Review: The Witches- Roald Dahl

For those who didn’t catch my post for Roald Dahl day (find it here) you may not know that up until Sept 13th 2018 I had never read The Witches! Of course I had to rectify that, especially since I proudly own the Roald Dahl collection of children’s fiction. So to celebrate the greatest children’s author of all time I finally sat down to devour it last month. Continue reading “Review: The Witches- Roald Dahl”

Book Review- The Passage/ The Twelve- Justin Cronin

Is this even a review though? Maybe not..

Actually, I’m not sure this will even be a review, we should probably just call it praise. Continue reading “Book Review- The Passage/ The Twelve- Justin Cronin”

SYNOPSIS

Isabel’s life seemed perfect. Successful business, beautiful house, adoring husband. And then she was dead.

For four years Jessica has never doubted that her sister Isabel’s death was an accident. But when Jessica’s young daughter seems to know long-forgotten details about her aunt’s past, Jessica can’t shake the feeling that there’s a more sinister truth behind the tragedy.

As Jessica unearths disturbing revelations about her sister, and about the people she loved and trusted most, it becomes clear Isabel’s life was less than perfect and that Jessica’s might also be at risk.

Did someone murder Isabel? Are they now after Jessica and her family? The key seems to lie in the hands of a child. Can Isabel reveal the truth from beyond the grave, or is the answer closer to home? Continue reading “ARC Review: In Her Shadow- Mark Edwards”
