    Moments – Cara Belner

    I received this book directly from the author, Cara Belner.  This is my first, ever, proper, hold-it-in-your-hands, book that I've received as a book blogger - it'll be kept forever! Luckily, it's a goodie. The story follows Kelly, a college student who feels like she's never really fitted in anywhere.  On starting her second term at college she finally feels confident in her own skin and vows to make this year the year that things change.  Unfortunately for Kelly during her first Frat Party her drink is spiked and she wakes up in a strange bed, in a strange flat with the realisation that she has been raped. It's not…

    Don’t Wake Up – Liz Lawler

    I picked up this book second hand at a charity shop a couple of weeks ago. Having previously heard of the publisher, twenty7, I was keen to read something by one of their debut authors.  With the bold claim of “Over 400 5* reviews from real readers” stamped on the front I had high hopes for ‘Don’t Wake Up’.  I wasn’t disappointed... The story follows Dr Alex Taylor who has experienced a truly terrifying ordeal.  Alex wakes up naked, strapped to an operating table and with drips and ventilators attached to her before being knocked out again by a man dressed as a surgeon.  Waking up later fully clothed in…
