The Diary | S. L. Weiss

Mehso-so

The concept of a magical diary that makes what you write in it come true, is intriguing. Taking it to the next level with the diary changing those things to make bad things happen makes for a good fantasy book for young adult readers; however, this book is very simply written and could have been more imaginative in my opinion. There could have been some scarier elements especially when dealing with an evil diary. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Although this book was beautifully written, I just struggled to get into it.  I felt that the pace was very slow, and it didn't hold my interest at times.  I used to love Greek mythology, but maybe my tastes have changed.  The pace does pick up about halfway through, but it still was a slow read for me.

These Witches Don't Burn | Isabel Sterling

⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was a fun read! I wanted to read it because it‘s set in Salem, MA, which is one of my favorite towns. I do think this may have been a little to YA for me personally, but the story was cute though. I listened to it on audible and thought the narrator did a good job.

This was my first book by Katherine Center, and I really enjoyed it. I thought the story was written really well. I liked the characters and the growth they all went through.

Wow!  This was so creepy and well written.  I really enjoyed it.  There were some points I found really scary, but I loved it!  Definitely one of the best thrillers I‘ve read.  I definitely don‘t recommend reading it in bed at night with your windows open, but I definitely recommend reading it!   ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Song of Solomon | Toni Morrison

Years ago, when I read Song of Solomon, I had never read a book like it. It is still one of my all time favorite books. Toni Morrison had such a way with words. #rip

This was my first book of Charles Sheehan-Miles, and it was very good. It‘s definitely got some tough subject matter, but the author did a great job handling it in a tasteful way. I definitely recommend this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Final Girls | Riley Sager

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book was highly recommended, but I just thought it moved too slowly. There was no action in the first two thirds, and then it all came out, but I prefer my books to have action throughout. Maybe that‘s just me?

The Arrangement | Robyn Harding
post image
Pickpick

3.5/5 stars! The Arrangement by Robyn Harding is an interesting concept. I didn‘t know much about the Sugar Baby lifestyle prior to reading this. Overall, I found the story interesting and the author definitely kept me wanting to read more. It was a hard book to put down. I did figure out the big twist, but it didn‘t make me want to stop reading. I think that I would have liked this book better if the characters weren‘t all so unlikable.

allureofbeauty I really want to read this one. 2mo

The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides

This book was well written and fast paced for the most part. As the author was building up to the big twist I started to piece it together, but I didn‘t see it coming until then. I felt there were some parts that were a little drawn out, and I just didn‘t believe there was enough time for the last journal entry (no spoilers!) which is why I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
