I picked this one up on a birthday book buying spree because I absolutely love escape rooms and I've been on a huge middle-grade horror and thriller kick lately. I love the cover, it's very eye-catching and beautiful. Unfortunately, I wasn't a huge fan of this book, but it hasn't dented my love for the genre and I do want to try more from Christopher Edge.
I was auto-approved for this one and I impulsively accepted it because I liked the idea of a story from the perspective of a crime scene cleaner. That is what this book is, but it's also very much not. I could never have predicted the way that this book turned out and I loved every page-turning moment of it.
I don’t know what I was expecting from this book, but it wasn’t what I got. What I got was an amazing, light-hearted and fun read that was like reading a bubblegum pop song. I loved every second of it. Even during the tense moments of this book, it stayed hilarious and the tone has me absolutely obsessed with this book. I can’t wait to clear some more of my TBR so I have an excuse to buy more of Scalzi’s work after reading this one.
I'm literally obsessed with this book. I don't know what else I can possibly say as an introduction but that this fulfilled all of my favourite tropes: monstrous characters, hate-to-love, betrayal, blood magic, death matches. Rating: 5 stars
I insta-buy Karen McManus' books as a matter of course now so when I got my hands on an early review copy of YOU'LL BE THE DEATH OF ME I was so excited. I've never seen Ferris Bueller, but that didn't stop this rocketing up to be my favourite McManus thriller as I read it in one sitting. Rating: 5 stars.
This was my first Riley Sager book and as soon as I finished I put holds on the others at my library because I just had to read more of his clever, thrilling writing and incredible twists. I ended up liking Final Girls even more but this was a fantastic introduction to Riley Sager's writing. Rating: 4 stars.
I'm a complete sucker for a YA thriller, and I loved the premise of this book. It was, in the end, very different from what I expected. And that's the best way for a thriller to be! This book will take you on a ride and I can't wait to read more from this fantastic thriller writer! Rating: 4 stars!
I loooooove Kat Ellis's writing! I reviewed Harrow Lake for the blog tour last year and I shouted about it for months after. Wicked Little Deeds, out 5th August 2021, gave me exactly the same level of thrillery joy! I adored it, reading the majority of it in one sitting, and I can't wait to see more from Kat. Rating: 5 stars!
I adored Kalynn Bayron's debut, CINDERELLA IS DEAD, and so I had to request THIS POISON HEART when I saw that gorgeous cover. If you like Black girl magic, Little Shop of Horrors and gothic atmospheres, this is the perfect book. Rating: 5 stars!
This YA thriller releases in a couple of weeks, and it's one to look out for if you enjoy books like Karen M. McManus's One of Us is Lying series or A Good Girl's Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson. The Last Girl is also publishing in the US under 'The Mary Shelley Club', a title I love just as much! Rating: 4 stars!
