The Adventures of Amina Al-Sirafi | Shannon Chakraborty

I enjoyed the adventure and the characters. I love that the MC is a strong woman pirate that happens to be a mom also who comes out of retirement to save a girl. This adventure turns magical and I love the character development. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love this author but this one just didn‘t work. I‘m a therapist and I found the lack of information and lack of empathy for people who deal with mental illness to be appalling, insensitive, misinformed and just wrong. Besides that the plot was just too implausible for me to even keep interested.

Started off a little slow but the premise had me intrigued. I‘m glad I stuck with it. It ended up somewhere I was completely surprised by. Lots of twists throughout and a satisfying end thought provoking ending. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘m a big fan of a good family drama. This one is about siblings who haven‘t spoken for over a decade who have to gather at their family mansion together in order to inherit after their mothers death. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ruthiella I like a good family drama too, they come in many variations too. Have you ever read 2w
TamTracy @Ruthiella No I haven‘t! Thanks for the recommendation! 1w

Found this one a little too similar to other thrillers that I have read. It did keep me guessing a little but I did guess where it was going pretty early on. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ruth Ware is usually love or hate for me. This is the first that I found middle of the road. It was fast paced but also still managed to drag in places. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘m conflicted on this one. On one hand I kept wanting to read it and was interested. On the other hand nothing was really going on and I hated most of the characters. If there was a little more plot I would have liked it much more. It was very character driven and I didn‘t like the characters. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Ooh, I much prefer this version of the cover - the UK/AUS one is so generic 1mo

These Silent Woods: A Novel | Kimi Cunningham Grant

I went into this with the understanding that I was reading a thriller. It definitely was not a thriller or horror. It was a captivating story of a father and daughter living in isolation in hiding. Definitely a slow burn but I couldn‘t put it down. It left me in tears because things/people are not always as they seem. Definite recommendation. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed this one. It had creepy imagery and a very original storyline. It didn‘t have major twists or anything but did have a few directions that were unknown. We kind of knew what was going on as it was happening but that didn‘t take away from the story for me. Aunt Nadine was hysterical and made me laugh a few times. Highly recommend to horror lovers. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It took a while to remember what happened in the first two books but it was talked about enough to remind me who was who and what happened. I loved this book just as much! Found out some new twist and explanations from the first two as well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I expected this to be better and more thrilling. I feel like there was no twist because it‘s pretty evident throughout the story what was going on. I had a hard time keeping up with the dual timelines because it would switch without warning. There were some side stories that really just had no impact on the story but a lot of time was spent on them. ⭐️⭐️

Episode Thirteen | Craig DiLouie

Highly recommend the audiobook because it has a whole cast of characters and audio effects that enhanced the creepiness and overall feel of the book. I loved the found footage meets House of Leaves storyline. It didn‘t scare me like promised but I have yet to find a book that actually does. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

vivastory I thought this was an interesting one, even if it fell apart a bit in the end for me. 2mo
TamTracy @vivastory I felt the same way about the ending. These types of stories are hard to end though. I‘m not sure I would have been happy with any ending lol. 2mo
AmandaBlaze I agree about the ending. I do love found footage books, though. 2mo

The emotion of the story itself covered for some of the unrealistic situations that would normally frustrate me. Mainly the secrets and privacy that just doesn‘t exist in real life. I loved the characters and felt very connected. There is gruesome retellings of domestic violence but for me it added to the emotion. Will definitely check out more by this author. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another great story by Riley Sager. This one has so many twists and secrets that I couldn‘t keep up. I was pretty confident about one of the twists throughout and was disappointed when I was right but then they just kept coming unexpectedly. Loved it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A cult story AND a ghost story??? Yes please! I really enjoyed the story but it was a little long. Could have cut out 100 pages and made it more concise and I would have enjoyed it more. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

vivastory I completely agree with your review. If this had been edited better this would have had the potential to be one of her very best. I still really liked it. 2mo

The Chateau: A Novel | Jaclyn Goldis

This was definitely a twisty whodunit story where every character could have been the one to murder the matriarch of the chateau. I loved the darkness of the secrets that each person was hiding and thought I had it figured out. I had the right person but the wrong reasons! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

One of the best first lines in a book. “I‘ll know it‘s working when he starts to scream”.

A female badass serial killer???? Yes please. This one is a literature professor who allows herself to kill one man a year who have proven himself to be horrible to women.

I liked the storyline and the ending but I had a real hard time with several characters. I hated most of them. Not even the kind that I love to hate. I understand that was the point but it was difficult for me. ⭐️⭐️

The Quiet Tenant | Clemence Michallon

I started this book today and finished it today. I love stories about serial killers and this one had several different perspectives. The daughter, love interest, and current hostage for 5 years. I liked that the hostage is the main character and her perspective is written in second person which I don‘t see often. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The story was entertaining enough to keep me reading. Especially the first half. The writing itself, lack of character development, twists that didn‘t make sense, and mess of an ending are why I rated this 2 stars. If you can get past the plot holes and enjoy the story then you may like it a little more. ⭐️⭐️

Sometimes when books have 2 main characters and 2 POVs I have a tendency to favor one over the other. This wasn‘t the case. I really enjoyed the main characters and of course Wolf. I loved the dark suspenseful storyline and the twists along the way. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have very mixed feelings about this book. I liked the story and the character development and relationships was good. I didn‘t find myself attached to the characters though so it was hard for me to buy into. I also felt like parts were tedious to read and the story felt like it was wrapping up numerous times and then would just keep going and going. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was hesitant to read this because as I read the blurb I thought it was going to be more sci-fi heavy. It wasn‘t! It was very much based on the reactions of people and the relationships and communities. I loved it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
