Nine – Review

**This review was originally published at teenreads.com ** "This is what life should be like, he thought. Your heart beating, your skin tingling, your mind bright and alive as you run headlong toward a future. Towards answers. Not death, after death, after death..." In a clever twist on dystopian story telling, Zach Hines shows us [...]

#makeoutmarrymurdermonday

It's the last Monday in July and I honestly don't know how I feel about that 🤔 On the one hand, we're that much closer to cooler weather and my favorite month of the year. On the other, I had a rough month and did not accomplish what I wanted. I guess I'll have to stab [...]

One day, one by one, men went into the homes of every American, and silenced women. A simple device, [...]

It Takes Death To Reach A Star – Review

Thank you to TLC Book Tours for including me on this blog tour! "The streets are dark and cold, shadows upon shadows concealing the horrors of Etyom. It's hard to believe this place was once considered a haven." We find ourselves in a distant but believable future. One where a plague, powerful, resistant, crept over [...]
