This book was thrilling. Jack and Alison are great characters with badass personalities. I'm extremely satisfied with how the book ends. The flow of backstory mixed with character dialogue and plot was done seamlessly.

I'll definitely be checking out more of this author's work!

4.5/5

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie

Not as exciting as I originally thought it would be. I understand some of the reviews saying it felt as though Agatha Christie didn't choose the murderer until after she had finished writing. I enjoy being able to pick up on clues along the way and solve the mystery too. In some parts it was difficult to remember all of the characters, their personalities were meshed together. Especially the men. Overall I give this book 2.5 stars.

I enjoyed this Lucy Foley novel. The main character was pretty reckless, which, at moments, got a little annoying. But overall it was a great mystery to read. The plot twist was totally unexpected as well! There were some things that I ended up predicting happening but that's part of why I enjoy reading mysteries!

I really enjoyed this read. The writing was very descriptive. I could easily visualize all of the territory as well as the interactions between characters. It was like I was inside of a Navajo mystery. This book has gotten me back into the mystery genre.

Reminds me a lot of the Guest List. Had some good twists and turns, kept me on my toes! Lucy Foley makes great characters that you love to hate.

I hope Heather & Doug have the happy ending they deserve.

This story was a little more slow than the first. It also had a lot of parts in it that made me angry. Just talk to each other! Trust each other! Stop being so stupid! And that ending.. makes me so angry! Now I have to read the last one. 😅 I'd rate this a 3/5 compared to the first. It's not bad- I still enjoy the writing. The story in this one is just.. it made me frustrated!

An interesting twist on how to view humanity. I initially thought I wouldn't like the spiders, because you know.. they are spiders. But... It was extremely interesting reading through their evolution of technology and culture. All the while the humans were essentially evolving in reverse- going back to their war torn ways. The ending was interesting, I'm curious to see where the next book takes these children of time.

Out of the other books in the series this one was the hardest to get through. It was very long, a lot of training, war, more training, war. The ending I enjoyed reading, the way it almost ended would have made me super sad. We love happy endings in this house.

Wow. This book. It had everything, it left my heart racing and my eyes glued to every page. EVERY page was a thrill. Took me 6 days to finish. I could not put it down. This series competes for first place favorite- time to see where the rest of the series goes. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Wow this book was amazing! I listened to most of it on audio but then bought the series and read the rest from where I left off. At first I really didn't like Feyre as a lead character. But I definitely warmed up to her after awhile. Can't wait to read the rest of the series!

Favorite character so far: Rhysand. I stand my case

Absolutely outstanding. This is a book everyone should read. Being able to look into the life of a young teen with autism as he faces life's challenges was so interesting. The author did a great job of creating a character that you truly care about.

Holy moly! I absolutely loved this book. It was full of twists and turns, romance, mystery, and thrills. I loved the slight fantasy element, it had me wondering what was real and imagined. The author did an amazing job keeping my attention the whole time. The ending had me holding my breath. A great read to end July with. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I really enjoyed this short read. It drew me in with a mystery and led me on with a story of a man and his relationship with others, and how those relationships can change their lives.

"Gravity is the anchor that pulls us down into our graves."

"Perhaps in their time if dying, everyone rises."

I give this read ⭐⭐⭐

I enjoyed how every chapter took place from the perspective of a different character. There were some points in the story where I would get the two ghosts confused. I enjoyed the mystery of what happened in the lives of the characters that made them who they are but the whole story I felt was just lacking something. Not really a chilling story, more so just a lackluster haunted house with a very dramatic family that needs to seek therapy.

Pretty good, a very unique take on storytelling. I liked the small references to Christianity. The ending was kind of confusing. Where did the parents go? I also was a little bit confused in terms of the hurricane and the apocalypse, was the apocalypse also happening or was it just an inflated view of a natural disaster from the perspective of rich youth? Well, interesting and short read none the less! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book was fantastic, the story was unique and interesting. It's quite large however, and most of the nail biting happened at the end. But the build up was worth the wait! If you're not a fan of gore I still think you'll be okay reading this book. Some details can get gruesome but just remember it's only a story!

I don't even know what to say about this book. I don't know what to rate it. It's a serious book, not some book that makes you laugh or feel good. This book does a great job of making you feel bad and like crap the whole time. Travis and his life experiences reflect Jason Myers and his life. I feel extremely sorry for Myers. What a crappy life. (I finished it in 2 days though which is a record) it kept me intrigued the whole time.

I don't think I've ever read a book this size this quickly. It had me at every page turn. Every chapter was a new adventure in Milo's life. I sat there reading, wanting to yell at Milo, wanting to tell him to make different choices. This book almost made me cry for crying out loud! 11/10
