This week I read:
This book was well written, insightful, and at times, poignant. But if I’m being honest, I didn’t really care. This was a good book, but I had to battle my way through it. The plot had me hooked – a plane crashes, and only a single young boy survives. But, while I sympathized for the character who lost his entire family in the crash, I didn’t like him, which made me feel bad. Some of his actions and reactions didn’t ring true. I preferred the scenes without Edward because I felt the author did a better job of letting me know who those characters were. If you’re looking for an emotional character ARC, this one’s for you.
This book is about a podcaster who debarks from her norm of investigating – and solving – cold case murders to covering a rape trial for her third season. While there, a fan who’s case she chose not to pursue baits her with letters about the crime. The scenes shift between her podcast, the courtroom, the letters written to her, and her actions as she investigates the second case when she should be focusing on the first. This book has received All. The. Hype. And while there’s plenty of suspense in this one, I just wasn’t feeling it as strongly as I had hoped. It’s a good book with an engaging story, but it didn’t hit me as intensely as I had anticipated. 4/5 stars.
