How can a book about revenge have so much heart? Cosby has written a book that will last with me for a long time to come. This book should have received every award it has to date and then some and is worth every bit of hype as well. 5 ⭐️+ #botm

This was a great mystery with strong female characters. The switch in narrators and perspectives was well done. Considering all the mysteries I read, the fact that I couldn‘t anticipate the ending is a huge kudus and made me enjoy this even more.

I really enjoyed this haunted house/horror novel. Forbidden love, a sexy priest/witch and a strong female character made this a must read for me. #botm hasn‘t let me down so far this year and has exposed me to really great books! Happy Mother‘s Day to all you mom littens.

I‘m all ready for book club‘s discussion in two weeks. I was very intrigued by this plot…I don‘t want to spoil the ending for anyone but will say that the ending left me wanting more but was also exactly what I should have expected.

This was a book that looks at the complexities of consent and privilege packaged in a thriller that keeps you turning the pages. This is now a Netflix series as well!

Something about this memoir just didn‘t work for me. I was really intrigued about the elements discussing the Title XI case but was less interested in the author‘s family history. I respect that she had to tell that story as well though. #botm

I picked this book on a whim from #botm and I am so glad I did. This could easily end up being my favorite read of the year. A story that emphasizes the strength of women and their bonds will stay with me for a long time to come. I give this book all the ⭐️.

A thoroughly engaging mystery set in the 1970s comic world. I was intrigued by the mystery, invested in Carmen, and loved the rich details about comic publishing. The actual Lynx comics interspersed throughout were an added bonus that really added to the fun of reading this.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the ARC in return for my honest review.

The mystery/crime aspect was intriguing and I wanted to like this more than I did. Ultimately mixing this with the supernatural aspects didn‘t work for me. This was my first St. James book so I‘m going to see if I like others. #botm March

Mpcacher Her previous two books had more subtle supernatural elements...you may like them better. 3mo

A great twisty thriller that I finished in a day and would make for a great beach read. At times I felt the story line was a bit repetitive but the unexpected twists and turns more than made up for that. If you like celebrity culture and the toxic undercurrents of fame this is for you. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC in return for an honest review.

I absolutely loved this book. Written like true crime and utilizing true parts of the author‘s childhood and early 20s made this one of the most unique novels I‘ve read. Reminded me of True Crime by Knox which I really liked as well. Highly recommend! All the ⭐️s

An unreliable narrator and murders committed as an homage to eight murder mystery books…definitely an interesting read. The ending was sad to me, yet I don‘t want to ruin it for anyone. I have the UK edition hence the differing title.

I felt this domestic thriller was repetitive in its message and in its plot points. The wrongs of men ignored by women in their life for far too long results in….this? I just can‘t get behind this plot line.

I was hesitant about this book and from the first page realized I shouldn‘t have been. What an incredible debut by this author. I‘m hopeful she writes another soon. I loved these women, their friendship, dreams and their struggles overcome; as a woman I felt this book deeply. #botm

For this thriller I am leaning towards a “so-so” given the twists seemed implausible to me. Some twists I guessed, some surprised me, but overall it felt like way too many that it leaned towards the absurd. Elf by my mom , a favorite decoration ❤️ Dec #botm

This wasn‘t a bad book but I struggled to remain engaged. The characters were hard to root for and had little redeeming qualities…and the end was depressing but very realistic. Not like Friday Night Lights for me although they tried comparing it to that in synopsis.

I enjoyed reading this book that was selected as our book club pick and look forward to discussing it with the group. I guessed at the reveals but the emotional growth and life of Evelyn more than made up for the anticipated plot points.
