Pretty Fierce – Kieran Scott

Pretty Fierce – Kieran Scott

Pretty Fierce by Kieran Scott is described as an action movie in written form, so naturally I was intrigued. I have not read anything by Scott (or her pen name Kate Brian) has written before and I was unsure what I was going to get. What I got surprised me […]

I’ve Read Stuff

I’ve Read Stuff

   All These Perfect Strangers by Aoife Clifford was a gripping read in which you are never sure if the narrator is being honest or not. Told in three different timelines it was confusing at first, but then I found myself sucked in. I enjoyed the road Clifford took me down and […]

Before the Fall – Noah Hawley

 I had no idea what I was getting into when I started reading Before the Fall by Noah Hawley. I was thinking it was a standard disaster tale but that is not at all what I got. I instead read a story that started with a plane crash but soon spiraled into a […]

Take the Fall – Emily Hainsworth

Take the Fall – Emily Hainsworth

Take The Fall was a surprising thriller. Surprising in that I did not guess the killer at all which I loved, and surprising in that even though I was kept guessing till the end, I did not love it. Now, I liked it just fine, but the emotional hook just […]
