May was a good review month, I read some good horror, one historical Fiction and some good mysteries. I read six books this month. One Five star novel ad the rest were all four stars. I read two advanced copies thanks to netgalley. I broke my record with 42 views in one day this month. I received a great deal of feedback in the comments which is really encouraging and helps make me a better bookblogger.
Five Star Reviews:
TH1RT3EN by Steve Cavanagh – The tag line begs you to read it. The Serial killer isn’t on trial, he’s part of the jury. The book is smart and a well paced thriller, that has a lot of fun with the scenario. This book comes out on August 2nd.
Four Star Reviews:
Stranger Things: Darkness on the Edge of Town by Adam Christopher – A good filler for your anticipation before Stranger Things Season 3 comes out in July. This book is a prequel about a much more chipper James Hopper when he had a child and a wife and lived in New York in 1977. This novel still has that Stranger Things vibe of a supernatural world waiting. This was released on May 28th.
Sour Candy By Kealan Patrick Burke – a really good novella with lots and twist and turns packed into a 76 page story that is vey creepy. It would make a hell of a good Twilight Zone episode.
Goosebumps: Welcome to Dead House by R. L. Stine – This throwback read reminded me when I grew up being a 90’s kid. The story was pretty good, with a good little twist at the end. I was a little shocked at just how much gore I read, but as a kid I would’ve loved it.
Dear Mrs. Bird by A. J. Pearce – A quaint little story that takes place in Britain during the Blitzkrieg during World War II. It manages to balance both heart breaking and heart warming.
Case Histories by Hate Atkinson – A great mystery, that is all about the characters and the tragedy of having unanswered questions about a crime. This is the first Jackson Brodie novel
