I've got a busy day ahead so I need an #audiobook I can really dive into. I usually don't switch between print and audio but the chapters seem to be on par with the book so I can pick up where I left off at home!
2.5 ⭐️- It may come as a shock that, after reading three of Karin Slaughter‘s books recently, I‘ve decided Pretty Girls will be my last book by this popular author.
It‘s a ‘it‘s me, not you‘ kind of parting. I just cannot stomach the graphic violence that seems to permeate her stories. She can write a mean thriller but her stories just aren‘t a good fit for me.
Have you had to break up with any authors?
What can I say? I loved this book more than I thought I would. Disclaimer: Lots of torture, rape, murder, not for the faint of heart.
I usually am not the biggest fan when it comes out to books that alternate each chapter with a different character. However, I was equally interested in both characters. Great book, 1 down from my TBR list #24b4Monday #tbr #mrbook1inamillion
Lord almighty! This book has me second guessing everything, Ms.Slaughter you cunning little lady, you are amazing. Lol I wanted to finish this tonight but I need sleep for a 12 hour shift tomorrow😭😭😖😖#Karinslaughter. All you slaughter fans, what‘s another good book from her?
My mind is a little mind blown over what I just read. This is definitely not a read for anybody that might have trigger warnings with rape, kidnapping, murder, fetishes, and many more. My list could go on and on. The writing of this book kept me intrigued and I just wanted to know how this was going to end.
I love love love Karin Slaughter but this one was almost too much for me. There are some great twists and turns in the story and the pacing is fantastic. But WOW. Very gritty and graphic.

A great fast paced mystery that paints a rich picture of the lives of two drastically different sisters following the disappearance of a third sister. In true Slaughter style this story is filled with flawed characters, great twists, and a gripping ending. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻1/2. #24B4Monday. # teamslaughter
definite page turner. this book got me through a shitty weekend and made me stay up so late i called in to work today 🤫 no regrets! highly recommend! #bingeread
Warning-this book is EXTREMELY graphic when it comes to rape, torture, and murder. But if your stomach can handle it then I highly recommend the book. The author did a fantastic job with the way the story unfolds, layer after layer. It took me 2-3 hours before I became hooked to the story, but once I was it was hard to stop.
Pretty Girls is a true edge of your seat thriller!!
Claire and Lydia‘s sister, Julia, went missing twenty years ago. Now, another girl has vanished, and one can‘t help but wonder if these missing pretty girls are connected in some way.
After I reached the halfway point, I just could not put this one down! A solid plot with strong characters. Page turner!!
Fair warning that several scenes are graphic and unsettling.
My current read...
I‘m more than halfway through, and oh my, are some of these scenes and descriptions intense! Actually taking a break because it is an edge-of-your-seat book for sure!
Fairly sure I have predicted how this one will end but definitely looking forward to the final chapters. Really enjoying this one!
I've heard Karin's books are amazing, so I borrowed this from a friend. It was ok. There were some really graphic scenes that I wasn't a fan of. One of the main characters was described as "really clever," but that was clearly not the case. At all. I'm curious to read more of her books though. I give it like a 3/5 #thrillers
If you have a weak stomach I do not recommend. This book is so graphic! It is also amazing, exciting, emotional and impossible to put down!
Wow! This book was really tremendous! It is graphic and there are parts that may be too much for some readers, but if you enjoy Slaughter's writing, this may be her best. As a psychological thriller, it kept me invested, but was unique about this story was that she wove beautiful descriptions of family and love and loss throughout. Definitely recommend!
Looking for a good horror? This book had me on the edge of my seat all day! It has several sad parts in it, but all in all it was a fantastic read.
The character's are well developed and mostly likable. The narrator changes from one person to the next and back, which I think gives the story depth. I truly enjoyed this journey, albeit a little creeped out.
I would recommend this book for anyone wanting a good thriller.
📚📚 Happy Reading! 📚📚
My first Karin Slaughter novel. Sometimes you are just in the mood for something stabby!
I came home from vacation to some wonderful #litsylove #birthday mail, including a copy of the tagged book from @Kaila-ann and a mini letter set from @nelehelen 😍 Thank you for the early #birthdaylove, everyone! I will do my best to get replies out the door in the next two weeks. I know I still owe a bunch of replies. 😔
Great book. Know going into it that it's shockingly graphic!
If you can get past the graphic content in this book it‘s a great story! Kept me wanting to read more!
Best book I have ever read. Bar none. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is not my favourite genre, too hit-and-miss for me. But this book was great, it had me hooked from go.
Just finished this audiobook and holy cow! It was dark and twisty and heartbreaking and triumphant. Probably not a book for the faint of heart but if you‘re ok with dark and twisty then this is probably up your alley. Finished while registering some of the books I picked up while out and about today. #bookcrossing #hoopla #audiobook

This book was intense in many ways and has pretty much all the trigger warnings. It is quite graphic at times. Basically it is about missing girls and a pair of sisters that lost their other sister many years ago and how it all connects to the present. Well woven story.
Audiopainting today. This is my second trip to Lowe‘s and my day is far from over. Selling a home is for the birds!
