Thanks to vacation I have two more book reviews for ya!
Author: Jessica Knoll
Genre: Thriller & Suspense
Back Cover Summary: As a teenager at the prestigious Bradley School, Ani FaNelli endured a shocking, public humiliation that left her desperate to reinvent herself. Now, with a glamorous job, expensive wardrobe, and handsome blue blood fiancé, she’s this close to living the perfect life she’s worked so hard to achieve.
Amazon Rating: 3.5 stars
My Review: I had high hopes for this book after so many of you raved about it. I read the entire book but didn’t love the story line or plot twists. I am an impatient reader so when the story hadn’t unfolded by the middle of the book, I got frustrated. This book is more of a dark chic lit novel than thriller suspense.
Author: Ruth Ware
Genre: Thriller & Suspense
Back Cover Summary: Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just
been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with
only a handful of cabins. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant:
the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests
are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray
skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and
terrifying nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All
passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing
has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something
(or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong…
Amazon Rating: 4 Stars
My Rating: I really liked this book and found the plot intriguing! I read it in 3 days. A good “who done it” book, I kept trying to figure out who the killer was up to the end.
I honestly feel better reading your review because so many people I knew loved Luckiest Girl Alive and I read it and was like "… Am I missing something here?" I was not impressed.
Caley-Jade Rosenberg says
Oh no, Luckiest Girl Alive was next on my list but I may skip it now… I also loved The Woman in Cabin 10 (and I spent ages trying to guess who!) x
Anna-Grace Pryor says
Just finished The Wife Between Us. SO GOOD!! I can't stop recommending it.
I was not impressed with Luckiest Girl Alive either….don't know why it gets such glowing reviews. I did enjoy the Girl in Cabin 10 though1
The Lucky Lifestyle says
I meant to say The Woman in Cabin 10 — definitely on the to-read list! And, yes, with you on Luckiest Girl Alive. Eh.
Klein Dot Co says
I totally felt the opposite of everyone! I thought the end of The Woman in Cabin 10 was just thrown together and super far-fetched in the name of finishing the story, but found that Luckiest Girl Alive came to a proper close (but yes, wouldn't put them in the same genre). What are you on to now?
Jessica | Being Bradfords says
I felt the same way about Luckiest Girl Alive. So many people loved it but it wasn't my jam lol
Shoot! Sorry you didn't like Luckiest Girl Alive. I really liked it! And I didn't really enjoy The Woman in Cabin 10. I think it's so cool how different folks like different things. Currently reading "The Kind Worth Killing" – 25% of the way through, and I'm enjoying it thus far! Are you on Goodreads?
