Three Things About Elsie

4/5 stars I picked this up because the bookstore recommended it after I read, Where’d You Go, Bernadette. I could definitely see the similarities.  This story follows two elderly friends living at the same assisted living home. The mystery begins immediately as they try and expose the identity of a fellow resident and dangerous person … More Three Things About Elsie

Lock Every Door

5/5 stars This is the first Riley Sager (pseudonym) book I’ve read before, and I’m so glad I did! I finished in about 5 hours and could not put it down. This had just the right amount of suspense and thrill. Add in the paranormal aspects and it’s the perfect psychological thriller for me.  Our … More Lock Every Door

The Cactus

****There will be spoilers in this review**** 2/5 stars I gave this book a try after hearing it was like Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine. I almost didn’t finish this book, even after the “plot twist” reveal. The only reason I continued is because I was already very close to the end.  It felt like … More The Cactus

The Turn of the Key

4.5/5 stars This was my August pick for the Book of the Month Club (my very first box!). Ruth Ware has done it again. While, this didn’t scare me as much as some of her previous works (The Lying Game was super creepy), it was still suspenseful and thrilling. I read it in one sitting … More The Turn of the Key

Just another week

I walked out this morning and instead of being hit with the normal wall of hot, humid air, I felt a temperate breeze. Hopeful, I pulled open my weather app to see what the high was for today. Don’t fret. I was immediately crushed. Today, the high is 103 Fahrenheit and it “feels like” 108. … More Just another week

Go With The Flow

Lately, I’ve been looking at my life and thinking, Can this really be happening? And no. Not in a good way. I look at my life and laugh because I had a whole plan. Everything was going according to plan. Until it wasn’t. Until everything started to go wrong, and I couldn’t seem to make … More Go With The Flow


I thought I was leaving the rut. I thought everything was going to be left behind. I was moving forward. Silly me. Official Note from XXX City. That’s what the envelope said. I was stupid enough to think it was a parking ticket I was unaware of. Of course it wasn’t. It was a reminder … More Backtracking.

Studying Saturday

Did I ever update that my book box came? I think I did. My days have been getting jumbled. It’s a lovely Saturday except for the fact that the high is 104 degrees Fahrenheit. I’m definitely staying inside. I am studying at one of my favorite cafes (the one with the delicious grilled cheese). I’m … More Studying Saturday
