Review: The Wife Upstairs

The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins

The last few thrillers I’ve read have been 🥱😴 so I’ll admit I was a little hesitant to start The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins. I like my thrillers to be fast, thoughtless page-turners that keep me entertained, but are quick to get through. I don’t want to think about who might have done what, or for the twist to be super obvious; I just want to power read and be satisfied at the end of it. And friends, that’s exactly how I felt with this one 🙌

Review: How a Woman Becomes a Lake

How a Woman Becomes a Lake

I’ve seen How a Woman Becomes a Lake by Marjorie Celona listed as a thriller in a few different places, and went into this book expecting a wild ride. However, what I read wasn’t what I was prepared for at all. Instead of a story full of twists and turns, I found a beautifully written mystery about how the lives of a handful of characters unfortunately crossed.

Review: Some Kind of Animal

Some Kind of Animal by Maria Romasco Moore

“She was here, in the daylight. She is breaking all her own rules. She is going to finish what she started.”

Friends, I did it: I finally read a book that takes place in the woods that didn’t scare my pants off! Sure, it made me uncomfortable at times, but it didn’t give me nightmares (yet). Instead, Some Kind of Animal by Maria Romasco Moore used a creepy setting to create thriller centered around the love two twin sisters have for each other.

Review: Half Life

Half Life by Lillian Clark

If you had the option to clone yourself, would you? I know, it sounds wild, but having two versions of yourself means you could do and be so much more, right? Well, that’s what Lucille Harper, the main character in Half Life by Lillian Clark, thinks. But what we want isn’t always what we get.

Review: The Girl from Widow Hills

The Girl from Widow Hills by Megan Miranda

For the past few years I’ve eagerly awaited the start of summer because with it comes so many new thrillers!

It’s the fourth book by this author I’ve read, and I was so excited to see what it was about.

Review: The Split

The Split by Sharon Bolton

“An alarm sounds on her phone, letting her know that life doesn’t stop, even when it’s on the brink of ending. She turns to walk back, knowing that she’s running out of places to hide. The ends of the Earth. That’s how far she ran this time. Not far enough.”

When I first read the synopsis for The Split by Sharon Bolton, I was hooked: a young glaciologist takes a job in Antarctica to escape a troubled past that is maybe, somehow, finally catching up with her? Yes please! The setting alone was enough to make me want to read this one, not to mention the glowing reviews already online for this title. While I guessed part of the plot twist early on, I was still invested enough in the story as a whole to see it through to the end.

Review: Darling Rose Gold

Darling Rose Gold
“They say a grudge is a heavy thing to carry. Good thing we’re extra strong.”

If you thought your relationship with your mother was strained, wait until you read Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel. All I knew going into this book was that it’s a psychological thriller, and that information alone did not prepare me for what I just read. This book was nuts, and I loved every minute of it.
