A very good psychological thriller. Truly had no idea what was going on until I finally figured out the big twist. Thoroughly enjoyed this one!

I love their writing, and have enjoyed their other books. I didn‘t hate the book, and I was ok with the couple individually just not together. Can‘t wait for the #camplitsy discussion.

I did really like the book, but I wish it were a bit longer to explain more of the background elements and spirits of the story.

I thought I figured out the big twist a little about half way through, then thought it would be too “twisted” to be right. But, turns out I was right. 😳

Taking these physical books, and a Kindle full for a week long family beach vacation. About an 10 to 11 hour long drive each way, so I should have plenty to read.

#AuthorAMonth I can‘t express how maddening this story is. All too often this situation played out this way. I‘m ashamed I put off Baldwin‘s works until now, but so happy to correct this. 5 ⭐️

I like this cozy series overall. Yes, they are pretty predictable, but they are perfect palette cleansers for me between more “serious” reads.

The Nature of Witches | Rachel Griffin
Pickpick

Clare is a rare Everwitch, the first in a hundred years. Her magic can be tied to every season, whereas other witches magic is strongest in their season. Every time she tries to gain control of her magic together with other witches, it targets and hurts those she loves the most. Other witches are being depleted of their magic and dying trying to control the atmosphere where unpredictable temperatures and storms are happening. She must get control.

MrsV This was a review of an ARC through NetGalley. Out 6/1 1y

I could never imagine being so closely associated with a serial killer! I had to remind myself a couple of times, that she didn‘t have all the information about Bundy as we do today.

All in all, not a bad month. Wanted to get through one more, but looks like February wii get off to a quick start.

P.S. I‘m very jealous of you guys who can read 10-20 or more books in a month. I am in awe!!

Fast paced thriller with good twists to keep you on your toes. A few were predictable, and the racist language was not needed, but all in all a good read.

1. Reading as much of tagged book as possible before it‘s returned to the library.
