Review | In the Tall Grass by Stephen King and Joe Hill

Hello, fellow readers! I read my first novella of 2019 last week, and it was quite disappointing. I was watching a YouTube video about upcoming horror movies, and the video mentioned an upcoming movie based on Stephen King and Joe Hill’s novella, In the Tall Grass. I was intrigued because the video said it was such a shocking story and they didn’t know how a movie could be made from concept. And then they left things at that. So of course, I was curious and found the novella on Scribd.

Review | Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson

Hello, fellow readers! I have finished my first audiobook of 2019. I decided to try Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson when I found it on Scribd. I recently found out the book was part of a series, and the sequel releases this month.

You can try Scribd FREE for 60 days by signing up here. Scribd is a website with unlimited audiobooks and eBooks for only $8.99 a month. Supposedly, the service is not truly unlimited because if you are a high volume user, you will have trouble getting books. I know some people have had negative experiences with Scribd, but I have not had any issues during my first two months. I’ve listened to several audiobooks and read an eBook without issue. I did notice a few of my saved books are no longer available, but they were also Christmas books, so I am not reading those right now anyway.

Review | Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (illustrated ed.) by JK Rowling

Hello, fellow readers! My second book of the year is one of my favorites already! I have been a long time lover of Harry Potter. I have wanted the illustrated editions for awhile but could not justify the cost. But my husband surprised me for Christmas and had purchased the gift set of the first three illustrated books. I promise, the illustrated books will make the reading experience like (or better than!) the first time you read Harry Potter .

Review | Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Hello, fellow readers! The holidays are over, and it feels good to get back to regular content, which means book reviews! Scythe by Neal Shusterman was one of the last books I read in 2018 and I devoured it. I think I would have read it in two or three days if my schedule had allowed it!

Review | An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

Hello, fellow readers! It has been several hours since I finished An Anonymous Girl, and I finally feel like I am able to put my thoughts in to words. I am sad to say that I missed Hendricks and Pekkanen’s debut release, The Wife Between Us, but I will definitely be adding it to my TBR after finishing their second book.

I was provided an ARC of this title from St. Martin’s Press in exchange for my honest review.

Thriller Thursday | The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

I listened to the audiobook of this back in October and absolutely loved it! I have listened to both of Sager’s book on audiobook and thoroughly enjoyed both books. I can’t wait for his next book in 2019!

**Disclaimer: As with all of my reviews, I do post the entire plot synopsis before my review. However, I will always recommend for Thriller Thursday reviews that you skip the plot synopsis. Thrillers are better when you go in knowing little to nothing about the plot. Happy reading!

Thriller Thursday | The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay

October has been a better reading month for me. The second book I finished this month was one of my most anticipated books this year. The Cabin at the End of the World was my first Paul Tremblay book, and I had heard from several people how scary the book was. I did a book swap for it on Instagram.
