Book Review: The Tall Man


The Tall Man

The Tall Man by Phoebe Locke ★★★★☆

Genre: Thriller

Published: 2018

Pages: 352

Publisher: Wildfire

The wonderful Griffin Books passed this proof on to me for review. If you’re ever in the Penarth or Cardiff area, be sure to check out their wonderful independent bookshop. They also put on loads of bookish events.


Q2 Book Haul

I’m currently challenging myself to buy less books by sticking to certain rules (which you can find here). I’ve not completely stuck to it this quarter, but I’ve not gone too wild either.

Books I’ve Bought

I read a further 12 books which I owned, and I also un-hauled 6. So that means I’m allowed to buy 6 books this quarter. I ended up buy 7, not great but could have been worse! I’ve actually already read 3 of them as well, which I feel like makes it better somehow.

1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2018

I’ve had three 5* reads so far this year and all three have been very different books

Bird Box by Josh Malerman was incredibly creepy and has made me want to read more horror/thrillers. Red Sister by Mark Lawrence sucked me right into this new world. And The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed is an incredibly powerful story everyone should read.
