The Shining by Stephen King, Campbell Scott (Narrator)

The Shining (The Shining #1)The Shining by Stephen King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think the book was awesome. I will still love the movie, even though it’s very different. Different because the characters of the movie can’t compare to the books characters. The scare in the movie was more scary than the book. I can see why King doesn’t like the movie.

Narration was ok. The gentleman’s voice was a bit monotone, and made it difficult to listen to when I was tired.

Review: Remembrance: (New Adult Paranormal Romance)

Remembrance: (New Adult Paranormal Romance)
Remembrance: (New Adult Paranormal Romance) by Heather Hildenbrand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Easy to read, suspenseful, and very sexy. This is the first book by Heather Hildenbrand that I’ve read, and I am buying the next book after I finish this review. I have it free through kindle unlimited, but when I love a story this much, I happily support the author! If you are a fan of PNR, this is a fantastic read!

Review: Behind Her Eyes

Behind Her Eyes
Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s easy to see why there is a comparison to Girl on the Train and Gone Girl. Behind Her Eyes is told in the same manner. Chapters come from different people, and from their point of view. What isn’t the same as either of those is the way it ends. Not the way it twists at the end, but the EXTRA twist at the VERY end. I’d figured it out just over halfway through, but I didn’t take it far enough. I absolutely love that this had me fooled. It’s hard to do when I read as much as I do, and Sara Pinborough got me good! Great story, deep characters, and excellent narration by Anna Bentinck, Josie Dunn, Bea Holland, and Huw Parmenter.

Review: Red Spring

Red Spring
Red Spring by D.J. Bodden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was not expecting that!

This latest in the Black Year Series does not disappoint. I spent much of this book audibly gasping in surprise and saying, “Whaaaaa…?”. So GOOD!! My emotions went from low to high over and over, and left my jaw on the floor at the end. I was way off about how I thought this third book would go, and have no clue as to what could follow in the final season of the Black Year. I can’t wait to find out! This is still one of my favorite urban fantasy series that I’ve read.

Even though I’ve pre-ordered the book, this review is based on the ARC copy of Red Spring that I received for my honest review.

Review: The Bone Witch

The Bone Witch
The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story is told in the way that Interview with the Vampire is told, through a main character telling someone else. In that sense, nothing actually happens in this book. What we do get is the whole story that has brought us to where the book starts, and hopefully into what the next book will be.

The story, or backstory, is interesting and exciting. I had a difficult time pushing through the second half of the book until the final few chapters. I am unsure what changed there, but I think I was finally getting anxious to know what happened to get us to the main characters current state. I pushed on, and was not disappointed.

If you like books like Red Queen, Throne of Glass, and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, you will most likely enjoy this book very much.

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in return for my honest review.
