Okay. Okay, I didn’t love this book. At a push I’m not entirely sure whether I liked this book or not. It really says something that I came back to review this and I couldn’t remember a thing about what happened. It’s a good thing I’d written out notes after finishing it, or I don’t think I’d have had much to say here. It just wasn’t memorable enough for me to have any strong feelings about this book.
REVIEW | Mindwalker | Kate Dylan
I am absolutely obsessed with this book. I honestly requested it solely because I kept seeing all these neon pictures on my feed and I was intrigued by the cover, but it ended up being an incredible read that I marathoned in one sitting. I listened to the audiobook, but I definitely want to get a physical copy for a reread soon.
REVIEW | All the Wicked Games | Lauren North
I requested this one on a total whim because I liked the cover and I've been really enjoying thrillers this year. I'm really glad that I did because ALL THE WICKED GAMES pushed every single one of my buttons and had me reading in a frenzy to try and finish the story and get answers.
REVIEW | Just Like Home | Sarah Gailey
Horror thrillers with a pretty pink cover. This book was made for me and Andee and I absolutely adored it. Every book I read from Sarah Gailey is better than the one before and I can't wait to see what they come up with next.
REVIEW | Escape Room | Christopher Edge
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.
REVIEW | The Undiscovered Deaths of Grace McGill | C.S. Robertson
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.
BLOG TOUR REVIEW | The Kaiju Preservation Society | John Scalzi
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.
REVIEW | All of Us Villains | Amanda Foody & Christine Lynn Herman
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
REVIEW | You’ll Be the Death of Me | Karen M. McManus
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.
REVIEW | Survive the Night | Riley Sager
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.
