Review: Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom Animal Kingdom by Iain Rob Wright
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very, very good!
Really enjoyed this book. I listened to the audioversion of it. The narration was great.
The story itself was awesome, such a great concept. I love Iain's writing, it just seems to flow and makes for very enjoyable reading.
Can definitely recommend this to pretty much anyone. It draws you in pretty much straight away and the character development is done so well that you find yourself detesting some while rooting for others.
Check it out.

Review: The Influence

The Influence The Influence by Bentley Little
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I listened to the audioversion of this book. I really enjoyed it. My first taste of Bentley Little, but it certainly won't be the last.
I'll be honest. I didn't even read the synopsis. I just wanted to try one of Little's books so I picked this one at random. Really glad that I did!
Quite a bit more graphic than I was expecting, I mean, I've read and written some pretty messed up stuff but one scene in this book actually make me wince.
Definitely recommend!

Review: Amnesia

Amnesia Amnesia by Matt Hickman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Really enjoyed this book. Started off as a little bit of a slow burner, but you could feel that it was going to get really dark. It was like a blanket just slowly coming over the characters, slighter changes here and there in their mannerisms. and then boom! It goes off, and it goes off big time into a complete brutal gore fest.
Really finishes with a bang. Good fun read, would definitely recommend.

Review: The Crow Girl

The Crow Girl The Crow Girl by Erik Axl Sund
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I was listening to the audioversion of this book. I've gotten about 8 hours in and had to give up.
I'm not sure if it was a lack of attention on my part with it being audio and not a proper book, although I've never had an issue with them before, but I just could not follow what was going on anymore.
It was constantly jumping back and forth between characters and time periods until the point that i was confusing one character with another.
So sadly this one will go down as DNF.

Review: The Darkening

The Darkening The Darkening by Christopher Motz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My first read by Motz and it won't be my last!
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. A really good coming of age horror story.
It actually had a real feel of Stranger Thing, the TV show to it.
I've heard recently through the grapevine that there's a sequel in the works to this book.
I'm really looking forward to that.
