BLOG TOUR: All The Lonely People by David Owen // Review


Title: All The Lonely People by David Owen

Rating: ★★★★

Release: 10th January 2019

Synopsis: Everyone tells Kat that her online personality – confident, funny, opinionated – isn’t her true self. Kat knows otherwise. The internet is her only way to cope with a bad day, chat with friends who get all her references, make someone laugh. But when she becomes the target of an alt-right trolling campaign, she feels she has no option but to Escape, Delete, Disappear. With her social media shut down, her website erased, her entire online identity void, Kat feels she has cut away her very core: without her virtual self, who is she? She brought it on herself. Or so Wesley keeps telling himself as he dismantles Kat’s world. It’s different, seeing one of his victims in real life and not inside a computer screen – but he’s in too far to back out now. As soon as Kat disappears from the online world, her physical body begins to fade and while everybody else forgets that she exists, Wesley realises he is the only one left who remembers her. Overcome by remorse for what he has done, Wesley resolves to stop her disappearing completely. It might just be the only way to save himself.divider-2461548_1280A moving book focusing on loneliness, social media and how the rise of the internet can quickly take over your life.

Ten Lords A Leaping Book Tag!

Hi everyone!

Long time no see eh? If you hadn’t seen my tweets – I’d decided instead of doing Blogmas this year, I was going to take a break from blogging as it was getting a little much for me. I was starting to struggle a lot more with my mental health, and I needed to take a break.

I’m still on a kinda hiatus (I’ll return fully in January!), but I really wanted to do some Christmas book tags before it’s over!

My lovely Sarah from Book Hooked Nook created her own book tag, and tagged me in it! Thank you Sarah! The images of the questions she also created – go give her some love!

Let’s go!divider-2461548_1280

Stocking - a book that is full of surprises.
