“Big Little Lies” by Liane Moriarty (2014)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 I started reading Liane Moriarty back in March 2019, and decided to read this particular one so I could watch the show. Plus, the summary drew me into this book (naturally), and I was curious to see what would come out of it. Before reading Big Little Lies, I noticed that a lot of people preferred it to her other novels. I’m not sure … Continue reading “Big Little Lies” by Liane Moriarty (2014)

“Rosemary’s Baby” Conspiracies

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 I started Rosemary’s Baby by reading the actual, physical book first, but then it dawned on me. Is this on Audible? I have to do chores, but I can’t put this down, so I wonder… and alas! It was on Audible, and it was amazing. Mia Farrow (the original actress for Rosemary) narrated the novel and she did it perfectly. Her voice, along with all … Continue reading “Rosemary’s Baby” Conspiracies

“Room” by Emma Donoghue (2010)

A lot of people might not agree with my take on this book because I only made it a measly 75 pages before I decided to mark it a “DNF”. After reading the curious incident of the dog in the night-time by Mark Haddon, I thought I could take this book on, but I just couldn’t, and here’s why: First, I couldn’t get my head wrapped … Continue reading “Room” by Emma Donoghue (2010)

“the curious incident of the dog in the night-time” by Mark Haddon (2003)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Starting off I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to handle this book because of the point-of-view, but it actually came off pretty well. Now, I don’t usually read books from a kids perspective, but since he’s fifteen and a little more matured, I was able to run right through it. Christopher John Francis Boone is quite a character. Living with a mild form … Continue reading “the curious incident of the dog in the night-time” by Mark Haddon (2003)

“Phoenix” by Chuck Palahniuk (2013)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 I don’t usually review short stories, but since this is one involves my all-time favorite author, I thought it was needed. Phoenix isn’t your usual short story either, there’s not really a positive conclusion, and it’s filled with the usual Palahniuk-esque vibes of breaking society’s “guidelines.” I could go further and further into the “inner meanings” of it, but to refrain from letting you all find … Continue reading “Phoenix” by Chuck Palahniuk (2013)

“The Wedding Date” by Jasmine Guillory (2018)

⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Now, I’ve mentioned before that I’m not too keen on romances, and well… this book is one of the prime examples why I’m not. I received this book through PageHabit (a subscription that no longer exists), so I got to read the authors notes throughout the book. However, the notes still didn’t enhance the novel. The only reason I gave this book 3-stars instead … Continue reading “The Wedding Date” by Jasmine Guillory (2018)

“Unbury Carol” by Josh Malerman (2018)

⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Unbury Carol was my first read of 2019, and well – it was kind of a disappointment. With the expectations I had after watching Bird Box, I thought Unbury Carol would be a little more… terrifying. One of my biggest fears is being buried alive whenever my time comes, so I thought this would rattle me even a little, but it just didn’t. The entire book is split … Continue reading “Unbury Carol” by Josh Malerman (2018)

“Nine Perfect Strangers” by Liane Moriarty (2018)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 First, I’d like to point out that I actually read Nine Perfect Strangers before I decided to start reading Big Little Lies. While I’m only 100-some-odd pages into BLL, there have already been striking similarities. BLL focuses around three individuals, while NPS focuses around – well – nine. The writing in general is striking and straight-forward, but I didn’t expect anything less from such a highly recommended author. When I … Continue reading “Nine Perfect Strangers” by Liane Moriarty (2018)
