Synopsis: 

Meet Bryce Davison, a gifted psychologist who can heal any troubled mind—except his own.

You see, Bryce’s life is falling apart. His marriage is crumbling. His insomnia brings only half-sleep and troubled dreams—visions of dark and buried memories he’d rather forget or ignore completely. And the new female patient in his psych ward just might be more trouble than he’s able to cope with.

…and now he has a stalker.

Somebody’s been watching Bryce for a long time. Somebody who knows his life inside and out—his fears, his regrets, his greatest longings and deepest despairs. Somebody with access to his most private places—his workplace, his home, his family…anywhere Bryce might have felt safe.

They do their dirty work in the shadows… and they want Bryce Davison dead.

So Bryce has got to get his life together. To save his patients. To save his family. To save his marriage…and his life.

Because no matter how close Bryce gets to the deadly truth, the enigmatic stalker is always closer than he thinks.

Synopsis: 

Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city, a grisly metropolis where the violence has begun to create real and deadly monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the inhabitants pay for his protection. August just wants to be human, as good-hearted as his own father–but his curse is to be what the humans fear. The thin truce that keeps the Harker and Flynn families at peace is crumbling, and an assassination attempt forces Kate and August into a tenuous alliance. But how long will they survive in a city where no one is safe and monsters are real…

August 2019 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my August TBR. Even though it’s only the 2nd, I’ve already finished one book this month. I read This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab so it won’t be included it in my list below and my thoughts will be in a review soon! Here’s the rest of the books I want to read in August:

Our Dark Duet by V.E. Schwab: Since this is the sequel I can’t really say much about it but I’m curious to see where the story goes next and what else happens with Kate and August. The first book was interesting and the ending left me wanting more so let hope this delivers.

July 2019 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! Who else thinks this month went by really fast?? I managed to read 10 books and I’m very happy with that! I loved the majority of them and I actually reread an entire series which was good! I don’t reread books that often so to reread an entire series was awesome. Here’s what I read in July:

The Spider Dance by Nick Setchfield: This is the sequel to The War in the Dark and one of my most highly anticipated sequels! It really didn’t disappoint and was totally worth the wait. The author perfectly brings together an incredible mix of genres to form this amazing story! It was a very fast paced plot and was action-packed from start to finish.

The Retreat by Sherri Smith: Another amazing book from Sherri Smith! It’s about a group of friends who go on a wellness retreat but… only one of them will leave alive. The twist at the end was perfect. Sherri did such an amazing job of keeping it all hush, hush until that jaw-dropping twist at the end. I don’t know how I didn’t see that coming! Such a great story with very complex characters. Definitely worth a read!

While attempting to prove the existence of telekinesis to a scientific society, an alleged psychic, Kellway, vanished before their eyes during the experiment. With a large reward at stake, Holmes is convinced Kellway is a charlatan – or he would be, if he had returned to claim his prize. As Holmes and Watson investigate, the case only grows stranger, and they must contend with an interfering “occult detective” and an increasingly deranged cult. But when one of the society members is found dead, events take a far more sinister turn…
