Book Review: If He Wakes by Zoe Lea

Book Rating 3/5 Book Review If He Wakes by Zoe Lea is a good thriller, and a nice, rather quick read. I received a ARC for an honest review. All of these thoughts are my own. And, I would say that this novel is definitely good, but it didn’t blow me away. I stayed interested…

Book Review: The Power by Naomi Alderman

The shape of power is always the same; it is the shape of a tree. Root to tip, central trunk branching and re-branching, spreading wider in ever-thinner, searching fingers.

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…

The Haunting of Blackwood House by Darcy Coates
