Mini REVIEW: The Good Daughter

Although it has been a couple of years since I have read one of my beloved Karin Slaughter books, it was nice to be introduced to fresh brand new characters. The Good Daughter differed from many other Slaughter reads as it wasn't just a cut and dry whodunit. We have much more family relations and emotional struggles all relating back to the first horrific incident. Although still with plenty of twist and turns, and many edge of   moments, this is definitely a character driven thriller.

September 2017 FAIRY LOOT – All That Sass

Again, you guys know the score... I will try to keep this short as I am fully aware that the content of box boxes is generally plastered absolutely everywhere. So I will just give a quick description from the spoiler card and a super short opinion. Once again, this wasn't my favorite box, as I have mentioned it before I am into the subscription boxes for the books (if only BOTM shipped to UK) and the book just wasn't what I was expecting and not something I would generally pick up AGAIN. I wasnt very enthusiastic about anything in my box as I had seen it daily for over a week on Instagram... I received the box about 10 days late, the first box just went missing. And although I have all of the books on myself I have read very little of the books that this box is referencing, aside from the Grisha trilogy which I thought was garbage. So I canceled my subscription... FINALLY. only to resubscribe when I discovered what was going to be in next months box... because I am weak and pathetic. Anyway check out what I received down below....

Mini REVIEW: Seven Suspects

For the record, I was unaware that this was part of a series before I started but that took absolutely nothing away from the story. In a nut shell the story follows Bobbi, a transgender and who had previously suffered through rape as she struggles to discover who is stalking her. After narrowing her suspicions down to a list of 6 she hunts them down and eliminate them one by one from her list. I loved Bobbi, she is so strong and determined and so easy to care about and I really got to like her and enjoy her sense of humor. Reading a lot of thrillers, I love finding a gem like this, with plenty of diversity and representation, and genuinely surprising twists. It is a brilliant with out a doubt an edge of your seat mystery with plenty of suspense. I am 100% going to go back and start the series from the beginning.

Mini REVIEW: The Other Girl

It has been years since I have read an Erica Spindler book and this one didn't disappoint, it was a real heart pounding thriller. Although I sussed out the plot quite early on (I read a lot of thrillers) this didn't detract from the storyline of Miranda, the cop is in a race against time to solve a murder before her past comes back to haunt her. I loved the whole troubled teen now a cop trope, I like the amount of grittiness it adds to storyline. The downside for me was all the love scenes. But that's just my personal preference. Love gets in the way of murder and action, but hey! thats just me. Aside from the love this was a really good top-notch thriller, and I would recommend to all of my thriller reading buddies!
