Grief is hard to live with, but it's also a huge part of living.
This one got great reviews, Entertainment Weekly ran an incredible review, and this one is even slated to become a TV series with the same production company that made Sharp Objects, my latest obsession.
Watching You is a quick read, mostly because you won't be able to stop turning the pages furiously, with lots of satisfying twists and turns.
Today I'm reviewing Best Day Ever by Kaira Rouda. I was intrigued by the description of the book. Of course, when something is supposed to be the "best day ever", it's clear from the beginning it won't be. It'll probably be the worst day ever for someone. This book is definitely dark. And it's one... Continue Reading →
I already had this galley on my Kindle, ready to go, when I attended a Mary Kubica book event at my local library. She recommended The Breakdown as a great title for her fans, so of course I had to run home and immediately begin reading it. I was fighting to keep my eyes open,... Continue Reading →

A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window said, "“Atmospheric, spellbinding—as haunting as the best of Du Maurier, as psychologically astute as Kate Atkinson. Read it and shiver.”
This week I'm reviewing Beautiful Bad by Annie Ward. I seriously knew nothing about the book's plot when I sat down to read it. I must have read something at some point to request it on Netgalley, but I started totally oblivious to what the story would be about. As I started to read, it... Continue Reading →
Between the Lies is Michelle Adam's second published work, but from the sounds of it, she has been writing for years. I love stories like hers because they show that if you fail, try, try again. I haven't read her first book, My Sister, but I have seen some good reviews of it. My feelings were... Continue Reading →
