It Girl | Ruth Ware
19 posts | 37 read | 27 to read
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the "claustrophobic spine-tingler" (People) One by One returns with an unputdownable mystery following a woman on the search for answers a decade after her friend's murder. April Coutts-Cliveden was the first person Hannah Jones met at Oxford. Vivacious, bright, occasionally vicious, and the ultimate It girl, she quickly pulled Hannah into her dazzling orbit. Together, they developed a group of devoted and inseparable friends--Will, Hugh, Ryan, and Emily--during their first term. By the end of the second, April was dead. Now, a decade later, Hannah and Will are expecting their first child, and the man convicted of killing April, former Oxford porter John Neville, has died in prison. Relieved to have finally put the past behind her, Hannah's world is rocked when a young journalist comes knocking and presents new evidence that Neville may have been innocent. As Hannah reconnects with old friends and delves deeper into the mystery of April's death, she realizes that the friends she thought she knew all have something to hide...including a murder. "The Agatha Christie of our generation" (David Baldacci, #1 New York Times bestselling author) proves once again that she is "as ingenious and indefatigable as the Queen of Crime" (The Washington Post) with this propulsive murder mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

I just love her voice, writing, and character development. I figured out the bad guy early, but still found the mystery and the twists compelling and worthwhile though it did run a bit long. Ware never disappoints. #AuthoraMonth #AAM @Soubhiville #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

Ruth Ware delivers another thrilling page-turner that will keep you guessing, thinking everyone is sus until the very last page! The hubby‘s life motto is TRUST NO ONE and it definitely applies to this read because GEEZ! I thought they ALL did it at some point of the book.

I don‘t agree with Baldacci that she‘s the “Agatha Christie of our generation” but this was a competent thriller and I enjoyed it more than her last two. Golden girl, April Clarke-Clivedon was murdered while a student at Oxford. It was her roommate, Hannah Jones‘s testimony that convicts a smarmy college porter of the crime. Protesting his innocence to the last, he dies in prison and now Hannah is questioning her memories of the crime.

*sigh* a bit disappointed, slow to start where I sped up the audio. I didn't like Hannah's self inflicted guilt over a man who clearly did things that were just wrong. And all the talk on how she was BFF with April but only had one "show me" time where April was nice to her, she was actually not a likable character. In my opinion, this book could have easily have been trimmed by 100 pages. ? Still a Ruth Ware fan but this one was so so for me.

3rd book read during #SuperSeptember Readathon @Andrew65
I liked this one but not loved it. I liked the mystery, how it was developed and some parts of the end. I was not connected in that relationship between Hannah and Will. Sometimes I couldn‘t stand Hannah and her irresponsible decisions during her pregnancy. Maybe who did it was for me an old cliché used in thrillers. But I like this author writing style. I enjoyed the audiobook. 3.7/3.8⭐️

Gissy #LiterallyDeadBookClub I think they haven discussed the book yet in YouTube.

I enjoyed this one! It took me a bit to get into it, but once I did I could scarcely put it down. I will continue to order Ruth Ware‘s books cold.

I‘ve been painfully distracted lately. This is the longest book “rut” I‘ve been in, in years. Not for want of excellent / enjoyable books!!

Listening to The It Girl… unfortunately bc of my inability to focus on reading lately, I‘m about to lose it to the list of holds, and I‘m only about 20% done. Enjoying it so far though!

This brilliant memoir, however, has really captured my attention, and I‘m almost done… review to come. #RealLifeBookGroup

AmyG Hope your slump ends soon. 2y
Reggie I loved this book and just thought how creative she was in how each chapter was a different theme. 2y
Avanders @AmyG thanks lady! It‘s not a book issue 🫠🫠😘 @Reggie I super agree!! 🤩 2y

Mehso-so

Set at Oxford this book follows Hannah, a shy bookish girl and her “IT GIRL” roommate, April. The format is dual timelines; their first semester at Oxford (2012) ending in Murder and 2022 - 10 years past the murder.
My issue with this book was it‘s length. It dragged on FOREVER. Last 100 pages were engaging but ultimately couldn‘t save this book for me. A low pick.

Ruthiella I wonder if Ware is now such a big name author that her publisher is afraid to ask for edits a la King or Rowling? 🤔 2y
Cinfhen Idk @Ruthiella but the editor definitely needed to use that red marker on a good 100 pages!!! 2y

VERY slow going!!! The buildup is dragging- if not for a review, I would probably set this aside for now 🤷🏼‍♀️ #SoManyBooksSoLittleTime

TrishB I gave up on this author a couple of books ago, just wasn‘t doing it for me. 2y
KarenUK Oh no! She‘s hit or miss for me. I was hoping this was a good one. I have an arc to review too 😕 2y
Cinfhen It‘s slowly improving @TrishB @KarenUK but not enough to stay fully engaged 😖it‘s also on the longer side - 2y

MicheleinPhilly @TrishB Same. I gave her 2 chances and then crossed her off my list. 2y
Cinfhen That was probably a wise move @MicheleinPhilly 👍🏻😉 2y
MyNamesParadise This is good to know! It will come in for me at the library soon. 2y
Cinfhen Are you generally a fan of Ruth Ware @MyNamesParadise ?? Because this book feels very much like all her others, I will say the audio narration by Imogen Church is very good!!! 2y
MyNamesParadise @Cinfhen I loved In a Dark Dark Wood but that‘s been years ago now. I have a couple of her others but haven‘t read them. I‘ll just have to see if I connect with it when it comes in. Thanks for the heads up about the audio! 2y
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly think I did 3! But same. 2y
