Reblogged from Obsidian Blue:

 

Psych: Psychological thrillers, plot twists and suspense, unreliable narrators and other mind-fuckery. And, as an aside, any Halloween Bingo book that takes place within or related to an insane asylum, haunted or otherwise, would qualify!

Bakemonogatari: Monster Tale (Manga) #1

 

Series
Rating: 3 .5 
A team-up made in manga heaven! The wildly popular Monogatari novel series by renowned bestselling author NISIOISIN has now been reimagined into a knockout manga adapation by none other than legendary artist Oh!Great (Tenjo Tenghe, Air Gear)!
One day, high-school student Koyomi Araragi catches a girl named Hitagi Senjougahara when she trips. But—much to his surprise—she doesn’t weigh anything. At all. She says an encounter with a so-called “crab” took away all her weight …
Monsters have been here since the beginning. Always. Everywhere
 
My thoughts
Would I recommend it ? yes if you like or love manga 
Will I go on with this series? I don't know
Manga is't something I pick up to read , in fact I don't read it at but as soon as I saw this one I was like I'll give it a try. there was times I was a little confused or a lot confused on what was going on and what the story was about , but the story does show promising . With that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion.

Synopsis:

Accidentally hitched to a dream. Now for the catch…

I didn’t even say “I do.”
One crank call and I’m insta-wife to a tattooed behemoth and mother to his kids.
He’s paying my idiot boss a fortune for the perfect cover.
Because trouble found Miller Rush, and he found me.

A rock hard, overprotective rebel with a cause.
Father of the century.
Abs wound tighter than his attitude, stomping around my house, barking orders.
Something’s got to give, okay?

But it won’t be me.
Not my courage, even when my nosy mother smells drama.
Not my heart set on helping two little angels and their perma-grump dad.
Definitely not my body screaming Mayday because his bedroom eyes are magnets.

Deep breath.
It’s only a few weeks.
It’s only a whole crew of freaky people coming after him.
It’s only pretend and I’m so not letting this Mrs. Rush thing go to my head.
Why didn’t anyone warn me some knots can’t be untied?

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Nicole Snow – a high stakes marriage mistake with a twist. One hulking superdad hero goes all-in to save his family and the wife he wasn’t supposed to keep. Full-length romance novel with a Happily Ever After sugar rush.

Accidental Rebel Excerpt

 

(Gwen)

 

“You okay, Gwen?”

I snap open my eyes at Miller’s question. My fake husband leans against the short wall that separates the entryway from the living room. And to be perfectly honest, he looks like he just stepped out of one of my mother’s books.

Awesome.

Just what I need right now. A brutal reminder of how huge and hot he is, and how he’s probably as sick of this stuff as I am.

His dark hair is cut short, still rumpled from his nap. His black shirt hugs his broad chest like a second skin. So do the black jeans, and even in his socks, you could just eat him up. Whipped cream optional.

The worst part is, it’s a normal, almost boring look. How can that be sexy?

Hell if I know, but it is. Something hums in my veins I’ve never felt before, this heated rush that has far too much to do with Mr. Rush and not the adrenaline attack of the past twenty-four hours.

“Gwen?”

I try to nod. My name rolls off his tongue like warm caramel drips down the side of a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

His bright-blue eyes no longer look so tired, so worn out. Now they have a shine to them.

There’s more, too. He’s concerned. Rightfully so.

This guy and his twins are on the lam. That’s got to bother him deeply. Heck, I’m not even him, this isn’t my mess, and it’s not any easier for me.

If only that were true. Because I went and made it my mess when I let Manny talk me into helping Miller Rush twice.

I push off the door, hating how flustered I must look. “I’m fine. Let’s just eat.”

“Hoped you’d say that. It’s ready.”

He doesn’t have to remind me. My entire house has never smelled this good in my life. It pales even compared to the time I tried to cook a whole turkey dinner for Mother and her happy little M.E. Court team. She wound up rushing to my rescue. Turns out my cooking skills are far more impressive in my head.

Maybe I’m dreaming this. An overly handsome, wildly sexy stranger in my house has just cooked up a fabulous meal from my meagerly supplied cupboards. That’s more than a dream.

It’s a flipping fairy tale.

 

Who needs a glass slipper? Not this girl.

Torture of the Mountain Man

39092553. sy475

 

Title: Torture Of the Mountain Man
Series: The Last Mountain Man #46

Author: William W. Johnstone & J. A. Johnstone

November 27th 2018
Pages : 336
Rating: 5
When Smoke Jensen is summoned to a small Texas town under siege by a scourge of kill-crazy bandits, volunteers line up to take out the Mountain Man. Being Smoke Jensen, he wouldn’t have it any other way.

A gunshot wound has robbed Audubon, Texas, of its top lawman at the worst possible time. Clete Lanagan and his band of outlaws have hatched a scheme to plunder the town bank of a small fortune in railroad money. When the acting sheriff, Dalton Conyers—half-brother of Smoke’s niece Rebecca—is unable to raise a posse to hunt down Lanagan’s gang, he calls on Smoke for help.

But with so much cash at stake, Lanagan won’t go down without a fight. With a bounty on his head, Smoke finds himself marked for death by a legendary gunslinger, a wrathful ranch hand bent on revenge for his brother’s death, and an army of trigger-happy recruits with nothing to lose but their lives.
 
My thoughts
Would I recommend it : yes'
Would I read any more by this author? yes
No matter how many times I read their books , its still like its the first time I've picked them up, no matter the story line or series, there's just something about their writing that I love and it has made them one of my all time favorite authors to read. This series never gets old for me even if I am reading it out of order but that's never been a problem for me , because I keep getting lost in the story , the characters come to life off the pages as well as the places the story take place in , with that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion.

The Devil's Fingers

39681135. sy475

One Size Eats All #3

WHAT HAS LONG PINK FINGERS AND SMELLS LIKE ROTTING FLESH?
It is a slime-covered fungus known for its pinkish red tentacles and pungent odor. It is indigenous to Australia but has spread to North America. Its Latin name is Clathrus Archeri, also known as Octopus Stinkhorn. Most people call it The Devil’s Fingers . . .

I DON’T KNOW BUT IT’S GROWING ON YOUR NECK.
Deep in the woods of Washington, botanist Autumn Winters stumbles onto a field of the luridly colored fungi. Two of her fellow campers make the mistake of touching it. Now it’s growing on them. Fleshy gelatinous pods. Sprouting from their skin. Feeding on their blood . . .

AND IT’S STILL GROWING.
Autumn watches in horror as her friends are transformed into monstrosities—grotesque, human-fungal hybrids as contagious and deadly as any virus. Autumn knows she must destroy these mutations before they return to civilization. But if there’s one thing that spreads faster than fear,
it’s The Devil’s Fingers . . .


My thoughts
rating: 4
would i read any more by this author: yes
Hunter Shea is a go to author of mine ,even if his a hit or miss for me, and I can't believe that it took me this long to read this , because after reading this I'm not going outside at all. There's no way that I want a fungus to take over my body. And not just any fungus but a fungus that could kill you, and has no problem in do so, just like the first 2 books in this series , there is a touch of what you would see in the old black and white movies which I love to watch , in fact I would say that this would have been a good one to watch if it was a movie from the 50s or 60s ,because they knew how to make movies back then, I'm not sure if they could do it today or not with out missing the up the story. With that said I want to say thanks to Netgalley for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion.
