The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages: 403
Genre: Horror
Rating: 3 stars


Four decades after it first shook the nation, then the world, William Peter Blatty’s thrilling masterwork of faith and demonic possession returns in an even more powerful form. Raw and profane, shocking and blood chilling, it remains a modern parable of good and evil and perhaps the most terrifying novel ever written.


The Exorcist has been a most talked about book and movie. Growing up my father had the movie but I was not allowed to watch it due to how scary it was. I still have yet seen the film so I have no idea if it is scary or if it’s something I could watch straight through.

Chris an famous actress is finishing filming in Georgetown. At first her and her daughter have a normal routine going, until a pounding starts happening. Events start to escalate and all are surrounded by Regan. Chris takes her to the best doctors around until the last ditch effort is to go to the church.

While reading this I didn’t really find it scary. After a while it was a chore to get through. I am one in few who found this not meeting the hype. I just can’t find myself to truly like the story. I’m just glad it’s over. I can cross it off my TBR list.

Look Forward, Me being me!

Busy! Busy! Busy!

Hey y’all.

Sorry I haven’t posted as much as I normally have, but this spring/summer I’m super busy. I am having to call off getting anymore ARCs than what I have due to I don’t have time to add more to the list. I am running behind on the ones I do have and I feel so so bad about it. But I am listing what I will be doing over the next few months and what I will have coming up.

Non-book related:

Okay so reason I am so busy is graduations, kayak trips, and weddings. Today after I get off work I will be heading up to Wy and I’s friend Ry-dog’s parent’s place for the last graduation we need to go to. Ry-dog’s little sister, whom Wy has known since she was a toddler get’s to walk the stage tomorrow and enter the wonderful life of adulthood.

Wy and I kayak a lot in the summer so we have three trips listed so far. The earliest will be Memorial Weekend. Our longest trip so far this year is planned in July when Ry-dog and his soon to be wife will be back from their honeymoon. Which brings me to their wedding we will be going too. Wy is a groomsmen and it is the weekend before my birthday so since my birthday falls on a Monday and it will be an open bar I will be secretly celebrating my birthday as well as celebrating Ry-dog marrying his perfect girl. (Like seriously I want to write a book based off these two.)

In the start of August we have our county fair and derby going on. I don’t have much planned yet for August. In September we are going to Colorado to visit my dad and brother while bring our friend Rosh with us so he can experience Colorado and the beautiful mountains for the first time. We are also taking him to his first Rockies game.

So far I have yet to plan out June books so I will be doing that on the trip today. I do have three books I’m reading now that are not ARCs and 2 of 6 ARCs that I am reading. So busy on the reading front as well. I am hoping to get the reviews of at least four of those books up sometime next week. Even if I have to do it through my phone which I hate doing because of the small keyboard and auto correct. But as long as I get it done.

So that is what I’m looking forward to for the next few months. I hope y’all have a great summer and have much time to read.

Secrets and Scars by Dori Lavelle

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages: 200
Series: Fatal Hearts #3 Last Installment
Genre: Dark, Thriller
Rating:3.5 stars


This is the final boo kin the Fatal Hearts Series. Please read Secrets and Lace first.

The nightmare is far from over.

Alvin Jones, Chloe’s Husband from hell, is hot on their trail.

Her nose is picking up his scent. Her skin feels the heat of his rage. Her tongue tates death- hers and Owen’s.

Owen Firmin has rescued her from her worst nightmare, but will they be able to cross a dangerous island filled with traps and other hazards in order to reach Owen’s yacht, and their only real chance of escape?

Chloe has learned the hard way that life is full of surprises. The next one could be waiting just around the corner.


The first half of this book is amazing. It sucked me in and I was loving it. Around 54% is when it started to drag a bit. While Alvin’s plot line was great I didn’t like Owen’s.

In this book we see a whole different Owen then the one we met in the first book.

I want to write a lengthy review but I would spoil the entire book and I don’t want to do that.

The ending is what killed the book for me. I’m still comparing it to His Agenda and it fell short. A lot short.

Can’t win them all.
