Blog Tour Book Review – Sleep

Ad | Gifted | Post contains affiliate links

Good afternoon and happy hump day. I am loving the four day week this week, already so close to the weekend again! Although, I am constantly confused about what day it is, anyone else struggling? If you follow me on social media you will remember me posting about reading this while I was in hospital. It is finally time to let you all know what I thought.

Sleep by C. L. Taylor


The Blurb

‘Beware! Sleep does not do what it says on the tin: I was awake until the small hours under its dark and twisty spell.’ FIONA BARTON

‘Extremely creepy, atmospheric and twisty.’ CLAIRE DOUGLAS

’Another cracking psychological thriller from C.L. Taylor. Sleep will keep you up all night.’ MARK EDWARDS

All Anna wants is to be able to sleep. But crushing insomnia, terrifying night terrors and memories of that terrible night are making it impossible. If only she didn’t feel so guilty…

To escape her past, Anna takes a job at a hotel on the remote Scottish island of Rum, but when seven guests join her, what started as a retreat from the world turns into a deadly nightmare.

Each of the guests have a secret, but one of them is lying – about who they are and why they’re on the island. There’s a murderer staying in the Bay View hotel. And they’ve set their sights on Anna.

Seven strangers. Seven secrets. One deadly lie.

Someone’s going to sleep and never wake up…

The million-copy bestseller is back in her darkest, twistiest book to date. Read it if you dare!

What I Thought

I have previously read and thoroughly enjoyed The Fear by C. L. Taylor (red my review here) so when I was contacted about reviewing her new book I jumped at the chance.

As I said, I read this when I was in hospital and it for sure kept me entertained. I loved the mix of characters that were bought together by Taylor – all broken in their own ways. Although I had an inkling about who was the killer, I was kept guessing until the end, as I couldn’t piece together all of the story properly for it to make sense by myself!

There were plenty of twists and turns and I loved the main themes of guilt and mental illness. The sub plot story line was also good. I loved the fact that Taylor wrapped that up quite a way from the end of the book, as it left me guessing even more about what the rest of the book had in store.

Another well written thriller from Taylor which I highly recommend to all…if you dare read it!

Where To Buy

I am looking forward to more books from C. L. Taylor and also want to catch up on some of her older titles. Have you ever read any by her? If so, what’s your favourite? Let me know in the comments below,
