The Lying Game | Ruth Ware
post image
Pickpick

Loved this one! This was my favorite of Ruth Ware's books, which is saying something because I've loved her others as well. It hit all the right notes for me: the intense, exclusive teenage friendship; the spooky setting of the crumbling Mill and all that water; the secrets and lies. I pretty much wanted to start reading it again as soon as I had finished, that's how much I enjoyed it.

Read4life I'm really enjoying this, too. 3y

Loved this one so much! Great layered mystery that kept me guessing, and I loved Roxane, our broken but tenacious narrator.

Loved the complicated dynamics between the two sets of characters & how we were never sure who to trust. The POV switched btw several characters, but even though you‘re in these different characters‘ heads, you still get the sense that you might only be hearing the stories they tell themselves. Add in some strange falling birds, a creepy abandoned paper mill, & an alleged witch, and you‘ve got an engrossing mystery that I couldn‘t put down.

Cinfhen Nice review 3y

It has been a long, long time since a book made me cry, but The Salt House had me in tears. The characters are so richly drawn that I couldn‘t help hurting with the Kelly family as they struggled in the wake of the unexpected death of the youngest daughter. I wanted to reach through the pages and hug all of them. Lovely and heart-wrenching! (Also, I learned a lot about lobster fishing.)

Hollywood Homicide | Kellye Garrett

As evinced by this screengrab my Instagram story, I loved HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE so much that I took it to the gym with me ... and then stayed on the cardio equipment for longer than I had planned, unable to tear myself away for even a second. This book is a great mix of mystery and humor, and I definitely recommend it!

EricQiao Oh my! That's so exciting! I love the cover! May I ask how did you get signed by a major publisher? I'm also a writer but I know nothing about the publishing industry... 😅 3y
katelizabee @EricQiao Thanks! I went about it the traditional way: sending out a bunch of queries until I found an agent, and then working with that agent to find a publisher. Good luck with your writing! 3y
EricQiao @katelizabee Thank you! Good luck to you too! I was in a hurry to get my book published so I went with a small press instead. I was hoping to build a resume first...anyways this whole process is really frustrating! 😖 3y

Almost Missed You | Jessica Strawser
post image
Pickpick

It‘s a rare book that can make me sympathize with someone like Finn (esp. how he first appears, with his kidnapped child in tow & slinging blackmail threats), but Strawser has constructed such complex, three-dimensional characters that I couldn‘t help but hope things worked out for all of them, Finn included. I stayed up way later than I should have, turning pages as the secrets behind the characters‘ motivations (& misconceptions) were revealed.

Solid advice from a 17th century legal guide, as relayed in The Witches: "in the presence of such symptoms [as might be witchcraft], consult your physician before blaming your neighbor."
