How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather *review*

I absolutely loved How to Hang a  Witch and all its witchy goodness.  I wish I could reread it again for my first time and fall in love all over again.  A ghost and witch story that is on the same level of scare factor as Hocus Pocus, but just as wickedly fun.  I cannot wait to go out and grab Adriana’s next book and follow Samantha on her next journey.   4.5 out of 5 stars for me on this one!

“Almost everything worth believing in cannot be seen.  Love, for instance.”

Lilac Lane by Sherryl Woods *review and book tour*

Thank you so much TLC Book Tours for having me on this tour and sending me a copy of Lilac Lane in exchange for an honest review!  Finding love after loss and opening up your heart to the new and different isn’t always easy.  But this feel good book has you rooting for love and family from page one, with a nice dash of Irish cooking sprinkled in.  While the plot wasn’t especially original it was an easy story to read in just a few hours.  I rate this cute book 3 out of 5 stars.

The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon *Review*

THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD! I could not put this down and here I was going into it thinking I would like it but it wouldn’t be a favorite as its marketed as a psych thriller.  Nope, it is not a psychological thriller at all and its odd they marked it that way, it’s a ghost story/mystery and it is one of the best books I have read this year.  I cannot wait to go and pick up more of Jennifer’s books. Five out of five stars!

“Madness is always a wonderful excuse, don’t you think? For doing terrible things to other people.”

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie *Review*

Boy was I a fool to wait so long to read my first Christie book!  I know this one is incredibly famous and I believe I even watched the movie as a kid, although I can’t remember for sure, I enjoyed this book and read it all in only a few hours.  All the stars!

“One little Indian boy left all alone; he went and hanged himself and then there none.”

The Disappearance of Adele Bedeau by Graeme Macrae Burnet *Review*

Thank you so much Sky Horse Publishing for sending me a copy of this book!  I wasn’t too sure how I would feel about this book as we all know I don’t love psychological thrillers that much, but as slow paced as it was at times I actually enjoyed this story a good amount and thought it was a decent read.  I rate this 3/5 stars!

One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus *Review*

What happens when you love every single character in a book, but one of them could actually be a murderer? You hold on to the edge of your seat until the end just waiting for the bomb to drop!  Entertaining from page one this book pulls you in with lovable characters and a lingering sense of mystery keeping you guessing who exactly is telling the truth and who is lying.  I rated this fun read 4/5 stars!

Final Girls by Riley Sager *Review*

I received Final Girls as one of my picks for my September Book of the Month club box and was very excited!  This book had been getting rave reviews and I was ready for a fun slasher.  While it ended up being more of a psychological thriller I still rated this book 3.5/5 stars (rounded to 4 on my Goodreads) and enjoyed it a bit more than I thought I would considering I usually dislike psych thrillers.  With twists I didn’t predict and creepy flash backs making me feel like I was in a horror movie, this book was a perfect start to my Fall TBR.

Hannah Who Fell From the Sky by Christopher Meades and Giveaway! *Review*

Thank you so much TLC Book Tours and Park Row Books for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  I rate this novel 4 out of 5 stars.

From page one I was immersed into the lyrical prose of Christopher Meades.  Following the heartbreaking story of Hanna who lives in a religious cult community, this story is all about identity, faith, and most importantly believing in yourself.  Both haunting and beautiful I could not put this book down until I had finished and I have a feeling Hanna will stay with me for long after the final pages.

“All I know is that if you don’t believe in miracles, you’ll never experience one.”
