All Eyes on Us

by Kit Frick

Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books

Release Date: June 4th 2019

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Thriller

 

Synopsis:

 

PRIVATE NUMBER: Wouldn’t you look better without a cheater on your arm?

AMANDA: Who is this?

 

The daughter of small town social climbers, Amanda Kelly is deeply invested in her boyfriend, real estate heir Carter Shaw. He’s kind, ambitious, the town golden boy—but he’s far from perfect. Because behind Amanda’s back, Carter is also dating Rosalie.

 

PRIVATE NUMBER: I’m watching you, Sweetheart.

ROSALIE: Who IS this?

 

Rosalie Bell is fighting to remain true to herself and her girlfriend—while concealing her identity from her Christian fundamentalist parents. After years spent in and out of conversion “therapy,” her own safety is her top priority. But maintaining a fake, straight relationship is killing her from the inside.

 

When an anonymous texter ropes Amanda and Rosalie into a bid to take Carter down, the girls become collateral damage—and unlikely allies in a fight to unmask their stalker before Private uproots their lives.

PRIVATE NUMBER: You shouldn’t have ignored me. Now look what you made me do…

My Review

This was a thriller full of twists and plenty of secrets that will keep you reading until the very last page! This is written in a dual point of view. I didn’t mind this. The pacing was fast which I like in a thriller. There was definitely plenty of suspense and a creepy vibe with the text messages.  I do want to warn people that this book does talk about serious topics. I think the author handles it well but I still like to give warnings.

Favorite Quotes

And I’m not public Amanda, either: beautiful, sharp-tongued, admired feared. Queen of the senior class. For these seven minutes, I don’t have to be any of those girls. I can just be me.

You may be the prettiest girl in school but things are going to get real ugly if you don’t start listening to me.

I get under the covers without brushing my teeth, then stare up at the ceiling and follow the lines where the paint is cracked. Just one of the many home repairs we never got around to making. If I look at it one way, it’s a network, a road map. Endless paths. But when I look again, it’s just a broken web. My life on display, all the threads torn apart.

This Cruel Design

by Emily Suvada

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Release Date: October 30, 2018

Genre: Young Adult — Science Fiction

Synopsis:

Cat thought the Hydra epidemic was over, but when new cases pop up, Cat must team up with an enemy to fix the vaccine before the virus spirals out of control in this thrilling sequel to This Mortal Coil, which New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman says “redefines ‘unputdownable.’”

The nightmare of the outbreak is finally over, but Cat’s fight has only just begun.

Exhausted, wounded, and reeling from revelations that have shaken her to her core, Cat is at a breaking point. Camped in the woods with Cole and Leoben, she’s working day and night, desperate to find a way to stop Lachlan’s plan to reprogram humanity. But she’s failing—Cat can’t even control her newly regrown panel, and try as she might to ignore them, she keeps seeing glitching visions from her past everywhere she turns.

When news arrives that the Hydra virus might not be as dead as they’d thought, the group is pushed into an uneasy alliance with Cartaxus to hunt down Lachlan and fix the vaccine. Their search takes them to Entropia, a city of genehackers hidden deep in the desert that could also hold the answers about Cat’s past that she’s been searching for.

But when confronted with lies and betrayals, Cat is forced to question everything she knows and everyone she trusts. And while Lachlan is always two steps ahead, the biggest threat to Cat may be the secrets buried in her own mind.

My Review

I was so excited to read the sequel to This Mortal Coil! I loved the first one and I had high hopes for the sequel. I was not disappointed! I did not want to put this book down! This was just as action packed and fast paced as This Mortal Coil. There are plenty of twists and turns that you don’t see coming! This was an amazing read! You need to add this to your tbr!

The Good Demon by Jimmy Cajoleas Book Review

The Good Demon

Goodreads

Amazon

I’ve read a few books about possessions but I have never read one about someone wanting their demon back. I thought this was an interesting and original take on a horror classic. There are some twists and turns. I do wish that some of them weren’t so predictable. This wasn’t a spooky read, it was more suspenseful than spooky. I liked this read but I do wish it was a little more spooky.
