Book Review: Foe by Iain Reid

★ ★ ★ Foe is described as a "taut, psychological mind-bender" and while that is fitting, for me it was more of a slow burn, character driven story that is centered around relationships and isolation. It had that uneasiness within the first couple of pages that never leaves long after you've finished reading it. I… Continue reading Book Review: Foe by Iain Reid

Book Review: White Bodies by Jane Robins

★ ★ White Bodies was genuinely creepy, but didn’t really reach the thriller factor for me. This was a novel that I couldn’t wait to dive into because the premise was promising, but it fell a bit flat. Between the writing style and the protagonist, Callie, I had difficulty getting engrossed into the story and… Continue reading Book Review: White Bodies by Jane Robins

Book Review: Exquisite by Sarah Stovell

★ ★ ★ ★ Deliciously dark, Exquisite is a book that you will not put down once you begin reading the first page. Alice Dark enters Bo Luxton’s quiet, simple life, and a sinister relationship develops. Told in both Bo and Alice’s point-of-view, an unnerving, claustrophobic story unfolds of passion, manipulation, loss, and obsession. I… Continue reading Book Review: Exquisite by Sarah Stovell

Any chance I had, I let people know about this book because I was… Continue reading Book Review: The Twilight Wife by A.J. Banner

Book Review: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Dark Matter by Blake Crouch has gotten so much hype, and it certainly deserves it. This book is so (positively) overwhelming, thought-provoking, and made me feel so small the further along. It is such an engaging thriller with sci-fi elements that I truly enjoyed, and the science and multiverse discussion spoken… Continue reading Book Review: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
