The Housemaid is Watching by Freida McFadden book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
The Housemaid series is without a doubt one of the most popular thriller series out there. If you ever check the top-selling books on the Amazon Kindle store, one of the first two Housemaid books will inevitably be on there. So when The Housemaid is Watching was announced and I saw that it was going to be coming out in paperback on launch day, I pre-ordered it in almost every form you could (audiobook, kindle and paperback). And here are my thoughts... Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

Strange Sally Diamond by Liz Nugent book review

Strange Sally Diamond by Liz Nugent book review

Book reviews, Crime, Mystery, Thriller
I picked up Strange Sally Diamond after I had selected a few books I could take on a short staycation with me and then it was narrowed down by me reading the blurbs to my partner and her deciding on one based on that. It's a unique story with a great and loveable main character with some dark moments heavily layered in that keep those interested in darker storylines interested.

The Stranger in Her House by John Marrs book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
Continuing on with my recent obsession with thrillers, I asked on my TikTok who the next thriller author I should try next is and many came back and said John Marrs. So I dropped Marrs a quick DM on Instagram telling him such and asking him where he thinks I should start with his books. He very kindly sent me The Stranger in Her House to read. And it's a great little thriller. Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

None Of This Is True by Lisa Jewell book review

None Of This Is True by Lisa Jewell book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
I've read some Lisa Jewell before, and I've been impressed by her books before. However, none of her books have quite engrossed me like None Of This Is True did. I'm not sure whether it's because I'm on a big thriller hype at the moment or whether it genuinely was that gripping but I came away from None Of This Is True wanting to physically applaud, it was that enjoyable!

Lie With Me by Sabine Durrant book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
I decided recently to do a challenge over on my YouTube where I wanted to read books that authors recommended to me.

Sea State by J.M. Simpson book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
Sea State by J.M. Simpson is a book that picked for me as part of me followers picks of the year. if you don't know, at the start of the year, I asked all of my followers to pick a book and then I chose the 12 most-liked or recommended and put one as each month of the year. Sea State was one of these books after some people said it was a hidden gem. I can wholeheartedly agree. Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

The Maid by Nita Prose book review

Book reviews, Crime, Mystery
During a haul of some of the cheapest paperbacks I could find on Amazon, I picked up the much talked about The Maid by Nita Prose. An appealing front cover and the promise of a unique main character pulled me in on this one and had me hoping for a new series to get stuck into (knowing there was a sequel and plans for a third).

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie book review

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie book review

Book reviews, Crime, Mystery
Agatha Christie is widely considered the greatest crime writer to ever do it. Not only did she end up writing an incredibly large number of them, but some of the "cliches" and "tropes" that we experience in crime today were literally formed by her. This last point is no more true than the incredibly popular story of And Then There Were None. Oh and when I say popular, apparently only about five other books have ever sold more than this one book which is impressive for a woman who penned 75 books, 66 of which were full-length detective novels.

The Girls Who Disappeared by Claire Douglas book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
I'm starting to really get into my thrillers. I think previously I wasn't appreciating the connecting plot and the interweaving stories that come with the genre. But as I've read more and taken more care to understand them, I've really began to appreciate it. The Girls Who Disappeared by Claire Douglas is another thriller that absolutely nails it for me with a generous, intelligent story and a cast of characters that do just enough to make me care.

The Housemaid’s Secret by Freida McFadden book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
So often a book comes out that everybody starts talking about and then you read it and it’s a disappointment. This was not the case with The Housemaid which I was incredibly impressed by, even going as far as to include it in my top ten books of the year list.
