Lock Every Door

5/5 stars This is the first Riley Sager (pseudonym) book I’ve read before, and I’m so glad I did! I finished in about 5 hours and could not put it down. This had just the right amount of suspense and thrill. Add in the paranormal aspects and it’s the perfect psychological thriller for me.  Our … More Lock Every Door

I had many theories about what was happening. Ultimately, … More Never Look Back

City of Girls

3/5 stars It seems I may be alone in this opinion based on all of the raving reviews I read before picking up, City of Girls. Yes, the writing is beautiful. Yes, the vivid character and scenery descriptions transport you back to New York City in the 1940s. But there were several parts in the … More City of Girls
