The Girl On The Train

Let me just get my thoughts together for a second.

If you have read this book then you know how great of a twist this book is. Starting out I just thought I knew what was happening. My assumption was so wrong and i did not put it together until almost the end. Paula Hawkins gives us a Gone Girl feel throughout this book. There was love, scandal, infidelity, violence and all things good spread out in these pages.

I felt sorry for Rachel as she talks about her marriage ending with Tom and having lost her job and everything that came along with finding out she could not conceive children. At one point I had convinced myself that she was the one who was behind the plot of the story. I was a little angry with her and decisions to always result to alcohol, but somewhere along the line she shows the need/want to be sober. I loved the way that each character was written with a secret, it kept it interesting to say the least.

In the last few chapters, Paula gives us a big plot twist, one that I did not in anyway see coming. I was mouth dropped, eyes wide by the last page.

Such a good read, I totally recommend it. I would give this book a 4/5

Until next time, until the next book…

All The Missing Girls

23212667.jpg

So I just finished this amazing book by Megan Miranda. This is the first time I have actually read through an E-book, because I prefer the physical book. This is also my first time reading a book and doing a review from my Netgalley account.

 

All The Missing Girls, started with secrets and ended with even more secrets. I really enjoyed how the story unfolded. The story itself was told in reverse, so you have to truly be paying attention to follow what is happening throughout the book. This book pulls you in and it does not let you go. I can often read several books at one time, but I had to devote my attention solely to this novel.

Just when you think you know who is behind the disappearances of the two women, Megan throws a totally new slew of clues that makes you realize that you are so wrong. From the moment that Nic is introduced and is needed back home, you get the feeling that she may not come back. The unfinished business that she has with Cooley Ridge begins to grow and as much as you want her to be of total innocent, her truths, her secrets begin to tie everything together for you.

I do not want to do a spoiler review, so I will leave you with this. If you have not picked this book up, please do yourself a favor and give it a read. With a Gone Girl feel, Megan leaves you at the end of the book with eyes wide and mouth opened. I enjoyed this book from start to finish.

 

I give this book a 5/5.

 

Until next time, until the next book..
