Book Review: The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson

tkwk-peter-swanson

I devoured this great thriller over the weekend, it was so fast-paced, I flew threw it. For the first time in a long time (if at all), a book that has been adequately likened to ‘Gone Girl’, I echo the words of Daisy Goodwin, this book is indeed “Gone Girl on speed”…

From the back cover:

When his flight gets delayed. Ted Severson meets Lily, a magnetic stranger, in the airport bar. In the netherworld of international travel and too many martinis, he confesses his darkest secrets, about his wife infidelity and how he wishes her dead. Without missing a beat she offers to help him carry out the task… Continue reading “Book Review: The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson”

I’ve finally put together a spooky TBR for the 6 book Halloween Read-A-Thon hosted by Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews. I’ve got a few creepy reads sitting on my shelves so I’m looking forward to this. You can use the same book for multiple challenges but I’m going to attempt a different book per challenge….but if you see one book appear twice at the end of the challenge, we’ll pretend I didn’t say that.

Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know to participate:

Monthly Summary: September 2016 Wrap Up

Hey bookish friends – the end of the month has arrived, so it’s wrap up time.

After a summer of nothing but reading, I returned to university this month to study Mental Health Nursing. So yay to me and 3 more years of studying….but once I graduate, I can combine that with my degree in criminology and really understand all these crime fiction criminals. In the real world setting, I would like to work in a [young offender] forensic mental health setting. That’s all the non-bookish news I have, so let’s move on…

I didn’t get through as many books as last month but it was still a good reading month.

The Good

These three books stole the show this month: Continue reading “Monthly Summary: September 2016 Wrap Up”

Book Review: Method 15/33 by Shannon Kirk

method-1533

There comes a time in a reader’s life, when they unexpectedly come across a book and it feels like the author wrote that book just for them, like the author knew their interests, likes and dislikes and crafted the perfect story with them in mind… Method 15/33 is that book to me.

Book Description:

Imagine a helpless, pregnant 16-year-old who’s just been yanked from the serenity of her home and shoved into a dirty van. Kidnapped Alone Terrified.

Now forget her

Picture instead a pregnant, 16-year-old, manipulative prodigy. She is shoved into a dirty van and, from the first moment of her kidnapping, feels a calm desire for two things: to save her unborn son and to exact merciless revenge. Continue reading “Book Review: Method 15/33 by Shannon Kirk”

Book Review: Worth Killing For (A DI Fenchurch Novel Book 2) by Ed James

worth-killg-for-ed-james

After meeting, DI Simon Fenchurch in book 1: The Hope That Kills,  I was eager to return to the streets of London for his next case.

Book Description:

On a busy London street, a young woman is attacked in broad daylight and left bleeding to death on the pavement. Among the eyewitnesses are DI Simon Fenchurch and his wife.

Fenchurch pursues the attacker through a warren of backstreets and eventually arrests a young hoodie with a cache of stolen phones—an ‘Apple picker’ on the make. The case should be closed but something feels off…Was this really just about a smartphone? Why did the victim look nervous before she was targeted? And why don’t the prints on the murder weapon match the young man in custody?
