So, Katie is your average lady: a husband, kids, a mediocre life, and an obsession with the Kennedys. Not so average, then. Katie’s life, her slow descent into madness is Ask Not’s main feature, and also the most poignant.
So if you’re wondering why I’m reviewing books at a slower pace, here’s your answer, and Truly, Darkly, Deeply is one of those novels caught up in the bottleneck. Is it a bad thing? Well. Not really, because the delay made me realize something: I couldn’t remember the plot anymore less than a month after shelving it. If you’re grimacing right now, I wouldn’t blame you–alarm bells and the likes.
Wow. And I mean, wow. And There He Kept Her is a straight five, no questions asked; it’s also going to be in my 2022 top ten list—yeah, it’s that good. Also, it's a debut. I'm sobbing here
I’ve been warned from the very beginning that The Cabin Sessions was a slow book. Other reviewers seemed to confirm it, so I wasn’t expecting anything fast-paced or ripe with action when I dived in.
Unravelling is both the title of this book and an accurate description of the feeling that permeates the pages. Forbes doesn’t pull any punches: her novel is captivating, able to hold the reader’s attention and take them on a dizzying journey. Yay!
Oh, wow. Wow, wow, wow. The Ghost of Thorwald Place is a fantastic book, one that had me at hello.
The Summoning has been sitting on my TBR list for quite a while, and truth be told, I had great expectations about it. A captivating premise, an intriguing plot, and the first chapter read so promising: I mean, a fake medium who scams people in order to pay the hospital bills? Talk about dubious morality and shades of grey. I was hooked. Problem is, the rest of the book didn’t deliver.
Kane crafted an interesting story here, full of twists and turns. We know from the start who’s the killer, and we can figure out the hows and the whys in a little while, but at the same time, we have to deal with an unreliable narrator.
When I received the tour invitation, I knew I had to snatch that chance up fast; sci-fi and elite agency looked like a great combo, and I was curious to see how it would play out. For the most part, I have to say I’m satisfied.
Fall and redemption with a twist would be an appropriate subheading for The Fall.
