Book Review | The Liar’s Room

Last year, I went through a bit of a thriller phase, and I’ve been itching to pick up another one. And, I’ll admit it, the tagline of Simon Lelic’s The Liar’s Room hooked me. I’m not quite sure what I was expecting, but this book definitely went to a place I was not anticipating at all. (All […]

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.

Book Review | Dark Matter

I am definitely a mood reader. But I’m also a pretty predictable mood reader, and one thing I can rely on is that as soon as fall rolls around, I’m in the mood for books that are dark and thrilling. It might not actually be fall (even though I’m pretending it is), but that didn’t […]
