The Marriage Pact

I enjoy a good cult story. I thought The Sixes by Kate White was a great read – actually, that novel prompted me to read all of White’s books back to back. To be honest, as soon as I started reading The Marriage Pact, I didn’t really know where it was going. It started outContinue reading “The Marriage Pact”

The Last Thing He Told Me

I had a stepfather once. It was awful. Which is why this book felt so relatable – in part – and also hard to get through. The summer I was eight years old, my granny died and we abruptly moved into a new house with my mom’s soon-to-be husband. At the time, it was aContinue reading “The Last Thing He Told Me”

Behind Her Eyes

WARNING: This review has spoilers. So, if you haven’t read the book or watched the Netflix limited series of the same name, you may want to skip it. ‘What the actual f*$%!?” was the phrase I yelled out loud in my car back in 2017 when this audiobook first wrapped up. I was NOT havingContinue reading “Behind Her Eyes”

Too Good to be True

There are usually two sides or versions of the truth. Sometimes there are three. Too Good to be True is an engaging story that leads you down a few dead ends before ending with the truth. Kind of like a funhouse room of mirrors or one of those pitch black Halloween mazes. I was ableContinue reading “Too Good to be True”

The Dark Lake

Some thrillers keep you engaged with dialogue and plot twists – they’re good, easy reads, and many times, forgettable. But sometimes you stumble upon a gem – the likes of Karin Slaughter and Gregg Olsen. The dialogue and scenes are complex and intricate, they slow you down so you’re able to soak everything in andContinue reading “The Dark Lake”

People Like Her

I first came across this book on BOTM, but bypassed it in favor of The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins. The latter was supposed to be akin to a modern day retelling of Jane Eyre. Well, it ended up being a huge disappointment (and a total waste of a credit!). Clearly I’m not in theContinue reading “People Like Her”

The Flight Attendant

Until a few weeks ago, I had no idea that this book existed. That wouldn’t be unusual because there are so, so many books out there – but this genre is right up my alley. My friend introduced me to the book – and series on HBO – and I knew I had to checkContinue reading “The Flight Attendant”

Goodnight Beautiful

Misery (Stephen King) and The Woman in the Window (A. J. Finn) fans rejoice – this is your book! If I’m honest, the synopsis for Goodnight Beautiful does not do the book justice. So if you’re someone who glanced at the golden cover, took a peek inside, and decided to go after something more…captivating, goContinue reading “Goodnight Beautiful”

The Night Swim

Book of the Month Club (BOTM) describes this read as “a thriller for those who eat, sleep, and breathe true crime.” I have to agree that is an excellent choice of words. I loved how the structure includes first-person narration, letter, and podcast. Okay, so maybe in my very first blog post I may haveContinue reading “The Night Swim”
