I absolutely adored and devoured Sager's previous novel, Final Girls, so I had admittedly high expectations for The Last Time I Lied. I'm ecstatic to say that this work both met and exceeded those expectations. The plot centers around Emma, a woman who suffered a traumatic experience involving three of her friends going missing at Camp Nightingale… Continue reading The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager | Book Review
I was enthralled by this thriller. Yes, I figured out the mystery relatively quickly during my time with The Widow, but I was still captivated by Barton's fantastic prose. The plot centers on a woman named Jean, whose husband just died in a bizarre accident. The kicker? He had previously been charged with abducting a… Continue reading The Widow by Fiona Barton | Book Review
Our Kind of Cruelty is a fast-paced, creepy read that had me enthralled from the first page.

He fully plans on reuniting with his beautiful girlfriend Verity, but is thrown when… Continue reading Our Kind of Cruelty by Araminta Hall | Book Review
Once I started reading Bird Box, I couldn't put this thrilling novel down. The story revolves around a world where if you look outside, you could go crazy and/or die.

The shelter she finds isn't as safe… Continue reading Bird Box by Josh Malerman | Book Review
Towards Zero isn't as strong as some of Christie's other works, but it's still incredibly intriguing and fast-paced. This novel follows a group of people who gather at Gull's Point, the home of a wealthy older woman named Lady Tressilian. Of course, everyone has their own motivations and problems. There's the successful professional tennis player… Continue reading Towards Zero by Agatha Christie | Book Review
This is genuinely one of the most twisted, unique books I've read. Focusing on a sex game gone horribly wrong, this is the story of Jessie Burlingame's struggle to survive. That's not all that's going on, though. Jessie has voices speaking to her, a stray dog who is desperately hungry, and a possibly malevolent presence… Continue reading Gerald’s Game by Stephen King | Book Review
This book had me hooked from the first page. The story follows Audra Kinney, a woman who has left her abusive husband and is taking her kids to San Diego to start a new life.

Goodnight Mommy is a genuinely unnerving, suspenseful, original horror/thriller that I highly recommend to anyone who is a fan of either genre. The story follows two twin boys Lukas and Elias (Lukas and Elias Schwarz), whose mother (Susanne Wuest) has just returned home from having facial reconstruction surgery. The boys start to wonder if this… Continue reading Goodnight Mommy (2014) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 49
