4 Stars / October 4, 2016

Looking for a fantastically creepy book to start off October? The Apartment by S. L. Grey may be just what you need.

And somewhere, softly, tentatively, under Carla’s vital bray, Steph is laughing too, a sound I haven’t heard for weeks. Since. Grey, S. L. The Apartment. Blumhouse Books – Anchor Books. Quote taken from an Uncorrected Proof. Final Edition may vary.   My First Impressions This book is told through two POVs, husband and wife Mark and Steph. So far it is very easy to read, the type of book you quickly get lost in. I am really curious about their past as well as what is…
