Review:Luckiest Girl Alive

Rating: 3 Stars No matter what you think when you see the cover and read the blurb, Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll is NOT a thriller. I went in expecting a thriller, and kept waiting for the twist which never came. I had seen the book on bookstagram, and as always, avoided reading reviews,... Continue Reading →

Review: Austenistan

Rating: 2.5 Stars I don't like giving a low rating to books by Pakistani authors, and if they are female Pakistani authors, then I'd rather skip reviewing the book than give it a bad rating.

Review: Final Girls

  Rating: 4.5 Stars Like all hyped books, I thought Final Girls by Riley Sager would be another average read, another book being compared to Gone Girl, another thriller with predictable twists. Thankfully, this time I was wrong. And to be fair, Stephen King didn't say it was like Gone Girl, he said that if... Continue Reading →

Review: The Good Girl

Rating: 3 Stars I had been thinking about reading The Good Girl by Mary Kubica for a long time. It seemed to be a favourite on Instagram. I was a bit disappointed with it though. First off, there were comparisons to Gone Girl, which is never a good thing. A book should be original and... Continue Reading →
