    An entertaining and suspensful read that kept me turning the pages but not one for my favourites list. Read more like a YA novel, The night Olivia Fell is partly narrated by Olivia, a teenager, and the mystery surrounding her fall while the other half is narrated by her mom Abi. ...

    4.5 stars. The Night Olivia Fell surprised me. So often when I read thrillers there certainly are twists and turns to contend with, but it's rare that I find one that touches me emotionally as well. This one did, which made it richer than a simple thriller. No one wants the pho...

    *stepping gingerly to avoid all of the plot holes* Alright...on with my review... This is the part where I would normally enter a profound quote from the book, however, as hard as I tried, I could find nothing quotable within this unimpressive prose. I often find myself in d...
