disclaimer – i received an e-galley of this novel from caelstone press in exchange for an honest review.

i wanted to love henry’s re-entry. it sounded like an interesting story, the protagonist waking up in a strange place and then embarking on a voyage both metaphorical and real. along the way he’s learning about who he is versus who he thinks he is, reconciling how he’s lived his life with why…

the most terrifying movie i’ve ever watched was open water. the whole idea of being stranded in the middle of the ocean, knowing there is nothing you can do to save yourself. i was curled in a ball through the whole movie and had nightmares about it all night. literally. ALL night.

disclaimer – i received an e-galley of this novel from gallery books in exchange for an honest review.

i started the butcher around one in the morning, expecting to read a chapter or so and then pick it up the next day. i ended up staying up until 5:30 a.m. so that i could finish it and that isn’t something that happens to me very often.

there’s really no “mystery” to this novel. jennifer hillier
