Things We Do in the Dark
Things We Do in the Dark: A Novel | Jennifer Hillier
Things We Do in the Dark is a brilliant new thriller from Jennifer Hillier, the award-winning author of the breakout novels Little Secrets and Jar of Hearts, where the secrets of the past come back around when a woman, long believed dead, turns up alive...

I have very few triggers, but I really don't enjoy reading about child abuse victims. Did not realize that's what this was... I think I've got at least one of the "surprise twists" guessed, so I'm skipping to the end to see if I'm right and bailing.

BrittanyReads I hate when this happens 😔 sorry it ruined the book for you. I now use the Storygraph app to look up trigger warnings, readers submit them. I especially use it for BOTM books. That book sounded great and I almost picked it until I saw a warning for graphic child abuse and sexual assault. Gave it a skip! Hope it helps! 3d

One positive about it taking so long for my #BOTM boxes to arrive is that I tend to forget what books I picked & it‘s like a little surprise when it finally gets here! 😂 😂😂

I am excited about both of these!

I‘m almost a hundred pages in and I‘m 99.9% sure I know what the twist is. It‘s still really good though!

I haven‘t t posted my #joysofjune #readathon goals. I won‘t finish all of these, but I‘d like to finish 3 or 4 of them. Any that you loved that I should move to that top of the list? @Andrew65

Andrew65 Great to have you with us, good luck. I‘ve heard great things about The Paris Apartment. 2w
JamieArc I‘m listening to Breathless right now and really like it. 2w
janeycanuck I just finished Lessons in Chemistry last night - it‘s a quick read given that it‘s almost 400 pages but content warning for rape and sexual harassment. The Paris Apartment is a good locked room thriller with lots of twists and turns. Both are very enjoyable! (edited) 2w
Julsmarshall @Andrew65 @JamieArc and @janeycanuck Thanks for your input! I think I‘m starting Lessons in Chemistry next and then maybe Breathless! Finished The Paris Apartment and loved it! 2w
Andrew65 @Julsmarshall I need to get to that and do own a copy. 2w

And to think I almost skipped this month's #botm picks.

You guys, I loved this book!

Maybe I'm a fan of mysteries/thrillers after all.

Paris Peralta has reinvented herself more than once. An abusive childhood, a mother serving time for murder, and now her famous husband is dead.

Buckle up!

Weekend getaway starting with a bang! Resort pool, book, Ranchwater and sunshine 😎 Happy Friday everyone! #currentread #travelingreader

MicheleinPhilly What is Ranchwater? 2w
Julsmarshall @MicheleinPhilly It is tequila, lime, and sparkling water. Delicious and refreshing! https://www.southernliving.com/recipes/ranch-water 2w
MicheleinPhilly Well you truly do learn something new every day! I was having horrible visions of Hidden Valley Ranch dip powder poured into a glass of water. This sounds MUCH better! 😉 2w

A solid enough book in the thriller genre, I just felt that it dragged on at spots. I have to admit this wasn‘t a favorite. June #botm

I really liked this one! I loved her previous book, Jar of Hearts, so I was excited to read this newest book by her. It was intense and fast paced, and kept me guessing until the end. Nothing earth shattering, but a fun summer thriller that kept me entertained from start to finish! 📚💕

My #BOTM blue box came while I was down in PA at the hospital. I drove up to get some more clothes and check on my #litsykitties before going back down to the hospital. Thank you to everyone who has sent their thoughts and prayers. The #manpanion is still in the ICU but is more stable.

On a lighter note, you may notice that the duster is in the picture of my very dusty #bookshelf. It must be on vacation.😅#nojudging

I went with these two in my #BOTM box - I absolutely loved Jar of Hearts, so I couldn't pass up the new Jennifer Hillier. And I've had major fomo seeing the positive reviews for The Change 💜

KristiAhlers I have not read her! I shall have to check her out. You‘re going to love The Change. That was my pick last month. 4w
Lovesbooks87 I loved Jar of Hearts as well! Can‘t wait to read it. I listened to the audiobook of The Change in a day. Couldn‘t stop listening to it! 4w

I loved this book as much as I expected to based on the author. There were a couple different storylines and perspectives but they all fit together nicely. This was a story that I couldn‘t stop trying to figure out how each part was going to wrap up. At one point all of the possibilities ran through my mind but it wasn‘t clear until the reveals. Loved it! Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a digital arc! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Alfoster Yes, this one was so good (like all of hers)!❤️👊 4w

#TheThingsWeDoInTheDark #JenniferHillier #BookSpinBingo

Paris Paralta is charged with murder after she finds her celebrity husband dead in the bathtub. Ruby Reyes was charged with murder twenty-five years ago. Reyes knows who Paris really is and she threatens to expose all of Paris‘ secrets. This is a heart-pounding and surprise-filled plot that started out slow but heated up and kept me turning pages until the very end.

EadieB The timeline switches between the past and present. If you love action thrillers then you will enjoy this one. I would like to thank NetGalley and Minotaur Books for a copy for an honest review. 1mo
Andrew65 A great review. 1mo

I love all of her novels as they‘re all completely different! Paris is accused of murdering her husband and must stand trial. That‘s all you get for plot. Just know it‘s a wild ride so go into it with no expectations and enjoy the dark twists!
Thanks to #NetGalley for this ARC!
