I really enjoyed parts of this book, and other parts I didn‘t. Overall, I thought it was okay. I was a little disappointed, considering the hype and awards this won!

FeastOfFiction Agreed! I thought this was such a boring book. 7mo

What would you do to spice up your marriage? This couple takes it to the next level!

I quickly got through the last half of this book! That‘s when things started to get exciting for me! Read it to find out more!

A twist on a thriller, when everything goes “right.”

There was a lack of suspense and excitement in this book for me. I found this strange considering the multiple murders that took place...

A quirky, fun novel about Bernadette and her family. After I got over the no actual chapters— I really enjoyed this tale of mishaps and adventure.

CoffeeNBooks Great book! 7mo

This book was so good! I‘m not usually a huge fan of historical fiction, but this book drew me right in!

What sacrifices would you be willing to make to do what is right, or to help those you love?

If you haven‘t picked this one up yet, you need to!

I got stuck in this book!! It took weeks to read. I have a hard time bailing on books, but if I did bail on books, this would have been one of them! Although, I did enjoy the last 50 or so pages.

I should have known better! I usually don‘t like “the other side of the story” books. I almost bailed on it, but decided to finish it up.

The Good Girl | Mary Kubica

Pickpick

I was not a huge fan of the way this book was organized. You find out the end result really early on, and then the rest of the book is filling in the details from the middle. Overall, it was a good book. A story about a young woman that is abducted, The Good Girl is told from three different perspectives, the kidnapper, the victim‘s mother, and the detective in charge of the case.

Set in 1945, Maddie goes on a journey with her husband and his friend to find the Loch Ness monster. She had no way of knowing how this trip would change her! Not a bad read, but also not a page turner.

This book grabbed me from the beginning! I started it last night and made myself stop reading to sleep. I picked it right back up this morning and didn‘t stop reading until the end! A creepy read for sure! I might think twice before hitting up a rest area again!

RadicalReader @jpellet looking forward to starting this novel just picked it up from the library 10mo
jpellet @RadicalReader I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 10mo

This book started a little slow, but I really enjoyed it! I was definitely able to visualize the setting based on my one summer at Girl Scout camp! Thank goodness my experience was not the same as Emma‘s!

megzlynn This was my favorite read of 2018 solely because it brought so many memories of camp back to me. 10mo

The first half of this book was so confusing!! It‘s told from the perspective of different characters, in different periods of time. It took a while to get used to it. Once I figured out what was going on, I began to enjoy the story.

I have such a hard time with audiobooks!! The only time I listen to them is on long car rides. I think I would have liked this more if I had read it. Not giving up on Bosch yet!

I had periods of time where I was really into this book, and other times I didn‘t love it. This book lets you into the irrational, creepy thoughts of a stalker. How far will Joe go to get the girl he wants?? Next stop—“You” the lifetime series. I an anxious to see how they bring this book to life!

It took me a long time to pick up the second and third book in this trilogy. I was so angry after reading “Me Before You”. I am so glad I finally decided to give it a chance!! I really enjoyed all 3 books of Louisa Clark‘s story!
