I was so excited to get an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
This started off as kind of dull for me. I kept thinking: why do I care? All of the characters are rather unlikeable, which doesn’t help. BUT…the last half really picked up, and all the pieces started falling together. Suddenly, I couldn’t stop reading!! The last 25% was super twisty and fast paced. Don’t give up if it seems slow at first. It’s worth riding it out. Recommended!
Great character development, creepy atmosphere, compelling storyline, and a killer ending. Recommended.
Although it says I finished on the 25th, I actually just finished today.
It was good, but not great. There are a few gems, but nothing super scary/creepy. I expected more.
This was really dark. I like dark. The problem is that it didn’t feel believable for me. All the characters are awful and one dimensional. Still a fun read, but ultimately it was only okay.
This was so much better than I expected. Molly Ringwald can write! This book is made up of interconnected short stories that deal with issues of infidelity, infertility, and familial estrangement, among others. I related to so much of it, and it gave me insights into some difficult issues. The chapter entitled When It Happens To You is a killer.
I just bought her other book, Getting The Pretty Back, described as:
Yep. Next up!!
What the fuck did I just read?? 🤯
That was a fucking trip.
There was a point during my obsessive reading of this unputdownable book, where I literally exclaimed, “Oh hell yes.” This was a wild ride with one hell of a twist. Highly recommend.
Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC.
This was so good. 4 1/2 stars.
Obviously, I’m partial to any sort of court dramas, but I loved the way this story played out over three separate narratives. The ending was perfect. Really enjoyed this one!
If you love cilantro and jalapeño then you absolutely need this in your life. It’s off the charts good. The flavor is bold and fresh. So fucking delicious. I’ve been using it as veggie dip, steak sauce, and sandwich spread. I’m absolutely obsessed.
This bbq sauce is also fantastic. Great flavor and a spicy kick.
What a delightfully creepy novella.
I was offered an advance copy of the book for an honest review.
This was a fun read; a real page turner. It unfolded somewhat predictably, and I totally called the ending, but I was still totally into it. This would be a great beach read. Recommended.
Available July 30th.
