Describe one under appreciated book EVERYONE should read
It’s so difficult for me to narrow down a list, since I have a million books in my head screaming at me to pick them. But I really want to highlight a self-published author because they need the most love. My pick is RECKONING by Molly H. Hall. You can read my review of it HERE. On July 29th, I’ll be reviewing the sequel….which I sadly haven’t started reading yet. Really need to get on that! I’m debating whether to re-read the first book. I think I will cause I loved it so much and I don’t want any confusion from me not remembering things when I read the sequel.
”They say the truth can set you free. I found out it can kill you.”
Seventeen-year-old Kat Matheson has never revealed the dark secret that sets her apart from everyone else: She can see and hear the dead. Until now, she has been able to ignore the strange apparitions and whispering voices. But it may not be that simple anymore. Haunted by eerie visions and increasingly frightening nightmares, Kat begins to fear she may be the target of a dark and ominous force from beyond the grave. Complicating matters is the arrival of her new neighbor, a young man she instinctively distrusts but is inexplicably drawn to. Gorgeous and mysterious, he seems to hold a disturbing knowledge of her long-held secrets.
As she desperately tries to maintain control, events take an unexpected and violent turn. Discovering that nothing is what it seems and that her psychic abilities may involve far more than just communing with the dead, Kat may be forced to confront her worst fears and the powerful curse that controls her destiny.
Top 5 reasons to read RECKONING
1) You can’t tell it is self-published. The editing, pacing, writing, and characters are polished.
2) It is a paranormal romance, but there are sections that are downright creepy. The author does a superb job making Kat’s nightmares feel real. They almost gave me nightmares. And then there’s the creepy neighbor and the fact that she knows someone follows her.
3) Her creepy neighbor reminds me of Hannibal Lector. Charming, but you can’t help but think he wants to put your liver in a stew.
4) The other guy Rick, you’ll like. It’s not douchebag vs nice guy. It’s creepy stalker that you know knows something vs normal guy that has secretly been in love with her for years.
5) The ending was intense. Just WOW! That’s the reason I love self and indie pubs…you can’t get away with that kind of ending with a traditional publisher.
My top five reasons seem horribly pathetic, but it truly is a good book. What book did you pick?
