I mentioned in my review of The Art of Lainey that I was really impressed by  how much Paula’s storytelling had improved since Venom. I was even more impressed with it in this one! The mystery aspect of this book was awesome! I really liked the secrets and lies – I love stories where the bad guy could be anyone, so you start to mistrust every single person in the story. This one was like that! At every turn I was wondering […]

This is one of those books – you know, the ones you really enjoy while you’re reading them…but when you’re done, you forget it almost immediately and it fades away. It wasn’t memorable, and ultimately that’s what lowered my rating. In the beginning, I thought this would be a 4 star book for me, easy. I was super on board with the blossoming romance between Mila and Hunter, despite not being a fan of romance. I actually kind of wanted more of […]

It has been a very, very long time since a book has disappointed me so much. It is with a heavy heart that I write this review. *sighs dramatically* I liked the first book, but didn’t love it. The second book was really good, and I liked it much better. After seeing review after review, RAVING about this book and how incredible it was, and seeing people’s WTF status updates, I expected this book to be mind blowing. Maybe because […]

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 […]

Why oh why did I wait so long to pick this one up?! It’s been sitting on my shelf forever, but it was never really one that I was super interested in. While perusing my shelves for something horror that could also count toward the Rewind Challenge, I discovered this one. I’m SO glad I did! This book was pretty freaking awesome! There wasn’t a dull moment in this entire book. EVER. Seriously, it was non-stop, heart-pounding action! The first […]
