I absolutely adored this book! I loved that the podcasts episodes were included as separate chapters. The criminal trial was very explosive. Rachel's investigation was never boring as there was always a new facet to discover. The seaside setting really help set the tone for the novel. I can't wait to read more books by this excellent author!

The Long Walk by Stephen King(Writing as Richard Bachman)

Once again Stephen King did not disappoint!  All the characters were vivid and came alive! As I read each page I was wondering which walker would endure to the end. All the action was described with so much detail that I felt like I was a spectator following along with the walkers as they went from place to place.

Blue Ticket by Sophie MacKintosh

48749867

I really loved this dystopian read!  The lack of control experienced by the women in this story reminded me of the plight of the women in The Handmaid's Tale.  In both stories the women's choices were taken away forcing them to conform to rules set by those in power.  I found the main character especially compelling . The ending was different than I was expecting but it made sense in relation to the story. I would definitely read more books by this excellent author!
