5 out of 5 stars

A psychological thriller at its best!

Your Move is intense.

It will have you on the end of your seat and your heart pumping.

Michelle blew me away with her writing style, she did so many things right. Not only did she dedicate the perfect amount of time to the plot, really building the perfect layout for the story line but Your Move is also extremely character driven. It’s not easy to get that perfect delicate balance of both worlds but Michelle nailed it.

thumbnail_IMG_3945Your Move will keep you completely engrossed throughout the whole read. Just as you are getting comfortable and really feel you know where the story is going, Michelle throws you for a complete spiral.

Claire will experience memories of her past or the story may jump from present to the future, yet you don’t get a full view into Claire’s history and why she’s hiding. You get that perfect tidbit here and there… Just enough to keep you gripping on… wanting more.

I admired Claire’s strength! I also adored some of the relationships that started throughout this novel, so heart warming and a large piece of the story you will want to cling onto.

Your Move is everything I could ask for in a psychological thriller. It will really mess with your mind. Be prepared!



Thank you so much to Michelle Young for sending me this copy for review.

Michelle is a Canadian author of two poetry books, Salt & Light (2017) and Without Fear (2019). Your Move is her debut novel.

BRILLIANT!ย 

Honestly, this review could stop right here! Simply………Brilliant.ย 

Not only does Gold have some of the most unusual concepts for his novels but his writing is absolutely phenomenal.

Lost In The Clouds is such a thought provoking, profound read. Neville is faced with the hardest moment in his life. Having to sever all ties with the life you lived, saying goodbye to those you love and things that were near and dear to your heart is hard enough. Finding out not everything you thought you knew was honest. This only stirs the pot of emotions much deeper.

Through Neville’s desperate journey to find that closure and to be able to move on, not wanting to face a consequence worse than death itself wasn’t the only heart-full piece of this read. Neville learns about himself, he realises some negative moments in his life he can’t only point the finger at others… he is just as much to blame. This sat heavy with me! It made me think back on my own choices and whether I dealt with them in the purest of heart or out of anger.

One paragraph in this book really stuck with me and will forever have me thinking.

“Who am I to judge what gives us our identity? Many struggle to find meaning in a hundred lifetimes. If you were lucky enough to have a purpose day in and day out, well, perhaps you lived more than most. And if you don’t regret it, why should I regret it for you?”ย 

I took so much from this incredibly powerful read. Be honest to yourselves, be honest to others, have the utmost respect for everyone and everything around you. Don’t ever take advantages of moments, hold your memories close. Life is meaningful and we only get one to live. Don’t have any regrets.



Thank you so much to R.K. Gold for sending Lost In The Clouds to me. R.K. did not ask me for a full review but I was so moved by it….I had to.



And of course thank you all for reading.

What a fun read! Such a great concept!

A book about books. Something all of us bookworms can relate to and enjoy!

I found Suggested Readingย refreshing. With a well written plot and a character driven story it was a light-hearted read that touches on some heavy topics.thumbnail_IMG_3864

Clara’s passion for reading and her love for books was admirable. By starting the locker library she shared this love with others and impacted their lives greatly. What Clara may not have know was how much she was going to grow from this herself and the incredible friends she was going to make.

So many hidden messages within this text as well. Don’t judge people by how they look, the amount of money they have or the people they hang around with. You never know what’s going on inside peoples heads, they may surprise you. Also… never give up! When you have a passion fight for your beliefs whether you are right or succeed it’s all worth it.

Dave’s attention to detail with each book mentioned throughout Suggested Reading was impressive. You can see his time and dedication while writing his masterpiece. This only added to an already enjoyable read.

Suggested Reading also fits well with the “cancelled culture” currently circulating today.

All in all I did enjoy this book and would recommend you giving it a go. Besides I am sure you want to know just how Clara pulled this off…don’t you?

3 out of 5 stars

Butterfly yellow is a heavy story about the awful kidnappings that happened during the Vietnam War and sits close to home for Thanhha Lai herself. She fled Vietnam during the war with her family and ended up in Alabama, USA.

Knowing the concept of Butterfly Yellow sat so close to her personal life story, right away I thought I was going to be raving about this read.

Although the story is heart wrenching I didn’t enjoy it near as much as I thought I would. Which honestly breaks my heart to say and makes me feel awful, especially being such a thumbnail_IMG_3740raw look into true moments from the past and touching on awful moments that still happen to this day in some countries.

Butterfly Yellow had huge potential to be an extremely powerful story.

The first 70-80 pages of this book started off amazing with Hang finally reaching the US to find her brother, who she believed to still be in danger. But as Hang met LeeRoy a wonderful young man willing to help Hang in her desperate travels. The story started to fall apart. I found it very choppy and as if details were left out. I was finding myself having a hard time following what was happening, almost as if the plot needed more context. There were also added moments of drama that I felt didn’t need to be in this already overwhelming sad story.

I have heard raving reviews on Thanhha Lai’s Inside Out & Back Again, which is written in verse. There were moments while reading Butterfly Yellow that I felt Lai was almost heading toward writingย  in that format. Maybe that would have brought this read to life for me….. I don’t know.

All this being said, Butterfly Yellow is not an awful novel and many would connect with it on a different level than I have.

I am not upset by any means that I read Butterfly Yellow. It brings attention to events that shouldn’t be ignored or forgotten and if history is an interest of yours at all, than I do suggest you give this one a go.

5 out of 5 stars – for both

Cameron has done it! He is a new favourite author of mine.

I honestly had never read a 80’s slasher horror read before. To be honest I never even realised anything such as this existed within sub genres in horror. Until I took part in the BookTube’s: Bloody Beach Readatlong. Thank goodness for this readalong held by incredible BookTubers because I have now found one of my favourite type of reads within horror.

Kill River and Kill River 2 read exactly as 80’s slasher films. The first half is a slower paced read. Giving the perfect moment to introduce the characters, get a feel for their personalities and what they were all about. The plot was described in such perfect detail. I could really envision the scenes and where the characters where in each moment. It also gave me time to pick and choose my favourite characters and not so favourite.

thumbnail_IMG_3674Iย  found myself even before the creepy moments started working around in my head who I thought was going to be killed first and potentially how they were going to die.

You know….just based on your typical slasher film rules. You know … those rules….If you don’t… than I don’t think you are a true slasher films lover!

Cameron’s description for both the characters and the settings were phenomenal and without being overly wordy. I felt as though I was seeing everything Cyndi and her friends where in the moment, right down to the beautifully landscaped water park decorated with the perfect wildflowers and other designs. Now this may become to hard for some to read when the murder scenes start. They did get extremely gruesome at times, so be sure you have a good strong stomach…. I can’t stress this enough.

These reads are not for everyone. But if you want to experience some of that 80’s slasher film nostalgic feels be sure to pick up both Kill River and its amazing sequel Kill River 2.

5 out of 5 stars

The slasher horror read with a deep underlining story.

Fat Camp was brilliant.

Phillip had lost so much in his close family life. Decides its time to do better by himself, runs off to camp Wasicu to lose weight. Only to lose much more than what he signed up for. Yet the strength that builds within Phillip is inspiring. He himself is a force to be reckoned with.

thumbnail_IMG_3665The slasher moments within Fat Camp were well done. They reminded me of a true slasher film. Quick, unexpected and shocking. Also not over the top, quiet realistic which only added to the chill factor.

I know the focus for most while reading this book is the murder scenes but I couldn’t help but get pulled right into the character growth as well. Existing relationships that flourished and new relationships launched. All while getting your quench of shocking, gory moments.

Moral of the story with Fat Camp. Don’t mess around with others, be careful how you wrong people. You never know who will decide to get an awful revenge!

Fat Camp was the perfect edition to my summer reads! Thank goodness my son was back from his summer camp long before I read this.

I would highly recommend this read. Sneak it in before our summer is completely gone.

If you know anything about David Koepp or have read up on him. Koepp is an American screenwriter and director. Best known for his work on Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, Panic Room and War of Worlds.

I could completely see Cold Storage being adapted into film. It absolutely read like a movie setting.

You start off with your flash back into 1987, where you are introduced to the organism and find out just how much destruction it can cause.

Flash forward into the modern day and in comes new characters that are completely in the dark and have no idea what exactly is in the sub-level of this building or the awful things that happened decades ago.

Until the story takes a harsh turn, bringing the experienced together with the inexperienced in a rush to save humanity.

The reason for me knocking 1 star from my rating was how slow the plot and character growth was, at least after the original impressive flash back in 1987. The next few chapters seem to drag on a bit. Also some content in my opinion felt like unneeded story filler. But I tell you, once you get through the slow gap in the first half of the book it really starts picking up.

thumbnail_IMG_3406Cold Storage becomes chilling. I felt I couldn’t put the book down until I knew exactly what happened and if the trio was successful.

The outcome was exactly what I was hoping for and that is not always the case when reading a book. This was very refreshing.

If you are a lover of scifi, horror, mystery, thriller. I think you will devour Cold Storage.

I would love to see Cold Storage on the big screen one day.


Thank you so much to HarperCollins Canada for sending this arc my way for review.

Publisher: Ecco

Release date: September 3, 2019
