A Deadly Influence Book Review

A Deadly Influence is a well-written story that uniquely explores a possible cult conspiracy-based kidnapping in the age of social media. While I didn’t fall in love with the characters, I thoroughly enjoyed how Omen used their backgrounds to move the story forward. A highly entertaining read for my fellow booknerds who love a fast-paced mystery story full of murders, coverups, and a shocking ending.

The Invention of Sound Book Review

Once again, Chuck Palahniuk pushes our boundaries in his newest horror novel: The Invention of Sound. I’m a long-time Palahniuk fan. His work isn’t for everyone, as he often explores sensitive and controversial topics, which is why you’ll often find negative reviews of his books. Palahniuk’s creativity and writing style often keep you confused until the very end when he skillfully brings everything together. I’ve never read a Palahniuk book that I didn’t love.

The End is Nigh Book Review

Wool by Hugh Howey is one of my favorite books of all time. It made me fall in love with apocalyptic stories by demonstrating that such stories aren’t just about crumbling worlds because of zombie-creating infections. I had to pick this book up when I saw Hugh Howey edited and wrote a story for The End is Nigh.
