I'm a mother, lifelong-student, avid reader, and reviewer. I'll give pretty much anything a shot, but my guilty pleasure is romance, especially if it's dark and full of suspense.

The Lonely - Tara Brown

The Lonely had the potential to be absolutely freaking amazing. However, with that said, I feel that the author dropped the ball. This may be because I have been into darker reads lately, which this book had the potential to be. I also believe that if Brown delved more into those darker aspects of the book it would have felt more complete or well-rounded instead of leaving me feeling as if I'd read two different books – to the point where I stopped and was like ‘wtf, what did I miss?’ I cannot stress enough, that the first half or so of this book was so strong and had SO MUCH POTENTIAL that I actually started preparing myself for a complete and utter mind-fuck, but instead I felt completely let down. It was still an interesting read; I just had such high hopes…
