I do love a good twisty book that keeps you guessing! I received a copy of Picture of Innocence by TJ Stimson from the publisher, I was under no obligation to review the book and all thoughts are my own. I do love a good psychological thriller, especially when it involves families and children. And then there is Lydia, a young girl who did something terrible, but how does she fit into the story? And who did Lydia grow up to be?
Although then sometimes she was. Lydia is an interesting character, the abuse she suffered is not easy to read, but was that why she did what she did? Is evil born or is it made? But I enjoyed reading it and I wanted to know what happened and how things were going to work out. Did I guess the ending? Well, kinda. I got some of it right but not all, it was clever and gave me something to think about and I love a book that does that.
What would I do in that situation? This book is well written, has well formed characters who are surprising and unpredictable. And I love how it made me think, are we born evil or does something make us that way?

Today it is my stop on the mammoth blog tour for Sleep by C. The size of the blog tour is a good indication of how good the authors books are as so many book bloggers want to take part in it.
I received a copy of Sleep by C. Taylor from the publisher, Avon. I was under no obligation to review the book and all thoughts are my own. I have to admit that I would love to escape to a remote Scottish Island, well I think that I would but of course the reality of the escape could be very different to what I imagine it would be like. But I could totally understand why Anna decided to head to the Island of Rum when she becomes convinced that someone is stalking.
A group of guests arrive, each of them seeking their own escape from various things, and looking forward to hiking and exploring the island. But they all find out how remote they really are when a huge storm descends on Rum and the hotel becomes totally cut off from the outside world. I love this premise, in many ways it could be a wonderful experience, but given that this is a book by C. Taylor we know that all is not going to end well for the residents of the hotel. When Anna becomes convinced that her stalker is one of the guests in the hotel her paranoia grows and she, along with the readers, begin to question everyone.

Are one of them really out to kill Anna? I loved reading Sleep, it kept me guessing and wondering and thinking. Each of the guests had an interesting back story that added to the book and I could see why Anna was questioning who each of them really were. It was a clever ending but I would have liked to have know a bit more about what happened after. Overall, Sleep by C. Taylor is a great book.
I am sure that this book would be enjoyed by many fans of psychological thrillers. All Anna wants is to be able to sleep. But crushing insomnia, terrifying night terrors and memories of that terrible night are making it impossible.
