The Body Will Follow
by Rob E. Boley

Not the Strangest but Strange.

So, I’m not really sure where to begin. I enjoyed the premise of the book and while I love supernatural horror. This bordered on body torture, (in my opinion) and was a bit graphic. Once the story unraveled and you find out what happened to Carrie it begins to make more sense. (More)

Mobile Phone Mock templateFinal Girls: A Novel
by Riley Sager

Ok, I know everyone says this, but this book really took me by surprise. I absolutely loved the way the book read. It was almost Halloween-Esq (or like most slasher flicks) as it went from the present day, and then back to what happened on that night. This book delves deeper into the Final Girl. (More)

This is a story about Nora Seed. Nora’s life is in freefall, and she feels like it’s not worth living. She has regrets about her mother’s death, she just got fired from her job, and there is resentment from her brother (Joe) about splitting up the band they started because it was too much pressure.

The Mother of Black Hollywood: A Memoir
by Jennifer Lewis

What can you say about The Mother of Black Hollywood. Not a damn thing according to Jennifer Lewis. I loved this candid, raw look into what made Jennifer … Jennifer and the lives she touched along the way. Her rise to Broadway, which segwayed into movies and then television, she doesn’t hold anything back. (More)

“If you leave a door half-open, soon you’ll hear the whispers spoken.”

A rhyme spoke amongst children and town folks about The Whisper Man. Children are being abducted in the small town of Featherbank. Gone without a trace, returned dead …but care for. These cases have haunted DI Willis for a decade, even though the original killer (The Whisper Man) was found. He lured his victims by whispering at their windows. (More)

The Family Upstairs: A Novel
by Lisa Jewell

The Family Upstairs is a captivating story surrounding a family that befriends the wrong people. The unassuming family would soon regret the decision made that would send everything they had come to know and understand into a tailspin. (More)

A Cut for A Cut
by Carol Wyer

This story started out great for but then slowed down. Even though I love a good crime story this one got hung up an additional storyline underneath the main story, and the author crossing the two. (Which by the way, was never truly resolved). (More)
