About this deal

Susan grew up in South East London, left school at 16 and only later began to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a novelist. The plot was fairly predictable from early on (no spoilers but it’s about family ties, separation and how lives diverge).

I knew things would escalate and even though I wanted to protect Emily and her family at all costs, I also secretly couldn’t wait for what came next in their friendship. I was so invested in Emily’s life, and even though herself and Simon had built an impressive life together with a nice house and beautiful daughter, it seems there’s still a few things Emily would change, and she’s not at her happiest right now. The authors writing is a bit of me, dark, sinister and with foreboding characters and of course Simon the dickward - hated him immensely. Susan Elliot Wright is the bestselling author of five novels, including the acclaimed The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood.

Anna is certainly a character that the reader will feel sorry for and her actions are clearly as a result of the trauma and rejection she has faced. Lisa Hall, author of The Woman in the Woods'Wonderfully tense from the very first page, I ripped through this in a few nights. All You Ever Wanted is a dark domestic drama that ticks every single box, with an ending that’ll have you thinking for months.

It was a thrilling read and definitely makes you turn page after page, revealing even more twists and secrets.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

The author consistently kept my attention on the book, the questions starting to pile up in my mind. looking after her 1 year old daughter Bonnie and living with a growing sense of paranoia regarding both her husband's fidelity and a sense of being watched. With her taut writing and immaculate pacing, Susan Elliot Wright has created a dark and sinister tale of toxic family relationships, full of secrets and lies, layered with a perfect example of the smothering isolation felt by so many new mothers. From her husband, to her new friend, to her husband’s ex partner, Emily has a lot to balance, and as we regularly enter her thoughts and feelings, it’s clear she isn’t kind to herself about a lot of things in her life. This is such a dark and emotional read and i certainly wasn't prepared for how emotionally tied I would be to the characters.Anna's life has been one of struggle, rejection and loneliness whereas Emily seems to have a dream life and it does encourage you to question whether you should feel sympathy for her or whether she is ungrateful.
