Dark Matter By Blake Crouch - (Synopsis: “Are you happy with your life?” Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious. Before he awakens to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits. Before a man, Jason’s never met smiles down at him and says, “Welcome back, my friend.” In this world he’s woken up to, Jason’s life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible.Is it this world or the other that’s the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could’ve imagined—one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe.
   This book was mind-blowing, heart throbbing, addictively good! I read this book two weeks ago and still can’t stop thinking about it. If Sci-fi thrillers aren’t your thing, I promise you this book will have you wanting more. From the very first page, you’re hooked and sucked down this rabbit hole of thoughts that make you question your whole life! My first
Blake Crouch book and certainly not my last 
Rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Hush by Kate White - (Synopsis: Four months after their separation, marketing consultant Lake Warren faces a tough legal battle with her husband, Jack, for custody of their two kids. Though the timing couldn't be worse, she finds herself responding to the flirtations of Dr. Mark Keaton, her handsome colleague at the Advanced Fertility Center. But the morning after their one-night stand, Lake discovers Keaton with his throat slashed. Afraid of losing her children forever, Lake lies to the police—and begins searching for the truth on her own before she can be charged with the heinous crime. She starts getting hostile treatment from her coworkers, and strange clues start appearing, quite literally, on her doorstep. Soon Lake is pulled dangerously close to the very dark secrets surrounding the slain man and the clinic where they worked. And suddenly the police are not the only ones hunting Lake Warren.)

I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars - The beginning was brilliant, fast-paced and exciting but my God did the middle drag on forever. I will say the ending was unexpected – I say this book is a stronger 3.Check out my Goodreads account :)


Book Review | A Stolen Life

Thursday, June 29, 2017

A Stolen Life - (Synopsis: In the summer of June of 1991, I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother that loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen. for eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation. On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugald. I don't think of myself as a victim, I simply survived an intolerable situation. A stolen life is my story - in my own word, in my own way, exactly as I remember it.)

     A Stolen Life is a memoir based on Jaycee Dugard abduction back in 1991, Jaycee did not hold back in her book. She helped her readers by giving a detail understanding of what it was to be held captive for almost two decades. Although the book can be very disturbing and at time disgusting based on her abductor actions, you can't help but feel inspired by Jaycee strength and resilience. 

Book Review | Small Great Things

Sunday, January 22, 2017

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult - (Synopsis: Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more the twenty years' experience. During her shit, Ruth begins a routine checkup on newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she's been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don't want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Dose she obey orders or does she intervene?)

           I loved this book!!!!! I give it five out of five stars, this book is written in three perspectives. Ruth the African American nurse, Kenndy her lawyer & Turk the white supremacists. I don't want to say much with out giving any spoiler alerts! But this book really helped capture what is going on in today society when it comes to culture, racism and acceptance.
