Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a bookish meme/feature created by Breaking the Spine.

This week, I’m excited for a book that may shock you because I disliked the first two books in the series, but this third and final part to the trilogy sounds EXACTLY like the book I wanted from the start.

Publication:  July 11th 2017
Publisher:  Razorbill
Pages:  293 pages
Genre: Young Adult, Fiction, Paranormal, Horror, Prequel
Good reads synopsis:

Brooklyn knows that there’s no good without evil, no right without wrong. And when a helpless girl calls her teen helpline, whispering that someone is hurting her, Brooklyn knows that she needs to save her anonymous caller, even if it means doing something bad.

Her parents and friends assure her the call was probably a prank but Brooklyn has always had a tendency to take over, whether someone has asked for help or not.

She discovers the call came from Christ First Church and finds herself plunged into the cultish community of its youth group. She’s especially drawn to Gavin, the angelic yet tortured pastor’s son.

Torn between an unstoppable attraction to Gavin and her obsession with the truth, Brooklyn is forced to make a devastating choice to rid Christ Church of evil once and for all. . . . But the devil has plans for Brooklyn’s soul.

Why? In my reviews for the first two books in The Merciless trilogy, I mentioned that all I wanted to know about was how Brooklyn became a demon because it was never talked about, and now I’ve gotten my wish!

My hopes are very high for this one and I know they shouldn’t be. Most of the plot has probably already been spoiled for me from this synopsis alone, but I really want to know more about Brooklyn.

What are you book are you “waiting” to read?

Review: The Merciless II by Danielle Vega

Pages:  320 pages

Genre: Fiction, Horror, Paranormal, Thriller, Young Adult
My Rating: ⛤⛤⛤

Ultimately, this sequel is unnecessary, but it was better than the first book so I guess I can forgive it for existing.

I wasn’t interested in buying this sequel because at the time I hadn’t read The Merciless and didn’t understand why it needed a sequel. My sister adored The Merciless and bought it, and loved the second book even more. After disliking the first book, I decided to read the second book because I had it, and I was curious if it would be any better than the first. Continue reading

My Rating: ⛤⛤.5

I wanted to love this book so much. I was so excited to read it just from how the back of the book started alone:

“Brooklyn Stevens sits in a pool of her own blood, tied up and gagged. No one outside of these dank basement walls knows she’s here. No one can hear her scream.”

I mean, when a back of the book starts like that, how could you not want to read this book? I wanted messed up high school girls who thought were dark and twisted and just wanted to hurt one of their classmates, but instead I got literal demons. Continue reading

I remember hearing about this anthology back when it was a Kickstarter, when everyone was talking about it because “Margaret Atwood can draw comics?!”. It’s what peaked my interested (big Atwood fan over here, if it wasn’t already obvious), but then I looked at what the anthology was actually about, and I became interested. Unfortunately, I focused more on the words “Geek Girls” than romance, but even that didn’t stop my interest in the book. Continue reading

Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood Review

The Tempest is on the list of my favourite Shakespearean plays (Hamlet will always be first, no changing that no matter how much magic you try to use to against me Prospero). It’s strange play, not a tragedy but it is tragic, not a comedy but it is funny. The proper genre for this play is a Romance, and most of Shakespeare’s Romances are odd plays that no one seems to remember exist. Continue reading
