Review: Hide by Nell Pattison

So I’ve learned that I am a sucker for books with purple and blue covers, and apparently ones with snow as well? Perhaps that is merely the sort of thriller I crave when it gets cold, as there are many believable elements within. Anyway, Hide by Nell Pattison is the latest thriller I decided to dive into.

Review: Little Darlings by Melanie Golding

Melanie Golding’s debut thriller novel, Little Darlings, is one that immediately caught my attention. Thanks in part to a brilliant cover (I’m a sucker for this particular aesthetic) but also due to the description. Continue reading

Review: Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney

Rock Paper Scissors happens to be the first novel I’ve ever read by Alice Feeney (I know, I know. But I have several of her books on my TBR list). This twisting thriller is one heck of a roller coaster, though, and I would recommend it to any fans of hers – plus anybody else that is curious. Continue reading

Review: Silverview by John le Carre

Silverview by John le Carre came up as one of my Book of the Month options, and I grabbed it without hesitation. It wasn’t until after I started reading that I learned that Silverview is a novel le Carre had been working on over the course of a few years – never quite getting it to the point that he liked. So now I’m feeling a bit conflicted on the matter. Continue reading

First: the color; I love that bright red and black cover! Second, it’s a thriller, and I almost always grab the thriller option each month. Continue reading
