Today it's my stop on Will Carver's Good Samaritans blog tour and I am pretty excited to talk about this fabulously dark and disturbing thriller!

A suffocating father-daughter relationship: Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss

If there was a contest of writing, that will require telling a story using the least amount of words, this book would win it this year. A borderline novella, Ghost Wall is a powerful story that could easily be read in one sitting. I loved the idea behind this novel. The sacrificed bog girls, whose … Continue reading A suffocating father-daughter relationship: Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss

A quintessentially British Spy Novel: Transcription by Kate Atkinson

I wasn't a fan of Kate Atkinson's acclaimed novel Life After Life and was hesitant to try this, but after seeing the praises I couldn't resist the temptation of asking the publisher for a copy.

Claire Fuller’s Bitter Orange: A novel of memory and obsession

Bitter Orange, the fruit, is not what it seems; looks sweet and plump as an orange but it's almost inedible and sour. Characters in Claire Fuller's breathtakingly atmospheric and cleverly structured novel are in a way very similar to bitter oranges. Mother always said that I was a girl who liked order, to know what … Continue reading Claire Fuller’s Bitter Orange: A novel of memory and obsession
