Thanks to #netgalley for the ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was intrigued when reading the synopsis of this one. I don't really have much to say about it, it was one of those ok thrillers, not a page turner, not a and DNF just what I would call a fairly average read. ⭐⭐ #ellerykane #thehousesitter #netgalley #tea_sipping_bookworm #litsy #goodreads #thestorygraph #bookqueen #bookstagram

If you like mysteries or true crime podcasts, Acts of Violet may be a treat for you. I especially recommend reading this one with your ears. Publication is expected July 5. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#acts-of-violet

One ARC reviewed, a handful of new ones in. 🙈🙈🙈

Especially looking forward to the two history books in the picture.

Not really feeling this ARC.

Father and daughter are accused of murdering a friend/colleague. Father is sent back into the very distant past as his punishment. Daughter is trying to find out who the murderer is and how to get her father back.

I liked some of the ideas, but wasn't exactly thrilled by the Sci-Fi thriller.

Pub Day in the US is September 1st.

I found Sarah French to be an intriguing character as one of the first female Royal Marines. I thought the tension was nicely tautened by the claustrophobic atmosphere & simmering mistrust between the crew. It was an entertaining read, never dull, but at times Sarah didn't fully convince as a female character & the 'bad guys' were a little too obvious. 3.5🌟

OutsmartYourShelf My thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Penguin Michael Joseph UK, for the opportunity to read an ARC. #NetGalley

Humor & satire are tricky things in novels. I appreciated the author‘s message and I did chuckle a couple of times, but overall it wasn‘t my thing. I found it too earnest generally. My preferred satire draws blood (Think The Trees by Percival Everett /The Sellout by Paul Beatty). Also, the main character was too unbelievably dense often only to propel the plot. I did like the side characters, however & I‘m glad she ended it realistically.

squirrelbrain Great review! I have this one on #netgalley, after it was on the #camplitsy longlist. It‘s published in about a month in the UK and I‘m not convinced of my chances of getting to it before then….! 🤷‍♀️ 3d
vivastory I agree with you on preference of satire 3d
Ruthiella @squirrelbrain Thanks! I also read it because it was on the #CampLitsy longlist. I think you will like it. I think it‘s a “me” thing. 3d

batsy I like that statement about drawing blood! That's my idea of a good satire, too. 2d

This is very good. It's a mystery/thriller. The narrator is already dead. But she wants you to figure out what happened and tell you her story and the story of the woman that finds her. The cover is beautiful but I have no idea what it has to do with the story.
