Book Review: Afraid by Jack Kilborn

Book Review: Afraid by Jack Kilborn

“There is no decent place to stand in a massacre. —LEONARD COHEN” I came across Jack Kilborn’s Afraid while browsing through Kindle Unlimited’s mystery section. It was recommended to me because I like Blake Crouch’s work, and the two authors often work together. Yet, I let it linger on my TBR for months. I’m glad I finally […]

Book Review: The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower Series) by Stephen King

“Go then, there are other worlds than these.” As a child my favorite Stephen King novel was The Eyes of the Dragon. It’s not as popular as his other books, but I loved it because it was like a fairy tale.

Book Review: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

I’ve been waiting for Marissa Meyer’s new stand-alone novel, Heartless, ever since news of its release dropped. As a fan of her Lunar Chronicles series, I had really hit hopes for this novel, and I wasn’t disappointed. I received a copy of the book earlier this year when I attended the YallWest Book Convention in Santa Monica, California. It […]
