Home Before Dark by Riley Sager

Rating: 5 out of 5.

It has been a while since I posted on my actual website but this book needed more than just a tiny blurb in Instagram. It is officially spooky season, so of course I have no choice but to read as many books as possible that will get me in the spooky mood! This book checked off all the boxes for me! A mysterious past, a haunted house, a murder, and a woman trying to figure out the truth about her past. Was the book her father wrote about their house fact or fiction? Was there something more sinister at hand? There were so many questions I had right from the beginning and Sager answered them all. So, let’s get into this review!

The Séance in Apartment 10 by Ambrose Ibsen

Rating: 3 out of 5.

A young woman get’s a run down apartment while she goes to school. The faucets leak, the lights flicker, but at least Tori had a place to live. Everything was going fine…well as fine as it could go until her and her friends decided to play with a Ouija board. So, you know…things start to get really shady after that, but of course they would.

Cherry Sinister Murder by Nancy Mcgovern

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is one of the books that I read a while ago and thought it would be a fun one to share! This was one of the first books that I read from the cozy mystery genre before I knew that was a thing! I remember being so excited to read a murder mystery without having to deal with all of the gory details about the murder! Little did I know at the time that there was an entire genre of books that would give me that happy balance. So let me tell you a little about one of the first cozies that I have read!

The Devil’s Only Friend by Dan Wells

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I will admit that sometimes I just pick a book without paying attention if it is part of a series or not. This was one of those times, but thankfully I didn’t need to have read the other books for this one to make sense. What can I say? How could I not read a book whose synopsis says: “John Wayne Cleaver hunts demons: they’ve killed his neighbors, his family, and the girl he loves, but in the end he’s always won. Now he works for a secret government kill team, using his gift to hunt and kill as many monsters as he can. . . . . . but the monsters have noticed” . I mean, how could I resist? Seriously?

I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll

5 Hoots

Gripping. Will keep you on the edge of your seat. I refused to put it down.

Wow, just wow. Each chapter of the book is being told by a different person. The witness, the father, the friend, the private investigator, and the watcher. Each add their own perspective to the story and with each chapter you get a little more information about what happened to Anna. The book starts off with the witness on a train and seeing these two girls flirting with two men who recently got out of jail. The witness has this internal struggle about if she should try and find out who their parents are so that she can snitch on them or to just mind her business. She ends up staying quiet only to find out that one of the girls went missing. The book flashes forward to the 1 year anniversary of the abduction, and that is when the story really picks up.
