This was my first foray into reading Anne Carey, I never read the Eve trilogy and this synopsis intrigued me with its mystery/thriller elements. Blackbird is one of those stories which has you as confused as the main character for the entirety of the story and its a breath of… Read more »

Review: Ghost House, Alexandra Adornetto

I’ve not read anything else by Alexandra Adornetto but considering she’s 21 and this is her 7th published novel I was willing to give it a shot. Besides it’s been awhile since I’ve read a good creepy ghost story so I was excited to sink my teeth into this one…. Read more »

Review: Big Little Lies, Liane Moriarty

Oh what a decadent and dangerously addictive book this is! It is your every guilty pleasure between two covers. I warn you, you will not be able to put it down. Thanks to Liane Moriarty I lost hours of much needed sleep and woke up cranky but still wanting more… Read more »

Review: Eeny Meeny by M.J. Arlidge

I hadn’t read a crime novel in quite some time. When I was a teenager I gorged myself on James Patterson and it seemed to sate my ‘who-dunnit’ appetite for quite a long time. However, the plot of M.J. Arlidge’s Eeny Meeny seized my attention, and I found myself once… Read more »

Review: The Rithmatist, Brandon Sanderson

I have a confession to make – this is the first Brandon Sanderson book I’ve read (*prepares for excommunication from fantasy fans*). I do have a couple sitting on my shelves but I haven’t had much of a chance for epic fantasy lately! Enter The Rithmatist, with great reviews from… Read more »

Review: Save Yourself, Kelly Braffet

Review: Save Yourself, Kelly Braffet

Ok, so if you read the jacket blurb on this book it sounds like nothing much happens. I will try to sum it up without giving too much away. Patrick turns his alcoholic father in to the police after he is involved in a hit and run, killing a young… Read more »

Review: City of Dark Magic, Magnus Flyte

Review: City of Dark Magic, Magnus Flyte

Prague. Praha. The name actually meant “threshold”. Pollina had said the city was a portal between the life of the good and … the other. A city of dark magic, Alessandro had called it. Sarah Weston is a musicologist and scholar of Beethoven at a Boston college. She is surprised at an invitation to study some… Read more »
