A boy without a voice.
A teen without a home.
A man without hope. 
Kian knows the way his life is headed will be the death of him. It doesn’t matter how many criminals he catches for Gordon's Bounty Detective Agency or how deep he tries to fall into the bottle – those eyes haunt him. All it took was one whisper of bad advice, one wrong choice, one mistake, to wipe out years of confidence he had struggled to build while living on his Grandmother’s farm. Then Kian found the box of files overflowing with unsolved crimes. Those cold cases jolted his soul from its vegetative state and awakened his resolve. Kian knew those cases were meant for him to solve, but the last thing he expected to find within a few wrinkled folders was his ultimate redemption.

When Nathan Hamilton was accused of killing Landy Connor just weeks before their college graduation, he lost everything—his friends, his reputation, and the love of his life, Tenile Barnes. For ten long years, the murder has remained unsolved, nothing but false leads and dead ends. Desperate to bring Landy’s killer to justice and win back Tenile’s heart, Nathan starts his own investigation. But the first break in the case comes at a high price: Landy’s old roommate Nicole is kidnapped... possibly by the same person who killed Landy.  
Nathan and his old friends comb through every memory, every photograph, and every trace of evidence for clues about who killed Landy then and who has taken Nicole now. As they separate fact from vicious rumor and piece together what really happened that night, they discover that the truth is darker and more twisted than they ever imagined. The killer is close, waiting in the shadows, ready to strike again. 
In the shocking sequel to Rumors, will the friends finally reveal Landy’s killer . . . or will Nicole be the next to fall?

[WEEKLY MUSING] 6 Tips on Finding Out Mystery Suspects

...because Queen of Mystery

If you've been following my blog for a few months now, you'd probably know that I'm a mystery and crime fiction reader (at least I hope you noticed that). My addiction with crime fiction and mystery thrillers, in general, started when I came across Robert Galbraith's The Cuckoo's Calling. It was a crazy attempt since crime fiction was so out of  my comfort zone then.

Anyway, after reading a decent amount of YA mysteries, mystery-thrillers, crime fictions, and cozy mysteries, I came up with this crazy list.

[WEEKEND READS] I'm a Procrastinating Night Person


I had a pretty stressful week. I ended up sleeping after school, waking up at 11PM or 12MN, THEN working on whatever project I was supposed to work on. Generally, I think this happened because I'm a procrastinating night person. Yup, perfectly reason.

But really, I need to work on my time management. Like today, I pretty much failed at that when I woke up at 8AM and get up at 10AM. Just how much time did I waste? Aside from that instead of actually working on my school homework (which is to be submitted tonight), I plainly read through How (Not) to Find a Boyfriend by Allyson Valentine. Now... Now I'm still procrastinating.
UnSouled (Unwind #3) | Neal Shusterman
Finally finished it last Thursday!! There were so many things going on and a few more characters introduced. I still don't feel confused although I have to admit that the number of events going on seems overwhelming at some point. But the ending and where everybody is at was just so great. Review will definitely be up this week!

[REVIEW] The Standout

Series: A Robin Bricker Novel
Laurel Osterkamp
 adult, mystery, contemporary
 November 10, 2015
Publisher: Kindle Press
Purchase: Amazon

First Robin gets the email with its simple demand: dump your fiancé or else. Then someone puts up the slanderous Rotten Robin Website that threatens to crush her chances to win The Standout, a ballet-themed, fashion reality show. Surrounded by backstabbing co-contestants and haunted by mysterious ghosts from her past, Robin can't trust anyone, including herself. Her only allies are Zelda, a ballerina and model, and her older brother Ted, both of whom have ghosts and secrets of their own.

The Standout is a psychological thriller about love and betrayal, life and death, tall buildings, and finding the courage to jump.
