From Ruth Ware, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of In a Dark, Dark Wood, The Woman in Cabin 10, The Lying Game, The Death of Mrs. Westaway, and The Turn of the Key, comes her highly anticipated sixth novel. Getting snowed in at a mountain chalet doesnt sound like the worst problem in the world. Especially when theres a breathtaking vista, a cozy fire, and company to keep you warm. Unless that company happens to be eight coworkers...none of whom you can trust. When an off-site company retreat meant to promote mindfulness and collaboration goes utterly wrong with the arrival of a monster storm, the corporate food chain becomes irrelevant and survival trumps synergy. Come Monday morning, how many members short will the team be?

Read in 1st week of January. This was interesting thriller but quite predictable. But I was curious to see how it would end which was also predictable. But I liked it in general. 3.4⭐️

Thank you so much @Judybskt !!! I have been meaning to read this one for a long time and it looks like a perfect wintery read!! Please pay no attention to the fact that the Reese's are already opened... obviously I have enough self-control to at least wait to do that until after I take a picture! 😂

Thanks for hosting the #LittleChristmasSwap @bookish_wookish !! The perfect way to conclude the holiday season!!

1. Not my favorite by Ruth Ware, but really, can she do anything wrong?!

2. A personal goal I have is to write more on my website and start an Instagram account to encourage mothers. A lot of the past year I spent pregnant and sick and just trying to survive, and now I feel a little more settled and energized.

3. Good friends!

The anticipation builds! So many good things to open in my #bestof2021 box !

We had my brother & nephew here for our annual New Years get-together this weekend, and of course we missed 2020, so it was extra special. We also lost my sister-in-law last March, so it was extra emotional. I realized after they‘d left this morning I had my beautiful swap box to open, and here we are!

Yeah yeah, it was good. Kept me interested and wanting to finish it. The ending was a bit dragged out, I think it coulda been shorter.
The thing is… I dno, I was happy that it ended. The characters were a bit one dimensional, which was extra noticeable bc the setting was so isolated.
Despite all that, it was decent. I hear her other book Turn of the Key is good, so I‘m def adding that to my tbr!

A business retreat at an alpine mountain chalet is complicated by an avalanche trapping the chalet's residents snowbound with a murderer. It's okay, but also contains several narrative pet peeves that had me rolling my eyes.

vivastory I started reading this & only got a few pages in before I set it down. I found the introductions to the different employees grating. 2mo
swynn @vivastory Oh yeah, the introductions via hipster marketing copy! Good news is, that style choice changes pretty quickly. 2mo

Book 131

I listened to One by One by Ruth Ware; the setup is a familiar one-a group of people snowed-in to a ski chalet begin disappearing and dying. It was fast-paced and thrilling. Nothing memorable long-term, and the reveal wasn't surprising (maybe wasn't supposed to be? ) but an enjoyable escape while it lasted.

A friend lent this to me and I quite enjoyed it. My first Ruth Ware and can see the appeal. A locked room mystery that was a touch cliche but very suspenseful and the final show down is super exciting. A good payoff, would definitely read others by her.

This was an enjoyable locked room mystery. It had two main characters and kept you guessing and wondering when the shoe would drop, the whole.cast of characters made for a great read. Fast paced, short chapters, overall, well done. #TeamSlaughter #Scarathlon2021 15pts Book Related to the Team Theme.

#LittensDressedInBlood Today's prompt is The Call Is Coming From Upstairs!

Oh, littens, I love a thriller where people are stuck together with a killer, and while the body count mounts, everyone becomes a suspect. This is a particularly good one to read as Fall turns into Winter.

Suspenseful quick read. Loved how each "chapter" was a from a different person's perspective. Felt lots of connections between this one and The Sanatorium-- a big one being the setting but also lots of revenge.

I've been quiet lately because instead of bingeing on books I've been bingeing on a podcast about tarot and esoteric symbols etc.
But this audio hold came in and I gobbled it pretty quick on my long runs and today. Not the best Ware, imho, but still obviously entertaining. I think I saw a few of the twists coming so I feel the first half may actually have been stronger.
Also, delicious cookies! Because I didn't make pie and my beau grumbled 😂

This story didn't break any new ground but I enjoyed it. I liked both narrators, the setting, & the descriptions. It was easy to imagine myself in the cozy chalet, esp when it stopped being cozy! I guessed the killer fairly quickly (unusual for me) but the motivations weren't what we expect & made for a more interesting story. The chase down the ski run was a nail biter! ⬇️

bookandbedandtea ⬆️ At he end the culprit is described variously as a murderer, a victim, and a psychopath. All are true. 5mo

⭐⭐⭐
While this was a pretty fast paced and enjoyable locked room mystery, I feel like there was nothing new here. Ware's characters are the same as they always are, and the story is not any different from lots of others I've read lately - Sanatorium, Hunting Party, etc. She's a good writer, & it was an enjoyable enough read, but it wasn't one I'll remember a year, or likely even a month, from now.

If there ever was an overhyped author I think she‘s it. The book was ok at the very best. It drug on in spots, underdeveloped characters, the end was how she ends all her books. The story just didn‘t make sense once you found out the culprit and the reasoning behind the murders was incredibly stupid 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Barbie.Hudson Thanks for this review. She is definitely hit or miss for me, mostly miss. But I can‘t get into this one so maybe I will move on and not waste my time. 6mo

This book was so atmospheric and fun to read. I read this in June in Florida & still felt the cold isolation Ware built into the story. It wasn't exactly a difficult mystery to figure out, but I liked following the trail to the end. A little paranoid, a little silly - this hit my mystery/thriller itch just right.

Bklover I liked this one too! 6mo

I was recommended this one because I really enjoyed The Guest List and it did not disappoint. A start up tech company is stranded with two workers in a house after an avalanche and mysteriously people keep dying. The chapters bounce back and forth between one of the staff members and one of the coworkers. This was my #bookspin and earned me 29 points for #littenlisten being my total to 69 points!

Genre: Thriller
This was the first book that caught my eye from the first ten books that I saw. I decided to start reading this book because I wanted to switch the genres a bit. I chose to read this book because I was looking for a thriller book and this book is about these people that were supposed to relax on their break but it doesn't go according to plan.
