rsteve388 It was okay... I listened to an abridged version which I didn't realize until after I read it I am sure the full version was better. I did enjoy how the story was narrated from different perspectives including the actual killers. 2w

Clwojick @rsteve388 I jumped between the physical book and the audiobook, which I enjoyed well enough. I probably would‘ve enjoyed it more had I stuck to the physical book only, since I found the narrators female voice was a bit annoying lol. 2w
rsteve388 Yeah ugh that's the worst when you can't stand their voice. Ruins the story. :( 2w
Clwojick As for the story itself... In true #KarinSlaughter fashion, I knew it would be dark and gritty, as most of her other books are. I didn‘t find it as gritty as some of her other books, but it still had its moments that make my flinch. I love Will Trent, and found that myself sympathizing with him as the story progressed. 2w
Clwojick I also liked that she kind of gave away the killer early on in the book. The mystery isn‘t who‘s doing the crimes, but how and if they will get caught. 🙌🏻 2w
Stacypatrice I really enjoyed this book and now a new Karin Slaughter fan! 2w
Clwojick @Stacypatrice yes! I have a few more of her books on my shelf that are bling moved up on the list! 2w
Lizpixie I enjoyed it, it wasn‘t her best by a long shot, but it introduces Will & his diabolical wife Angie, which is its highlight. I didn‘t like Will at first, mainly because I loved Jeffrey so much, but he‘s grown on me💁🏻‍♀️ 2w
EadieB I've read all of Karin Slaughter's books. I think it's best if you start with the Grant County series before the Will Trent series as that's the beginning of the timeline for Sara and Jeffrey. Her last book, The Last Widow, I did not enjoy as much as it got too political but hopefully she won't keep the series going in that direction. 2w
Charityann I enjoyed this book. I hadn‘t heard of Karin Slaughter before, but now I‘ll read more of her stuff. 🎃 2w
Liatrek I‘m so glad this was our team buddy read because it introduced me to Karin Slaughter and this amazing series. I enjoyed the characters and the story. I really like her style of writing and also read the The Good Daughter. I can‘t wait to dive into the rest of the series😊🎃 2w
Clwojick @Lizpixie surprisingly enough, this was my first of her Will Trent books. ☺️ I can‘t wait to read on. 2w
Clwojick @EadieB Thanks for the suggestion! I‘ll keep that in mind. ☺️ 2w
Clwojick @Charityann I‘ll admit to reading more of her stand alone books, but I‘ll definitely be continuing with this series too. Some of the members in the group were talking about starting a #SlaughterBookClub ♥️♥️♥️ 2w
Clwojick @Liatrek woohoo! I‘m glad I chose a good one! I‘ve been familiar with the author for a while now, but I‘m happy to see that this event has introduced her to other. 🧡 2w
Bookwormjillk This book was more violent than what I would normally stick with, but the twists and turns kept me going. As someone mentioned above it was different knowing who the killer was but not how they‘ll be caught. I‘ll read more of this series but after reading this and Misery in one month I need a break from unplanned amputations for a while 🤪 2w
Sarahreadstoomuch I was really glad to read this, even if I didn‘t like how poorly all the ladies were characterized or the audiobook narrator. I‘ve never read books like this, and I‘m encouraged to try more. I did like the twists and some of the “mic drop” moments. 2w
FantasyChick Slaughter's been on my radar for a while now but I haven't had a chance to pick up one of the books yet. I'm glad I started with this one! I enjoyed the twists and I actually really like books that give away the killer from the beginning. The guessing to how they will get caught is exciting! I also really liked all the connections between the characters. Looking forward to continuing the series 2w
hes7 I‘ve only read a couple of Slaughter‘s books now, but I did not enjoy this one as much as the other. Will was probably the only character I liked, which made it hard to keep caring through the end of the book. It did have some good twists and surprising connections, though, that I appreciated. 2w
4thhouseontheleft I thought it was okay. I would have probably liked it more if I hadn‘t listened to the audiobook. The narrator was terrible, especially when doing the female characters. 2w
Clwojick @4thhouseontheleft You must have listened to the same audiobook as me! 😂 I totally agree with that. 2w
samanthagutt I loved the book! I completely agree with @Clwojick that it was cool to know the killer so early on in the book, because it actually was a huge shock to find out that the detective Michael was John‘s cousin Woody! I think if she waited until the end I would have figured it out myself and it wouldn‘t have had that same “shock” factor. I really found Angie irritating, to me she was the worst part about the book. Overall I loved it! 2w
4thhouseontheleft @clwojick Probably! His narration was so distracting! I definitely plan to read more in the series, but not on audio! 2w

#Triptych #KarinSlaughter

Atlanta - Michael Ormewood is searching for the killer of Mary Alice Finney, 15 years old. Her father is Paul Finney, assistant district attorney for DeKalb County. This is a gritty, psychological thriller and Karin Slaughter at her best. Lots of twists and turns make for a story that is hard to put down. Brilliant plotting with lots of suspense. Recommended to those who love mystery thrillers.

Clwojick WAY to go!!!! I'm glad you enjoyed it. We'll be doing a group discussion at the end of the month, and I'll tag you in the post. :) 4w

Cleaning the Gold | Karin Slaughter

Karin Slaughter‘s Will Trent meets Lee Child‘s Jack Reacher. Can Fort Knox handle these two?

A short novella packed with action and detail. Hoping to see more of this collaboration.

#WillTrent #JackReacher #KarinSlaughter #LeeChild #novella #Hoopla

TrishB Is it worth it? Q9.89 for about 80 pages? 6mo
SW-T @TrishB I read it on Hoopla so it was a free read for me. For Q9.89 I‘d hesitate to be honest. The Hoopla copy was 94 pages, but that included author notes about the collaboration plus a preview. It was good but worth Q9.89? Hard to say. 6mo
TrishB Thanks 👍🏻 I want to read as it‘s about Will, but I‘m a bit miffed at the price! May wait for an offer. 6mo

The Good Daughter: A Novel | Karin Slaughter
post image

I've read Pretty Girls & The Good Daughter so far and loved them both! What should I read next? #recommendations #karinslaughter #pleaseandthanks

Meee96 I love her books! I have read some of the Grant County series.-Blindsighted, Kisscut, A Faint Cold Fear...Those are all very good I think! I am going on to finish the rest of that series. Then would like to read some of her stand-alones. 7mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Meee96 Are the ones you mentioned a part of a series? I've heard amazing things about Blindsighted! 7mo
Meee96 Yes. They‘re part of the Grant County Series. Yeah, Blindsighted is awesome I think! 7mo

TrishB The Grant County series and then onto the Will Trent series (they sort of carry on) Cop Town as a stand alone is my least favourite. 7mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Meee96 thank you! 🤗 Downloading as we speak! 7mo
Meee96 @ReadingOverSleeping Awesome! Hope you enjoy!😊 7mo
ReadingOverSleeping @TrishB adding Will Trent series to the list as well! Didn't realize she had several series! 😮 7mo
ShyBookOwl The Good Daughter is my fave so far, but Blindsighted was really good too. Pieces of Her was ok. 7mo
Meee96 I‘m planning on going to get all the rest of those ones of that series tomorrow actually lol 7mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Meee96 let me know how you like them! Few pages into Blindsighted and of course she has me hooked 😂 ... @ShyBookOwl have you read Pretty Girls?! First book I read by her and it's SO good! 7mo
ShyBookOwl @ReadingOverSleeping I have not, but it's on my TBR 😊 7mo
ReadingOverSleeping @ShyBookOwl Enjoy it! I lost sleep at the effed upness of it but totally worth it 7mo
ShyBookOwl @ReadingOverSleeping Haha yeah, I need to take long breaks between these types of stories 7mo
ReadingOverSleeping @ShyBookOwl I see what you mean ... Blindsighted is intense ... I may need a break after this one 7mo
Eggs Welcome to Litsy 🌸 7mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Eggs thank you! 🤗 7mo
ShyBookOwl @ReadingOverSleeping yeeeaaah. I guess that's how you know it's well done though. It really gets to you. 7mo

Pretty Girls: A Novel | Karin Slaughter

Rainy day psychological thriller! It‘s basically centred on the disappearance of a teenage girl and the various people it affects. Keeping it vague because I didn‘t wanna know much going into it. I‘m loving it so far. Very good, flowy writing with brilliantly brewing tension & suspense.
