Nightmare Waiting & Other Stories by Glenn McGoldrick
Not reviewed on my blog.
I gave this book 2/5. Not my cup of the tea. The stories, although original, lacked conclusion.
After Dark by Mikey Campling
Full Review: After Dark.
I gave this book 3/5. This book had an interesting concept. I enjoyed the various POVs and how they linked up at the end of the narrative. It’s not often that you get the POV of an animal. I can’t say I found the story particularly scary.
Three Men and a Maybe by Katie Lovell
Full Review: Three Men and a Maybe.
I gave this book 4/5. An enjoyable, sweet read. Three proposals, three backstories, and one decision. The narrative had a satisfying, believable ending.
The Apple Orchard by Veronica Henry
Full Review: Apple Orchard.
I gave this book 3.5/5. A bittersweet story that makes you think about the value of life and who is really rich in this world. The ending felt a little abrupt, but the story is thought provoking.
Out of the Shadows by Dana Fraedrich
Full Review: Out of the Shadows.
I gave this book 4.5/5. The worldbuilding in this steampunk dystopia is extensive and thorough. The characters are well developed, and the sub plots run smoothly alongside Lenore’s story. I enjoyed the way the line between right and wrong is blurred in regards to fighting the ‘good fight’. Rook was a favourite of mine.
Wardens of Archos by Sarina Langer
Full Review: Wardens of Archos.
I gave this book 4.5/5. This book carries on effortlessly from book one. The relationship dynamics are fresh and raw, and new characters have me intrigued. That plot twist was a ‘why didn’t I see that coming?’ moment, and has left me desperate for book three.
Hawaiian Heartbreak by Libby Cole
Full Review: Hawaiian Heartbreak.
I gave this book 3.5/5. A blossoming romance, steamy scenes, and relatable characters. The ending was a little abrupt and had no conclusion for my taste. However, I enjoyed this short read, and look forward to reading the rest in the series.
The Manningtree Account by Becky Wright
Full Review: The Manningtree Account.
I gave this book 4.5/5. A well written blend of past and present. The creepy supernatural element of this book draws on the historical facts of the witch burnings. A quick, halloween read that certainly throws a curve ball ending.
Rising by Brian Rella
Full Review: Rising.
I gave this book 3/5. Perfect for Halloween with lots of gore and violence. Some unbelievable character choices, but this may have been to progress the narrative in a short period of time. More explanation and slower pacing would have helped the believability.
