Ink and Bone – Lisa Unger

Ink and Bone – Lisa Unger

Ink and Bone by Lisa Unger so surpassed my expectations. I was thinking it would be a sort of twisty read with a little psychic juju thrown in. But man, I was not expecting to read a dark thriller steeped in hauntings and the pull of a small town to a young […]

Before the Fall – Noah Hawley

Before the Fall – Noah Hawley

 I had no idea what I was getting into when I started reading Before the Fall by Noah Hawley. I was thinking it was a standard disaster tale but that is not at all what I got. I instead read a story that started with a plane crash but soon spiraled into a […]

Keep You Close – Lucie Whitehouse

Keep You Close – Lucie Whitehouse

 Keep You Close by Lucie Whitehouse was an interesting read. I loved the plot line but not the characters which made reading it a little odd. I did really like that I did not guess one of the surprise endings and that nudged this from a three star to a three […]

Most Wanted – Lisa Scottoline

Most Wanted – Lisa Scottoline

Lisa Scottoline is a new to me author, but I have heard of her and seen her books around for years. When I saw Most Wanted, I loved the synopsis and jumped at the chance to read it. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into the read, but a mashup […]

What Remains of Me – Alison Gaylin

What Remains of Me – Alison Gaylin

What Remains of Me made me think of what could have been for Marissa on the O.C. I loved me some twisty drama on that show and I could picture the characters at place in that world. A teen party girl on the fringes of Hollywood society, Kelly Lund enters […]

Take the Fall – Emily Hainsworth

Take the Fall – Emily Hainsworth

Take The Fall was a surprising thriller. Surprising in that I did not guess the killer at all which I loved, and surprising in that even though I was kept guessing till the end, I did not love it. Now, I liked it just fine, but the emotional hook just […]

The Winter Girl – Matt Marinovich

The Winter Girl – Matt Marinovich

The Winter Girl is sadly another un-thrilling thriller. I actually went to bed with 40 minutes left to read in it. You may have picked up from reading this site, that I generally finish a book a day and will stay up till they are done. I put this one down with […]

The Case of Lisandra P. – Helene Gremillon

The Case of Lisandra P. – Helene Gremillon

The Case of Lisandra P. is hyped as perfect for lovers of The Girl on the Train which I am, so I was so excited when I began reading. Then the excitement went down, chapter by chapter. Now The Case of Lisandra P. is not a bad book, but it is no […]
