I must start this review with an enormous apology to both the tour organizer and the author. I was supposed to post it as part of a blog tour WEEKS ago... I thought I did, too, but since it was my hiatus, and my head was filled with everything life (and death... and also, work. A lot of work.) , I didn't check it properly. Turns out, it went out completely blank. Unfortunately I only noticed it days later, in between two shifts, and I only had time to take it down... I couldn't review it until now. Now, before anyone freaks out: I do not think that this was a real wordpress problem. I had troubles with my internet connection at the time, I used my smartphone to write posts, and what supposedly happened is that my phone lost the connection when the post should have been saved online, and... well, it wasn't. I didn't notice it because I was in a hurry. I'm very sorry about all this... (This happened with a couple of other posts two. They come later again...) So, let's talk about the book now!
I've seen so many reviews of this book I can't even count! It seems like everybody has been reading 'Little Darlings', Melanie Golding's debut novel. I had no idea this was gonna be such a hit when I requested it months ago, but now I'm very happy I did (and got approved), because now I feel like I'm part of the conversation! 😀 This book really has a unique touch added to its thrillery-horrory basics, and though because I had to stop reading it several times because life was happening, I enjoyed it very much and it sucked me in right away every time I got back to it.
I know a lot of you have already read this book (especially since in Australia - where it's also set - it was published earlier this year) and if I can believe Goodreads, many of you want to read it in the (near?) future. I only saw very few bad ratings/reviews, everybody seems to be liking it, so I was very excited to get to it myself!
This is my stop in the blog tour for 'One Last Prayer for the Rays', and I have to tell you that I'm so excited about this book! Of course, I expected it to be good, otherwise I wouldn't have wanted to participate in the tour, but it was absolutely great! I enjoyed it very much. And that's pretty much to say, because when I started reading I wasn't even in the mood for reading a thriller (I just had to do it for the tour, because for some unexpected reasons, I didn't have time later), and guys, I am a huge mood-reader! This book managed to get me in the mood for reading its kind, and that's a huge achievement. So, here it is: this is my blog tour post of a 5-star rated book! 😉
My second book by T. C. Wescott, and one in holiday spirit! I was so excited to read it a week before Christmas. Huge mug in my hand, hot beverage to drink, snow falling outside... it was PERFECT!
A soft blanket, a hot beverage, a nice autumn day and a cozy mystery set in my beloved Paris... it's all set to a wonderful reading time! Or so I thought...
I'm always a huge fan of mysteries but I feel like I read more crime/mystery/thriller books in the autumn... maybe it's the cold days, longer nights, the whole atmosphere... Anyways, 'Still Lives' is another mystery book I read this autumn, and here are my thoughts on it. Grab a coffee, sit, read, and maybe then we can even discuss it! 😉
