My Review/thoughts:

Imagine living in a world where a sexually transmitted disease is a disease that people actually want, all because it makes those infected beautiful. In The Beauty, this disease is very much real, and it’s become a worldwide epidemic. In America alone, over half of its population is infected. Not only do people have to worry about those who purposely try to catch this disease, they now also have to worry about the negative side effects that’s proving to be far worse than any of them expected. This sexually transmitted disease is very real, and it’s called The Beauty. (more…)

My Review/thoughts:

Eleven years ago, six kindergarteners mysteriously went missing. But now all of them except one are back. The five kids—now all 16 years old— who did find their way back home after all those years…seem to be perfectly fine. And none of them can remember anything that happened to them for the past eleven years. What happened to these children the last decade? Why did only five of them come back? What will happen now to their families that tried so hard to move on from something so tragic? The Leaving is one of those books that you just need to go into blindly. The less about the premise you know, the better reading experience you will have. Trust me. (more…)

My Review/thoughts:

If you grew up with a sibling, no matter how much you bantered with each other or “disliked” each other, I think it would be safe to say you’d know if there was anything “off” about them. This was especially the case with Karl. After Karl’s sister—Stacey—comes home from a blind date, he notices something extremely odd about her. Stacey seems cold, distant, and suspiciously nasty. When Karl sees Stacey again after a few months apart, it seems as though everything about Stacey has returned back to normal. But Karl could not have been more wrong. Stacey has turned violent and her mental state has become more concerning. Not being able to take any more of it, Karl seeks out the man Stacey went on a blind date with, believing he has something to do with his sister’s mental state. Karl, however, was none the wiser that he might have just walked right into a trap.  (more…)

My Review/thoughts:

How do you begin to trust again when the one man you have come to know as your father figure turns out to be far from who you thought he was? Much of what Elka knows about the wonders and ways of the wilderness comes from the man who she calls Trapper. The same man who took her in when she was merely just a babe, barely eight winters old. But all is destroyed when Elka goes into town one day and sees that her Trapper—actually named Kreagar Hallet—is wanted for multiple murders. Now Elka, broken but still determined, must walk a road full of secrets, deception, and questionable friendships. (more…)

My Review/thoughts:

*Warning: review will contain explicit and sexual matters that may be NSFW*

The Girl in 6E is a hot and steamy thriller. Deanna hasn’t left her apartment or had had any physical interaction with another human being in three years. This being because she’s afraid that once she’s allowed access to the world outside of her apartment door, she’d act on her strong lust for blood and love of death. Living a recluse life made internet her very best friend. It is where she gets all of her shopping done (from food to toiletries), and where she works 18 hours a day. Deanna works as a cam girl—which has earned her more than 6 figures in her bank account, placing her in the top 3 popular cam girls in the cam site she works for—and through this has met different varieties of both men and women. As a cam girl, she keeps her clients’ secrets confidential. As a human being, one is about to escape. “What if you hid yourself away because all you could think of was killing? And what if one girl’s life depended on you venturing into society?” (more…)

My Review/thoughts:

Imagine waking up one day in a hospital without any recollection of how you got there, and no sooner finding out that you are missing six weeks worth of your memory including the four weeks you had spent on a trip abroad to Italy with your best friend. All because of a car accident you were involved in. Now imagine all of this, and imagine wanting nothing more than to just have your best friend by your side to comfort you, to make you feel better and normal again…but then imagine, after all the trauma you had supposedly already been through, hearing the news that your best friend was in that car accident with you and you were the only one who had made it out alive. Not only is your one and only best friend now gone, you are also faced with the problem that the car accident may not be an accident after all. This was the new complicated reality in the life of Miss Jill Charron, the 18-year-old main character of a very gripping novel, With Malice— undoubtedly inspired by the Amanda Knox trial—by Eileen Cook.

My Review/thoughts:

I don’t think I have read anything quite like this book before. What initially caught my attention about this book was the fact that it is set in Japan and was written by a Japanese author. I am always looking for good books that are set in different countries and culture to expand my reading knowledge. And not to mention, I am a huge fan of the thriller and mystery genre! (more…)
