A bunch of stuff I‘ve thought but have been too afraid to say. Luckily Meghan Dunn brilliantly says it for me.

This lesser known Highsmith is amazing! Full of slow building dramatic tension and the requisite sympathetic bad guy. #nightreads #saturdaynightbooks #oldschool

A book so good I had to get both Kindle and audio versions. Unfortunately for future generations, I think it could be an accurate predictor of events to come. #worldbuilding #epic #dystopia

Hmmm...this is quite literally a history book. Very little dialogue. Am I wrong in expecting something a bit more like a novel 🤔

@Liberty Thanks for recommending this excellent Poirot on #ReadorDead! It‘s perfect for a dark November night.

Time for a creepy read. #horror

TheReadingMermaid I wouldn't say "creepy"... more like "WTF did I just read???" 14mo
LisaW Just a short bit in, but so far I‘m finding it unsettling. 14mo
Leniverse There are definitely some deeply unsettling parts! 13mo

The Banker's Wife | Cristina Alger

This is one of the best thrillers I‘ve read in a long time. It‘s reminiscent of Stieg Larsson and early John Grisham. Very page turner-y! Despite the title it not a typical domestic thriller. Pick it up and you‘ll likely be hooked from the first page.

Wow, this book couldn‘t have been more in my wheelhouse: 19th century, slums of London, literary, suspense. It reminded me of other favorites: Michel Faber‘s Crimson Petal and the White, Emma Donogue‘s Slammerkin, or anything Sarah Waters. Thanks @SavidgeReads for turning me on to this gem.

Mehso-so

If you‘re in the mood for a domestic thriller, you could definitely do worse than this one. There are some clever twists and turns and the story is original. However, the book is a little longer than it needs to be. It‘s weighed down by unnecessary exposition. And I personally didn‘t connect with the characters as I would have liked. There was a little something missing in the writing...that “it” factor that makes you 💙 a book.

Startup: A Novel | Doree Shafrir

If you like books about the tech industry, or about millennials in NYC, this is definitely an entertaining read!

I think this is my new all time fav gothic horror novel! I'll definitely be reading more John Boyne!

BarbaraTheBibliophage I just read my first Boyne (tagged) and want to read more. Plus I love horror! Thanks. 2y

I highly recommend this collection for the Dorothy B Hughes novel In a Lonely Place. It's far ahead of its time in my opinion, and I've since read a couple of her other works. If you want to journey deep in to the psyche of a disturbed individual, read immediately.

LisaW Thanks for the likes! 2y
