***Synopsis copied from amazon.ca


4 out of 5 stars

I was hooked from the very first sentence!

I have heard so many amazing things about Gilly’s writing.ย Personally this was my first read by her. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will for sure be check out more of her work in the near future.

Gilly had a fascinating concept, executed it perfectly and brought it to life.

thumbnail_IMG_3295Both the plot and character growth was brilliant throughout. Gilly knows exactly how to set an eerie vibe while keeping the characters completely relate-able. The moment I figured I knew exactly what was happening and who was to blame there was a shift causing me to question all of my original thoughts.

I found The Nanny extremely consumable, itching to know who the criminal was.

Now you may be wondering how I could love it so much but only have given it a 4 out of 5 stars. The Nanny was written from multiple perspectives and although I love reading novels written in this form. Moments within someones story line it would jump back and forth between the current time and the past, with a choppy transition. Not wanting to be confused, this caused me to go back and re-read a few times. Or I would keep reading in hopes that things would start to piece together, which of course it did and I was not disappointed.

A psychological thriller at its best!



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

5 out of 5 stars

My oldest son and I had a blast reading this first edition to the FrightVision series and both agree on the 5 stars!

The Cursed Coin brought me right back to my childhood. I loved Goosebumps, especially the show.

You know the innocent kids, weird things start happening, parents are almost completely oblivious to what’s happening around them. Only for a huge plot twist at the end, when the parents come to understand what their kids were trying to tell them… yet a little to late, as their kids seem to already have it under control. OR…. better yet…..the parents are in on it!

We did NOT want to put this book down.ย  … “Oh just one more chapter!”

Incredible story with amazing characters.

RJ and his sister have one of the best siblings relationships I have read in a story. RJ may be a scaredy cat but when Shelly starts losing her confidence or seems to be in any sort of danger, he works hard to over come his fears. I also enjoyed the love RJ clearly had for his father. Although his father may not be a large character throughout the story, seeing that close relationship was a great addition.

Can the ever growing, strong relationships help RJ pull through all the mayhem? I guess you will just have to read for yourself.

FrightVision is bringing the modern day fresh new spin on Goosebumps and we are living for it!


Thank you so much to FrightVision for sending book one our way to review. You have created two new crazy fans!


And of course thank you all for reading

4 out of 5 stars

At first I wobbled between a 3.5 stars and a 4.

In the end this read struck me in a way and I knew it deserved the 4… and I will tell you why.

Kimi Eisele had a fantastic concept and she executed it perfectly.

This was unlike any post apocalyptic novel I have read before. Please keep in mind I am use to the fast pace, disease wiping out the world, zombies, evil humans struggling to survive and willing to do anything needed to do so….

thumbnail_IMG_2812The Lightest Objects In The Universe was different. It was a bit of a Showing the power of love even in the darkest of times.

A perfect balance of both plot and character growth throughout this read.ย  The relationships that existed prior to this angry flu and the relationships that grew during the story were memorable. You meet so many different characters, each one unique in their own way.

That being said, while reading this you need to be on the ball. Kimi introduces so many different side characters, while bouncing back and forth between Carson, Beatrix and also some moment glimpses into their lives prior to this epidemic. If you miss an important moment or a character introduction it may confuse you. So pay attention!

If you are a lover of any post apocalyptic, dystopian, science fiction reads than give The Lightest Object In The Universe a go. It may be different then what you are use to but I don’t think it will disappoint.

4 out of 5 stars

The Black Orchids is chilling, yet sweet.

Ellie’s past is haunting her! You can feel the terrifying memories radiating off the page. Yet her present is full of positive vibes, with new friends and a potential love.

I am honestly shocked that this is Ishita’s debut novel!

It was fantastic! Covering both your dark and eerie while having a light, fluffy side as well. The writing was crisp and smooth making it a delightfully easy read.

Keeping you on your toes. Wanting to know who or what the figure hiding in the shadows is!

I love supporting indie authors and would most definitely recommend this read!

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!



And of course thank you all for reading.

“What does it take to believe in the unbelievable?”



4 out of 5 stars

Lionel might be a reporter, but he would make an excellent detective.

I am a sucker for a good thriller and Ghosts of Gotham had me hooked right from the beginning, it was intense and fast paced. The twist around 30% in had me buzzing. I don’t know how Craig could have made it any more exciting, yet he did just that.

Lionel faces some extreme moments and will cross paths with some extraordinary people.

This book is hard to explain without giving any spoilers, but Craig has created a fierce world.

I truly believe so many people will admire this read.

An action packed mystery, paranormal, thriller… twisted with fantasy. How can you pass that up?

A Gentlewoman’s Guide to Murder by Victoria Hamilton

51tjECuN8KL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_

Scandal and slayings among Regency London’s elite

The shocking murder of Sir Henry Claybourne leaves Regency London shaken and horror-struck. But for genteel spinster Miss Emmeline St. Germaine, the crime slices far too close to home. Just hours before the knight’s death she held a dagger to him, threatening him to stay silent as she rescued a scullery maid he had procured for his pleasure.

Did the manโ€•or womanโ€•who murdered the knight know of her visit? Her secret identity at risk, her reputation and life in jeopardy, Emmeline must solve the crime or face scandalous exposure and ruination, or worseโ€•the hangman’s nooseโ€•for a crime she did not commit.

Ghosts of Gotham by Craig Schaefer

516SoYhVTCL

Irresistibly drawn to mysteries, if only to debunk them, reporter Lionel Page exposes supernatural frauds, swindlers, and charlatans. His latest case is an obsessionโ€”at least for an ancient and wealthy heiress: verify the authenticity of a lost Edgar Allan Poe manuscript circulating through New York Cityโ€™s literary underworld. But the shrewd Regina Dunkle offers more than money. Itโ€™s a pact. Fulfill her request, and Lionelโ€™s own notorious buried past, one heโ€™s been running from since he was a child, will remain hidden.

As Lionelโ€™s quest begins, so do the warnings. And where rare books go, murder follows. Itโ€™s only when Lionel meets enigmatic stranger Madison Hannah, his personal usher into the cityโ€™s secret history, that he realizes heโ€™s being guided by a force more powerful than logicโ€ฆand that he isnโ€™t just following a story. Heย isย the story.

Now that the true purpose of his mission is revealing itself in the most terrifying ways, it may finally be time for Lionel to believe in the unbelievable.

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.

4 out of 5 stars!

Rebecca truly blew me away! Classics, aside from horror/mystery classics can be very hit and miss for me. I think it may be a bit of the instant love in most and the unusual idea of romance.

But this Gothic romance sucked me in and Daphne’s writing is absolutely brilliant!

Maxim was a very heinous, unpleasant man and his young, new bride was childish… just completely juvenile. Yet they truly made the perfect team as the story developed and were surely the perfect couple.

This story is twisted, dark and very unnatural, but you won’t be able to put it down.

I will absolutely be looking into more of Daphne’s novels, especially if it is anything as exquisite as Rebecca.


And of course thank you all for reading.
