House Across the Lake | Riley Sager

I got about halfway through this book and thought I knew exactly where it was going, and although I did guess correctly about some of it, boy was I surprised by the rest! Throughly enjoyed this one! 4 and a half stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨

actualdisneyprincess Omg right??? Just strolling along and WAIT WHAT. 😂😂💖💖 2mo

The Kept Woman | Karin Slaughter
post image
Mehso-so

I picked this up with a handful of Karin Slaughter‘s other books for a couple bucks at a library sale a while back. This is the first one of her books that I‘ve ever read. I don‘t know what I was expecting, but all the talk about rape and child sexual abuse really made this a difficult read for me personally.

5feet.of.fury Her writing is very graphic/gory in general. 2mo
kelseycoleburke I love Karin Slaughter but her books can be quite disturbing. There‘s more to them than the violence but I would say they all (I‘ve read them all) have violent themes running through them 2mo
GypsyKat @5feet.of.fury @kelseycoleburke I don‘t mind gore or violence, but SA, especially with children is difficult for me to read. 2mo

Under the Magnolias | T. I. Lowe

I‘m pretty sure that I got this free on Audible. I don‘t typically read books that are heavy on religion, but this one was really touching. Dealing with grief and family and mental illness, with a heavy emphasis on faith, this was a surprisingly sweet tearjerker. Three and a half stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨

I‘m really loving Lucy Foley‘s books! This is only the second one I‘ve read and she continues to impress me! Looking forward to reading more of her work.

The_Penniless_Author Glad you're enjoying it! I finally read the whole series last year and loved it as well. A warning though - you're going to hit sections in the middle that are a real chore to get through, but stick with it. It steadily improves again, and the last four books are excellent. Now I wish I could read it again for the first time 😄 8mo

Ooof! Although I enjoyed most of the other short stories in this Christmas treasury, this one reads like propaganda against teaching Critical Race Theory. Zero stars for this last story, so I‘m averaging 3 stars for the whole thing. So… it‘s a pick? But like, just not this last book. 🤷🏻‍♀️
