Book Review - Broken Summer

Broken SummerBroken Summer by Jung-Myung Lee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quick read. If you pick this up, it was translated from Korean into English, so I do feel some things may come across a little differently with translation. I rated with some grace in light of that.

It’s a bit of a slow paced psychological thriller. Everything went wrong after a mistake made one summer, 20 years ago. Until everything went right. Only to fall apart again. There’s scandal, murder, cover up and breakdowns.

Book Review - Just Like Home by Sarah Gailey

Just Like HomeJust Like Home by Sarah Gailey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Creepy haunted house. Serial killer. Dysfunctional family. No true heroes.

The thing with horror is it’s unsettling. This is unsettling. There are What the actual F moments. Some disturbing happenings. With it being a dark story, it’s hard sometimes to rate it high. Because it makes you uncomfortable. But that’s what it’s supposed to do. So here I am having just finished this book, sitting in my comfy reading corner and thinking of how my blanket might pull off me in my sleep. Or thinking of cold grease when I wash my hands. That’s what makes a good horror book in my opinion. Something that can haunt your regular day to day.

This was 3.5 rounded up to 4. I read this with Once Upon A Book Club which made it much more immersive. There were handwritten notes!!
