Book Review: The Dark Lake by Sarah Bailey

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: It’s been quite a while since I have finished a book! Have you ever felt like you are in a “book hangover”? I’ve started about 5 books and just haven’t been enthralled with any of them. I finally sat myself down with my reading pillow and said “I’m finishing this…

She really seemed obsessed with what people…

Book Review: Before We Met by Lucie Whitehouse

Before We Met has been advertised as “the next Gone Girl”. Frankly, I hate it when books are compared to other books because no two can be alike. The characters, the plot line, the writing, the general feel. All of it is different in each book. So, when I saw that it was “the next…
