The Third Wife

The first thriller I ever read was Carrie by Stephen King, although that probably falls more in the horror/fantastical genre. I read through many of his other books and then branched out to Karin Slaughter, Kate White, Megan Miranda, Riley Sage, Lisa Jewell, and several others. They all bring a special flair to the table.Continue reading “The Third Wife”

Leaving Time

When I was a junior in high school, I hung out in the library A LOT – during study hall if I could get a pass, and always during lunch.

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‚Ķcaptivating, goContinue reading “Goodnight Beautiful”

I thought I’d give Fredrik Blackman’s Anxious People a try because it sounded interesting/funny and received a lot of praise. About 37 pages in, I started toContinue reading “Anxious People”

The Book of Two Ways

Warning: This review contains what some may consider spoilers. Read on at your own risk! I don’t like surprises. That’s why I prefer to read paperbacks; when things get grim, you can flip ahead and read the ending – just to make sure everything turns out okay. That’s not exactly the case with audiobooks, whichContinue reading “The Book of Two Ways”
