  1. 3.5 stars.I FINALLY FINISHED A BOOK AFTER BEING IN THE WORST READING SLUMP EVER Review on my channel coming soon


  2. I don t know why I haven t learned my lesson about reading books that claim to be the next Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train Why do I keep doing this to myself I only end up disappointed.I have to wonder if the person that wrote the blurb for this book has even read either of those books I would have to say not, because there is no comparison Aside from the first few chapters, there is nothing surprising about this plot There is no shocking revelation or exceptional plot twist that makes this a [...]


  3.

  4. Update 10 23 16 Kindle book 2.99 Not sure for how long MILD SPOILERS EXCERPT A dead bolt has a very specific sound Lily was an expert at recognizing certain sounds the creak of the floorboards signaling his arrival, the mice scurrying across the concrete in search for food But Lily always braced herself for the sound of the dead bolt, listening as metal scraped against the metal The lock as beginning to rust, so it always took him several tries But inevitably, she would hear the click, the sound [...]


  5. As the story opens Lily and her daughter Sky are being held captive in the basement of a cabin set deep in the woods Their captor has, for the first time in eight long years, neglected to lock the door Ever apprehensive that this may be just another, in a long list of tests that Rick, her captor, has set for her, Lily gathers up Sky and takes her first shaky step toward freedom.Soaked in fear and swimming in adrenaline, once Lily is able to get her bearings she realizes that she has been close t [...]


  6. Good idea, failed execution.The book felt like one of those Lifetime dramas, all overwrought and ridiculous The multitude of voices felt rushed and superficial, not one character behaved in a realistic fashion, everyone seemed most concerned about their love lives, the whole thing was drawn out too long.If anything, it was rather pointless The strapline said the escape being just the beginning Yeah, it is The he s arrested Then another thing spoiler but not really because you can see it coming T [...]


  7. 1.5 starsSo this is how the book was described For fans of Gone Girl and Girl on the Train, BABY DOLL is the most tense thriller you will read this year.Sounds like a winner, right WRONG This was not a thriller, let alone tense It doesn t have any correlation to Gone Girl or Girl on The Train in any way shape or form.This is a the author s first book, and you can read the signs throughout Underdeveloped characters, sophomoric writing style, and pointless story lines just made this a mess for me [...]


  8. Baby Doll had so much promise and I was really excited to start reading it The synopsis made it sounds fabulous I quickly felt that the book was not giving me the buzz factor that a book in this genre should.A young woman has been held captive, tortured, raped and beaten against her will by a man she should have been able to trust Locked away for years one day she realises she can run for her freedomd she does.The story then concentrates on how things are with her integrating back with her famil [...]


  9. Thank you to Netgalley and Random House UK, Cornerstone for my ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review Oddly enough, this book begins AFTER the main event is over and done with that event being Lily s abduction some eight years earlier Although we don t have in depth details of her time in captivity, we know that she has been both physically, and mentally abused during that time, and has also given birth to her daughter Sky, who was fathered by her captor.The opening chapter is where we fir [...]


  10. I have desperately been wanting to read Baby Doll since it came out last year and was over the moon to win a copy on Twitter this week until I started to read the reviews I was very disappointed to read that so many people didn t enjoy it So the only way to find out for myself was to read it straight away I know now where most people are coming from I too would have liked to read about Lily s time in captivity being the dark and twisted person I am especially when she refers to the training per [...]


  11. Lily has been held captive for eight years She has been raped, beaten and mentally abused She has a daughter, Sky, fathered by her abductor Then one day to her astonishment, she finds the door unlocked Still fearful, Lily and her daughter escape the ghastly basement in which they have been imprisoned You might think that from this point that Lily s life would get so much better Not so, there is further turmoil awaiting her.On returning to her family home, Lily finds things have changed quite dra [...]


  12. This is the thriller after the thriller Most books end with the hostage escaping her torturer s clutches, but that s where this one starts This is about what happens when a victim returns home to people who have changed in her absence and how they adjust to how she s changed This is what happens after the prayers are answered bring my daughter sister friend home Because it s never just as simple as coming home.Lily spent eight years trapped in a basement by a sadistic pedophile The only things t [...]


  13. My review of Baby Doll is now up on Fresh Fiction To say that I was blown away by this book is an understatement I was hooked from the first page and I could hardly put down the book You can read the whole review here


  14. Hollie Overton is a really natural author, her books seem to flow and grasp me in.This bookBaby Dollwas no exception.We have a young girl who was kidnapped by this man We later get to know how this came about and who by To imagine being kept in one room and being used for all purpose like a baby Doll by this man is unthinkable.But this is what she had to endure.Its an intense read at times, sometimes mellows out in its telling of it, but it allowed me to get breath until it gathered momentum ag [...]


  15. Overall, I was disappointed Held captive for eight years, Lily has grown from a teenager to an adult in a small basement prison Her daughter Sky has been a captive her whole life But one day their captor leaves the deadbolt unlocked.This is what happens next her twin sister, to her mother, to her daughterd to her captor It was all there the plot sounded great, it held so much promise But the treatment the plot received was superficial Not at any point did I feel connected to any of the character [...]


  16. Lily has been held captive for the past eight years but now her captor has made a mistake and Lily is able to get free While she was in captivity she had a daughter who is now six and Lily wants nothing than to keep her daughter safe and return home to her family Showing up after eight years of being missing it s not easy for Lily or her family to deal with the aftermath of the kidnapping This is the story of what happens once Lily returns home to find her twin sister is now with Lily s high sc [...]


  17. Going into this book I saw reviews stating anything from a disappointing read, to this being just like gone girl, so I did not know what to expect The synopsis on the back of the book was enough to peak my interest so I decided to go for it And boy am I glad that I did I have not read the book Room, but I have seen the movie, and I can only imagine that this book is inspired by that story or vice versa because they were eerily similar With that being said I loved both stories and really enjoyed [...]


  18. Baby Doll was a pretty fast read However, it was also incredibly bland The first few chapters instantly grabbed my attention Then, the story fizzled out It got predictable and, overall, not that enjoyable I was rolling my eyes and cringing the characters dialogue This book felt like it was trying too hard It could have been much better I m honestly not quite sure why I chose to read this as I didn t enjoy Gone Girl, a book it s compared to in the description.


  19. Firstly I d like to thank Netgalley and Random House UK, Cornerstone for the opportunity to read this book BABY DOLL is the most tense thriller you will read this year no it isn t.1.5 starsI was looking forward to giving this a read, it sounded like an exciting thriller woman escapes from her captor and now she s trying to rebuild her life and future But it doesn t really start out that way everything kind of falls into place for Lily in the first few pages and so you think, is this going to be [...]


  20. This book begins when a young woman, held captive for eight years, and her daughter, fathered by her captor and abuser, manage to escape It is bound to invite comparison with Room I much preferred this Lily and her daughter, Sky, escape when their captor makes a mistake and doesn t bolt the door Happily ever after Not likely Lily s twin, Abby and her mother, Eve, have been so deeply affected by her disappearance that their own lives have been changed almost as much as hers I enjoyed the fact tha [...]


  21. This book could have been been a lot better in my opinion It wasn t bad and I didn t throw it across the room, it was just ok I know it s received different kinds of reviews, so don t be discouraged about reading it if it sounds like you would enjoy it The story line is good, just not realistic in places I don t believe someone could go through what the main character did, and then take up life like she did It just didn t work for me.


  22. BABY DOLL is sold as something which would appeal to fans of Paula Hawkins and Gillian Flynn a tag that seems to be stamped on all new psychological thrillers these days In any case, I was expected, if nothing else, to be gripped by a creepily engaging story Unfortunately, this feeling vacillated quite a bit The book is told in various POVs and certain ones are definitely interesting than others, leading me to lose interest in chunks of the book, while it picked up for others Also, while obviou [...]


  23. This book gripped me from the start and kept me hooked all along Although it wasn t a classic and there were a few holes in the plot, I still enjoyed it.Lily has been held captive for eight years and now she seizes an opportunity to escape with her daughter Sky Lily was kidnapped by Rick, a local teacher who for the last eight years has abused Lily both sexually and mentally while keeping her locked up On escaping she manages to get back home where she finds her family has carried on without her [...]


  24. Had to DNF this one at 60% hence no rating the writing is great by the way but the story did not grab me personally I liked the original premise but for ME it was heavy on melodrama I think this will be a stand out read for a lot of lovers of pyschological thrillers who like something a bit different Sadly for whatever odd reason did not resonate with my reading head.


  25. Find this and other Reviews at In Tori LexI was concerned when I started this book because there was ALOT of exposition within the first few chapters But the changing of perspectives in the novel and suspense sucked me in The novel rotates between the perspective of Lily the protagonist, her twin sister Abby, Eve her mom and Rick her captor The multiple perspectives worked well because they were mostly between the two sisters The author did a great job of making me care and root for Lily and Abb [...]


  26. I was a bit wary about this book when I started to read it I didn t read any other reviews on , but had noticed a string of 2 stars so was a bit worried about it I have to say though that, with some reservations, I did enjoy this fast paced story about Lily and her six year old daughter Sky At the very start of the read Lily manages to escape from the dungeon in which she has been kept captive for the past 8 years and we follow her return to daily life Whilst her family have always loved her, mi [...]


  27. 3.5 stars Lily has held captive for eight years in a small basement prison Her daughter Sky has been held captive all her life One day Lily Sky get the lucky break Lily has waited for her captor has forgot to lock the door when they left What happens next to her twin sister, to her mother, to her daughter and to her captorIn some instances this book is predictable The story does get a bit flat in the middle but apart from that it is a decent read.I would like to thank NetGalley, Random House UK, [...]


  28. YyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaawwwwwnnnnnnnnnnYou too might just get to yawn that extravagantly should you decide to read this very derivative, watered down version of Room You too could have the pleasure of meeting some creep who keeps a girl in a basement for a long time only to have her escape when he does something dumb You too will most likely predict the cliched ending before you re done with the first paragraph of chapter one You too will recall other, better, thrillers that actually say something that [...]


  29. I can only remember one thing about this and it s that I loved the first 2 chapters than the rest of the book.


  30. When Lily was 16, she was abducted by a prominent figure from her local community whom she should have been able to trust During her time held in a basement, she gave birth to a daughter, Sky 8 years after her abduction, her captor suddenly leaves a deadbolt unlocked one day and Lily escapes Told from the point of views of Lily, her twin sister, Abby, her mother, Eve, and her captor, Rick, Baby Doll is about the aftermath of Lily s and Sky s escape Abby s and Eve s lives have changed dramaticall [...]
