This is Whiskers signature move when I read in bed: she walks up and agressively head butts my hand so the book flips around and then when she realizes I‘m still reading she shoves the book to the side and lays down as close to my throat as she can. 🤦‍♀️ #caturday

Suspense novels are my favorite guilty pleasure reads and this recommendation from @candority was exactly what I was in the mood to devour. If Doc ⬆️ didn‘t keep interrupting, it would have been read in one sitting. I was just sure enough that I knew what secrets the characters were hiding that I had to keep reading to see if I was right. And it was so enjoyable that I have Harding‘s The Party on library hold. #NewYearWhoDis #catsoflitsy

monalyisha Yes! Success numero uno! 9mo
candority I‘m so happy you enjoyed it! 😸 I own The Party. Let me know when your hold comes in and we could read it together? 9mo
LauraJ @candority per Libby, it should be available in early January. 9mo

I know that #NewYearWhoDis is supposed to start in the NEW YEAR, but a) I‘m so done with 2018, b) @candority has too many good books on her list for a mere 31 days of reading c) there‘s no wait list for this one at my library and I need a book right this second!

Lisaw13 I may start my list early too 😉 Totally agree about being done with 2018 9mo
monalyisha Awesome! As I‘ve said: rules are meant to be broken. 😉 Have fun! 9mo
candority Ahhh, I‘m so excited that you‘re already starting! I read this book is one sitting - it was perfect for the mood I was in. I hope you enjoy it 😊 I have one more exam to write, then I‘ll be free to start planning/reading from your list 😍 9mo

I easily get annoyed with the flawless, perfect, mythical woman get has now become a trope of suspense fiction and wonder why that‘s necessary to tell a story. Despite the “perfect” Kate, I did enjoy this book! Makes for a good audiobook. There are definite twists in this one and real character moments too! I want to read Robyn Harding‘s other books. This would make a good movie!

It was ok. Thought I might be more surprised, but after the story twisted a few times & my guesses for who was who were proved wrong, the shrouded pasts of the players became obvious. So for the last 30% it was a waiting game to see if the MC would reveal her new info or if it would all implode. It seemed too easy, and suspense was lost to flat characters after one too many reveals. Also, the stark line between past and present didn't help.

Her Pretty Face was an absolutely fantastic domestic thriller filled with lies and deceit. Just when I thought I had things figured out, something would happen that turned everything upside down. The novel is told from three perspectives: Frances, Daisy & DJ, and part of the suspense of the novel is trying to figure out how these three perspectives are connected. I couldn‘t put this book down (in fact, I read the entire thing in a few hours)!

An unspeakable shocker of a plot that had me second guessing myself. The story opens w/the 1996 murder of 15yr old Courtney Carey. Fast forward 22yrs, two mothers become fast friends at an elite school where their sons attend. One of them is living under an alias + committed that gruesome crime in 1996. The BIG question of the day.. is she that same person now?!! But wait.. the other mom is hiding a dark secret too! A quick mystery I enjoyed. 4 ☆

#HerPrettyFace is a riveting tale of 2 women from #RobynHarding. Frances lacks confidence & friends, & has a troubled son. Kate is beautiful, self-assured, & befriends Frances as her son befriends Frances' boy. Both are hiding dark secrets.
One is not who she says she is.
How far can forgiveness extend, even for the sake of children? ⭐⭐⭐⭐ #NetGalley

"The moment was couched in humor, but that look, where they recognized the darkness in each other, forged a kind of bond. A new level of comfort was borne, an inherent understanding of each other. Kate and Frances didn‘t connect with the other Forrester mothers because they were a different breed. They had found each other, and it felt fated."

I just finished reading this book, and I loved it! I‘m a big fan of true crime, so when one of the characters turned out to be a murderer...(one with a ripped-from-the-headlines case you‘ll definitely recognize if you were old enough in the 1990s), I just knew this was a story I had to read! I highly recommend that you check it out as well if you like books about families, friendships, and interpersonal struggles.

3.5/5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟. This is a suspenseful thriller that kept my attention. Two women, each with secret pasts, quickly bond over their disdain for the snobbish school moms at their sons‘ school. One of these women is not who she seems. One has committed an unimaginable murder. The writing contained a lot parentheticals and I thought it was fairly predictable, but two of the main characters were well developed, and I enjoyed it. #jpbookreview

Jess7 I received an #arc of this book from the author and the publisher (scout press) in exchange for an honest review. It was a suspensful, quick read that I devoured in only a couple days and I was invested in one of the characters quite a bit. I will say there wasn‘t a big twist— more of a reveal that I saw coming, but I recommend checking it out. Pub date is tomorrow 7/10. #bookreview #advancedreaderscopy #HerPrettyFace #RobynHarding #review (edited) 1y

We watched the premiere of #SharpObjects tonight! It was so good 🤓🤗! Now back to reading Her Pretty Face!

So far I am really enjoying the storyline of #HerPrettyFace but I‘m finding the parenthetical phrases to be a bit distracting. Above is one example, but the book is peppered with them. Does anyone else find the overuse of these to be annoying or is it just me? What‘s your bookish pet peeve?

2.5 STARS - an okay read. Her Pretty Face follows two suburban moms who both have pasts they‘d rather keep hidden. While I found this more of a drama then a thriller, Harding raises some interesting points about whether or not a person can truly change after committing an unforgivable crime. I would have liked a lot more suspense. My full review: http://thebakingbookworm.blogspot.com/2018/07/her-pretty-face.html?m=1

Currently reading: #HerPrettyFace: Frances is a stay-at-home mom whose son, Marcus, is her full-time job. She doesn‘t fit in with the other moms and feels alone until she meets Kate. She is everything Frances is not, but surprisingly Kate doesn‘t act like the other snobby moms. The two instantly bond, but one of these women is not who she seems. One of these women is a murderer 😱 I‘m enjoying this suspenseful #thriller! Pub date: July 10th #ARC

They become fast friends when they band together against the other moms at Forrester Academy. But one has a secret about her past that is hard to keep buried.

The story is told from multiple POV and it‘s pure genius how it all ties together. Harding's writing is sharp, layered, complex and there‘s just enough plot twists to keep the reader engaged and fully vested in the narrative. She spins a tale of secrets & lies, deceit and examines how well we really know people, especially those we let into our lives. Congratulations, Robyn, on a fabulous book and one day we will have that kitchen dance party.
