"Hinton Hollow Death Trip" is full of all kinds of evil. Narrated by Evil itself, this isn't a book for the faint-hearted and is sure to keep you on your toes. I personally didn't love the style, but the story was really enjoyable and certainly unique! If you're looking for something dark, give this a try!
"Breakfast at Bronzefield" is a honest, candid look at life in a female prison. Highlighting some of the hidden truths behind locked doors, this was a really interesting, educational read - an enjoyable 3 stars for me!
“Wild Dog” is a unique and interesting story about switching off and going back into nature. I'm rating this book 4 stars and I'd definitely recommend checking it out once published next week.
"Setting the World on Fire" is a unique coming of age story. Having had everything she ever wanted in life, Rebecca DeMeyer is oblivious to reality. Rebecca finds her feet in the real world and learns the ugly truth about it too. This book was good and I'm sure that with some fine tuning, author Maggie K.C Au will be able to publish this as a great YA read.
Full of twists and turns, 'Haven't They Grown' is a fast paced, unique story that I really enjoyed. I didn't see the ending coming and I was kept engaged throughout. It's 4 stars from me!
“Starve Acre” is a creepy slow-burner. I needed a lot more description to feel full immersed in this gothic story but I enjoyed it for the most part – 3 stars.
'Seven Days' is a really gripping thriller which kept me on the edge of my seat - 4 stars.
My fifth Yōko Ogawa read is one of my favourites and I can't wait for more of her work to be translated. I really enjoyed "The Memory Police" and its unique look at how memories are an important part of our identity - 5 stars.
"A Knife for Harry Dodd" is a wonderful piece of detective fiction originally published in the 1950s. George Bellairs tells a very British story of murders in the countryside which I mostly enjoyed but a few niggles here and there knocked a couple of points off in my eyes - 3 stars.
“Expectation” explores how female friendships change over time. I found it to be very relatable and enjoyed learning about the lives and friendships between Hannah, Cate and Lissa. It’s 5 stars from me!
