Review: Lock Every Door

Jan 17, 2020

Lock Every Door Lock Every Door by Riley Sager
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I highly enjoyed this book. This was my first Riley Sager book and I will be moving on to more. I have Final Girls on my TBR for this month. Looking forward to it!

“Every so often, life offers you a reset button. When it does, you need to press it as hard as you can.”

Jules has found her self crashing on her friends couch because of "the bad guy game" made by her boyfriend. After finding a life changing job in the classified sections - for an apartment live-in, Jules jumps as the opportunity.

The Bartholomew is a place for the rich and famous. A very discreet place full of beauty and lure. The gargoyles that stand on the outside of the building makes the apartment complex all the more stunning.

“Shouldn’t the wealthy, by virtue of their superior breeding, be less susceptible than people who have nothing, come from nothing, are nothing”

Once inside, Jules can not believe the opportunity that she has walked into. Such luxury and glamour. And to her surprise, her favorite author lives in the same building but after trying to speak with Greta, Greta was short and did not want to be bothered with a "live-in"

Jules was offered the amount of $12,000 for 3 months, paid out $1,000 a week just to live there. How could something so wonderful be so great?? Well sometimes things are not always what they appear.

She soon meets up with Dylan and Ingrid, and they all appear to think something is wrong this place and when someone finds something, They always leave in the middle of the night. The fastest way to leave is when no one is watching or are they??

When people go missing and Jules starts her search for them, the loss of her sister many years ago push her not to give up on anyone else that has gone missing. She wants to find the true story behind what is going on at The Bartholomew. Oh and she find out more than she wants to know!

“I take a deep breath, trying to collect my thoughts. But they’re an unruly, unreliable bunch. My skull feels like a snow globe recently shaken, swirling with important bits of information that have yet to land. And I can’t grasp”

Guys this book had all the feels I wanted. I loved this story so much. I am so happy I finally picked up this book. This book was dark and the story that unravels in this book is shocking. I did not see the last half of this book coming. That ending, was a big one.. I was holding my breath through most of the last half.

I highly recommend this book if you are looking for that feeling of creepy and dark vibes of the unknown and you just can not get enough of it. READ THIS BOOK!

Review: Skyward

Jan 15, 2020

Skyward Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was a solid 4 stars. This was my first Brandon Sanderson book and will not be my last. I will be picking up book 2 in the next couple of days when I finish the current book I am reading! I highly recommend this.

Trigger Warnings: Death of friends

“People need stories, child. They bring us hope, and that hope is real. If that's the case, what does it matter whether people in them actually lived?”

Spensa has wanted to follow in her dads footsteps since she was a child but soon she finds out everything she thought she knew about him may not be true.

“Sometimes, the answers we need don’t match the questions we’re asking.”

Spensa takes a test to attend a pilot academy in hopes of being everything her dad was. Only to find out that the she may not get to attend. But after some changing events she has made it and to only find out now that she can not stay the rooms with the others. She soon finds comfort in a cave she use to explore. She was not going to let anyone get the best of her and tell her she can not make it. She was going to be the best pilot out there.

While staying in the cave she comes across an old ship and with a help from a friend she begins to repair this ship. Only she didn't know that M-Bot could speak and tons of life in him. and he LOVES mushrooms. - I loved M-Bot! He was so fun to read about.

“Good night, sweet prince,” M-Bot whispered as the junk crashed to the ground. “Or princess. Or, most likely, genderless piece of inanimate space junk.”

This book had a wonderful cast of characters and the world building in this book was done very well. I never had a problem following the cast around and know exactly what was going on.

However, Chapter 19 in this book ripped my heart out. I was so sad to loose some of the amazing cast we were growing to love.

I really hope you guys give this book a try! It is a solid read!

The Lightning Thief The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

I have heard so many great things about this series but wasn't sure I wanted to pick up because this is a huge world but when it popped up as a recommendation on GR because I like "Hidden Wings" by Cameo Renae then call me intrigued because I love "THE Hidden Wings" series and it is the series that gave me my love for reading so here is to hoping!
