What in the whacked out, body odor having, internet stalking, Paducah visiting heck did I just read???

This book is nuts and I loved it.
Kim ~ It’s All About the Thrill
After hearing of this book from a fellow blogger ( Dita take a bow) I thought what the hell I don't have enough cray cray in my life. This book is a cup full of cray and then some. Dark, twisted, weird.

What happens when you spend too much time on social media and not enough time interacting with humans? Hmm well perhaps we should take a look. Camilla Brown has not had an easy year. She is coping with a horrific car accident that claimed her husband's life and left her with some serious injuries

The two things that annoy me most in books are dumb reasons for not calling the cops, and non-sensical plot twists trying to "out-thrill" the last one. Like, Follow, Kill checks both of these off.

Despite some flaws, I actually found this book quite enjoyable until the last 15% where you discover what really happened to Valerie, and then the author takes us on a plot-twist rollercoaster where things are just getting thrown at you. That's where LFK got downgraded from "pretty enjoyable" to

What did I just read? That was nuts. It takes a while to get used to the writing style which is all over the place, just like the main characters brain. It is a really quick, fast paced read and will have you sucked in pretty quickly. As the story continues it does start to get a bit over the top and unbelievable which is where it lost me. It was a great plot, but I was hoping for more.

As readers will know that I have read to date every single book by Carissa Ann Lynch. I am a big fan of her mystery novels. So when I saw on Netgalley that she had a new one out, I knew instantly that I wanted to read it and the fact that lately I have been on a mystery buzz in between my other books just to break up the feeling of reading the same trope. Another reason I was excited about this book is that it uses social media which is one of my favorite tropes in books - the use of Social Medi

After Camilla’s accident, she secluded herself, blaming herself for killing her fiancé. To pass the days, she stays on social media, living vicariously through a girl she had met in middle school named Valerie. When Valerie’s social media posts take a dark turn, Camilla sets out on an ill-fated trip to rescue her. However, Camilla has more reasons than one for wanting to seek out Valerie.

There was not a single bad thing to say about this book.

While at first Camilla is a c

First things first...this is one whacked out piece of literature.

But it's fun...soooo much fun.

I've thought about this, and I don't want to give anything away...so I'm just going to suggest giving this book a shot. It's well worth your time, and compulsively readable. Had the final 10% of the book been a bit more believable, I would have given this 4 stars.

3.5 stars rounded down

**Many thanks to the publisher for my advanced copy, given in exchange for my candid review.

Like, Follow, Kill by Carissa Ann Lynch lured me in immediately and did not disappoint. This is a fast-paced read that I devoured in a single sitting. I simply could not put it down. Full of twists and turns, this one delivers in spades.

Camilla Brown has lost her husband in a car accident that has also left her badly disfigured. Holed up in her apartment, and withdrawn from the outside world, Camilla fills her days by following the online presence of an old school friend. When she wi

I practically read this book in one sitting and mainly because I just couldn’t put it down, I needed to know just what the hell was real and what wasn’t but mainly I needed to know how it was all going to end as my goodness it was such a weird and twisted story !!
It’s the kind of book that creeps into your head and just won’t let go and very hard to describe and don’t you just love that kind of read. So as I read the last few pages I had a big satisfied smile on my face as yep this was a r

If you want madness you found it!
Folks, I wish I could put into words how damn crazy this is but stalking is not my thing but perhaps we could learn a thing or two about it from our main gal.
Camilla Brown is badly injured both internally and externally from an accident that left her husband dead.
Problem is her internal scars run deep and are not as visible as the outer physical scars upon her face.
What many don't realize is she's now a loner and seeking a bit of excitemen

Camilla Brown's scars run deep,both mentally and physically. She was badly scarred in a accident that resulted in the death of her husband,Chris. She is a virtual recluse,who is addicted to drink and pills and whose only friendships are the people whose picture perfect lives she follows on-line.

One person she especially loves following is a girl who used to go to her school. Camilla is obsessed with Valerie Hutchen`s posts,her sickening joy for life and her horribly beautiful face. B

Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my GOOOOOODDDDDDDDDD.

I do NOT have the words to describe how I'm feeling about this book. Holy. Fuck.

After the horrific car accident that killed her husband, Camilla doesn't leave her home. Her only interactions with other human beings are when her sister messages her and when she looks through --stalks-- her former high school acquaintance, Valerie, on Instagram. But one night, Valerie posts a cryptic video seemingly in danger. And Camilla is the

I did enjoy this book. The main character, Camilla, was in a car accident with her husband. He dies. She lives and has had 10 surgeries and still has scars - some facial, at that. Camilla had been drunk driving at the time and feels awful and raw about losing her husband. She has become a bit of a hermit - except for visits from her sister, Hannah, and doctor visits.

Camille is so lonely that she has become obsessed with a high school friend's (Valerie's) ongoing internet pics and sto

I must admit that when i first started reading this book, i had my doubts as to whether i was going to enjoy. Mainly because i don't normally like stories that are told in the first person. Turned out to be a very enjoyable read, with plenty of twists and turns. I hope to read more books by this author.

My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers for my copy.

Like Follow Kill is one cracker of a read! It is dark, twisted and is extremely enjoyable! I loved every word of it. I could not have been more intrigued after reading the blurb and had no idea of how much of a wild ride I would be taken on! There are so many twists and turns in this story, that I felt like I was on a never ending rollercoaster and I was still reeling when I was able to get off once the book had finished.

I’ve been Carissa Lynch’s fan ever since she began writing and what I love the most about her books is that she never ceases to amaze me! This newest creation of hers is very different from the others, even though it’s the same genre; yet, it has such a different vibe that no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t understand where it was going until the very end. It’s written using an unreliable protagonist technique, which is my favorite for I never know whether to trust such a protagonist or not, ...more

What a great thrill and suspense it was to read. What a great psychological thrill! This novel had everything in it. The thrill, the suspense, the psychological, and the twist is crazy.

Valerie Hutchens was that horribly perfect girl in middle school, the girl everyone fawned over. Camilla watched her from afar. She never had that kind of charisma.

Many years later, Camilla is disfigured by the car accident that left her husband dead. Traumatized and afraid of showing her scarred face to the world, Camilla isolates herself, spending her days staring wistfully at Valerie's Instagram account. Valerie is a pharmaceutical rep now, photographing herself all over the country for her

I think if I was to sum up this book in one word it would be weird. At the same time it was really compelling. I knew things weren't what they seemed and that the end would be unexpected. Unfortunately I found the end to be a real anticlimax and was left disappointed. I have read this author's work before and enjoyed it so this book hasn't put me off trying her again but if this had been my first experience of her writing I wouldn't bother with her again.

Like, Follow, Kill is a dark and twisted read. From beginning to end, I was captivated and needed to know what would happen next. I did not put this down once! Who needs sleep? The story is chilling and at times disturbing. LOVED it! Totally my kind of read. These characters are well written and helped give life to the story. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and it won’t be my last. I give this 5 stars.
Tarrah Marie (Wayward Readers)
From the prologue until the very last page, Carissa Ann Lynch kept me glued to the pages. Her writing style, imagery, and original flow of words was utterly captivating. The narrative is unique and full of that eerie, understated motive books of this genre need. Absolutely one of the top reads of 2019. 5 stars!!

Thank you to #NetGalley for this ARC of #LikeFollowKill, which was read and reviewed voluntarily. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Well, this wasn’t what I was expecting. First of all— when I read about the MC having an obsession that was consuming her, for some reason I truly believed it had to be a romantic interest. Then, as I read the first few pages about her ex, I assumed it had to be a guy. And I was wrong.

The transparency of the author straight away is respectable and unreserved, which I appreciated. I think the best story puts most things right up front. If I know everything about Camilla, for the most part, and I

Masterfully written thriller with plenty of twists that will keep you up late at night trying to finish it while at the same time wanting it to not be done. Being inside the main character's, Camilla, head while she is on this adventure is quite interesting and makes you question what is really going on in her life. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book via NetGalley..

Was there one person I liked in this book? Well, yes, there was one. Lincoln, the librarian. Camilla, the main character? She was just....in a bad place from chapter one.
After a horrific accident, where Camilla is severely hurt and her husband Chris died, the only things helping Camilla through the day are her pain pills and the stories she follows on Instagram. Specifically the stories her high school friend Valerie posts regularly. Then one night Valerie goes missing and reaches out to Camill

Besides my family, my greatest love in life is books. Reading them, writing them, holding them, smelling them…well, you get the idea. I’ve always loved to read, and some of my earliest childhood memories are me, tucked away in my room, lost in a good book. I received a five dollar allowance each week, and I always — always — spent it on books. My love affair with writing started early, but it most ...more
