I loved The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind, and if you enjoy quirky humor, sci-fi, and fantasy, you'll enjoy this one too!
Definitely my favorite in the trilogy. It brings back the idea of a creepy and disturbing villain from the first two novels, but it adds a paranormal element true to King novels but lacking from EoW's predecessors.
Not going to lie, I shed a tear when it was all said and done. I'm sad it's over, but grateful to have been a part of the journey.
3.5 Stars. A talented voice meets an intriguing premise but drags through verbose scenes in order to deliver a sequel(s).
Finders Keepers is a great novel but it's a HUGE departure from Mr. Mercedes. Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed this one front to back!
I just can't like this book. It did too much with so little. The prose drones on, the twists are too far fetched and none of the characters seem genuine (in the worst possible way). I recommend staying away from this one.
The Guest List was a fan favorite in 2020 with a lot of high recommendations. However, I believe that's thanks to marketing and not the story itself. This whodunnit is a bit lackluster, and will leave many readers feeling shorted.
Imagine a non-magical Dolores Umbridge. . . She lives in a small town, where she's burned every bridge. Who can the lone detective even rule out? Oh did I mention that detective is her nephew...

Fantasies are fairly prevalent on Vella right now, but Barry K. Gregory's "A Thing Immortal" is one of the first 'Dark Fantasies' that I've come across, and it makes for an original and engaging read.
