Hey guys! I absolutely smashed it again this month. Don’t ask me how but I managed to read 10 books and 1 comic. I never read this many books in one month but lately I have been flying through my TBR! All the books I read were crime thrillers which were all vastly different from one another. I seem to be in a crime mood lately and I’m loving it! Here’s what I read in April:
The Puppet Show by M.W. Craven: This is the first book in a series and I don’t think I will be reading the second one. My favourite thing about this was the gruesome plot. It was absolutely horrifying as people were literally being burned alive at a stake and to make it even more chilling, it was all happening in prehistoric stone circles. Talk about unsettling! Sadly what let this book down was the characters. They were not likeable at all and they didn’t feel fully fleshed out. It felt like they were all missing something but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what it was. I also didn’t like the writing that much — it just wasn’t pulling me. I didn’t find the story engaging at all; I could have easily put the book down and not picked it back up. After hearing everyone raving about this I was sadly left feeling disappointed.
Lies by T.M. Logan: T.M. Logan has easily shot to the top of my list for authors to watch out for. We’ve all made split-second decisions and not really considered the consequences because usually it pays off. But what if it didn’t? What if your decision actually had dire consequences and your life is thrown into crisis? This is the situation Joe finds himself in after defending his wife from a family friend. From this moment on, his life will never be the same and he is forced to question whether he can really trust those closest to him. I loved this book so much! It was such a creepy and unsettling thriller, full of so many jaw-dropping twists! I was on the edge of my seat throughout and I didn’t see the ending coming at all.
