I’ve done a few of these mini reviews in the past, and I really enjoy them for books I don’t feel like writing a full review on, so today I bring you 5 mini reviews! This month, I’ve really been in the mood for some romance, so these mini reviews have some romance books as well as some thriller, and some young adult!
Kate has just broken up with her high school boyfriend after a 10 year relationship, and all she wants is to have fun, and figure out what she’s like as a single woman. Unfortunately, recent murders in her hometown have her on edge. When she realizes that all of the murdered women look eerily similar to her, she begins to worry.
She especially starts to panic when she can’t shake the feeling that she’s being watched and followed. When he ex-boyfriend gets dragged into the investigation, she wonders if the murder is much closer to home than she ever realized. Will she be the next victim? Will her past come back to haunt her?
July has been my best reading month so far in 2017, so I’m feeling pretty good about that! This month I finished 26 books. Below I’ll share each of the books I read and let you know which were my favorites!
All of the titles link back to Goodreads, so be sure to check them out!
On her way to work Jen sees her neighbor drop his keys outside of his house. She picks them up, and attempts to flag him down, but he drives away before she’s able to get to him. In an attempt to be helpful, she uses the keys to enter his house, find some paper, and leave a note that says to call her to pick them up.
When she’s later called into the police station and is accused of entering the house and completely trashing some valuable artwork, she is shocked. In an attempt to clear her name before she’s arrested, she starts to do her own investigation and realizes she’d better work fast before she puts herself in more danger.
Hello all! Today I bring you two mini reviews, one for Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and one for One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus! As you may know, mini-reviews are something new for me, but every now and then I read a book that I don’t quite have enough thoughts for in order to merit a full review, but I want to share my feelings either way!
When a car accidentally crashes into the house Gina shares with her husband and two children, the aftermath is worse than she could have ever imagined. Because of the car crash, it’s revealed that her husband was actually a serial killer, and Gina had no idea. Now, she spends her time moving from place to place and changing her name as well as her kids names, in order to avoid the threats she gets from the people who think she knew about her husband’s recreational activities. Although her (now ex) husband is in prison, she doesn’t feel safe.
When Gina, now going by Gwen, ends up in Stillhouse Lake, she feels like she can finally settle down and make a home for her family. Unfortunately for Gwen, that may not be possible. When a body is discovered in the lake behind her house, killed in much the same way that her husband murdered his victims, the police start asking questions that she can’t answer. In addition to the body, threatening letters start showing up from her ex-husband…how does he know where she’s living, and how are the letters getting past prison security? Gwen will do whatever it takes to keep her children safe, even if it means revealing her true identity in the town she thought she’d finally settled down in.
