I’ll Remember You – The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue Review

I’m going to come out and say this straight away: I have a bunch of V.E Schwab’s books and I’ve met her multiple times, yet The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is only the 3rd book of hers I’ve read. The first two were audiobooks from her middle-grade series and then this one. And I…

Becoming a Necromancer of the Ninth – Halloween Special!

Happy Halloween! We finally made it to my favourite time of the year! Naturally, due to the Rona, Halloween has been pretty much cancelled to keep everyone safe, but I still decided to do something to celebrate! So I decided to dress up in a homemade outfit heavily inspired by some of my favourite characters…

My Dark Vanessa Review – Disturbing & Important

Before I talk about this book I am going to issue some serious trigger warnings. That’s not something I usually do for my reviews, but I feel like it’s so important for this review, especially for those who might not be familiar with the content and story of My Dark Vanessa. Trigger warnings throughout my…

Dark, Atmospheric & Twisty – The Witch House Review

The Witch House by Ann Rawson is a twisty turny dark thriller that I didn’t know was missing from my life until I read it. If you’re looking for an absorbing mystery thriller with an unreliable narrator – who is also a complex character in their own right – adding further to the confusion and…

Spooky Goings On – I Am Dust Review

I Am Dust is the first book by Louise Beech that I’ve read and it likely won’t be the last. The story revolves around the Dean Wilson Theatre, a popular and well-known theatre that is supposedly haunted by a long-dead actress who was murdered. As with all ghost stories with this sort of story, she…

Home Invasion With A Twist – The Silent House

Home invasion – it’s a trope that I love! I mean, it scares the ever-loving crap out of me, but I love it! So the opening promo sentence for The Silent House by Nell Pattison really got beneath my skin: If someone was in your house, you’d know…wouldn’t you? Oooh! Isn’t that just creepy and…

Horror in a pure form – The Forever House Review

The Forever House is a pretty good book with a pretty terrible cover. I’d never have picked this up from a shelf based on the cover, but thank god for that blurb! The Forever House is also the first book from Tim Waggoner that I’ve read, and it won’t be the last. Tim Waggoner is…

A fun sci-fi experience – Chasing Solace Review

I’ll admit straight away 2 things: Opals are my favourite gemstone ever, so I was kinda already swayed when I found out that the MC of Chasing Solace was called Opal. And secondly, I’ve been really trying to get into sci-fi a bit more because I love it in film and TV (brought up on…
