New York Times bestselling author Tarryn Fisher delivers a pulse-pounding, fast-paced suspense novel that will leave you breathless. A thriller you won’t be able to put down!
Thursday’s husband, Seth, has two other wives. She’s never met them, and she doesn’t know anything about them. She agreed to this unusual arrangement because she’s so crazy about him.
But one day, s...more
But you're safe, no animal abuse or murder in this one.
I'm not even sure how to organize my thoughts on this book. Did I enjoy it? I must have. I didn't want to tear my eyes away from the page. I felt like I needed to know what was going on. It was, I guess, that special kind of deliciously trashy beach read that is ridiculous, unbelievable, and yet impossible to put down. 2 1/2 stars it is then.
It's told from the point of view of a woman whose husband has two other wiv ...more

I can’t trust Goodreads reviews anymore because how is this a 4 starred book??!! IM—
I think this is another instance where the most of the people who’ve read from this author— are new to the thriller genre and absolutely love it.
This book’s plot was ridiculous; right to the climax—ridiculous to the point where it’s non-believable. Actually most thrillers are non-believable but there’s a groundness to it, a reality check of plausible believability. But not here, folks. ...more
Dear God, it’s me, not Margaret, oh hell no Chelsea( sorry using the `hell` word), this is Nilufer.( you may call me Nily shortly) I honesty, truly, genuinely ask you because I didn’t find the answer. WTF that I just read?( sorry for my language, I already close my mouth but unfortunately my fingers are still functioning)
This book is devilish, surprising, a g ...more
Tarryn Fisher is and always will be one of my all time favourite authors because of The Opportunist. Whilst I am a big fan of her romance novels, The Wives was my first attempt at reading one of her psychological thrillers. This review is going to be slightly problematic because this book was both a mindfuck and a clusterfuck at the same time.

My first tip for this book wou ...more
Pre-reading thoughts! 💭
I can’t wait to see how fucked up this is going to get. 😍
I didn’t realize the protagonist’s actual name was Thursday until the very end of the book.
How did I miss that? I mean, it says it right in the synopsis.
I honestly thought that was just the day her husband slept with her!
And if that isn't any indication, I will just say it, this story was something else. I have to give it points for being unique.
Thursday is married to Seth. Seth has two other spouses. None of them know one another, but to Thursday's knowledge they are all living in ...more
He needs to read this book...
It's a little far-fetched but a lot entertaining. It's a fast read and I'll admit to being absorbed the entire time.
Probably 3.5 stars but it's Christmas and I'm feeling all generous and stuff.
Thank you to my GR friend, Denise Reed, for sharing her copy with me. I will pay it forward and mail it to the first US ...more
The Wives is a psychological thriller about a woman in a polygamist marriage.
Thursday married her dream man. He treats her like gold and is the perfect husband. The only flaw is that Seth happens to have two other wives. Thursday is the second wife and only gets to see Seth on Thursdays (yes, her name matches the day of the week she sees her husband). She endures this arrangement to be with the man she loves. However, when Thursday begins digging for information on Seth’s other two wiv ...more
You take different parts of the projects your friends have done, shove them together, give it "your own style" and then present it to your teacher (who btw rolls her eyes)
this is what Taryn Fisher has done

the first half was super promising but then it went soooooo downhill. it had every cliche thriller trope and there were so many plot holes it didn't even make sense
tbh the synopsis of this book is the best thing about it
I really, really wanted to read this book! I had heard so much about it. I got declined for an ARC so what did I do? I ran out and bought it the second I could, and devoured it! So I really loved it...until I did not. This was a really interesting, intriguing, kind of car wreck ..can't look away book, until about the 75% point and then I was like what?! Then it just got too weird, even for me. I can take weird, trust me.
So most of this story is from Thursday's POV. Thursday is wife ...more
In your wildest imagination could you ever be content knowing your husband had two other wives?
Are you serious?!
You don’t know them, you don’t live together.
But yet there they are… out there somewhere, sharing time with him.
Could you possibly be satisfied with this bizarre relationship?

The first half of it I was sure I was going to LOVE IT, but then... shit happens, and I didn't like the direction it took.
But I will say this: I absolutely adore Tarryn's way with words. Her writing only improves with every book!
Confessions Of A Twisted Mind- "When things are that perfect, something is wrong."
TF is a self-confessed "Swirler of Emotions" and the longer the swirl, the tougher it becomes to separate one from the rest. Much like Thursday, whose life is spinning so fast, that events, accidents, emotions and reality is blurring right in front of her eyes. She's in a consensual relationship with a polygamist and totally acceptable of the Other Two Wives called Monday and Tuesday.
"How have I become t ...more
THE WIVES by TARRYN FISHER is an engaging, fast-paced, dark, gritty, and twisty thriller that had quite the bizarre, intriguing and original premise to it. I was immediately sucked into the story and could not put this book down for the first half of the story. The first half was absolutely unputdownable and had my full attention and then around the 50% mark my attention started to wane a little bit and then well the ending happe ...more
Can I just say REALLY!?! Or NO, how about just NO!
Let’s face it: “The Wives” by Tarryn Fisher started out strong, really strong and I was loving it. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday? Wowza. That is wild and is definitely not for me but I’m crazy intrigued (at least by the storyline, lol)!
Unfortunately by about 60% the novel just went off the rails. That said, I was still all in.. and it got better (thank gosh) and that was simply because Thursday kept my attention. Heck, I liked her and I be ...more
I could not put this down for the first 50% and my mind was a swimming. The last half was even crazier and the snarky attitude on point.
Super twisty / Super twisted
I might share a bottle of Pinot Grigio, but NOT my husband. I also wouldn't be keen to be assigned "a day of the week." Poor little Thursday is searching for a polygamy group online and it proves difficult. Where shall she turn? Will she go there? Yep
There is some darkness and a lot o ...more
I picked up this book on a lark more or less. It had been getting great reviews, ...more
Whoa, now that was a crazy ride!!
“Imagining what the future holds proves difficult when factoring in two other women who share your husband.”
Thursday only sees her husband once a week. It’s not an arrangement she likes, but it’s one she has to live with, since Seth has two other wives. She sometimes can’t believe she agreed to this, and at times she wishes she could just have him to herself.
She’s never met either of the other women. She doesn’t even know the ...more
the similarities are so noticeable that i was able to predict the entire last 1/3 of this book. thats not to say this a horrible story - its actually written quite well - its just the familiarity of the plotline made it so i couldnt enjoy the mystery aspect of the novel. plus there are some things that are thrown in just for shock value, not for relevance or plot developme ...more
'THE WIVES:' Is a full length, stand alone Psychological Thriller by Tarryn Fisher
Holy shit! I don’t even know how to go about writing up this review! I’m sitting here in awe of this author! Readers after me have no idea what they are getting themselves into!! What a roller coaster of a ride, twists and turns, nail biting, suspenseful heart racing moments. This book was utterly unique, this author is the queen when it comes to stepping out of the box, her knack at throwing stories at us wher ...more
Read this last evening and I have been thinking about this book all day. I wish YOU and I lived closer because I would totally lend it to you.
My first encounter with Tarryn Fisher was "Atheists Who Kneel and Pray" which without a doubt made me a devoted fan. Her upcoming release "The Wives" is definitely going to be hard for you to commit to New Year's plans.
Thursday is a hard working nurse in Seattle who ...more
