The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle – Stuart Turton

Too little information and you’re blind, too much and you’re blinded. I saw this book about 6 months ago when I was wasting time in an airport waiting for my flight. It looked interesting enough and just as I was about to buy it, my flight rang and I had to run. I did downloadContinue reading “The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle – Stuart Turton”

And I can totally see why it was banned for years due to strong sexual themes, incest, rape scenes and other sensitive subjects. This is not a “cute book” aboutContinue reading “Flowers in the Attic * Book 1 * V.C. Andrews Book review”

The Wicked Mr Hall – The Memoirs of the Butler Who Loved to Kill

OK, I must confess I picked up the book based on the cover. I barely had a look at the author, my eyes were drawn on the very Dexter-like blood splatters, the picture of a mansion in an old-timey frame and seeing the word Butler… made me think of all the crime novels I readContinue reading “The Wicked Mr Hall – The Memoirs of the Butler Who Loved to Kill”
