Currently reading Shutter Island and I'm hugely enjoying it. If you haven't picked up this gem, do it. Mystery, thriller, suspense with a twist ending! #shutterisland #dennislehane #mystery #thriller #twistendings

This is a gripping story with many twists and turns and just when you think you have something figured out....you don't. This book you will think about long after the last page.

#YouNeverCanTell if you believe what they say...when the narrator can‘t be trusted (whether due to self-delusion or downright insane), and makes you question what is being told.

I saw the movie when it first came out (because Leonardo DiCaprio, duh), but honestly couldn‘t remember what happened.

This book is fast-paced, filled with tension and humorous banter, and it‘s creepily atmospheric. What an awesome setting... a mental institution all alone on an island in a hurricane. And holy plot twists!

The only possible explanation I have for forgetting that movie ending is that Leo is distracting as all hell. 😂

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

ReadingRover This is one of my favorite books! I read it in like 2 days. (edited) 7mo

SailorMoon @kaysworld1 I read it over a night! Too gripping to put down and go to sleep! 🤯 I then watched the movie but, nevermind the presence of my true love Leonardo Di Caprio, I didn't enjoy it as much as the book. I recall the riddle in thr papersheet being different and shorter from the book, and also the ending was slightly different, if I am not mistaken! But the plot in general... OMG!!! 🤯😍 10mo
Crazeedi Yes I do that a lot! Too many to list! 10mo
SailorMoon @Crazeedi I normally buy books because I like their cover, but I also read what it's about... that time I didn't! They could just put Leonardo Di Caprio on a hammer and I'll buy it even if I don't need it LOL 10mo

I must say I bought this book just because of the captivating cover (Leonardo Di Caprio helped too!), but it turned out to be an amazing thriller with a lot of mind games, riddles and mysteries.
If you have seen the movie, you could just as easily read the book because -as it always happens- the movie left out a lot of capital parts (although it's a really good one!).
I strongly recommend it!

Books like this are why I prefer to have the actual book instead of an ebook or audiobook. I kept flipping back and forth between the pages when things started to be revealed. It‘s a great psychological thriller.

Mehso-so

#unpopularopinion I actually found this underwhelming. I don‘t know if it was the writing or the plot twist that I saw coming from a mile away, but I‘m a bit sad because I can‘t help but wonder if I read the same book as the rest of Litsy. This was definitely #moremehthanyeah for me. But, another #screamathon read is checked off. Longer review on my blog: https://wp.me/pKWKW-4I

I read the first 25 pages without absorbing any of it. Does that ever happen to anyone else? I probably should have started over, but I read chapters two and three tonight and the story is finally starting to sink into my brain, so I think I‘m good to keep going forward from here, but the first chapter? Yeah...no memory of that at all. 😱

cherinium I just mentioned this book the other day! I was really not enjoying this book at all until the plot twist was revealed. Then, I realized what master manipulator Lehane had been. For me, the twist turned a 2-3 star book into a definite 5! This book is one of the reasons I still have so much trouble bailing on a book I'm not enjoying. I always ask myself, "what if its like Shutter Island, and the ending completely blows my mind?" ??? 2y

1) Shutter Island. Almost exact of the book. They embellished a bit which made it better I think. Also i much prefer the movie ending.
2) Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Jennifer's Body, The Ruins, HP of course.
3) 50 shades of grey. Had a crush on Jamie Dornan since Once Upon a time. I've also seen all of those and Twilight with my mom. Kinda our thing.
4) Popcorn!!!! I like it with nacho cheese. So good!

Another wonderful novel from Lehane, and like Mystic River this is one which can only loosely be considered a crime novel. What starts out with two US Marshals called in to investigate a breakout on a remote institution for the criminally insane becomes progressively darker and weirder. Gripping and horrifying.

This was my second Lehane after Mystic River, and wow, what a gripping, thrilling ride! I was hooked from the beginning, the tensions high as you race through the pages. The main character is so emotionally scarred and you become invested in his character. The story is well crafted and brilliantly told, and boy, was I fooled! (cont. ⬇️)

erzascarletbookgasm The shocking ending leaves you gasping in disbelief. It‘s open to interpretation, and for that, has caused confusion and different camps of thoughts. A cracking read, and I know the film adaptation is equally intense. (edited) 2y

Living in Puerto Rico, she was still able to get my package to me on time before Hurricane Maria hit. She sent a box full of amazing gifts. She let me know that she had forgotten a couple of things in her package, and even though it was not necessary considering everything she is going through over there, she STILL sent me another amazing (TBC🔽)

JenlovesJT47 package with these very thoughtful gifts. She thought it was lost in the mail but it finally arrived yesterday. The candle smells great and I already have plans to hang up the sign in my office where my books are (it's great advice btw!) So again, @Gissy , thank you so much! Litsy really is an awesome place! 🤗📚🤓❤️☺️ 2y
Gissy @JenlovesJT47 I'm so glad you liked the items. I bought these two other thing thinking in you when I was preparing your package so I had to see them because they were for you. Enjoy! 🤗 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Gissy thank you again! Very much appreciated. 🙃😊 2y

Making time to read everyday can sometimes be difficult. Sometimes Justin and "go to bed" as early as 8:00pm just to be still, read, snuggle with Boxer and generally just share a space that is uniquely ours. ?❤️

Thank you Dennis Lehane for breaking me out of my slump! Only about halfway through this thriller I started earlier and I'm beyond hooked. Figured that tattoo and book sort of go together, even if it is upside down. Now if only I could get rid of the drunk frat guys making a bunch of noise outside my building 🙄

Kaye Send them frat boys in my direction. I'll take the broom to them and straighten them out. (edited) 2y
bobregina I saw the movie about two weeks ago and I was 😳😮until the end! 2y

Thank you so much for my #letsgetcozy package! @Gissy I hope you are doing ok in Puerto Rico. Let us know as soon as you can! It's so funny, my boyfriend was just trying to get me to watch The Count of Monte Cristo with him last night. Love the socks! Especially love the mug, I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan and I love cats. 😻 Thank you @cobwebmoth for organizing this! Can't wait to read the book. 📚❤️📚

Gissy #LetsGetCozy I am so happy it arrived on time! I sent the box just before Hurricane María! We still having problems with the mail, the communications and just this week some stores are opening. I bought a copy of that book for me ?Enjoy your gifts. I'm in a couple of swaps but the boxes will arrive a little late because of our situation after a hurricane María. 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Gissy no worries, I'm happy you are ok! 2y

Because sometimes when it's been a hard week, and a spooky reading challenge is starting, you just need to reread one of your favorites. #readersimbibingperil
