Review: The Last Time I Saw Her by Amber Garza









Synopsis:

Two weeks ago, Dylan DiMarco and his sister Claire discovered Lauren Pascal’s body lying in a creek near his home.

Murdered.

Dead. Lifeless.

Today she is standing in the middle of the store where he works.

Alive. Breathing.

It’s not the first time he’s seen her lurking around. Following him. In life, Lauren had wanted nothing to do with him. In death, she won’t leave him alone.

He knows what she wants. What he has to do so he can finally be free.

With the help of the school’s bad girl loner Harley, Dylan sets out to solve Lauren’s murder. But when the lines begin to blur between finding justice and seeking vengeance, things take a dangerous turn.


My Review:

4 Stars:

I thought this was a really good whodoneit. You aren’t sure who to trust or who is telling the truth. Everyone is a suspect and everyone has a motive. It let me guessing until the end of the book! The characters were typical high school students and very believable, so this made the story much more real. A great read if you like mystery and being left guessing until the end!

Cover Reveal: Greed by Elizabeth Cash

   COVER REVEAL ✬ ✫ 

GREED by Elizabeth Cash
Cover Designer: Katrina Curry with Crimson Pheonix Creations
TBR: https://tinyurl.com/ya8f3kql

Remy:
He was my downfall six years ago.
His actions lead me to a life that tried to ruin me.
Even though I almost cracked under the weight of the world I was in, I managed to win a losing battle.
I fought for my second chance and I made my way back to him.
Because the end game for me wasn't death; it was him.
And as long as I had him, I was alive.


Rowan:
I made one wrong move in a world I thought I knew everything about and I lost her.
I was stupid and naive to think I was above him, but when he took her, I rose up and took the throne.
Now, the empire was mine. All I needed was her.
When she came back, I could finally breathe. There was no longer a void in my life. I was whole again.
Everything was complete and my empire was solid now that I had my backbone.
Until our world was flipped upside down and the world around us began to crumble from beneath our feet.

Review: The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor



In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code: little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same.
     In 2016, Eddie is fully grown, and thinks he's put his past behind him. But then he gets a letter in the mail, containing a single chalk stick figure. When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank . . . until one of them turns up dead.
     That's when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago.
Expertly alternating between flashbacks and the present day, The Chalk Man is the very best kind of suspense novel, one where every character is wonderfully fleshed out and compelling, where every mystery has a satisfying payoff, and where the twists will shock even the savviest reader.

My Review:

Great story that kept me guessing until almost the very end. A definite must read page turner. The group of friends, and the finding of a body reminded me of the kids from Stand By Me.

I thought the story was very well written. It left me on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t put it down! I actually read it in one setting. One of the best psychological thrillers I have read this year. 

I received this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review.

Cover Reveal: Collision By Tanya Ruby

Katlyn.
I was alone in the world.
Most of my life I've spent hungry, cold, and afraid, but I finally had enough.
I didn’t deserve to live this way, no one did.
Only one problem, finding a way out.

One minute I’m looking for a place to sleep and then the next I’m waking up in a hospital bed with a handsome stranger at my side.

He says he wants to help me. He wants to offer me a new lease of life.

Now I’m left asking myself?
Am I making the right decision accepting his help or is this a head-on collision waiting to happen?

I’m honestly not sure. All I know do know is… I can’t go back to the life I had before.

Review: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo



The highly anticipated, entirely new coming-of-age story for the world's greatest super hero: WONDER WOMAN by the # 1 New York Times bestselling author LEIGH BARDUGO.
AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

She will become one of the world's greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .

Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.

Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn't know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.

Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.

My Review:

Five stars!!! Phenomenal book. As a fan of the Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo, I was looking forward to reading this. I was not disappointed. Growing up, Wonder Woman was one of my favorite super heroes. Leigh Bardugo definitely did her justice. There is a lot of action, the plot just keeps moving! I love origin stories, and I loved this take on Diana. The action scenes were excellent, and the plot twists were amazing. If you are a Wonder Woman fan, I highly recommend this book. Even more so if you are a Leigh Bardugo fan!
