Book Review: You’ll Never Know, Dear by Hallie Ephron

Book Rating 3.5/5 Book Review The cover of this book and description led me to believe this would be a really scary, suspenseful read. While that wasn’t entirely the case, I did enjoy this read! I would classify You’ll Never Know, Dear as a mystery, almost a cozy one but not quite. I wouldn’t say…

Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Boxed in, she thinks. Forever. Book Rating 4/5 Book Review I got chills! They’re multiplying. And I’m loooosing control… Ok, I’ll stop, call it a coping mechanism. No, but, seriously.

Book Review: Beartown by Fredrik Backman

Another morning comes. It always does. Time always moves at the same rate, only feelings have different speeds.

It was outstanding; everything about that book…

Book Review: Ghosted by Rosie Walsh

Book Review 4.5/5 Book Rating Ghosted is a modern twist on the psychological twisty thrillers! I absolutely loved this book. At first, I didn’t think it was something that I’d truly enjoy, but once I cracked this book open, I couldn’t stop! I stayed up past 1 AM in order to get further into it,…
