Book Review: Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia

Synopsis: “No one knows who she really is… Hattie Hoffman has spent her whole life playing many parts: the good student, the good daughter, the good girlfriend. But Hattie wants something more, something bigger, and ultimately something that turns out to be exceedingly dangerous. When she’s found brutally stabbed to …

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: Covenant by Allan Leverone

Earlier today, I finished up Covenant by Allan Leverone. I was disappointed, to say the least. The synopsis of the story is interesting enough: fairly young married couple move to small town and buy a house with a history. That history is dark and twisted, centering upon a previous owner that moonlighted …

Book Review: Little Heaven by Nick Cutter

A while back, while browsing through Litsy, I saw a post regarding a reviewer that had requested Nick Cutter’s Little Heaven from NetGalley. It hadn’t shown up on my radar at that point and I’d ever heard of the author, but a brief glimpse at the story’s synopsis was enough to …

Book Review: Fungoid by William Meikle

Post-apocalyptic stories are, by far, among my favorites to read, perhaps because it’s a hypothetical possibility that could still occur in our future. From zombies to biological warfare, many stories offer a new perspective on the end of the world and William Meikle’s Fungoid is no different. Fungoid takes place in …

Book Review: The Rage of Plum Blossoms by Christine M. Whitehead

Phew, midterms are over and I finally finished the book I started reading two weeks ago. At least, I think it was that long. Now, my time will be divided up between reading and working on my National Novel Writing Month project, H E N S B A N E. If …

Book Review: The Fall of Lisa Bellow by Susan Perabo

Though wonderfully written, The Fall of Lisa Bellow is not what I expected it to be. That isn’t to say that it isn’t a good read, — it most definitely is — but because it was not as I had envisioned it, it took me much longer to get through the book than …

Book Review: Siren of Depravity by Gary Fry

To say that I love all things horror would be an understatement; in fact, I thrive on the very things that many people turn away from with an upturned nose. It’s not uncommon that I’m asked, “How can you read that kind of stuff? Doesn’t it give you nightmares?” Even …

Book Review: Eat the Night by Tim Waggoner

To see is to know. To know is to die. To die is to become nothing, and Nothing is Everything. If you’re looking for a good ol’, classic horror tale in the flavor of Evil Dead or Army of Darkness, Tim Waggoner’s Eat the Night is a must-read. It’s fast paced and filled …

Book Review: All That Remains by Al Barrera

Thirteen years ago, the world ended. It was not by nuclear fallout, and as far as the reader can tell, it may have been extraterrestrial in origin: whatever caused it remains shrouded in mystery, even as this quick, action-packed tale comes to an end. All That Remains by Al Barrera …
