April Book Wrap Up

I’ve been seeing book wrap ups all over the web, so I decided to join the club. This month has been pretty productive, especially considering I had my final exams in seven subjects (and passed them all!). I somehow managed to read 8 books in between my studying and am happy to report that I liked almost all of them.

I won’t go into depth about the books, but I’ll give you my rating and some quick thoughts on them. To read the full reviews click on the title.

Lets get started!

Book Review- Resthaven

e-Book Cover (Resthaven)

The last thing Kaylee wants to do is participate in a childish scavenger hunt–especially inside the abandoned retirement home on the edge of town. When she finds a bruised, deaf boy hiding inside one of the rooms, she vows to lead him to safety . . . only to discover the front doors are now padlocked, and her friends are nowhere to be found. Kaylee is about to learn that not everything that goes ‘bump in the night’ is imaginary, and sometimes there are worse things to fear than ghosts.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Resthaven, as it’s not the type of book I usually go for. However, when Erik asked me to review it for him, I said yes. Something about the first chapter had me hooked, and I wanted to read more.

I am happy to report that I liked the book. It was well written, and the characters were realistic and relatable. Throughout the book you learn about each character’s back story, and it really helps to bring the book to life.

One thing I really enjoyed was the detail in the book. I could imagine Kaylee and her “friends” entering Resthaven and running around its halls. I could feel my heart pounding when they got locked inside. Erik Therme brought all of his characters and settings to life in an enthralling way.

Another thing that I loved was how unpredictable the plot was. Every twist was a surprise. The whole book kept me on the edge of my seat. This is the kind of book I could imagine as a movie (the kind that would be terrifying and amazing).

The only part of the book that didn’t sit right with me was the ending. I wish there was a little more explanation at the end. However, the ending did tie up the loose ends, so I was satisfied.

I’m going to give Resthaven four out of five hearts.

If you love thrillers and suspense, I definitely recommend this book for you!
