Hey guys! I’m actually combining my wrap up and my book haul posts because this month has been such an awful reading month! I thought it was bad that I only read three books last month but this month I only read one. One freaking book! I have been in such a horrible slump that I only recently got out of and I was so annoyed because I wanted to read but I just couldn’t. I am really hoping I will be back to reading five books in November! It’s annoying because my goal is to read fifty books this year and so far I have read thirty four so I really could have done with reading another five books this month. I’m not sure if I will make fifty but I’m going to damn well try!
The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
This book really helped me get out of my slump because it was such an easy read! It’s about a couple who leaves their six month daughter home alone while they go to a party next door. They agree to check on her every half an hour but when they check on her in the early hours of the morning, she is gone from her cot. She has been taken and they are left with no choice but to call the police and who knows what secrets they will uncover…
It was very interesting and full of so many exciting twists and turns. At first I thought it revealed the plot really early but it turns out there were more secrets to uncover and I honestly couldn’t put this book down. The ending was left on such a horrible cliffhanger though and I really hope there is a second book because I don’t think I can live with that cliffhanger in my life, I need answers.
I would highly recommend this book if you are into crime thrillers and mysteries.
