Camino Island Review

Is there a popular author that you used to read but over time found your self reading less and less often? For me John Grisham is one, in the beginning I had to read his latest as soon as it came out and then after a while, for whatever reason I didn’t. But someone told me to give his latest book, Camino Island, a try because it was about books and I am glad I did.

Lying Game Book Review

Ruth Ware writes books that hook you at the first page and even when you think you have it figured out there is a twist that throws you off. Her latest novel , The Lying Game, attempts to do the same.

When do lies become the truth? For 17 years school friends Isa, Fatima, and Thea have been covering up a major lie to protect their friend Kate but now things are starting to unravel. A body has been discovered and Kate begs them to come. But is Kate telling them the truth and are their memories true or more lies? A story of family, friendship, loyalty, and finding the truth hidden in years of lies.

While this is an intriguing story with much going for it I was not as enthralled as I was with her first 2 book (In A Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10). Don’t get me wrong, it is an enjoyable book and I recommend it, I just prefer her earlier books more.

The Breakdown Book Review

The Breakdown by B.A. Paris is published today and I was so excited to read it!! I really enjoyed her 1st book, Behind Closed Doors, and had high hopes for this book. Maybe that was the problem, my high hopes, because I didn’t connect as much with this book. Don’t get me wrong, it was still good, and disturbing, and enjoyable but I wanted just a bit more. Do you ever do that? Pin impossible expectations to a book? Give this one a try and let me know if it was just my impossible expectations.
