Keeping my ears to the ground to pick up on the latest most popular book doing the rounds of book bloggers. Consistently creating a very positive buzz is the book All The Wicked Girls by Chris Whitaker.

In the two months since the book was first published in August 2017 by Bonnier Zaffre, book blogger after book blogger has highly praised this book. Unfortunately (stupidly) I haven’t read it yet, so I’m totally unbiased. It is however on my TBR list, along with the author’s other book Tall Oaks that was also very popular to put it mildly. Here’s a random selection of book bloggers’ thoughts about All The Wicked Girls.

“All The Wicked Girls is a novel that you will become one with. The characters’ emotions will become your emotions ; Tragedy, grief, sorrow, regret, yet also, hope, self-discovery and atonement. A brooding, intense, incredible read!!”
