 [Paperback: 280 pages | Publisher: Harper Teen]
Daffodil Franklin has plans for a quiet summer before her freshman year at college, and luckily, she’s found the job that can give her just that: housesitting a mansion for a wealthy couple.

But as the summer progresses and shadows lengthen, Daffodil comes to realize the house is more than it appears. The spacious home seems to close in on her, and as she takes the long road into town, she feels eyes on her the entire way, and something tugging her back.

What Daffodil doesn’t yet realize is that her job comes with a steep price. The house has a long-ago grudge it needs to settle . . . and Daffodil is the key to settling it.

The Whisper Man by Alex North | Book Review

Tuesday, 10 November 2020

{paperback / 389 pages | publisher: celadon Books}

 

"If you leave the door half open, soon you'll hear the whispers spoken
If you play outside alone, soon you won't be going home
If your window's left unlatched, you'll hear him tapping the glass
If you're lonely, sad, and blue, the whisper man will come for you"


"After the sudden death of his wife, Tom Kennedy believes a fresh start will help him and his young son Jake heal. A new beginning, a new house, a new town. Featherbank.

But the town has a dark past. Twenty years ago, a serial killer abducted and murdered five residents. Until Frank Carter was finally caught, he was nicknamed "The Whisper Man," for he would lure his victims out by whispering at their windows at night.

Just as Tom and Jake settle into their new home, a young boy vanishes. His disappearance bears an unnerving resemblance to Frank Carter's crimes, reigniting old rumors that he preyed with an accomplice. Now, detectives Amanda Beck and Pete Willis must find the boy before it is too late, even if that means Pete has to revisit his great foe in prison: The Whisper Man.

And then Jake begins acting strangely. He hears a whispering at his window..."

I picked this book up because a few of my fave book-tubers, raved about Alex North's books and as soon as I was able to pick this book up from The Works in the 3 for £5 book deal, I grabbed the chance. The Whisper Man is North's debut novel and wow, is it a debut novel.

For three years I've posted about the Fenwicks Christmas Window and it's becoming a tradition to go see it every year now. For many years I was never bothered about seeing the window but lately I've been getting more and more excited for festive activities leading up to Christmas Day. For the past two years Fenwicks have had a Paddington Bear and The Snowman on display. If you don't come from Newcastle or can't get down to the window, here is some photos for your viewing pleasure.

CHARMED; 20 YEARS | A TAG

Tuesday, 22 October 2019


Can you believe the original Charmed has been on for more than 20 Years?! I feel so old when I find out how long ago it was since my favourite shows aired. I grew up watching The Halliwells and loved every minute. I still watch reruns had have decided to watch the new reboot, i have aired my thoughts out on Twitter about the reboot at various times but the OG Charmed will forever be the best. Completing this tag really makes me want to rewatch Charmed again. Time to invest in the new Blu Ray's.
