Fast read for me. I kept feeling like I read this book before but pretty sure I hadn‘t. May just be very similar storyline in another book I have read.

“Optimism is a sliver of glass in your heart.”

Spent the night and the whole day today finishing this horrific yet a real page turner.

P for A to Z challenge!

Also please recommend books to read starting with Q!!!

wanderinglynn I thought the story‘s organization was a disjointed but overall, an interesting story. 1mo
wanderinglynn Another one, also nonfiction, & I thought this one was well presented: 1mo
Cosmos_Moon @wanderinglynn I was going to mention Quiet, as well… went through my “read” list and this was my only Q. It was a good nonfiction about the power of introversion. 1mo

I loved characters so much! I rooted for them and hoped they would survive. Characters were well created and I loved how I couldn't know who were trustworthy and who weren't.

This had one brilliant twist and was super captivating.

Horrible but enjoyable thrilling to read!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ this book locked me in from very early on. I was not expecting it to be so graphic and triggering; but wow what a tale. At times it was hard to read, but I continued to grasp for more information and to learn what really happened. Definitely beware of graphic scenes, but if you like an intense thriller…give it a go!

This book was really good! My jaw definitely dropped a few times! The middle started to really drag, though. Did not need to be this long of a book. Also, I would stay away from the audiobook. The way the author pronounced words that started with a wh.... kept reminding me of the episode of Family Guy when Stewie pronounced cool whip... 4/5

Bailedbailed

I just couldn't get into this one. A woman's husband is murdered and she discovers he was involved with videos of women being tortured and murdered. She and her sister, the other main character, are not very likeable, and the scenes seem too drawn out and slow. It is also pretty predictable (I checked at over halfway to confirm) Maybe if I were reading it instead of listening, I could have skimmed some and made it farther, but I bailed at 20%.

Slaughter writes some of the darkest shit I‘ve ever read, and I‘ll read every word. This gripping thriller kept me on the edge of my seat, broke my heart, and sewed it back together again. The best thing about this was the badass female characters. Smart, capable, and relentless, these woman leapt off the page. Trigger warnings for everything, but the real story here is the pursuit of the truth. No matter how horrifying, it will set you free. 5⭐️

I listened to Pretty Girls, another dark and disturbing novel by Karin Slaughter about abduction and violent rape and murder. It's elaborate and lengthy, but, overall, it's a well-done suspense with some surprises. Enjoyable but not for the sensitive reader. 3.5

Whoa this book was a little deep in the dark side of humanity. This is the first book by Slaughter that I‘ve read so not sure if she normally writes about such disturbing subjects? I felt the story started out a little slow but definitely picked up in the middle with a few good twists I didn‘t see coming. This one may not be for everyone but if you have a tolerance for disturbing subject matter, I recommend!

5feet.of.fury Yeah she‘s pretty twisted. Some of her other books/series get some relief in the form of romance or character interactions. But they are all graphic and dark. 2y

This is dark. A story of a family who is utterly broken after the disappearance of their oldest daughter/sister decades ago. While a similar disappearance makes the news, The family is brought together unexpectedly when a tragedy befalls the youngest daughter. However nothing is as it appears, and they don‘t know who they can trust.

Impeccable writing, the characters, the conspiracy. The pacing had me unable to put it down. Horrifying. Wonderful

This book explores some pretty bleak aspects of humanity. Its conspiracies sometimes were more complicated than I could be bothered to keep up with and it also occasionally suffered for being told from multiple perspectives, but overall it was a good read. Just be warned though that it does explore graphic depictions of sexual violence.

My first foray into audiobooks now that I have a longer commute to work. I was not disappointed. I had a little trouble keeping track of the characters at first, but it was short-lived. The characters are not necessarily the most likable and it takes awhile before you understand the way in which the characters‘ stories intersect. At times, Karin provides TMI with the crime and the goriness of the violence, but I was hooked!!

If you are going to read this book, then you need to be aware of the seriously disturbed nature of the violence depicted. Thankfully, @CoverToCoverGirl and @LazyLibrary gave me a warning prior to jumping into this novel. Based on their warnings, I was actually expecting it to be a lot worse. My stomach for twisted is a bit higher than most, I think.
When Julia goes missing, all of her family members find their own ways to cope with the unknown⬇️

FelinesAndFelonies Most of them in unhealthy ways. Each of them grieving in their own way and falling into their own darkness. Claire and Lydia are the daughters left behind and living with the ghost of a sister who's presence is there though she is not. The story was packed full of twists and action and suspense. I finished this book in just under 24 hours. I couldn't put it down. I had to know if Claire and Lydia were okay. Definitely a solid thriller. 3y
FelinesAndFelonies This book will not be for everyone. TRIGGER WARNINGS ⚠️Graphic sexual violence, rape, torture, suicide, drug use, violence. 3y
BooksCoffeeNurse @FelinesAndFelonies I found this book to be very graphic. But I did still love the storyline and writing style. 3y

LazyLibrary Yesssss! Not for the feint of heart! But great read!!! 3y
FelinesAndFelonies @BooksCoffeeNurse I have seen some pretty terrible things and read the statement of facts for over 600+ offenders. I think it becomes harder to be shocked when you realize how close violence lurks. They say on average we will each walk past 36 murderers in our lifetimes. I have personally walked past hundreds and had regular contact with dozens convicted of multiple murderers. But for people without that history I think this book would be shocking. 3y
5feet.of.fury @FelinesAndFelonies “We walk by 36 murderers in our life” 😳 I‘m shook. I love Karin. Def adding this to the TBR 3y
CoverToCoverGirl It was everything you described and more. Glad you enjoyed it! The “we walk by 36 murderers” I believe. Alan Legere, Noel Winters and James Hutchison are known to me. The first. a serial killer, I knew through his daughter, they lived on our street. The second, also a serial killer, resided over the hill from our cottage and the third was a family friend, he executed two policemen. It still scares me to this day, whenever it comes to mind. (edited) 3y
CoverToCoverGirl And I‘ve always lived a very quite and boring life, so you just never know who can wander into your sphere. 3y
FelinesAndFelonies @CoverToCoverGirl "you just never know who can wander into your sphere" is exactly the part of this book that is the most terrifying. You can never know the motives of a "chance" encounter. 3y
CoverToCoverGirl @Reggie @Reggie Right! Life truly is stranger than fiction. Legere was actually up for parole this past January but was denied, our whole province was terrified at the mere thought of it.
