Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben
Fool Me Once

Interesting. I kinda liked this, I think, but perhaps it wasn't the best choice for my first Harlan Coben(?)

Coben has long been on a mental list of mine - along with Koontz, Child, Grisham, James Patterson and Connelly - of well-loved mystery/thrille

Secrets, like memories, do not disappear just because they are buried by snow or time or distance.

What an ugly, awful little book. I thought it was pretty awesome, too, but then I’m a fan of Arnold’s dark twisted feminist stories that most other pe

Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott
Give Me Your Hand
by Megan Abbott (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
The fear all men have that there’s something inside us that shifts, and turns. A living thing, once dormant, stirring now, and filled with rage.

Not quite as good as You Will Know Me, in my opinion, but still another great example of why Megan Abbot

The Outsider by Stephen King
The Outsider

There was one rock-hard fact, as unassailable as gravity: a man could not be in two places at the same time.

Stephen King amazes me. Here, he has managed to turn a 300-page story into a 560-page story by leading us on a long-winded wild goose chase

There There by Tommy Orange

"Don't ever let anyone tell you what being Indian means. Too many of us died to get just a little bit of us here, right now, right in this kitchen."

Orange's ambitious debut captures the experience of modern "urban Indians" through constantly shifti

Florida by Lauren Groff
Florida

The truth might be moral, but it isn't always right.

Snakes, gators, swamps and storms form the backdrop of these exquisitely human stories.

I have to say I enjoyed Florida so much more than Fates and Furies. Groff's writing style is dense and wordy,

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-"
"I took the one back to you."

I really wish this wasn't the case but, at this point, I think I’ve just read a few too many YA Contemporaries that do the same things and pull out the same twists as See All the St

“Disrupt stability. Petition for gold. Provoke the greatest empire on the face of the earth.” He paused. “This is going to be fun.”

Oh, it was. So much bloody, nasty fun.

I have really loved this series. I mean, why wouldn't I? There's a murderous an

Because that's what the story is really about: getting out of paying your debts.

There is just something about Novik's fairy tales. Something magical, atmospheric and utterly charming. I didn't like Spinning Silver quite as much as my beloved Uproot

That's the difference between the real and the virtual. Reality is where you can lose the ones you love. Reality is the place where you can feel the cracks in your heart.
