Where They Found Her | Kimberly McCreight

I really liked this book! It caught my attention right away and having the different povs and chat room discussions, newspaper clippings, really just brought the book to life. It was a little predictable and I wish it would of gave a little more at the end. But all in all the writing was beautiful and it kept me interested until the very end. 4.5/5 stars, definitely recommend!

I really liked this one, it really intrigued me for how long of a book it was. I did have a few issues, the ending was a little lack luster to me and a bit hard to follow. There was a lot of character development threw the book, and near the end it seemed like a lot of that was lost, which was disappointing. But other then those few things, I did enjoy the book. 4/5 stars

This book was pretty good, I do think some things could have been condensed because by the end I was like alright get to it already. Also the ending just kinda lost me a bit. Really good mystery and also good book dealing with grief. 3.5/5

I really really didn't like this book.. at all. I was so ready to be scared and not be able to sleep and I was SO. LET. DOWN. It was not scary in the slightest, and the story was told very weirdly. Almost like someone made poetry then tried to add dialogue, if that makes sense? This book is not long at all, and everyday I was dreading having to finish it. 0/5 stars sadly.

The Winter People: A Novel | Jennifer McMahon

I really liked this book! I thought it was attention grabbing, had a great story that keeps you intrigued and interested the whole time. But I have one thing that bugged me the ENTIRE book. So the book had two timelines, which I don't mind, but at the end of almost every timeline, it would end on a cliff hanger! Which then made me mad at whatever timeline was next because I was so caught up with the first timeline! Other then that, good book! 4/5

This book was SO SO SO GOOD!! I instantly fell in love with the characters and I read this al in one night, stayed up way past my bed time to finish it! But I could not put it down. This book really reminded me of The Invisable Life of Addie LaRue, but better! Way more depth and folklore! I loved Addie but I think this one even tops that one! 5/5 would recommend this SO MUCH!!!

I actually really liked this one. It's a normal who done it story and usually I find them annoying because everything has been done already. But I loved it, I don't know if it's the writing or what but I really fell into the story, and started to care about the characters. 4.5/5

You ever read a book then put it down and say what the hell did I just read? This was that book. None of the book made sense, and the reveal at the end was suppose to make up for the fact that none of it made sense? What?? I'm sorry but no. You can't write just say a bunch of things that make absolute no sense, then say oh it's because of this, which okay, but what about everything that just made no sense!? 2/5 stars

I really really liked this book. It was very raw and emotional and the main character was so relatable. I loved the two povs and the podcast was super cool so you got everyone's pov at some point. I'm gunna knock off half a start for the ending tho. Won't day why because spoilers, but I didn't like it. 4.5/5 stars.

Little Secrets | Jennifer Hillier

Pickpick

This one was pretty good, I enjoyed it and my heart was tugged on the way anything with child abduction does. There were a few times I was really frustrated with the book when it came to the mom. Also I think this book leads you to who the person is. It's not really a reveal more of like slowly guiding you to it. I still knew way before I think you were suppose to, but over all I enjoyed it. 4/5

I'm going to give this a 2.5 star. Just because I could not connect with the book for majority of the book, and I honestly thought what is the point of this book.. then when you find out, it's disturbing and weird as heck but just couldn't save it for me.

This book was pretty good, I definitely enjoyed it. I know a lot of people say this book was pretty sick, but if you like reading stephan king, this is right up your alley. I kinda figured who it was throughout the book and it turned out to be who I thought it was. But I still enjoyed it and think it's worth the read. 4/5

This book was really good for an ending book. I think I will give it 4 stars though because there was a few things I just didn't like the way if was explained or how it ended. Other than that tho I still loved it.

Ahhh this book was just as good as the first book! I love how this book not only expressed the side of women but also men, and how two wrongs don't make a right. I just love everything about these books. I love the moral compass.

Wow! I LOVED this book! It had such a creepy feel without actually being creepy. It had such a stepford housewives feel to it. I just like all the aspects of this book and cannot wait to pick up the next one! 5/5

This book was okay.. It was in the horror genre but it wasn't scary at all. The first 70% of this book read as a drama/mean girls type of book. And the part that was suppose to be scary, I didn't think it was scary at all. I guess I ended up not liking this book as much because I thought it was going to be way more scary. But it's like a teen 80s book. 2/5 stars

I really loved this book. I love massacre/slasher movies/books and this just checked all the boxes. Yes I could predict what was going to happen, but the book was so fun that I didn't care. Also it does take the first 130ish pages to get to the good part. But after that it gets so fast paced and intense I couldn't put it down. 4.5/5 stars!

This book was good, not great, not okay, just right in the middle. I liked how fast paced it was, also I liked that when you were given a clue, in the next chapter the mc was already looking into the clue. It kept it going. I thought 1 half of the who done it, was fairly obvious. The other half I didn't see coming. But there are still passages from the book that I don't know who wrote it, that bugs me. Not as good as silent patient, 3.5/5

This book was pretty good. I wouldn't really say it was thrilling, you pretty much knew what was going to happen before it did. But even with that, I still really enjoyed this book. It kept me interested which was surprising since none of the characters were likable. It was a fun read! 4/5 stars

I can't put my finger on exactly why I loved this book so much. I thought it was written very well. Usually when you read a murder mystery you get a feeling of who it was or wasn't, but I honestly didn't trust any of the characters in this book, I was keeping my eye on all of them. I didn't think it was who it turned out to be, but the extra twist at the end, I kinda rolled my eyes, I thought it was just a bit much. 4.5/5 stars

This book was soo cringy. The way the teenage characters talked was soo bad. It was so stereotypical. You could definitely tell someone older wrote the teenagers. I didn't know who the killer was, but once I knew, the ending was very obvious. I'm going to give this a 1.5 star just because I didn't figure out who the killer was, but this book was very hard to get threw. The cringe factor was very high.

So I didn't know this was a classic or anything, I just saw haunting of hill house and its spooky season and decided to pick it up. Now if you're looking for a spooky haunting book, this is not it. There was absolutely nothing spooky or haunting about this book. If you want a classic, it will be right for you. But I'm giving this a 1 star just because I was very disappointed the whole time because I wanted haunting.

Yuki_Onna 😬 It's on my TBR as I love haunted house stories... Therefore, I hope I won't agree with you this time... 😝 4mo
alecia3dixie For your sake I hope you love it! Lemme know how you felt after you read it 4mo
Yuki_Onna @alecia3dixie I will! 👍 It might take some time till I get to it though. There are so many books on my TBR and reading isn't a priority in my life atm... 4mo

I didn't mind this book at the beginning, I was enjoying it. But it wasn't really thrilling at all. And the ending was so anticlimactic, and it just ends. No explanation of why anything happened or what happened to the others. Nothing. Just done. And for all that build up for that ending? Soooo disappointed. 1.5/5 stars.

Allkat Agree. Just finished this. Weird disappointing ending🙄 2mo

I didn't really connect with this book. I didn't mind the beginning but it really lost me as I kept going. I didn't feel connected to the characters, there were creepy moments but it was really confusing. I felt like it was obvious what was going on, but then nothing was wrapped up. I just felt like there should have been more explanation. There were too many things left unsaid. 2/5

This book was okay. I liked it, but I just wanted more. I felt so much of it was predictable to the point I was rolling my eyes at some parts. It was a very fun and different take on the tale, but I just wanted more and wanted to be more surprised. I hope the next book offers more than this one did. Still a good read tho if you like re-tellings! 2.5/5

I did enjoy the characters in this book, and how well it was written. Other than that, I didn't like much else. The story is told from 2 different view points, but you will read one point of view and then have to go back and read it all over again from the second girls point of view. It was soo annoying, I just did not care if I had both view points. And the ending? There were a few things that I didn't expect but not enough to save this book. 3/5

Oofta, I'm sad I'm rating this book so low, but I hated it. It was way to short for what the author wanted to talk about. There were sooo many really good discussion topics in here, but none was talked about for more than a paragraph. And it was SO CONFUSING, I read and watch a fair amount of paranormal stuff and I was confused threw this whole book! By the end I didn't care, I had no idea what was going on and I was over it. 1/5 stars

Wow for such an important topic this book fell super flat. I felt like it would be about normal people, but every character took everything to the extreme. Good girl? No she is a SAINT. Guy who gets jealous easily? No he gets extremely mad all the time. There is 6 characters so I could go on. But none of the characters were relatable and I feel like the author just tip toed around subjects instead of actually talking about them. 1/5 stars

I loved the divergent series and I loved the carve the mark series, but this book just fell flat. I liked the first couple stories but then the rest were all set in carve the mark universe and it felt exactly the same as that book. Like Veronia you did this already? And I just couldn't connect to any of the characters. 2/5 stars

I wouldn't have marketed this book as a Thriller. I didn't find anything about this book thrilling. I thought it would have been better marked as a contemporary fiction. It pays homage to mother in laws and daughters in laws. I've been blessed with having an amazing mother in law, but I did like the story of the relationship between the two and their differences. 3/5 stars

This book was sooo good! It was 368 pages and I could of even read more! The ending was wrapped up a little swiftly, I know the author probably didn't want it really long, but I felt like it could have have longer and I wouldn't have minded. The writing is absolutely beautiful, I felt like I was right there Bram solving the mystery with her! Fans of Home Before Dark by Riley Sager should definitely pick this one up! 5/5 stars

This book was not for me. I just thought it was so confusing and so boring. I didn't understand what was going on most of the time. And at the end of the book it all came together and I understood. But I just didn't feel like it was worth listening to for just the end to finally figure out what the heck you've been listening to. I just wanted the book to end so bad. 1/5 stars

I don't think this book was for me. I saw it had a lot of good reviews, but I didn't think it was atmospheric, I just thought it was plain weird. And honestly some of the relationships made me feel gross. I hope you like it, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. I did give it 2 stars because I thought the ending was a bit poetic. 2/5

Really good book! The beginning caught my attention right away. Then the ending seriously popped off! I did not expect the killer to be who it was. Then it was just so twisty. I loved it! I am docking a star because it did lose my interest in the middle for a little bit. Great for a debut novel! 4/5

This book sucked. There is no other way to put it. Its suppose to be about 2 best friends, they just hurtled each other with insults the entire time. The first 130 pages is all about hiking and camping. I was like come on, get to it!! Then it finally did and how unrealistic!? I didn't believe a single thing that happened. And the moral of the story was that every man was out to get women? What? Not only is that stupid its pretentious. 0 stars.

LitStephanie LOL, I am loving reading the range of opinions on this book. Looks like a bunch of you read it together. Since it is short, I might just have to get it just to see why it provokes such strong reactions! 3mo

I absolutely fell in love with the main character Fern. Also Wally was an amazing character. This book didn't feel like a book, it felt like I was there. You could definitely see what was going on way before the reveal. But I think you were suppose to. I got so furious reading this book because it was so plain to see but the characters couldn't. And a book that can make you feel furious, is a great book. 5/5 stars. Loved!

I know a lot of other reviews for this book says it wasn't thrilling enough or was nothing new. But for me, I thought this book was terrifying. It's not something farfetched or out of this world. It's something that could and has happened before. This book had me going threw a lot of emotion, for anyone who remembers 9/11, this book would be an emotional one, it was for me. I thought it was haunting and horrifying. #GoneButNeverForgotten ❤ 4.5/5

Sadly I'm going to have to give this one 2 stars. I liked the first one but this one was just too lengthy. I got about half way threw the audio and thought wow that was a good sequel, then it went on for another 8 hours. Near the last couple hours and I just didn't care anymore and just wanted to be done with it. There were so many things that could have been cut. And I just didn't like the plot.

The only negative I can say about this book was it could have been shortened immensely. It could have been shortened and not taken away from the story, and I think make it better because it would have been more fast paced. But over all I really did enjoy the story, it gave me Avatar feels. 3.7/5

This is probably the best book I've read this year, if not, of all time. I am so impressed! Every single time there was a twist I audibly gasped! I never picked up on any of the twists even tho they were in my face! I loved this book SO MUCH!! Spectacular writing! 5/5!!!

It was so creepy too, especially since I have a fear of water I can't see threw myself. I am knocking a star because it felt long and rambled a lot and could have been shortened. And I feel like the ending should have been explained better. I'm still confused.4/5

Okay so let's start by saying the intro to this book was waaay too long. I almost fell asleep a few times because it was that boring the lengthy. Then the "thrilling" part comes and it was the biggest let down ever. There is nothing thrilling about this book expect the maybe last 10 pages, and even that is subpar. I might have liked the ending more if the rest of the book didn't suck so bad. And it just kept repeating EVERYTHING. 1/5 stars
