    *safe part of the review with no spoilers* What a ripper debut. I am not exaggerating when I say this book made my heart pound. The suspense was excellent. It kept me guessing all the way to the reveal. Sarah Epstein made me totally paranoid, I couldn?t trust any of the characters!...

    Have you ever read a book where you have really despised a character? found her completely unlikeable? Look no further than Tasha?s mother. Awful woman. Dreadful. Wanted to reach into the book and tell her to actually care about her daughter. Aside from that, this was certainly a pag...

    RTC. A Melbourne author's debut novel about not being able to trust your own mind, and wondering whether it was yourself or your imaginary friend who perpetrated bad acts? Yes, please! So many times while reading this book, I wondered where the author had been lurking when she re...

    Trigger warnings: mental health, kidnapping, animal cruelty, assault, fire. The second I read the blurb for this book, I knew I had to read it. YA thrillers are few and far between, and this one sounded like a doozy. And, for the most part, it was. I liked the characters, the friend...

    Trigger warnings: child abuse, drug use, animal cruelty, mental illness A fantastic, deliciously creepy read from an unreliable narrator who is being haunted by her childhood imaginary friend. The mystery constantly kept me guessing and I loved the psychologist reports from the past...

    Wow I don't read psychological thrillers all that often but this one was great, it was very intense and kept me up well past my bedtime. I was on edge through a lot of this, my empathy with Tash was strong and I wondered as did she, what was the truth? At times I wanted to skip to t...

    It?s often difficult to accurately recall just how subjective teenage experience can be. We all like to think we grow up with increasing sense of awareness about ourselves, about our place in the world and the people have around us. But so much of childhood is constructed out of frac...

    This was excellent. I had my eye on this book ever since I heard the premise. An imaginary friend that might not be imaginary plus an unreliable narrator .... count me in! The minute my hold came through from the library, I ignored all my other library books and read this in on...

    Okay and WOW this one definitely glued my entire face to the page. It's seriously one of those thrillers were I was like, "Eh I'll read a few chapters before working on stuff" and then it's like an hour later and I'm flipping pages anxiously after shouting at the sun a bit and checking...

    There was a lot of hype surrounding this book, but I think it raised my expectations too high. The tar was good, but not perfect. I felt like the plot kept stopping and starting, like a car in traffic, getting a clear run, only to run into a red light again. Until the climax, which...

    Small spaces is a solid thriller that deals with a girl who can?t quite figure out of what she saw as a child, was real, or all made up in her head. This novel follows Tash, a young girl who witnessed another girl be abducted. At the time she told the police it was someone named...
