Reading the premise for this book I was thrilled to get started! Hoping I would have yet another diabolical, dark thriller to keep me up burning the midnight oil! Some of these new thrillers with ties to social media can be absolutely terrifying! (Maybe, because the potential for trouble seems so very real).

Camilla Brown has purposely distanced herself away from family and friends following the death of her husband. Everyone blames her. Ouch! Rarely showing herself in public, her life revolv

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

Chock Full o’ Nuts and Then Some!

Badly scarred after a car accident that killed her husband, Camilla Brown has been hiding out in her apartment for months. Nothing will make her step foot out the door, till a plea for help raises the alarm.

Valerie is an Instagram Influencer. Nary a moment goes by without her posting about her life, which is stalked by everyone, including former classmate Camilla. When Camilla strikes up a friendship by dm, who is Valerie to say no, especially when it’s

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 just "o

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.

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 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.

Reading this book is like taking a roller coaster ride through the fever dream of an insane alcoholic.
Do you like weird? Do you like crazy? Are you ingesting too much cough syrup at the moment?
Then do yourself a favor and READ THIS BOOK!

After loving My Sister Is Missing, I was extremely excited to read the newest book from Carissa. She sent me a signed copy of Like Follow Kill in exchange for my honest review.

I want to preface my review by saying this has one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen on a book. This cover is fascinating, yet gives you a sinister kinda vibe with a creepy feeling with chills up and down your spine.

This book was amazing. I love Carissa's writing. She writes fantastic thrillers with twists and

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.

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 witnesses some

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 real go

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 excitement from a 'jealousy' stan

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. But then Cami

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 only one who can help h

Disturbing, chilling, and featuring a damaged, obsessed heroine, LIKE, FOLLOW, KILL delves into the darkest side of social media and its influence on vulnerable people. It was hard to step away from this fast-paced read because I was desperate to uncover all of the twists and turns, which lead to a shocking ending. A very compelling suspense. I received an advanced reader copy.

I thought this book was going to be great when it first started. Inwas really enjoying it. Then the ending just fell flat, it was done very quickly and didn't live up to the hype of the rest. I expected something nitty gritty but it just fell flat.

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.

So I'm in two minds about this one and after thinking about it all day, I've decided to bump my rating down to three stars instead of the original four that I gave it.

The synopsis sounded amazing for this and I was hooked instantly when I started reading. I enjoyed the plot and the mystery... until I was about 83% of the way through. From 83% onwards, the plot just kind of spiraled for me and that ruined it. I thought it was a tad ridiculous and a little bit rushed.

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 stories. Actual

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 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.

This was a crazy thrill ride of a book! I find books related to social media quite interesting. Camilla is deeply scarred both physically and mentally following a wreck she caused that killed her husband Chris. Camilla rarely leaves her tiny apartment and is always drinking and abusing her prescribed medication. She's your classic unreliable narrator. She's a bit obsessed with watching the instagram feed of Valerie Hutchins, a girl she barely knew from middle school and high school days. Valerie ...more

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
