Blog Tour: Dead Girls Society by Michelle Krys

Dead Girls Society Blog Tour When I read the summary for Dead Girls Society I knew it would be a book that I would enjoy.  We all know I love me a good thriller, right? This book was definitely that. Dead Girls Society is about a girl named Hope, who’s living with Cystic Fibrosis.  This may sound morbid, but I love reading books when the main characters have some kind of illness.  I know, I know. I can’t help it though, it’s the nurse in me.

I was so very intrigued with this story that I new I had to give it a go. I kind of wanted an Aria and Ezra thing going on…and I think that’s where I got my hopes up. Charlie was such a magnificent character. I really loved her and if I could read another Alcott story about just Charlie and her future endeavors I would be set. Alcott writes beautifully and I was so in to her writing, but the story just didn’t get my full intention. I mean, it did, hell, […]

Book Review | Gated by Amy Christine Parker

 On the outside, Mandrodage Meadows looks like your ordinary suburban community.  But, Mandrodage Meadows isn’t as suburban as it looks.  All of the residents that reside there were hand-picked by a guy called Charles Manson Pioneer.  Pioneer is a prophet and he was given visions of the future and impending apocalypse by the ‘Brethren’.  Supposedly, the Brethren has sent him on a mission to gather certain people to live in The Community in order to build an underground bunker for when the end comes.  Or so he says.    Lyla and her family moved to the Community after her sister, Karen, was kidnapped.  Pioneer came to them after Karen’s disappearance and offered them a way to escape the ‘evils’ of […]
