Burial Rites | 4.5 star review

Burial Rites, although completely different to what I expected, completely blew me away. I somehow managed to pick this book up, read through the entire thing and still didn’t realise that it was based on a true story, which is completely ridiculous of me. Burial Rites tells the story of Agnes who was the last woman to be executed in Iceland after she was convicted for the murders of two men. I think the beautiful way it’s written plays a […]

Lord Edgware Dies | 4 star review

Lord Edgware Dies is another book in the Poirot mystery series, and one that I think had not only me stumped but also Poirot and as always the ending didn’t fail to impress. It has some of the best collections of characters and I really enjoyed the way everything ended up coming together, I definitely think this was one of the more intricate plot lines. I have never had so many suspects and had each one turn out to be […]

The Big Four | 4 star review

The Big Four is the fifth book in the Poirot series, if you want to read the rest of the reviews, click here – 1, 2, 3, & 4. When I originally picked The Big Four to listen to I read some of the reviews and there seemed to be a general dislike for the storyline, with many believing it to be too fanciful and dramatic. I have to say I disagree, I really loved the way the story moved and […]

Everything Everything Book Review

First thing I have to say about this book is that I picked it up because of the hype of the film, and that probably wasn’t the best idea in hindsight. I should have looked at the book in more detail and I might have saved myself a little of the disappointment. But what’s done is done. The one thing about this book is it’s a trope through and through. Which isn’t always a bad thing, but I will say […]

The Song Rising Book Review

The Song Rising is the third review in the series – read my first and second review first! I still can’t put into words how much I love this series, characters and relationships! This book was no different to the others – I was enthralled throughout. Plus this story contained more of the political intrigue that I loved in the second book. The Song Rising was like the perfect mixture of The Bone Season and The Mime Order, and I […]

The Silkworm is the second book in a series please make sure you check out The Cuckoo’s Calling book review first! I started to reread this series including The Silkworm after reading and hating The Girl on the Train. It was one of the months, I was in the mood for some more adult fiction and wanted to carry on my crime thing I had going on. I had all three of the books sat on my shelf and I […]

Half Lost Book Review

Half Lost last instalment in the Half Bad series. If you haven’t read the other two click here for the first review and here for the second. Half Lost is Nathan’s journey as he begins to deal with his grief and loss. He realises that his part to play is a lot bigger than originally thought. Overview I thought that this was once again less clear. The clarity in the story and the character’s purpose became clouded. I hated that. It ruined […]
