Quote That Stood Out Most – “The screen goes dark. Another head turns the other way. Quietly. Cruelly. Deliberately. And out of habit.”
Spoiler free review – Firstly I want to say a huge thank you to @darkroomtours, @teambkmrk and @sif.sigmarsdottir for allowing me to be apart of this tour. I was literally hooked from reading the synopsis to this book and couldn’t wait to get my head into it!
For some reason, I had in my head that this book was going to be back dated a little but I was pleasantly surprised. The book is very modern and up-to date and I absolutely adore the Instagram post pages, definitely my favourite addition.
The book immediately introduces us to Hannah and Imogen and I just love their completely different personalities. I found Imogen super interesting because being an influencer is so common now, but I also found Hannah intriguing because I’m more of a Hannah personality.
I was hooked on the first page of the book and just kept devouring it. The author keeps the book so interesting with different twists and turns.
Overall I loved this book. I will definitely buy this author again and I’m super interested to see what next books are coming up 👀.
