I enjoyed this book. It kept me guessing and was very hard to put down. The writing was well done and I appreciated the content.

I didn‘t like this book as much as I was hoping I would. It wasn‘t terrible but the Dad‘s seemingly purposeful obliviousness made me dislike this book.

This was a really amazing book. Very hard to read in some places because of the terrible things done but I could not put this book down. I started it yesterday and wow. Brilliantly written and a beautiful book.

I really enjoyed this book. It‘s interesting see the difference between American and foreign thriller novels but I‘m really into the Japanese version. I think I‘ll try to find more books like this one.

I enjoyed this book although pretty generic suspense novel it was still really fun and the ending was not exactly what I thought it would be.

A Noise Downstairs | Linwood Barclay

I love Linwood Barclay. This book was so hard to put down that I read it in 8 hours and I‘m a slow reader. It was a fun suspenseful novel of a bit predictable but I had fun and that‘s the point.

I won‘t lie at first the page count of this book seemed a bit much but I kept hearing that I was a great read. It‘s true this book was very good. The writing is absolutely gorgeous and the story itself kept me Turning the page and not noticing how much I was actually getting through. All in all I loved it.

This was an interesting read. It‘s a story about having wanderlust in 1940s America. I‘m not usually into these kinds of stories but this book is on a 100 Essential Books scratch off bucket list I received as a gift so I read it and it was pretty good.

I thought this was a great book. So much happened and it felt like all these characters were real and I sympathized with all of them. The story itself was so good and I just couldn‘t put it down. I‘m a constant reader of Steven King and this was better than the last few I‘ve read of his

This was an interesting read. I went from stoic to laughing and back to stoic in places. It also had some emotional elements to it as well. All in all it was a funny lighthearted read.

The Terror: A Novel | Dan Simmons

I loved this book. It was very well written and although long it felt like it went by fast. I enjoyed the plot of this book and the fact that it was historical and complete fantasy at the same time. And my puppy also approves this message

vivastory If you haven't already watched it, I think the AMC series is a pretty decent adaptation. 3mo
Outofcontroltbr @vivastory I haven‘t watched it yet but I saw a trailer for it and that‘s why I picked up the book. 3mo
Aseleener I just finished this as well. Audio - 28.5 hrs! I felt that a lot could have been omitted. (Lots of repetition, for example.) But overall I liked it. My husband listened to it too and now we're obsessed with watching documentaries about the Franklin Expedition. 🙂 3mo

These two stories were good but also scary how easy it seems to come to that state. Definitely feel like we should be learning from these stories and not letting hate control people. All in all very good

Becoming | Michelle Obama

This is the best book I‘ve read so far this year. It left me feeling hope for the future of young women and minorities. There were so many instances in this memoir that made me stop and think about all the issues and all the details that I‘ve never really known about being a First Lady.

This book was really good. Very well written and I could not put it down. So many different twists and turns and the ending was not what I had expected at all. I give 11 out of 10.

This was an interesting read. An epic adventure of rabbits. At first it was difficult for me to get into until about halfway through then it started to pick up and I couldn‘t stop reading even at the beginning when it was slower but all in all a great book

This was amazing. Maybe spoilers but hopefully not. I loved the book Final Girls by Riley Sager so I had to pick this book up and I‘m so glad I did. Firstly I liked the winking nod to Rosemary‘s Baby But also the twist that occurred (not telling what it is so I don‘t spoil it for anyone) But also the main character was incredibly relatable especially for me since I have been in similar situations. All in all great read and kept me turning pages
