Book Review: Thrilling Virtual Reality, Cut Off

By the blurb, readers would’ve become hooked if they loved Warcross or Lost. Finlay created a horrifically thrilling world that tests what’s real and what isn’t. If you’re a typical thriller fan like myself and love elements of sci-fi, romance, and intrigue—it’d take you no time to finish such a book. Each contestant has their own reasons—and their own secrets—for joining the new virtual reality show CUT/OFF that places a group of teenagers alone in the wilderness. It’s a simple premise: whoever lasts the longest without “tapping out” wins a cash prize. Not only that, new software creates a totally unprecedented television experience, allowing viewers to touch, see, and live everything along

Book Review: Written in Verses, I Am Here Now

Written in verses, Barbara Bottner takes readers back to the sixties where Maisie is figuring out life as a teenager and seeking that love she rarely receives at home. Bottner takes us on a journey of ups and downs where on the way readers learn a thing or two. Written in this format, it’s a quick read but deals with a lot of issues our main character, Maisie faces. Her mother, Judith, hardly shows adoration toward her, so she leans toward her father more for the love she’s searching for. Her best friend, Ritchie, also faces a similar problem where his dad is abusive. The plot flowed gradually with Maisie meeting Rachel, her profound best friend who, in her eyes, lives the ideal life.

Yet this book not only left me questioning the legal system but myself if I ever wanted to pursue those sorts of occupations. We all put our faith in the criminal justice system. We trust the professionals: the police, the lawyers, the judges, the expert witnesses. But what happens when the process lets us down and the wrong person ends up in jail? Henry Keogh spent almost twenty years locked away for a murder that never

Blog Tour Book Review: Tribal Lores

Another book that has blown my mind from a few chapters. For me, it was one of those books where I’d read the blurb and—no reaction—start the book with zero expectations. I’m glad I went into Tribal Lores with that mindset! It took me a while to read since this is a lengthy novel and covers a lot! A moving and explosive tale about what happens when tradition and the need to belong collide. Frankie Rescio is struggling with the death of his sister. Next door, Lochie Marsh is about to have his world invaded by his estranged, pregnant half-sister and her layabout boyfriend. Despite tensions simmering just below the surface for both boys and their families, they form a bond that connects their d
