4 out of 5 stars! (for the whole collection)

First off I have to start by saying how proud I am of Nick! Nick is a fellow BookTuber and it’s always exciting to see people whom I consider friends making their dreams become a reality. Now to all my readers out there, although Nick is a friend this will not stop me from providing an honest review.

Graymatter is a fun collection! and by that I mean dark, gruesome, spooky but loads of fun. Some great concepts here! These short stories are those type of stories narrated by the main character that end with a big cliffhanger….leaving you wanting more. Oh and I can’t forget each has a great moral to the story as well.

While reading this collection I felt as if I was chilling with Nick while he told me some truly eerie stories. Nick has a way of writing different characters and really bringing their personality traits forward. For example one story is about a dognapper, he makes a living taking other people dogs and than just hangs at home until the owner puts out a reward. Once they do he jumps on it claiming his prize. The guy is an honest dirt-bag and I was appalled the whole time I read this story! Honestly, if you can feel those emotions while reading that’s when you know the author did something right. These are things you just don’t forget even after finishing the read.

There is one tiny negative that pulled my star rating back on this horror collection. Although an editor was hired there seems to be a lot that was missed. Spelling mistakes, grammar, repetitiveness and some sentences weren’t even proper English. Although I can understand these mistakes as everyone is human and while the author is pouring their thoughts and passions out onto paper it takes a lot of time to make the story crisp and clean. Multiple read through’s alone, even before editing (if it’s an option, which isn’t the case for most indie authors). That being said even after taking these steps and even hiring an editor a lot was missed. Although I am not one to talk negative about others or tell them how to do their job, I really feel whoever did edit this collection for Nick did not provide the service he paid for and I hope this won’t deter people from picking it up. Editing can really hurt an author! Some people won’t even finish a read or give it an awful review solely on the editing.

All in all honestly this collection was great! Again, Nick had great concepts, awesome characters and not to forget your mind and emotions will be stirred. I say it’s totally worth giving it a go. Also if you would like to check out my video review on my BookTube channel that would be awesome!

Thank you so much Nick for sending me a copy to read and review. I am so proud to own a physical copy and to have it sitting on my shelves. I can’t wait to see what else you have for us in the future.

Fascinating read! Amazing world building.

Not to mention the cover is absolutely breathtaking but once you dive into the story you see just how vivid the true guts of this story is!

When Palmer Pickering reached out to me to see if I would review her book, as soon as I read the synopsis I was sold. Of course I would, then she mentioned to me that if I enjoyed Dune at all she thinks I would enjoy her read since Dune is one of her favourite books. Then I was REALLY REALLY sold!

Palmer doesn’t focus on any one particular item in this story. Every piece of it is done just right! From the story line to the characters it’s the perfect balance. You have the twins, you have their connection, you have the people and their loved ones around them and you have chaos running rampant throughout. Fear was placed upon their people and all hope was placed upon Cassidy and Torr. Moon Deeds is the perfect mix of relationships, friendships, romance and hardship. Such a magnificent world both on and off the Moon.

I would be lying if I didn’t say there weren’t times I was confused. There is so much going on in Moon Deeds and if you aren’t concentrating you may miss a vital piece of the story. This was not a slight against the writing itself. My confusion was 100% my own, I was picking the book up at the wrong times while too many things were happening around me and interruptions were unavoidable. So, if I could give any tip on how to truly soak up each bit of this incredible read it would be to make sure while reading that you are able to give every bit of your attention to this busy world you are about to dive into.

I can’t wait to read on with this saga and to sink further into Palmer’s deep, in-depth world! Thank you again Palmer for sending me a copy for review!

Genre: Young Adult | Historical Fiction

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.



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

5 out of 5 stars

The Silhouette has a Phantom of the Opera vibe, which of course I was completely digging.

This Lovecraftian romance will pull you in.

Jack is such a kind-hearted soul. Obviously why he is living his best life possible.

Anastasia was dealt such an unfair hand in life. Again, she has such a soft, loving soul. Seeing her feel the need to hide from the world is heart breaking.

Jack was meant to meet Anastasia. He wouldn’t stop caring, he wouldn’t give up on her. He knows Anastasia needs to stop hiding and start living her life again. The relationship these characters develop is extraordinary and truly inspiring.

The meaning of beauty truly runs deeper then skin.ย 

The Silhouette is a fast, easy read. Packed with love able characters… and some so not love able.ย 

William’s writing is exceptional, you won’t be able to stop reading.

The Silhouette will become a craving. Needing to know exactly what happened to Anastasia and how extensive her injuries are.

Another incredible masterpiece by an indie author.ย 

Looking forward to future work by William Ray Middleton!

5 out or 5 stars

Starting Red I immediately started to feel my anxiety raise. Abigail gave me such an over whelming feeling of unease. That feeling quickly increased to panic and terror. When reading you can’t just simply cover your eyes during a scary part like you can during a movie.ย I found myself terrified to go on but yet needing to know how it ends.

Red kept me on the edge of me set and my heart pounding so hard, as if it was trying to leap right out of my chest.

Red certainly packs a haunting punch and will leave you completely filled with jitters. How it is even possible to deliver this much horror in a merely 51 pages is astounding!

Kelly’s writing will inject your brain with all sorts of new fears!

If your love is psychological thrillers, Kelly will easily become a new favourite.

A perfect read for around the Halloween season especially, if you are into that seasonal reading.

Enjoy!


And of course thank you all for reading.

5 out of 5 stars! – Incredibly charming!

I adore novels written in a past setting, exactly what I was expecting Courting Mr. Lincoln to be… since it’s based in the 1800’s, but this was completely different. Louis has written a book in the modern day, set in the past, yet reads as a genuine classic……Brillant!

Miss Todd is smart, independent and has such a strong knowledge of politics. Truly a well rounded young lady.

Lincoln’s also smart, determined and very hardworking. He has goals and is working towards them. Although he is missing proper manners and does not have the perfect gentlemen style, just yet. Lack of funds doesn’t help with that situation, but a great friend could become very helpful with that.

This is where Joshua Speed comes in. He is truly wonderful! (Spoiler… I think Speed wasย  my favourite character!).ย Speed is an incredible man, with so much warmth in his heart. Speed keeps a great pride for those he is close to, especially Lincoln.

Louis Bayard has created such a marvellous read! and I couldn’t be happier to have this wonderful addition to my shelves.

5 out of 5 stars

I needed more poetry in my life… And Let The Dark Speak was the perfect addition to my shelves.

Beau’s collection will bring all sorts of emotions to the surface. Floods of pain, love, frustration, happiness, anger and warmth.

Each piece is so beautifully written, it will leap right off the page and stick with you.

One I believe all should pick up, poetry lover or not. This may be the collection for you!

Absolutely intensely breathtaking!


And of course thank you all for reading

All Men Are Assholes (…And All Women Are Crazy) by Jordan West

Don’t let the title fool you! This book is so much more than just some comical dating advice.

Perhaps you currently have an awful dating life, are in a dying relationship or are past those days and just want to know you are not the only one that had to endure these moments in your love life.

From advice to research to even an asshole and crazy scale, you also get a walk through of Jordan’s own personal love life.

4.5 Stars out of 5

I love that this novel is not bias towards either sex! Us Women can be just as much of the problem as men, even if we don’t want to believe it.

All Men Are Assholes (… And All Women Are Crazy) is a heart wrenching, raw, intense read with a burst of humour throughout. Jordan truly has a way with words.

I found this book to be very relatable to the majority of my relationships in my younger years. But Jordan’s were on a much deeper scale then my own, some of the things Jordan had to endure is angering…. or perhaps that is just the crazy in me.

Truly a strong, impressive women to go through all and come out the other side laughing at her past and ready to share it with the world.

Thank you so much Jordan for sending me a copy of your immensely accurate read! I enjoyed it incredibly much. This truly is a read for everyone to enjoy

“Vividly rendered and inspired by true events”.



5 out of 5 stars!

Absolutely sensational!

This historical fiction is dazzling and devastating all in one. Pam’s writing is absolutely incredible and her dedicated research while creating this masterpiece is remarkable. Not to mention her transition back and forth from past to present throughout this novel is flawless!

I adored reading from the three different perspectives, and fell hard for the characters! Each has their own warming yet heart breaking story.

Grace’s determination, Eleanor’s passion and Marie’s strength!

The Lost Girls of Paris pulled me in and completely absorbed me. I just had to know what was going to happen next!

Another heart-wrenching, breathtaking read.


And of course thank you all for reading
