Winter Book Review

Hi Friends,

Recent, I have been reading so many good books. I would be doing you all an injustice by not sharing with you these books. Just a little background on the type of books I like to read, I love a good thriller. Anything that has me reading with my mouth agape, that means I am sold. Typically, I like to read self help and christian living books, until I discovered “Gone Girl” after that I was hooked. I even got my husband hooked too, he is more of an Audible type of guy, but at least the interest is there 🙂 Here are the books I have read over the holiday season, and couldn’t put down. I will try my best not to give any spoilers, but read with caution 🙂

This book was a hot mess. We have this amazing couple that seem to be perfect. Until we really see what is going on in their marriage. The husband is UBER controlling, mostly because he is a psycho. I like the way the story unfolded, at first you think you are about to go on this amazing journey of a love story with a perfect couple <insert heart eye emoji> until you realize the husband is a crazy sick man. I love how the main character is so dedicated to getting out of this situation. She get’s the oscar for best actress, because she got him good!

Call me crazy but a lot of times, I like to see how the title fits in with the story. I didn’t get why this was called the couple next door, because there was a couple next door (two technically) but I never grasped which one was more crazy. It’s okay, because the book was crazy twisted regardless of the title. Here we a have a wife who is suffering for post-pardom depression after having their first child. The husband may or may not be having inappropriate moments with the hot wife next door. Then the baby goes missing and it seems like everyone is involved. There is a ransom, but the freaky next door neighbors blackmail the other couple next door because they like to film private moments. In my opinion the wife needed to get a backbone, I understand she is sick, BUT YOUR CHILD IS MISSING! The husband was the biggest mess if ever, he was such a jerk and your typical pig!

This was a great story, it was a little slow, but it captured me enough to want to know how everything turned out. The story starts out with a girl who was robbed in her apartment. Then she goes on a cruse to find that someone was thrown overboard and left for dead. After attempting to alert the authorities on the cruise. She starts getting threats telling her to leave it alone. Of course she does not, then she goes missing after that everything is revealed and we realize we live in a really sick world. As the story ends, we find out so many twists, I kept saying… really.

This was a good one I couldn’t put it down. I love a book with a great twist!!! So, the main character is a teacher and she comes form money but her father cut her off because he wanted her to be a lawyer like him. The man (who in my mind was really attractive) abducts her and hold her hostage for a few months. They fall in love and then all the crazy comes out. She is sick in the head and so is he. Oh so is her father.

I tried my hardest not to give any spoilers but I hope if you have the reading bug like I do, you will find some of these books to your liking. They were all great page turners… let me know what books you are reading now, what do you recommend?
