Looks like someone wants to read My Lovely Wife with me!! #dogsoflitsy 🐶 💖🐕
I have been wanting FOREVER and finally today my book came in that I had on hold at the library!! Yay!! I'm so excited to read it!! Now I just have to hurry up and finish The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo ( which I'm loving by the way ) so I can start this bad boy!! 😃😃
If you're going to read any thriller this year, you'd be criminally missing out if this wasn't one of them.
“We look like a normal couple. We're your neighbors, the parents of your kid's friend, the acquaintances you keep meaning to get dinner with. We all have secrets to keep our marriage alive. Ours just happens to be getting away with murder“ Dexter meets Mr & Mrs Smith is an accurate portrayal of this thriller, and it was worth every second.
Late to the party!! But....
📚 Tagged book! And wow, it's a good one.
📚📚 I'm hoping to read Before She Knew Him by Peter Swanson. Or I'll dive into The Secret History by Donna Tartt.
📚📚📚 YOU by Caroline Kepnes on Netflix! It was so-so. As a survivor to stalking, it was hard to see it be so romanticized. But from an outside perspective, it was entertaining and I did like the book.
Thanks! @rachelsbrittain #weekendreads
Oooooo you guys! I was into it, then it kind of slowed down a bit, but then the last 1/3 of the book.... I was like “babe, let me tell you what‘s going on in this book!” And my husband acted like he was listening, as I rambled on... like I‘m doing now. Because I get excited when I finish a good book. Especially a thriller with a good twist!
New BOOK!! #mylovelywife #bookaholic

One of my furballs kept me company this evening while I finished up this book for my local bookclub.
I'll admit, my opinion is an unpopular one when it comes to this pick. I didn't love it; I didn't hate it. Yes, it's dark and twisty, but it leaves too many unanswered questions. And the contrast between the normal family life vs. the couples secret life felt too forced.
It's fast paced, keeps you engaged, just didn't quite make a pick for me.
Samantha Downing‘s very impressive, dark, twisted and suspenseful psychological thriller debut novel is not one to be missed! I loved every second of this book. Very entertaining. My Lovely Wife is told from the husbands POV, about himself, his wife Millicent, their two teenage kids Rory & Jenna and their typical (or not so typical) suburban family. I won‘t go into detail as it‘s best to go into a book like this blindly.
This book was not what I expected at all and I just loved this. This was told from the perspective of husband (he is nameless) of this married couple who happens to murder women. They have two kids and for a lot of this book you get a true family perspective and this dad just adores his family. The ending was completely unexpected. Such a great read.
I‘ve started a few books sinse my last pick & I just can‘t settle on one ( this seems to be a pattern ) so , I‘m going for a Litsy thriller recommendation.... I just want to land somewhere & read 🤞🏻
I‘m back. It‘s been a month today that my older brother Stevie passed away from a brain aneurysm. He was only 45 years old.
I started reading this book yesterday and I‘m already on page 206. So far I‘m loving it!! I will post a review when I‘m finished.
Finally a psychological thriller that didn't leave me a bit disappointed after finishing. This one had lots and lots of twists, some of which I could predict, but they all led to this grande finale that I didn't see coming. A real pageturner about a seemingly normal couple who kills young women just for the kick and because it arouses them sexually. Highly recommended in its genre!
4.5 ☆ This story is creepy and the ending was soooo disturbing it really makes you think. Is it actually over or is the nightmare continuing?? They were definitely a psycho couple which made it even more thrilling to keep reading reminding me of the Boogie Man stories we told as kids 😱
A must read for thrill seekers.
Eh, I‘m done. Even reading on the beach couldn‘t make me like this one. I gave it a good college try, now I‘m moving on. Too many books in my life to make myself trudge through this one. ✌️ #byeeeee
Y‘all, I don‘t know. I‘m about half way through this book club pick and am not in love. Not sure I‘m even in like with this book. Liking a character isn‘t a necessity for me. However, these characters murder for fun but are presented as a ‘normal family‘ just living life in the ‘burbs‘ and think the murdering is ‘sexy.‘ 🙄
My Lovely Wife is a wild ride, full of small secrets and twists that lead to a fantastic ending that I did not see coming! Clever and well-written, this is a fantastic thriller and impressive debut! Even if you‘re growing tired of the domestic/psychological thriller genre, make an exception for this one. Full review: www.goodreads.com/review/show/2753637138
If you‘ve read the book, check my spoiler in the comments. I‘d love to hear your thoughts!
This book is kind of brilliant. The depravity of this couple is astounding. What I found most interesting about this story is how the author managed to transition the husband from villian to anti-hero. Great character development. There was a twist at the end involving the wife and the daughter that shocked me. Then again, I wonder why I was so stunned by Millicent's actions. She's a sociopath through and through. Anyway, ❤❤❤'d it!!! 😍
Mid-week mini library haul. Yey for school holidays📚
