Diving Down My TBR Pile, Vol. 1

I was going through my Drafts because apparently, it has ballooned to 124 posts and I didn't even notice until today. I already trashed some of them but this particular post caught my eye. I don't know why it's in my Drafts because upon checking, I already published that post back in 2018. Not sure … Continue reading Diving Down My TBR Pile, Vol. 1

No Cheers for The Cheerleaders

The Mystery Week on Goodreads ended yesterday (or earlier today, I'm not sure anymore). And my Mystery Week ends today, with this post about The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to squeeze in one more mystery novel before my self-imposed deadline because Sadie was still looming over my head … Continue reading No Cheers for The Cheerleaders

Then She Was Gone was A Surprise

I'm gonna be honest. I'm not really a big fan of British novels, for various reasons. For starters, the "accent" in my head while I'm reading is not pretty. I try to avoid reading it with an accent but since I'm fully aware that they're British, it's a bit hard. Plus, there are instances when … Continue reading Then She Was Gone was A Surprise

Sadie is for ‘The Girls’

Before anything else, Sadie is not your usual mystery, suspense-thriller novel. It's not the kind that's longing for a big reveal. It's basically a true crime but fiction. Although you may not know it at the time yet or maybe you're in denial (just like I was), you already know the ending. Trigger warning. Trigger … Continue reading Sadie is for ‘The Girls’

Mystery Week Lives On with ‘If You’re Out There’

Curious. The whole time I was reading this, I was nothing but curious. Intensely curious? Can you even say that? Well, if you can, that's what I was. I slept last night after finishing half of the book and at some point during my sleep, I think I had dreamt of this. More like I … Continue reading Mystery Week Lives On with ‘If You’re Out There’

Never Never… Seriously

I haven’t finished—started, actually—a mystery novel after Verity but since that book reminded me of the disaster that is this series, I’m gonna talk about this instead. I read the books waaaay back in 2016, though, but it feels like it was just yesterday (now that it was unearthed from the depths of my memory). … Continue reading Never Never… Seriously

‘Verity’ Haunted My Dreams

Last night, after an entire day of basically scrolling through this book on my phone (I honestly do not miss physical books, don't hate me), I finally finished it. And the whirlwind of emotions that came after were just as intense as the ones I felt while I was reading it. Imagine, I actually dreamt … Continue reading ‘Verity’ Haunted My Dreams

Two Can Keep A Secret… If One is Dead

Last week, I found out that Mx Karen wrote a sequel to One of Us is Lying, a Young Adult Mystery novel that I loved and read back in 2018. Needless to say, I was excited. But after having read the book, all I felt was extreme disappointment. It wasn't at all what I was … Continue reading Two Can Keep A Secret… If One is Dead
