Good Me, Bad Me | Ali Land

Milly‘s mother is a serial killer. While waiting for the trial to testify against her, Milly lives with a foster family. She adapts to a new high school and a foster sister who is a bully. I wasn‘t too sure where this book was going. While Milly is battling within herself whether she is a good or bad person, I felt like I was on a journey without a destination. As events started to unravel, the story got creepy weird and intense. #MountTBR

I‘m thoroughly enjoying this Nameless series. A woman marries men and then kills them for their money. Yeah, I know, this plot has been written before. But, wait! Nameless and his crew have devised quite the clever plan to hold her accountable for her devious behavior. For the first time though, Nameless‘ plan doesn‘t work exactly as planned…

Look for Me | Lisa Gardner

Pickpick

I haven‘t read many books by Gardner. I can see the benefits of reading this series in order; thankfully it wasn‘t necessary. I liked this suspenseful, mystery well enough. A family is murdered, except for the 11th grade daughter and their 2 blind dogs. A female cop and a trauma survivor work to find the missing girl and who murdered her family. I will likely read more of Gardner‘s work, but I doubt these books will become a priority. #MountTBR

The Colorado Kid | Stephen King

A dead man is found on a beach in Maine by two high school students 25 years ago. The mystery of the Colorado Kid is told by two older men who run the local newspaper to their young apprentice. I was pleasantly surprised to have enjoyed this one. It‘s not just about the story of the Colorado Kid; it‘s about a place in Maine, the relationships between the newspaper people, and the reality of mysteries. #MountTBR

Brynn needs time away for space to grieve and get ready to return to her job as an English professor. She spends the summer in a tourist town on Lake Superior. While staying at a B&B, she meets some wonderful people that she loves like family. This story is about grief, new beginnings, romance, and strong friendships. It was a slow moving story, but it grabbed my heart. The ending stopped me in my tracks (literally) and filled me with empathy.

I‘m loving this series! Dean Koontz has created such a unique character. Nameless has no memory of himself nor does he know his name…and he is trained to kill. In this installment, Nameless tracks down a photographer who takes pictures of hikers and tourists he murdered. Nameless‘ job is to provide a justice that otherwise may never happen.

Rogue Lawyer | John Grisham
post image
Pickpick

Sebastian Rudd is one heck of a rogue lawyer. I like a character who goes against the grain and pushes the limits, especially when dealing with the criminal justice system. While he operates outside of the box, he advocates for people and fights the system when the system is wrong. He is a flawed character and knows his weaknesses. Rudd defends some interesting individuals that often leads him into dangerous situations. #MountTBR

Partners is a short story prequel to Rogue Lawyer. I wasn‘t sure which to read first so I took a chance and read Partners first. It‘s an interesting story of a lawyer defending an innocent man. I hope it helps to have the back story of the relationship between Sebastian Rudd, the Rogue Lawyer, and this particular client. I guess I will find out soon! I‘m moving onto Rogue Lawyer next! #MountTBR

I love Dean Koontz and am intrigued by this character, Nameless. This first story is a great start to this series. Nameless appears in a town out of nowhere and saves the day. He not only protects victims from their perpetrator, he serves a vigilante type of justice. I look forward to reading more; I really want to get to know this character.

This book provides a brief history of Ram Dass‘ experience with psychadelics and his first trip to India where he met his beloved Guru, Maharaj-ji. He graciously shares his wisdom on aging, karma, anger, dying, suffering, and meditation. RD has such an incredible way of talking about these subjects. His stories are often humorous and remind the reader he is human too. And the mirrored cover is incredible! ~Namaste 💜🧘🏻‍♀️🤌#MountTBR

Oak Avenue was a great ending to this series. My favorite plot for a scary story is definitely a haunted house. A couple and their baby daughter move to the husband‘s hometown and purchase an old mansion in desperate need of renovation. The wife struggles to be accepted by the locals while her husband works out of state during the week. Tension builds in their relationship as the house increasingly torments the family. 👻🎃

The Secrets She Keeps | Michael Robotham

This was extremely good! Michael Robotham knows how to write psychological thrillers! Sure there are plenty of unexpected twists and turns, but what makes this one fantastic is the depth of the story. He takes the reader to such unexpected levels. He makes you feel for every character, regardless of their poor decisions. The ending is a bit of a mind bender and allows for a bit of reader interpretation. #MountTBR

The Remedy was just okay for me and it‘s difficult for me to review. I liked it, but I don‘t feel as though I fully understand what happened. A man pays an extreme amount of money for therapy. Maybe it was for therapy…he sees a doctor, but I don‘t even know what happened during his sessions. He leaves feeling great and looks forward to his next appointment. At the end some really mind bending stuff happens. I guess I was just left wanting more.

A couple with a young child, struggling to stay together, takes a vacation to the Poconos. They stay at one of those all-inclusive lodges designed to entertain kids; overstimulating games and indoor water parks. Reginald is an impatient father and cheating husband. His encounters with other guests show the reader his judgmental attitude and one guest in particular teaches him a valuable lesson.

I have definitely been seeing Janet Evanovich‘s books in bookstores, etc. for years and always passed despite hearing good things. I finally figured I‘d give the author a try. Anytime I start a new series, I have to start at the very beginning. I like Stephanie Plum well enough. I‘m not hooked on the series just yet, but I am willing to read the next one to see the potential of this author.

This book was creatively written with two story lines running parallel. Lila is a high powered defense attorney in LA. She‘s a self-centered wife and friend who repeatedly makes decisions that hurt people. In one life, Lila is kidnapped and forced to examine her wrongdoings. In another life, Lila is free and able to examine her life choices motivated by different circumstances. The suspense continued to build. I felt like I was racing to the end!

Unfortunately, I did not like this story at all. A group of kids have a sleepover and soon there is a ginormous spider under the bed. As the short story evolves, more creepy things start happening and the kids plot their escape. There are tons of Harry Potter references that were lost on me. (I‘m probably one of the few people on the planet who has not read Harry Potter.) I didn‘t care for the narrator either.

As much as it pains me to say anything unflattering about a Stephen King novel, I just didn‘t care for this one. I‘m sure it‘s me and not the author. I couldn‘t get into it. So many characters and so much weird, frantic activity. #MountTBR

SqueakyChu It‘s okay not to like everything by Stephen King. He is such a prolific author. I am a big Stephen King fan, but his work I liked the least was “the Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon”. My favorite? Probably Duma Key or Hearts In Atlantis or The Green Mile...or (well, I guess I loved lots of them!) 2mo

Eve, traveling alone, running from someone, stops at a motel to rest for the night. She is the only gust. A single man runs the hotel. Eve hears strange noises at night, indicating there is at least one other guest, but no evidence is found. Something is definitely amiss… I liked the story well enough. The ending was confusing with a rapid switch to Eve at the motel and the event that led Eve to flee. I didn‘t really care for the confusion. 👻

I was super excited to stumble upon this Dark Corners collection of short stories by various authors via my Amazon Prime library. I like that the stories are available individually on both my Kindle and Audible. There are 7 stories in the collection perfect for fans of the horror genre. Since Halloween is my favorite holiday, the first installment by Jennifer McMahon was perfect timing to get me in the spirit of the season.

I am unfamiliar with this author, so I was unprepared for the emphasis on religion. I practice spirituality. I was drawn to this book for the subject of art. The artist, Roman Velasco, reminded me of Bansky in the beginning. Roman started out anonymously painting graffiti and worked to avoid capture by the police. Anyway, this quickly becomes a love story between Roman and his personal assistant and life changing events. #MountTBR

Kinda funny to read this book that was published in 1982 and is set in 2023. I watched the movie ages ago and didn‘t really care for it; therefore, it‘s taken me forever to want to read the book.

That ending though was definitely done in true King fashion; nice and gory. #MountTBR
