Finally Bought It!

I finally bought myself a book cart! I have been wanting one for so long but couldn’t decide and then I found one on Amazon that wasn’t extremely expensive and I liked the look of it so I figured it was time. I love it! I can’t believe it took me this long to buy one for myself.

Don’t Look Down by Hilary Davidson- Book Review

This was an enjoyable suspence/thriller read and also very fast paced. This is the second book in the Shadows of New York series. I was given the ARC for this book by the author to read and review. Although I haven’t read the first book in the series, I felt this book was still very easy to get into without missing too much from the previous book. I really enjoyed the characters, especially Sheryn Sterling and Rafael Mendoza who are the two main cops. I felt like their friendship/work relationship was relatable and had a wittiness about it that showed through. I also enjoyed the twist in the story that held my attention and continued to have me guessing. I would give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 but more if I had read the previous book so I knew more details about the characters and what they had been through.

Synopsis:

Jo Greaver is a model of success. Young and ambitious, she’s built a thriving beauty business from nothing. But she has secrets she’ll do anything to keep buried. When her blackmailer offers to meet, Jo expects to pay him off—but gets a bullet instead. Bleeding and in shock, Jo flees with no one to turn to.

When NYPD detective Sheryn Sterling and her partner, Rafael Mendoza, find Andray Baxter murdered in his own home—shot through the heart—everything points to Jo as the killer. Her blood is at the scene, and so are disturbing photos of her taken as a young teen. But Sheryn has doubts. Was the kindhearted Andray really a criminal? Why did he repeatedly report finding spyware in his apartment? Was there something shady about Jo’s sister dying a year earlier?

Something’s not right, and it’s up to Sheryn to piece together the sinister puzzle, no matter the cost.

The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James- Book Review

I can already tell you that this book will be in my top 10 this year. I absolutely loved it! I loved both the female leads, Viv and Carly and it felt easy to connect with them. The story haunted me every time I put it down and still haunts me since I finished it. If you read one thriller/suspense book this year then this one should be it. Thank you to @netgalley and @berkleypub for the ARC. This book will be published February 18th and you should definitely get it! I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Synopsis:

Upstate New York, 1982. Viv Delaney wants to move to New York City, and to help pay for it she takes a job as the night clerk at the Sun Down Motel in Fell, New York. But something isnʼt right at the motel, something haunting and scary.
Upstate New York, 2017. Carly Kirk has never been able to let go of the story of her aunt Viv, who mysteriously disappeared from the Sun Down before she was born. She decides to move to Fell and visit the motel, where she quickly learns that nothing has changed since 1982. And she soon finds herself ensnared in the same mysteries that claimed her aunt.


🎶 I’m on the right track, baby. I was born this way. 🎶

The Silent Ones by K.L. Slate- Book Review

I’m not going to lie. This book started off strong but was quite slow during the middle and then picked back up in the end. There was a family dynamic that had to be explained and while it was interesting, I kind of got bored a little. I also felt like a few of the character fell a little flat which made it hard for me to really connect with them. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️. There wasa twist at the end that I did enjoy and left me feeling happy about the ending but it took me a while to get to there.

Synopsis:

When ten-year-old cousins Maddy and Brianna are arrested for a terrible crime, Maddy’s mother Juliet cannot believe it. How could her bright, joyful daughter be capable of such a thing?  

As the small village community recoils in horror, the pressure of the tragedy blows Juliet and her sister’s lives apart. And things get even worse when their daughters retreat into a self-imposed silence. Can anyone reach Maddy and discover the truth before her fate is sealed?

Juliet is crushed. Nothing will ever be the same for her darling girl. But she knows that to find out what really happened that day, she and her sister must unlock the secrets of their own terrible past, a past they swore never to speak about again…

One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus- Book Review

If you are looking for a fast pace suspense book than look no further. I finished this book in two nights because it completely grabbed my attention from the first page until the last page. I had seen this book everywhere and kept putting off until last week. I can’t believe it took me so long to give in to it. I know the second book in the series was just published this week so I’m not putting it off this time. 😂 I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I’m hoping the second book in this series is just as good as the first since I enjoyed it so much.

Synopsis:
Pay close attention and you might solve this.
On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention. Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule. Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess. Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing. Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher. And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?
Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.
