    BOOK REVIEW : BLACKTHORN BOOK TOURS – NOTHING GOOD HAPPENS AFTER MIDNIGHT : A SUSPENSE MAGAZINE ANTHOLOGY

    I have loved reading anthologies in the past, and so when I saw this title on the Blackthorn Book Tours website, I knew I needed to sign up for this one. This is an anthology of 13 thriller/mystery/suspense short stories compiled together to give us a wonderful collection of quick page-turners. All the stories were engaging, and I found them to be very much enjoyable. I loved how this anthology helped me get out of my funky mood with entertaining stories that made me hooked to the book from page one. I have a few stories that I thoroughly enjoyed and a few that I found to be unique. Overall…

    BOOK REVIEW : THE APPARITION PHASE BY WILL MACLEAN

    The Apparition Phase by Will Maclean is gothic horror fiction. I am not a big fan of horror in general because I am a wimp when it comes to the genre. But for some reason, I wanted to read this one when I saw it on NetGalley. It had similar themes to Girls Of Brackenhill and Home Before Dark. The secluded gothic-looking mansion in the countryside, surrounded by forest, ghosts, and supernatural events...Ring any bells?? So it is safe to say I was intrigued. It was spooky and dark!! The story setting and the writing was very atmospheric and eery. The gothic vibe was ever-present throughout the book. The dark…

    BOOK REVIEW : HOME BEFORE DARK BY RILEY SAGER

    Home Before Dark is my second book from Riley Sager. I read Lock Every Door last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the author's writing and was fascinated by his style of storytelling. This story was no different. I am also excited about the arrival of my copy of this book from a book subscription box!! It was an alternate choice for a different book and I am so glad I picked this one. The whole ambiance of the book is the perfect setting for horror. The paranormal elements in the book within the book were brilliant. I did get scared at times, and I had a difficult time…
