Nine Perfect Strangers | Liane Moriarty

#NinePerfectStrangers #LianeMoriarity #NewYearSpecial #20in4 #Readathon #BookSpinBongo #December2021

Started this early in the month and wanted to finish it before year‘s end. Nine people are at a remote health resort for 10 days and don‘t realize how their lives will be changed. It started out slow but got very interesting towards the end. This is a character-driven story which led to a tv series. Definitely a study of human behavior. Amusing!

Stay Close | Harlan Coben

#StayClose #HarlanCoben #DashingDecember #Readathon
#BookSpinBongo #December2021

Megan Pierce is a soccer mom with two kids and a perfect husband but a bit wild in her younger days. Ray Levine is a documentary photographer and at age forty he finds himself in a dead-end job. Jack Broome is a detective who is working on a cold case of a local husband and father who disappeared 17 years ago.

EadieB These are 3 lives that will crash together and their hidden secrets from the past will explode and they will find out that there is a fine line between one kind of life and another.
I have read most of Coben's books and I love his humor and wit. His characters are always very colorfully-filled with flaws and secrets. His plots are interesting with lots of twists and turns.

EadieB This one was a bit of a slow-burner and could have been a bit shorter but it did keep me engaged. I was surprised at the killer but there were clues along the way. This book proved once again that Coben is the master of domestic suspense. I look forward to reading some of his other standalones that I haven't read yet. 9mo

I Know You | Claire McGowan

#BookSpinBongo #NovelNovember

Rachel finds a body in the woods and is considered a prime suspect because the victim is identified as her boyfriend's estranged wife. 20 years ago, Rachel was Casey, a young nanny trying to make it as an actress in Los Angeles. The family she worked for were brutally murdered and all the evidence pointed to her and she went to prison.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 10mo
EadieB She narrowly escaped the death penalty and managed to free herself on appeal and changed her name to Rachel. Now she‘s fighting to save the life she‘s spent years putting back together. Was her discovery in the woods really just a coincidence, or is someone framing her for murder? Someone who knows she is Casey, and wants revenge. This book is a hard-to-put-down page turner with interesting characters. 10mo
EadieB The chapters switch back and forth from 20 years ago to the present. The suspense builds with surprising twists. It kept me guessing until the very end. I have read and enjoyed all of McGowan's books including her Paula Maguire series except for the Killing House which I will be reading very soon. I would like to thank NetGalley and Thomas and Mercer for a free copy for an honest review. 10mo
Andrew65 Great review. 10mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Thanks! 10mo

1860. This is a true story of the historical battle for women's mental health rights. Elizabeth Packard's husband of twenty-one years feels increasingly threatened by Elizabeth's intellect, independence, and unwillingness to stifle her own thoughts. He makes plans to put his wife back in her place by committing her to an insane asylum. There are many rational women on her ward who have been committed in order to keep them in line.

EadieB Elizabeth's refusal to be silenced and her ceaseless quest for justice challenged the medical science of the day, and led to a giant leap forward in women's human rights. I enjoyed this book but thought it could be shorter as it repeated facts too many times. If you enjoy stories about forgotten women of history, then you will enjoy this book. 13mo

Unless I finish book 16, which I will not, this is my #bookspinbingo card for March. Not too shabby. Actually, it's my best month so far. I finished 18 books.

My five star reads were: The Nickel Boys, The Four Winds, Dark Horses, and Migrations.
Least favorites: Watching You and Savage Row

Book was part of HP Magical Readathon on April couldn‘t finished it. I didn‘t like author‘s anecdotes with pts. Maybe due for pandemic lockdown. Now I could. It is about his experiences as an intern, residential and then working in the field. He criticizes the British health system, the bureaucracy to receive services, how hard it is for them. Some anecdotes are funny. I don‘t know about certain comments😬explained why he abandoned the field. 4⭐️

"As loco as a three tailed cat in a rocking chair factory." Excuse me, what?! There's an obligatory Artemis scene, a bonus scene with Acheron & company, and cameos by Nick, Sin, Zarek, & Talon, but this still feels so far removed from the Dark-Hunter series that I was Bored. This book takes place in Nevada and introduces Native American mythology to the DH world. We're a long way from New Orleans, Greek Mythology, and shifters. ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick William Jessup "Sundown" Brady is a mouthful & people refer to the cowboy hero as any & all of them. Abigail is the insta-love interest who killed other Dark-Hunters because she was told they're bad. A shitshow all around, even narration felt offputting with his women sounding annoyed or doing that thing where women ends a sentence like a question when it isn't. I hope this is a blip in the world & we get back to business as usual quickly. 2y

I really really really hope there are more Darius books. I want to spend more time with him. I love how the author is honest about different topics that teens face and struggle with. I also love have Darius stood firm on what he believed in!
