Bone Music (Burning Girl #1) Reviews
"They didn't plan to kill my mother. She wasn't like the other women, the ones they stalked and captured. The ones who came to in a cold root cellar miles from where they'd been abducted, hog-tied and disoriented, their faces pressed to the dirt floor."
What an opening, right? After a long and fruitless reading slump, I was beginning to think that maybe my love of thrillers had dissipated. The domestic, trendy, psychological thrillers just haven't been doing it for me lately; I was in desperate n ...more

Growing up, I was always a fan of reading. Always. A book or two here or there, sometimes more in the summer, sometimes more in the winter. But, I always read. Then came a moment in my freshman year of high school where I stumbled upon A DENSITY OF SOULS by Christopher Rice. Mind you, I do not remember how I found this novel, where I bought it, or how I had even heard of it. What I do remember vividly is every moment after I opened the novel. I remember bringing it with me everywhere, sneaking i ...more
4.5 this book so surprised me stars
Walking into my local library, I spotted this book on a shelf for new arrivals. Looks interesting I thought, but really another thriller? This one looked different because it was not only a thriller but also had a sci fi mention in its book cover blurb. So, I picked it up thinking I'll probably read a bit and set it down. I was totally wrong.
This book provided many hours of the "I just could not put it down" minutes. It was fascinating how the author wove a sto ...more
Me this entire book:
Hi, my name is Hayley and I’m obsessed with murder, especially serial killers. I listen to a murder podcast while I eat breakfast. It’s my thing. I also love super powers. SO yay for a book that combines the two!
Except this book SUCKED! My god, it took me almost a month to finish this. I seriously dreaded listening to it every morning, it was so bad. One day my roommate walked in and asked why I was listening to a telephone operator. So, yeah, in case you are wondering the na ...more
