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.
Getting in a little chill time before another busy day of errands, projects, and exercise.
Currently reading: The Whisper Man by Alex North.
I have like five books going right now, which is unusual for me. I don’t like it.
– anything by Judy Blume, but especially Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret
– Behind The Attic Wall
– Wait Till Helen Comes
– The Dollhouse Murders (and all the other Betty Ren Wright books)
– 13 Shadow Lane
I still have copies and revisit these books about once every couple of years. Still love them.
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.
Super fun read. Couldn’t put it down.
This was…not good, like kind of painful.
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.
He’s becoming one of my new favorite authors. All three of his books are amazing. If you’re into thrillers, you have to check them out.
