The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

OMG, this book was so good. A lot of twist and turns, mystery, abuse and family drama. If you like thrillers you can’t miss that book. Good job Lisa Jewell!!

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.

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.

Wolfhunter River by Rachel Caine

Third book in the Stillhouse Lake series. In my opinion first one was the best, this one is too chaotic for me. Some connections make no sense, some situations make no sense, too much of everything. I finished it because I like Gwen Proctor, she is smart and very protective. Rachel Caine knows how to write not boring thrillers. Definitely it was fast and easy reading.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Ok Mrs. Evelyn Hugo – you are boring. I mean don’t get me wrong, beginning of your life wasn’t so bad, you got my attention there but after second husband you lost my interest. It was just same old crap, fame and money, money and fame. Thank god you made up on the end 🙂

This was my first book by this author so now I am scared that I won’t like Daisy Jones & The Six. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is loaded with a lot of gossips that we are already used to hear about Hollywood stars. I guess this book is not for me, but I understand why so many people liked it.

However the dress on the cover ……:))))) love it!

Spark by Patricia Leavy

“Someday is always in the distance. Someday is dangerous. Be careful of someday.”

I am so glad that I read this novel. It is short but very inspiring. Doesn’t matter what field you are in; the book will affect you. Beside learning a lot of life lessons, I was on the edge till the end like in a good crime book 🙂


Unraveling by Karen Lord

I am not going to lie but I don’t know the author, so I picked this book only by looking at the cover page which seemed to me very intriguing. It’s a big maze with an eye in the middle. The main characters Dr. Miranda Ecouvo and two brothers Chance and Trickster have to go through the maze and solve complicated puzzles in order to catch a killer or rather confirmed that Walther Grey, Butcher of the City killed and mutilated 7 victims. I couldn’t get into the book on the beginning but when I did I couldn’t stop. It’s difficult reading and needs a lot of attention because scenes change very quickly but it’s rewarding on the end. There is a lot of characters throughout the book so if someone likes challenging reading I recommend this one :).
