I do not really know where to start about this story, it is the most gripping, talented piece of writing I have ever read. It is the best book I have ever read, I just loved it so much!

The first novel Into the Darkest Corner was published by Myriad Editions in February 2011 and was featured on Channel 4’s TV Book Club. It was selected as one of Amazon UK’s Rising Stars and went on to win Amazon UK Best Book of 2011.

The story was partly inspired by Elizabeth’s work as a police intelligence analyst. At the time you had to produce a quarterly report on violent crime and as part of this she read a lot of accounts of domestic abuse. I guess you get a lot of ideas from doing this sort of job. It must be hard though reading about bad stuff all day?

You can buy all the books here.  I will definitely be looking out for another one real soon.

This story did make me think about some dark parts of my past but I read through and just really kept going as I was so engrossed in this story. The constant checking of doors and windows being shut you can really relate to as it makes you feel like that after a scare.

I really did not like her friend Sylvia at the beginning as she did betray Catherine and when your best friend does not believe you then things are bad. She did redeem herself at the end though so that was good.

This is a big book but I just could not stop reading and read well into the early hours as I wanted to know what happens. I give it hundreds and hundreds of stars!

Waking up from a coma to find your husband has sold your house and gone and they are telling you your daughter is dead. Is this a dream or a nightmare, it will keep you awake as you won’t want to put this thriller down. I really liked this style and you are hooked into this mysterious story, plenty of twists and an ending that I never guessed.

This was really different with it taking you to places you have never been, what a brilliant piece of writing and this makes me want to read the previous book called The Chalk Man.

What is making these children react not at all normal, where are they going and what is happening to them. Can it all be stopped or has it gone too far. I loved this and read it very quick as I wanted to know what was happening next all the time.

Can Joe help or stop what is going on when he goes back to his childhood home and the people he never thought he would see again. Who was telling the truth and are people still telling a lie to save themselves. They have all grown up now but what are they hiding?

Very well written with just enough to keep you wanting more and it keeps going like that until the end which I love. I did not guess any of it so that was good and made it really enjoyable. Thank you to Netgalley for letting me read this and here is my honest review. You definitely need to read this.

I was so pleased to see that you could get this series on DVD I thought these shows were brilliant. I loved that they were set in Camden and Camden Market I could wander round there all day, with a few coffee stops. I have just remembered the smells of the food stalls everywhere, they are delicious. You can sit there eating, drinking and watching the lock opening and closing as the boats go through. It is a magical way to spend a day and then you find some bargains to buy on all the stalls everywhere.

Anyway this series is about the witches of today and I found it so funny and entertaining, it also got me thinking about witches as also I have been reading a bit about them lately so maybe they are going through a popular phase. I would like to set some spells on some people, that would be so great!

I do always throw salt over my shoulder as my Nan told me that one. Rosemary by your gate, I could plant some there but not sure what it is supposed to do? I have a lot of Lavender in my garden and I can assure you that I am NOT lucky at all so that has blown my dreams of being a witch and doing some spells.

Still I guess it is all a bit of fun, who would you cast a spell on and why?
