Book Review: The Lying Game by Ruth Ware

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: I really wanted to love The Lying Game. I’ve heard a lot of hype around it, and I had built it up to something that it just didn’t quite meet. It was a slow psychological thriller about a group of friends who experienced something horrible when they were young. We…

Speak No Evil by Tanya Anne Crosby

Rating: 3/5 Review: Speak No Evil is definitely worth the read. It was so good… right up until the ending. I found out that Speak No Evil is the first of a series, which might explain why the ending leaves us wanting more. Caroline’s mother dies, and her and her two sisters are reunited and have…
