BOOK REVIEW – Did You See Melody by Sophie Hannah

So disappointing! The plot sounded so promising, but ended up being boring and dragged out with characters who were so unlikeable I hardly cared what happened to them by the time I skimmed my way to the end. To use a phrase coined by someone I once knew: "one, two, skip a few ..." So... Continue Reading →

BOOK REVIEW – Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell

Utterly riveting! I couldn’t put this one down. 15-year-old Ellie Mack disappears without a trace one day.

She's 17, unattractive, overweight, unhappy, and practically friendless ... until for some reason, the dashing Larry Miller takes an unfathomable interest in her. After that, her life...

BOOK REVIEW – Duplicity by Sibel Hodge

Oh my very goodness!!! I don’t remember the last time I flew through a book like this! This one ticks all the boxes for a psychological thriller that you just can’t put down. Fast-paced, tons of ‘OMG’ moments, and with enough twists and turns to ensure you’ll need a good physiotherapist to see you right... Continue Reading →
