Book Review: Fate’s Past by Jason Huebinger

Fate's PastFate’s Past by Jason Huebinger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fate’s Past is a suspenseful, heart-pounding supernatural horror novel that kept me guessing until the end. Once I picked it up, I didn’t want to put it down!

The story was very well developed, and the characters were interesting and relatable. I honestly felt like I would react the exact same way as Carrie and Cameron if I were in their situation.

Huebinger’s descriptions were remarkable; I was able to get a clear picture in my mind’s eye of everything that was happening. Fate’s Past not only has amazing suspense, but the action scenes were well-paced, keeping my eyes glued to my screen. I genuinely couldn’t get enough!

The ending surprised me. It was absolutely fitting with the build-up, concluding in a spectacular way. I would definitely recommend this book! Well done, Jason Huebinger!

I was given an ARC for this book in exchange for an honest review, but I’ve already pre-ordered my own copy.

Book Review: 122 Rules by Deek Rhew

122 Rules (122 Series #1)122 Rules by Deek Rhew
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Deek Rhew is a master when it comes to humour. Not only is this a great mystery, thriller/suspense novel, but Rhew adds his own flavour of levity that had me laughing throughout.

This was an effortless read. The engrossing plot kept me eagerly reading until the end. Rhew created a cleverly-written and well-timed novel. I genuinely can’t wait until I get to read the next in the series!

Kudos, Deek Rhew, on a spectacular book!

I received an ARC from the publisher, but I’ve already pre-ordered my own finished copy.

Book Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl on the TrainThe Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After all the hype over this novel I honestly thought it would be an amazing read. I am rather disappointed. I saw the ending coming a mile away, but I’d held out the hope that I would be surprised by something different happening.

The characters were all unlikeable. I find it very difficult to become emotionally invested in a book when I can’t relate to–or at least root for–the protagonist.

I’m giving this three stars because while I didn’t like the story or the characters, the writing was great. The language, the descriptions, scene-setting, and twisted inner thought processes of each character were very well executed.

Book Review – The Juliet by Laura Ellen Scott

The JulietThe Juliet by Laura Ellen Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! I’ve got to start off by saying that I truly admire Laura Ellen Scott’s ability to create such a detailed and inter-woven plot. I am in awe! Not only was the story told in such a remarkable way, but also, the flow of her sentences and fantastic imagery made this a smooth and enjoyable read.

Laura Ellen Scott’s characters are spectacular. They popped from the pages and came to life; I could swear that even the narrative voice in my mind changed with each character.

I absolutely loved this book! Kudos to Laura!

Love's Misadventure Final Front Cover 300 dpi front cover only

A blurb about Love’s Misadventure:

Miss Annabel Bradley refuses to accept life as a spinster. Her many years of pouring greedily over gothic novels has put her head in the clouds; dreaming and hoping for the love she reads about. She has always held a tendre for her best friend, Lane Mason, seventh Earl of Devon, but she does not want to jeopardize their friendship by telling him about those indecent dreams of hers. Anna, therefore, makes a life-changing decision; she is going to accept the proposal of the next suitor to ask!

Lane Mason is an average aristocrat; absorbed in life in general, and content with his status in society. Amid a frequently occurring moment of self-loathing, Lane shockingly discovers his feelings for Anna. Now armed with the awareness of his love for Anna, Lane decides to perpetrate a devilishly clever scheme. He will pay actors to abduct the two of them in order to give Anna an adventure like the ones she reads in her treasured books.

Lane’s plans go awry, however, when they are kidnapped in truth.

 

Thank you all so much for reading! I’m so excited that I get to share this with you! Happy Thursday!

Book Review – Looking Into The Sun by Todd Tavolazzi

Looking into the Sun: A Novel of the Syrian ConflictLooking into the Sun: A Novel of the Syrian Conflict by Todd Tavolazzi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once I picked up LOOKING INTO THE SUN, I didn’t want to put it down. The story is both engaging and frightening, highlighting the atrocities of war in Syria, how it effects those living there, and those that report on it.

As a mom to young children, some parts were difficult to read, and others made me cry, but hard or not, they were essential to the story Todd Tavolazzi tells.

This is most definitely a book that will stick with you long after you’ve put it down. Well done, Todd Tavolazzi, on a truly amazing book!

I received an ARC from the publisher to give a review, but before I’d even finished reading it, I’d already pre-ordered my paperback copy. I’ll be proud to display this on my bookshelf!
