Sorry, i have been MIA on this blog. But that doesn’t mean I have stopped reading. I have read TONS and now that volleyball season is almost over, I will be playing catch up. I plan on reviewing the following this weekend:
- Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka
- Cicada Summer by Maureen Leurck
- Final Girls by Riley Sager
- Goat Castle: A True Story of Murder, Race and the Gothic South by Karen L. Cox
- Descent by Tim Johnson
- Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips
- 7 by Van R. Mayhall Jr.
Whew! I am going to be burning up the keyboard!
Final Girls was a pretty good thriller. As with lots of thrillers, I went through almost all of the characters thinking they were the ones who did it. Once you find out, the reveal is somewhat disturbing. But in these types of books, disturbing is a good thing. I want a thriller to bother me to the point that I cannot put the book down. This one was gripping and I highly recommend.
Thank you NetGalley for letting me get a jump on this one! Gina Royal finds out that her husband is a serial killer. She had no idea or involvement but because of internet conspiracy trolls, she has to stay on the run. This leads her to Stillhouse Lake. A small town in Tennessee where sweet tea can cure all. She finally believes she has found a safe place to stay. But that is when all you know what breaks loose.
This book is extremely fast paced. It will have you on the edge of your seat from the beginning. Trust NO ONE!
Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book. I thought this book was well written. The characters were well developed. I had not read the prequel to this book but the author did an amazing job in making sure to provide enough information that you were not lost. I really enjoyed the historical background of the “older” characters. I will definitely be reading Sarah Fleming Mountford’s first book!
Well this one wasn’t the best pick to read right before school starts back. But other than that, it was a wonderful fast paced read. School shootings are every parents nightmare and this definitely drives that point home. Marieke Nijkamp does and excellent job in character development. You can feel for every character. Even the shooter, while you know what he is doing is wrong you feel sorry for what he has been though.
So I am just a girl who LOVES to read. I am not an English major or Literature major. I am a Finance major. So these review will not be works of literary art I can guarantee you. BUT… they will be honest reviews! That being said, I absolutely loved Bring Her Home by David Bell. You must add this to your TBR list if you haven’t already.
I was captivated within the first page. My heart went out to Bill, the father of the missing teen. Having a teenage daughter myself, there were nights while reading this that I just had to check on her. I don’t want to give anything away but the twist and turns in this book will make your hair curl!!
This was my first David Bell book but NOT my last!! I will be added all his other books to my TBR list today!
So who here is participating in the 24 in 48? I started too late unfortunately. I started reading Bring Her Home by David Bell this past Thursday and it is very hard to put down. In fact, just typing this blog is eating into my reading time. lol. I will have a full review on it coming up.
So what are you guys reading today?
