Jane Doe: A Novel | Victoria Helen Stone

#adventrecommends day 15!

This one is a fairly quick, lightish read. It‘s from the POV of a psychopath, so might not be everyone‘s cup of tea, but I found Jane‘s quest to bring down her quarry - the man who abused the only person she ever cared about - satisfying on a deeply visceral level.

MY RATING⇢ 4 STARS | GRADE B+
A part of me loved the way this played out and another part of me was exceptionally bored...at least until the last 20%. More of a slow-burn psychological thriller. My feelings ranged from sad to disturbed to anger to huh, no shit...I can't believe she did that.

So, this is how I spent my week. Several times I came really close to bailing (very rare for me). I thought about setting it aside & coming back to it in a week or so. But the thought of future Scott having to suffer on the behalf of present day Scott made me power through. (YW Scott). According to Goodreads this is only the second book I've read this year that I've rated as low as 2 stars. Best part of the book was the drink.

vivastory More constructive criticism: no character development, jumps from action scene to action scene, the humor falls flat, repetitive prose. 2d
Cinfhen Your book and Starbucks are so beautifully coordinated ❤️🖤 2d
vivastory @Cinfhen Thanks! I actually reused this pic I took last Sunday. The picture & the drink (adult hot chocolate) were the best thing about the book 😂 2d

Wow...I didn‘t expect to finish this one so quickly, but I tore through it. Long Way Down was gripping and impactful from start to finish. 100% recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It's not cold here, thankfully, but that didn't stop me from grabbing a hot chocolate & making it an adult version. I started the tagged book on my Kindle last night, but decided to switch to a print version when I noticed that the library had a copy.

LeahBergen What a nice matchy pic! 😄 1w

Oh man. I was so excited to read this because I loved Agatha Christie‘s “And Then There Were None”. I was not disappointed. This book got increasingly more tense and creepy as it progressed which made me read it even faster. I loved it and really appreciate the message it includes related to the teenagers involved. I won‘t spoil it for you😉

Liked the read, story line was a little hard to follow but all around a good book. It was a fast read flows really well not my favourite book.
