ARC Review: We Told Six Lies by Victoria Scott

Remember how many lies we told, Molly? It’s enough to make my head spin. You were wild when I met you, and I was mad for you. But then something happened. And now you’re gone.

But don’t worry. I’ll find you. I just need to sift through the story of us to get to where you might be. I’ve got places to look, and a list of names.

The police have a list of names, too. See now? There’s another lie. There is only one person they’re really looking at, Molly.

And that’s yours truly.

ARC Review: Little Darlings by Melanie Golding

Lauren’s hopes and dreams of being a new mom are shattered when she encounters a mother’s worst nightmare—someone is threatening to take her children if she leaves them alone. Everyone, from her doctor to her husband, thinks she’s imagining things. From the stark loneliness of returning home after giving birth to the confines of a psychiatric unit, Lauren’s desperation increases as no one will listen to her. Is she mad, or does she know something we don’t?

Loosely inspired by the ghostly folktale “The Brewery of Eggshells,” and giving us a modern take on the idea of changelings, Little Darlings is a taut, gripping read. It reminds us that folk tales do not spring from whimsy; they warn us and teach us, and speak to the fear in us all . . .
