Book Review: Killing Eve: Codename Villanelle by Luke Jennings

As inspiration for BBC show "Killing Eve", this story features some strong female characters, but for me it didn't have much more going for it. I didn't find it particularly gripping or engaging and I don't think I'll be picking up the sequel. Dare I say it, the TV show was better in my eyes!

Rare Birds Book Club: November 2018

I came across the Rare Birds Book Club at Stylist Live last week. Named by the magazine as a company to watch in 2019, I knew that I just had to sign up! I hadn't heard of this subscription before, but as they've only recently celebrated their first birthday, I'm sure this is a brand that will grow and blossom in the future.

Blog Tour: Good Samaritans by Will Carver

It’s my stop on the “Good Samaritans” blog tour! Not one for the fainthearted, Will Carver's "Good Samaritans" is an intense read. Full of twists and turns that left me shocked, this book is complex at times and unlike anything I've read recently.  If you're looking for something dark, disturbing and explicit, I'd recommend checking this book out.

Book Review: Lullaby by Leïla Slimani

"Lullaby" is gripping and it's definitely a thriller, but I don't know if there is much more I can say. From page one we know how the story is going to end, so the pages explore why and how this has come to happen. When the final page is turned, we still don't really know the answers so let's say I enjoyed it but I need some more time to process what I've read to truly appreciate it. 3 stars!
