Right out of the gate, let me say that this book was a blast. I'd walked past it on several different trips to chapters and the cover / title really caught my eye. I finally picked it up and could not have been more pleased.Read More
I picked up Eleanor Oliphant as soon as it was released and read it in one sitting, but am just now getting around to actually reviewing it. I initially thought the concept sounded lovely needed a book with a cat on the cover for a reading challenge. Win win.Read More
I first came across Vicious many moons ago when it was still a new book. I picked up a copy because it sounded interesting, it then sat around collecting dust. I didn't love the cover and was skeptical about a superhero story that wasn't a comic book. Essentially, I'm a dumbass.Read More
Let me start by saying that I really wanted to like this book. I'd heard mixed things prior to reading it so I went in with an open mind. It sounded like it was gonna be a lot of fun.
It wasn't.Read More
I first discovered Matt's books several years ago when I happened upon The Humans at my local book store. It sounded fun and there was a dog on the cover, so I was really left with no choice but to buy it. By the time I'd closed the book it'd easily become my new all-time favourite and I was determined to hunt down and read everything he'd ever written. I mean like, within reason. Nothing weird.Read More
While the first book was phenomenal, it mainly serves as an introduction to the series and characters. There's a lot of development and flashbacks, which in no way takes away from the story. You can read my full review of The Damned here, I loved every single minute of it.Read More
The Word is Murder is the first book in a new murder mystery series staring Anthony Horowitz as himself alongside Detective Hawthorne who has tasked "Tony" with writing a true crime detective series about his case.Read More
The Impossible Fortress is a book I'd seen around online and decided to pick up on a whim while at Chapters. All I knew going in was that this was a love story to the 80's and, while at 27 I just missed the 80's, I was still really into the idea.Read More
Recreance, released earlier this year, is the first book in The Aeternum Chronicles and follows Oren as he escapes his home city with a quirky mystery-man after his parents are murdered. - Stay with me.Read More
I picked up this book on a whim while picking up shampoo at Walmart, the cover was rad and I really wanted to read a good thriller. I came home, however, with far more than just a thriller and shampoo (and not because I overspent at Walmart).Read More
Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland have created an awesome world with a believable and historically researched, scientific explanation for how and why magic and time travel both existed and no longer exist, but still exist. It's honestly just super fun, this is the most fun I've had reading a book in a long time.Read More
As a huge fan of the original Hater trilogy, I was beyond excited when David announced he was writing three new books that took place in the same universe, albeit from another perspective. I've been anticipating this book ever since and can now say with complete certainly, I was not let down or disappointed. It fully lived up to my expectations and has made me nostalgic for the original trilogy, which I plan to start re-reading again shortly.Read More
I'll admit going into this book that I was a bit skeptical it could live up to everything it claimed to be, "horror meets fantasy meets historical fiction". That's never easy to pull off. In reality, it far exceeded every one of my expectations. Throughout the course of the book you can really feel the passion that went into it and tell that it's more than just an awesome book about werewolves, it meant something to the person writing it. Though it's also definitely an awesome book about werewolves!
