BOOK REVIEW: The Overnight Guest by Heather Gudenkauf

The Overnight Guest by Heather Gudenkauf πŸ™ΆTrue crime writer Wylie Lark doesn’t mind being snowed in at the isolated farmhouse where she’s retreated to write her new book. A cozy fire, complete silence. It would be perfect, if not for the fact that decades earlier, at this very house, two people were murdered in cold blood and a girl disappeared without a trace.  As the storm worsens, Wylie finds herself trapped inside the house, haunted by the secrets contained within its walls—haunted by secrets of her own. Then she discovers a small child in the snow just outside. After bringing the child inside for warmth and safety, she begins to search for answers. But soon it becomes clear that the farmhouse isn’t as isolated as she thought, and someone is willing to do anything to find them.πŸ™· My Rating: 🌟🌟/5 I would say that this book started off okay. It's dark and atmospheric, just the way I like my thrillers. Halfway through however, I started losing interest and almost DNFe

BOOK REVIEW UPDATE: Hurt by Tabitha Suzuma

  Hurt by Tabitha Suzuma πŸ™ΆAt seventeen, Matheo Walsh is Britain’s most promising diving champion. He is wealthy, popular - and there's Lola, the girlfriend of his dreams. But then there was that weekend. A weekend he cannot bring himself to remember. All he knows is that what happened has changed him. MathΓ©o is faced with the most devastating choice of his life. Keep his secret, and put those closest to him in terrible danger. Or confess, and lose Lola for ever.πŸ™· My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟/5 Tabitha Suzuma tends to gravitate toward taboo and sensitive subject matter. Often heart-breaking and hauntingly sad, her stories aren't always the easiest to take in. When I finished reading Forbidden, I remember crying myself to sleep and then feeling down and empty for the next several days. I felt that way with Hurt too, however I have to agree with the growing consensus that Forbidden is the better novel. That said, I think Hurt is beautifully written. Lots of pretty words it's like rea

But Cinder is a breath of fresh air. I love, love this book! I put off rea

As a long-time Coinbase user, I received an alarming email with the subject "An Important Message Regarding Your Coinbase Account." The email informed me that Coinbase would be discontinuing all services to my account and that I had until September 25th, 2023, to withdraw my funds. Confused and frustrated, I discovered that many other users were facing the same situation.

Plug and Socket Types around the World: Why You Need a Universal Travel Adapter

  Are you planning an international trip? Exciting! But before you go, it’s important to remember that not all countries use the same electrical outlet plugs. In fact, there are currently 15 types of domestic electrical outlet plugs in use worldwide, each of which has been assigned a letter by the US Department of Commerce International Trade Administration (ITA), starting with A and moving through the alphabet. These letters are completely arbitrary and don’t actually mandate anything. Different regions of the world use different plug shapes and sizes, so you’ll want to choose the correct one for the country you’re visiting. For example, most of Europe uses one type, but Italy and Switzerland each use something different. Don’t worry though, there are many options available to help you stay connected and charged up while you travel. First things first, always remember to bring a Universal Travel Adapter.
