Book Description

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could see the future?

At first, Chaz Anderson thought the same thing, but he quickly realized that the saying “with great power comes great responsibility” is true. Chaz was living a relaxed life as a high schooler when he discovered these future-seeing powers. With these powers came a responsibility to protect the people of the Dream World, a medieval land he gets pulled into every time he goes to sleep.

Can Chaz be the hero the Dream World needs and figure out an epic way to ask his crush to prom? Sounds like a lot to ask from a high schooler . . .

Experience a high schoolers epic medieval adventure in the first book of the Dreamchasers Series!

My Thoughts

This is Daniel’s very first book and one of the few requests directly from authors that I have not DNF’d. It is pretty good. It’s interesting in a YA Fantasy to have it first person narrated by a teenage boy. The ones I usually read are narrated by teenage girls. The dialogue can be a bit forced at times, but over all, it’s an inventive story and a fun read.

Genre: Suspense Thriller

Book Description

How do you kill a spider?

Kate O’Brien is pure dedication; she believes in the justice system. This feisty, no-nonsense attorney works herself to the bone every day, tirelessly building her reputation and career. She is on the path to being a legal star. That is until her corrupt law partner, Bill Brown, a criminal defense attorney, achieves a degree of notoriety which attracts the interest of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

When the inconceivable happens, Bill is arrested, charged with multiple counts of drug trafficking and money laundering leaving the law firm in chaos. As Kate slowly digs her way out, what she finds sends her down a dark path that could lead to her imprisonment or death. Bill has meticulously set her up to pay for his malevolent crimes. His cohorts, fearing she knows too much, have marked her for death. Can she stay ahead of the FBI and unravel crimes that reach as far as China and Russia? Or will she need to assume a new identity to save her own life?

A fast-paced thriller that keeps you guessing until the end. Suspenseful crime fiction with twists and turns throughout this masterfully plotted novel keeps you on the edge of your seat. It may be read as a standalone and serves as the first book in the series, A Conspiracy of Betrayal.

My Thoughts

Spider Games was good. I found that I didn’t have a lot to say when I sat down to write the review though, which tells me it was good but just didn’t have anything that excited me about it. It is a Kindle Unlimited book and I definitely think it’s worth downloading through there but I don’t know that I would buy it.

Genre: Psychological Thriller

Book Description

Two wildly different women–one a grifter, the other an heiress–are brought together by the scam of a lifetime in a page-turner from the New York Times bestselling author of Watch Me Disappear.

Nina once bought into the idea that her fancy liberal arts degree would lead to a fulfilling career. When that dream crashed, she turned to stealing from rich kids in L.A. alongside her wily Irish boyfriend, Lachlan. Nina learned from the best: Her mother was the original con artist, hustling to give her daughter a decent childhood despite their wayward life. But when her mom gets sick, Nina puts everything on the line to help her, even if it means running her most audacious, dangerous scam yet.

Vanessa is a privileged young heiress who wanted to make her mark in the world. Instead she becomes an Instagram influencer–traveling the globe, receiving free clothes and products, and posing for pictures in exotic locales. But behind the covetable façade is a life marked by tragedy. After a broken engagement, Vanessa retreats to her family’s sprawling mountain estate, Stonehaven: A mansion of dark secrets not just from Vanessa’s past, but from that of a lost and troubled girl named Nina.

Nina, Vanessa, and Lachlan’s paths collide here, on the cold shores of Lake Tahoe, where their intertwined lives give way to a winter of aspiration and desire, duplicity and revenge.

This dazzling, twisty, mesmerizing novel showcases acclaimed author Janelle Brown at her best, as two brilliant, damaged women try to survive the greatest game of deceit and destruction they will ever play.

  1. Spider Games sounds good but the description also kinda confuses me? I’m not sure what to think of it. The cover of Pretty Things looks really good but I’m not sure if I would read it. 🤔
    Anyway, have a great week. Happy reading! 💛

    1. Spider Games is good. I‘m sure if you’ve never read anything by KJ McGillick, you will really enjoy it. I think my lack of excitement has to do with the fact that I saw a lot of elements in it that I saw in her previous trilogy. But definitely worth a go 😊
