    Blog Tour: Who Did You Tell? by Lesley Kara

    Thanks to Anne Cater@ Random Things Book Tours and the publisher for my spot on the blog tour. All thoughts are my own. What would you do if being an alcoholic was the only thing you knew?  It provided sanctuary from a cruel and uncaring world.  It was your safe place.  You could crawl into yourself when it all became too much.  It gave you confidence, and it brushed away your tears.  How on earth could you navigate the unchartered waters of becoming sober, recalling lost memories and engaging with your problems in a healthy and conducive manner?  How easy would it be to slip back into old habits?  You…

    Blog Tour: Slash by Hunter Shea

    Thanks to Anne @Random things through my letterbox for my spot on the blog tour and the publisher for my copy of the book.  All thoughts are unbiased and honest.  Instantly the book cover grabs you by the balls and you can feel the pain and fear that this novel is going to subject you to.  Slash examines survival, plain and simple. The idea that lightening couldn’t possibly strike twice is the primary theme.  This book is more than happy to pack up its things and move home into other genres.  This is a book that goes between Slasher, horror and thriller.  It reminded me a lot of the Friday…

    Review: Black Widow (Jack Parlabane #7) By Christopher Brookmyre

    This is the second book I’ve read by Christopher Brookmyre, the first being a sci-fi number.  This was a different read but no less awesome.  Brookmyre yet again delivers the addictive, dark fictional worlds we have come to expect from him, and he nails it home each time.  This is a mystery/thriller series that I’m going to go back and read more of because it literally ticks all of my boxes.  Thrills ✔️, murder ✔️unreliable narrator✔️ and twists ✔️  Although this was the first in series I happened to pick up, this definitely works as a standalone novel.  The writing style of Brookmyre is shrewd, evocative and quite frankly spine-tingling. …
