Swiped: A Novel | L.M. Chilton

I really enjoyed this audiobook! I loved hearing about the different men that Gwen encountered on the dating app 'Connected' and how things went south with each of them. I did figure out the culprit very quickly into the story by a simple progress of elimination, but it was still fun guessing how it would end and it was a very engaging listen. I loved the narrator and the story was fun, exciting, and definitely entertaining!🌟🌟🌟🌟✨It's a winner!

Swiped: A Novel | L.M. Chilton

I'm getting to the end of this on audio and it has been an absolute pleasure to read/listen to. It is lol funny, clever, and an all around a page turning mystery! I have loved hearing about each date that Gwen, the MC, went on and how each man subsequently reached their untimely death. Still some loose ends to tie up, because I don't believe the current red herring of an ending. Excited to see how it's all ends. I have a few suspicions. Let's see!

Darling Girls: A Novel | Sally Hepworth

Pickpick

I really loved this book. I have been a fan of Hepworth for a while now, but it's so obvious from this novel that her writing has developed to a whole new dimension. The characters were loveable and relatable. I loved Norah, Alicia, and Jessica each for different reasons. I also loved to hate Mrs. Fairchild. The book is fast paced and keeps you engaged by switching back and forth in perspectives and the evening is PERFECT. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

jlhammar I really enjoyed this one. It was my first Hepworth. Which of her books would you recommend I try next? 2mo

This was a fast-paced thriller with characters that you'll love to hate. Fiona is getting married and it's supposed to be the happiest day of her life. She wants nothing more than her new husband-to-be to fit into her carefully cultivated friend group. But Trevor is harboring secrets and they don't all belong to him. In fact, each of Fiona's friends has a good reason for wanting this marriage to fail. Fun, fast paced, page turner. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was lucky to get this as an #ARC from #NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. What can I say, this is a drama packed book! It's not really a thriller but more of a domestic suspense but some parts of it triggered me. Especially, the relationship between Daphne and Jackson... Toxic isn't a strong enough word. Still, I love a good real housewives she drama every now and then and this fit the bill. ⭐⭐⭐✨

The Teacher | Freida McFadden

Wow, this book was insane! I'm the past, I have jumped in the McFadden bandwagon, but this book made me a believer! The characters were delectably hateable and it touched on some seriously intense issues tw: child abuse (don't want to spoil it), but it was done in such a way that it ended up satisfying. Definitely would be a good book club read. The twists in the end will give you whiplash and I loved the nod to Edgar A Poe. ⭐⭐⭐✨

I really, really liked this thriller. I'm a fan of some pretty dark thriller books, but the dry wit in this novel had me laughing out loud. Lucy has lived most of her adult life wondering if she killed her best friend Savvy. After Lucy moves on and leaves her hometown in the rearview mirror until a true crime podcaster comes behind to investigate Savvy's death. Very cool book. Loved the dialogue! 🌟🌟🌟🌟✨

I actually enjoyed this suspense from Michaelides! I see a lot of negative reviews but it satisfied my hunger for some twisted drama. I read this courtesy of #NetGalley and I did enjoy it. There were definitely posts where I was shaking my head at the drama of it all, but that's what it made it a fun and interesting read . 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Read this one immediately after it came out but it missed the mark a little imo. Rosie and Chad are happily married artists. Chad is a soon to be famous actor and Rosie is a writer. After Chad's Uncle Ivan passes away, the couple inherit Uncle Ivan's beautiful apartment in the Windermere a luxurious, old NY uptown building. It's a dream come true for the couple, until Rosie starts noticing strange things happening. Fell short & was just okay. ⭐⭐⭐✨

I grabbed this one on audio and so far, I'm really loving it! It's funny, witty, and smart. I love the unlikable main character and her family! Basically, Lucy's best friend Savvy (short for Savannah), was murdered and Lucy was found the next morning wandering around covered in Savvy's blood. Lucy has no memory of what happened that night and now cute podcaster is trying to solve the case. The characters are interesting and funny and I'm in it now

I'm reading this one, courtesy of #NetGalley and #BloomsburyUSA, and so far I'm really excited about this book. It bounces between 1999 and 2019, telling the story of a woman, Joy, whose rehashing the murder of her college roommate, Karlie. Joy is recently divorced after a horrible miscarriage. She's plagued by the memories of Karlie and she feels certain that the man arrested is innocent. Joy goes on a journey to find the truth. So far, so good!

Currently listening 🎧 to this on audio. I've gotten really engaged in Lenna and Rihannon's relationship and the hold that Rihannon seems to have over Lenna. Some of it seems a little implausible, as Lenna has left her family home and husband to go off into the desert with Rihannon but I'm hoping for enlightenment on this. I picked this up specifically because Brittney Presley is the narrator. Excited to see what's next!

This story is clearly based upon the 'Slenderman Stabbing' and really delves into Maddie's character as she's released from the psychiatric ward after 10+ years. Overall, it kept me turn pages, I was highly invested in the plot and in Maddie's salvation. While there were some disappointments, it was also a really engaging read. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Thank you #NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Wow! What can I say about this book. I guess first I'll start with the trigger warnings- explicit sexual conduct, issues regarding sexual assault and consent. This book will have contemplating and asking questions about is right and what is just. Extremely powerful, yet so many mixed emotions entangled with it. It's a must read! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Thank you #netgalley for the ARC for my honest review. I listened to the audiobook, Narrator was AMAZING!

I enjoyed this thriller even if it did have a bit of a slow start. Lots of twists and turns in this book. It's actually quite shocking in places. Overall, this was not my favorite read, because of the lies, manipulation, and gaslighting. It became convaluted in some parts and I was a little overwhelmed by the final twist. All in all ⭐⭐⭐

This was a wild ride, impressed by this author! if you like twists, this is perfect for you. Haley has the opportunity to be a nanny to twins. This interests Haley as she's a college student studying child psychology and she's fascinated by the idea of how twins interact. The Smith's seem to be the perfect family living in a beautiful beach side mansion. Haley is asked to come watch the twins for just the evening and chaos ensues! Loved the book.

Thank you #netgalley for another page-turner. The setting was dark and twisty which is perfect for this slow burn thriller. I'm a little young to be a true blue Hitchcock fan, but I knew this book was loosely based on Vertigo, so I had some ideas of where the story was going. This helped me during the slow burn phase of this book, but I still found myself surprised by parts. Overall, I really enjoyed the read! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Bye, Baby: A Novel | Carola Lovering

This book kept me on the edge of my seat right from the end of the first chapter. This is a story of toxic relationships and obsession. Carola Lovering did a great job in developing the characters and the concept is something that women can relate to. Billie and Cassie have different goals and aspirations and they've grown apart. Cassie made her peace with this, but Billie is left feeling abandoned by her former best friend. Solid 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I really enjoyed this New release from Michaelides. The narrator takes us on a journey that is part theater and part memoir. I really didn't expect a lot that happened. it was pleasantly surprising. The only thing I can complain about is that the narrator telling the story made the action less palpable somehow. It didn't seem exciting even the content was.. I guess it was just delivery that missed the mark a tiny bit for me. overall, WELL DONE!

I loved the premise of this book; it fell a little short for me. A women's secret society is a great start, but the secrets they were hiding were a bit cliche for my taste. In a book that's meant to encourage girl power, the stereotypical viewpoint of the women irked me. And the end didn't work for me at all, it was just so rushed and unrealistic. it just wasn't as interesting or fresh as I had hoped. Soft pick. ⭐⭐⭐✨

This was my fave Hawkins book yet. I wasn't totally sold by Hawkins on her last 2, but this book was filled with so many twists and turns I nearly broke my neck trying to keep up! Jewels and her husband Camden live a simply life, but neither's history is simple at all. Jewels convinces Camden to visit his childhood home, the Ashby House, previously owned by Camden's deceased adoptive mom, Ruby McTavish. And let the drama begin! LOVED IT! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ⏬

BookLineNSinker It really reminded me of the Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo with a murderous twist. It's sad and, thrilling, and passionate. Definitely recommend this one! 5mo

But who is Mr. Smith and how much should she trust him?? This is a great page turner, I loved the narration and the pacing was just right! Hard pick! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This audiobook was fun but it didn't knock my socks off. I found myself hating all of the characters.. and it turns out there was a good reason for that! the pace was extremely slow and there weren't many thrilling aspects in this thriller..I enjoyed Vacker's narration but its also a context clue. The excitement didn't really get started until the last 25% of the book, that's just not good enough to warrant a better rating. Overall, just okay. ⭐⭐⭐

Malaya has no choice but to turn to the sea witch to hatch and escape plan. Malaya loses her voice but finds freedom. Thanks to #netgalley. 🌟🌟🌟✨

I snagged this one due to my love for the narrator. So far, I'm screaming at the mc for making terrible choices that have led her into a precarious situation.

This book LITERALLY kept me up all night. Eve had redefined her life after the tragic loss of her mother, father, and baby brother in a brutal slaying committed by her older teenage brother when she was just 5 years old. After the killings, Eve's brother smashed his car into a tree and was rendered unconscious to present time. But is everything as it seems? This book is an up all nighter!! Some things were predictable others were shocking! ⭐⭐⭐⭐💫

Started this one a few days ago and it's been a little slow from Natasha's POV, but from the POV of Sophie it's actually really quick. Basically, Natasha is a reporter researching the untimely death of Sophie. Sophie is a nanny for a wealthy family that Natasha knows. There is a whole 6 degrees of separation thing happening here. It's been good even if a little slow in certain areas and I'm pumped to see how it ends!

I Invited Her In | Adele Parks

Only a third of the way through this book and pretty sure I've got it all figured out. And if I do, I'm thoroughly disturbed and disgusted... I've got this on sale from Audible and there's still 8 hours left but I'm in chapter 33 and I think there must be a twist I'm missing where this whole thing was a set up for revenge or at least that's what I'm praying for.. that's the only thing I can stomach at this point.

BookLineNSinker So far, this book has me feeling extremely queasy and unsettled... I don't know what going to happen yet but it cannot be good. I guess the author was going hard for the shock factor and that was achieved... I'm not sure if I'm going to continue reading yet... It might be a bail on principle alone. 7mo

This was a shocking story that blended themes of coming of age, mystery, and horror. There were quite a few underlying messages in this book about being driven to perfection and the tool it take on us as young women. It looks at the beauty industry from an interesting perspective. It was fun but not my favorite. Horror rarely is my chosen genre, but nevertheless, I enjoyed it and was also shocked by a lot of the narrative. ⭐⭐⭐

This book was pretty good. It was a little slow going at first, however, I enjoyed learning about the MC and trying to figure out her deal.

It kept me turning pages and engaged even though the end seemed just weird, i just sat back like what??? 😳🤯 It was a 🍿 moment. ⭐⭐⭐✨
