Review: Mean Girl

Mean Girl Mean Girl by Natasha A. Salnikova
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I hate to do the dreaded one star but I can't, in good conscience, give more. Why I even finished it is somewhat a mystery other than I just couldn't believe it was as bad as it was. It was like being Punk'd via fiction. The term absurd doesn't even quantify the level of believability in Mean Girl. I found myself looking around me as I read, almost in disbelief, like someone out there in my reality could save me from what I was doing to myself. I'm still shell shocked by it. It could have only been made worse had I paid for it.

Review: The Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having watched the movie before I read the book, I found reading this in the way I normally devour a book impossible. So I decided to do the audiobook and I really enjoyed it. As with every novel turned movie, there are about a million things in the book you can't possibly get from the movie. There is so much more to every character from Clarice to Dr. Chilton.

Thomas Harris has created a world and characters you couldn't forget if you tried.

Review: The Last Thing She Ever Did

The Last Thing She Ever Did The Last Thing She Ever Did by Gregg Olsen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another Kindle Unlimited book that I would have paid separately for. Despite truly hating nearly every character except the three year old, I did love the book. Like they say, love or hate a character, it simply means they are well written. The Last Thing She Ever Did is a prime example of that.

Review: I Am Watching You

I Am Watching You I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Finally, the description "a psychological thriller with unexpected twists" lives up to the hype. So many fall short but I Am Watching You actually delivers. Often the changing perspective/narrator style can be tiresome and Driscoll did it just right. My only gripe is that I wanted more from the 'unsub'. The tiny teases she did give could have been a much larger part and served to wrench up the tension all the way through although I see where she had to be careful not to give the twist away.
