After reading Ruth Ware’s first novel “in a dark, dark wood” I fell in love with her writing style and immediately pre-ordered this one, even though I didn’t read the blurb about it.

The blurb:

In this tightly wound, enthralling story reminiscent of Agatha Christie’s works, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and terrifying nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong…

After reading this, it has made me very excited to get to this one. And a little extra excited since I will be going on a cruise in the spring.

Now the only question I ask myself, do I read this now or save it and read it on my cruise???

By the way, the dusk jacket is fricken amazing!

The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone

Happy Pub Day to Ezekiel Boone’s “The Hatching”

The Hatching USA cover

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC and get the chance to read this book back in February. The first thing I need to mention, is I hate spiders. HATE them! Doesn’t matter how small or large they are, I am an equal opportunity spider hater.

I thought this book would scare the crap out me. But, I made my through it, with lots of cringing though. And a few panic attacks here and there. It’s like Arachnophobia on steroids.

Even if you hate and are afraid of spiders, I would still highly recommend checking out “The Hatching” because it is an excellent read.

The blurb:

An astonishingly inventive and terrifying debut novel about the emergence of an ancient species, dormant for over a thousand years, and now on the march.

Deep in the jungle of Peru, where so much remains unknown, a black, skittering mass devours an American tourist whole. Thousands of miles away, an FBI agent investigates a fatal plane crash in Minneapolis and makes a gruesome discovery. Unusual seismic patterns register in a Kanpur, India earthquake lab, confounding the scientists there. During the same week, the Chinese government “accidentally” drops a nuclear bomb in an isolated region of its own country. As these incidents begin to sweep the globe, a mysterious package from South America arrives at a Washington, D.C. laboratory. Something wants out.

The world is on the brink of an apocalyptic disaster. An ancient species, long dormant, is now very much awake.
