Miranda Sings “Selp-Helf” Book Review:

It’s time for the haterz to back off! That’s right, self-proclaimed internet sensation Miranda Sings has released her step-by-step guide to
living a successful life, and that book is called “Selp-Helf”.

This humourous book manages to expertly retain the same voice and “talent” that Sings herself has on her wildly popular YouTube channel. Written
in the guise of Miranda by her creator and the woman who brings her to life, Colleen Evans, along with her brother Christopher Ballinger, this
book is a self help guide that takes her “Mirfandas” on a process to living life the “Miranda” way. Everything from love life with her baes,
to life hacks to making homemade “shampoo”, to the ins and outs of nailing a job interview, this book claims to have it all. What really sells
this book however is not necessarily the advice being told, but the hilarious voice that it’s told in and the huge attention to detail making this
look like the randomly put together book Miranda Sings would create.

From scrap-book styling pages to easily misspelled words, this book lives and breaths Miranda Sings. Catering to her loyal fanbase and creating
one of the more unique internet-generated books, Colleen and Chris have expertly put together a hilarious life and style guide that is sure to
keep fans and newcomers alike laughing and talking for years to come. It’s quite easy to see why this character has become so beloved and
recognized within the entertainment industry, (having recently garnered her own Netflix original series, Haters Back Off), for it speaks highly
of the creative force behind the internet industry’s leading creators. If you weren’t a fan before, you will be after reading this laugh riot
of a book, so be sure to pick up your copies of “Selp-Helf” by Miranda Sings today!

Never Smile At Strangers (Grand Trespass #1) by Jennifer Jaynes Review:

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author and Booklover Catlady Publicity in return for a fair and honest review.
Many thanks!

There is nothing more I as both an author and a reader enjoy more than a compelling first entrance into a riveting thriller series. That’s
exactly what I got when I read the first book in the Grand Trespass series by author Jennifer Jaynes, titled “Never Smile At Strangers”, and the
title says it all as this over 300-page novel takes readers on a heart-pounding journey to discover a chilling truth that runs deep into the
town of Grand Trespass.

This novel takes readers into the lives of several citizens of the town of Grand Trespass, Louisiana, as a young girl suddenly goes missing. Soon
a desperate search is underway, but when more of the townspeople begin to go missing, the citizens begin to question one another, realizing that
they may not know those closest to them as well as they previously thought. Meanwhile an unhinged, demented serial killer is living among them,
and his deep-seated fear and obsession of women is more complicated four years after his mother’s death, in which he has had to take care of
his disturbed sister.

The twists and turns in this novel made it such an intriguing read. The characters were compelling and fully developed while the plot took so
many fascinating paths that it made the final reveal all the more captivating. What was really fascinating was the heavy emphasis on both the
cultural aspects of a small Southern town mixed with the deep psychological issues most people face, from the anxiety and depression that comes
from loss to the more violent and scary tendencies of a killer’s mind. Broaching the subject of mental health is also a great way to get a
conversation started, and made the book that much more enticing. It’s no wonder this book made the USA Today bestseller list, and has made
this a must read series for me. Make sure to check out Never Smile At Strangers (Grand Trespass #1) by Jennifer Jaynes today!

Saint Odd by Dean Koontz Review

The final adventure of everyone’s favorite fry cook who can see the dead has arrived in Dean Koontz final Odd Thomas entry, Saint Odd. The story
finds our hero, Odd Thomas, returning to his home of Pico Mundo. Yet this isn’t a happy reunion, but a mission to save his home and the people
he loves in the town, as a powerful cult has set it’s sights on the city, and the destruction they plan to unleash can only be stopped with the
help of Odd. Having faced and overcome the cultists before, he knows the power they wield and the chaos they are capable of sowing, and so he
must gather his strength and will to save the town one final time, even if it means sacrificing himself as well.

The book is a beautiful story artfully captured to detail the final Odd Thomas adventure. What stands out is the fact that Mr. Koontz has included
throwbacks to the series with characters established throughout the entire book collection, and yet gives the story fresh life by exploring the
mental state of our hero after years battling uncounted evil in all its forms. The fast-pace of the story makes the story fly by, and yet you
can’t help but reminisce during certain moments in the story about the deep emotional bonds between Odd and the friends he’s made. This is a book
made for character development, and fans of the series will love the direction Odd’s character takes throughout the novel.

What will Odd Thomas do in this final adventure? You can find out by picking up your copy of Saint Odd today! This is one of my top books of 2015,
and I feel satisfied that this final entry gave the Odd Thomas series a satisfying conclusion.

Bled by Eddie Slain Review

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author and Booklover Catlady Publicity in return for a fair and honest review.
Many thanks!

It’s not often that a book or story chills me to my very core. I’ve read some incredibly scary stories and had goosebumps left in its wake. Yet
Bled by Eddie Slain left me shivering with uncomfortable tension and artfully sculpted terror.

Bled is a crime thriller/serial killer tale that takes place during the holidays. Cassie is a young woman caught in a deadly game, where sex
and violence often become intertwined. In Charleston, Illinois, Cassie and Frank engage in a bloody tryst, leaving Frank to limp away battered
and angry. Needing a change of view and to get away from a destructive relationship, Cassie flies to Italy, where she falls for a new stranger
who lights a fire in her heart. Yet the violence and pain of her past quickly catch up to her, and she is left to fight for not only her life,
but the life of her new lover.

Now this is definitely a book I would recommend for adults who can handle sexually descriptive scenes. The horror of death and murder are easily
combined with the sensuous and dangerous exploits of the characters, and the characters are well developed. The descriptive nature of the scenes
and the settings make the book really come to life, playing like a film in the mind. This is a truly horror filled novel, and not only is there
a great twist ending, but it brings to life some truly dark characters that I’ve seldom read before. If you enjoy graphic, truly chilling stories,
then Bled by Eddie Slain is the book for you!
