The Pisces is a funny, dark and clever novel from Melissa Broder. If you're not shy of reading sexual descriptions or disliking the characters in a novel -or more like not finding one single character to like in it- then you should read The Pisces as it is a glorious satire of the modern concept … Continue reading The Plight of the available woman and the unavailable man : The Pisces by Melissa Broder
It took less than six months for everything to fall apart. That's how Darling, a debut novel by Rachel Edwards opens. From the start it plays out that things are going to be bad. But I wasn't able to guess how! Darling was a confusing read for me. It started like a contemporary novel between people … Continue reading Oh Darling, you have a problem: Darling by Rachel Edwards
I loved everything I read from Peter Swanson so far. The Kind Worth Killing, Her Every Fear (my favourite among the lot), The Girl with a Clock for Heart. All the Beautiful Lies was no exception. If you're after a really good quality thriller, then you should try Peter Swanson. He is the master of … Continue reading ALL the perfect #PeterSwanson books
Beartown by Fredrik Backman (also published as Scandal) What a book! I can't believe this book is written by a man. Yes. I know, Prejudice. Whatever. Sorry to sound like an arsehole. But the strength of emotions and the amount of painfully accurate truth in this book is dazzling. I cannot express my admiration on … Continue reading Bears from the Beartown
I am SO looking forward to read Sophie Hannah's new Poirot mystery, which will be published in August and revealed it's cover earlier this month. I've seen this beautifully vintage and Christie-like cover a few weeks ago.( was just being lazy to write this post) My initial reaction for this cover was: It looks … Continue reading Cover Reveal: The Mystery of Three Quarters
Mini review Mondays is a meme I host, which I put together 2 or more reviews for books I gave 3 stars or less. Bring Me Back by B A PARIS This wasn't a bad read to be honest. I really got into it, and I was hooked. However the good and promising start turned … Continue reading Mini Review Mondays: Using The Power to Bring me back writing reviews!

“To those out on their own paths, setting little fires” Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng was an amazing read. I LOVED this book. A bulky 5 stars. I don't know what put me off reading this book last year, probably the 'desperate housewife-y' blurb, or not seeing many reviews around. I know it was … Continue reading Celeste Ng Lights up Little Fires inside me. Everywhere.
I finished Christine Mangan's Tangerine last week and can't stop thinking how strikingly similar it was with The Talented Mr Ripley. I can't believe it's NOT mentioned on the blurb as the publishers are so eager to label books as "for fans of such and such"! If you liked Ripley, you'll love this book. I found Mangan's … Continue reading Tangerine: The Talented Mr Ripley goes to Tangier
I am delighted to announce that I will be giving away one signed copy of the thrilling story of a stalker by Jody Gehrman: Watch Me.

It's a gripping story of a young man and his tutor, if … Continue reading GiveAway Time: Win a SIGNED copy of Watch Me by Jody Gehrman
I only have one book to review this Monday so I’ll wait for next monday to write the Mini Reviews! But in the meantime, I enjoyed reading Umut’s Mini Reviews here so want to share this 🙂 Hope you have a fabulous reading week!
Hello friends! It’s another Monday and I hope you had a great weekend with lots of great books 🙂 Today I’m joining my blogger friend Ova’s fun meme: Mini Review Mondays. She has a great idea of bundling together reviews of some books she read, as it’s hard to write detailed reviews for every single book we read. I couldn’t agree more! She has a great blog, so I’ll link back there for you to check that out as well. Click here to head to her blog.
I am in a reading slump lately. Unfortunately the last few books were not for me, and when they are in a row, it becomes harder to go back to my pace again.
I DNF-ed the last 3 books I attempted to read, but I still find it useful to explain here a little why I didn’t like them. So, here is my…

I will be hosting another meme on my blog, Mini Review Mondays. I read lots of books, so far since 1st Jan I have read 27- but I don't necessarily like each book enough to write a detailed review. So I decided to do mini reviews on mondays for the books that didn't blow my … Continue reading #MiniReviewMonday : Mini Reviews
