It's been a long time since I started and finished a book in the same day. Very easy to read and enjoyed the paranormal elements added to the thriller main story. The end seemed too rushed and easy but I did like the how it ended. Would have been nice to have a bit more back story of the protagonist and Gloria. Other than that I really enjoyed this.

I loved Tudor‘s first book, so I was very excited to read this one. I think I over anticipated this book and ultimately walk away not as impressed with her second book.

Just finished this last night and it was EXCELLENT. A little different than my normal genre, but it pays to try new things every once in a while. ;) It‘s pretty Steven King-esque, so if you like him, give it a try!

I highly recommend the audio! Richard Armitage is completely perfect for this one and adds an extra element of creep factor! I had to finish sadly in paper format though since 3 audiobooks came in at once from the library.

I enjoyed this one much more than Tudors 1st novel. A thriller with a supernatural twist, it‘s set in Nottinghamshire coal country, in a small town with a colliery that was closed years ago. Joe Thorne returns to his hometown after an email tells him that the strange occurrences that happened after his sister disappeared are happening again. But Joe‘s also a man with problems, like a psychopathic hitwoman after his gambling debt. #HSreadathon

Next up is this signed 1st edition of C.J.Tudor‘s second book that‘s been lurking away at the bottom of my #TBRStacksOfDoom That‘s the problem with being a bookhoarder with space issues, you forget about the awesome novels you have stashed away in places you can‘t see easily! #HSreadathon

I made it 25% into this and had to bail. The writing is fine but I'm just not seeing the point to the story.

This book is absolute torture to read. On one hand, I can‘t put it down. On the other, I don‘t want it to end! Very well written, Stephen King-esque with recognisable tropes. Oh.so.good!

I assume this is a homage to Stephen King, otherwise, her plot twist was too familiar to anyone that has read Pet Cemetery. There were parts that were clever and then there were times where the narrative rambled and completely went off the rails. I assumed this was in the thriller/mystery/suspense genre but it was more supernatural/horror. If you like horror, and you are a fan of Stephen King, than this book will totally be your bag.

This is the second novel from CJ Tudor. I really enjoyed her first novel, The Chalk Man. This book was different than I expected. It had a hit of mystery in it but the main plot was centered around a supernatural aspect. I expected the book to be a full blown murder mystery so I was a little disappointed. Overall though, the book was a decent read if you like the supernatural aspect.

This one has more of a Horror vibe than a Mystery/Thriller vibe, although there is a Mystery. 🤔

Thank goodness I finished this stupid book. I should have just bailed on it. I didn't like it. I have never read a book that put me to sleep. Of course, not everyone reads the same book with the same title. You may like it. But for me, it's a PAN!

This one started off really strong for me and kept me very engaged until about the 50% mark. Once I got to that point I found myself bored and started not caring. I am rounding up to two stars, but this was just meh for me.

Second I‘ve read by this author and loved them both. Small town supernatural thriller. An MC that you can never really decide whether you like him or not!
Great read, I look forward to more by this author. It‘s released under a different title in the US.

Cathythoughts Sounds really good. I have yet to read The Chalk Man ( but I have it in the shelf ) ... must have a look 7mo

I take offense to this statement! Some people are readers and prefer pristine books, like me.

Which type of reader are you: pristine, cracked spines and worn pages, or somewhere in between?

FashionableObserver I‘m in between but lean toward the well-worn,cracked spine. 🤷🏾‍♀️ Either way, it‘s all love! #bibliophile ❤️📚❤️ 7mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I don‘t crack the spines. And I take dust jackets off while I read them, so usually the hard covers look pretty good. Paperbacks can be a little dicier. 7mo
mcipher I love used books and I prefer paperbacks over hardcovers, so I don‘t want the book trashed but I do like a little wear and something that has “character” pretty quickly. 7mo

BookNAround I‘m pristine. Always. Also, a lot of the books on my shelves haven‘t been read but they weren‘t acquired to show off. They were acquired to be read at some point; that point just hasn‘t come yet. Nothing on my shelves was intended to show off and I think this judgmentality says a lot more about the author than about other readers. 7mo
Maude I'm a mix, I can be quite rough with my everyday books because I haul them around everywhere, but I have my special shelves with pristine copies I bought because I loved them and knew I wanted to keep a copy in my collection. 7mo
darklydreaming Somewhere in between! Plus, I tend to borrow books from the library anyhow so they are usually worse for wear when I get them 😊 7mo
iread2much I do think that‘s true for people who put their book‘s spine inwards. But I have shelves for my signed books (a very small collection) that are pristine, otherwise I keep my books however I leave them. I do try to upgrade to hardback if it‘s a book I will read many times so the spines aren‘t all gross. I also repair my own books. Yay for special collections training 7mo
Coffeedaily As a heavy library user, my book shelf stacks are a mix, pristine, if I‘m lucky but usually touched by human hands. Where do ebooks fall in the author‘s display preference? Spine out invites conversations about titles much easier than shelf after shelf of yellowing pages. 7mo
C.Perone Oh so very pristine😄 Anything less is just book abuse 😆 7mo
mdemanatee Pristine. Heck I get mad when the pages start to yellow (if anyone has tips on how to avoid this as I feel this has been happening quicker lately. Is it because I have the ladder style bookshelves? Is it because there is a lamp right next to one?) 7mo
Reggie In my 20‘s, almost every book had a salsa stain from all the Mexican restaurants I used to eat at.... so there‘s that. Lol 7mo
CouronneDhiver I like to keep mine in good condition but they are definitely meant to be used. 7mo
WeeziesBooks Mine tend to vary between pristine and good. I buy a lot of used books and sometimes thriftbooks says a book is in “like new condition” when they really mean “readable condition”. 7mo
TheLibrarian @FashionableObserver Agree with your last statement! 🙌🏻 7mo
TheLibrarian @BarbaraTheBibliophage I take off the dust jackets too! Paperbacks are harder, especially with taking them with you but I found that booksleeves have helped keep the wear down. 7mo
TheLibrarian @Reggie 😂😂 I had that happen to me once and now only read ebooks at restaurants. It has also taught me to wear a lot of black when going to Mexican restaurants. 7mo

Don‘t get me wrong, her books are immensely readable, but there is always something that I don‘t like about her writing style. This is much better than her last, but she always loses me at the end. I think it‘s slightly better than so-so. I need a ranking in between that and pick!

This was a mix of mystery, thriller and horror. Joe returns to his hometown after receiving an email about his deceased sister and “it” happening again. I had to keep reading to find out what happened to Joe‘s sister, Annie, in this creepy town. There were numerous plot lines and a little Pet Semetary going on here but I still enjoyed the supernatural element. My biggest complaint is that the ending felt rushed. Good final twist though. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

#BookMail Pt4 Written by the same author as The Chalk Man & published in the US as The Hiding Place. Joe never wanted to go back to his hometown of Arnhill after the way things ended with what happened with his sister. But another child has the same thing happen to them & Joes the only one who really knows what happened & who did it. Facing his former friends & current enemies is hard but hardest is facing the mine again, where it all happened.

Freespirit I really like The Chalk Man...was this as good? 7mo

I could have done without the supernatural twist, as it‘s not my thing, but her writing is superior and detailed. She goes a little far into thriller, even for me, but overall I‘d say a solid thriller writer!

I never got around to heading Tudor's first book (although I checked it out of the library yesterday) but I enjoyed this creepy thriller with horror elements & a Stephen King-ish vibe-especially once I got into it & the tension started to build. Not perfect but a good solid read. My blog book tour reviewed paired with Tuna Melt Sliders inspired by the book is on the blog this week. There's a GIVEAWAY for a copy too 🤗 (for U.S. addresses) Link👇🏻

This is a weird and creepy book. I wasn't expecting the supernatural elements but they definitely dominate the storyline. Although it kept my interest, the ending was a huge letdown. As for the twists...so what? Not mind-boggling at all. I've read better.

I am such a big fan of C.J. Tudor!! This is her second book, and it is every bit as good, if not better, than her first book! If you are looking for an excellently written, bone chilling, sleep with the lights on, thriller/horror, you will love this book. The last sentence of the epilogue made me shiver. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Hiding Place, also known as The Taking of Emily Throne, is a thriller that centers around guilt and grief, and is filled with intense situations that will keep you totally immersed in the story.
