About The Book

You can’t stop watching her.

But do you really know who Violet is?
Her fans are obsessed with finding out the truth, but their search quickly reveals a web of lies, betrayal, and shocking consequences…


My Thoughts

This is one of those psychological thrillers that puts your life into perspective, making you doubt of your friends, family and most important, distrust social media.
Unfollow Me is not an easy read, it’s harsh, direct and real, the problems it covers are the ones we all had at some point in our lives; infidelity, marital problems, infertility, obsession… So be prepared to take a few breaths between chapters to recover, it will not be easy, maybe too real.
This book is told between different voices, each one has their special part in the story making it more complex and real, it will not be the same without any of them. I can’t say that I liked the characters of the story, they are not made to be likable or pitted, they are here to tell their story and make us take a step back from our addiction to social media and take a deeper look at our personal problems, to repair them before it’s too late.
This is the story of Violet Young, a famous influencer that one day decides to close all her social media accounts without any notice and how it will affect her followers, or stalkers if you want to be more realistic. I really don’t want to spoil much of the plot, just that it’s a psychological thriller with a lot of realistic situations that the reader will feel reflected and the dark side of social media. Because, as I am sure you are aware, what you see in social media, the perfection and happiness is not real, we are all humans, imperfection is our quality, be proud of it!
Unfollow Me is a twisted and dark read that any reader will be hooked, impossible to put down or to stop thinking about, you will not want to “Unfollow Me”! 😉
