Imaginary Friend By Stephen Chbosky- Book Review

Let me first start off by saying that yes, this book is long, and while I do think it could have been a little shorter, it’s so worth the read. This is an amazing thriller that will have your pulse racing within the first couple of chapters. It’s a race against time between good and evil that left me completely entranced with every page I turned. This book is so incredibly good, it’s literary genius. If you have time to read this in October then I highly encourage you to. It fits in perfectly for a thriller this month. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫. I would probably have given it 5 stars if it was a little shorter because there are areas where is dragged on a little. I thought it was about to end until I look at how much time was left and I still had another 200 pages left. 😂

Synopsis:

We can swallow our fear or let our fear swallow us.
Single mother Kate Reese is on the run. Determined to improve life for her and her son, Christopher, she flees an abusive relationship in the middle of the night with her child. Together, they find themselves drawn to the tight-knit community of Mill Grove, Pennsylvania. It’s as far off the beaten track as they can get. Just one highway in, one highway out. At first, it seems like the perfect place to finally settle down. Then Christopher vanishes. for six long days, no one can find him. Until Christopher emerges from the woods at the edge of town, unharmed but not unchanged. He returns with a voice in his head only he can hear, with a mission only he can complete: Build a treehouse in the woods by Christmas, or his mother and everyone in the town will never be the same again.

My Happy Place

I love second hand book shops and always find at least a hand full of books for less than $10. We have a 2nd and Charles in the city where I live and I visit this place at least twice a month. It’s definitely one of my happy places.

Book Mail

Book Mail is one of the best days ever! I love opening my door to a package full of new books to read and review! Thank you so much to @penguinrandomhouse for all these amazing books!

The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison

I’ve had this book on my tbr list for a while and I don’t know why I have continued to put off reading it but I finally read it and holy hell it was completely worth it. This story was so detailed in the depth it went to explain the characters and their history. This book was creepy on a whole new level. Imagine being obsessed with an object but that obsession continues to pull you into a black whole. I kept thinking of the ring from The Lord of the Rings and everyone calling it my precious but instead of a gold item it was with young teenagers. I really enjoyed this read and will continue to read the rest of this series by Dot Hutchison which is called The Collection. It makes me look at Butterflies a whole different way. 😂 I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫. This book is available for free through Kindle Unlimited.

Synopsis:

Near an isolated mansion lies a beautiful garden.

In this garden grow luscious flowers, shady trees…and a collection of precious “butterflies”—young women who have been kidnapped and intricately tattooed to resemble their namesakes. Overseeing it all is the Gardener, a brutal, twisted man obsessed with capturing and preserving his lovely specimens.

When the garden is discovered, a survivor is brought in for questioning. FBI agents Victor Hanoverian and Brandon Eddison are tasked with piecing together one of the most stomach-churning cases of their careers. But the girl, known only as Maya, proves to be a puzzle herself.

As her story twists and turns, slowly shedding light on life in the Butterfly Garden, Maya reveals old grudges, new saviors, and horrific tales of a man who’d go to any length to hold beauty captive. But the more she shares, the more the agents have to wonder what she’s still hiding…

Save Your Breath by Melinda Leigh- Book Review

I’ve started my month of thrillers with this book. This is the 6th book in the Morgan Dane series by Melinda Leigh. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series and this one did not disappoint. I still love the characters from Morgan, Lance and Sharp to a newer character who is Olivia. It’s easy thriller read that is also hard for me to put down so I was able to read this book within two nights. It had me guessing until the very end. If you haven’t read this series then definitely give it a try. I was able to read this one for free through Kindle Unlimited. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I already can’t wait for the next book.

Synopsis:

When true-crime writer Olivia Cruz disappears with no signs of foul play, her new boyfriend, Lincoln Sharp, suspects the worst. He knows she didn’t leave willingly and turns to attorney Morgan Dane and PI Lance Kruger to find her before it’s too late.

As they dig through Olivia’s life, they are shocked to discover a connection between her current book research on two cold murder cases and the suicide of one of Morgan’s prospective clients.

As Morgan and Lance investigate, the number of suspects grows, but time is running out to find Olivia alive. When danger comes knocking at their door, Morgan and Lance realize that they may be the killer’s next targets.
