The Shadow Friend~Alex North

This was the second read for Read By Spooktober over on Instagram and The Shadow Friend is Alex North’s second book (The Whisper Man being his first nearly twelve months ago-two books in less than a year? Must be an avid writer!) and is the first of his titles I have read. After feeling somewhatContinue reading “The Shadow Friend~Alex North”

The Haunting of Hill House~Shirley Jackson

I’m not sure where to start with this one! Back in the 90’s I watched the film The Haunting (with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Owen Wilson) and at the time it really spooked me (I was barely a teenager and afraid of my own shadow so dumb move watching it really!) then many years later, NetflixContinue reading “The Haunting of Hill House~Shirley Jackson”

Pet Semetary~Stephen King

As part of the Read By Spooktober hashtag that’s going around Instagram among the book lovers and horror fans, Pet Sematary is the first of three spooky reads for the month of October. Having never seen either the original film or remake, I quite excited to read the novel, especially as Stephen King has inspiredContinue reading “Pet Semetary~Stephen King”

Follow Me To Ground~Sue Rainsford

Do you ever finish a book and think “what have I just read?” Because that’s exactly the effect that Follow Me To Ground has had on me! While perusing Goodreads reviews, I noted that many reviews mentioned how spooky and unnerving the book was, but I’m wondering if I’ve missed something? Ada was not bornContinue reading “Follow Me To Ground~Sue Rainsford”

The Year of the Witching~Alexis Henderson

I first saw this book while scrolling through Instagram And came across a post by the author showing the UK and the US covers side by side, and then that was it-I was drawn in and hooked on both of the cover pictures and I needed to own this book and to read it. AtContinue reading “The Year of the Witching~Alexis Henderson”

The Binding~Bridget Collins

I think today I will start my review with a question-it feels appropriate somehow to me. If you could have memories of your choosing taken from you and kept in a book hidden for the rest of your life, would you? This book has got me thinking about what memories I’d want to “bind” andContinue reading “The Binding~Bridget Collins”

Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave~Sibel Hodge

Having need a fan of Hodge’s crime thrillers, I decided to explore the other titles and genres she has written, and Trafficked is a novella based on the accounts of trafficked women and has placed itself firmly within the Top 40 Books About Human Rights by Accredited Online Colleges. It will change what you thinkContinue reading “Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave~Sibel Hodge”

The Other Wife ~ Claire McGowen

Literally started reading this at 8pm Sunday and finished 11pm Tuesday! I have loved every page! The second book of Clare McGowen’s I’ve read and I actually know I’m going to read and enjoy more of her books. The best read of 2020 so far! This also had a plot twist BUT pretty much aContinue reading “The Other Wife ~ Claire McGowen”

Where do I begin? Wealthy Chelsea family end up living within a commune in their own home and eventually find themselves surrendering their powers as the matriarch and patriarch of the family as well as their personal and household items of value. They live a “simpler” life under the guidance of David, only life isn’tContinue reading “The Family Upstairs~Lisa Jewell”
