Book Obsessed Introverts

It's no question I'm a fan of books where you have so many questions while reading and you can't quite seem to put your finger on what's really going on and how it will end. The Patient by Steena Holmes was exactly that! What a thrilling ride that was! I was going crazy trying to figure everything out! It's a brilliant novel and I absolutely loved the author's writing style! She even made the therapy sessions gripping. The story is told from multiple POVs, from Danielle's, to someone's memories and the killer's.  My attention was grabbed right from the start and it didn't let go until the very last page. I was completely engrossed in the story and will be adding it to my favorite list for this year for sure. Highly recommend! My rating:  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you to Amazon Publishing and Lake Union Publishing for my gifted copy. Here's a quick synopsis: Danielle Rycroft suspects someone close to her has a dark secret. I...
What a fantastic debut novel by Vanessa Lillie! I'm impressed by how well-developed the characters were, more particularly Devon. As the story progress, the reader gets to learn more about what makes her the way she is as well as the voice in her head. Is it only her internal thoughts or is there something more to it? Little Voices is the kind of book where you think you have things figured out and the author surprises you with every turn of the page. I couldn't put it down! It's easily one of my favorites this year! One thing I particularly connected to was the highlight of postpartum depression. As a mother myself, I have gone through this challenging time and live all the ups and downs of motherhood. Postpartum depression is still a somewhat taboo subject in today's society and I feel like it would be beneficial for mothers to feel confident in reaching out for help if they struggle with PPD. This title is available now, so hurry up and grab yourse...
The Poison Garden was a fun thriller to read on a cold autumn weekend. It's full of suspense and intrigue that keeps the reader on their toes until the last shocking twist. The characters all seemed secretive, troubled or unstable, and as the story develops, we get to know more about their motivations to get "rid" of Elise. A domestic thriller that delves into dark secrets people want to keep to themselves and proves just how easily one can be emotionally and psychologically manipulated.  Fast-paced, eerily atmospheric and entertaining, I recommend this one for fans of thrillers. Available on October 22nd. Thank you to Amazon Publishing and Lake Union Publishing for my gifted copy. My rating:  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Here's a quick synopsis: Elise Watters seems to have it all—a blissful marriage, a gorgeous Victorian home surrounded by lush gardens, and a dream job running her late mother’s herbal boutique. But on the eve of her first wedding anniversary,...

For those who love a book that starts with a bang, this one is definitely one of them! The initial scene opens the story with a deep sense of urgency that pulls the reader right in.  I'm not usually a fan of novels with more than 2-3 POVs but this one was so magnificently crafted that they all blended in and tied together perfectly. I love when the author incorporates a creepy feel to the story and The Grey Sisters had just enough. It truly gave out the feeling that you were being watched by hidden figures in the room. I thought this added even more suspense and creepiness to the story.  As for twists and turns, there are tons! Some were predictable, others were not. I loved trying to figure out what comes next as I was reading along. The characters were well crafted and the reader could really feel their battle for the last spark of hope, even during their darkest days. The determination of the women was transparent and the story ended in a satisfying way.  ...
Bringing Down The Duke is yet another fun rom-com I read this summer.  It had two of the genres I want to read more of mixed together - historical and romance. Just like any other novels from these genres, I went in nervous, but it turned out to be just as good as I expected. The writing was excellent. It was clear and the reader could clearly get a feel for the time period. The main character was a favorite of mine. She has an impressive forward-thinking philosophy without being annoying. The romance was perfect and refreshing. It's an incredibly strong debut novel. It's charming with a touch of feminism and I highly recommend for readers who enjoy both, romance and historical fiction.  Thank you to Penguin Random House Canada for my gifted copy. My rating:  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Here's a quick synopsis: England, 1879.  Annabelle Archer, the brilliant but destitute daughter of a country vicar, has earned herself a place among the first cohort of female student...
One of my goals this year was to read more romance novels and I was lucky enough to receive a few from Penguin Random House Canada . The Matchmaker's List was a cute romance with endearing characters. It was a nice change from my usual thrillers as it was truly an enjoyable rom-com. The characters were fun and interesting to read about and they create a humorous story that will tug at your heartstrings.  I felt for Raina who wanted to pursue her own happiness but at the same time, didn't want to disappoint her grandmother. I feel she really went through a period of growth as she was trying to figure her own path in life.  I loved how there was a lot of humour in this novel, especially on some of the dates Raina goes on. Kind of makes me feel relieved I don't have to take part in this dating lifestyle.  As a debut novel with themes like romance, friendship and the pursuit of happiness, I applaud the author. I liked her writing and I look forward to her fut...
