Hey guys! I have been on a hiatus since February 2021. I can’t believe I haven’t posted in that long. In 2021 I ended up starting a new job. It was a new adjustment for me. I didn’t have the energy to blog and I also wasn’t reading as much. Since then, I have started another new job. I feel it gives me the opportunity to write blog posts. I don’t know how often I’ll be posting but I’m just happy to be back. I’ve been thinking about writing a post for a while now. I have to say though, I’m very rusty at writing reviews, so please bare with me. Anyway, I decided to start my first blog post off with my favorite reads of 2022. So let’s dive in!

Sometimes things just slip through the cracks. So here are some of my most anticipated books of 2022 that are on my radar. Let’s dive in!

Book Review: Home Before Dark By Riley Sager
Home Before Dark By Riley Sager
Genre: Thriller, Horror, Mystery, Fiction, Adult, Suspense, Adult Fiction
Pages: 409 pages
Publication Date: June 30th 2020
Publisher: Dutton Books

Synopsis: What was it like? Living in that house.
Maggie Holt is used to such questions. Twenty-five years ago, she and her parents, Ewan and Jess, moved into Baneberry Hall, a rambling Victorian estate in the Vermont woods. They spent three weeks there before fleeing in the dead of night, an ordeal Ewan later recounted in a nonfiction book called House of Horrors. His tale of ghostly happenings and encounters with malevolent spirits became a worldwide phenomenon, rivaling The Amityville Horror in popularity—and skepticism.
Today, Maggie is a restorer of old homes and too young to remember any of the events mentioned in her father’s book. But she also doesn’t believe a word of it. Ghosts, after all, don’t exist. When Maggie inherits Baneberry Hall after her father’s death, she returns to renovate the place to prepare it for sale. But her homecoming is anything but warm. People from the past, chronicled in House of Horrors, lurk in the shadows. And locals aren’t thrilled that their small town has been made infamous thanks to Maggie’s father. Even more unnerving is Baneberry Hall itself—a place filled with relics from another era that hint at a history of dark deeds. As Maggie experiences strange occurrences straight out of her father’s book, she starts to believe that what he wrote was more fact than fiction.
In the latest thriller from New York Times bestseller Riley Sager, a woman returns to the house made famous by her father’s bestselling horror memoir. Is the place really haunted by evil forces, as her father claimed? Or are there more earthbound—and dangerous—secrets hidden within its walls?
