Book Review: Trapped (Afraid Series) by Jack Kilborn

Book Review: Trapped (Afraid Series) by Jack Kilborn

Trapped is the second book in author Jack Kilborn’s Afraid series. Though a part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone as it’s a completely different story from Afraid. After reading the first book I waited no time in downloading Trapped. I was so excited that I think I missed a very important key detail – Cannibalism – […]

Book Review: Skewed by Anne McAneny

“Political language . . . is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”—George Orwell I’ve been interested in reading Skewed ever since its release, but like many other novels it got put on the back burner. When I discovered it for free with my Kindle Unlimited subscription, I couldn’t […]

Book Review: The Assassin Game by Kirsty McKay

Book Review: The Assassin Game by Kirsty McKay

I received Kirsty McKay’s The Assassin Game as an ARC from the publisher. Reading the synopsis, I couldn’t help thinking that this sounded like a good story about teen assassins. It’s not. In fact it’s not anything I thought it would be, but I still enjoyed it. Instead of teen assassins, I got teens playing a game […]

Book Review: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Book Review: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

I began reading Blake Crouch’s books with the Wayward Pines trilogy. I loved the fast-paced writing, suspense, and mystery. I then followed it up with Abandon, which I found to be a huge disappointment. Dark Matter, thank god, wasn’t the least bit disappointing. My faith in Crouch’s writing has been renewed, and gave me back my desire to devour all of […]

Book Review: Admiral by Sean Danker

Sean Danker’s Admiral is a tense psychological thriller set in deep space. While the pacing is slow, I was never bored as the pace was reminiscent of Alien. Four people wake up to find they’re alone on a ship in some unknown place, and the crew is dead. The protagonist is labeled to be the Admiral, but it’s […]

Book Review: The Passenger by Lisa Lutz

Lisa Lutz’s The Passenger is a twisty, suspenseful, crime story told from the protagonist’s point of view. Tanya Dubois is running from the police. Accused of murdering her husband, instead of explaining what happened Tanya took off because she’s not what she seems. Tanya has a secret.
