I hate that it took me so long to read this book because it was so good! There was a twist that I didn‘t see coming and I loved it! I just got her second book from BOTM so I‘m excited to read it soon!

3 years ago, Jill‘s best friend Shaila was said to have been murdered by her boyfriend. Now, she‘s receiving messages saying her friend‘s boyfriend‘s innocent. Who really killed Shaila and why?

I didn‘t really enjoy this one. I didn‘t like most of the characters. The main character annoyed me because she was too indecisive. I already knew who did it from the beginning. Also, the reveal felt forced rather than natural.

Tagged book is my pick for November‘s best book.
I haven‘t updated this #2022ReadingBracketChallenge since July! The second level choices have been so difficult that I can‘t imagine what it‘s going to be like to pick a winner. I‘m also surprised at how many non-fiction books have made it to the second round.

I found this book after my mom mentioned she‘d like to read a book based in the area of Scotland that our ancestors lived in Argyll. While I didn‘t really hit that mark with this pick, I found a story that absolutely absorbed me. I‘m a sucker for time travel books, and while I would say this is more of a dual timeline, I loved how the author created the link between the two. I will definitely be adding the next in the series to my January TBR!

JamieArc I love all of Kearsley‘s books. While I wouldn‘t normally pick up books with time travel or supernatural elements, her books do such a good job at creating a real sense of place that I always want to return to. 4h
keys_on_fire @JamieArc - Yes! Such a great point. I could definitely see this translating into a movie or mini-series because of that fact. I'll have to do some digging to find out if any of her books have been translated to film... 4h

#tbt The news keeps threatening snow here, but today is beautifully sunny.

Makes me think of winter reads though, and Ruth Ware is always a win in my opinion. Even if I figure it all out before the reveal I enjoy the ride.

Hoping to read a few more winter themed books in the next couple of months!

The book is even better than the movie. After seeing the movie countless times I didn't expect the book to surprise me but it did.The book had several different details, and plot holes in the movie were closed. Remember the Dino poop scene? Answered. I finished at 1am and couldn't sleep from that hyped up horror feeling. This book aged well. I Definitely recommend it! #bookspin November @TheAromaofBooks

I really love the #TrappedonanIsland challenge hosted by @aperfectmjk !!

@PuddleJumper you've ended up on this wintry island. Luckily it happens to have a cozy cabin, plenty of hot chocolate, and this pile of books!! I haven't read any of them, so I mostly went with #CoverLove 😂 Happy reading!!!

PuddleJumper It's a good way to pick them! Thanks! 10h

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

With a great setting and exquisite vibes, this slow burner (but maybe a little too slow?) assesses ambition, privilege, and fate vs. free will. It definitely has intriguing elements, but it‘s not a “new” story - I wasn‘t really surprised by the direction it took. I also wish some aspects had been developed more. #BOTM
