From Goodreads:

“Coraline discovered the door a little while after they moved into the house. . . .”

When Coraline steps through a door to find another house strangely similar to her own (only better), things seem marvelous.

But there’s another mother there, and another father, and they want her to stay and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Coraline will have to fight with all her wit and courage if she is to save herself and return to her ordinary life. Continue reading “Book Review: Coraline by Neil Gaiman #BookReview #Coraline”

Unhinged by Logan Keys – UPDATED & Free Through 6/27!

35487925.jpg

 

After discovering Logan Keys on Goodreads a while back and reading Barkley Five-Oh, I couldn’t wait to read more of her books. I saw Unhinged and after viewing the blurb and cover, I had to read it. I noticed it wasn’t available on Amazon any longer and nowhere to be found. I began to beg the author for it and I’m so glad I did. Now it’s been updated with more stories and it’s free through 6/27! You can read my original review and some information about Logan Keys below…

 

 

My review

Unhinged by Logan Keys is a collection of four short horror stories. From the moment I read about this book and saw the cover, I had to read it! Now it’s updated with four more new stories and a 17 chapter peek into The Last City, Logan Key’s Zombie Dystopian Novel. I enjoyed them all.tumblr_inline_msu8f7HXuu1qz4rgp.png

My favorite remains the very first story titled “Snowed.” As I continued reading on and got to “The Last Rainbow” I felt like I was reading The Butterfly Garden all over again. It was weird! I was thoroughly captured with the writing style and nothing about these stories is predictable so you have no clue what’s around the corner.

I had a small issue with one of the stories, but hey, that’s what horror’s all about and exactly what I asked for when I basically begged the author for this book!

If you’re a horror fan, go grab this on Amazon now.

I’d like to thank the author for putting this back up for grabs. This is my second read by Logan Keys, and I’m thirsting for more…

4-stars

 

UPDATE: Unhinged has now been updated with NEW stories! I just finished reading the 4 extra stories that were added plus about 17 chapters of The Last City. Get your copy HERE FOR FREE.

Author Spotlight with Candace Robinson + Hearts Are Like Balloons & Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault Book Reviews

 

Not too long ago on Goodreads, I came across Candace Robinson’s new book Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault and I instantly fell in love with the cover. I moved on to reading the blurb and I knew it was something I had to read as I love fairy tale retellings and this sounded perfect. I headed to Amazon and purchased it that very day. You can see my review for it below as well as my review for Candace Robinson’s new book titled Hearts Are Like Balloons. 

I was able to speak with the author regarding some of the questions I had about her books and included a Q&A below for those interested.


Hearts Are Like Balloons

34807723

Hearts Are Like Balloons by Candace Robinson is a story about a teenage girl named May who has just lost her father to lung cancer and is trying to move on with life. Her dad was important to her and she has no choice but to let him go. The loss is difficult for her, but she must find a way to move on and to remain strong for her mother.

As May moves on to finding a job at a bookstore, she meets new people that help her along the way, including a hip new boss named Violet, and a new relationship with a boy she really likes named Nico. Violet hits it off with May right away as they have similar interests. Nico happens to be Violets sister and works there as well. May and Nico develop a great relationship as Nico is warm, understanding, and very much into her.  It’s just what May needs to help heal her from the loss of her father. An unexpected event will change everything with their relationship which brings more challenge and heartache for May to overcome.

I have to say that I loved this book. I loved the story as it felt real and was written well. It was emotional and I found myself crying a few times. I appreciated the relationships in the book and enjoyed all the characters. May has a really good support system in place and is loved by all that know her. I enjoyed Violet’s personality the most out of all the secondary characters. Despite the emotion in the book, it’s a feel good read and I was happy with the conclusion.

I think I just found myself a new favorite author!  Five *****

Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault ( Glass Vault #1)

34511974

I picked up Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault as soon as it was released after reading the blurb and viewing the cover. I love retellings and the idea of intermixed horror really pulled me in. I’m amazed at how perfectly matched this cover is after reading the story.

The story starts out with the main character Perrie and her cousin Maisie. They are really close and live next door to each other. Perrie is thinking about what she wants to do with her life while juggling the mystery that’s going on around town with people who are just disappearing without a trace. Everything is uncertain and one day while driving down Oak Street with Maisie and their friend August, something strange appears. A building they’ve never seen before. A building that is there one moment, and gone the next.

Nobody knows what’s going on with the mysterious building, but as more people start to disappear, Perrie and August begin to search for answers. As they enter the Vault world, they are unable to leave and have to discover a way out. This is where the story takes off and becomes an adventure like no other. A nightmare that you just want to get out of. There were some really grotesque parts in the story when the horror comes in. I liked the addition of the horror paired with the fairy tales and romance because it really makes the book unique.

I personally liked the story and there were some surprises that I totally unexpected, including an interesting twist at the end. I love the way this author writes and this was a fast paced read that kept me interested. I found only a few parts of the story a tad boring, but then it picks back up again and leaves you wanting answers. Anyone who enjoys retellings and horror will love this book.

I can’t wait for the second book! 4****
