Book Review: The Many by Nathan Field

I’m always down for reading a new psychological thriller, perhaps because more often than not, they remind me just how twisted a person’s mind can be. It’s what took my breath away in Gone Girl, after all. Unfortunately, I was not impressed with Nathan Field’s The Many. While it was short, it …

Book Review: Finders Keepers by Stephen King (Bill Hodges Trilogy, #2)

Set a couple years after Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers brings us back to the motley group of unofficial private investigators that saved the kids at the ‘Round Here concert. Only this time, a teenage boy has stumbled across a treasure that could spell his demise. I can say with certainty …

Book Review: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

I don’t really tend to read a lot of vampire books anymore, especially when they’ve been labeled young adult. Holly Black’s The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is definitely an exception to that habit. I needed a break from flipping pages and wanted to get in a little bit of time gaming. …
