was disappointed to say the least, and sadly, I feel like maybe that could have affected my overall judgement of this book.  My first issue? I wanted Fear. I loved Fear in the first book. Actually, he was what made that book for me! If you didn’t already know, I gave Some Quiet Place 4.5 heartbeats. While he had a few small […]

Evil flows silently among us like venom. This is a very tough review to write for me, and this book was hard to rate (you can see that my overall assessment ratings are all over the place). First of all, I’ve been wanting to read this for a long time because 1) I love the author. She’s one of the most friendly and sweetest authors I’ve ever had the privilege to talk to; and 2) because all of my Merp […]
