In a Nutshell – The Outsider by Stephen King

Anyone who’s avidly read King over the years will know all too well that his novels can be extremely hit and miss. It’s simply just how it is for a lot of us. Having said that, I’m always in an open mindset when entering new SK work; which way will

In a Nutshell – Sleep by C.L. Taylor

Seeing as I powered through this in just over 24 hours, I’d say it was one heck of a read! An instant 5 star read, right from the opening page. Nothing was as it seemed AT ALL. I thought I’d gotten something sussed out and then BOOM, curve ball. The

In a Nutshell – Others by James Herbert

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Sunday. I’m still sat in my PJs at 11:45am and it’s glorious. So here’s something a bit different for you guys; something that I’d like your opinion on. I’ve been writing short and to the point book reviews on Goodreads for AGES now. I
