Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her. The cherry on top is when Caroline finds out her father is not doing well and has to go home to New Jersey to help out. She finds one thing she didn't expect . . . true love. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline from NetGalley for free in exchange for my honest review.  The synopsis of this book was intriguing, and I absolutely love baseball, so I couldn't wait to dig in to this story. Unfortunately, the story started off a bit slow and continued to be slow at points throughout the book. The slowness of the plot made it difficult to stay interested in the characters and their fate.  At one point, I didn't really care if I finished the story or not. With that being said, I'm glad I stuck with the book because the last 15% of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline started to

Book Review: The Silent Scream (Nightmare Hall, #1) by Diane Hoh

The Silent Scream (Nightmare Hall, #1) by Diane Hoh opens with six students arriving at Nightingale Hall dubbed Nightmare Hall, which is their off campus dorm at Salem University. After the students learn the deep, dark secret that another student committed suicide in the dorm, odd things begin happening.

Diane Hoh was a very popular author in the 1990's with a slew of books to her name. It seems as though she simply vanished into thin air as I haven't heard of any new books written by her. I'll have to look into what happened to her and why she hasn't continued writing, or if she has continued writing, why I haven't heard of those books.

In my attempt to reread my way through my childhood, I picked up The Silent Scream (Nightmare Hall, #1) by Diane Hoh. Since this wasn't a book that I reread a ton as a kid, I really didn't remember too much about the book with a couple of exceptions, and those parts that I did remember, I only remembered when I started reading those sections. So, it was like reading the book for the first time again, and it gave me all the feels and didn't disappoint.

Diane Hoh did a great job on throwing suspicion on several different characters throughout the book on who the "bad guy" was. Being an adult, I thought I knew who it was from the get go, but when the author put out the other clues, I did doubt myself a bit and let myself be led astray. The great thing about this book is that everything was resolved by the end of the book.

The Silent Scream was a compelling read and fast paced. It could easily be read in two or three hours, even by the target audience. With that being said, every time I sat down to read, I was really tired and only got fifty or so pages read at a time, and it took me a few days to finish. I gave it five out of five stars, and even though it was written in the 1990's, kids today would enjoy this book and the series.

If you enjoyed The Silent Scream (Nightmare Hall, #1) by Diane Hoh, then you would enjoy Trick or Treat by Richie Tankersly Cusick.
