“Unspoken is a brilliant atmospheric, gothic piece, but at no point does it take itself seriously.The dialogue, especially that of Kami, can be wonderfully witty and sarcastic whilst staying on just the right side of feeling forced… .

I try to get on here occasionally and recommend some good reads! These are books I enjoyed immensely and would thrust into the hands of unsuspecting bookstore buyers if I came across them.

“This was such a fun and easy read! It was super hilarious, and I made the mistake of reading it in public ~ I’m pretty sure that entire train car thinks I’m crazy now… .”
“Unspoken doesn’t make its debut until September, which makes me sad in a way. I’m so anxious for this to be in the hands of readers everywhere! I normally wouldn’t put out a review this early, but I needed to share it with my readers NOW… .”
