The Woman in the Window (Book) Review

I read this book in tandem with my friend Heather and it was so much fun. We both raced through it in a couple of days and compared notes as we went. This book is impossible to put down, something authors are always quoted as saying for the cover of novels but in this case […]

Such Small Hands (Book) Review

It would be very hard for me to go in too deep on this book because it’s very hard to define. It’s stunning though; macabre, fascinating and eery as hell. Marina is seven and has just become an orphan, after her parents are killed in a car accident. The same accident strips the skin from […]

In place of his classics I was all over Judy Bloom, Jilly Cooper and Jackie Collins. I guess I was a precocious kid in my reading tastes, I like the feeling […]

Carrie (Book) Review

Carrie White is no ordinary girl Carrie is one of those stories I’ve been aware of since the beginning of time because of the Brian De Palma adaptation. It was a terrifying movie as a teenager and is still eerily sad today. I’d never picked up the book but as mentioned here, I was inspired to do […]
