Confessions (2008) by Kanae Minato

My copy was translated by Stephen Snyder My Review: Confessions is a hauntingly gripping story about love, loss, motherly bonds, and the worst of human nature. I appreciate how all of the characters are multidimensional, deep and consistent in their actions. I found it as hard not to understand where they were coming from and,Continue reading “Confessions (2008) by Kanae Minato”

Thirteen Storeys (2020) by Jonathan Sims

My Review: I won’t lie – I thoroughly enjoyed Thirteen Storeys as a whole. I loved each “Stor(e)y” as its own and honestly think this would be a great Shutter or Netflix limited series. There are enough creepy elements in each chapter to hold their own. Each chapter can be considered its own short story;Continue reading “Thirteen Storeys (2020) by Jonathan Sims”

She Said, Three Said (2020) by David B. Lyons

My Review: She Said, Three Said is not a book for everyone. It’s not a spoiler to say that the book heavily revolves around Sexual Assault. We start in the deliberation room when 12 jurors go over the evidence presented at trial to decide whether or not to convict three men of their alleged SAContinue reading “She Said, Three Said (2020) by David B. Lyons”

Reckless Girls (2022) by Rachel Hawkins

I have to say that I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did, I knew I was going to like it, because Hawkin’s debut thriller was a crazy ride I thoroughly enjoyed.

For Your Own Good by Samantha Downing (2021) Review

There’s no excellence without sacrifice Why I picked up the book: Teddy Crutcher is Belmont Academy’s teacher of the year. His wife couldn’t be prouder, or so he says, as no one has seen or heard from her in a while.  Focused and driven to keep the school’s reputation by pushing the students to achieveContinue reading “For Your Own Good by Samantha Downing (2021) Review”
