Review: The Turn of The Key

Rating: 3.75 Stars I will not call this an excellent book, but The Turn of The Key is my favourite one by Ruth Ware to date. I have found Ware to be a good writer who keeps the audience interested while giving the least surprising twists. This book is a bit different because it has... Continue Reading →

Review: The Rumour

Rating: 3 Stars The Rumour by Lesley Kara is a domestic thriller that looks into the how rumours spread, and how they can lead to unexpected outcomes.

Review: An Unwanted Guest

Rating: 4 Stars An old-fashioned murder mystery, set in an isolated hotel, where everyone is a suspect. What's not to like in a book like this? An Agatha Christie fan like me can never get enough of these mysteries, and Shari Lapena delivers the goods most satisfactorily. Ten people check into Mitchell's Inn, a beautiful...

Review: The Girl Before

Rating: 3.5 Stars Another day, another thriller. This one, while above average, still fails where it counts the most.... the climax. It's not a boring book, not at all. It is so interesting that once I started reading, I found it hard to put it down, and finished it in one day only. It was... Continue Reading →
