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!
Rose and Rosie have put together an honest look at their lives and how they have become the people they are today. As YouTube stars with around 750,000 followers, these girls are entertaining and it felt like I was having a chat with two of my close friends. I'm sure their long term fans will love it even more than I did, it's 4 stars from me.
I really felt that this book spoke to me. "Tin Man" is a beautiful story of childhood friends who fall in love. Yes, it's dreamy and it's whimsical, but don't we all need a bit of that once in a while?? 5 stars!
If I had seen a description of this book that described it as gothic, historial fiction, I'd never have picked it up. Learning it was paranormal would have put me off too, yet Waters' style is something different and I read every word with care. Some parts didn't sit quite right with me, dragging a little at times, but this was certainly an enjoyable read - it's 4 stars for "Affinity".
This is a fascinating and heartwarming story about the meaning of unconditional love and self-acceptance. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy "The Danish Girl" enough to award it more than three stars but am still glad that I read it. Perhaps I'll enjoy the film a little more.
This one is difficult to review without saying too much but it's full of suspense, anticipation and has an atmosphere I felt immersed in. I loved this psychological thriller and will be scoring "The Paying Guests" 5 stars.
