Review: Ghosting – A Love Story by Tash Skilton

Lately, I find myself drifting towards contemporary novels. I crave that cute romance and the heartfelt characters. Luckily, I was approved for this ARC, written by dual authors, which is always a treat for me (more perspectives to read from)! My Review: Overall… Meh The Pros: What worked for me The premise of ghostwriting/copywriting was so unique! Now, I’m familiar…

Review: After She Wrote Him by Sulari Gentill

My Review: An Unexpected But Brilliant Read Calling this the most unique novel I’ve ever read would be the understatement of a century. I went into this novel thinking that the concept was cool – two different writers are … writing about … each other… I had to read it. I’m so glad I did. The Pros: What worked for…

Review: Goldilocks by Laura Lam

When I requested this book, I had a feeling it would be out of my comfort zone. I don’t read many books that take place in space but I couldn’t resist the thriller/horror vibes it was giving me. My Review: Emotionally-Charged, and Engaging as Hell While this book initially gave me thriller vibes, it is definitely more of a character-driven…

But what started off as a really cool story eventually gave in to the same cliched tropes as many other thrillers. The Pros: What worked for me From beginning to end, this story…

Review: The Apartment by K.L. Slater

When I read the premise of this novel, it immediately reminded me of a previous book I had read. After racking my brain and trawling through Goodreads, it came to me: the premise was similar to that of Lock Every Door by Riley Sager. While that book had not been the greatest, I hoped that this novel would be more…

Review: The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

After loving Final Girls, I was very excited to read the latest book by this author! My Review This novel has a very different vibe to the Final Girls, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing … but I enjoyed the latter to this one. The Pros: What worked for me The author stayed true to their writing style, keeping it…

Review: Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

Riley Sager has been an author whose work has either been a hit or a miss for me. I absolutely adored Final Girls but found Last Time I Lied to be lacking. Nevertheless, I was excited to see what new story he would come up with, as the premise of all of his novels has always been extremely unique! My…
