Girl from the Tree House by Gudrun Frerichs

What an interesting read about person with mental disorder. In Elise case its Dissociative Identity Disorder. She has so many personalities living in her head. Book talks about very difficult problem, that abused people usually developed some mental problems and system instead to help them, threats them like a crazy lunatic. I think the abuser should be locked and filled with tones of medications not other way around. Institutions let down victims of abuse on daily basis. Author did really good job of creating this difficult mind of a struggling person.

The Whisper Man by Alex North

Omg don’t read this book at night! It was scary on the beginning, but it was so good I couldn’t stop reading it. What a page turner till the last paragraph. Missing boys, frightening house, good detectives’ job and concerned father. Just really,  really good crime debut.

I’ll Never Tell by Catherine McKenzie

This story was really good. I felt like it was more Agatha Christie type mystery story. Summer camp, 5 siblings, dead father and his crazy will. Who was guilty of the events from 20 years ago, who did it? I couldn’t put this book down until I knew. Good writing done by Catherine McKenzie.

The Rumor by Lesley Kara

Rumor is so easy to start by some innocent comment or accusation and then it is very hard to stop it to spread out like a landslide.  Joanna didn’t even suspect what could happen by just saying out loud her thoughts. I really enjoyed this psychological thriller about rumor and its consequences. I couldn’t put the book down until I figured out who is the killer :). Good writing and great developed characters.

Degrees of Guilt by HS Chandler

Wow!! What a page turner. Great courtroom drama with twists and turns, very well-developed characters and good writing. Till the end I wasn’t sure what to think and then big shocker. I had goosebumps when I read some of the descriptions. Loved it. I will absolutely read more books by HS Chandler.

The Turn Of The Key by Ruth Ware

I knew that book by Ruth Ware will be good, but I didn’t suspect that it’s going to be sooo good. Creepy, fast pace, twisty and keeping me on the edge from the first to the last page. Hunted house, wired family and one nanny who tries to figure out what is happening around her. Just one day, fantastic read.

April wrap-up!!

21 books!!!! wow, how did I do that? I guess when you read something good pages turn by itself. My favorite were Cress and Scarlet from the Lunar Chronicles series, now I am finishing Winter, but it takes some time, book has 820 pages!! I really enjoyed Little Darlings, The Perfect Wife and Mine. All of them psychological thrillers with a lot of turns and twists. The Outsider was awesome but not surprise here, it is King after all. The Night Before was fast read too. I also read two books by John Marrs which were very interesting. The worst one from this long list of books unfortunately was The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. After 3rdhusband it started to be all the same and boring, more money and more power, thank god the ending was good 🙂 Happy reading in May to all of you 🙂

The Perfect Wife by JP Delaney

After I started to read this psychological thriller, I was nicely surprised. It is about marriage and their problems but in the same time this novel is different than other typical thrillers. I liked Abbie a lot and I also enjoyed reading about her autistic son Danny. Definitely a one day read with twists and turns till the end.

The Night Before by Wendy Walker

Rosie’s sister Laura went for a date with a man that she met online, and she’s never come back home. Rosie, with her husband Joe and best friend Gabe, is desperately trying to track her steps. What happened? Who killed who? Be ready for a crazy ride in this fast spinning roller-coaster. Tension building, page turner psychological thriller that I couldn’t put down until all the secrets reviled. I honestly recommend this book to anybody who likes to sit on the edge of the chair.

Little Darlings by Melanie Golding

Mother’s worst nightmare. Her babies are gone!! What a debut, page turner from the first to the last page. Psychological thriller that I couldn’t stop reading. I can’t believe it that I was actually cheering for a mad woman but was she crazy or not? I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a goose bumps and frightening stories.
