All the White Spaces by Ally Wilkes

When this book landed on my doorstep, with a letter from the esteemed James Randall himself inviting me on the expedition, I knew that this would be the novel to break me out of my reading slump. Having been fascinated with the story of Captain Scott as a child, this novel was just shouting at me to pick it up and when I did I found myself falling in love with exploration all over again.… Continue reading →

The Book of Baku by R.L. Boyle

As we’re in the height of the spooky season, I wanted to share my review of The Book of Baku which I read a few weeks ago. I had come across the Japanese myth of the ‘Baku’ a few times and I was curious to see how it would be presented in this novel; I quickly found out that this was a chilling take that still haunts me weeks later.… Continue reading →

Gothic

Horseman by Christina Henry

After yesterday’s review (as well as other Henry reviews of mine…) it will not be a surprise at all that I absolutely loved this novel and devoured it in one sitting. Somehow, each time I read one of Henry’s books they just get better and better which I didn’t know was even still possible.… Continue reading →

Blog Tour – The Tale of the Tailor and the Three Dead Kings by Dan Jones

Ghost stories have been told throughout the centuries, and whilst many may not have quite the same impact on a modern audience than on its contemporary one, there are some that can still evoke fear and unease even all this time later. The Tale of the Tailor and the Three Dead Kings, retold by Dan Jones, is one that still stands the test of time with some gruesome imagery that I’m still thinking about even now (I’m not sure I’ll be able to look at goats in the same way ever again).… Continue reading →

Blog Tour – The Watchers by A.M. Shine

When I first heard about this novel it sounded like the perfect, creepy read for the spooky season. I was especially drawn to the fact that it seemed to have roots in the more traditional, gothic, style of horror which is a particular favourite of mine and Shine certainly did not disappoint!… Continue reading →

Psychological Thrillers

Black Mouth by Ronald Malfi

I absolutely adored Come With Me when I read it last year, so I was not surprised in the slightest that I also devoured Black Mouth in a single sitting. There’s just something about Malfi’s writing that it’s utterly captivating, making it impossible to put the novel down. The pacing, the plot and the characters all work wonderfully together to build the tension and uneasy atmosphere throughout the novel.… Continue reading →

Ghostwritten by Ronald Malfi

Whenever I hear that Malfi has a new book coming out I am always excited, they always sink their claws into me and I can never help myself but devour the entire book as soon as possible as I need to know what happens. The four novellas that make up Ghostwritten have the same level of tension, atmosphere, and impact as one of his novels.… Continue reading →

Now You’re One of Us by Asa Nonami

The entire novel focuses on Noriko as she struggles with learning her place in her secretive family. By keeping the novel limited to Noriko’s perspective this effectively heightened the tense atmosphere in the novel. I especially loved how we witness Noriko develop over the course of the novel.… Continue reading →
