Petrichor | Melanie Rees

#7 in my Halloween Review Spree, Petrichor was a tear-jerking #YA #darkfantasy read. I highly recommend it if you enjoy stories targeted at younger generations. Be warned, though, there are a lot of heavy themes. For my full #bookrevew, please click here: https://www.kaylacreviews.com/2021/10/petrichor-by-melanie-rees.html.

Death by the River | Alexandrea Weis, Lucas Astor

This #YA #thriller was a great cautionary tale. There was a lot about it that I enjoyed, like the character development and the descriptions, but there were also some parts that simply felt off. All in all, I do recommend it, but mind the trigger warning.

Chrissyreadit I really enjoyed your review of the book- I‘m surprised the book isn‘t getting more buzz, it sounds prescient and creepy. I‘m on the fence of I can read it or it would disturb me. 2mo

Five stars for this one. This is the fifth #bookreview in my Halloween Review Spree. The Midnight Man was one of the best #mystery #thrillers I've read in terms of keeping me guessing. Looking for an unpredictable read? Here it is.

Legacy had a lot going for it, but I wish the pacing had been better. It didn't really keep me on the edge of my seat. All the same, the atmosphere was creepy and Coppel raised some interesting questions.

My third review for my Halloween Review Spree. I did enjoy certain aspects of this book, but I expected more supernatural #horror than was provided. I gave it four stars because of its redeeming qualities but almost gave it three. Still, Liane Carter is a wonderful writer. The characters were deep and the plots were unique.

Liner | Chris Coppel

Here's my second post for my Halloween Review Spree! Liner was an eerie read, but it struck me more as a mystery/romance than actual horror. Wanted more scares but was happy with the great character development.

“From epic battle scenes to heart-wrenching #romance, The Ancient Ones by Cassandra L. Thompson was a harrowing #gothic tale.“

This was the kick-off for my Halloween Review Spree. I LOVED this book. The final chapters threw me off a little, but I still highly #recommend this one. For my full #bookreview, please click here: https://www.kaylacreviews.com/2021/10/the-ancient-ones-by-cassandra-l-thompson.h...

4/5 stars
This was a decent #YA #thriller. Lots of #suspense. I felt the story could have been tightened up more and that it had untapped potential, but I still recommend it to fans of the genre. To read my full review, please click the link:

Monkey Around | Jadie Jang

Loved this fun #urbanfantasy #story. The narration was excellent and the author included a range of mythologies, not just European mythology. I received a copy of the audiobook version from Storytellers On Tour for a Book Blitz, and they're hosting a #giveaway too. Click the link below for my full review and giveaway links:

“I recommend BirthRights to fans of well-written adult #psychological #thrillers with compelling characters, spine-tingling scenes, and gut-wrenching twists.“

BirthRights didn't resonate with me quite as well as other thrillers have, but it was realistic, dark, and emotional. For my full #review, please click the link: https://www.kaylacreviews.com/2021/08/birthrights-by-carly-rheilan.html?spref=tw

21 Grams | M. Regan

21 Grams was so unique that I can't think of any #books like it. Suffice it to say that if you're a fan of philosophical, #gothic literature that provides great #lgbtq representation, I strongly suggest you check out 21 Grams by M. Regan.

This steampunk-influenced fantasy adventure swallowed me whole. Putting it down caused me anguish ... If you're looking for an adventurous, #lgbtq inclusive #story that'll sweep you off your feet, A Flight in the Heavens by Gabrielle Gagne-Cyr is the read for you.

If you're interested in reading a chilling #story detailing a man's frightening descent into madness, The Bedwetter by Lee Allen Howard may be just what you're looking for. The pace was slower than expected, but in all, it was a good #psychological #horror story.
