I've been stuck on another novel for a while and decided to start a new one instead this morning. I'm so glad I did! This is so good! ❤

Cathythoughts I enjoyed this one & .. Yes ! Sometimes switching novels is the best thing to do 😁👍🏻 2w

Althought I do have a preference for the first book, the sequel kept me interested until the end. #spain #sagavaleria #frombooktoscreen

While scuba diving in Bora Bora on their honeymoon, Mark and Erin find something in the water that might change their lives forever. #BoraBora
It was good but a little farfetched for my taste. I like when the story is a little more plausible.

When 8-year-old Florence is found on a murder scene, she refuses to talk to anyone. Reading her diary is the only way to discover the terrible things that happened in that house.

I've read other books by Christina Lauren and I wasn't expecting this one to be so racy. I haven't read 50 Shades of Grey but I would guess it's pretty similar. A sex-driven love/hate relationship between a boss and his intern....

THAT WAS SO GOOD! I've never read Lolita but now I want to see the similarities between the novel and Sally Horner's tragic story for myself. #truecrime #lolita #kidnapping

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘ve never been able to bring myself to read Lolita (the novel), but I‘m so glad to know that someone is looking at the other side of that story. 4mo
EKonrad There‘s also a really good fictionalized version of this story called Rust and Stardust (which I loved!). 😊 4mo

💙💙💙💙💙I'd rate this even higher if I could! Such an amazingly written #psychologicalthriller. The 5-year-old perspective on the situation is so cleverly done. Watched the movie yesterday evening after finishing the book. It was good but definitely not as deep and troubling as the book.#kidnapped #emmadonoghue #kidsperspective

Half way through the book I realized I was skipping parts trying to get to the action... which I never found. It's not that it's a bad bood, I believe maybe I wasn't in the mood for that type of novel so my review might not be totally fair. However, I was excited to find a novel set in Cuba.

Too this picture before starting to read the book and I just now realize how the quote #yourfuturedependsonwhatyoudotoday perfectly fits this book. This novel tells the story of 4 young girls who become friendly with a teenage murderer for different reasons. If you're into the rawness of Japanese fiction, this book is for you.

Regret, aka Jin, is a young Korean girl who moves to Honolulu as a picture bride in the 1910s. I'm not traditionally a fan of historical fiction but the way Alan Brennert writes makes it so interesting. 💜

It was my first novel by #luisalbertourrea and I was not disappointed. This is the story of 19-year-old Nayeli and her illegal adventure into the United States to find men to bring back home in an attempt to protect her hometown from criminals.
