This started off really good and I was intrigued by the story. But there was one part about about 75% in that just seemed really out there (and somewhat unnecessary), and the story really went off the tracks after that. 3 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is such a fantastic series, set in Ireland and centering around Detective Sargeant Cormac Reilly. This is Book 3 in the series and is my favorite so far! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A really great serial killer thriller! Set in London with a great protagonist and plenty of action. The next book in the series is due out this year, and I will definitely be reading it immediately!

Unhinged | Thomas Enger, J Lier Horst
post image
Pickpick

I legit read this book in 2 sittings yesterday. This is the 3rd installment in the Blix and Ramm series and it blew me away. It was a great crime story but was truly much more about the emotion of these characters- something not typically seen in Nordic crime fiction. Highly recommend this series to anyone interested in sampling this genre. And the ending.... I NEED book 4 ASAP!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Litani | Jess Lourey
Pickpick

This is the third book I have read by Jess Lourey and, wow.... she is a master of writing about small towns with dark secrets. A warning that there is some heavy material in here, which could be upsetting or triggering. But I did enjoy the mystery and the protagonist, Frankie. A quick read and page-turner! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I flew through this one! Jessica Niemi is a great protagonist- a brilliant detective with a dark past that comes back to threaten her in this book. A great thriller/police procedural set in Finland. Definitely recommend this series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

One more to go on my challenge for the year!

My latest journey with Roland, Eddie, Susannah, Jake, and Oy has ended. This is my 4th or 5th time through this series and I love it more each time. I will continue to re-read this every few years. Looking forward to revisiting the other Dark Tower-adjacent books as I continue with my #stephenkinglonghaul! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I didn't find this as engaging and fast paced as I expected it to be. The premise was cool but didn't hook me in like I wanted. I did enjoy Simon and Kara and their banter made me laugh several times. ⭐⭐⭐

Billy Summers | Stephen King
Pickpick

Man, I sure loved this book. Billy is a fantastic protagonist. The out-of-nowhere, perfectly placed twist in the middle of the story (spoiler in the comment below) was just fantastic. And, since King is (in)famous for his endings, I must say he nailed this one. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

amywithbooks The addition of Alice, completely out of NOWHERE, was perfect. What a pair they made. And, the mention of the overlook hotel! Loved it. 5mo
