I’ve read 6 books this month.
Five Star Reviews:
Little Darlings by Melanie Golding – This book was my first ever advanced reading copy and man was it a great debut novel. It was a modern day Grimm’s Fairy tale a new mom has her twins go missing and when they are brought back she’s convinced that the twins are not her’s and have been replaced with evil ones. The writing make your skin crawl with it’s descriptions and the pace is a fast read. It’s released on April 30th.
Four Star Reviews:
The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker – This book has a really cool concept that there is a disease spreading that causes the person to sleep and dream for a unknown time. The story is told in third person as you drift in and out of people in the town dealing with the disease around them.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon – This book has been on my TBR for far too long, Ive heard it raved about for years, and it did not let down it had a little bit of a pacing problem at the end that really slowed it down that caused it from being a five star. An incredible story that is told through an autistic teenager as he investigates the murder of neighborhood dog, and finds much more of the truth about his neighborhood and family.
This Body’s Not Big Enough for Both of Us by Edgar Cantero – One of the craziest stories I’ve ever read about boy and girl twins that share the same body one is the detective and is the wisecracker. A really fun satire that pokes a lot of fun at the detective genre that the author clearly loves.
Three Star Reviews:
Looker by Laura Sims – This novel puts you into the mind of a woman losing her grip on reality as she can not have kids and ends up hating everybody else who does, when a starlet moves into the neighborhood. There’s a lot that reminded me the novel Notes on the Scandal, which I felt it was written good but to similar to Notes on a Scandal to enjoy.
The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan – This novel is about 36 survivors aboard a lifeboat in the early 1900’s on the eve of World War I. This novel was so good until the third act where the novel shift from survival to a trial of an incident that happened the lifeboat.
