I bought his book yesterday while picking up my order at my local bookstore. I started after dinner last night and only stopped to sleep. I loved it! Mackintosh isnt breaking new ground in terms of subject matter, but it's her unique voice that makes this book a worthwhile read!

Would really rather not be at work today, so I‘m listening to this #newyearwhodis audiobook and hoping it makes me a bit more grateful for the job I have! 😬 Also: BLACK FRIDAY MASSACRES?!

4/5🌟Fiercely Feminine Dystopian. 3 sisters live in seclusion, cult like circumstances, taught that men are toxic. The writing is excellent! Kept me completely captivated. The story was intriguing and mysterious in its own way. Move along slowly, but I was not bored, eager to find out what would happen to these sisters. And the characters were intriguing. The ending felt a bit rushed in my opinion. I wasn't let down, it just felt abrupt. #bookish

A very good post-apocalypse book, but not quite the murder mystery thriller the cover and blurb make it out to be. I really enjoyed it, don't get me wrong, but it was definitely more like Station Eleven than the murder mystery I was told it would be. Still, because I am not a big fan of gruesome and sad post-apocalypse I really liked it. It has aromantic representation as well, and deals with the nuance of emotions quite well in my opinion.

I liked this one, although the ending seemed a bit rushed. Books like this, as I‘m sure they‘re supposed to, do make me think ‘what would you do?‘ And I know I‘m much too much of a wuss. I‘d like to think I could be a badass but really I‘m too scared of the dark to be able to survive this kind of end of the world scenario!! A fun spooky, who can you trust kind of read!

I've been so curious about this book and was excited to finally read it. It was darker than expected. I like the world that was created - recognizable but different. I think this book tried to hit on too many different hot button topics to be really enjoyable to me. Still glad I gave it a read! I did listen to the audio and it was okay.

One of my goals for 2020 is to post whenever I finish a book, especially ones that I love! This was a gift that I received and am so thankful that I did as it was wonderful! #1of2020

I didn't hate this book but I didn't love it either. I am on the fence... it's a tough read. I am going to have to sit with my feelings about this book for a while, but for now I am giving it ⭐⭐⭐

This book was disturbing and compelling. I couldn‘t stop reading it. Sort of a post-apocalyptic, post-feminist setting, a little desert-islandish, that turned out to be not what I expected. I half-guessed what was really going on, but not all the way. The dad was a real piece of work, is all I have to say. I also wanted to know more about how the family ended up on their island in the first place, which never got fully explained.
