Nicholas Sparks * The Guardian Book Review

It’s been quite a while since I’ve read a story about a woman, a man and a dog and a psychopath chasing them which wasn’t written by Dean Koontz. Nicholas Sparks has written many, many books like The Notebook and A Walk to Remember – but this is his first thriller and I must sayContinue reading “Nicholas Sparks * The Guardian Book Review”

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter Book Review

This is my second book by Karin Slaughter and I think “Pretty Girls” is almost as good as The Good Daughter and it even shares some of the common themes: fractured family caused by a murder/disappearance of a loved one, two sisters very different from each other working together to find the killer, a prolific serialContinue reading “Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter Book Review”

Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis Book Review

I haven’t read any other books by Bret Ellis after his American Psycho (1991) and I thought I’d give Lunar Park a go. Written in 2006 it follows the life of the author post his literary success into a life of debauchery and then domestic bliss. “I had dreamed of something so different from what realityContinue reading “Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis Book Review”

Cat – V. C. Andrews (Wildflowers 04)

Since I’ve started with the shitty series from V.C. Andrews (or her ghostwriter), I decided to tackle the last book in the series called Cat. This is definitely the most disturbing of this series. Cat deals with issues that none of the other girls had to. This wasn’t arguing parents or legal disputes or evenContinue reading “Cat – V. C. Andrews (Wildflowers 04)”

Book Review – Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes

If you’re looking for a book that will keep you up past bed time, read Into The Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes. It’s darker than You – Caroline Kepnes Book Review and I think it got some influences from Rose Madder * Stephen King (you’ll know why if you read it). It’s definitely a book to be added to BooksContinue reading “Book Review – Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes”

Stephen King – I know what you want * Night shift

From the Night Shift comes another wonderful creepy story about a couple in love. Well, when they met they weren’t a couple. And when they broke up, they had a story to tell to raise the hair up on your arms. I know what you need. Like the voice of a submarine captain tolling offContinue reading “Stephen King – I know what you want * Night shift”

Dean Koontz The Door to December Book Review

If you are wondering who was Leigh Nichols, it was none other than Dean Koontz doing a bit of Richard Bachman-ing. The Door to December book, written in 1988 is a small thriller gem, filled with ghosts and Paranormal activity, is a great way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon in a hammock.
