Review: Lethal White

Rating: 3.5 Stars I think it was a mistake to read this book right after reading Career Of Evil. For one, I kept wanting to read one more page till I realized that I had spent all night reading it, and for another, it was not because of the mystery but because I just wanted... Continue Reading →

Review: Need To Know

Rating: 3.75 Stars This book really took me by surprise! I don't know why I bought it, maybe because there wasn't much choice at the time, but I'm so glad that I did.

Review: Final Girls

  Rating: 4 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.

Review: The French Girl

Rating: 3.5 Stars I bought The French Girl by Lexie Elliott while I was just browsing around the bookstore, waiting for my kids to make up their minds about what to get.

Review: The Hazel Wood

Rating: 4 Stars Wow! What can I say about this book? Let me tell you right now that this book is not everyone's cup of tea. Once in a while, a book comes along that you really like even when you can see the weaknesses in the story. This is one such book. I was... Continue Reading →
