Behind A Closed Door | J.D. Barker

While I‘m not thrilled with what went on before the publication date of this book, I must say that it was an excellent read. It‘s not for everyone, however. That‘s the fastest that I‘ve read a book in a long time!

Great twists in this one! *Almost* as good as Local Woman Missing. I, personally, think she‘s a phenomenal author! 🤩

My anxiety has been a real gem this week 😒, so interestingly enough, my next #bookishmonopoly roll took me to my ‘anxiety‘ prompt. I‘ve now started flipping this magazine that I‘ve had forever. 🙃

DaveGreen7777 Hope you get some relief from your anxiety soon! Sending positive vibes your way! 🙏 2mo

Does It Hurt? | H D Carlton

Not the bluest of covers, but I wanted to open this one..

The triggers warnings are real with this one. Sometimes I needed more to happen, but I thought her writing was phenomenal. Definitely worth it if you‘re into dark enemies-lovers books. #bookishmonopoly

Captivatedbybooks My fave was when she told Enzo (i believe his name was) “what hurts is you arent safe anymore” mannnnnn i felt that pain and understood her all to well 2mo

This was a fun, quirky, fast-paced read! The narrative of the main character was phenomenal, and she throws in some darkness that makes it even better.

Made a rough draft of my #bookishmonopoly board at work the other night, and I couldn‘t wait to try it today since I‘m ready for my next read! I landed on ‘person on cover‘, so The Surgeon it is! 🤩

AkashaVampie Ur board looks awesome. Glad u could join us. Hope u enjoy ur pick. also it is up to u on how many rolls u do. U can do 1 or 5 or 10 or 100. (edited) 3mo
guinsgirlreads Thank you! So fun! I‘ll post the whole board when I make it prettier lol. How does that work with multiple rolls?! 3mo
AkashaVampie @guinsgirlreads ur welcome hun. I will post a pic in a sec to show u what I do. 3mo
UwannaPublishme Beautiful board! I just joined #BookishMonopoly too. I‘m a slow reader, so I‘m rolling once each month-unless I finish the book sooner. 😊🎲 2mo
guinsgirlreads @UwannaPublishme thank you! It‘s still so fun, though, no matter how many rolls, I think! 2mo

Don't Let Her Stay | Nicola Sanders

Loved, loved, LOVED this book. A super quick read, and a glorious twisty ending. Another good one that keeps you guessing about who the crazy one is; my type of book. If is says 'an unputdownable psychological thriller', then it's for me.

This was definitely NOT The woman in the window. 😕 I liked the old-time mystery kind of feel, but this one just did not keep me engaged as much as I had hoped.

Nightwatching: A Novel | Tracy Sierra

This book was crazy good! The review on the cover does not lie. It was non-stop suspense, and non-stop 'is she crazy or not'?! The ending may be a touch rushed, but the ending isn't the point to this book at all. Good stuff!

I‘m pumped to say that between last night and this morning - 2 workouts, cooking dinner, and meal prepping - that I‘ve gotten through the most percentage of an audiobook than I ever have before! Am I finally going to be able to do it?! Or is it just because it‘s a Freida McFadden book?!

Kiersten Modglin thrillers are always fast reads, but the ending in this one felt extra rushed. I also wanted the happily ever after, but it didn‘t fully come. Still a fun read and a page-turner!

This book started off strong for me, and I had high hopes then poof- she lost me. I‘ve come to the conclusion that I‘m just not a fan or her writing. However, still an interesting idea in there somewhere.

Of course I loved this book, as I have been following these murders through and through so far. I needed him to elaborate on a couple of things more, but maybe he couldn‘t yet. Plus, of course, there‘s no trial outcome yet, 😒 but still written in clear investigative detail.

TheQuietQuill I was in shock when I found out that the killer lives 20 minutes from me in a small town PA. Very disturbing altogether, and so sorry for the lives lost. 7mo

I was bored through most of it one 😒.. IMO most of it hard more of a domestic drama flair, then psych thriller. Interesting ending, but it wasn‘t really put together enough before it for me.

This was a fascinating memoir by a local author about her suicide attempt, drug addictions and recovery. Short and quick read, but her writing is phenomenally expressive.

There were some holes, but this may possibly be Kiersten Modglin‘s best book yet. It‘s definitely her longest, but there isn‘t a boring page in it! It‘s got Murder, twists (tons), turns (tons), and emotions and was amazingly written. Phenomenal read for me!

Big book club picks constantly make me skeptical about how I‘m going to feel about them.. but I must say this was quite the pick for GMA (adultery, kinks, and all 😂), and i enjoyed it!

At first it seems like just another petty, the neighbors all hate each other, book, but she made it quite fun to read! 4.5 ⭐️

This book was a phenomenal read. It‘s not only about Hadley Freeman‘s own personal battle and hospital stays, but it‘s a detailed and study-backed narrative of while young girls develop anorexia, and what is really is and entails. I learned a lot and I think this is a great read for all women!
