Temper | Layne Fargo
13 posts | 9 read | 1 reading | 14 to read
For fans of the high-stakes tension of the New York Times bestsellers Luckiest Girl Alive and The Lying Game, a razor-sharp page-turner about female ambition and what happens when fake violence draws real blood. After years of struggling in the Chicago theater scene, ambitious actress Kira Rascher finally lands the role of a lifetime. The catch? Starring in Temper means working with Malcolm Mercer, a mercurial director whos known for pushing his performers past their limitson stage and off. Kiras convinced she can handle Malcolm, but the theaters co-founder, Joanna Cuyler, is another story. Joanna sees Kira as a threatto her own thwarted artistic ambitions, her twisted relationship with Malcolm, and the shocking secret shes keeping about the upcoming production. But as opening night draws near, Kira and Joanna both start to realize that Malcolms dangerous extremes are nothing compared to what they're capable of themselves. An edgy, addictive, and fiendishly clever tale of ambition, deceit, and power, Temper is a timely, heart-in-your-throat psychological thriller that will leave you breathless.

• Received this #goodreads #giveaway back in the spring. This one came out July 2. Currently on page 45 and not liking it. It's either the fact I don't like the characters, or the drama world completely bores me (both are true) but I just don't have good luck with fiction ARCs 🤷‍♀️ Giving it a little bit longer (seriously, 25 more pages) and I'm bailing. Might anyone be interested in a #LitsyBookSwap? I know...way to sell it, right?! 😆 •

I don‘t remember how I heard about this one, but it‘s both not what I was expecting and completely on the tracks. I guessed the ending within seconds of starting it, but there is some decent tension throughout. More of a suspense than a thriller, but decent. If I didn‘t know exactly where it was going maybe I‘d have liked it more. But there are no surprises.

It feels like forever since I read a straight thriller. Can‘t wait to crawl into bed with this one.

Holy crap WOW. I don‘t even know what just happened but I loved it!! This book is a dark, psychological thrill ride and I just couldn‘t get off. I needed to know what these characters were thinking and what they were going to do next. Layne Fargo‘s writing is both edgy and utterly fascinating! Holy book hangover!! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

It's a gorgeous day in NYC! Perfect for perusing the $1 carts at the Strand. Found a few gems, including this ARC of Temper that sounds really good. Not released until July so probably a bit of an oops that it ended up for sale 🤫 #bookhaul

ravenlee I don‘t think ARCs are for sale at all, so it must have been a slip-up. I have seen them for sale at an indie bookstore, but it was a special event for charity. I know used bookstores won‘t take them because they can‘t sell them. 7mo
k.reads.5 The Signature of All Things is one of my all-time favorites! 7mo
swishandflick @ravenlee yep, I know! That's why I was surprised to stumble on it in the used $1 section 😆 7mo
swishandflick @pl.2886 that's good to hear!! 👏🏽 7mo

I received this as an ARC from a Goodreads Giveaway for my honest opinion. I liked it. It was a slow burn. Two women's POV's during the rehearsals of a play called Temper. Short Chapters and an ending that was unreal

Got this arc in a little free library, it‘s hella menacing, all about the theatre community in Chicago so I‘m loving all the references to places I know!
