My DECEMBER reads! I‘m late for this month to get started! Plus it‘s the last month to catch up on my 5 monthly targets that I started in MAY, so there‘s 4 extras on top of this. Big goal for the last of the year so hopefully I sneak in a lot of reading time 😂

I knew fairly quickly where this book was going, but that‘s not a thing that I care about. It still had a few good surprises at the end. I gobbled it up in a little over a day.

I‘m feeling conflicted about this. On one hand it was a page turner that kept me wanting to know what would happen. But you pretty much knew what was going to happen as there wasn‘t much of a mystery to solve. Kudos to Jewell for maintaining the suspense despite a see through storyline. Now for the cons. While it was clear who the villain was, the wrap up seemed rushed. Also, with alternating viewports, I wish we saw more of Ellie‘s perspective.

Jeannineth I loved this story but I thought it was a thriller going into it. Once I got over that disappointment, I enjoyed this story very much. I ended up giving it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Have you read Watching You by her? I enjoyed that story more. I ordered The Family Upstairs from book of the month. I am hopeful I‘ll eventually find a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ by her. 1mo
Purrfectpages @Jeannineth I haven‘t read Watching You or The Family Upstairs. I remember enjoying Lisa Jewell‘s books a lot year ago, but I want to say she switched genres at some point. Her thrillers are just okay to me. 1mo

This was a surprising and well paced mystery. Jewel created a great cast of characters in this story of the Mack family 10 years after the disappearance of 16 yo Ellie. The story is told from the perspective of 4 characters and shifts between current day and the time surrounding Ellie‘s disappearance. Initially the conclusion of the story seems obvious, but there is a very interesting twist at the end.

This story was harrowing, very harrowing. I guessed most of the parts early on and while there were a few twists (T and Paul) it was still predictable. I wouldn‘t recommend it, the story is just sick and twisted and will give me nightmares. It was a book club choice, mine actually but I didn‘t know how sick it was when I suggested it. Book 41 of 2019

Then She was Gone is a cleverly written, compelling, character driven psychological thriller that has a good dose of family drama thrown in. Alternating between past and present and narrated in multiple character POVs, Lisa Jewell has crafted deliciously dark, tangled-web of a tale full of interesting twists and unsettling turns that made for an addictively suspenseful read.

I saw this book coming from a mile away. At the beginning of this book I didn't like it at all. I thought all of the characters were quite annoying. But as it went on I didn't mind the characters as much. About halfway through the book I had pieced together the rest of the book. It didn't catch me by surprise at all. So I will only be able to rate this 3/5 stars

Butterflyamore I‘m reading this right now and I am so annoyed by the characters. I cannot stand Floyd and Poppy. 2mo

A powerful narrative. The story is carried through various perspectives telling their part of the horror that is the main plot line for the book. I would not describe it as a psychological thriller. But I would a captivating, interesting, well written story. #bookclubreads

Have you gotten any new books this week? My haul is significantly smaller than usual but that‘s okay, considering that I seem to read a lot slower than my book buying habits comprehend. I got No Second Chance from Goodwill, Then She Was Gone through a Facebook group, The Better Liar From the publisher, and the rest from The Dog Eared Book in Palmyra, NY.

10/10 would read this again!
This was such a great thriller! I finished it very quickly, devouring every page... It's definitely not for the faint of heart, and it may trigger some because it does talk about sexual assault and abduction. I really loved the character development, and how the author brought to life their unique pain and mental torment.

I would recommend this for anyone who loves a good violent thriller.

📚🍁Happy Reading!🍁📚

A great mystery story about Ellie Mack's disappearance and how things aren't always as they seem. Laurel is surviving the loss of her daughter, the deterioration of her marriage and difficult relationships with her remaining children when Floyd walks into her life with his remarkably familiar daughter, Poppy. Lots of twists and turns and wonderful British slang!

Another spectacular British phrase I've never come across before! This lady did not hand out vegetables or a pillow to sit on, which is what I thought a squash might be. I had to look this up because it's a drink made with a juice concentrate. This is a new favorite!!

Megabooks I learned about it from Gordon Ramsey‘s Kitchen Nightmares UK version. I love it, too! 4mo
TrishB We would never say it like that though 🤷‍♀️ it would be want a drink of squash ....not a. Or in this sentence ‘some squash‘ would be acceptable 😁 (edited) 4mo
IamIamIam @TrishB That makes more sense. It should have registered after she said elderflower because I had bought the elderflower concentrate from IKEA once. Lol, I do love that phrase, though! 4mo

IamIamIam @TrishB Lol!!! I know, in my area at least, they sell frozen concentrates but not syrups to add to stuff. Coffee syrups or maybe they're in liquor stores but I've only ever seen that kind of thing at IKEA! I assumed it was just a Swedish thing, not a European thing! For me, squash is just a vegetable of varying sizes and colors! 🤗💜 4mo

I love the differences between British English and American English. The imagery that popped into my head was straight out of a medieval castle and I had to wipe the image clean and then saw a guy pulling a flashlight out of a drawer. 😁

Been at Outer Banks, NC the last week and finished this book with a view of the little lake next to our beach house. Overall the book wasn‘t bad. It held my interest, but it wasn‘t overly suspenseful given I‘d had the plot figured out pretty quickly. Still was pretty enjoyable, but not a favorite of mine.

This was book 3/4 of my #BFC2 book goal

I just fundamentally don‘t get this book.
THINGS IT IS NOT:
1) A mystery - There is absolutely nothing mysterious here. The author signposts literally everything. Have a feeling you figured it out after the first suspect is introduced? That‘s b/c you did.
2) A thriller - The plot mostly consists of a middle aged woman going on dates.
3) A psychological character study - Why do the characters do what they do? B/c the author says so.

So...🤷🏻‍♀️

Day 10 of #30junebooks is SUMMER!
Here in #Tucson, summer means heat. And since everyone wants a nice air-conditioned place to hang out while the kids are outta school, Bookmans is BUSY all day, every day. 📚
I checked my employee recs shelf this morning, and it was totally empty! So I stocked it up with some fun, light summer reads, plus a couple of faves. 😍 I wonder how many days it‘ll be before it‘s empty again. 🤔 #behindthescenesatbookmans

Do you ever get so into a book that you want to Google all the characters to find out more about them and then you realize they‘re not real? Helen Duff‘s narration is so good that I find myself wanting to do just that. Really enjoying this book.
