The Book Worm Chronicles

A look into the world of Bookworms

Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by John Douglas & Mark Olshaker

indexOverall rating: 5/5

After watching the show Mindhunter on Netflix,I was intrigued when I found out it was based on a book and knew that I wanted to read it. I wasn’t really sure what to expect before I started reading, but this book did not disappoint me.

John Douglas tells the story of his career as one of the first FBI profilers, who helped come up important phrases such as signative to explain a criminals actions, and the many cases that he was involved in during that time. Douglas helped put a number of high profile killers behind bars and interviewed some of the most sadistic and notorious murderers to understand their motives from behind bars.

Waking the Witch by Kelley Armstrong

41yBPTci2PLOverall rating: 4/5

The end is finally in sight for the Women of the Otherworld series! Waking the Witch is the eleventh book in the series, and is one of the first ones I really liked that didn’t focus on the werewolves. The last two books in the series are new to me, and I’m very interested in seeing how Kelley Armstrong chose to end the series.

After spending years as an executive assistant at Cortez-Winterbourne Investigations, Savannah Levine finally gets the chance to prove herself as an investigator when she is left in charge and is given a case by another supernatural and private investigator, Jesse Aanes. There have been a string of murders in a small town named Columbus, and there may be a link to the supernatural that Savannah is in charge of looking into.

Veronica Mars: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas & Jennifer Graham

Thousand-dollar-tan-lineOverall rating: 3/5

I was excited to hear about the Veronica Mars book series because a friend introduced me to the show and I couldn’t help but love Veronica. She’s a highly relatable female lead, who has her own struggles and limitations that remind us that she is only human, and kicks ass no matter where she goes.

A continuation of the television series and the movie of Veronica Mars, The Thousand-dollar Tan Line has Veronica back in Neptune, California as a private investigator and running Mars Investigations while her Father, Keith, is on the mend. The book picks up during Spring Break in Neptune, where the underage coeds flawk to the beach and bars to party their hearts out, and the locals patiently wait for the Spring breaks to be over.

Dark Side of the Moon by Sherrilyn Kenyon

84146Overall rating: 4/5

FINALLY got my first book read of 2018!

I feel like it took me way too long, and am focusing on one of my resolutions to read more in the new year.

I started my year off Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series, and have reread Dark Side of the Moon. This was actually one of the first books I read in the series, and I always enjoy rereading it whenever I get the chance.

Book Pledge of 2018


One of the two places I keep track of my pledges every year:

With the New Year upon us, it is time for book worms and readers alike to set a new book pledge! This is one of my favourite times of the year, because I’m able to look back on the books I read and makes me think about what books I want to read in the new year.

Happy Holidays!

harry-potterWith Christmas and New Years just around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to wish all of my fellow Bookworms a very happy and safe holiday season!

Merry Christmas!

Happy Hannukah!

Happy Winter Solstice!

A joyous Kwanzaa!

Happy New Year!

The holidays have been a very busy time for me this year, and I also didn’t get to enjoy as much reading this year as I would have liked! My one and only New Years resolution will be to make time to read more, and to open up more space on my shelf to buy even more books! In a little while, I will post my top five books of 2017, and discuss my reading pledge for 2018.

What are some holidays traditions do you do during the holidays? Let me know in the comments!

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

handmaidOverall rating: 4/5

After I watched the television adaption of Margaret Atwood’s, The Handmaid’s Tale, I became very interested in her novel and bought it as soon as I could. The popular topic of discussion surrounding The Handmaid’s Tale is the relevance that it has in the states, and it was alarming to me how much I agreed with the sentiment.

The novel tells the story of Offred, who fans have assumed her real name was June, a Handmaid in the States where a totalitarian, Christian theonomy has overthrown the government. The Handmaid’s are women who are still fertile, as something occurred to cause men and women to become sterile, and those in power round them up like cattle and give them to important men and their wives in hopes that the man knocks her up within a couple of years.

Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong

FrostbittenbyKelleyArmstrongOverall rating: 4/5

Frostbitten, the 10th book in the Women of the Otherworld series, finds our favourite female werewolf, Elena Michaels, attempting to track down an Australian mutt, Reese Williams, who may have gotten mixed up with some bad wolves and her search leads her Anchorage, Alaska. With only three books in the main series remaining, I’m excited and sad to almost be finished this series.

After meeting back up with Clay after some time apart, they finally manage to grab Reese after he had a run in with some other wolves and send him off to stay with the Sorrentinos. Clay and Elena stay behind to try to address the issue of these other werewolves, and run into a father and son, Denis and Joey Stillwell, who used to be a part of the Pack. Joey sends Elena and Clay away when they try to ask about the mutts in Anchorage, and the pair come across Denis in a cabin where he has been tortured and killed by the mutts.

Unleash the Night by Sherrilynn Kenyon

84139Overall rating: 3/5

While attempting to deal with the assumed death of her friend, Marguerite (Maggie) Goudeau, visits one of Nick Gautier’s old haunts, the bar known as Sanctuary. While there with a few pretentious ‘friends’, Maggie meets one of Nick’s former friends, Wren Tigarian, who calls Sanctuary his home.  Wren feels an immediate connection to Maggie, and goes against everything in his world to form a relationship with her.

Maggie has no idea that Sanctuary is just that for Were Hunters, humans that can turn into animals and animals who can turn into humans, and that Wren is a rare breed known as tigard. Wren’s people attempt to stay as far away from humans as possible, though Wren cannot seem to shake his attraction to Maggie.
