‘The Premonition at Wither Farm’ is a chilling fall read
By Ella Smith
As the season of pumpkin spice lattes, flannel and leaves arrived, so did the season of chilling reads. Jaime Jo Wright has been one of my favorite authors for a while now, partially due to her ability to write chilling scenes that remain in your memory long after the last chapter.
Her latest book “The Premonition as Withers Farm” does not disappoint with a plethora of haunting descriptions. The book has dueling timelines - one in the early nineteen hundreds and ...
‘Ticket To Paradise’ is a blissful getaway
By Samuel M Acosta
When I originally saw the trailer for “Ticket to Paradise”, it just seemed to be like every other low-quality rom-com that has come out in recent years.
