I love this cover and the debut thriller inside. This was a great novel that intertwined some folk tale aspects with a missing person mystery rooted in reality and it‘s effects on those left behind. I really enjoyed the fantastical elements.

I felt this domestic thriller was repetitive in its message and in its plot points. The wrongs of men ignored by women in their life for far too long results in….this? I just can‘t get behind this plot line.

Strong women, a touch of romance, mystery and history all combined for a compelling story that I didn‘t want to put down.
Unexpectedly (as this isn‘t usually my genre) enjoyed every moment of this story. #botm January

A good psychological thriller that kept me guessing. With the college setting and friends group it reminded me a lot of Secret History.

I was hesitant about this book and from the first page realized I shouldn‘t have been. What an incredible debut by this author. I‘m hopeful she writes another soon. I loved these women, their friendship, dreams and their struggles overcome; as a woman I felt this book deeply. #botm

swishandflick This is great to hear! I got this in my box and have been hesitant after seeing mixed reviews. Gonna have to bump it up the list 😊 3w
The_Heeler_Booklife This is my current read. I started it and was like oh, this is not for me. I‘m over half way in and I‘m in love with this book. Soooo good. 3w

First book of the New Year finished. Such a fun, easy to read memoir from someone who seems so kindhearted and good.

This book‘s plot was all over the place and ultimately the ending left me indifferent. A bummer since I liked the first book so much but this didn‘t leaving me wanting a third.

For this thriller I am leaning towards a “so-so” given the twists seemed implausible to me. Some twists I guessed, some surprised me, but overall it felt like way too many that it leaned towards the absurd. Elf by my mom , a favorite decoration ❤️ Dec #botm

I didn‘t get to read as much as I thought I would during my Thanksgiving week off; this happens every year but I‘ve felt in a reading rut lately. This was a fun dive into HW‘s antics and I enjoyed every minute. Hopefully I find a book that grabs me soon!

This wasn‘t a bad book but I struggled to remain engaged. The characters were hard to root for and had little redeeming qualities…and the end was depressing but very realistic. Not like Friday Night Lights for me although they tried comparing it to that in synopsis.

I enjoyed reading this book that was selected as our book club pick and look forward to discussing it with the group. I guessed at the reveals but the emotional growth and life of Evelyn more than made up for the anticipated plot points.

sleepy.ash87 I keep seeing this in my library app and wondering if I should give it a go! 3mo
Breanne1 @sleepy.ash87 I probably would have let it sit in my TBR pile longer had it not been for book club. I really enjoyed it though, definitely worth a go! 3mo

One from my #botm backlog. I really enjoyed the mystery….until the very end. I supposed that happens and I‘m trying to not let it color my review. The last two chapters just didn‘t do it for me.

I wasn‘t a fan of this book; there weren‘t any redeeming characters (except the children, poor kids) and I didn‘t really connect to the social media story line. I know this had been a past #botm choice but it just wasn‘t my kind of thriller I suppose.

Enjoyed this psychological thriller I got in Reese‘s Bookclub box. I‘ve been working my way through the goodies included in the summer box. This book kept me engaged and had a satisfying conclusion. A theme throughout was how the men in the MC‘s life we‘re predatory but her friendship with Kristin was just as predatory.

I‘d rate this as a 5 ⭐️ read, I‘ve had mixed feelings about some of the Reese‘s book club selections but this one was a big hit for me. The mystery and choice the MC ultimately made propelled me to keep reading and I end this story with respect for the strong female characters at the center of this story.

It pains me to say I didn‘t love this Grady Hendrix. That‘s not to say I didn‘t enjoy reading it but the main character was tough for me to like and I don‘t love slasher movies so perhaps that‘s why this one didn‘t land like his others have with me.

True Crime Story | Joseph Knox

The way the author inserted himself into this work of fiction was truly unique and added an interesting layer to the story. I really enjoyed this novel and liked the way it shed light on the sensationalization of crime by our culture. This is written as transcripts of interviews and switches points of view but it didn‘t distract me.

I don‘t know why I put off reading this one for so long, but I wound up really enjoying this. I went to a health retreat with my mom once and while it wasn‘t anything like their experience it brought back memories of how odd I found the whole experience. I look forward to the upcoming Hulu series of this book.

I never knew about the real life disappearance of Agatha Christie, and this novel did a great job of weaving in the fictional reason why she disappeared. A novel about a woman finding her way through betrayal on the strength of her own intelligence and resolve.

JennyM I disappeared down a google rabbit hole after reading this. So intriguing and I liked what she thought happened. 7mo

I fully expected to enjoy this book given my love of the housewives franchises what I didn‘t expect was for Brian Moylan to drop the gift that is Mark Harmon on “Battle of the Network Stars” in my life. Touching on two of my favorites all in one book, what more could you want! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

An incredibly detailed account of how a family and their company played a large role in our current opioid crises. This reads like nonfiction and I highly recommend it. It‘s a sobering look at the pharmaceutical industry, corporate greed and corruption of the institutions meant to protect us.
