Review: I Killed Zoe Spanos by Kit Frick

I will confess that I do not have super high hopes for most YA thrillers. Usually YA thrillers try hard, but there is just something missing – I can’t even quite explain what, but I guess once you get used to the sleezy underbelly of adult murder and scheming, it’s hard to go back to teenagers. But I trust Kit Frick, and when I heard the premise of her next book I just had to give it a shot. I am so…

Review: The Guest List by Lucy Foley

This was not a standard Book of the Month pick for me, mostly because the premise felt so meh to me. Agatha Christie did this decades ago, right? So why is this any different? I am pleased to say that while The Guest List is not built on an entirely original concept, it stands on its own two feet remarkably well. Applicable PopSugar 2020 Prompts: A book that’s published in 2020, A book featuring one of the seven deadly sins, A book with a three-word…

Review: Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid

I don’t remember where I saw this book – it must have been on some sort of “upcoming Winter 2019 releases we’re most excited for” list, and I put it on my Amazon wishlist. It then became a Reese’s Book Club pick soon thereafter, and when COVID rumblings began, it was nigh impossible to find a copy for under $20. Luckily someone in a book buy/sell/trade group I’m in was selling their copy for $12, and so I picked it…

Review: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

I’m a simple woman: I see a bestselling novel being produced as a TV show, I go buy a copy of that novel and read it before everyone watches it so I can be snooty about how much the book was better on Twitter. OK, in this case I had had a copy of Little Fires Everywhere on my shelf for a while, but when I saw the Hulu trailer I knew it was time to pull it down and read…

Review: Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel

I am a true crime aficionado, but I feel fairly certain that if I asked you if you knew who Gypsy Rose and Dee Dee Blanchard are, you’d have a pretty good guess. Gypsy Rose Blanchard was the victim of her mother Dee Dee’s Munchhausen By Proxy for her entire life, which was cut short by Gypsy Rose’s Internet boyfriend in 2015. Now imprisoned for having her mother killed, Gypsy Rose is able to thrive and flourish as a young…

Review: The Broken Girls by Simone St. James

I have heard people rave about The Broken Girls for quite some time now. For one reason or another, while it stayed on my radar it never popped its way up onto my bookshelf, or my TBR. But when Simone St. James had a new book release on Book of the Month, I selected it as my choice and then realized maybe I should read something else by her first. I received a copy of The Broken Girls right around that time…

Review: The Other People by C.J. Tudor

I wasn’t going to buy any more books besides my monthly Book of the Month purchases. And then our beloved booksandlala created her own mystery/thriller book club on GoodReads – the Literally Dead Book Club – and suddenly, I had to buy another damn book. The first book in Lala’s new club was a new release by C.J. Tudor: The Other People. I read Tudor’s first book, The Chalk Man, last year and enjoyed myself well enough. I didn’t have super high…

Review: You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen

Hi, I’m Patricia, and if you’ve met me, you know I am certifiably nuts for Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. (See: my reviews of The Wife Between Us and An Anonymous Girl, their first two books). So when I didn’t get my wishes to read their third book approved by NetGalley, I was devastated – until my blogging BFF Katie over at Pages and Pugs said she had a hardcopy ARC, but prefers their books on audio. She sent it to me…
