*Arc Review* Bring Me Back- B.A. Paris

“Bizarrely, the overriding emotion I feel is shame, that at forty-one years old, and six-foot-four, a few little dolls can strike such terror in me.”

B.A. Paris is back with a novel that will shock you up until the very end. There were so many twists and turns that I never knew where we were going to end up. I always come to expect something shocking when it comes to her books and she doesn’t disappoint with this heart stopper.

This is one of those thrillers where I’m still running every inch of the book through my head and it won’t let up. I’m analyzing every piece of evidence and I’ve finished this hours ago.

The characters, the buildup, the shocking twists, and that end will have your mind reeling. Not a lot of books make me feel uncomfortable to be in my own house. This one spooked me and I’m not sure I want to trust anyone anymore.

Thank you, St. Martins Press for the galley and for spooking my day!

You might want to sleep with the lights on tonight and lock the door!!!

Good reads Monday

This time around I had to go near my front of my good reads tbr and this may sound bad but my book is

And just never got to it. But I should have had since in acknowledgments I’m in there since the author needed help with people who worked at haunted houses and I worked at one but shockingly we didn’t meet in a book group we met in a neopets group. Yes I said that right neopets. Which is still around but barely thriving. And best part about these series since it’s mystery each book can be read as it’s story.

So hope you check it out. I know I will be soon.

*Arc Review* Carnival Magic- Amy Ephron

“Remember, sometimes the best way to see someone again is not to say good-bye.”

We all have those fond memories of the Carnival. Where you begged and pleaded for your parents to take you. And when you finally get there, the air felt different. Like maybe you were in a different world. But in the end, we all had that same feeling, as if that place held all the answers to the universe and we all left with a little magic in our hearts. This is what that book reminded me of. All those fond memories from the past that you hold so dear to your heart.

It took some time for me to actually get into this one. And It kind of dragged for me until the hall of mirrors. After you are introduced to that clever trick, that is when the story fully develops.

The brother and sister combo is really sweet and you cheer them on as they go on one wacky adventure at the carnival. We all should feel envious but not that much as we see what they endure.

As I was reading this, I kept thinking about all the people who I’m going to recommend this to at work. It had a lot of strong vocabulary building words. I know parents will love that not only are their kids reading but they are learning new words that they haven’t been introduced to yet.

Having an imagination kind of disappears as you grow older but this will bring it right back into your world. Just remember to Touch The Sky!!!

Play- Kylie Scott

“He was, without a doubt, the most beautiful man I’d ever seen. The elegant lines of his face made me want to write bad poetry. And the sound of his voice, his words, they were all so perfect and good. But then my insides tightened, and there was nothing there to hold on to. I was so horribly empty I ached.”

I’m completely addicted to this series. There’s a depth to these stories that hit every angle and it leaves you wanting more.

We have all been in Anne’s shoes. We love a band so much that we plaster their posters on our wall, dream of taking one of their last names, and living that fairy tale rock star life.

But Anne’s dreams become reality when the drummer for Stage Dive makes her an offer that sweeps her off of her feet. Situations in books like these always come with deep emotional consequences. Can Anne survive the storm?

Sometimes Mal’s sense of humor was over the top and eye roll worthy. (I should know since I’m a pro) (Ask my husband) It was like he tried too hard to prove something but I wasn’t ever sure what. Anne even annoyed me a bit too. I’m not sure anyone would be okay with a strange man lying to get into your apartment. But those are such minor flaws.

Play is a story that you can lose yourself in. The characters interact well with one another and the sass that radiates off of them brings the story to life. This was a deeply naughty, emotional romp and you know that these stories are only going to get better.

My suggestion is that you buckle up because you’re in for a hell of a ride.
