I'm a huge Karen M. McManus fan, and I reviewed One of Us is Lying here and One of Us is Next here.

I'm glad it was so early in the year so I can get my hands … Continue reading One of Us is Next, by Karen McManus (Review)
I guess we're almost friends now, or as friendly as you can get when you're not one hundred percent sure the other person isn't framing you for murder. Less than a week until the release of One of Us is Next so I just had to reread One of Us is Lying to catch myself … Continue reading One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus (Review)

Again and again it sounded, the whole air throbbing with it, strident, wild and menacing.” Rating: 2.5 stars I ummed and ahhed about what to rate this … Continue reading The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Arthur Conan Doyle (Review)
