Book Obsessed Introverts

Where I Left Her | Amber Garza  | MIRA Books | Pub : August 24, 2021 |  Pages : 400  I hate to say it ...but this book was not as good as I expected. Firstly, it was very slow-paced, but that wasn’t my main issue with the book. I just truly could not relate to the main character, Whitney. She is way too obsessed with her daughter and it was driving me nuts! I started to understand why Amelia might have run away from her mom because talk about a helicopter mom, jeez. Since 60% of the book revolves around Whitney and her search for Amelia, I really started to hate Whitney. I just could not relate with her at all, and her ideologies just don't mesh with mine. If it would have been a small part of the book, I could have gotten over it. Having said that though, the redeeming quality of this book was the ending! I’m happy I finished this book because the ending was pretty good. It was kind of predictable, but I really liked it since I was finally able to understand why Whitney was...
The Angel Creek Girls | Leslie Wolfe | Bookouture | Pub : August 19, 2021 |  Pages : 352 This is Book #3 of the Detective Kay Sharp series. This could be read as a standalone as there are no spoilers about the other books, but I recommend starting at Book #1. I really devoured the other two books but I gotta say, this one wasn’t my favorite. Maybe it was just my mindset while reading but I felt like it was slow-burning suspense and it took a while for the action to pick up. Overall, this was a very intriguing mystery, with many twists and turns! There were a couple of different POVs, one of which included the killer's POV! That always adds a little bit more suspense in my opinion! The last thing I was lacking was the character relationship development between Kay and Elliot. I need more than just hinting that they are into each other! Give me some steamy romance scenes! I know a lot of people don't like romantic suspense but I feel like the book is insinuating towards that...
Such a Good Wife | Seraphina Nova Glass | Graydon House Books | Pub : August 10, 2021  | Pages : 336 This book starts off extremely captivating as it describes the main character discovering a dead body. However, after that short chapter, the story development is very slow, yet rushed in a sense. For example, I personally found the development affair portion of the story was rushed or didn’t contain enough depth for me to really be invested. I just found it was sort of glazed over. There were quick sex scenes and narrative around the main character’s feelings, but I was missing something on that relationship. The story was told in a first-person POV, narrated by Melanie Hale, the main character. I did enjoy that single POV as it made the story more mysterious. I did like Melanie’s character, the writing really highlighted the fact that Melanie had lots to deal with at home and was truly exhausted, worried, and unfulfilled, so you could definitely sympathize with her character. Th...
Your Truth or Mine? |  Trisha Sakhlecha | Macmillan |  Pub : June 13, 2019 | Pages : 448 This was a pretty great read! The story grabbed me right away and my curiosity was piqued all throughout the book. I usually I’m invested in the main characters, but in this case, I didn’t really like them, or grow any affection towards them. The story was told in both Mia’s and Roy’s POV, so it was hard to decern who I liked better, or who was telling the truth, but isn’t that the beauty of a good psychological thriller?! There was quite a bit of twists and turns and was quite an entertaining and engaging read! Considering this is the author’s first novel, Trisha did a great job! I have definitely added Can you See Me Now to my ever-growing TBR! Thank you to Pan Macmillan for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions. Synopsis Your Truth or Mine? is about the dark secrets couples keep from one another and how...
