The Children's Secret | Nina Monroe

IMHO this was more of a multiple family drama read than it was a musketeer or suspense; as it has been pegged. The suspense factor IS there, just not enough for me to be labeled those..

Still a good read! Crazy character development at times and definitely a good discussion book for a book club or just in general!

This book was a different theme for a thriller, and clever! It might be easy to figure out eventually, but it still grips you from start to finish.

Yes, there are a ton of Dahmer books, but this one is by a reporter who delves farther into other aspects of the case, as well as the whole Dahmer story itself. My #doublespin !! #bookspin #bookspinbingo

I didn‘t love this one tremendously but I didn‘t hate it at all either.. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I definitely loved the outcomes that the characters ultimately got, which makes it worth the read!

Squirrel Hill is maybe 30 minutes from me. I remember the day of this shooting clearly, but I didn‘t know everything. This book doesn‘t glorify the shooter AT ALL. In fact, it mentions him maybe twice.

What this books focuses on is the people and places of Squirrel Hill and how they came together in tons of ways to lean on each other and help one another after this horrid act. It‘s well researched, and it makes me proud to be a Pittsburgher.

This was a near perfect thriller that I had to give 5 🌟.. you know something good has to happen when you find out, or are made to believe you found out 🧐 , who the killer is in the very beginning.. and to say she made something good happen is an understatement. This one is a mind-blower, with great underlying motives and lessons. My only gripe is that an animal dies. 🚨 This is not one for you though if you have a weak stomach for gory details.

I really really enjoyed her writing, but obviously with this one being so short, there‘s a lot left out.. and a lot of googling for me, because I‘m unfamiliar with Japanese folklore.. but I still enjoyed it as a quick, engaging read! Definitely borrow this one from the library though unless you‘re a re-reader.

I‘ve seen this book on my horror and thriller lists, but never thought to pick it up until I was releasing it from processing on Friday and saw how small it is! So I snagged it on a whim and am starting this dreary Halloween day with it! 👻

Journalist Julie K. Brown did not skip a beat in this one. It greatly details hers and others relentless and risky accounts of trying to bring down Epstein over and over. Unfortunately, even with how well this book is written, and no matter how exhaustive her , there will never be answers to questions that people still do not want answered.

Another one by R.H. Sin, (because I say he carries this one), that speaks volumes about becoming a better version of yourself and about moving on.

“Peephole”: a website where you can watch guests at Air B&B‘s through hidden cameras..

This book was terrifying because it is so realistic! Loved it! I couldn‘t stop reading once I got involved.
