Psychopaths Anonymous – Will Carver ★★★★★

Blurb; Maeve has everything. A high-powered job, a beautiful home, a string of uncomplicated one-night encounters. She’s also an addict: A functioning alcoholic with a dependence on sex and an insatiable appetite for killing men. 

When she can’t find a support group to share her obsession, she creates her own. And Psychopaths Anonymous is born. Friends of Maeve. 

Now in a serious relationship, Maeve wants to keep the group a secret. But not everyone in the group adheres to the rules, and when a reckless member raises suspicions with the police, Maeve’s drinking spirals out of control. 

She needs to stop killing. She needs to close the group. 

But Maeve can’t seem to quit the things that are bad for her, including her new man…

My Review; Huge fan of Will’s previous books so I knew what I was getting myself into. But I had to grab this one quick due to Melanie’s Reads review. Absolutely brilliant review and a brilliant read. I wasn’t disappointed at all. Its amazing. Highly recommend. A must read. I devoured this.

But warning… It is extremely dark, brutal, murder, death, descriptive and contains alot of sex. All part of being a psycho woman I suppose. It is not a light read and does include alot of alcohol and AA meetings. I was turning the pages for fun from the first page to the last I was hooked. Will she ever stop killing? Probably not. Will she be caught? Unlikely. Very smart woman.

One I won’t forget for a long time. One that’s going into my top ten reads of the year. A well deserved five stars from me.

*BLOG TOUR* This is how we are human – Louise Beech ★★★★★

Blurb; When the mother of an autistic young man hires a call girl to make him happy, three lives collide in unexpected and moving ways … changing everything. A devastatingly beautiful, rich and thought-provoking novel that will warm your heart.

My Review; This is my absolute favourite book of Louise’s yet! Stunning. Perfection. Beautiful. Emotional. I bloody loved it all. I will shout about this book for a long time. It’s a must read and a must buy. It has gone straight into my top reads of the year.

It’s beautifully and brilliantly written. I devoured it. The chapters are short. I fell in love with Sebastians character, he is just so freaking adorable. We get to see his world in this story. We get to see how he is treated by others, his feelings and his thoughts. He’s a clever chap. It’s a thought provoking story but also one where we see him change and grow.

You can tell the author has put a lot of time, thought and research into this book, by basing it on a true story she had to get it right. Absolutely stunning. Cannot recommend it enough. A well deserved five stars and more. Buy it you will not regret this one. A story that will remain in my heart forever.

*BLOG TOUR* Smoke Screen – Jørn Lier Horst & Thomas Enger ★★★★

Blurb; When the mother of a missing two-year-old girl is seriously injured in a suspected terrorist attack in Oslo, crime-fighting duo Blix and Ramm join forces to investigate the case, and things aren’t adding up … The second instalment in the addictive, atmospheric, award-winning Blix & Ramm series.

Oslo, New Year’s Eve. The annual firework celebration is rocked by an explosion, and the city is put on terrorist alert.

Police officer Alexander Blix and blogger Emma Ramm are on the scene, and when a severely injured survivor is pulled from the icy harbour, Blix instantly recognises her as the mother of two-year-old Patricia Semplass, who was kidnapped on her way home from kindergarten ten years earlier … and never found.

Blix and Ramm join forces to investigate the unsolved case, as public interest heightens, the terror threat is raised, and it becomes clear that Patricia’s disappearance is not all that it seems…

My Review; Book two in the brilliant Alexander Blix and Emma Ramm series. This had me hooked it’s a current crime that also connects to one years back! Took me a while to understand it all and it’s a major woah! Why would they do that? Unexpected outcome. Shocking. Twisted but also clever… Or so they thought.

I still loved Emma’s character in this book. She’s a journalist but also a very clever and at times one step ahead of the police woman. Determined. Strong. Brave. She wants answers as much as the police do. However, in this book things get personal for her with the loss of a loved one as a result. It’s an addictive read. I wanted answers myself. Very clever plot with an ending that makes you want more… A huge explosive ending. I loved it all. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for this series. Exciting.
