Hey there, avid readers! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful day today! There is really nothing new to report in my day-to-day, I’m working really hard on catching up with my reviews. The problem is I read faster than I write, and I always like to handwrite everything first before I type it all out. Helps with some of the fine-tuning, I think.
Anywho, check out my latest reading list, a list of reviews to come. And, as always, happy reading!
When Marcus Kyle found an old book, C.A.T. Tricks, and Tricks, in his employer’s archive, he thought it would be good for a laugh and maybe help teach his cat something. But the type of tricks this book includes are more alchemical than entertaining. After an explosion, he and his fiancée, Alana Kym, and their cat, Purloin, have their lives altered forever as a new world of magic and mysteries unveils itself before them. With every discovery, more questions arise, and
hints at a darker destiny unfurl.
What changes did the accident force upon them?
How does their employer, Wonderland Pharmaceuticals, tie into this?
And most important of all, did that cat just talk?
Catatonic is a tale that is a must-read for cat lovers and fantasy lovers alike. Full of humor, groan-inducing puns, and feline hijinks.
By the end of this fast-paced story, you’ll never look at your cat the same way ever again.
A missing girl on a journey of revenge. A Serial-like podcast following the clues she’s left behind. And an ending you won’t be able to stop talking about.
Sadie hasn’t had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she’s been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.
But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie’s entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister’s killer to justice and hits the road following a few meager clues to find him.
When West McCray―a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America―overhears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.
Courtney Summers has written the breakout book of her career. Sadie is propulsive and harrowing and will keep you riveted until the last page.
