Ramblings of a Writer

28449207 Image from Goodreads

Lazlo Strange is not an ordinary boy, silent as a baby to the time he was placed in an orphanage his head is constantly in the clouds, dreaming of the lost city of Weep. Of course that is not its true name, its true name was lost and Lazlo means to discover it once again. In the tower hovering over the city of Weep Sarai lives, shut off from the world below she is trapped with her fellow godspawn who survived the slaughter of their family years ago. Their stories are intertwined in a true fairy tale with each destined to play their role until the very end.

Lazlo is a “strange” person who is instantly likeable and relatable. With his head always in a book I certainly got along well with him. And when his stories were taken away from him (mild spoiler) I felt all…

Review: Missing

Beach Bookworm

Title: Missing
Author: Ann Jones
Published: 2017
Page Count: 359
Rating: 3/5

I received this book from the author in return for an honest review. This in no way influences my opinion.

Missing follows a detective, Melinda (Lyn), who is working on a missing persons case with her partner Jud. As soon as Lyn sees the picture of the missing woman, she instantly and easily recognizes her, because it is her twin sister, Melissa. Lyn has not spoken or seen her sister since they were separated at a young age and she had no idea that Melissa was living in the same city as herself. Melissa was sent to one set of their grandparents and Lyn was sent to the other when their parents died from a drug overdose. Lyn and Jud set out to find Melissa and in the process Lyn discovers some more information on her past and…

Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine

Chicachiflada Books

This book tossed and turned me upside down, gripped my attention like an obsession due to the writing style and amazing cliffhangers.

I didn’t suspect many things which turned out in the end. The atrocities or the level of crime is quite substantial, so I would only recommend it to those who are used to the genre.

The characters sem to be in a continuous flow of action at both physical and psychological level. They are so well depicted and the relationships so intertwined that it may boggle the mind.

I’m going to check the sequel for sure, and very soon. I am so curious what will happen next with the Royals.

See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt

Lindsay's Book Reviews

IMG_1348

See What I Have Done is a totally creepy account of the infamous Lizzie Borden murders. I give it 4 out of 5 stars and it is the perfect read for the fall season!

I wasn’t sure what I would make of this book, being interested in the Lizzie Borden story but unsure how it would be in novel format.  I was happily surprised with this dark and ominous account of the murders. Lizzie Borden’s parents were found hacked to death in their home in 1892 Massachusetts. While the investigation ensues, Lizzie is eventually tried for the murders but is acquitted. The case eventually goes cold and is still unsolved.

See What I Have Done has turned this horrible tragedy into an intense psychological journey.  Each chapter is told from the point of view of one of the people who were in or around the home on the days before…

The Gallery of Unfinished Girls Review

sarah with the glasses

I recently attended a book launch in Atlanta for Lauren Karcz’s (pronounced “cars”) debut novel, The Gallery of Unfinished Girls. I remember speaking with her at Becky Albertalli’s launch panel, but didn’t think she would remember me. I recall feeling very frazzled the other night, particularly because my friend and I got there a bit late (we couldn’t find the building for a while, and I basically drove around in circles until we spotted the sign). Lauren was in the midst of a Q&A session, to which I asked if she would be attending the Decatur Book Festival Labor Day weekend, and other events later this year. To my delight, the answer was yes!

She also remembered my face at least, when I finally got to get my copy signed. It was like every signing I’d been to previously; small, intimate, and just the right amount of crowded. There were…
