The Winter People

I’m going to try to switch my review posting date from every other Saturday to every other Sunday. It seems like I have been finishing up books on the weekends, so this gives me an extra day off of work to finish reading and write up a review. It feels weird since I have uploaded…

The Only Good Indians

This was an extremely unique read. I went in knowing that it was written by and about Native American men, specifically Blackfeet, and that there was a killer elk after several of the characters. Honestly, that was more than enough to interest me. I mean, seriously, have you ever heard of something like that before…

Mexican Gothic

Earlier this year I read Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s novel Gods of Jade and Shadow, which I really enjoyed but had a few minor problems with. However, I think Mexican Gothic really shows the writing talent that Moreno-Garcia has, and she seems to be getting a lot of well-deserved hype for her newest novel. Mexican Gothic takes…

The Institute

I have never, ever bought a brand new Stephen King book until now. Why? Well, partially because I got into his work very late, and I’m also very cheap and usually do not buy a book at cover price. Buuuut… I love this cover, and I just really, really wanted to read a brand new…

Fellside

I’m sure most of us here remember or have heard of The Girl With All of the Gifts.

The author’s next novel, Fellside, is more of a mystery/thriller with a touch of fantasy. Fellside…

Heart-Shaped Box

If you’ve been following this blog for a bit, you know that I have become a fan of Joe Hill’s novels. I read and loved NOS4A2, and I read and liked Horns by him. So, I decided to go back to his first novel. Unfortunately, I didn’t love it as much as the previous two…

Unbury Carol

I loved Malerman’s Bird Box, and I was very excited for his new book. However, I just don’t think this was my cup of tea. Carol Evers is beloved and wealthy woman in her small western town, but she has a secret. Sometimes she goes into a death-like coma, but she always wakes up a…

Horns

After reading and loving N0S4A2 by Joe Hill, I had to check out more of his work. Horns, his second novel, is a fun and interesting ride, but it is not quite as polished as N0S4A2. Ignatius Perrish and Merrin Williams were an inseparable high school couple. When their adult lives threatened to distance them,…
