The Sunday Girl Reviews
As I write this introduction I am STILL debating on my rating of this one. I felt it wasn't quite up to a 4 for me, however 3 seems a bit slack because I did enjoy it more than that. Times like this I really wish that Goodreads and Amazon would allow half votes!
Taylor wants to get revenge on her ex Angus, after he does more than a few awful things to her. But the problem is she doesn't quite know when enough is enough, and things get a bit out of hand...

There is something irresistibly intriguing about stories of revenge. Admit it – who has not at one point in their lives fantasised about getting even, about getting their own back, even if it’s just directed at the sibling that’s eaten your (no longer) secret stash of lollies or taken a peak at your diary. So when I was offered the chance to read an ARC of The Sunday Girl I felt very excited to indulge the darker side of my psyche.
The premise is not all that different from your usual tale of a ...more
Pip Drysdale’s debut psychological thriller The Sunday Girl, has been marketed as The Girl on the Train meets Before I Go to Sleep, with a splash of Bridget Jones. I’m not sure if all three of these comparisons are warranted, or accurate, but I did enjoy The Sunday Girl. I think this book does a good job of attaching itself to the popular dark psychological thriller genre, but it goes that one step further in offering storyline that is both different and ver ...more
Loved this book and couldn't put it down. The characters were believable and the storyline kept you wondering what would happen next. Every woman has either been in a toxic relationship or knows someone who has and every woman would have dreamed of revenge and how to execute it. Consulting the Art of War and applying it to revenge was brilliant and I loved the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. The book was well paced and clever - a modern love story gone bad. Great and unpredictable endin ...more
Wow, I loved this book, literally could not put it down!

To the external viewer, Taylor has the perfect life. Pretty, smart, with a good job in real estate research, she even has the perfect boyfriend, investment banker Angus.
Except, Taylor just found out Angus is cheating on her. On the eve of their ski holiday. And when she dumped him, the last thing she expected was for him to go on the holiday with the Other Woman… right after uploading a sex tape he convinced her to make, to the internet.
I have to say, I’d have started thinking about revenge as w ...more
I quite enjoyed reading this book - it is probably more 3.5 than 4 ... but definitely better than a 3*.
I read this story quickly and it was certainly a page turner. I really enjoyed the psychological twists throughout. I’d say target audience 16+ ... there’s a few confronting themes and sexy bits.
I won’t ruin the ending for you but I will tell you that I thought it let the rest of the book down.
I think this was a debut book for the author, so I look forward to book #2.
