Becoming A Book Blogger

One of the reasons why I love blogging is that you can keep reinventing yourself. I’m a person who has many interests and when I decided that I’ll start a fashion blog, I didn’t think that a year down the line, London Damsel will be less about fashion and more about books. But you know what? That’s OK.

While I love fashion (and Ben can attest to that seeing his wardrobe space is shrinking), books are the thing I spend most of my free time with. Again, that’s alright with me, especially since some studies showed that reading can prolong your life by two or so years. At this rate it seems I may actually end up living forever.

Time To Get Stuck In Psychological Thrillers

Crime and thriller were always one of my favourite genres, so I didn’t hesitate when it came to purchasing B A Paris’s Behind Closed Doors. It promises to be “[The] psychological Hitchcock-type thriller [that] will keep haunting you.” And you can win a free copy if you keep reading and join in my giveaway that closes on 25th March 2017 at midnight.

How To Review a Psychological Thriller Without Spoilers

Reading the blurb you get the gist, all is not as it seems. Jack is a handsome, dedicated, successful lawyer and Grace is a perfect wife. But getting to know her is almost impossible. Jack is always by her side, she doesn’t answer the phone and their house is surrounded by high walls and gate. Perfect marriage it is not.

Despite knowing what we’re getting ourselves into, the book is still filled with enough suspense to make us keep turning the pages until our eyes are bloodshot and dry. And sometimes this is what we want from a book. Reviewing it is a bit more difficult though. Mostly because I can’t comment on the storyline too much and neither do I want to spoil your learning about characters.

My Thoughts On Behind Closed Doors

This isn’t a fast-paced psychological thriller that keeps you wondering who’s done it. You know who’s the victim straight away. But you do wonder how it got to this stage. You also want to know what happens next.

I was infuriated with Grace, who seemed to “calmly” accept what was happening to her. But the more you read, the more you realise what a dire situation she’s really in. You start feeling her desperation and inability to change her prospects.

This is a book that awakens a lot of emotions. You’re consumed with hatred for a character as I’ve never experienced before. There are moments in the book when you know what’s about to happen and end up feeling completely helpless because you can’t change the course of the action.

The story does at times feel a bit unrealistic, but thinking about the society we live in, I don’t find it too surprising that very few people would become suspicious. We seem preoccupied with our own lives and don’t spare much thought for other people’s.
