Verity by Colleen Hoover book review

Verity by Colleen Hoover book review

Book reviews, Contemporary Fiction, Mystery, Thriller
Verity was a flash in a pan of a book. I picked it up as a part of a deal after someone DMed me saying that it was amazing! The book was described to me as "mind-blowing" and "you'll love it" and for the first 95% of the book I was thinking it was good and tense but a bit predictable and then literally the last 5% had me shooketh.

The Last Thing to Burn by Will Dean book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
It's actually been a couple of weeks since I finished The Last Thing To Burn. Usually, I review a book quite soon after I finish it. The Last Thing to Burn left an impression on me.

The Family Remains by Lisa Jewell book review

The Family Remains by Lisa Jewell book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
The Family Upstairs was a massive hit for Lisa Jewell, rocketing her firmly into one of the most popular British thriller authors writing today. An author who rarely does sequels, the outcry for Jewell to write a follow up to The Family Upstairs was so loud that she's written one. It states at the end of the book that she was reluctant to write a sequel until one day she realised who she wanted to write the book from the viewpoint of and everything else clicked into place. Introducing The Family Remains. Please note that an ARC (advanced reader copy) of The Family Remains was kindly sent to me by the publisher in return for an honest review.

The Catch by T.M. Logan book review

The Catch by T.M. Logan book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
I picked up The Catch because my parents asked if I'd drive them down to Southampton for a cruise they were going on and I knew I'd need an audiobook to listen to on the way back. The day before I saw The Catch was in my audible library and on my physical bookshelf, PLUS I'd heard some excellent things about T.M. Logan, so I thought this would be a perfect long journey companion - and it very much was! Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

When The Girl Before was the only option for me to listen to on my audiobook I wasn't quite expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. It's a story filled with intrigue and mystery that keeps you guessing right up until the last few pages. But the characters just keep it from reaching great heights.
