Ugh this book took me two weeks to read. If you know me then you know that‘s unusual.

I just didn‘t care for the story. It was so boring and then you find out the mystery right away followed by so much boring crap. The last ten pages were high paced and a little bit better. Figured out the “twist” way before the bread crumbs started. Besides the disappointment, the writing was good and the last ten pages made this 3 stars.

⭐️⭐️⭐️

Megabooks Totally agree! 2w

Reviewsbylola I haven‘t read this one and have no desire to. I have enjoyed some of Ware‘s books but I‘m usually not overly impressed. 2w

Another excellent book by Ruth Ware. A group of four girls play the lying game while at boarding school. This leads to the ultimate lie.

What a mess...I almost DNF‘d this one several times. The story felt all over the place and to be honest the ending was weak at best. Not a great read for me at all. #thriller #fiction #ruthware

MrBook Wow! That bad, huh? (edited) 1mo
Alfrazier21 @MrBook Yea, this one wasn‘t for me! I liked her books #InADarkDarkWood and #TheWomaninCabin10 , but the suspense was weak with this one 🤷‍♀️ 1mo

Four girls who became friends at a boarding school reconnect when one of them, Kate, reaches out with “I need you.” This mystery/thriller is told in present day and flashbacks to their time at school, providing pieces to the puzzle. This was a slow start for me. I didn‘t get engaged until about halfway through. The ending jumped around and although it wasn‘t completely a surprise it did have me scratching my head.

Like having to put your socks and shoes back on after swimming and your feet aren‘t dry yet— you‘ll make it through, but it‘s a bit annoying. You can only use the phrase, “I shivered despite the warmth” so many times until I tune out. I‘m also usually not great at predicting; not only could I predict all the plot twists— I could predict the next words coming after every pause. Read it, but just don‘t expect to be surprised.

ravenlee A very apt description. I read this a couple weeks ago and agree completely. There was this whole House of Usher vibe going on that gave it all away pretty early. 2mo

I used this for an “outside your comfort zone” prompt for SRP. Mystery/thriller, not my usual read, and it just didn‘t work for me. Nothing shocked or surprised me, and I don‘t understand the MC.

I dislike the old-school-friends-and-buried-secrets trope, and have yet to see it handled well. It reminds me of the Christopher Pike books I devoured as a young teen, but I can‘t take it seriously as an adult.

Just finished this audiobook; I would give it 3/5 stars. Good narration, pretty good story, not thrilled with the ending. My major problem with it is that no one seemed to address or worry about the fact the girls were naked in the drawings. Not critical to the story but still surprising that it seemed to be acceptable to all those involved. Otherwise, pretty good story.

Checking in for Hr 21 of #24in48 📚📚
I've logged about 10hrs and finished 2 books. I've had a lot of interruptions while reading my own books to read with my boys. I'm not complaining, I love reading with my kids, but it's definitely meant that I've finished fewer books than I thought I would after 10 hours. Planned to move to Nevernight next, but after finishing Kingdom of Copper I need something lighter & quicker so The Lying Game is up next.

The Lying Game is a page turner, and I think it might be my favourite of the three Ware books I‘ve read. Although it‘s not too difficult to figure out how the story will end, and I really didn‘t like some of the decisions and actions of the main character, I enjoyed the book nevertheless. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I own a lot of books, many of which remain unread. In an attempt to reduce my massive TBR pile, I plan on making this the #summerofsuspense My plan is to read as many as I can of the books on the top (fully pictured) shelf, and those stacked beside the bookcase. All of these books fall in the mystery, suspense, or thriller genres. I don‘t read as quickly as many of you, but books in these genres I tend to get through quickly. Wish me luck! 📚

It‘s a lovely 19 degrees (C) here today, which is the perfect temperature for me to read outside — I hate heat and actually prefer - 30 to + 30 🤷🏻‍♀️

I have what feels like a gazillion unread thrillers/suspense novels spread across various bookshelves in my house, and I‘m going to try and tackle a bunch of them this summer. I‘m starting with the book pictured. I‘ve enjoyed the previous Ruth Ware books I‘ve read so I expect I enjoy this.

marleed Oh good luck. For the next book fitness challenge, I‘m committing to one book from my physical TBR for every library ebook - a true challenge for me. ... I love Ruth Ware books, I‘m discovering! 3mo

Ruth Ware does a good job of layering her story. You keep reading to find the next layer and get a little more info about what really happened.

If Pretty Little Liars and I Know What You Did Last Summer had a baby it would be this book. Im starting to realize though that Ruth Ware books are hit or miss for me. This one was a miss. There was a lot of chapters that were just taking up space. This could have been a short story and told in a 100 pages. The story was good and it kept me guessing with a twist at the end but it was so slow to get going and stayed slow.

Gawd this book was infuriating! Every damned character made me want to smash things. I‘m not usually bothered by unlikeable characters, but I found myself getting annoyed by them instead of engrossed in the plot. The mystery is conveyed by MC continually eluding to this big bad secret. I felt more irritated by the contrived suspense than intrigued by the story. Not a DNF but not a favourite either. Will still read this author though.

I loved the characters and the nostalgia mixed with remorse in this one. I found it to be extremely addictive and I read it in two sittings. I think it might be my favorite Ruth Ware that I've read so far just because I felt like I understood the character of Isa so well.

This book was good but it won‘t be one of my favorites for the year. It was fast paced, the writing was good, there were plenty of twists and turns but I didn‘t love any of the characters. Not they were bad or poorly developed, but none of them had richness or depth either. Overall, a good book but not a great one.

Easy, quick read. Kept me intrigued. Although the first 3/4 of the story was interesting and kept me wanting to read more, it wasn‘t until the last 1/4 that the story seemed to spiral out of control (in a great way). Definitely would recommend

Sorry, I am so done. I had to quit at the 68% mark. This is too boring for words and I do not like any of the characters. I have too many other books waiting for me to waste my time with this hot mess. Sadly, this is the first Ruth Ware book that I hate. 🙁

Sweettartlaura I haven‘t read this one, but I think she‘s unreliable 😕. I loved In a Dark, Dark Wood... until it turned out as predictable as I thought. The Woman in Cabin 10 was MUCH better. I was hoping to hear she gets better with each one. But I hear spotty things 🤷🏻‍♀️ 7mo
Jemgirl2014 @Sweettartlaura Oh, my gosh! Definitely skip this one. I thought "In a Dark, Dark Place" was pretty good but you're right about it being predictable. I loved "The Woman in Cabin 10" and I think "The Death of Mrs. Westaway" is my favorite. I preordered "Turn of the Key" but now I"m thinking of waiting for the reviews before I buy. LOL 7mo

Jemgirl2014 @MelissaSue81 Yes, I thought about finishing it since I was so close to the end. However, since it was a just a free library book, I returned it. She resented her baby?! I must have missed that. Or I didn't get that far to pick up on that. All I know is that I'm glad I'm rid of that book lol. 7mo
