    Sep 10, 2017

    (4.5) If you?re looking for a book to keep you awake at night because you NEED to finish it then this is it! Somebody?s going to be murdered at the ball tonight. It won?t appear to be a murder so the murderer won?t be caught. Rectify that injustice and I?ll show you the wa...

    4.5? Do you know how many books it?d taken me to finally use the word, unputdownable? I think I'm more thrilled to have finally said it than actually reading this book. What can I say, I'm a simple girl. The simple pleasures bring me the most joy. But back to the task at hand ...

    3.5 maybe it is just me? But never the less confusing stars??? The concept of this book was really quite brilliant... A little reminiscent of both Life After Life and Ground Hog Day.... with the added little twist of the body swapping.... Admittedly it is holiday time ...

    Stuart Turton has written an extraordinarily original, atmospheric, intelligent and fiendishly complex novel that I really loved! At one level it masquerades as an Agatha Christie style golden age classic crime, and indeed many of the tropes present in that genre are here such as the d...

    ?Now do you see? Escape isn?t to be found at the end of this dirt road; it?s through me. So run if you must. Run until you can?t stand, and when you wake up in Blackheath again and again, do so in the knowledge that nothing here is arbitrary, nothing overlooked, You?...

    3.5 stars ? I have no idea how I actually feel about this one! This was probably one of the most confusing and complex novels that I have ever read. I actually quite enjoyed the premise of this story as it definitely was quite clever and really made me think but in the end I ...

    4.5 stars This book was SO FREAKING GOOD! If you like mystery/crime/whodunnit stories with the little "extra", go read this book. The one advice I would give you is to go into it with an open mind and don't research too much beforehand. I would say it is best to know as little as poss...

    Groundhog Day Meets Agatha Christie was all I needed to hear to be completely, positively intrigued by this book. I had an absolute blast reading this and trying (and failing) to figure things out. Aiden Bishop wakes up in a body that is not his with no memory at all. He learns that he...

    In this novel the main character, Aiden Bishop finds himself in a time loop of the 'Groundhog Day' variety. He is at a country house party for Evelyn Hardcastle who has just returned from Paris after a long period away. Set in the period between the wars (1920/30s) the guests include a...

    See Full review on my blog Obviously, I am like the other reviewers: This book is amazing. The plot is so complicated and full of action, you literally could not stop reading until you learn WHAT THE HELL IS ACTUALLY GOING ON! If I didn't have that unforgettably pleasant n...

    not saying the premise of this sounds fucking amazing but the premise of this sounds fucking amazing thank you to netgalley for sending me an arc, i'm currently crying in about 7 different languages because i'm so excited to read this!!! ? first arc buddy read with my bumblebee...

    What just happened ? Now it's clear that Stuart Turton doesn't mind setting himself a challenge. Keeping track of what the hell is going on is challenging enough as a reader, I cannot imagine the effort and planning it must have taken to put it all together as a writer. Imagine:...

    2.5 very disjointed and disappointing stars. When reading this book, I felt like I needed a road map or a gps system to navigate through the various occurrences happening. It was one of the most confusing books I have ever read and because of this confusion, the message which I thin...

    bloody, bloody, bloody hell. this was the most stunningly unique and outrageously clever novel i've read in a long time, and if i had to sum it up with one sentence, it would probably be "agatha christie on LSD." even the premise in itself was incredible - a man who has eight d...

    DNF @ 75% i feel like im the only one on earth who holds this unpopular opinion AND IM SO DISAPPOINTED but...i feel like i've aged 10 years over the course of reading this book. it had sO MUCH POTENTIAL AND I WAS SO EXCITED TO READ IT BUT its achingly SLOW and there are milli...

    Holy shit, my head hurts. I haven't read a book that made my brain melt like this since Blake Crouch's Dark Matter. And just like in that book it is so satisfying to watch all the pieces come together. This book is a wild mixture of Agatha Christie, Groundhog Day, and Black Mirror. I'm...

    DNF @ 30%. Too strange and confusing to keep my interest. ...

    Nineteen years before the events in this novel, a young boy was killed by a groundskeeper at Blackheath House. Someone else was involved in the crime, but escaped detection. Now, Lord Peter and Lady Helena Hardcastle are opening up Blackheath House again and hosting a party for their d...

    My brain is melting! Devilishly clever and a work of pure f****** genius. I can't even begin to fathom how to review this one without any kind of spoilers so I'm not even going to try. For a start I'm still working through the puzzle that is this enigma - like a rubix cube in boo...

    WTF. I am so surprised I was granted an arc copy, I was so sure I was gonna be rejected on this one. SO EXCITED!! Thank you sweet NetGalley powerful spirit who heard my wants. ...

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a mastercraft in historical fiction, unlike anything I've read since Agatha Christie. Evelyn is going to be killed. Again. Every night her murder goes unsolved, the gala party where she dies restarts and A...

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. A hugely ambitious, intricately plotted book, with some confusing parts! The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is one of those books that has a premise so startling and impressive, that it just begs ...

    This mind-bending body-hopping mystery is like the result of some unholy union between The Bone Clocks, The River of No Return and a Golden Age crime classic. It begins with a man finding himself running through a forest in evening dress, with no idea who or where he is. He remembers n...

    4.5 stars This book was SO FREAKING GOOD! If you like mystery/crime/whodunnit stories with the little "extra", go read this book. The one advice I would give you is to go into it with an open mind and don't research too much beforehand. I would say it is best to know as little as poss...

    Groundhog Day Meets Agatha Christie was all I needed to hear to be completely, positively intrigued by this book. I had an absolute blast reading this and trying (and failing) to figure things out. Aiden Bishop wakes up in a body that is not his with no memory at all. He learns that he...

    In this novel the main character, Aiden Bishop finds himself in a time loop of the 'Groundhog Day' variety. He is at a country house party for Evelyn Hardcastle who has just returned from Paris after a long period away. Set in the period between the wars (1920/30s) the guests include a...

    bloody, bloody, bloody hell. this was the most stunningly unique and outrageously clever novel i've read in a long time, and if i had to sum it up with one sentence, it would probably be "agatha christie on LSD." even the premise in itself was incredible - a man who has eight d...

    Holy shit, my head hurts. I haven't read a book that made my brain melt like this since Blake Crouch's Dark Matter. And just like in that book it is so satisfying to watch all the pieces come together. This book is a wild mixture of Agatha Christie, Groundhog Day, and Black Mirror. I'm...

    My brain is melting! Devilishly clever and a work of pure f****** genius. I can't even begin to fathom how to review this one without any kind of spoilers so I'm not even going to try. For a start I'm still working through the puzzle that is this enigma - like a rubix cube in boo...

    Do you like murder mysteries? Time travel?? Body swapping? Black Mirror?? Then this is the book for you, my friends. I'm not usually the biggest fan of mystery novels - aside from Sherlock Holmes, I haven't read that many. So, about halfway through this book, I was thinking that al...
