This book sat on my bookshelf for a long time before I finally picked up it and I’m pleased I did.
The cover is what initially drew me to pick up a copy of this book as it’s so different and unusual and you can’t deny how pretty it is.
The plot was paced nicely and the writing style suited me so I was able to read this book quite quickly.
It’s a lovely wholesome and heart-warming book and to see the main character finally get a happy ending, was truly lovely.
I enjoyed this book and the characters in it. A part of me didn’t want the story to finish so I didn’t have to close the book and say goodbye. They quickly become my friends as they grew and developed throughout the story.
In the end it was definitely worth picking up and it was one of my favourite reads of 2017.
I’ve always had a huge love of books set in bookshops, libraries or cosy little cafes and I was not disappointed with this one!
The main character is well developed and fleshed out and so loveable and often relatable too. The love story was sweet and throughout the story my heart hoped everything would work out for her in the end.
I thought the book as a whole was paced really well and the story flowed nicely with a few parts sneakily hidden until just the right moment came along.
The only downside I have about this book is that chapters are huge. I definitely prefer shorter chapters giving me a chance to stop and think about what I just read and what’s currently happened. But overall this was a lovely read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ve now passed it on to my mum to read!
It was definitely the cover of this book that made me really want to read it. The tarot card on the cover really drew me to the book and made me want to find out what it’s about and ultimately read it. I love absolutely anything to do with the paranormal and I’m also an amateur tarot card reader myself so this seemed right up my alley right from the get go.
'The Hanging Girl' is gripping from the very first page and isn’t once predictable. The plot twists have you on the edge of your seat, keeping you turning page after page wanting to know and find out more, and I loved that.
The characters were pretty well developed and some were even likeable and I dare say relatable at times.
I’m not usually a quick reader by no means but “The Hanging Girl” kept me hooked and I managed to read it without two nights. I would definitely read more books from Eileen Cook in the future!
