    There?s almost always a single germ for each of my novels. A moment, a line of poetry, a news story, a piece of junk mail . What happens next is -- a bit odd. I start to hear a voice, or a couple of voices. And these voices draw me through my narrative. I don?t have an outline. I d...

    Under My Skin was a solid 4 stars for me. A psychological thriller that centers around main character Poppy. Poppy is in a bad place-ever since her husband was brutally murdered by some unknown assailant, she has been coping by sleeping very little and taking pills. Worse, most likely ...

    Lisa Unger is a new favorite author for me. This is the third book I've read by her and all of them have been really good! Poppy was a good character who was dealing with the fact that her husband was murdered and the case hasn't been solved. Poppy had a breakdown and had to get help f...

    Talk about a book that will make your head spin!! I will admit for the first bit I was slightly confused but I think that?s mostly due to the fact the Unger is such a fantastic writer that she just drew me into the tangled web that is Poppy?s life so wholly. Once I caught on I was ...

    Lisa Unger has written sixteen novels and it's a travesty that I have only read three of them. Because OMFG this was really good! It literally competed with waiting for the Quebec election results. Not an easy task since I love my politics. Also, whom ever is responsible for selecting ...

    It feels like I haven't finished a book in weeks. Under My Skin had the unfortunate luck of being read during my reading slump and busy work month. This may have contributed to my lackluster feelings about the book; I'm not sure. I do know that I struggled with the first half of the bo...

    I'm a huge Lisa Unger fan, but this one just wasn't my favorite of her novels to date. I found myself a little confused in the first half; I had to go back to sections and double check what I had read which became tedious. It's quite possible I'm over the psychological thrillers that h...
