Review: The Wives by Tarryn Fisher

My Review: What a disappointment This book was supposed to be everything! With the premise hinting at polyamory, how could I not want to read this book?! 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…

And yet, I am always intrigued by the premise of whatever books she puts out and I find myself gravitating towards them. I was a little worried when I decided to give this book a chance.  But let me…

Review: Pretty Ugly Lies by Pamela Crane

In accordance with my plan to read books about marriage (yes, I’m still doing that), I decided to give this one a shot. What made it more interesting was the fact that it centered around more than just one woman. I wanted to see all of the different issues that could be brought to the forefront by each character. So…

Nevertheless, I wanted to give her another shot and see if maybe I would see the spark that everyone else was seeing. Here is my review: My Review The…
