Sadly, I am not loving this like most people have. 100 pages in and I‘m not that inclined to pick it back up. I think I may have got my reading slump.... 😫

It‘s always so hard to rate a book when it deals with such hard topics. But ultimately this fell flat for me. There Were things that were done right and then things that were lacking.

Let me start off by saying I look forward to a Riley Sager book every summer. I was finally able to get my hands on this last week. I put everything else down so I could start this right way.

With that being said, sadly this missed the mark

Bklover Enjoyed your review. I like a good thriller too but I will definitely skip this one! 2mo
Amaryie @Bklover I had high hopes for this. But it really just was not good. The plus was that it did read fast, the downside being it was just all over a mess. 2mo

Beartown: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

This stirred up a lot of emotions for me. Being a woman and watching this violent act happen and then watching the outcome of it was very hard. Unfortunately, in today‘s world, an individuals status in society, among peers, their capabilities to become someone of status, becomes more important than the crime they commit.

I enjoyed this one. Quick, fast paced read. Not without its flaws. But loved the idea behind this. Reminds me of Hocus Pocus but that‘s ok, since it is one of my favorites. This could be an annual October read for me.

When you have no idea what to read next. an anthology, an ARC and two YA novels you have been meaning to get to. Along with a shelf of over 100 books (and counting) left to read. Reading all the books is overwhelming 😫

This is what I have wanting in a thriller. I have been in such a dark, disturbed mood lately when it comes to what I choose to read and this fit the bill. And it did it so well. If you have been looking for a non typical thriller this is for you.

Welp, this was a DNF. I did not like the writing style. All the characters were beyond likable, they were just downright ignorant, childish, spoke to each other worse than 3 year olds. I‘ll pass on this one.

Love & Luck | Jenna Evans Welch
Mehso-so

This was an okay read for me. YA is hard for me. I don‘t relate, but have to remember that at one point, not so many years ago, I did relate. I had those feelings, made those mistakes. I enjoyed the characters, the relationships, the rebuilding of relationships. I am opening my reading boundaries, and this book helped me to that.
