The Guest List by Lucy Foley

The Guest List by Lucy Foley

I read Lucy Foley's first novel, The Hunting Party* (review here) roughly around this time last year and loved it. When I heard about The Guest List I was excited but unsure how it could possibly be better than her first. Spoiler, it was. I read most of it in a frenzy over two days desperate not only to find out who had died but also who had…

Scar Tissue* Blog Tour

Scar Tissue* by Ollie Ollerton

Firstly, a huge thank you to Tracy and the Compulsive Readers team for having me on this blog tour.

She craves sex seemingly to be a form of satiated (not sure if emotionally or physically) but…

In the Miso Soup by Ryu Murakami

In the Miso Soup by Ryu Murakami

I'd picked this up on a whim from work after spending so many years, literally years, walking past it picking it up and putting it back on the shelf.  I finally bought it, read it and I'm not entirely sure what I just read.  Hand on heart I enjoyed the book, the writing was very gripping as were the characters but it got very strange. To the point…
