This was a much darker read than I expected. It‘s quite graphic in many scenes and feels a bit more like horror than thriller in some moments. It kept me on the edge of my seat and my heart rate was elevated for much of it!
It was a bit too long and convoluted, but I still enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this book! Kept my attention through the whole thing and kept me wanting to read more. I‘ve already started watching the series on Netflix and it‘s so disappointing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

5feet.of.fury The adaptation is very different. Andie drove me a little crazy in the book but I liked both. 9mo
TamTracy @5feet.of.fury I like both but it just seems radically different so far. I should have waited a while so maybe I would forget some of the details 🙃 9mo

I had downloaded this on Libby a week or so ago, got about 45% in and just couldn‘t really focus (but I think it was a more “me thing” than the book. Decided to just opt for the Netflix show instead.

This book became predictable. Once the reader figures out the kind of story it is, the formula the book is following becomes more obvious. However, I absolutely LOVED the story. Mainly because I‘m a sucker for a Bonnie and Clyde re-vamp, especially with a Jonestown twist. As routine as it may have been I loved the journey of independence the main character went on. Nothing is more riveting and toxic than the chaos of a tragic love affair. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So, my next read was basically chosen at random. I am a loyal subscriber to Book of the Month and eventually the amount of BOTM books I have became quite overwhelming. This book is one of many that have been sitting on my dedicated BOTM shelf. That particular shelf is going to be one of the bigger challenges in getting my physical TBR list shrunken down, so I figured I better get started 😬

I was hooked from the start...I enjoyed the suspense and the way the mystery kept unfolding and just when I thought I had worked out what Laura was hiding and protecting Andy from...Bam! there was so much more than I expected.The characters were so complex and complicated, I loved trying to piece it all together along the way. Karin's writing always catches me unawares and leaves me thinking WTF...in the best of ways.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book had me captivated by the very first page. The 2018 timeline was action packed and I loved it. But when it went back to 1986 chapters is slowed down a lot. Also the decisions this women is making.. The character was 31 and I just couldn't imagine anyone that age making the stupid decisions she did. Also there was a lot of repetition that felt like it was juat to make the book longer. All of those things just knocked a star off for me.4/5

When Andrea is caught in a random violent attack at a shopping mall her mother, Laura, intervenes and acts in a way that is unrecognisable to her daughter. It's like Laura is a completely different person - and that's because she was. Thirty years ago.

Andrea Oliver is thrust into a terrifying situation after a trip to the mall ends in a violent act. She sees her mother, Laura, in a new light and must embark on a journey to save herself and her mom from her traumatizing past. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣4️⃣3️⃣ Can‘t wait to see the TV series on Netflix!

The vast majority of this book was good. Some plot bits are missing, some bits are predictable, but it is engaging and at least the first half is whoa worthy. Would watch whatever Netflix puts out.

Slaughter is one of the author queens of thrillers. I saw this was turned into a Netflix series, so of course I had to read it before watching. My only complaint is that there is some unnecessary repetition throughout - presumably to help readers make connections through the somewhat complicated storylines. I'm optimistic about the show 😊

The #audiobook narrator was amazing. This book is a twisty thriller, and part of the suspense is the amount of confusion around who is “good” and who is “bad.” (Obviously, there‘s good and bad in all of us.) I wanted to race to the end to find out how all of the loose ends were resolved. #Libby

Does anyone want to talk about the adaptation of this book to Netflix series?! I thought it was OK. Casting was not what I pictured at all. I pictured more of like Halle Berry for the mom-gorgeous, and muscular/ripped like she could beat some serious rear end. And for the daughter, the actress was kind of a dud. Anyone agree?

5feet.of.fury I was ok with Laura and Andi. Jane was not how I pictured… neither was Nick. I wasn‘t pleased with how they changed Nick & Paula‘s situations so much… I don‘t think adaptations need to be a carbon copy but that decision made the ending feel pretty soft. 2y
Jennaree3 @5feet.of.fury I agree! It wasn't bad, but the casting was off. And even the US marshal guy-they really took some liberties with that situation vs the book. 2y

Why did I wait so long to read Karin? Because I really enjoyed this. Despite being lengthy for a thriller, she kept me locked in to this story that asks how well do you know your mom?

Laura, a middle aged cancer survivor, shows surprising combat skills when faced with a mass shooter. She sends her adult daughter to a storage facility where it looks like she has a getaway identity stored. Both women are in jeopardy until the truth is revealed.

DGRachel I read my first book by her last year and asked myself the same thing. I have a bunch more on my bookshelves to get to! 2y
vivastory I read this recently & while it's not my favorite I enjoyed it. Curious what people think of the adaptation. 2y
Megabooks @vivastory same, although I doubt I‘ll watch it because I‘m pretty behind of tv. What others by her have you enjoyed? 2y

TrishB Cop! 2y
vivastory I second @TrishB but I do want to warn you that Pieces of Her is a bit of an outlier for her. The Grant County books are a bit more graphic. 2y
TrishB Yeah- they should come with a not for the squeamish sticker @vivastory - good point. 2y
Addison_Reads The Grant County books are my favorite. I started reading her last year and now I've read them all and I'm waiting for a new one. This one is definitely less gruesome than her series reads are. She's very dark and graphic, but her ability to get you caught up in the suspense makes her Queen of the thrillers in my book. 2y
DGRachel I read Pretty Girls last year as it was gifted to me in a swap. I loved it and devoured it in a day. 2y
Cinfhen This is Niki‘s FAVORITE author but I can‘t…SO DISTURBING 2y
Megabooks @TrishB @vivastory @Addison_Reads @Cinfhen I‘ve had chronic low-grade nausea for a few months, which has really turned me off to anything graphic, so perhaps I‘ll wait until the docs can figure out what‘s wrong first. But thanks for the input and warnings!! I‘ll definitely come back to her. 2y
Megabooks @DGRachel that was the first one I remember seeing a lot of book blogs, perhaps because it came out when I finally had time to read them 😆, but yes, definitely want to read it now! 2y
Laughterhp Karin Slaughter is too dark for me! I‘ve read a few of her books (not this one) and I just can‘t. I had bought a bunch of her books at library sales but had to get rid of them. 2y
Megabooks @Laughterhp I think this isn‘t typical for her. It isn‘t any darker than a Lisa Jewell. I‘m curious what I‘ll think as I read more. 2y
BarbaraBB I‘ve read and liked a few Slaughters too. But after that few I never felt the urge again to pick up another 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
Megabooks @BarbaraBB yeah, I think I‘ll try at least one more in the future because I think her writing style, so we‘ll see… 2y
Lesliereads “where it looks like she has a getaway identity stored” ‼️ 2y
BarbaraBB I‘d certainly do that, she writes good thrillers! 2y
lynneamch I watched and enjoyed the series. While some questions were answered, it was clearly left primed for a Season 2. I'm curious whether the book was more conclusive. 2y
Megabooks @Lesliereads right?!? It was a really fun book! 2y
Megabooks @lynneamch 🤔 interesting because the book ended pretty conclusively, but if you remove the epilogue, there could be a second season. 2y

Wow this is a roller coaster ride. It is both fast paced and slow at the same time. It is too long, yet too short. You are figuring it out but you still have no idea what is going on. And you are left wondering if there is more to the story on the last page. It is atmospheric and unsettling. Excited to see the show.

marleed I read this story many books so the plot was lost in the many deep dark cavernous tunnels of my brain. But I binged the series and as each scene played I fully recalled what would unfold so I think the limited series followed the book closely. I liked both, but yea definitely some poor MC choices. 2y
5feet.of.fury I just finished the show! Pretty spot on from the book. I can see why people (with the book and show) dislike Andi, but I think it makes sense in context of her trying to figure out what is happening. I liked it, didn‘t love it. 2y

This was really interesting. It kept me hooked all the way through. Family secrets that lead to a daughter trying to unravel the darkness in her mother‘s past are the meat of this story. I thought it was well written, but a lot of characters to keep track of and at certain points I thought it was slow. I liked the story and how it ended. I just think it could have been a bit shorter.

In standard Slaughter fashion, the opening is amazing. I am seriously hard-pressed to think of another thriller author who writes better openers than Karin Slaughter.There is more humor in POH than most of her books. I typically don't lol while reading, but there were at least a couple of instances while reading that I did. Although the morally ambiguous characters are present & there are dark elements, with few plot twists & long chapters,👇

vivastory POH reads like a bit of an outlier in comparison to the numerous other Slaughter books that I have read, As excited as I am for the upcoming adaptation, I can't help but wish that The Good Daughter was the standalone being adapted. 2y

1) The tagged book. I'm reading it in preparation for the upcoming Netflix series. I 💙 Toni Collette. It has a different vibe from the other Slaughter books that I've read, but I did just yell plot twist!
2) I've been dipping into Baldwin's Notes of a Native Son the past few weeks. Earlier this month I read, & loved, They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us by Abdurraqib.
3) I have been meaning to read The New Jim Crow for awhile.

The novel has two timelines, one in the 1980s and one in the late 2010s (i.e., pre-pandemic). The first section for each timeline is very exciting and tense though the remainder of the book doesn't always manage to keep the excitement and tension at the same level. I would like to have seen how the rather passive follower in the 1980s developed into the fierce ninja-like 21st century figure.

I enjoyed reading this book even though I liked present story more than past. I love books where someone is escaping - they can be so thrilling and this book sure was it!

There were two timelines and I wasn't really invested in the past timeline immediately. It took some time before it captivated me.

Overall this was really captivating read for me.

Andy feels stuck at home & in her job as a 911 dispatcher when a mall shooting reveals her mother Laura isn‘t the affable speech pathologist she seems. Don‘t want to spoil any of the twists, but I rooted for Andy, who pulls herself together to help her tough mother & herself, as they move on from the extremes of Laura‘s past. #Scarathlon2021 #TeamSlaughter #buddyread

But It wad only a so-so read for me, because it wasn't my topic and very bloody and violent. I know Slaughters Books are often so, but this book couldn't carry me away.

For all the reads and tv-shows I got 255 points for #teamslaughter this last week. I love the #readathon! And big thank to @Clwojick!
