All These Beautiful Strangers | Elizabeth Klehfoth

Another thriller that I really enjoyed. A boarding school with an elite group of students with cuestionable morale. Family drama with a disappearance of a family member, a suicide, betrayals and a murder. Is everything connected? Who is lying? What would you do just to keep your image and power? Is everything related with this elite group? It was a fast read. I couldn‘t put it down. A particular situation was so unrealistic to me. 3.8/4⭐️

Mixed feelings with this book. You know who The Butcher is just in the first chapter but the story was interesting how the author was building this character. However, some actions were so unrealistic and some were too predictable. But I liked the writing style as a thriller🤷🏽‍♀️. I can‘t say almost anything without spoil the story. 3⭐️

2nd book in this trilogy. I liked this world of necromancy. In this book Tea continue her journey to find her friend‘s heartglass (no spoiler). This trilogy is so gloomy. Almost every story and journey is so sad. There are no many fun or happy scenes but I‘m still want to know what will happen with these characters, specially with Tea. 3.8⭐️

3rd book in this series. You should read them in sequence. As the other two books, I liked the story idea but there is too much sex. This is the story of Tink, Hook and Peter in a twisted story. Is Hook the villain? There are parts with unexpected clichés since they have this unique, not healthy sex life🤷🏽‍♀️But I liked the story. 3⭐️

I like this author and her writing style. I know their stories can be slow, they are more character driven but with unlikely characters. As in Penance, we see revenge, morally questionable in their motives to justify their actions. I couldn‘t put it down. It was like a study of disturbed personalities caused for the presence of various factors. There social criticism. I can understand the mixed reviews but in my case I liked it. 4⭐️

A cute YA book. Arthur will meet Ben during the summer in some strange circumstances, maybe the universe wanted to connect them? You need to read the story to understand this phrase. Many things will happen that summer between these two characters from different backgrounds. I think they resolved their life situations very well taking in consideration their age, communication is the clue. Funny YA scenes and I liked the end, was different.

As expected in most of Short Story Collection, I liked some short stories more than the others but I found that the ends in these stories were rushed and inconclusive. Well, maybe I should say that I‘m not so fan of short stories in general but I keep trying them. 3⭐️But I like that cover ❤️

The Secret in Their Eyes | Eduardo Sacheri

I saw the audiobook was free and decided to read the book. I really enjoyed this one. Benjamin Chaparro decides to write a book to manage his retirement idleness. He will write about a crime case that occurred more than 20 years ago which he investigated. It has two time lines and I liked that slow character driven writing style. It has that existentialist tone about life. There is a good movie adaptation but with different end. 4⭐️

Gissy The novel has an open ending in case you don‘t like that type of books. The title in Spanish is La Pregunta de sus Ojos.

This novel was for me like a cozy mystery in some way. Everything started with the #MayMothers group. All these women were going to have their babies during that month. They support each other but there are secrets. The author said that the idea came from a group she used to attend. One of the babies will disappear and a murder will occur. The group will make their own investigation. I didn‘t see that twist coming. 3.5⭐️
