You by Caroline Kepnes ~ Fiction Book Review

You: A Novel by [Kepnes, Caroline]Um . . . so that just happened. Interesting. In the beginning, I thought it was addicting, but at times it became a bit much. I needed some space. This one was an interesting journey, definitely fresh, and I’m glad I read it. I think.

It’s hard to comment without giving anything away. It’s also hard to pinpoint what kind of readers to recommend this to. I’d classify it as a psychological thriller, heavy on the psycho. It was hard to put down in a sick, can’t look away from the mess type of way, so if you’re feeling adventurous, give this one a try. 4.5 stars!

I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh ~ Fiction Book Review

23125266This book had been on my wishlist for a while, so when it was featured as a Kindle deal at an awesomely discounted price, I couldn’t resist. It’s another book where I went in cold – I knew only that many of my Goodreads friends really enjoyed it. (If you haven’t already, add me on Goodreads, I want to see what you’re reading!)

Let me begin by saying that this book is an emotional roller coaster. And just because you think you know what’s going on, doesn’t mean you do. The plot twist at the end of part one caught me completely by surprise, as in totally blindsided – not only did I not see it coming, the option never even crossed my mind. I love love LOVE when that happens, but it doesn’t happen nearly often enough.

From that point, in part 2, the book takes a much more sinister turn. A dark, uncomfortable, I don’t want to be on this road alone at night bend that makes you consider certain characters and their actions in an entirely different light. I really had a hard time not giving spoilers away in this review, but I’d hate to rob other readers of that breathless, hit hard feeling. This is a debut novel by what promises to be a formidable author! Five stars!
