*BLOG TOUR* The House Mate – Nina Manning ★★★★

Blurb; The perfect life? …Or the perfect lie?

When Regi moves into her new houseshare, she’s ready for a clean slate. A new home. A new routine. A new identity…

Desperate to escape the shadow of her past that follows her everywhere she goes, Regi finds the ideal distraction in the perfect lives of others on social media.

But as innocent scrolling turns into an unhealthy obsession, Regi will soon learn that seeking perfection comes at a price…

My Review; Straight away I was intrigued and hooked! The story focuses on Regi who is the eldest of her housemates attending uni! She has a form of OCD and something from her past is haunting her… But what?

It’s a bit of a wierd story for me because it flicks between the present and her past. But I didn’t expect the outcome that happened at all, the thing that was haunting her I thought it was far worse than it was. For me it was more of a mystery than thriller… A really good read, I did enjoy it. I was just trying to figure Regi out for most of the story! Different. Unique. Brilliantly written. Page turner and a lovely ending. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.

A little message.. Please read.

I thought I should put up a little post because I have been struggling with my reading a lot lately. I’ve tried my best with my tours ive committed too. But im struggling. So if I ask for a content/extract please don’t think im an idiot or one of those bloggers. I’m having a hard time trying to keep ontop of life, school and covid situation. My mind just cant focus on ANYTHING at the moment except kids and normal life… Surviving basically. I am so sorry. But I will not give up trying with books. They have been my escape for sooo soo long and I cannot lose that. I won’t. I refuse. So please bare with me. Thank you. ❤ – Between the pages book club.
