book.review: The Regulars by Georgia Clark

1

This review is my most liked review on GoodReads…and for good reason. I’m being honest when I say this book is a smogasboard of horrid. There is such a thing as ugly..and it’s this book.

I must have missed something here. I’ve never read a book that has inspired such a bad review and I’m going to try and keep my emotions in check.

I’ve just finished THE REGULARS by Georgia Clark…and I’m pretty mad.

book.review: it happens all the time by amy hatvany

Warning: do NOT start this book at 10:00pm on a weeknight. You’ll find yourself, like me, wide awake at 1am, 49% of the way through the novel, and just dying to read one. more. chapter.

A highly addictive read. A gripping premise. IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME by Amy Hatvany is a must read.

I SEE YOU by Clare Mackintosh is a good foray into the mystery thriller, and had it not taken it sweet little time getting into the nitty-gritty, I would have rated it higher. Buckle up – if you want to read, you need to be prepared to be in for the long haul.

I needed a really good book to bring me out of my reading funk. Nothing too harsh, nothing too hectic, nothing too serious, nothing too fluffy. Sophia Kinsella’s MY NOT SO PERFECT LIFE fit the bill to a perfect “T”.

Cults are fascinating to me. With documentaries like HOLY HELL thrusting cult fascination back into the spotlight, a new novel entitled THE GIRLS by Emma Cline puts another interesting spin on ‘cult’ life. While it’s not without it’s fault, it’s a solid easy read.

the outliers by kimberly mccreight

First and foremost, I’m happy to see that this is the first in a trilogy. When you read the rest of my review, you’ll understand why….

THE OUTLIERS by Kimberly McCreight is this author’s first foray into young adult territory. McCreight’s adult novels (I’ve always hated the labels adult vs. young adult) are some of my favourite reads. Her breakthrough novel RECONSTRUCTING AMELIA was one of the best debuts ever.

THE OUTLIERS, on the other hand, doesn’t debut with as much of a bang as her past novels. A great set up to what could be a fantastic story, I found THE OUTLIERS to get bogged down in too much of the unnecessary and not enough of the plot.

book.review: hidden by catherine mckenzie

Definitely an interesting read! Catherine McKenzie never fails to deliver in her novels and HIDDEN is a great reflection of that. While not as strong as some of her older novels, a hearty plot line keeps readers enthralled until the bitter end. Watch out for that epilogue!
