The Girls Weekend by Jody Gehrman is a thrilling popcorn read that delves into how friendships can affect one another even years later. I connected with the suspense of this read, even though there were some aspects that felt over-dramatic, unrealistic, and predictable. However, with the combination of thoughtful description, an action-packed plot, and unexpected characters, this novel proves to be perfect choice for a summer reading list.

Though this is not my favorite Ruth Ware book, it was the first one I read by her and knew I wanted to continue reading her books.

While this wasn‘t my favorite thriller, I did fall in love with the atmosphere! Crisp, October air, colorful trees, creaking cabin, and a solemn lake…

“Sometimes she heard night-sounds she didn‘t know or jumped from lightning too close, but whenever she stumbled, it was the land that caught her. Until at last, at some unclaimed moment, the heart-pain seeped away like water into sand. Still there, but deep. Kya laid her hand upon the breathing, wet earth, and the marsh became her mother.” — Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, page 34

These Silent Woods: A Novel | Kimi Cunningham Grant

Pickpick

These Silent woods is a pungent, page-turning story of the length a father will go to protect his child.

The characters are crafted three dimensionally—they are relatable, have significant purpose to the story.

While the novel was a full, satisfying story, I was curious to see more about the mysterious girl with the camera.

These Silent Woods by Kimi Cunningham Grant is a captivating story of sacrifice, protection, and grace.

5/5 stars

The House Across the Lake by Riley Sager caught my attention with its spooky, autumnal setting. The stillness of the lake, the colorful October trees, the creaking of the cabin, the crisp air—these descriptions captivated me and kept me reading.

While I enjoyed the characters, I was taken aback by the paranormal aspect that took precedence. The story flip-flopped several times, becoming so unbelievable, it was hard to digest.

3/5 stars
