Forgotten Places

Forgotten Places

If you like history and historical fiction novels with a hint of romance and a twist at the end this will be a good fit for you. 

Forgotten Places is a story loosely based on true events that happened back in the 1800’s in Van Diemen’s Land which is now Tasmania. An escaped convict Alexander Dalton has been hiding in the wilderness for 11 years, when out of nowhere Grace Ashwell, a nanny and a little girl, Violet, stumble on his hiding spot while on the run themselves.

Behind Closed Doors - Review

Behind Closed Doors - Review

It was just what I needed to get out of my reading slump, and really what motivated me to start writing reviews, again. You might have noticed my blog has been pretty quiet for the past few years. 

Right away I felt a weird vibe from the couple, the husband mainly. Plus from the synopsis it was clear that there was something fishy going on. No one’s life is THAT perfect, and we can clearly see that Grace is not so perfect on the inside, as much as she tries to portray the perfect facade on the outside.

Disturbing and creepy are the first words that come to mind when I think of this book, and that's exactly why I would recommend this book to everyone. First of all, to teach women that creeps are out there and they need to be careful, but also to experience a story told from a perspective that many don't get to see.

REVIEW: IT by Stephen King

REVIEW: IT by Stephen King

I really want to like Stephen King, I do. I have many of his books, but this one was just not my cup of tea. When you write about 10 year old having sex (a girl with about 5 guys) you have lost my interest. Ever since I read that I was grossed out and really wanted to just give up on the book. But then I got the audio book again and listened to it while I was running, if it wasn't for that I would not have finished it.

REVIEW: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I didn't really know what this book was about, I try not to read up a lot on books that I still haven't read. I just but them and then wait for the surprise. Since this book was so popular I just had to buy it, even though I ended up not reading it for a long time.I blame that on having a newborn at the time.

The book is about a missing girl, not a young girl, a married woman who goes missing, and her husband is trying to find her, he is devastated, and tries to uncover her past in order to help bring her back. And that's all I will say.

This book was great, definitely on my top list of books, it was dark creepy and gripping, I was constantly guessing what happened, and at one point I guessed right, but then changed my mind. Definitely kept me hooked. The characters were good enough where I wanted to find out more and more, but I think it's the story itself, the mystery that makes this book so great. The ending might make people angry or disappointed. But no matter how you think it could have ended, this is the only way. Any other ending wouldn't feel right.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes a little mystery, it's not a long book so you don't invest too much time in it if you hate it, but  I doubt you will. And yes, you are supposed to hate the characters.
