Standalone Sunday | 27/11/2016


Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme created by wonderful Megan @bookslayerreads.

There is one simple rule: each Sunday we pick one stand alone novel (not part of a series) that we love or recommend.




An accident. A secret. The truth.

Something is wrong with Samantha McCallister. Her baby brother is dead, and she has only one memory of the accident: the canned version her parents impressed upon her. But piece by piece, Sam struggles to make sense of it.

Cast aside by her self-involved family, Sam seeks out a friendship with the next-door neighbor, Hazel, until Hazel inexplicably goes missing, leaving nothing but a note and a jar of jam.

Determined to uncover the truth about Hazel’s disappearance, Sam finds out more than she bargained for. Bizarre episodes and nightmares consume her, vicious and unstoppable.

Meanwhile, an adolescent muse moves into Hazel’s abandoned home. Sam is immediately drawn to him—discovering the beginnings of true love—when the unthinkable occurs. Sam is alienated to a world in which she no longer feels she belongs. Try as she might, Sam cannot escape these nightmares or the truth behind them—the truth that lies in the Limbo Tree.

Brilliantly crafted, shimmering with uncertainty, The Limbo Tree is as mystical as it is moving.



A new release, and a debut novel. A YA contemporary novel about a girl who tries to figure out what happened to her.

I just finished reading this new release. I really liked it. There are so many twists and turns, and the ending will surprise everyone – it’s not what you would expect by reading the first half, not even 3/4 of it. It’s a really good book.

This book is still available for request on Xpressobooktours. You can ask for it here.

    1. It is a great book! I added my review on this page (My Review button), if you and others want to read it.
      I can’t say too much about this one, because it has so many turns and twists, that I will spoil it and ruin its unpredictability ! Hehe

      I think it’s still up on Xpressobooktours if you want to read it! Request it from them 🙂
