Under One Roof | Ali Hazelwood

Cute concept but literally was no arc and felt like a glorified fan fiction

Was gripping and kept me anticipating next twists, but lacked in character connection. Plot ended too abruptly. Wanted more

I really expected more from this one. It seemed too obvious. There weren‘t as many twists as I‘d have liked. Overall kind of a dull read

Plot Twist | Bethany Turner

SO GOOD. I really didn‘t expect this one to blow me away like this. Such relatable characters, just enough surprise and intrigue to keep you interested until the very end.

Another cute romance. Excellent character work. Really enjoyed the formatting and behind the scenes of radio.

The Hunting Party | Lucy Foley

Great suspense. Didn‘t connect with any characters extremely well but was definitely kept on edge the whole time. It was a surprise ending. Wanted more on how everyone turned out in the end

The Book of Two Ways | Jodi Picoult

Started off slow, but really picked up towards the middle. Intriguing, heart wrenching. Solid 7/10. Will never be a favorite but very deep and very thought provoking

Excellent read. Cute but there‘s a deep heart in it. I didn‘t want it to end.

Play Dead | Ted Dekker
Mehso-so

The writing was amazing like Dekker usually is. However this one lacked continuity and a conclusive ending. The ending was confusing and I‘m still not sure what the message was. That being said, I did connect with the characters

Lullaby | Lela Slimani

This was one that was beautifully written but felt incomplete. Felt like things were missing or left out. Well crafted though. A solid 6/10

Was expecting more honestly. Not more than a 6/10 thriller

This was a solid 7/10 thriller. Kind of unpredictable which was nice but I wanted more depth and substance. Still entertaining and worth the read

Honestly this book was too short. I wanted more. Love the concept. Super creepy but such a great hook. Definitely recommend for a good thriller

Carrie | Stephen King

Was this book traumatic? Yes. Was it scary? Kind of. Out of all the phycological thrillers I‘ve read, I really expected such a famous book to be better.

The Cousins | Karen M. Mcmanus
Mehso-so

After loving the other books - One of us is Lying, One of Us is Next, I was disappointed by this one. Too many characters and jumping back and forth, choppy plot line, too many unfilled holes. Not a bad book but not a good one either.

Regretting You | Colleen Hoover

This was a Rollercoaster from start to finish. Dramatic yet genuine and honest. Funny and heartbreaking. Highly recommend.

Usually not a fan of historical fiction, but this one had me hooked. Loved the characters and the plot. Learned a lot and enjoyed every page

Meet Me in Paradise | Libby Hubscher

This book was an easy cute read until about 2/3rd through. Then it jumped from about a 6 to a strong 8 out of 10 for me. Loved the writing style and how connected I felt to the characters.

Could not stand this one. Truly didn‘t understand the point even at the end, only finished because it was a book club book, but it was brutal. Had to skim. Tough to read writing style, didn‘t care about the characters.

Mother May I: A Novel | Joshilyn Jackson
Pickpick

Kept me turning the pages quicker and quicker. Didn‘t want to stop reading so I could find out what happens next. Started out slow but about 3-4 chapters in it really picked up. Lots of surprises I wasn‘t expecting.

The Good Sister: A Novel | Sally Hepworth
Mehso-so

One of the more twisted books I‘ve read recently. I wasn‘t into it to begin with but it really grabbed me near the middle. Solid 6.8/10 pick if you‘re looking for something unsettling and mysterious. Also improved my understanding of sensory processing issues as a side bonus.

Different from my usual read, but very informative and interesting. A great gift for any fan of The Office! Not quick, but enjoyable and memorable… (That‘s what she said)

One of Us Is Next | Karen M. Mcmanus
Mehso-so

Not as good as the first in the series but still a decent pick. Finished it in a day. Wanted more believability in the characters. Also felt like there were too many characters to keep up with that we weren‘t connected enough to follow

One Of Us Is Lying | Karen McManus
Pickpick

So nice to get back to a thrill type book! Still teen YA-type, but good suspense. Wasn‘t expecting the ending, and could‘ve been a better ending, but not a disappointing read. The writing kept me reading and wanting to turn the page

This book was unexpected clever and a quirky fun read. Much more realistic and relatable than I anticipated. Not super heavy but real. Enjoyable characters. Definitely a summer break recommendation

Wow such a good read! Perfect poolside book, but also one you won‘t want to put down. Truly addictive. Started off just sweet and quirky and then quickly turned into something I was deeply emotionally invested in. Cannot recommend enough

Cool for the Summer | Dahlia Adler

While I loved the genuineness of the characters in this book, the overall writing was a little cliche. It was a sweet easy read. Really relatable. Liked it just couldn‘t bring myself to love it.

Perks of Being a Wallflower | Stephen Chbosky
Mehso-so

Read this one cause despite the hype, I‘ve never read it before. Made me uncomfortable to read and maybe that was the point. I appreciate the effort to cover really tough topics from a young perspective. However, it‘s really not super believable and slightly cliche. Kind of enjoyed reading it but really just wanted to get through it.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book! The modern side felt a bit underdeveloped, but the older sections were very interesting. I wanted to know more about the characters. However, overall a very enjoyable read. Would recommend.

Honestly one of my fav reads. Hot, yet sweet, and emotionally deep read. I wanted more. Could‘ve even used more about main characters backstories. But such a solid book.

Sanatorium | Sarah Pearse

Wanted to like this book since I love thrillers and this type of thing. It was a good concept and setting but pathetic twist and bad ending. Also slow and difficult to read. Not a favorite at all.

This was definitely a cotton candy read, but I don‘t regret reading it. Empowering, light hearted, and fun. Made me want to go on a cruise ASAP

I adore this book. Such a fluff, feel good book but I couldn‘t put it down. Relatable characters, great genuine writing style. Beach or lazy day read. So so good.

As a thriller fan, and a fan of the show “You,” I really expected to love this one. However, it felt predictable and fell a little flat. I understand the characters, but they weren‘t believable. I wanted to love it so badly, but it just wasn‘t quite what I wanted it to be.

Outlawed | Anna North

Honestly wouldn‘t have finished this one if it wasn‘t being read for a book club. Truly confusing, contrived, and tried too hard to make a point that wasn‘t even clearly supported. Didn‘t empathize with the characters. Really did not enjoy

review

As thrillers go, this was a solid pick. Probably about a 7/10. I liked that it was fast paced, with strong characters. Good backgrounds and history for them. An ending you don‘t see coming. There were some plot holes I wish could‘ve been filled, and some twists were predictable. But overall a good read

review

Didn‘t know what to expect with this one, but was a sweet heart warming book. I liked the duality of the characters and depth of their stories. Could‘ve had more twists, but was a very enjoyable, touching read.

I started this book because it was free, expecting an easy fluff read. I got so much more than that. Unexpected twists, lovable characters, and more heart than I‘ve ever seen in a book. Definitely recommend.
