Starting this one today. Another NetGalley title from way back.
Sometimes deserving each other means you‘re simply not receiving much .
So I have a whole working theory about what's going to happen at the end of the book. I'm going to put it in the comments with a spoiler alert but don't tell me if I'm right yet. I'm on chapter 58 and it's been slow going and not that dramatic or thrilling as some in the genre and there's still a lot of unanswered questions. Like the odd bottle of eye drops in the pantry... But if my theory is right it will all make sense.
This is an amusing, twisted little story. Highly unlikely but still fun. Lately whenever a contemporary (2018 or after) book has an "x years later" epilogue, I imagine what that epilogue would look like if the author had known covid was on the horizon. The reality of the pandemic kind of constrains my imaginings of any story past the back cover. Among other things.
🌱 The first spring thunder storm ⚡ I love them ❤️
🌱 I'm still busy with the 2 I might consider best for the month > it's between Warbreaker and My lovely wife
🌱 Now I can't think of one single character - I know there should be one...🤔
🌱 I'm grateful for date nights 😍
Thanks for the tag @damselsgotballs

This reads like a bookclub book. Every other chapter has a domestic social issue discussion point, i.e. adultery, troubled relationships with parents, mental health issues, middle age breakdowns. The actual aerial killer plot is just an excuse 4o get to these issues.
What a wild ride. Some twists and turns that I saw coming, others totally unexpected. Great first book of 2021. 5⭐️
😱 So friggin‘ good!!!! Kind of saw one thing coming but it just added tension to the story! Loved it. 💕🌟🌟🌟🌟
I was quite satisfied by this thriller and I completely get the hype surrounding it. It‘s clever and immersive with some fun little twists along the way. If you‘ve put this one off, like I had, you might want to reconsider that choice!

What are you currently reading? I‘ve started these to fit the prompts on the Spooktober bingo challenge I‘m participating in.

Prompt: Orange cover ~ Unspeakable Things
Our nameless hero and his wife are keeping secrets. He‘s also being blackmailed by his own son, is worried about his daughter‘s increasingly erratic behavior, and suddenly wondering what extra secrets his wife is keeping. Interesting enough to keep me reading, but not engaging enough to stay on my mind after I put the book down.
Thank you @Eggs for the challenge and @EadieB for the tag! Sorry I didn‘t see it until now, but better late than never!
1) The tagged book
2) This may sound weird, but I would love to read Diary of a Wimpy Kid with Greg attending Hogwarts with Harry Potter. I think it would a funny spoof focusing on the mundane activities at Hogwarts
3) Multiple POVs keep me guessing, like One of Us is Lying

This was boring and at times unbelievable to a point that I was just shaking my head. I don't love thrillers, and I found this fairly predictable. The end was the best part, and it bumped it up to a 3 stars for me. I'd recommend it if you love thrillers, because the concept is kind of interesting, but there's no reason to like, run out and buy a copy.
In this thriller, a couple tracks and kills women to keep their marriage alive. Then things go horribly awry.
It reminded me of Gone Girl in respect to the twists and “grand scheme.” I chose so-so because I couldn‘t fully connect to the narrator. I like stories where people make average mistakes and get caught in a web -the “it could happen to me” feel. But when the narrator gets in deep water after murdering people for fun, deep down I‘m 🤷🏼♀️
My name is pretty unusual, I was not expecting to see it in this context, and certainly not with my morning cup of coffee...
"Nothing ever happened in Woodview. Certainly nothing like the murder of a nice woman named Callie..."
My weekend ended up being a bit busier than expected (not to mention a few unplanned naps🥱) but I‘ve been reading whenever I can. Not the 30hours or 10 books I was hoping for, but so far I‘ve read for 21hr28mins, finished 8 books and started 2 others. I work tomorrow, but I might carry on with the Readathon since my husband doesn‘t come home until Tuesday morning.
Really enjoying the tagged audiobook. LOVE a good psychological thriller.
After being able to predict the ending, and the two main characters being equally unlikable, I‘d only recommend this book as a “fun” read. A man and his wife plot how to get away with murder during their “date nights.”
But if women keep dying, and they certainly don‘t want to get caught, who‘s to blame? Why not a killer from years before?
Good plan until we soon learn the so-called murderer has been dead since before these killings started...
