The Cellar by Natasha Preston *review*

I have been on a spooky/creepy read kick this month and I promptly added The Cellar to the list after hearing some good reviews.  The premise is certainly scary, young girls being kidnapped and kept against their will by a psychopath, and while at times the character development seemed to lack a bit, I did enjoy the overall story.  I rated this one 3.5 out of 5 stars.

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.”
