{Arc Review} Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

Book Summary:
No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.
As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly, disturbingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew is not what it seems and the dark history hidden beneath its gleaming facade is starting to frighten her, Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story . . . until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.
Searching for the truth about Ingrid’s disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew’s dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building’s hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.

My Review:

I really do enjoy reading Riley Sager books so much. He is known to have such amazing twists in his mystery/thrillers books. He is one of my favorite adult books reader.

This book start out at the fancy, hotel. Where the celebrities and the rich stay.

For Jules it was her big break to start over, she becomes an apartment sitter. Pretty simple enough, live in a very nice apartment and follow some strange rules for three months. Jules even try to make friend with a fellow apartment sitter. But her new friend disappear, then things don’t seem right at home. What dark secrets lurking behind the walls of Bartholomew?

This book is slow start, but picks up pretty good in the middle. I did have fun guessing throughout the book. The twist at the end, was shocking crazy. That you must read for yourself. If your in mood for an good mystery then check Lock Every Door on July 2.

Happy Reading!!!!

Here is Riley Sager. I met him at book expo.

Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

Book Summary:
Beware of the woods and the dark, dank deep.
He’ll follow you home, and he won’t let you sleep.
Who are the Sawkill Girls?
Marion: the new girl. Awkward and plain, steady and dependable. Weighed down by tragedy and hungry for love she’s sure she’ll never find.
Zoey: the pariah. Luckless and lonely, hurting but hiding it. Aching with grief and dreaming of vanished girls. Maybe she’s broken—or maybe everyone else is.
Val: the queen bee. Gorgeous and privileged, ruthless and regal. Words like silk and eyes like knives, a heart made of secrets and a mouth full of lies.
Their stories come together on the island of Sawkill Rock, where gleaming horses graze in rolling pastures and cold waves crash against black cliffs. Where kids whisper the legend of an insidious monster at parties and around campfires.
Where girls have been disappearing for decades, stolen away by a ravenous evil no one has dared to fight… until now.

My Review:

This book was so haunting and breathe taking. I loved the story idea and the characters development in the book.

Marion, I somewhat liked her in the book. She mostly closed off and keep to self after an accident first time entering Sawkill Island. She just want to find a place where she belongs. What deep dark secrets are on Sawkill island will she discover?

Zoey, she is my favorite in the book. The only in the book that is smart on what’s happening on Sawkill Island. When her best friend goes missing, she knew something big is going on. To many girls had disappear on the island. Will Zoey be able to find the answers before it’s to late?

Val, the queen bee on the island. At first she comes off way to charming. Behind her looks and the charms, she hides a dark secret. All the girls that become her friend disappears. What does she know about the missing girls? What secrets is she keeping from everyone?

This book is the prefect fall. I enjoy the point of views between all three girls. You get a sense on who they are. In the end the book is filled with lots of twists and turns. You will not regret picking this book up for the fall.

Are you ready to travel to Sawkill Island?

Happy Reading!!

{Arc Review}Give The Dark My Love by Beth Revis

Book Summary:
When seventeen-year-old Nedra Brysstain leaves her home in the rural, northern territories of Lunar Island to attend the prestigious Yugen Academy, she has only one goal in mind: learn the trade of medicinal alchemy. A scholarship student matriculating with the children of Lunar Island’s wealthiest and most powerful families, Nedra doesn’t quite fit in with the other kids at Yugen, who all look down on her.
All, except for Greggori “Grey” Astor. Grey is immediately taken by the brilliant and stubborn Nedra, who he notices is especially invested in her studies. And that’s for a good reason: a deadly plague has been sweeping through the North, and it’s making its way toward the cities. With her family’s life–and the lives of all of Lunar Island’s citizens–on the line, Nedra is determined to find a cure for the plague.
Grey and Nedra continue to grow closer, but as the sickness spreads and the body count rises, Nedra becomes desperate to find a cure. Soon, she finds herself diving into alchemy’s most dangerous corners–and when she turns to the most forbidden practice of all, necromancy, even Grey might not be able to pull her from the darkness.

My Review:

This book was so incredible. I enjoyed every minute of it. The story and world building was so unique. It’s perfect for the fall read. The characters I did enjoy, watching them grow.

Nedra, I did enjoy her. She was brave and only care to cure the sickness. She could less making friends at the new school. She only cared about helping the people out. She has such a kind caring heart in the book. Will she be able to find the cure and save everyone before it’s to late?

Grey, I liked him in the beginning. Always standing up to Nedra. He is such a soft hearted guy, follows the rules. Will he be able to stay with Nedra, when she does something unforgivable to cure the sick?

This book is breathe taking. Leaving you on the edge of your seat at times. So many body counts and death due to a sickness. You get to read both points of view to Grey and Nedra. Only you must read to find out what happens in the end. Be ready for some shocking twists and turns.

Happy Reading!

The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

Book Summary:
Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she–or anyone–saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.
Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings–massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends.
Yet it’s immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp’s twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present.
And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price.

My Review:

I know I’m reviewing an adult read. I did enjoyed Riley Sager other book, The Final Girls. So i was excited for his new book. He is gonna to be my go to guy for good adult thrillers. If you guys not into adult thrillers, then you can skip this review.

The detailed summary give most of the book away. It what written on back of book. Don’t forget it’s a thriller and there be some twists and turns.

I enjoyed the main character story, Emma. I liked how the story switches up between her time at camp in the past and now. There’s a lot of questions on what happen years ago and Emma the main suspect. How can three campers just disappears years ago? Emma faces her past when she goes back to camp. Will she be able to find answers to the past?

The book is a slow start like any mystery/thriller read. Once it picks up, you will keep guessing until the very end on what’s going on. Beware, Riley knows how to shock you in the end. In mood for good thriller, then this book be a right for for you.

Happy Reading!!
