I hear screams in my head.
I see blood on my hands.
When I look in the mirror I see a stranger.

How is it that I can remember bits and pieces of my life, but nothing of any importance and nothing that makes any sense? Everything is twisted and nothing is right. I’m choking with every breath I take, suffocating on the unknown.

Two days ago, everything changed. Two days ago, t

4 Stars!!


This was my second book by this author and while it was very different from the first one I really enjoyed it. Since I could tell reading the blurb that this book it will be a mindfuck I really had to read it since I love this kind of books. A psychological thriller, “Bury Me” will made you question everything you read, it will mess with your head, it will keep at the edge of your seat.

“Bury Me” tells the twisted story of Ravenna Duskin, a 18 years old girl who wakes up with no memory

Tara Sivec brought the disturbing and twisted in this novel and I’m in awe that she wrote this one. The writing was very strong and the plot was pretty big screen worthy. The story keeps a reader guessing as our heroine wakes up with shattered memories and oh yeah she lives in a closed down prison! Seriously, her parents run tours and they have living quarters upstairs it was super creepy.


The story is set in 1965 as Ravenna’s memories slowly come together and the po

What. The. Hell. Just. Happened?????

So I'm going to have to curse here so just beware.

This book was a total and complete mindfuck and I mean that in the best way possible.

I didn't even know Tara had this in her and I have read every single one of her books. This book is different, it's dark and it is sure as hell not romantic. But it's AMAZING.

This is one of the most unique story lines I have every read and the best part- you literally have to wait til the very end to find out what happened!!

“My name is Ravenna Duskin. I’m eighteen years old, I live in a prison, and I will find out the truth, even if it destroys everyone around me.”

Ravenna is eighteen and she lives in a prison (a historical building. She and her parents work and live there for years). She woke up from a two-day coma and she couldn’t remember much of her life. She woke up covered in bruises and scratches. Her parents told her who she is, what she likes and about her school and friends. But the thing is they

"My name is Ravenna Duskin. I'm eighteen years old, I life in a prison, and..."

She woke up with no memory. They told her who she was, what she liked, and how she should act. But it doesn't feel right. She doesn't feel like this girl everyone is telling her she's supposed to be. So who is she?

This was my first book by this author and I really had no idea what to expect going into it, but I can honestly say I was not expecting this. Bury Me was a very different type of book than I'm us

My reaction as soon as I finished the book...
It's quiet possible I'm still in shock and certainly not qualified to rate or review this book!

But I have to I'm dying to say this - Tara Sivec, YOU OFFICIALLY. BLEW. MY. MIND!!!


***4.5 prison stars***

Two reasons I picked up this book!
#1- Holy hell that blurb is already giving me the creeps *shudders*
#2- What in the world….Tara Sivec and dark book??!!!

I adore stories that keep me guessing until the end. I LOVE twists and turns, and I've even been known to enjoy the dark side of thrillers. BURY ME has all of that and more. I can honestly say, I read this awesome story in one day. Everything else had to wait. Tara had me questioning each character and even the story line until the final sentence. And oh! The Epilogue is classic! This stand alone thriller left me with the biggest smile on my face! It was a perfect ending!

I used to be scared of Tara Sivec because she was scary good. Scary talented. Scary amazing in multiple genres. Now I'm just scared of her.

I don't even know where to start on this review. Let's start with what we know about the story.....

.......well that was short. Let's start somewhere else.

Ravenna has a headache. She doesn't remember how she got it or the scratches on her arm. She knows her mother and father. But she knows she doesn't know them. Or like t

I can't decide on either a 3.5 or 3.75 Star Rating right now.

The story was good and unique, but I had a hard time connecting with any of the characters.

I got pissed off at the end and thought that the book wrapped up too quickly while the rest of the book went slow in parts.

Now, please don't hate me because I absolutely LOVE Ms Sivec's other series, and it may have been that I just wasn't in the mood to read a psychological thriller.

Please don't use this as a basis on whether or not to read this
Jenny Jo Weir
Although this is a good book, with a great story line and plot, it was seriously dark and twisted. I was not expecting that at all! The characters were also fantastic and this author is talented for sure, but it was all a little too evil for me and I had a hard time with the devious thoughts. I think this is more for young fans of Stephen King, which I am not, but if horror is more your genre, then this one might be for you.

UMMM . . . WHAT DID I JUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is no way this was brought to us by the same mind that wrote Seduction and Snacks, Burned and Ficher’s Light! Tara has been hiding this dark and twisted soul deep within and I honestly fear for the well being of her husband and children!

Two days ago something happened and now Ravenna Duskin is on the search for her memories and to find out who she really is.

At the start is was looking like 4-5 stars, but then the last third of the book fell apart.

I'm not going to say too much about this story, as it would be too hard without giving details away. I didn't know what to expect, given the vague blurb. I wasn't even sure what genre it was. There were elements of psychological thriller and horror, so if you're expecting another Tara Sivec contemporary romance, this isn't it!!!

Confession: I had no idea what this book was about when I dove in. It had Tara's name attached to it, so that was good enough for me. Not only do I think she's a great author, I think she's an amazing person, and one I'm proud to know.

Even if I happen to be a little afraid of her right now.

I'll skip the "what it's about" and get right to the feels I had while reading. Because holy F*CK, the feels! I went from confused to intrigued to creeped out. At one point, I literally had to put

4.5 stars!! I didn't know what I felt at the end of this one...I was just...kinda...numb! Where has this funny author gone? Where was the romantic Tara? She has either been watching too many crime shows or James Sivec needs to seriously watch his back!

It was palpable, it was gritty, it was suspenseful and it was a total mind fuck so Tara did what she set out to do and the writing was fantastic. I did see the twist coming though and for that I gave it a 4.5. (Full review to come)

I finished this one a few days ago and I've needed that time to process my thoughts on just how unique, impactful and powerful this book was. Tara Sivec has always been a fabulous writer, but this book....THIS BOOK.....Tara has weaved a psychological thriller unlike anything I've ever read! I literally read this entire story in one day, ignoring my piles of laundry and sink full of dishes. It's that fantastic!!!!

A dark and twisted psychological mindf*** read at its finest!

This book will be fully enjoyed if you dive in blindly like I did. So I'll just keep my review short and vague.

The story left me puzzled at first as Ravenna woke up with no memory of who she is. Snippets of memories she remembered every now and then doesn't help either. In fact, it only leaves me to more questions with no answers. Which to be honest is quite frustrating.

Tara truly killed it with this one! Woman, you are a genius. I was so lost and confused I didn't know what was up, what was down. I can tell you this... she HAS to write more stories like this!!! Dark, twisty, psychological goodness.

I flove a good psychological as much as the next gal, but she hit this one totally outta the ballpark.

I don't want to give anything away but, Ravenna an 18 year old wakes up from a head injury and everything is not what it seems.

Let me start off by saying this is NOT a love story. No love story entwined where the two will run off in the sunset holding hands. This is not full of rainbows and unicorns that will make you smile. Not. At. All.

What this story is is a dark thrilling mystery. It is pure torture. From the moment you start to read this book, you will be confused. You will insist on knowing what the heck is happening and why. Be patient young grasshopper, all good things come to those who wait. You will get some

What. Just. Happened?

Literally, as I was reading this I'm pretty sure, "What the fuck?" came out of my mouth at least once per chapter. I had a different theory every chapter, which may sound like complete madness, but with every page turn, the brilliant twists and turns just kept coming. I'd turn the page and think, "I've totally got this figured out." Nope. Not until the VERY last chapter, and then a GASP, my hand over my mouth shaking my head and then a SLEW of curse words.

Where do I even start with this one? It’s not that I have a lot to complain about, the truth is I was so consumed by how much I disliked the characters and how the book is written that I didn’t pay attention to other things like the plot, or the mystery or even the pace. I just couldn’t believe that this author would take a premise so promising and turn it into a shit storm. So let’s not delay the inevitable and let’s tackle the things that made me go: Hell to the

Ravenna ' s memories of her life are fractured and lost. Everything she is told she is does not feel right. Nothing is how it should be and no one will tell her the truth of what happened a couple nights ago, that left her injured and confused about reality.

The two people Ravenna should be able to trust whole heartedly, are the two casting the most lies.

Bury Me is my first Tara Sivec book. I know, I started with the darkest of them all! But that is me! Gimme dark and I’ll be a happy girl!

And after finishing it, what comes to my mind? “What the hell did I just read???” How did Tara Sivec come up with this story??? And the funny thing is how did my own mind come up with so many right theories about it??

This was amazing! Tense, gripping and mind blowing, it's a must read!

Ravenna Duskin is 18 and lives in an old prison. She wakes up one day with no memories, covered in scratches and with a head injury. Her parents fuss over her but won't answer her questions properly. They keep telling her she is a good girl, but why is she having these strange dreams, why does she feel like this isn't who she is?

When I first had the urge to DNF this I should have. The pace was slow. Some suspense would have done this book a lot of good. The ending was ridiculous. It was like something out of a cheesy soap opera. The only part of the book I liked was the beginning because that was the only part where Ravenna seemed innocent. I didn't give a shit about what had happened to her because she was a psychopath and obviously caused some of her own problems. None of the characters were likable. Except for one pe ...more
