Book teasers: False Memory, by Meli Raine

There are books that fit firmly into their assigned genre, and then there are books that fit firmly into their assigned genre. False Memory, by Meli Raine, is definitely one of the latter.

The book is tagged as a suspense, and, based on its summary and today’s teasers, it easily earns its place in the genre. I’m sure you’ll agree as soon as you take a look.

Before you do, though, stop by Meli’s rafflecopter, where she’s giving away a $25 gift card.

Okay, ready to check out False Memory?

Updated book recommendation: The House of Small Shadows, by Adam Nevill

(Note: This recommendation was first published in March of 2015. You can see the original version here.)

It’s getting close to Halloween, which means a lot of us are craving books, movies, and TV shows that fall into the creepier set of genres.

Then again, I can crave that sort of thing any time of the year. Sometimes I just need to read something that shakes me up a little bit.

Luckily, I can turn to books like The House of Small Shadows, by Adam Nevill, to achieve that effect. I’ve read this one twice now–and the reason I’ve only read it twice is because of how easily it gets under my skin. It’s that creepy, and it stuck with me for so long that I couldn’t pick it up again without remembering what happened in it, shuddering slightly, and putting it back down. I needed some time away from it before I could read it again.

Then, after time passed, I read it again this summer. And I’m happy to say I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time I read it.

Book excerpt: Crazy Scottish Love, by Jessie Donovan

Sweet and funny–it’s such a wonderful combination. And I can’t ask for much more when it comes to a romance novel.

I knew when I read the summary for Jessie Donovan’s Crazy Scottish Love that I had found the exact type of comedic romance that I tend to enjoy most. Today’s excerpt only provided extra confirmation, and somehow managed to make me want to read the book more than I already did.

That wouldn’t have been an easy thing to do, let me tell you.

It will, however, be easy for you to get just as hooked on this novel as I am. Before you do, though, take a moment to enter Jessie’s rafflecopter, where she’s giving away a $25 Amazon (US) gift card, a tartan scarf, and a mini-swag pack of goodies from Scotland.

Book excerpt: Cutie Pies and Deadly Lies, by Addison Moore

Here’s the thing about Cutie Pies and Deadly Lies, by Addison Moore: I love the concept of it. I fell in love with it as soon as I read the summary. I mean, a woman who knows something ominous is going to happen because she sees dead pets? How can you not want to read a book about that?

At the very least, that little bit of a teaser should make you want to read today’s excerpt–which is great, by the way. Funny and intriguing all at once.

Before you take a look, though, stop by Addison’s giveaway, where you have the chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card and a signed copy of Cutie Pies and Deadly Lies.

Book recommendation: Little Fires Everywhere, by Celeste Ng

This is another one of those posts that’s coming to you later than I meant it to, but means no less to me because of that. I read Celeste Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere earlier in the summer, as part of a book club. I really quite enjoyed it, and knew as soon as I started it that I would be posting a recommendation for it.

It just… took me a while to actually write that recommendation. That’s due to no fault of the book, of course. Trust me. This is definitely one you’re going to want to pick up and start reading for yourself.

Let me tell you a little more about it.
