Title: The Better Sister
Author: Alafair Burke
Comments: Pretty slow and uneventful in the middle of the book. But the end? Awesome! I predicted one of the plot twists but some really got me. I enjoyed it. It has a very interesting character dynamic that I’ve never read before.
Title: Every Last Lie
Author: Mary Kubica
Comments: It’s a quick read. Definitely a page turner. But I was disappointed with the ending. The ending is kind of relieving and is kind of happy but not at all how I pictured it ending. The entire book is made up of all of theories that the main character makes up about the death of her husband. You get so caught up in the theories but none of them end up being true. So I was a little disappointed even though the ending is happy. I appreciate the epilogue.
Title: All the Lost Things
Author: Michelle Sacks
Comments: I really enjoyed the point of view. The main character is entertaining, smart, and very insightful. She alone kept me interested in the plot. It’s a very well written novel but very heartbreaking. I wasn’t expecting the ending at all which is always something I enjoy whether I agree with it or not. I’d recommend this just for people to experience the unique point of view.
Title: The Shallows
Author: Matt Goldman
Comments: I’ve read all three of Goldman’s novels and I love his style of writing. This was my least favorite of the three but it’s still so good. I think I enjoyed it less because it involves politics and lawyers and that stuff gets confusing for me and it’s not interesting to me. But the crime itself? Super interesting. Shap’s personal life is most interesting in this novel. Would absolutely recommend this! As well as his others!
Title: The Wife Between Us
Author: Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
Comments: So many twists that I can’t not give this book a 9. So well written. It’s long but it’s to the point. Great characters. Wow the plot twists were totally unpredictable. I knew something fishy was going on and I had a theory, but it was way off. Such a great book from beginning to end. Would highly recommend!
