Look What You Made Me Do by Elaine Murphy

Look What You Made Me DoLook What You Made Me Do by Elaine Murphy
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This one started off super strong, but sadly it was just not for me. I wanted to DNF a few times, but just was waiting for something to grab my attention back into the story. It was a little to slow at times and I was just not a fan.

Bye, Baby by Carola Lovering

Bye, BabyBye, Baby by Carola Lovering
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

2.5 Stars

Triggers for child sexual assault, Alzheimer's, mental health, and more.

This started off pretty strong, but then slows down. It is told in different parts and was way longer than it needed to be. I almost DNF several times, but something in the story kept me going.

I would not say this is a mystery/thriller. This is more fiction to me.

Overall, this was just ok but was not what I was expecting.

I was provided an early copy to the audiobook for review.

The Teacher by Freida McFadden

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars

Triggers for child grooming. This book gave me My Dark Vanessa vibes. I do not really get thriller/mystery with this one.

This is one that is not going to be for everyone. It was over the top at times as well as has more plot holes than I normally find with her stories. The final twist was not something I saw coming though.

Again, do I recommend this? Maybe? I still enjoyed the fast paced story regardless.

What do you do when you are in a slump and cannot seem to get into anything? Pick up something from my go to author!

Triggers for mental health and infertility.

This was fast paced and brought out several different emotions for me. I was getting upset for our main character the more things started to happen. Was some of this predictable? Yes! But did I still enjoy it? Yes.

Overall, still helped me get out of my slump!

Finding Felicity by Stacey Kade

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This has been on my TBR for years. I was excited to finally grab the audio on Libby. I was a huge Felicity fan when I was younger and actually re-watched the whole show again a few years ago.

If you love Felicity, I think you will enjoy this for that aspect alone. It is a little fan fiction with a new story thrown in. It was super cute, but was not anything that blew me away.

Lies She Told by Cate Holahan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There was something about the story that just pulled me in. Both parts had you guessing and questioning what was going to happen. Even though there were no surprising twists, it still kept my interest. It did get a little slower in the middle, but overall was a great read.
