Definitely kept me on my toes, wondering who was the villain, and was surprised by the ending. The idea of the second door is super creepy and a bit far-fetched in my opinion, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Looking forward to checking out the Netflix series.

I loved this book!! This one probably was the book that got me into psychological thrillers! The ending 😳😲 I haven‘t watched it yet! I guess I‘m worried that it won‘t be as good as the book. 👀

I won‘t give anything away here. But if you are interested in occult studies, read this book. Watch the adaptation on Netflix, too! I thought the twist was very clever.

What a bizarre and twisty novel this is! There might have been one twist too many for my taste, but it's definitely creative (and creepy).

This book really had me on the edge of my seat for the majority of the story. I felt exactly on par with the main character, Louise, unsure of what to believe and who to trust. The ending of the book went a little too far into the scifi realm for me, making it a little detached from the rest of the story and a tad disappointing.

This book is WILD. Compulsively readable, unsettling, and an ending that will leave you saying “Holy sh*t! WTF?” 😂Despite knowing that the ending was “controversial,” I could not have seen that coming AT ALL. And once I‘d finished, it was impossible not to go back and try to discover any breadcrumbs. I think it is hard to find a thriller anymore that completely surprises the reader, but Pinborough succeeded masterfully with this. 5⭐️

This one is seriously twisted. Louise met a man in a bar and fell for him only to find he is her married boss. She makes a new friend only to find it's his wife.
The twists and turns here kept me guessing. I lived the play between the characters, the intrigue. Four stars!

I read this one because the ending was supposed to be incredible, and it was. Unfortunately, the lead-up to the ending was not as good as the ending itself. The characters weren't very likable and were somewhat flat. I listened on audio, and I'm not sure I'd have finished if I hadn't. But it was a quick easy read with an intricately plotted mystery wrapped up well at the end so worth the listen.

I am totally through with this... I stuck around for a non-ending and absolute drivel. I'm disappointed in myself for trying to finish it. I've been listening at work and realized I just don't care about insane Adele, annoying busy body Louise or simpering David anymore. 😤

I had heard great things about this one so I was very intrigued. I wanted to love it, but I didn‘t. I was entertained but I got very annoyed with Louise. She kept making mistakes over and over again. The characters aren‘t particularly likeable. It‘s a complex plot and it wasn‘t a bad book but I just didn‘t love it. #thriller

I remember loving this book when it came out, as twisted as it was. But as much as I loved it, i have a terrible memory and didn‘t remember much of the details or the ending. Didn‘t realize there was a series adaptation until recently. Just finished watching, and it surprised me all over again. Who has seen it? What did you think?

When Behind Her Eyes was a BOTM selection in 2017 Litsy had a lot of WTF 😳 was that ending reviews. As it should be. This domestic psychological goes along mostly as expected until the author turns it in its head. Very much a love it or hate it 🤬 reveal. For me, it was one of two escape reads. With the holiday weekend, I put all serious reading down and immersed myself in OPL! ⬇️

Definitely not my usual genre, nor my favorite … but still enjoyable enough! I checked it out mainly because I wanted to read it before watching the Netflix series. Reminded me a LOT of Gone Girl and Verity—a psychological thriller driven mainly by feelings of “I have to know what happens!” and plot twists rather than character development, themes, or poignant language. Quick and easy summer read that was exactly what I expected it to be.

There was so much hype about this book and the Netflix series. Unpopular opinion: I was not impressed. The book was entertaining enough, but when a certain element of a supernatural nature (trying not to spoil here) came into play, I lost interest. The reveals weren‘t all that surprising either. At least I know that I don‘t need to make the Netflix series a priority.

This is another one of those books that I don't understand all the hype about. It was another domestic thriller. Although a short novel at 307 pages, I feel like the author really could have written it as a short story & been more effective. There wasn't enough in the storyline to justify the entire 307 pages of the book. Same worn out storyline. Nothing new or special here. I finished it but not because I wanted to-I just wanted it to be over.

This just really wasn't for me. It felt pretty predictable (especially since I had had a super high-level indication of the item under the spoiler warning below), even with the final twist. And it revolves around a "love" triangle with cheating involved that just really is not my cup of tea.

ScientistSam I knew high level that there was something paranormal, but I think it would have been pretty easy to guess by the halfway point if not sooner. 2y

I watched this on Netflix before reading it. The show is incredibly true to the book. Sometimes I wished I hadn't watched it first so I could be surprised by the twists. It would have been shocking! Other times I was glad I knew what was going to happen because I understood all the tiny clues and references. If you like twisty suspenseful thrillers, this is definitely worth a read (and watch). ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I‘m joining the #AwesomeApril Readathon! School starts again on Monday, so I won‘t have a lot of time to read, but think this will be a nice way to remind myself to pause and refresh. My goals:

📚Finish the book I am currently reading (tagged here).
📚Read the six picture books I have checked out from the library.
📚Read two more books from my April #BookSpinBINGO board.
📚Schedule a curbside library pickup.

I have been meaning to read this since I got it as a BOTM, but after watching the Netflix series, I had to pick this up. This is my first read by Pinborough and she did not disappoint.

A secretary meets a man while out on the town, who turns out to be her married boss. She soon befriends his wife, which turns everything upside down.

Some of the character's are frustrating, but the plot is really great, especially with the twist at the end.
