The Final Girl Support Group

A mystery? Yes, it sort of was, but was it horror? Not really. This book dives into the mind of a Final Girl, literally. But that’s just one opinion.

3⭐

Author: Grady Hendrix 

Genre: Horror, Thriller, Fiction, Mystery

Well, I have my doubts about the horror tag or thriller, it’s more Mystery and Drama than anything else.

Hello, dearies! 📽

This one it’s more like a movie than a book, and you find yourself thinking about all the horror movies you watched in the past, and trying to pair those with the characters in the book rather than paying attention to the storyline.

Daisy Darker

This is the first audiobook I ever listened to, I don’t know if I’ll go back for another. On Daisy Darker? I don’t know if I’ll come back for more books from this author.

Author: Alice Feeney

Genres: Suspense, Drama, Thriller (?)

⭐⭐⭐

I give credit when and where credit is due.

Hello, dearies! 🐚

A new month is here, and only now am I publishing a new one, but the days just blend together lately.

Daisy Darker was my first audiobook, and half of the time I thought, I could be reading this instead of listening and it’ll be faster and perhaps a bit more interesting. But that is not part of the review, just a thought about audiobooks.

The Nothing Man: Review?

“Fiction only really worked if it was built like a lattice through which you were repeatedly offered glimpses of absolute truth.”

Author: Catherine Ryan Howard 

Genre: Thriller, Mystery, Adult, Suspense

Hello, dearies! 📝

Here’s another I wouldn’t have picked up from a shelf on a trip to the bookstore, yet I read it.

The Nothing Man is one of those books that didn’t have my full attention until about sixty per cent of it was already behind me.

I could have left it on the side, I could have stopped reading long before that half mark, but I pushed on, and I am sorry for those who are fans, but it didn’t amount to much at the end.

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder

“The people you love weren’t algebra: to be calculated, subtracted, or held at arm’s length across a decimal point.”

Book: A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder

Version: UK

Author: Holly Jackson

Genre: Mystery, Young Adult, Thriller

Hello, dearies!

Here’s another that I didn’t think I would create or read, but life has its turns and here we are.

I enjoyed Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, even when the YA part got a little exaggerated and I was fighting with the main character out aloud alone in my room.

The Bane Chronicles: Saving Raphael Santiago

‘Word had spread throughout New York that Magnus was the warlock who would get you out of a jam. There was a Sanctuary, too, up in Brooklyn, if you needed to hide, but the witch who ran it didn’t solve your problems. Magnus solved problems. So why not get paid for it?’

Story: Saving Raphael Santiago

Authors: Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan

Book: The Bane Chronicles – Book #6

Genres: Vampires, Fantasy, YA, Short Story

Hello, dearies! 🦇

I’m trying a new thing for Thursdays or Fridays, a sort of Throwback post or Flashback, and I thought this one would be perfect for it as The Bane Chronicles is a throwback indeed or a flashback if you must, at least for me.

As Today is Thursday, this is the first Throwback Thursday book review, thoughts.

Saving Raphael Santiago it’s not all that engraved in my mind, don’t ask me why because I cannot recall, but it was of the stories in The Bane Chronicles, so of course, I had to read it.

Verity

“Most people come to New York to be discovered. The rest of us come here to hide.”

Author: Colleen Hoover

Genres: Thriller, Romance, Mystery, Dark, Adult

Hello, dearies! 📖

First off, let me tell you a bit of what you’ll encounter in this book review for Verity because I feel like some warnings are necessary.

I gave it 4 stars to not give it 3 because that would affect the author, and I’m sure many love this book. And It’s not that I didn’t like it perse, but I didn’t enjoy it fully either. I gave it 4 out of 5 because it was well-written, and I thought, yes, I could read other books by this author.

But this review is honest, as honest it can be without giving away the ending. I’m warning now and will be warning you further ahead that there are spoilers in this review, many if you don’t want to know anything before reading Verity like me. I read it without even looking at the genres of it.

Let’s begin. 📝

4 ⭐

Hello, dearies! 🌌

I finished this one as quickly as I could, not because I wanted to get it over with but because I had Starcaster on my TBR since forever.

It was a great read, and I recommend it. ☄️

Hello, dearies!

It took me some time to write this one, but here I am. As promised.

I will give you the randomness of my thoughts as they came when I was reading Finale, so bear with me for a bit. You might enjoy the quotes and snippets from the book.

Fair warning, this post is full of spoilers if you haven’t read any of the books in the Hush Hush Saga, including this one, book 4, Finale.

For more insight, you might want to first read my revamped review of Books 1 – 3.
