Wow. Just wow.. This novel is the true definition of a psychological thriller. It’s eerie, dark, mind bending, terrifying.. the stuff of nightmares. If HP Lovecraft and Stephen King had a baby, this would be the product of two ingenious minds. ⁣
If you read this one - make sure you’re paying attention. Its subtle changes are clever and strategically placed! ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

This is the first novel I’ve ever read that’s entirely written in verse - and it was absolutely devastating, but beautiful. The novel is tragic, impactful, full of hope. Highly recommended. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

Intriguing, unique, magical. A serious page turner; the thrill of not knowing what the next page held kept me reading. The character developments gradually change at their own perfect pace; the vivid descriptions of locations as they travel through the Seven Kingdoms painted beautiful pictures in my mind. A perfect blend of fantasy and adventure. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

The Institute is a terrifying, psychological thriller that sits on the shoulders of young children, all of whom display extraordinary abilities and intelligence. Inside its walls, experiments are performed for classified reasons, children are held against their will, and heroes sometimes come in unexpected ways.

In a surprisingly satisfying deviation from his usual classic horror stories, this novel is completely mind-bending, suspenseful, terrifying, and heart breaking. An instant favorite for me, and a perfect choice for anyone who wants to start reading books by King. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

It came in the rain...
Bloom is a fantastic, alien survival adventure series that is creepy, thrilling, and an instant favorite! This novel is packed full of action and adventure that’ll leave you dangling precariously from its deadly vines, eager for the next book in the trilogy. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon
