Warning-this book is EXTREMELY graphic when it comes to rape, torture, and murder. But if your stomach can handle it then I highly recommend the book. The author did a fantastic job with the way the story unfolds, layer after layer. It took me 2-3 hours before I became hooked to the story, but once I was it was hard to stop.

Pretty Girls is a true edge of your seat thriller!!

Claire and Lydia‘s sister, Julia, went missing twenty years ago. Now, another girl has vanished, and one can‘t help but wonder if these missing pretty girls are connected in some way.

After I reached the halfway point, I just could not put this one down! A solid plot with strong characters. Page turner!!

Fair warning that several scenes are graphic and unsettling.

Book_Fairy_Mary I devoured this book! So much craziness! A real page Turner! 1mo
KristenDuck @Book_Fairy_Mary it was pretty crazy!! Reminded me of a lifetime movie! 1mo
Book_Fairy_Mary @KristenDuck yes! That is the perfect comparison! 1mo

My current read...

I‘m more than halfway through, and oh my, are some of these scenes and descriptions intense! Actually taking a break because it is an edge-of-your-seat book for sure!

Fairly sure I have predicted how this one will end but definitely looking forward to the final chapters. Really enjoying this one!

I've heard Karin's books are amazing, so I borrowed this from a friend. It was ok. There were some really graphic scenes that I wasn't a fan of. One of the main characters was described as "really clever," but that was clearly not the case. At all. I'm curious to read more of her books though. I give it like a 3/5 #thrillers

Wow! This book was really tremendous! It is graphic and there are parts that may be too much for some readers, but if you enjoy Slaughter's writing, this may be her best. As a psychological thriller, it kept me invested, but was unique about this story was that she wove beautiful descriptions of family and love and loss throughout. Definitely recommend!

Looking for a good horror? This book had me on the edge of my seat all day! It has several sad parts in it, but all in all it was a fantastic read.

The character's are well developed and mostly likable. The narrator changes from one person to the next and back, which I think gives the story depth. I truly enjoyed this journey, albeit a little creeped out.

I would recommend this book for anyone wanting a good thriller.

📚📚 Happy Reading! 📚📚

I reached for this one pretty quickly after blowing through The Good Daughter, but this one didn‘t grab me as much. I didn‘t really like Claire or Lydia, and honestly had a hard time suspending my disbelief in some parts. still, Slaughter is great at her genre!

This book was intense in many ways and has pretty much all the trigger warnings. It is quite graphic at times. Basically it is about missing girls and a pair of sisters that lost their other sister many years ago and how it all connects to the present. Well woven story.

🎾Tale about downward spiral on a fam when a teen girl goes missing.
🎾Dark, intense, & evocative.
🎾Morbidly suspenseful.
🎾Strong themes of trauma associated w/loss focusing on drug use, abuse, obsession, & denial.
🎾Last 1/3 - 1/4 dragged on more than needed.
🎾Extremely psychological.
🎾Reads fast while being very detailed.
🎾Excellent character exams.
🎾TW: graphic sequences & references to rape. Graphic scenes of violence & torture. Suicide.

Rainy day psychological thriller! It‘s basically centred on the disappearance of a teenage girl and the various people it affects. Keeping it vague because I didn‘t wanna know much going into it. I‘m loving it so far. Very good, flowy writing with brilliantly brewing tension & suspense.

Oh my, this messed me up man. I didn't know what to expect going in but I heard "dark thriller" and I see lots of Litsy people reading her books, so I went for it. I liked it but need a break from dark for a few books. ?
It was like an episode of Criminal Minds. That's how I described it too my mom. It's her favorite show but it gives me the creeping horrors. It's weird I can read graphic, sexual violence but can't watch it on tv or movies.

stephothebesto I'm the same way - I read Game of Thrones (and other violent /graphic books), but cannot handle the show. I think reading gives you the power to make the editorial decisions - skim, recast, fast forward... There's something different about it. 8mo

I finished this one for the psychological thriller prompt for #aroundtheyearin52books. I like Karin Slaughter's books and this was also enjoyable. Some find it too graphic but it wasn't an issue for me. The psychological part was lacking a bit in my opinion but it's a good thriller.

#BookMail Pt2 I love Karin Slaughter so much! I‘ve met her at a talk she did at Camden library in SW Sydney in 2014, she signed 2 of my books as well, Cop Town, her new book at the time & Beyond Reach, the sixth Grant County book which has THAT plot twist which had me in floods of tears. I have read Pretty Girls already and loved it too, it‘s a stand alone about two sisters who‘ve struggled since the disappearance of their little sister years ago.
