Audio Review: ‘Two Can Keep A Secret’

Nobody is more surprised than me that I decided to pick this one up, despite not liking Karan McManus’s previous book, One Of Us Is Lying, or that I actually really liked this one!

This is not a sequel and can be read as a standalone, and I definitely recommend this one over One Of Us Is Lying.

Author: Karen M. McManus
Series: Standalone

Audio Review: ‘One Of Us Is Lying’

Mystery/thriller books are really hit or miss with me and unfortunately, this one was a miss. I really wanted to like this book, and I couldn’t stop reading it even as it became a big mess of a story. I considering DNF-ing it but I also wanted to know how it ended!

I will say this reminded me of E. Lockhart’s book “We Were Liars” and….I strongly disliked that book as well.

Title: One Of Us Is Lying
Author: Karen M. McManus
Series: Standalone
Rating: 2/5

TW: Depression, mentions of suicide, homophobia, cheating

Audiobook Review: ‘Sadie’

I didn’t expect to fall so in love with Sadie, but I can easily say this is one of my favorite books I’ve read in 2018. Sometimes it’s the books that aren’t hyped up a lot, you don’t hear too much about, that end up hitting the NYT Bestsellers List and end up being real gems – even if the story breaks your heart along the way.

Title: Sadie

Review: ‘Truly Devious’

“Look! A riddle! Time for fun! Should we use a rope or gun?”

Are you looking for a murder mystery, YA style, set at a boarding school in the mountains of Vermont set in both present time and throwbacks to an unsolved murder from the 1930’s? Then I have found just the book for you! Truly, Devious.

Audiobook Review: ‘Bonfire’

This book was as boring as a town called Barrens, Indiana sounds like it would be. I honestly don’t know how or why I finished this book, except so many good reviews made me think something must happen! But NOTHING happened until 90% into the book. This book is supposed to be a mystery or a thriller? Nothing was thrilling until the 90% mark. THEN action happened. And then the book was over.

Title: Bonfire
Author: Krysten Ritter
Rating: 1/5 stars
