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
