The Wife Upstairs #BookReview

The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins My rating: 3 of 5 stars 3.5 starsNot a whole lot to say about this one. I feel like I was into the story as I was reading it. It was good, but the end was a bit underwhelming and anticlimactic for me. There were pieces of the puzzle […]

The Day I Disappeared

The Day I Disappeared by Brandi Reeds My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was just what I needed to get me out of my reading slump this month. It was involved, it was twisty, it took me the long way around and turned all my assumptions on their heads. Once I started reading it, […]

Dark August

Dark August by Katie Tallo My rating: 4 of 5 stars 3.5 starsI really liked this story. It was very detailed and well thought out and well-executed.
