ALICE strongly reminds me of the video game of the same name with the undertitle "Madness Returns" - which suit yourself, book, it seems as if this was perfectly made for you. It's bloody, creepy at times with the clever use of modern-ish elements. Trigger Warning, though: murder, rape, sexual content, mental health issues, death and graphic descriptions… Weiterlesen (Review) „Alice“ – Christina Henry.
Question: Who keeps spending too much money because they keep buying more and more books ? Answer: me. Reason: my brain keeps changing 'no more books this month' to 'more books this month because it's your birthday month #treatyoself'. And my wallet and my heart keep listening to that stupid reckless voice. *le sigh* Aftercare Instructions - Bonnie… Weiterlesen August book haul. (aka These books found a new home.)
It's going to get messy real' soon. This is difficult; while writing this blogpost I'm still not sure what to say, what not to say, what to quote, what not to quote.

(bUT… Weiterlesen Bookly News (aka Things of Interest) #3 // All Souls, Dumplin, Good Omens & lots of beautiful cover reveals. (And more!)

It's a whole scale. 1-10. 1-100. Not only 1 and 10. Or 1 and 100. You could also say: there isn't… Weiterlesen Idolizing future releases.
IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN. Top 5 Wednesday is in the house! And this weeks topic is the books that were on an all-time-high in the middle of the series (aka #TheSecondBookIsBest). (Goodreads-group right here.) This was 100% more difficult than it seems, my guys. Though! I did find some that really fit that title quite… Weiterlesen “ Second Book is Best“ #T5W
