The Deep | Nick Cutter

This book scratched the spot for isolation horror that‘s been itching! The descriptions were rich, but not overwhelming. The characters were deep and Luke was so easy to identify with. It‘s been likened to Event Horizon meets The Abyss and I couldn‘t say it better myself!

I desperately wanted to like this book. I remember the original movie and got excited when this was re-released. The main plot was intriguing, but I couldn‘t get through all the technical submarine stuff.

This one disappointed me. The beginning was slow and soft, but the premise kept me going. The middle picked up to a disappointing ending. Readers never get a chance to know the real personality behind the main character, nor her true background. By having it written in reverse, the introductions to characters and setting were too late, though it did help with the mystery aspect. It revealed one character particularly well, but that was about it.

For a guilty pleasure, it worked alright. There were plenty of sexy moments to counter the structure and development issues. The characters were inconsistent at times and the mystery elements were a bit out of the blue. If all you‘re looking for is a naughty novel, it‘s worth it, but don‘t expect too many deep moments.

My son enjoyed this every evening. Not much was resolved, making way for more in the series, but I‘d continue reading these to him if he likes. There was a quite a bit of telling and inner thoughts from the main character, Jack. He is funny and caring with the right amount of fear for living in a world with monsters and zombies.

My Mother‘s Day guilty pleasure! Watching my boy swim at the creek, sun bathing, and reading a naughty novel 🤭 This has been on my TBR list for over a year! So looking forward to it.

Another pick from Barbara Nickless! Flawless, exciting, and all the threads neatly tied together in meaningful ways. Anyone who is into mystery/thriller or #milfemfic will love this series!

This book was stacked full of facts, but the story was slow. My son enjoyed it, so that‘s what matters.

“When they first arrived, Helga wondered how anything could grow in such a stark, windblown place. But Mother has told her that when a seed settles to earth, if it‘s tough, it can make the rockiest shore into home. Mother promised that Helga, too, could grow where she had landed.”

Such a sweet little gem from #kidlit

I‘m taking the morning to catch up while the boys play video games. Funny how I get to enjoy my reads without interruption while they battle aliens...😅

My son was so excited to start this book! He gets upset with me every night when I close it at the end of the chapter, complaining that I always stop at the good parts. 😅
