Don’t Say a Word (Hometown Antihero #2) by Amber Lynn Natusch

The sequel to Dare You to Lie delivers more of the same high-action tee investigator thrilling mysteries as its predecessor, with our resident badass Kylene Danners also embroiled in a fake dating trope while she works with rookie undercover FBI agent Dawson to bring down an underage sex ring involving students (and possibly teachers!) at […]

Dare You to Lie by Amber Lynn Natusch

This book was about 1 girl and about a hundred dudes. The male/female ratio of this book was way off. The main character was female, and she had literally 1 female friend. Everyone else in this novel, except for a victim of domestic abuse and a ‘cool aunt’ archetype, was male. Literally every single one. […]

People Like Us by Dana Mele

Going in to this book, I didn’t know is was sapphic, and to be honest, the blurb doesn’t hint at it very much. In fact, I put off borrowing this audiobook from my library for a few weeks because I assumed it would be a usual hetero-style romance thing, which it most definitely was not. […]

The Stranger Game by Cylin Busby

I’m cultivating a new love for YA thrillers, and The Stranger Game is so far a quiet gem for me. It began with the return of Nico’s missing sister, Sarah. Except that Sarah seemed‚Ķ not quite right.

Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

Sawkill Girls was a creepy, atmospheric YA horror (didn’t realise that for a while, my bad!) about a literal bogeyman that hunts and devours teenage girls on a lonely island called Sawkill Rock (I think […]

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas

After I read The Cheerleaders, I was pretty certain I’d enjoy other Kara Thomas YA mystery/thrillers, so I quickly found Little Monsters available on audiobook at my local library. I was right. I did enjoy Little Monsters a heck of a lot. Thomas has an awesome ability to realistically plot her mysteries to the point […]

The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas

I was so intrigued to read this book because it hinted that the deaths of 5 girls on the cheerleading team within a few months of each other was suspicious, and for some reason I was super keen to read about this mystery. I’m not normally into contemporary thrillers/mysteries, so I was surprised at how […]
