    Crime Thriller

    The Resident by David Jackson | Review

    When I first requested an advanced readers copy of The Resident, I was very excited!  There has been so much hype on book-twitter and a lot of blogger friends loved it.  I am very weary of getting involved in hyped books because I really don’t want to be disappointed.  I expected a strong psychological thriller but boy…this beast packed a spine shattering punch!  Imagine my delight when from chapter one onwards – I knew this was going to be the kind of dark and depraved that I live for in a crime novel.  The title and that mind-blowing cover set my imagination crazy.  Imagine a serial killer actually living in…

    Sins of the Father by Sharon Bairden | Blog Tour Review

    Sins of the father.  History tells a tale that is resonated through time.  Children are a product of their upbringing.  Children have to suffer through their parents’ misdeeds and endeavours.  Often children have a nice and wholesome upbringing but more often a lot of children do not.  Sins of The Father is a tale that documents a quite frank abysmal upbringing of our protagonist, Rebecca through to adulthood and the impact abuse can have on an individual.  Life is anything but easy but there are factors that could significantly ease that journey.  I am a complete goner for stories like this.  I love the atmosphere, the story-telling of something so…

    A Prayer For The Broken by Mark Tilbury | Blog Tour

    A Prayer for The Broken is an accurate testament that we shouldn’t fear creepy crawlies or heights – it is human’s that hold the key to breaking us open.  They have all the tools to completely alter our psyches.  I’m not ashamed to admit that this book held me in rapturous anticipation.  I hated characters with every fibre of my being and wanted a serious accident to befall them.  This psychological thriller chilled me to the very core but boiled my blood in the same sentence.  It has only solidified my viewpoint that people do such evil things in the name of religion. Eleven-year-old John McCormack has lost everything.  His…
