This book missed the mark for me. It just didn‘t keep my attention like I had hoped. I almost did not finish but pushed through and was disappointed with the ending as well. This book had a lot of hype and I just didn‘t feel it.
1. I hate hearing people eat in any way.
2. I love to travel so anyone who wants to take me on a vacation for my birthday please let me know 🤣🤣🤣🤣
3. I‘m a therapist.....so success is measured by happiness to me. If you are happy then you have achieved success ♥️
I‘m new here so I‘m going to tag a couple people who I know are new like 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.
All I can say is WOW. I personally don‘t believe Ware introduced this book properly as the beginning was horribly confusing. However after about 100 pages or so I was HOOKED. Wares plot reminded me of Agatha Christie‘s and I truly never saw the ending coming
This book was just okay for me. I started getting really frustrated with her situation and I was just ready for it to be resolved. I did really like the ending. After reading this and "In a Dark, Dark Wood" it's obvious that Ruth Ware followed a similar story arc. I wouldn't recommend to a friend or family member, but it wasn't a terrible read. Once the story picked up, I finished it in 3 days. But the first 150 pages really dragged.
I‘m on chapter 9 and not really feeling it. Just finished the Lying Game and it was really great. I had high hopes for this...hopefully it gets better!!!
Was hoping to read In a Dark, Dark Wood but my library didn't have it. This book, by the same author, still caught my eye. I'm diving right in!
A nasty bout of insomnia last night gave me a chance to finish book 48 for the year! According to my "system," I should read a non-fiction selection next, but I'm really in the mood for a thriller, so my system can wait for this one that has been lingering in my TBR for quite a while.
One of these books is not like the others 😂😂
At our local community theater, this volunteer opted to not watch the show for free & read her book instead.
Would you do the same?
This was a quick read and just what I needed to take my mind off of some pretty intense pain. I loved Lo. I lay on my couch and imagined myself her, trapped on a ship, trying to solve a murder, and everyone just thinks I'm a hysterical drama queen. ...This is extremely plausible.
I liked this but heard it is Ware‘s best; my only issue was that the “bad guy” totally just gave the main character Lo the whole story. I would have liked to see more detective work to a reveal, rather than a just bang here‘s the whole situation. Otherwise was good and the surprises are all the way to the end.
Well it took me a while. I've read mixed reviews, and I must agree that there was a significant slump in the middle of the book. By that point though I was already invested. This was a solid ☆☆☆ for me. Not bad, but not the heart pumping thriller I'd been after.
Admittedly, I‘ve been binge listening to cheap murder mysteries with female protagonists. But I liked Lo- she had just the right amount of alcoholism, self-doubt and anxiety to be a solid heroine that you could root for in the end. Imagine “Murder on the Nile” meets Norwegian Crystal Cruises. 🛳 🔪🥂
Lo Blacklock has been given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the Aurora. This boutique cruise is the first of its kind offering passengers an intimate experience of the North Sea without sacrificing a single amenity. Lo‘s journey goes from a dream to a nightmare before she even steps foot on the ship.
The events that follow become progressively worse the more time Lo spends searching for answers.
Very easy read, finished reading in half a day. The storyline was interesting & there were definitely surprising twists towards the latter 1/4 of the book. I was between giving this a “pick” vs. a “so-so” rating as it took about 100 pages to really dive into the “actual” juicy part of the novel, but I believe it was worth it. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5

I can tell y'all, because I know you won't judge me. I packed my suitcase quicker than I was able to decide which books to bring on the plane with me. It's like World Peace depends on my decision. I'm going on a cruise, so I brought the one in this post. And, of course, my Kindle. Hopefully, they'll hold me until I reach my destination. ☺️
