Honestly I feel like my words won't do this book justice, But I'll try anyways. It was one of those "sorry I can't adult today" I'm to busy trying to read fast enough books. I could not put this book down! It was absolutely beautiful written and such a gripping read. You guys know I'm a romance reader at heart but this psychological thriller ticked all the boxes. Do yourself a favor go and put this book on your must read asap TBR, You won't regret it. ...more

A well written book with characters that are so well depicted, they feel real. It was hard to put down, I was so invested in the characters.

It's easy to see where the story is going from the beginning. I found the ending to be predictable but thoroughly enjoyed it anyway! ...more

A Walk at Midnight by local author Alex van Tonder sheds the spotlight on abuse and sexual assault against women. It’s brilliantly written and an important book to put on your reading or book club list.

A Walk at Midnight is a fantastic narrative of what an infinite number of women go through daily. It’s about abuse against women; about powerful men getting away with abusing and sexually assaulting women, purely because they can afford fancy lawyers and PR consultants to sweep things under the ca

I was quickly absorbed with this story and it's hectic subject matter and found myself racing through it to find out what happened but was a tad disappointed at the end as I thought it was a bit far-fetched. ...more
