The imagery makes the experience magical. If only the story and acting was up to par with the art itself then I believe the movie would have surpassed expectations and even receive more praise then the last four films.

for her, he’d fight the devil himself - Snifter of Death (Bloodstone Series, #2) by Chris Karlsen

"This is an intriguing mystery that shows us just how difficult it was for Victorian police to solve crimes with the limited means they had.

A very entertaining read. " - Petula, Goodreads

Short and entertaining - Punk by Lex Grootelaar

This coming-of-age story, although set in the 90's, is still very relevant to today. It explores a quest for God without religion. Written with bursts of stream-of-consciousness and first-person narrative, “Punk” is simultaneously an urban existential fiction and a mystery novel.

her mysterious new world - Beyond Death (Afterlife #1) by Deb McEwan

I’m looking forward to discovering what happens to Claire and the others in book two – highly recommended. " - Jackie, Goodreads

What makes you believe a lie? - When the Sky Falls by Joseph Bendoski

Gideon and Daryn display a powerful chemistry from their very first meeting, while the personality conflicts between Gideon and his fellow horsemen keep this adventure both intense and humorous."―RT Book Reviews, Top Pick!
