Before I Go To Sleep by SJ Watson book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
When I recently asked on my social media channels what I should read next from my TBR list, the majority of the answers came back for me to read Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson. I’d heard of the book before and had a general premise of what the book was about so I was keen to jump in and see if it could surprise me in any way.

Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith book review

Book reviews, Historical Fiction, Mystery, Thriller
I'd heard quite a few people suggest picking up and reading Child 44 including a lot of people who voted when I asked people which book on my physical TBR they should I should pick up next. I went into it blind with no idea what it was about, didn't even read the blurb. Was that a mistake? Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

The Pact by Sharon Bolton book review

The Pact by Sharon Bolton book review

Book reviews, Mystery, Thriller
I picked up The Pact by Sharon Bolton after sourcing my physical TBR for a companion audiobook that wouldn't cost me half a lung. At £2.99 (about $3.60) for The Pact, I thought I'd pick it up. I'd had a couple of recommendations to read it by some friends too so that added to my reasoning for it. The premise sounded like it had potential too but did it live up the hype?

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson book review

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson book review

Book reviews, Crime, Mystery, Thriller
A Good Girls' Guide to Murder is another of those books I'd seen a lot of on social media. And, as with a lot of my next book choices, it became available to listen to via the library-lending app, Libby and so I decided to pick it up and give it a listen. It's a book possibly aimed at a younger audience but one that I found myself very much enjoying as a man in his late 20s also! Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

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.
