“Soon" by Lois Murphy has a really interesting plot with a lot of potential but unfortunately I didn't enjoy the story overall. A little too slow paced for my tastes, this was a 2 star read for me.
"Last Night" by Mhairi McFarlane is an emotional read but it's still full of wit and funny moments. The themes of grief and loss are well written and realistic and the successful balance between the two make this a great 5 star read for me!
The Rampart Trilogy is a really great series that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to someone looking for a fantastical dystopian story. “The Fall of Koli” wraps up this trilogy perfectly, 5 stars!
“Perfect Death” is the third book in the D.I. Callanach series by Helen Fields. This book was as a little less gruesome than it's predecessors but still made for an enjoyable read. This slightly more character focussed read gets 3 stars from me.
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Favour" by Laura Vaughan, an atmospheric character study of a group of privileged young people. For the most part I found this to be an immersive read and I really liked the ending. It's 4 stars from me!
"The Midnight Library" by Matt Haig is a really quick read that'll plummet you into a magical world. I really enjoyed the concept and the thought provoking questions that it sparked. Some lives were more memorable than others but this is still a really great five stars from me.
It’s another 3 stars from me for "A Stanger in the House" by Shari Lapena. This is a contemporary thriller that I enjoyed, but wasn't amazed by. Recommended for fans of the author!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Last Snow", a dark, atmospheric crime drama that I really enjoyed. It's well written and so descriptive. I think fans of the genre will love this one, it's a big 4 stars from me!
"If You Could Go Anywhere" is a nice read, but it sadly didn't blow me away. It was a little slow moving and I wasn't too keen on the characters. I'm very open to other Paige Toon reads, but this one was a 2 star read for me.
"The Move" was another 3 star read for me. The writing was good and there were lots of lovely descriptions, but the plot didn't really have much to offer. Recommended for fans of a domestic drama, rather than a thriller or mystery.
