Review: Annihilation (Southern Reach #1) by Jeff VanderMeer

Image
Available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; all the members of the second expedition committed suicide; the third expedition died in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another; the members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within months of their return, all had died of aggressive cancer.

This is the twelfth expedition.

Their group is made up of four women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain and collect specimens; to record all their observations, scientific and otherwise, of their surroundings and of one another; and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself.

They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X d…

Review: Stolen by Julie Kenner

Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Melissa Tanner is just your average, everyday cat burglar, desperately trying to walk the straight and narrow path. So wouldn’t it figure that on the night she’s trying to return some jewelry, she’d find herself caught up in the arms of gorgeous Kyle Radley? The situation could have had some interesting possibilities—if Kyle hadn’t been an ex-cop! Right or wrong, Kyle can’t help wanting Mel… and he has a feeling the sexy felon has a weakness for him, too. But Mel says she’s pulled her last heist and wants nothing to do with a man who will always see her as a criminal. Still, Kyle is determined. He’s going to catch his thief—and then spend his days convincing her that a life sentence is a very good thing…

Review:
Stolen was a cute read. I loved Melissa and Kyle and how they were thrown together. She is trying to walk the straight and narrow path, trying not to be a burglar, trying to live by the letter of the law. Only when her gran…

PERMISSION IS BOOK THREE IN THE PERVERSION TRILOGY

Review:

Finally Permission is here! We get to see how everything works out for Grim and Emma Jean!

This story starts off right where the last one ended (so if you haven't read the prior two books you need to in order to read this one. It is not a standalone story). Emma Jean was taken away and Grim had to try and get her back...only he is a wanted fugitive so...that might b…

Review: The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

The Bram Stoker Award-winning author of A Head Full of Ghosts adds an inventive twist to the home invasion horror story in a heart-palpitating novel of psychological suspense that recalls Stephen King’s Misery, Ruth Ware’s In a Dark, Dark Wood, and Jack Ketchum’s cult hit The Girl Next Door.

Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road.

One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, "None of what’s going to happen is your fault". Three more strangers then arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing o…

Sky's the Limit (Doomsday Preppers #1) by Elle Aycart

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Tired of waiting for her big break in the fashion industry, Sky Gonzalez, eternal part-time student and overworked retail drone, quits her job, sublets her New York apartment, and embarks on a semester abroad study program in Paris. Paris! Time to throw caution to the winds and jump-start her dreams. What’s the worst that could happen?

How about getting sent to the wrong Paris? As in Paris-frigging-Minnesota?

Bye-bye career dreams. Bye-bye glamour and haute couture. Hello flannel shirts, mind-numbing cold, zero bars on the cell phone, and socially challenged mountain men with tons of unruly facial hair.

So yeah, let the truck barreling her way hit her, please. Less painful.

Logan should have dodged the little lost waif and kept on driving. Who in their right mind walked in the middle of the road, dressed in white from head to high heels, during a snowstorm? Clueless city girls, that's who. Sky is all that Logan has gladly left be…

Blog Tour Review: Across the Horizon by Aly Martinez

Image
Now available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:
“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.

I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it...

So does heartbreak.

Review:

Across the Horizon was a wonderful read. It is not as heart-wrenching as some of the author's other works, not as devastating as The Darkest Sunrise (note: if you have read The Darkest Sunrise books you will see the characters from that in here as this i…
