Meh. The plot was ok, but the main character annoyed me. I didn‘t really connect with any of the characters and I found myself just wanting to get through this one. The twist at the end was good, though I figured it out prior to the reveal. I switched between the audiobook and the book, but listened to the story primarily. I‘m noticing others didn‘t like the audiobook, so maybe that was part of the problem for me too. #jpbookreview

Don't Look for Me | WENDY. WALKER

4/5 stars. This was a suspenseful read start to finish. I enjoyed speculating the real identity of Mick. The twist ending was a bit hard for me to believe, but it was still good. #jpbookreview

Every Last Lie | Mary Kubica

Mehso-so

3-3.5 stars. This was suspenseful, but not surprising. Despite the annoying main character‘s quick jump to suspect anyone and everyone of her husband‘s murder, Occam‘s Razor is applicable here and the most logical explanation turns out to be right... I finished it in a day and a half so there‘s that, but I definitely enjoyed some of her other books more, including her newest - The Other Mrs!

Bring Me Back | B A Paris
Mehso-so

2/5 - I have to be honest - I didn‘t really enjoy this one! I have to give props that I was able to finish it in only one day, but that‘s about it. I disliked the characters, I disliked the plot, and I really disliked the ending. Ugh, I‘m moody about it, but I think it‘s because I really liked The Breakdown (by the same author), but this was just ughhhhhh. Not for me.

4/5 stars - finished this book this morning! I really enjoyed the suspense and the twists. I really liked that the story seemed realistic. I will definitely read Barton‘s other two books. #jpbookreview #review #bookreview #thesuspect #fionabarton #katewaters

I See You | Clare Mackintosh
Pickpick

3.5 or 4 stars- I See You was a creepy, realistic thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat. Some of the twists in this one were a bit more predictable than they usually are in her books, but I still hung on to every word, anxiously waiting to find out how it would all turn out.

The Other Mrs | Mary Kubica

Happy Pub Day to The Other Mrs! Thanks to Park Row Books #partner for my gifted arc. This was a FIVE STAR book! The suspense was great, but most importantly the twist fooled me (and that can be difficult when I read so many thrillers!). Highly recommend and available wherever books are sold TODAY!

The Escape Room | Megan Goldin

4/5 stars - This book was suspenseful from start to finish. There are two parallel story lines that run throughout - that of Sara and that of the four people stuck in an elevator. I found myself trying to connect the two and at around the halfway mark I predicted where the story was headed, but I didn‘t know the “how”. Overall, I really enjoyed it and I found the characters to be well developed. I will definitely read another book by this author.

robinb I really enjoyed this one as well....edge-of-seat suspense. 😬 3y

Despite reading a lot of mixed reviews for this one, I ultimately really liked this book. Yes, I agree she didn‘t always make the best decisions and yes, she only partially acknowledges this, but overall I found the book to be interesting and uplifting. I recommend it!

Hooked_on_books I thought it was good, too. And I have yet to meet a person, regardless of socioeconomic status, who always makes good choices. 3y

The Cheerleaders | Kara Thomas
Mehso-so

Meh, this was a bit slow for me. I picked it up and put it down for over a year before I finally finished it. It wasn‘t my favorite, but parts were suspenseful. #thecheerleaders #jpbookreview #minireview #bookreview #review #thegreeneyedreader

LibrarianRyan I agree. I thought it could be so much better 3y
Erinreadsthebooks I tried and didn‘t get very far before I put it down. Wish it was better, so much potential but it just fell flat. 3y
