Without giving too much away, I'll just mention that one or more characters in this just might be a #PerfectIllusion. #AugustGrrrl

The Hollow Man | John Dickson Carr
post image

"Very few detective stories baffle me, but Mr. Carr's always do."
-Agatha Christie
No one can craft the #perfectillusion of a locked room mystery like John Dickson Carr.
The Hollow Man is often cited as his masterpiece.
Dr. Gideon Fell investigates the murder of a man found shot in a locked room with no trace of the killer in or around it.

batsy Never read him and now I want to abandon everything to do so 😆 (it's a rainy, slow day and I'm craving a good locked-room mystery) 2y
rohit-sawant @batsy It's the perfect read for a rainy day! Almost all his books are, really. You'll love Carr. Not only is he ingenious with his mysteries but he also weaves an element of horror into them. I'd suggest starting with Hag's Nook, his first book in the Dr. Fell series. 2y
erzascarletbookgasm I remember reading one of his Dr Gideon's series long ago, can't remember much. 2y

batsy @rohit-sawant 👍 Cannot wait, I always get the itch for a murder mystery when I'm in the midst of some serious books 😁 2y
Cinfhen This sounds great! Stacking and saving for #Scaretober 2y
rohit-sawant @batsy Hahaha. Hope you read it soon! Look forward to your thoughts on it. 2y
rohit-sawant @Cinfhen Great idea! Hope you enjoy it! 2y
rohit-sawant @erzascarletbookgasm I binged on some of his books last year and, with the exception of a handful, only broadly recall the stories. They're quite intricate, aren't they? 2y

#AugustGrrrl #PerfectIllusion I thought of this book where one of the main characters, Stephanie, creates an illusion of herself and her life on her mommy blog and a simple favor asked by her 'perfect' best friend Emily turns out to be not simple at all. Let's just say that several perfect illusions are shattered for and/or by the characters in this book.

Cinfhen Great graphics and book sounds good 😍 2y

I have to admit I didn't care for this one, but I think it fits today's prompt. 😉 #PerfectIllusion #AugustGrrrl

Cinfhen It certainly does 👌🏽💋 2y
Kdgordon88 Glad I am not alone. 2y
britt_brooke @Kdgordon88 It was okay until that stupid ending. Hated that! 2y

Sense of self may be a #perfectillusion. This one sounds interesting. The synopsis mentions social media's role in our ever-change stories, and since I read today that Aziz Ansari gave up the internet, I'm fascinated by the premise!


Affinity | Sarah Waters
post image

Is Selina Dawes a spirit medium or is she creating a #perfectillusion? Affinity is less popular than Sarah Waters' other books - it's slower, gothic and gloomy - but I really liked this one.


Cinfhen Not familiar with the SW title... #liveandlearn 🤓 2y
MadCatRamble This book wrecked me. It such a visceral, emotional, gut punch of a slow burn... I loved it. 2y
Chocamanda It wrecked me too! I was so invested in the main character and the end tore me up! 2y
LeahBergen Loved it. 2y

Shadow Tag: A Novel | Louise Erdrich
post image

So, I don't really have a reading nook, but here's my current read (and an uncooperative kitten) on the "cuddler" portion of our couch, where I sit to read a lot. In this book, the wife thinks she has the #perfectillusion because she keeps two diaries - one her husband knows about and one he does not! We will find out if it really is perfect! #AugustGrrrl #booksandbooks #backtoreading
