Learn while laughing. I just read this for a second time and it was even better the second time around. Mary Roach leaves you wanting to know even more! #read2018

Behind Closed Doors | B. A. Paris

I can take a lot in books, mostly because I am a criminologist and investigator, but hurt a dog and I am out. I tried to stick with this book but it is too unrealistic and the animal cruelty is too much for me. There are too many awful realities I deal with at work to read about them for pleasure. Not my thing. #read2018

What She Knew: A Novel | Gilly Macmillan
Mehso-so

Just another predictable crime thriller. If you read it with a British accent with your head I suppose that makes it mildly better. All the usual twists and turns come standard. #read2018

The Last Mrs. Parrish | Liv Constantine

Five stars hands down. You won‘t be able to tear yourself away from the constant twists in this one. Go read it now. #read2018

I found myself wanting to like this book every time I turned the page but I just couldn‘t love it. The whole novel seemed to demand my inner social justice warrior to cry out and in the end fell flat. I think there were just too many unrealistic caveats for someone like me who works in the criminal justice system. Thoughts, all? #read2018

The Whistler | John Grisham
Pickpick

I am a long time lover of John Grisham, having started reading his books when I was 12, thanks to my dad. I can probably even credit my criminal justice career to him. This book is so good and just a testament to the fact that he is not an author who has sold out to ghostwriters. With a storyline about a corrupt judge and seeming cooperation with everyone around her, this is one you will love to the end. #read2018

This book had potential, but the chapters were so choppy and jumped from POV to POV and I couldn‘t keep up. So into the next one.

I just couldn‘t follow this book. I got through three chapters and gave up. The choppy, rotating from character to character style along with different styles for each character and not much explanation for what was going on made me feel like I was reading different books. Not my style.

Picked this up after seeing it in someone‘s top six picks of 2017. Maybe I misread and it was their top six worst picks of 2017. This is the most obnoxious teenage whine-first-world-problems kind of book I‘ve ever attempted to read. Open at your own peril.

I Am Watching You | Teresa Driscoll
Pickpick

Not your typical crime thriller. Lots of twists and jerks and turns. A quick read with an ending you that won‘t surprise you but you won‘t see coming. #read2018

Supreme Courtship | Christopher Buckley
Bailedbailed

This has excellent potential with a star main character. But then the author fumbles the plot and adds too many unnecessary twists that over complicate a book that‘s meant to be funny and lighthearted. Someone else needs to give Judge Judy a literary do over.

The Winter People: A Novel | Jennifer McMahon
Bailedbailed

If you like Victorian horror combined with lots of unnecessary descriptions of nature, this is for you. I did not make it past the first 20 pages.

An excellent narrative of the fall of the working class in Appalachian America and how you have to make something of yourself because no one else is going to do it for you. Hilarious, raw, unforgiving, and heartbreaking at times. #read2018

Are You Sleeping | Kathleen Barber
Mehso-so

As the inspiration for Apple‘s first TV series this book is a little too unbelievable and contains way too many Twitter posts. I want to read a book not social media. It‘s also just a little too contrived. I‘ll be interested to see how they conform this for television. #read2018

Nothing more than a conspiracy theory. If you think our government drove two planes into the World Trade Center then look no further. This author is a nut.

Okay so I haven‘t read the entire book yet because it‘s like a million pages long but this book will open your eyes to so much. This is a must read.

The Life We Bury | Allen Eskens
Pickpick

A bit slow to start and a little bit Hollywood-unbelievable at the end, the protagonist is so lovably awkward you will want to keep following him through his journey to find out how the book ends. #read2018

One of those can‘t put down, fall in love with the characters books. A quick read. #read2018
