Exploring and understanding the emptiness felt by housewives in America during the 1960s, this little book is a really interesting read, especially if, like me, you don't know a great deal about the first two waves of feminism. 5 stars!
“I Know You” is a fast paced, gripping psychological thriller that I really enjoyed. It's certainly one that's going to make you think and perhaps review your privacy settings online too! It’s 5 stars from me!
'Every Time He Dies' by Tara East is a very well written, fast paced story of gang crime in Brisbane. I was hooked from page one and really enjoyed exploring the mystery behind a number of murders. I'd definitely recommend this one, it's 5 stars from me!
"The Familiars" is a historical story set during the time of the Pendle Witch Trials. I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it for fans of Gothic fiction.
