Helluva good psychological thriller. And that ending...

Likely to be one of the top psycho-thrillers of the tear, in my opinion.

This book is written perfectly for it's genre. It's pacy, and it doesn't get bogged now with needless exposition (huge peeve of mine in th...

I'm not entirely sure I understand why the book is called The Hiding Place? Perhaps it's because I was rushing to finish it, but I don't recall anyone really hiding anywhere...so if you can explain it to me I'm all ears!

The title choice was probably what bothered me...

Winner winner, chicken dinner!

The Woman in the Window has catapulted to the top of my list of favourite 2018 books, now surpassing The Outsider, by Stephen King.

This book was so addictive, and actually one of those books you don't want to put down. I found myself p...

One of my fave reads of 2018!

Riley Sager (with just two novels) has catapulted his way into my list of favourite authors. He reminds me quite a lot of Gillian Flynn, in that both write striking psychological thrillers with beautiful prose to boot. 

On his writing; S...

Cue the debate!

All right, so right now this one is being given a mid-star rating while I let it digest (with a slight leaning toward the 4th star....Goodreads, give us more stars or half stars already!) 

I'll get the easy points out of the way.

First, the book, alt...

NO END TO THE UNIVERSE.

The King returns with a bang.

I felt like I was left wanting more with King's previous publication, Sleeping Beauties. The Outsider is redemption. 

Ultimately, The Outsider is just plain-old fun reading, a feat of storytelling in true Stephen...

So upon consideration, I've settled upon 4 stars rather than 5.

Why? Although this was a really good book, it did lack just a little somethin-somethin that will keep me thinking about it for many years to come, me thinks. Here's why that may be:

Station Eleven is a b...

The Dead Zone is a reminder that King writes beautiful literature. Just like he's done with novels like The Green Mile, Lisey's Story, perhaps even Gerald's Game, King writes a literary heartbeat into The Dead Zone that I did not see coming. 

There is almost always a...

What a fitting title for a novel. It extends to the author.

Force of Nature proves Jane Harper isn't a one-off. Her success isn't a fluke. Force of Nature solidifies Harper on my list of authors whose books I will spring for as soon as they come out -there are few (J....

I'm pissed at myself - I worry that reading The Dry as my first book of the year means that every other novel I read in 2018 will be a disappointment in comparison...

I consumed this book. One large bite, and oh so satisfying. 

Let's break it down.

The hallmark of t...
