A Night in Halloween House by Elyse Willems | Book Review

I absolutely adore Elyse Willems (she has no idea who I am, so this review isn't biased) and when I discovered that she wrote a children's Halloween book, I had to check it out. I was a scaredy-cat as a kid, so I was hoping that this novel would thrust me into the shoes of… Continue reading A Night in Halloween House by Elyse Willems | Book Review

Home Before Dark by Riley Sager|Book Review

I've adored all three of Riley Sager's previous novels, so my expectations for Home Before Dark were pretty high. It's safe to say they were met and then some. The novel centers on a woman named Maggie, who as a child lived in a historic home called Baneberry Hall. After living there for twenty days, her… Continue reading Home Before Dark by Riley Sager|Book Review

The Stand by Stephen King | Book Review

I was extremely hesitant to start Stephen King's epic novel due to its 1,400+ page count and small font. When COVID-19 hit though, I decided to be masochistic and read it. I'm glad I did, even if it took me two months to finish it. The story sees the U.S. become ravaged by a gruesome… Continue reading The Stand by Stephen King | Book Review

Jade Green by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor | Book Review

The Hulu adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere is coming out soon, and I had heard pretty much universal praise for this novel, so I decided to finally give this a read.

Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson | Book Review

I loved Kevin Wilson's previous novel Perfect Little World, so I was pretty hyped for Nothing to See Here. It's safe to say my expectations were surpassed. The plot follows a young woman named Lillian who is drifting along in life without a purpose. One day, her former best friend Madison calls her with an offer she… Continue reading Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson | Book Review

The Rhythm Section by Mark Burnell | Book Review

I read The Rhythm Section in anticipation of the upcoming film, and I can safely say I'm hyped. I absolutely loved the character of Stephanie Patrick. Is she the most likable protagonist out there? Certainly not, but she's relatable. She struggles, and the viewer goes through her highs and lows with her. Starting off as a… Continue reading The Rhythm Section by Mark Burnell | Book Review

A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay | Book Review

I don't scare easily, but stories about possession petrify me. I'll admit to being TERRIFIED to even pick up this book, let alone reading it without someone else in the house. I was a brave cookie, though, and finished this incredibly twisted novel. The plot centers around the Barrett family as they deal with their… Continue reading A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay | Book Review

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King | Book Review

The Shining is one of my favorite books by Stephen King, but for some reason I held off on reading this for such a long time. Trepidation that this wouldn't live up to the original novel? Whatever it was, I'm glad I finally rectified the situation. Doctor Sleep is an incredible work of fiction, and I… Continue reading Doctor Sleep by Stephen King | Book Review
