The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1) by Stephen King

“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.” — Stephen King, The Gunslinger     This is my first experience of Stephen King’s work. I am myself surprised that it isn’t one of his pure horror stories, but I also had a feeling I was going to end up exploring the Dark Tower…

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo

MY RATING: ★★★★☆ (3.8) Have you ever got the feeling where you’ve been hungry for a few hours but you wait to come home to get that meal. THAT ONE MEAL you were soooo looking forward to eat. Then, you go home and it’s not there anymore? HOW FRUSTRATING IS THAT. It’s my exact same…

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

    After checking out Ruth Ware’s In a Dark, Dark Wood and appreciating the patent Agatha Christie inspiration in her stories, I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to read her second book, The Woman in Cabin 10. This time, the story essentially takes place on a luxurious cruise ship. How is that possible? Leave it to Ruth…
