Good as Gone
Good as Gone | Amy Gentry
Thirteen-year-old Julie Whitaker was kidnapped from her bedroom in the middle of the night, witnessed only by her younger sister. Her family was shattered, but managed to stick together, hoping against hope that Julie is still alive. And then one night: the doorbell rings.

Interesting novel. The story of what happens to a family after their 13-year-old daughter disappears and returns 8 years later. Definitely suspenseful as the story kept confusing me (in a good way) and changing my mind about what I thought was happening. #MountTBR #LitsyAtoZ #LetterG

My mother died before Julie‘s hips ever filled out a skirt. She never saw me get my first heart-stop—that moment when you look at your girl in a certain light and see that she‘ll eventually become a woman, and it reminds you of every boy who put a pencil up your skirt when you walked ahead of him on the stairs, every man who stared at you at the bus stop, every honk on the street, every leering comment.

Happy Mother‘s Day fellow mothers. At a reasonable hour our bedroom door slid shut and a note that said ‘Do not exit this room‘ was left behind. No problem kids. I‘m happy to stay in bed reading while you get all my gifts ready and your father gets me a cup of tea and makes me Swedish pancakes. They took me on a picnic to Stanley Park which is a gorgeous old homestead up the road. #iwokeuplikethis #lmpbc #Groupx @thegreensofa @Sarz @BecH @suvata

I am watching my sisters boys overnight. I have a feeling it is going to be a long night. The one year old is sleeping, and for the moment so is the almost 3 year old. 3 has been diagnosed with Speech Apraxia, with possible anxiety and ADHD. Instead of being in bed tonight I am on the couch with 3. I have a new appreciation for Mom's of special needs kids. Glad I could give my Sis a break, but send positive vibes that we make it through.

Finished up all my books that I had a little bit left in today. #goals !!! This was okay. Interesting abduction story and use of time. Reminded me of The Good Girl by Mary Kubica a little bit. Not bad, just a little odd in the way that it came together and not in a way that I was excited about.

This was a bit better than I expected based on the minimal synopsis, & while I know some people found the structure confusing, I thought it was interesting & made sense for the story the author was telling. I was definitely hooked & wanted to get to the end. But at the same time, there were a lot of plot holes & things left unaddressed, and most of the handful of characters were pretty flat. A decent read, but not super memorable, I guess. 3/5 ⭐️

On Goodreads, a review that begins “this is one of the best books I‘ve read this year” is immediately followed by one that begins “Absolutely hated this book, really ZERO stars, what a jumbled mess.” 😝😝😝 Let‘s see which camp I end up in! #nowreading

Reviewsbylola 😂😂😂 I fell in the middle of those two. I thought it was cleverly formatted but I also didn‘t find it memorable overall. 9mo

Here is a stack of #botm books I‘ve read. Show me yours! #bookstack - #readingresolutions 📚

I read #GoodAsGone a couple years ago and it‘s one of my favorite thrillers!

Blurb: “If you love a measured and thought-provoking novel of #suspense, with one eye on character study and one eye on a city‘s conflicted culture, this might just be the next book for you...[This Book delivers with] crisp, unobtrusive writing and well-executed plot twists.”

JillR How did you enjoy Other People‘s Houses? It keeps catching my eye... 10mo
Jess7 @JillR - it was a so-so for me. If you search the hashtag #jpbookreview you will find my review of it (spoiler free). Just keep scrolling through them - I read it in April I think. 🤗🤗🤗 10mo

A kidnapping story that could have been good but went terribly awry. Lots of rabbit trails and unanswered questions. Kind of like when you're watching a movie and you say, "Really? That door just happened to be there?!?" and your spouse replies, "It was in the script." Yeah, that.

That was a rollercoaster of a book. 13 year old Julie is taken from her home one night and returns almost a decade later. Every character has secrets and demons that come to light as we learn the truth about Julie's disappearance. The bond between mother and daughter play an important part in this story. This book made me think about my relationship with my daughter. Have I been a good mom to her?

This is available through Kindle Unlimited.

Thanks for the chance to win the #Beloveds! AmyGentry is one of my newer favorite authors of #Psychologicalthrillers and I loved this debut #GoodAsGone. I also really like these authors Gillian Flynn, Lisa Lutz, Paula Hawkins (one of them), Gilly Macmillan, Ruth Ware (some of them), Kate Morton, Mary Kubica (esp. #TheGoodGirl), BA Paris, and more! #ReadingResolutions - #LitsyGiveaways

Jess7 I liked The Girl on the Train. I read it before all the hype and loved it. Into the Water was just so-so to me. @ReadingSusan but I think there are many who felt the opposite bc of the hype. Have you read Paula Hawkins and did you like either of the books? 1y
ReadingSusan @Jess7 I read The Girl on the Train right after Gone Girl and that made me not like it. I liked Into the Water more but didn‘t really love it either. 1y
Jess7 I think several people feel like that. I actually read Girl on the Train first. I watched the Gone Girl movie before reading the book. @ReadingSusan 1y

rwmg I've read The Girl On The Train and would have bailed after the first chapter if it hadn't been a book club choice. Sharp Objects was also a book club choice, OMG what a depressing bunch of people in that book. 1y

✨I bought #goodasgone by #amygentry at a library book sale over a year ago. I still haven‘t read it. 😂 I‘m so terrible. I buy so many books and it takes me ages to get to them. I know I‘m not the only one with this issue. QOTD: About how many books do you own that you haven‘t read yet?✨

jpmcwisemorgan I‘m going to go with at least 1000 because most of the physical books I own I haven‘t read, and that‘s two bookcases worth at least. And I own more than 1000 ebooks and I definitely haven‘t read all of them. That‘s why I‘m not gonna count them. 1y

This was a really quick read, that literally kept me guessing. It occurred to me that the plot gets a confusing when I tried explaining in to a curious group of students. It wasn't as unexpected as I hoped, but it was super engaging, edge of your seat, a good pick for fans of thrillers. #classroomread

I‘m between a pick and so-so on this one. It was interesting and a little suspenseful, but I had a hard time with the main character. The choices she made just were not believable at all. I also don‘t like how the author vilified religion.
