Hoarders, Book Edition: Episode 209


Free Space by Sean Danker | Firebug by Lish McBride | God-Shaped Hole by Tiffany DiBartolo | Devil’s Cut by JR Ward | Seeing Red by Sandra Brown | Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff | Origin by Dan Brown

Hello.

I can’t even remember the last time I did a Hoarders post! I haven’t been buying too many books, to be honest. It’s so bad that a few of these were from our summer trip in Toronto! The horror. I’ve only read a couple of these books – that’s how bad I’ve been at reading as well. Incidentally, both books were quintessential of the authors’ work. Seeing Red by Sandra Brown and Origin by Dan Brown (no relation. Ha). I did, however, request some books from Net Galley.

I reviewed The Trouble with Twelfth Grave on the blog already. Hard Cover will be up sometime this week (loveeee this book, btw). I read Wish You Were Mine but it’s so unremarkable that I probably would have to re-read it just so I can write a review.

Pucked Over was good. As well, both Vi Keeland’s books. Sorely disappointed with Penelope Ward’s Gemini. I think it might have been an early work, as I can tell it’s not in the same calibre as her newer novels. Needless to say, I’m not continuing with that series. Basic writing, flat characters, and often times, cheesy dialogues.

Missing
by Kelley Armstrong

I have about a quarter left to this book. I’ve managed to read a good chunk of it this weekend with a few starts and stops. It’s suspenseful af, to be honest. It’s very good, though. I think it’s the fact that I have no idea who the killer was makes it more sinister. As well, the setting adds to the scare factor. I can’t wait to finish it. Hopefully, tonight after I hit “publish”. 🙂

 

 

The Break
by Katherena Vermette

So I’ve been struggling with this one. I borrowed this copy from a friend of mine at the gym because she swore by it, and it’s a prized-winning literature. It’s set in our city but the story is tough to read at times. It’s so interesting to read about a place in which you have a familiarity. It’s easy enough to follow but the stories of the characters are hard to get through.

 

Well, I think I’ll bid farewell for now. I have a full schedule on the blog. (Trust. I can’t believe it either.) I wish you all a lovely week!
