Book review: Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney

3/5 stars Audible version, narrated by Stephanie Racine. This was a well-written book, and should by all rights be a 4 star review, but for me personally it just wasn’t that engaging, which is a personal preference thing, but that’s what I’m writing about – so it only gets a 3. A very brief summary…

Book review: You Are Not You by Simon Rosenberg

2/5 stars So… Thanks to Netgalley and the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Book review: The Good Samaritan by John Marrs

4/5 stars. Trigger warning: if you struggle with suicidal thoughts, DO NOT read this book. I know at another time of my life I would not have dealt well with the level of detail regarding suicide and related thoughts in this book. Maybe the above goes without saying as the story centres around Laura, who…
