The Forbidden Door by Dean Koontz

forbiddendoor

When this relentless rogue FBI agent comes knocking, her adversaries will have to answer—with their lives—in the latest thrilling Jane Hawk novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Corner.

“We’re rewriting the play, and the play is this country, the world, the future. We break Jane’s heart, we’ll also break her will.”

She was one of the FBI’s top agents until she became the nation’s most-wanted fugitive. Now Jane Hawk may be all that stands between a free nation and its enslavement by a powerful secret society’s terrifying mind-control technology. She couldn’t save her husband, or the others whose lives have been destroyed, but equipped with superior tactical and survival skills—and the fury born of a broken heart and a hunger for justice—Jane has struck major blows against the insidious cabal.

But Jane’s enemies are about to hit back hard. If their best operatives can’t outrun her, they mean to bring her running to them, using her five-year-old son as bait. Jane knows there’s no underestimating their capabilities, but she must battle her way back across the country to the remote shelter where her boy is safely hidden . . . for now.

As she moves resolutely forward, new threats begin to emerge: a growing number of brain-altered victims driven hopelessly, violently insane. With the madness spreading like a virus, the war between Jane and her enemies will become a fight for all their lives—against the lethal terror unleashed from behind the forbidden door.

The Last Straw by Ed Duncan

41u6mvrgvfl-_sx331_bo1204203200_

When a teenage girl witnesses a carjacking gone bad, she is marked for death by a crime boss with no apparent motive. A black lawyer and a white enforcer with an unlikely history forge an uneasy alliance to protect the girl from a hit man with an agenda of his own.

After they find out that the crime boss is the father of the black teenage carjacker, Paul Elliott – lawyer and close friend of the witness’s family – begins counseling them.

As the long-simmering feud between Rico and John D’Angelo reaches boiling point, bodies start to pile up in rapid succession… and old scores will be settled.

Guess Who by Chris McGeorge

914dhmyjwkl

A debut thriller that offers a fresh, modern twist on the classic “locked room” mystery novel, for readers of Noah Hawley and Jeffery Deaver

The rules are simple.

But the game is not.

At eleven years old, Morgan Sheppard solved the murder of a teacher when everyone else believed it to be a suicide. The publicity surrounding the case laid the foundation for his reputation as a modern-day Sherlock Holmes. He parlayed that fame into a gig as TV’s “resident detective,” solving the more typical tawdry daytime talk show mysteries like “Who is the father?” and “Is he cheating?”

Until, that is, Sheppard wakes up handcuffed to a bed in an unfamiliar hotel room. Around him, five strangers are slowly waking up, as well. Soon they discover a corpse in the bathtub and Sheppard is challenged to put his deductive skills to the test. One of the people in the room is the killer. He has three hours to solve the murder. If he doesn’t find the killer, they all will die.

An ingenious, page-turning debut, Chris McGeorge’s Guess Who matches the high-wire plotting of classic “locked room” mysteries into the unstoppable pacing of the modern-day thriller.

For some reason, I just couldn’t seem to get into Kristin Hannah’s The Nightingale this week. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve liked what I’ve read of it so far and I definitely intend to pick it back up later, but the truth is, I’m really in the mood for mystery and thrillers right now (probably because of the season). Rather than forcing myself to read it now, I figured I would set it aside for later when I can really enjoy it. After finishing up the books listed below, I just picked up Guess Who by Chris McGeorge.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

51bqkv6tlpl-_sx331_bo1204203200_

In love we find out who we want to be. In war we find out who we are.

FRANCE, 1939

In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France…but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When France is overrun, Vianne is forced to take an enemy into her house, and suddenly her every move is watched; her life and her child’s life is at constant risk. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates around her, she must make one terrible choice after another.

Vianne’s sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets the compelling and mysterious Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can…completely. When he betrays her, Isabelle races headlong into danger and joins the Resistance, never looking back or giving a thought to the real–and deadly–consequences.


I finished reading:

The Other Woman by Sandie Jones

81soqtlf7gl

A deliciously disturbing, compulsively readable debut domestic suspense–prepare to meet The Other Woman: there’s nothing she won’t do to keep you away from her son …

Emily thinks Adam’s perfect; the man she thought she’d never meet. But lurking in the shadows is a rival; a woman who shares a deep bond with the man she loves.

Emily chose Adam, but she didn’t choose his mother Pammie. There’s nothing a mother wouldn’t do for her son, and now Emily is about to find out just how far Pammie will go to get what she wants: Emily gone forever.

The Other Woman is an addictive, fast-paced psychological thriller about the destructive relationship between Emily, her boyfriend Adam, and his manipulative mother Pammie.

For the second week in a row, I only had enough time to read one book and I haven’t posted any reviews. I’m not going to give any more excuses, but hopefully I’ll get back on track soon.

I can’t believe another week has passed so quickly and it’s already time for WWW Wednesday again!

A quick heads up, I’m a little behind with responding to emails and comments this week. I’ve had some personal issues to deal with, which have been monopolizing a lot of my time. But I will try to respond to everyone in the next couple days and I’m really sorry if you’ve been waiting on a reply from me.

Bon Bons to Yoga Pants by Katie Cross

51po-jkzvgl

Lexie Greene has always had such a pretty face.

Unfortunately, that’s where it seemed to stop. She’s grown up hearing her Mother constantly remind her that she needs to lose weight. And twenty-three-year-old Lexie knows she’s overweight.

With her younger sister’s wedding on the horizon and a crush to stalk on Facebook, Lexie’s had enough. She gives up her constant daydreams about food and joins a dieting group. As the pounds melt away at the gym, she finds that life on the other side of junk food isn’t what she thought.

Bon Bons to Yoga Pants is an inspirational hit about a girl coming to terms with herself, and her past, all while navigating a world of food and fitness.

I only had enough time to read one book this week, but it was a good one! I really enjoyed this fun and relatable story.

WWW Wednesday: August 15th, 2018

Good evening, readers!

And the countdown is ON! In exactly one week (August 22nd) my kids are going back to school! In the meantime, we have a bunch of doctor appointments, school open house, teacher meet & greets, IEP reviews, last minute school shopping, and tons of other stuff to get done over the next week, so it will probably be another slow week on the blog front. But I will try to get a review or two posted this week if I get the chance.

For now, it’s time for WWW Wednesday!

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

51mlxngcsyl-_sx308_bo1204203200_

The World’s Bestselling Mystery

“Ten . . .”
Ten strangers are lured to an isolated island mansion off the Devon coast by a mysterious “U.N. Owen.”

“Nine . . .”
At dinner a recorded message accuses each of them in turn of having a guilty secret, and by the end of the night one of the guests is dead.

“Eight . . .”
Stranded by a violent storm, and haunted by a nursery rhyme counting down one by one . . . one by one they begin to die.

“Seven . . .”
Who among them is the killer and will any of them survive?

I’ve really enjoyed all of the Agatha Christie books that I’ve read so far, but everyone I talk to says that this is THE Agatha Christie book to read. It’s supposed to be her absolute best work. I haven’t actually started reading it yet (I just finished reading When Elephants Fly this morning), but I’m really excited about it. I hope it lives up to my expectations!

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen

51dbmn-p1pl-_sx327_bo1204203200_

A novel of suspense that explores the complexities of marriage and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement.
You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves.
You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
Assume nothing.

Discover the next blockbuster novel of suspense, and get ready for the read of your life.

Good evening, readers!

It’s been yet another CRAZY hectic week here and yet again, I haven’t posted all week. I had planned to finish editing and post a couple reviews from my backlog, but I never got around to them. Just two more weeks until the kids start school again, and then things will calm down a LOT so I’ll have more time to dedicate to my blog.

But for now, it’s time for WWW Wednesday!

Vox by Christina Dalcher

37796866

Set in an America where half the population has been silenced, VOX is the harrowing, unforgettable story of what one woman will do to protect herself and her daughter.

On the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed more than 100 words daily, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial–this can’t happen here. Not in America. Not to her.

This is just the beginning.

Soon women can no longer hold jobs. Girls are no longer taught to read or write. Females no longer have a voice. Before, the average person spoke sixteen thousand words a day, but now women only have one hundred to make themselves heard.

But this is not the end.

For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice.

When Elephants Fly by Nancy Richardson Fischer

a1pd1n-e1ql

There are some battles worth fighting even if it means losing yourself.

T. Lily Decker is a high school senior with a twelve-year plan: avoid stress, drugs, alcohol and boyfriends, and take regular psych quizzes administered by her best friend, Sawyer, to make sure she’s not developing schizophrenia.Genetics are not on Lily’s side.

When she was seven, her mother, who had paranoid schizophrenia, tried to kill her. And a secret has revealed that Lily’s odds are even worse than she thought. Still, there’s a chance to avoid triggering the mental health condition, if Lily can live a careful life from ages eighteen to thirty, when schizophrenia most commonly manifests.

But when a newspaper internship results in Lily witnessing a mother elephant try to kill her three-week-old calf, Swifty, Lily can’t abandon the story or the calf. With Swifty in danger of dying from grief, Lily must choose whether to risk everything, including her sanity and a first love, on a desperate road trip to save the calf’s life, perhaps finding her own version of freedom along the way.

WWW Wednesday: August 1st, 2018

Good evening, readers!

I know it’s after midnight AGAIN… And there’s been radio silence on this blog all week. So to start with, I’m still here! And I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you all! We paid a visit to my sister and her family this week. She lives in the middle of nowhere, in a complete dead spot (no cell signal whatsoever with any carriers), and she doesn’t have internet at her house right now. It was actually pretty nice unplugging for a few days and spending much-needed quality time together without screens. But since I wasn’t expecting it (she thought she would have her internet up and running before our trip), I of course didn’t get a chance to post a blog entry explaining my absence. So I’m sorry for just kind of disappearing, but I’m back now and I’ll try to make sure that doesn’t happen again.

Quick side note: I’m going to be making some changes to my blog over the next couple weeks and there are some exciting things coming, so make sure to stay tuned!

But for now, it’s time for this week’s WWW Wednesday.

Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book by Jennifer Donnelly

61wttiagthl-_sx345_bo1204203200_

Smart, bookish Belle, a captive in the Beast’s castle, has become accustomed to her new home and has befriended its inhabitants. When she comes upon Nevermore, an enchanted book unlike anything else she has seen in the castle, Belle finds herself pulled into its pages and transported to a world of glamour and intrigue. The adventures Belle has always imagined, the dreams she was forced to give up when she became a prisoner, seem within reach again.

The charming and mysterious characters Belle meets within the pages of Nevermore offer her glamorous conversation, a life of dazzling Parisian luxury, and even a reunion she never thought possible. Here Belle can have everything she has ever wished for. But what about her friends in the Beast’s castle? Can Belle trust her new companions inside the pages of Nevermore? Is Nevermore’s world even real? Belle must uncover the truth about the book, before she loses herself in it forever.

Beauty and the Beast was my top favorite Disney animated movie growing up and the 2017 live-action retelling with Emma Watson is one of my absolute favorite movies ever, so it’s no surprise I am loving this spinoff book by Jennifer Donnelly. From what I’ve read so far, I can already tell it is going to be a very enjoyable, enchanting read.


I finished reading:

Despite having plenty of family activities planned, I still managed to finish both of the books that I brought with me to my sister’s house (like usual, most of my reading was done at night after everyone else was asleep anyways). It might not be as much reading as I normally do, but considering the circumstances, I’m okay with it.


What I’m reading next:

The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

34043643

Amber Patterson is fed up. She’s tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who blends into the background. She deserves more—a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted.

To everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne—a socialite and philanthropist—and her real-estate mogul husband, Jackson, are a couple straight out of a fairy tale.

Amber’s envy could eat her alive . . . if she didn’t have a plan. Amber uses Daphne’s compassion and caring to insinuate herself into the family’s life—the first step in a meticulous scheme to undermine her. Before long, Amber is Daphne’s closest confidante, traveling to Europe with the Parrishes and their lovely young daughters, and growing closer to Jackson. But a skeleton from her past may undermine everything that Amber has worked towards, and if it is discovered, her well-laid plan may fall to pieces.

With shocking turns and dark secrets that will keep you guessing until the very end, The Last Mrs. Parrish is a fresh, juicy, and utterly addictive thriller from a diabolically imaginative talent.

I think I’m going to read this book next. I picked up my copy on a recent trip to a thrift store—a beautiful hardcover edition in like-new condition for just $1! Since it’s a book I’ve been interested in for awhile, you better believe I was on that deal like white on rice! Now I’m excited to get started and find out whether it’s as good as everyone says it is.

Soooo… it’s a little past midnight again. But I think I can still count it as Wednesday, since I haven’t gone to bed yet. Right? 😉

What can I say? It’s been another busy week. Just one more month of summer vacation…


I am currently reading:

I started reading Sadie (and admittedly, didn’t get very far into it) when I got a notification that my copy of Murder on the Orient Express was available from my library. I’ve been waiting for so long to read it—I couldn’t wait any longer and immediately downloaded it to my Kindle app. So now I’m going back and forth, reading Sadie whenever I get a chance to sit down and read a physical book, and otherwise making my way through Murder on the Orient Express on my Kindle app while I’m out and about. I really don’t like reading multiple books at once, though, (I feel like I’m not giving each book my undivided attention) so I’m trying not to make this a habit.


I finished reading:

I finally finished Anne of Green Gables! Now I just have to decide if I want to re-read the rest of the books in the series or if I’m going to wait for another time…

I also got side-tracked by two awesome thriller novels: Lies by T.M. Logan and The Fourth Monkey by J.D. Barker. Let me just say, The Fourth Monkey was an excellent, excellent read and I wish I had picked it up earlier! I am already planning on buying book #2 (The Fifth to Die) on my next payday. Lies was also a great read, but you’ll be seeing a full review for that… sometime… hopefully soonish… 🙈 I really need to finish my backlog of reviews!


What I’m reading next:

I actually have no clue what I’m going to be reading next, and I’m too tired tonight to try to decide. But whatever it is, I’m sure it’s going to be great!

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery

annegreengables13

Everyone’s favorite redhead, the spunky Anne Shirley, begins her adventures at Green Gables, a farm outside Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When the freckled girl realizes that the elderly Cuthberts wanted to adopt a boy instead, she begins to try to win them and, consequently, the reader, over.

Since I finished reading The Future Will Be BS Free early this morning, I haven’t started anything else yet, other than continuing on my re-read of Anne of Green Gables. But since I keep getting distracted by really intense storylines in my other reads, I haven’t made much progress this week.


I finished reading:

 

I did not get around to reading I’ll Be Gone In The Dark by Michelle McNamara before my library loan ended. 😞 So I’m stuck back at the bottom of the wait list on OverDrive, unless I give in and just buy myself a copy. But I still read an interesting mix of good books this week! I think the one that surprised me the most was Believe Me by JP Delaney. You can read my review of it here.


What I’m reading next:

Sadie by Courtney Summers

34810320

A gripping novel about the depth of a sister’s love; poised to be the next book you won’t be able to stop talking about.

A missing girl on a journey of revenge and a Serial-like podcast following the clues she’s left behind.

Sadie hasn’t had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she’s been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.

But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie’s entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister’s killer to justice and hits the road following a few meager clues to find him.

When West McCray—a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America—overhears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.

Courtney Summers has written the breakout book of her career. Sadie is propulsive and harrowing and will keep you riveted until the last page.

This may change, but right now I’m thinking I’ll pick this one up next. It’s an ARC that I received in the mail and it looks really good!
