Video of the Day — The Waiting Game

If you read my review of Breath of Malice, then you probably understand why this is the Video of the Day today.  This song kept running through my head as I wrote the review and it made me remember those old Heinz Ketchup commercials that used this song to describe the feeling of waiting for …

Review of “Breath of Malice” by Karen Fenech

This was one of those books that I was really looking forward to reading from the moment I requested it on Netgalley and was super bummed that I had to wait because I received it more than a month before its publication date (June 14th).  Finally, I felt comfortable reading and preparing to review it …

Review of “Deep Dark” by Laura Griffin

Trigger Warning: BID had graphic depictions of rape/gang rape and this review will include an analysis of Rape Culture.  If this is one of your triggers, please click away now. I actually forgot this book was coming out this month, probably because I absolutely hated the last book and felt the need to completely erase anything that …

Review of “Alone in the Dark” by Karen Rose

Karen Rose novels should come with trigger warnings.  I don’t remember reading any of them that didn’t involve something that would cause a PTSD episode and Alone in the Dark is no different.  To start my review, I am going to offer my own warning, just in case someone stumbles upon this not expecting to encounter harmful …

Review of “The Chase” by Brenda Joyce

I first read The Chase in the summer of 2003.  My brother and I had flown out to California to spend our vacation with our dad.  I was only here a few weeks before I stumbled across this book in a Walgreens in San Jose.  It was one of three books I bought there that summer. …
