This series just keeps getting better and better. I was kinda worried when the last one ended thinking where can she go now with this series. I was wrong. I think this is the best one yet! Don't miss it!

I love Riley Sager's books. I have read all three and they are all great. This one had another surprise ending. If you haven't read her and you like suspense and thrillers, you need to try her.

Finally getting to start this one. Love her past books, but I have seen mixed reviews on this one. Guess I will see if I love, like, or hate it.

All I have to say, is before you start this book make sure you have everything you need at hand, peace and quiet, a comfortable place to read, bc you want want to put this down. One if the best series out there. Slaughter continues to hit it out of the park with the Will Trent Series.

A good Serial Killer read. Suspenseful, page Turner, that keeps you wondering who really is the killer.

A Magical and Whimsical coming of age book in the 1980's. This book will throw heart punches one moment and the next moment make you laugh. Jake reminisces about the summer he turned 12, faced his bully, and found out things about his Uncle Calvin he never knew.

The Art Of Dying: A Ray Henley Crime Thriller is not listed so I am using the above. I got this book from Netgalley.

What an absolutely thrilling ride. Well developed plot and characters. Can't wait to read more from Cavignano.

I am in such a reading slump! Takes me forever to read a book because I just don't want to read. Any suggestions?

Oh, how I loved this book. Milady is the nemesis of the Three Musketeers. This book is full of love, betrayal, spying, scheming, loss and redemption. Who could ask for more in a book.

I have to stop finding new series to read. This is the 2nd one in the Clare Carlson series. Now I have to buy the 1st one.
A dead homeless woman, a scandalized Senator, a Billionaire, a Criminal Lawyer, a Homicide Detective what could these 5 people have in common with a murdered Financial advisor? Great Book!!!

This book reminded me of an old movie. It's set after WWII in Chicago. First time I've read this author. The book seemed to be part of a series, at least to me.

For MATURE ADULTS and GRAPHIC CONTENT!!!

Read with caution because this book will tear your heart and soul apart. Be sure you have some Kleenex by your side.

A very Heart Wrenching 💔 book. Even though it's fiction, it could just as well be nonfiction. Tells story of homeless teen.

Again, MATURE ADULTS. I am talking 25 & up. Read with caution because this book will tear your heart and soul apart 😭😭😢😢

Marc Edwards Box Set is not listed, so I am using this.

Loved this box set. Gutteridge wrote in a way that made you really get to know the characters and feel for them. He let them really grow in ways most of us would or do.

My book set I am reading isn't listed. It's the Marc Edwards Box Set by Don Gutteridge. 6 books in this set, so it's taking a while to read, even though I am liking it. Hope to finish it today or tomorrow. I have a book and a half left, so that my not happen 🤔

The God Game | Danny Tobey

I won this book from a GR Giveaway. Even though my copy was an unedited manuscript, it still was good. I just had to get over the grammatical errors. It's about a group of teenagers that decide to play a game called GOD. A thriller that makes you think about just how much technology could be listening to us and effect our lives.

So I ordered a Kindle today and got the Kindle Unlimited where I can borrow books from their library. I hope I will like it, because I have only ever read physical books.

CoverToCoverGirl Good luck! I own both a kindle and a Kobo, both were gifted to me and I rarely use either(only if I can‘t get a book in print) and have no affinity for either... a lot of other people swear by them though. 5mo
JoScho I was anti e reader for the longest time. Then my husband gave me one and it was a game changer. I adore my Kindle. I hope you like it! 5mo
Monica5 @CoverToCoverGirl will I guess this was kind of a gift. I was looking at books on Amazon and told my hubby that Kindle was cheaper. He said get one. Then I noticed that if I Kindle Unlimited, I could borrow books. 5mo

cherinium If you have Amazon Prime, there is also a selection of books you can access as part of your Prime membership (Prime Reading). Another perk of Prime is called Amazon First Reads. You select one book from choice of 6 that are scheduled to be released the following month. The Kindle version is free, but you can also choose to buy a print copy for a very low price. 5mo
Monica5 @cherinium Didn't know about Prime Reading. I have Amazon Prime so I will have to check that out. Thank you so much for letting me know about it.❤ 5mo
cherinium @Monica5 Sure thing! I've found that a lot of people don't know about it. 5mo

Thank goodness I finished this stupid book. I should have just bailed on it. I didn't like it. I have never read a book that put me to sleep. Of course, not everyone reads the same book with the same title. You may like it. But for me, it's a PAN!

Very sad book. To think you are someone, but find out you're someone else. Unbelievable. Had never heard about this until I saw the book at the library and grabbed it.
