Title: At The End of Everything  Author: Marieke Nijkamp Expected Publication: January 25, 2022 Publisher: SourceFireBooks  Genre: Young Adult Contemporary,  thriller, suspense Pages: 400 pages  Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Review:  Wow! What a book! So this is definitely something that I felt relevant to right now especially with barely starting to get over covid myself. I was literally kept on the edge of my seat for most of it and I do think that this was a trip! The Hope Juvenile Treatment Center is kind of named in mockery form of a sense, there is no hope and when an epidemic outbroke the guards, social services, the national guard everyone just left the kids there. While some of the kids broke off and decided to take their luck somewhere else and take off a bunch of the kids stayed and tried to make the best of it to basically survive. While there were *TW DEATH* and the kids worked with themselves to take care of their own and to try the best they could on the medical care it was t

Title: The Golden Couple  Author: Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen  Expected Publication: March 8, 2022 Publisher: St. Martin's Press  Genre: Mystery/ Thriller  Pages: 336 pages  Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Review:  OMG This is one that I was really enthusiastic to read because I have loved EVERYTHING that these two authors have written and just a little secret (they didn't let me down! I was glued to my kindle the last 40% of the book!) Marissa Bishop sought out Avery Chambers to help her with her marriage. Marissa had a fling and she wanted to tell her husband in a controlled environment, where she and he could work out their differences and heal their marriage. Avery is just the unorthodox therapist to do this, see she only takes clients that she can help in 10 visits because she has a system that works. So while they work through her program they can be in a different place than when they first came to see her. So, while it seems that the Bishops are getting through their

Title: These Silent Woods  Author: Kim Cunningham Grant  Expected Publication: October 26, 2021 Publisher: Minotaur Books Genre: Mystery/ Thriller  Pages: 288 pages  Rating: 5⭐ Review:  A father with a secret and his daughter living in the remote Appalachian Mountains, no electricity, no family, and basically no connection to the outside world. When Cooper's friend, Jake does not show up to give them supplies as he has previously in the years that they had been up there. With this action, a chain of events happens to change their safe haven and a stranger appears on their land. This is a powerful novel and definitely shows the importance of a father and daughter relationship. I loved that the descriptions were completely on point! The area was described soo well I could visualize it! The fiery love that the father has for his daughter is amazing, and while since the beginning we knew that the day of wrecking is going to come for Cooper and that is what feels like a hand

Cleo receives this clue on her 18th birthday, and while she originally thought that it was her best friend Hope leaving the messages she soon comes to the realization that it's something way more sinister than she originally thought.

His body was never recovered, and now almost a year later she is having a very sinister scavager hunt with clues that has everything to do with t

There is a bit of mystery and a mix of fantasy, which is right up my alley! So Sophie is offered a job at the Ayredale Library, and TBH who wouldn't jump to an opportunity to work at the library? But, not only is this THE Library that is the collection of antique books and things like that this is also the last place her mother was seen at. Originally she thought that her mother had abandoned her and she wants to see if she can finally find out what exactly happened to her mother. So, when she arrives at the Library she feels at home, and then she finds out she has some magical powers along with her very talented skills of bookbinding. I loved the magic with this book, I really loved that a Library was the main place of this story. I also loved the climax as ever

I don't even know where to begin with this book. Let's just say this should become a Netflix show or movie, it is real and raw. The novel takes you through a 360-degree turn in all the emotions: happy, hope, despair, fear, sadness, embarrassment for the characters, and strength. This is definitely the book that will bring you to tears more than once. This story follows Emory. While Emory seems to have very big shoes to fill, she is also a normal teenager and things do not always go the way we want them. At the beginning of the book Emory and her brother along with her brother's friend, Luther and Candy are in a car accident after leaving a party. While Emory suffers from a knee injury, Luther loses an eye and is sent to Juvi, Joey because he had overdosed on Heroi
