As always, writing a review for a mystery/thriller is difficult, as you don't want to give anything away. Therefore today's review will be short and sweet, as this is the type of book where you want to go in blind. I received an e-ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Trigger warnings: … Continue reading Follow Me, Like Me

Luckily, the lovely Simon Armstrong and Penguin Books sent me the ARC of One of Us is Next and I greedily devoured it in one day. Obviously, there will be no spoilers here, but it does mean that my review will be limited.
For my first reviews of 2020, I'm sharing another instalment of my Mini Review Mondays, after reviving it last month! In case you haven't seen any of my previous posts, I do 'mini' reviews of books that I've read, loved and usually promised to review ages ago. Today, I'm focusing on two absolutely stunning stories, starting with Wilder Girls, which is published in the UK exactly one month from today. I managed to read it early, as I traded for a UK ARC.
This month, I'm aiming to read a fair few books, many of which I've been generously gifted by various lovely publishers and friends & family! As always, this will be a working document that I will update throughout the month to track my progress. The symbol ✨ means that I'm currently reading that book. Grief Angels … Continue reading January TBR
