Insane by Hollie Thubron

19250456_1583756291722464_8249608971830352342_o

 
“My name is Avery Blake. I will be the hero for the next 300 pages. Well, in my opinion I will be anyway. After all, this is my story.

My primary occupation is as a pharmaceutical rep. I hate to say I do love the sales and I definitely love the cash… But it doesn’t send adrenaline shooting through my body and make me bounce up and down like a kid in a sweet shop.

No, the things that really get me going include painting, volunteer work, killing, tap dancing and golfing.

Yes, you read that correctly.”

One person’s crazy is another person’s reality, with so much in this world being left to interpretation, is killing really wrong? Are serial killers really insane? Anyway, who are you to judge?

The locals of Southhurst would never dare wonder the streets alone at night, since there has been a serial killer terrorizing the area for fifteen years. But Avery Blake isn’t afraid.

Avery Blake is a serial killer. She kills because she enjoys it. But how long can she go on like this, before someone catches on?

Insane is a psychological thriller addressing the different perceptions of morality and what influences them.

Excerpt:

Welcome to the magical Hotel of Hoo.
Where I’ll be your host, Mr Nicholas Noo.

I’m sure you’ll be happy in room number 1.
You’ll be my first guests; before you, I had none.
Please explore my hotel, but whatever you do,
Don’t ever look behind door 32.

Through door number 2 are the grumpy old clowns.
I don’t think they’re funny,
but they help clean the grounds.

Through door number 3 are the fidgety knights.
They itch and they scratch,
but they fix all the lights.

Through door number 4 is the room where we eat,
Door-32-BrotherWhenever you’re hungry, come in, take a seat.
But just a reminder, when done with your stew,
Don’t ever look behind door 32.

 

Illustrated by Lenny Wen.
Published by TaleBlade Press.

 

Quotes from Reviews:

“B.C.R. Fegan combines the whimsical spirit of a Dr. Seuss book with the spine-tingling mystery of a haunted house in his picture book Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32.” – BlueInk (Starred Review)

“Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32 is both enjoyable and educational. With thirty-one doors to explore, the book is sure to entertain young children while also reinforcing early counting skills.” – Foreword Clarion Reviews

“What is behind door 32? The answer isn’t what readers will expect, and the finale of the charmingly rhymed book has a pleasing twist designed to make kids chuckle with relief that nothing really terrible is lurking.” – Kirkus Reviews

“The ending is excellent and unexpected. It is a good bedtime storybook for parents to read out at night and can be used for read aloud and story telling sessions in classrooms and school libraries.” – Readers’ Favorite

 

My Review:

Door-32-SisterA simple and fun story, that counts from 1-32
as you visit all the rooms in the Hotel of Hoo.
Along with two young guests we peek behind each door…
There are wonderful characters; goblins, ghosts, fairies and more.

The rhyming text is fun to read out loud, and for the most part it’s a fairly easy read although there are some challenging words for younger readers.

The book is filled, from cover to cover, with delightful illustrations!

An enjoyable and entertaining book.

My Review:

We rejoin Keisha, Rogan and the rest of the weird and wondrous characters for second season at the Windy Springs Renaissance Festival.

It’s a trying time for everyone, especially for Keisha as she struggles to combine taking care of her young daughter, Evie, alongside helping Layla, the threat from Captain Dash’s sister, Cordelia, and her new-found ‘knowing’.

It’s another wonderfully written book, with plenty of twists to keep me interested, with a cast of multi-dimensional characters, each with their own eccentricities, fears and flaws.

I hope the next book isn’t far from being ready 🙂

My Review:

The Coven Princess is Lily Luchesi’s first venture into the YA genre, and she has done it with style.

Harley was orphaned and adopted by humans at a young age. She’s a witch, but doesn’t know it until she’s visited by an odd gentleman after being expelled from school.

We join Harley, as she joins the witch community where she learns about magic and her heritage and makes new friends along the way.

The journey of self-discovery the Haley undertakes was an emotional rollercoaster ride for both Harley and myself.

The characters were all multi-dimensional, interesting and flawed and the storyline was well-thought out and exciting, keeping me on the edge of my seat.

Although The Coven Princess is loosely connected to Lily’s amazing Paranormal Detective books, you don’t have to know anything about the series to enjoy this YA read.

About the author:

Lily LuchesiLily Luchesi is the USA Today bestselling and award-winning author of the Paranormal Detectives Series, published by Vamptasy Publishing. She also has short stories included in multiple bestselling anthologies, and a successful dark erotica retelling of Dracula.

Amazon • Goodreads

Excerpt:

As they stepped onto the sidewalk, Aidan gripped her hand as if not to let it slip out. “I love you, Ellie. You know that, don’t you?”

How many times had she wished she could give up a second, a day, a year, half her life just to once more see Mother’s beautiful smile, feel her comforting embrace? But not now. Now she wouldn’t give up a single moment, even if that would bring back Mother. How could she give this up? This joy Aidan pulled to the surface so effortlessly. This energy which enveloped her as if it could lift her off the ground. Had she ever lived to the fullest? Was this how it felt? And all because of him? Those cutest of words?

She stopped to look at him. “I know.”

Aidan cupped her cheek and kissed her, all the while holding her hand. She couldn’t stop smiling, her teeth colliding with his, grazing his lips. She wished she could capture them in a photograph, one she could go back to when her memory failed her. But her mind would have to do. Her crazy happy mind.
