The Whisper Man | Alex North
post image

Argh, this is the first time I‘ve ever had to bail on an audiobook because of the narrator!
I‘ve heard so many great things about this book so decided to use an audible credit for it. Christopher Eccleston narrates so I assumed, as he‘s an accomplished actor, he‘d be pretty good. Oh how I was wrong. Dull, monotonous, did nothing to draw me into the story.
So this goes back on the TBR to be read in another format. 🙁

You know a series has got you when the cold blooded serial killers have the best lines. 😏

Definitely needs a warning for violence and language if that offends you....although as I get older I care a lot less about curse words.🤷‍♀️

Pickpick

What happens when a group of gangsters gets sent upriver, and their wives decide to take over the business to earn a living in their absence, only to realize they like being in control and aren‘t ever going back.

Just as gritty as the movie that would come later, more so actually. I enjoyed this violent little gangster tale.

*Side Note: Loved the casting in the movie, preferred this ending for a certain character.

Daisey This sounds fantastic! 3h
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey Did you see the movie with the same name? It stars Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss as the wives. 3h
Daisey No, but I may need to look up both. 3h

The Last House Guest | Megan Miranda

Mehso-so

I love Megan Miranda and was excited to read this, but I found it off putting and difficult to follow at times. I found myself reading passages over more than once, trying to grasp if there were subtle nuances I was missing or if it was just poorly written in spots. I figured out both reveals long before they actually happened, and I just wasn‘t wowed by this story. Furthermore, I didn‘t much care for the heroine. #liketheauthorbutnotthisbook

Megabooks I did the audiobook and it was my second favorite to All the Missing Girls. I really like Megan in general too! 3h

Postmortem | Patricia Cornwell

Discussion post from @ljuliel 😁♥️
“Can you name an author that‘s an immediate purchase when they release a new book, plus you‘ve read every other book they‘ve written already?”
I devoured every single book in the Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell (years ago). These books are what got me so hooked on the mystery/thriller genre, and the emphasis on forensic science is KILLER (no pun intended 😂).

I know he's a sadistic murderer, but I just can't help but really love the character of Hannibal Lecter. I'm not quite sure what that says about me... 😂
