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.

Cover reveal: The Forgotten Child, by Melissa Erin Jackson

What is it about children that take a horror or mystery novel and amp the creepy factor up an extra couple of notches? Seriously. Even the child on the cover of this one managed to unsettle me, and that was before I read the summary.

But, I’m getting ahead of myself. Or ahead of you, at least. It’s just that I couldn’t stop myself from sharing that little tidbit about the cover of Melissa Erin Jackson’s The Forgotten Child. You’ll understand why once you see it, I promise.

And really, you won’t have to wait long. All you have to do is click on through–or scroll down if you’re already here on the blog.

Book excerpt: Go Home, Afton, by Brent Jones

Sometimes, all it takes to get hooked on a book is a short little excerpt. You read just a few sentences from one of the first chapters, and you’re left wanting to devour the entire book.

Today, I have exactly that sort of excerpt for you. This excerpt from Go Home, Afton, by Brent Jones, may be short, but it proves that the book deserves to be in the thriller genre. It’s tense, and hints strongly at what’s to come in the rest of the novel.

Before you check it out, though, take a moment to enter Brent’s rafflecopter, where he’s giving away ten ebook copies of Go Home, Afton.
