She’s Not Here

Recently I finally took the opportunity to borrow the e-book version of the captivating thriller She’s Not Here by Mandi Lynn. This is the author’s third published novel, but the first I’ve gotten to read of her work. The concept of the story definitely caught my attention from the get go. You have Willow who works at a hospital alongside her doctor husband Randy. Willow’s father battles Alzheimer’s and after watching her father’s struggle it’s fair to say the woman becomes obsessed with finding a cure. Upon discovering that research was being done over the concept of a serum that could potentially in turn cure the progressive disease Willow takes the risky opportunity of secretly kidnapping one of her husband’s patients to use for experiments in her efforts of finding the cure.

PENPAL

Well after reading just one book, I think it’s safe to say I can add another author to my favorites list. His name is Dathan Auerbach and his debut novel Penpal has me pretty sold on his style of writing. He also has me wishing I was a Reddit user, since that is where Penpal originated in the form of a short stories series that intertwined. His stories actually inspired short films and his audience grew well enough that he was able to turn it all into this beautifully disturbing debut. How I even discovered this book was a suggestion made by Amazon. It was actually for the eBook version, but after reading the synopsis I just knew I had to get a physical copy.

Twisted Gift

Welcome to part one (of two) with my involvement in author Jessi Elliott’s blog tour! Today I bring forth a review of Elliott’s latest release, Twisted Gift. This is the sequel to her debut novel Twisted Fate. For the purpose of full disclosure I did receive a free e-ARC (advance readers copy in eBook form) in early August. This was part sealing my fate with being a part of this tour, as well as in exchange for my honest opinion. In no way shape of form does the fact that I’m involved with this tour or received the e-ARC alter my own thoughts in response to the novel I read. The review is 100% my own opinion, just as all my reviews are. With that, I do forewarn that if you haven’t read Twisted Fate yet – you may bump into a spoiler or two.

Sadie

If she dies, she takes the truth with her. – The hook line that seems to be the focal point in advertising the upcoming YA Thriller Sadie by Courtney Summers. I initially discovered this novel through an advertisement that popped up on my Instagram feed inviting people to sign up for a free ARC (advance readers copy). I was intrigued enough from the bit of information on the book through the advertisement that I signed up. Now I’m not sure if everyone who did received a copy, but I was thrilled when a copy showed up at my PO Box just the other day. While this is Summers’ sixth novel, I personally had never heard of her before. After reading – no, correction, devouring this book though, I know I’m going to have to check out more of this Canadian author’s work.
