Break the Silence | D.K. Hood
Pickpick

I couldn't put thus book down.
The team's dynamic, the idyllic setting, and the twists and hints made for a great read. I genuinely wasn't even close to guessing the ending, and D.K. Hood did a wonderful job of teasing enough details and hints and twists to keep you guessing.
I look forward to reading more adventures of Kane, Alton, and their team in the future.

Thank you Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

The Sixth Wicked Child | J. D. Barker
Pickpick

The 4MK trilogy comes to an end in the best possible way. With so many twists and turns your head is spinning and you never know who to believe/trust, this plot could potentially have been confusing or convoluted, but Barker's amazing writing made for a fantastic storyline that grabs hold of you tight and refuses to let go (not that you ever want it to).

**Thank you to netgalley, the author, & publisher for a copy of this book**

Hi Littens! I'm looking for a little advice today. Soon I'll start a new job as the town librarian. Now, it's a really small town (a few hundred people) and the job is part time(15 hours a week). I'm looking for ideas for some simple programs I could have for kids or adults. I take this position seriously and feel a big responsibility to my fellow bookworms and future bookworms, so any ideas/advice would be welcome and very much appreciated.

JanuarieTimewalker13 I just learned my local library has game night once a month...that‘s a nice get together! 2mo
BooksAndYarn @SpaceCowboyBooks we dont get much around here, but I will definitely start keeping an eye out. Thanks 2mo
BooksAndYarn @JanuarieTimewalker13 Thank you, that does sound nice. Maybe even make it book trivia or something once in a while. 2mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Yes!!! Fantastic!! At my library, it‘s not book related, but I would love that. I think they bring their games and whoever wants to play, plays. I have to go one night. 2mo

The Whisper Man | Alex North
Pickpick

It took me getting a little ways into it before it grabbed me,but it did manage to do so.The Whisper Man is well written,has the nice little creepy kid's rhyme to warn of the boogey man, & the added mystery of whether or not there's a real live one in town.It feels like this books needs a prequel to tell the original story,then you could maybe have a better feel for the current one.

Asylum | Jack Adams
Pickpick

The description and cover immediately got my attention and the story itself did not disappoint. Adams lays out the story and scene wonderfully, seamlessly switching from past to present to tell the story of an asylum, a kind soul named Joe, and his two young friends who later set out to find answers for their lost and forgotten old friend.

One by One | D. W. Gillespie
Pickpick

From the creepy atmosphere of the new, big house that no one else wanted to the eerie little occurrences that everyone denies, the shifting moods and temperaments of the family members to the freak snowstorm that has everyone housebound, the author did a very good job of setting the scene and drawing me in.

review

Pickpick

Another great addition to the Kane & Alton series.I sailed through,not wanting to ever stop reading.Black Rock Falls definitely has to be explored further;it seems to attract every sort of undesirable character possible.There is a long list of suspects but I do enjoy characters that you love to hate.Wasn't 100% certain of the killer until the reveal,which is great.

Hunting Evil | Chris Carter

Amazing writing from Chris Carter. Once again I got lost in the twisted, oh so devilishly delightful world of Robert Hunter and I absolutely can't get enough. I whole-heartedly wish that there will be more books in this series.

Vanishing Season | Dot Hutchison
Mehso-so

The story progressed quickly, sometimes feeling a little rushed,but was more about Eddison's history/story.So if that's what you're looking for,you're in luck.If you're looking for another Butterfly Garden,this might not be for you.It was like reading two stories at once instead of them flowing together organically.I didn't want o bail,it just left me wanting a little.

Truth or Die | Katerina Diamond
Pickpick

When I requested this book I didn't know that it was a part of a series.That being said,the writing was very well done and I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything having not read the previous books in the series (added to my tbr now).This was an enjoyable read that got my attention quickly and kept me hooked throughout. It was a good story to get lost in and try to figure out.

I've loved reading these books, they really are addicting and I couldn't wait to get to the next one. But tonight I start the last one (#9) and before even getting to page 1 I know I'll be sad that there isn't another one right there waiting for me. Thankfully #10 comes out next month, but then I'll just be stuck with this feeling all over again

Great start to my morning. This series just gets better and better with each book. I start one as soon as I finish the last because I love them but will be so disappointed there isn't more when I get to the last one

wtimblin I keep hearing about this author but haven't picked up anything yet. Any recommendations to dip my toe into their extensive back catalogue? 7mo
BooksAndYarn @wtimblin My brain was all "read the series in order!" just like every other series I try. Each book in the series so far really is better than the last in my opinion, both in storyline & in the authors writing. I'm all about how he doesn't shy away from grit & gore. An Evil Mind (#6) was my favorite so far, though honestly I'd say grab a good drink, get at it with book 1 & just keep going. 7mo
wtimblin @BooksAndYarn sound advice. Will give it a go, many thanks 7mo
