Book Review | The Chestnut Man

It’s time for all the spooky reads, and I’m pretty sure serial killer thrillers qualify. And one of the books I’ve been excited about since it came out last month is The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup.

Book Review | The Grace Year

I haven’t had the best luck with young adult books lately. But, when I came across The Grace Year, I knew I had to read it. It was marketed as a blend of The Handmaid’s Tale and The Power. Which had everything in my brain screaming “yes please!”. Honestly, I couldn’t imagine any book living […]

Book Review | The Butterfly Garden

Book Review | Something in the Water

I was looking for a new audiobook a couple of weeks ago, and Reese Witherspoon’s June book pick caught my eye. Thrillers are not normally something I gravitate towards, but I’ve been picking them up pretty consistently this year. Catherine Steadman’s Something in the Water seemed interesting, and I bought it on a whim on Audible. (All […]
