Book Review: The Listening House

Having surpassed my Goodreads challenge for the year, I'm hoping to spend more time writing during the upcoming fall and winter months. That means I'll have less time for reading, but like any bookworm, I can't resist adding to that TBR list.

Hey, everyone. Last week was Labor Day in America, or what many call the unofficial end of summer.

Book Review: Home Before Dark

I’ll be honest. My first introduction to Riley Sager was his newest release Survive The Night which I found lacking in many ways. I was a bit skeptical about reading any of his other books, but I decided to check out Home Before Dark from my local library. Blurb What was it like?

Book Review: The Couple Next Door

Hey, everyone. Time for another Tuesday book review. I keep thinking my reading time will decrease as I spend more time writing, but that hasn't happened yet. Matter of fact, I upped my Goodreads challenge from 35 books to 50 books for the year. (I really need to write but that's another story.) This week's … Continue reading Book Review: The Couple Next Door
