Woman in Cabin 10
Woman in Cabin 10 | Ruth Ware
This was meant to be the perfect trip. The Northern Lights. A luxury press launch on a boutique cruise ship. A chance for travel journalist Lo Blackwood to recover from a traumatic break-in that has left her on the verge of collapse, and to work out what she wants from her relationship. Except things don t go as planned. Woken in the night by screams, Lo rushes to her window to see a body thrown overboard from the next door cabin. But the records show that no-one ever checked into that cabin, and no passengers are missing from the boat. Exhausted, emotional and increasingly desperate, Lo has to face the fact that her sleep problems might be driving her mad or she is trapped on a boat with a murderer and she is the sole witness..."

I finished this one last night. I think I‘ve read enough now to realize her writing is good, her stories twisty, but predictable. This wasn‘t her best. And I‘m supposed to go on a cruise Saturday! #BadTiming 😂😂😂

Book_Fairy_Mary I think they make great beach reads for that very same reason. They aren't overly complicated, so you can put them down and not risk confusion, yet they're twisty and turny enough to keep you interested. 4d
April2 I‘m about halfway through this and really enjoying it so far! 4d

Just took a chance at the book store and grabbed a copy, about to curl up and see if it is an edge-of-your-sear thriller as the reviews say it is. Very excited haven‘t found a good page turner in a while.

One of my favorite books. I can honestly say that I did not see that coming. The “that” in this book took me by surprise and it was utterly amazing. #womanincabin10 #ruthware #didntseethatcoming #refreshinglythrilling #thesuspenseisthrillingme #bookworm

1. Loved it!
2. Turquoise
3. It's a toss up. Playing detective all week on a mold smell in the bathroom, recaulking, cleaning walls and drain. OR visiting family in Blufton SC to swim in 80° ocean the same weekend as Jstin Beber's and Hailey Baldwin's
wedding which for some reason I wasn't invited to😃. We didnt see them but our hotel had the flower crew.
4. Yes, I can do both.
5. Will do! Happy Friday! #friyayintro @annkuch13 @howjessreads

#RedRoseSeptember I am NOT a fan of Ruth Ware (#SorryNotSorry) This “thriller” (#NotThrilling) is set on the #SevenSeas aboard a luxury cruise-ship and it had me wanting to throw myself overboard 🚢⚓️just terrible plot, weak writing and rehashed tropes although plenty of #LitsyLove so I‘m in the #UnpopularCamp

Cinfhen I don‘t enjoy authors who stick to a formula / every book just bleeds into another and I feel that way about her thrillers @Rachel_nyc and I no longer like reading about women who are unreliable narrators and make ridiculous choices for plot purposes. Ugh!!! So annoying 3w

This is a low-rated pick for me. While I was reading it, I was thoroughly engaged, but when I was done, I was left with a lot of questions, as some of the actions of some of the main characters just seemed a little ridiculous. Seriously, is this the easiest way you could come up with to murder someone....?!?

So fun for a one-off read, but not really one I'm going to keep to read again, so if anyway wants this copy, let me know!

This book was SO good! I stayed up till 4 am to finish it. I cant remember the last time I did that. When I finished I was shocked at the time, I had no idea how long I had been reading. Oops. There were so many surprises and it was so suspenseful I couldn't put it down. I can't give detais because I'd hate to spoil anything. I'll be going to the library today forRuth Ware's other books!

Day 31 - #Cabin #WomanInCabin10 #RuthWare #LetsTravelAugust

I found this book to be a quite a page-turner. I did, however, find a lot of the story to be unbelievable but it did make for a good fiction story. I think the characters were a little under-developed and hard to identify with but the plot did hold my attention. I would, however, recommend this book to those who like psychological thrillers. 3.5 stars

OriginalCyn620 I pretty much felt the same! 👍🏻 2mo

98% of this book was great. I really enjoyed the plot with its twists and turns but the end left something to be desired. A bit anticlimactic but still an entertaining read. I still recommend if you want a pretty quick easy read.

It wasn't half bad, and I hadn't expected the twist when it came, but it certainly wasn't as “thriller“ as I had expected. I found Lo to not be a very enjoyable/likeable character. There was SUCH a heavy focus on her diagnosis and the believablility of her story because of her mental health condition that it drove me nuts. I feel like the author kind of used it as a crutch. And overall, she was a bit too nosy for my taste. Overall, decent, though.

jb72 Yeah I wasn‘t thrilled with this book either. I felt like the MC could‘ve and should‘ve known better about many things in the book (like taking meds and drinking). 2mo
LogiKitty @jb72 agreed! Which is funny because she rationalizes it and tries to make a good argument for why it's fine for her (since she's done it for so long) 2mo

This was such a great book. My first read by Ruth Ware and now I want to read all her books. I would highly recommend this book especially if you like thrillers. She is an excellent writer who makes sure that you will continue to question what you know or what you think you know until the final page.

Meh. I really wanted to like it but it just never came together for me. A journalist invited on a maiden voyage of a cruise ship thinks she sees a woman killed. Her pursuit of the truth creates enemies and more questions than answers. Seemed overwrought...but that could have been the narrator. On the line between a pick and so-so, but since I think my opinion could have been different if I read in print, I'm giving a pick.

MelissaSue81 yeah.. I had many questions at the end of this one. I liked it.. but I wanted more answers.
3mo
Rachel_nyc This one didn‘t quite work for me either. Half the decisions the MC made seemed to be to move the plot along rather than be something the character would actually do. 3mo
cathysaid @MelissaSue81 Given the general direction of the book, I think any “answers“ would have been rather implausible anyway. Huge gaps in many areas and exhausting detail in others. 🙄 3mo
cathysaid @Rachel_nyc Exactly. I think it could have been interesting but the MC and the other major female player simply annoyed me! 3mo
BookNAround I didn‘t like this one. I‘m over the unreliable narrator with a drinking or drug problem which causes others to discount their observations. 2mo

I was definitely entertained, but the more I think about the plot, the more problems I have with it. It started to lose me towards the end.

"The Woman in Cabin 10" started strong and was full of suspense but I began to lose interest in the last third as things took as slightly strange turn. It's 3 stars from me!

In this thriller, the MC has a #WindowSeat to what she thinks is foul play - she witnesses a woman fall overboard. Yet, the MC is very unreliable, and no one believes her story. Is she telling the truth?

This has received mixed ratings on Litsy. I actually liked this one. The opening scene had my heart pumping, and I tend to gravitate toward unconventional main characters. #LilithJuly

That moment when you buy a book by its cover and it turned out to be dissapointing. The way the author writes is not that bad but...lord, does she have misconceptions. About fat people, about having a certain age. And she is so anxious and self-centred. Like the Earth spins around her. She seems to have no hobbies, because she observers everything. Every fucking detail.

And sometimes she is shameless. Like kissing a man's pubes. Cmmon.

I wasn't a fan of this one. It started out strong but the pacing of the book seemed off. And I really didn't like the main character.
This was my first book by Ruth Ware. Maybe I'll give her another chance but this isn't a book I would recommend.
