Book Review: Disturb by J.A. Konrath

The last J.A. Konrath book I read during my reading frenzy during Christmas was Disturb. This is the eighth book in the Konrath/Kilborn Collective, and wasn’t one of my favorite. Not only did I figure out the deal with the killer early on, but the main characters weren’t particularly sympathetic, and the plot began to veer toward […]

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 – […]

When I discovered it for free with my Kindle Unlimited subscription, I couldn’t […]

Audio Review: Room by Emma Donoghue

“Everybody’s damaged by something.” I first saw the film adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s Room when I attended AMC Theaters “Best Picture Showcase.” If you’ve never heard of it, every year the theater has a marathon of all the films nominated for the Academy Award. It’s a really fun event, and this year was my fourth year attending. […]
