Okay, so I’m not going to lie! I may or may not have read this book in one night. 😂 I can’t believe it took me this long to finally read this book. I was completely hooked from the beginning to end. I started this book at 8pm (after making sure all my children were tucked as snug little bugs in their beds) and finished it at 3am. Definitely sleep deprived but oh so worth it! I loved the way it was written and I thoroughly enjoyed the characters. I love Pippa, Ravi and Cara but I have to admit my favorite character was Pippa’s dad, Victor (I know, I’m getting old)! 😂 I loved him and laughed out loud at so many parts he was in. He was the little light I needed during all the crazy and amazing twists and turns that I didn’t see coming! This is also a 5⭐ read for me! I can’t wait to read the next book in this series when it comes out! It will definitely be another all nighter for me! 😂 . What’s a book you stayed up late reading because you couldn’t put it down?
Synopsis: Everyone in Fairview knows the story. Pretty and popular high school senior Andie Bell was murdered by her boyfriend, Sal Singh, who then killed himself. It was all anyone could talk about. And five years later, Pip sees how the tragedy still haunts her town. But she can’t shake the feeling that there was more to what happened that day. She knew Sal when she was a child, and he was always so kind to her. How could he possibly have been a killer? Now a senior herself, Pip decides to reexamine the closed case for her final project, at first just to cast doubt on the original investigation. But soon she discovers a trail of dark secrets that might actually prove Sal innocent . . . and the line between past and present begins to blur. Someone in Fairview doesn’t want Pip digging around for answers, and now her own life might be in danger.

I’ve had this book on tbr list for over a year now and I’m so glad I finally read. It was a great, fast pace, psychological thriller that I needed. It took me on a whirlwind ride of who done it and I did not expect that ending. It started with a gripping beginning and ended with a jaw dropping ending. The middle was a little slow for me and maybe is was because the beginning was so good but then the author had to explain the story and slowed the middle down a little but the ending pulled it through and I didn’t see it coming. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫.
Synopsis: In 2009, Edie had New York’s social world in her thrall. Mercurial and beguiling, she was the shining star of a group of recent graduates living in a Brooklyn loft and treating New York like their playground. When Edie’s body was found near a suicide note at the end of a long, drunken night, no one could believe it. Grief, shock, and resentment scattered the group and brought the era to an abrupt end. A decade later, Lindsay has come a long way from the drug-addled world of Calhoun Lofts. She has devoted best friends, a cozy apartment, and a thriving career as a magazine’s head fact-checker. But when a chance reunion leads Lindsay to discover an unsettling video from that hazy night, she starts to wonder if Edie was actually murdered—and, worse, if she herself was involved. As she rifles through those months in 2009—combing through case files, old technology, and her fractured memories—Lindsay is forced to confront the demons of her own violent history to bring the truth to light.
found this gem of a book on Kindle Unlimited and I absolutely loved it. The story has an Agatha Christie, And Then There Were None vibe but with such a great twist. This book took me on a whirlwind of twist and turns that kept my emotions/anxiety on high alert! I absolutely loved this one and I definitely recommend it. It was a fast paced thriller that you can’t put down! I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫.
Synopsis: The promise of a luxury vacation at a secluded wilderness spa has brought together eight lucky guests. But nothing is what they were led to believe. As a fierce storm barrels down and all contact with the outside is cut off, the guests fear that it’s not a getaway. It’s a trap. Each one has a secret. Each one has something to hide. And now, as darkness closes in, they all have something to fear—including one another. Alerted to the vanished party of strangers, homicide cop Mason Deniaud and search and rescue expert Callie Sutton must brave the brutal elements of the mountains to find them. But even Mason and Callie have no idea how precious time is. Because the clock is ticking, and one by one, the guests of Forest Shadow Lodge are being hunted. For them, surviving becomes part of a diabolical game.
This is probably one of my favorites by King and one of the longest books I’ve read. I a little intimated by it’s size when I started it but the story completely sucked me in. It start with a bang and ended with a bang. I think I devoured this book within a few days because I couldn’t put it down. My emotions ran all over the place in the story. There were obvious ass holes and couldn’t stand them but I love the good guys and was fighting with them through the whole story. I can’t imagine being cut off from the entire world and not knowing what is going to happen next so Under the Dome brought a sense of uneasiness to me. I definitely give this book 5⭐️.
Synopsis: On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away. Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens—town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing—even murder—to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.
I love @meganlmiranda books and this was really good! It fast paced with so many great twist and turns. I really enjoyed the characters and felt they were easy to connect with. I did feel like the story dragged a little in the middle so I was starting to lose interested but I kept reading and it pick back up. I enjoyed the relationship with Arden and her Mother because it felt real and showed the turbulence between them. This isn’t my favorite of Miranda’s book but still a good read. Thank you to @netgalley and @simonandschusterfor the ARC. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫.
Arden Maynor was just a child when she was swept away while sleepwalking during a terrifying rainstorm and went missing for days. Strangers and friends, neighbors and rescue workers, set up search parties and held vigils, praying for her safe return. Against all odds, she was found, alive, clinging to a storm drain. The girl from Widow Hills was a living miracle. Arden’s mother wrote a book. Fame followed. Fans and fan letters, creeps, and stalkers. And every year, the anniversary. It all became too much. As soon as she was old enough, Arden changed her name and disappeared from the public eye. Now a young woman living hundreds of miles away, Arden goes by Olivia. She’s managed to stay off the radar for the last few years. But with the twentieth anniversary of her rescue approaching, the media will inevitably renew its interest in Arden. Where is she now? Soon Olivia feels like she’s being watched and begins sleepwalking again, like she did long ago, even waking outside her home. Until late one night she jolts awake in her yard. At her feet is the corpse of a man she knows—from her previous life, as Arden Maynor.
This was my second Stephen King book I read earlier this year and absolutely loved it. I literally couldn’t put it down and read it in 3 nights. I really enjoyed this one because the story was so intriguing with a different twist. I fell in love with all the kids in this book and rooted for them until the very end! This story was engaging and King does amazing writing when it surrounds pure evil. He knows exactly how to get you hooked into a story of innocence and bring out the evil and selfishness of those around it. This one is a definite 5⭐ read!
Synopsis: In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.” In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.
I have loved @melindaleigh1 books for years now, especially The Morgan Dane series. She is one of my go to authors because I love both her stories and her characters. I’m excited and already hooked on her new series, The Bree Taggert Series, which debuted in March! The characters are great and so easy to connect with and the story is intriguing with just the right amount of suspense/mystery and a little romance. Thank you to @netgalleyand @amazonpublishing for the ARC. This book came out it March but there is a second book in this series that is scheduled to come out in September and I’m so excited this story continuing. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
