Where the Crawdads Sing–Delia Owens

This book has some of the most amazing, beautiful description I’ve ever read, as well as a murder mystery to push things along. Highly recommend for everyone!

sHotgun lovesongs– Nickolas Butler

This is the kind of book that makes me jealous as an author. Incredible writing, real characters, and gripping tension. My favorite read of 2020!

Empire Falls– Richard Russo

This is one of the best small-town books I’ve ever read, and touches on so many emotions. A perfectly written, exquisitely detailed read.

Here to Stay– Mark Edwards

Part 1 of catching up on Mark Edwards releases. This one is really good, a bit predictable at times, but another great thriller.

The House Guest– Mark Edwards

Part 2 of catching up on Mark Edwards releases. A wild ride throughout, and one of the weirder books he’s written. Enjoyable, for sure, but not what I expected.

The Little Stranger– Sarah Waters

I sat on this review for three weeks… and I still think this is the best book I’ve ever read. Anyone know a book club/therapy group?

Because She Loves Me–Mark Edwards

Possibly my favorite Mark Edwards book, this entire book seems to be a twisting plot and a thrilling story.

I Am Watching You– Teresa Driscoll

First book I’ve read from this author. Very entertaining. One of the better “bestsellers” I’ve read.

The Venus Trap–Louise Voss

A great, frightening book that has more secrets than a big, old, scary castle.

Killing Cupid–Louise Voss and Mark Edwards

Another fantastic book by this duo, which keeps producing great, character-driven books.

The Magpies–Mark Edwards

A great book by Mark Edwards; one of the best urban horrors.

Don’t Look Inside–Spike Black

An intriguing, action-packed horror novel with lots of deaths. Has a lot of flaws, though.

The Claiming–Ike Hamill

By once-indie author Ike Hamill, this book was a complete and pleasant surprise.

The Girl on the Train–Paula Hawkins

An awesome book, except for the last two or three chapters.

The Strange Case Of Dr. jekyll and Mr. HYDE–robert Louis Stevenson

A classic, but it holds up surprisingly well. One of the first multiple-personality twists

Forward Slash–Louise Voss and Mark Edwards

This book really shows the dark side of internet dating, and strangers in general.

Follow You Home–Mark Edwards

An intriguing prospect, but not quite as excellent as Edwards’ other work.

Murder on the Orient Express–Agatha Christie

The ultimate murder-mystery.

Leave This Place–Spike Black

A fast-paced, entertaining read that will suck you in, but also leave you disappointed.

It–Stephen King

Excessively long, barely scary. I have some thoughts.

Her Final Breath (Tracy Crosswhite #2)–Robert Dugoni

Book 2 of the action-packed, mysterious series by Robert Dugoni. It’s a nice series, but I don’t need to read any more of it.

Hikers: Part One–Lauren Alego

One of the most underrated books I’ve ever read. This one deserves a lot more reads.

My Sister’s Grave (Tracy Crosswhite #1)–Robert Dugoni

The first book in this mysterious, thrilling series.
