Book Obsessed Introverts

And Then You Were Gone | R.J. Jacobs | Crooked Lane Books | Pub : March 13, 2019 | Pages : 288 This was a fantastic quick and easy read! The main character, Emily has been managing her bipolar disorder for years. However, when her boyfriend disappears one night, her disorder management comes into question. Due to this, I was suspicious of unreliable character narration, but R.J. Jacobs did an excellent job at not focusing too much on that aspect and letting the story play out in an interesting, nail-biting fashion! Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop! There were many twists and surprises in this unpredictable thriller! If you lost fast-paced thrillers, this one is for you! Highly recommend. Thank you to Crooked Lane Books for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions. Synopsis After years of learning how to manage her bipolar disorder, Emily Firestone finally has it under control. Even b...
The Girls in the Snow | Stacy Green | Bookouture | Pub : October 19, 2020 | Pages : 347 This is book #1 from the Nikki Hunt Series ! The good news is there are already four books out currently from this series! This book was so very close to being a 5 star, but the pace of the story was just way too slow for me. I’m a big fan of book series and I’m very excited to keep reading more Nikki Hunt books! I really ended up loving the characters, and I’m very curious what will happen now. There’s still a lot more to the story left to tell and can’t wait to see what direction it will take! Especially about Nikki’s possible new relationship! Bonus points too – the story was very unpredictable! I did not see the ending coming and loved that there was a conclusion to the two main storylines! I’m super excited to be reading the next books in this series! If you love police procedurals, with lots of character development, you will love this book! Synopsis In the remote forests of Stillwa...
Reminders of Him | Colleen Hoover | Montlake | Pub : January 18, 2022 | Pages : 335 This deserves more than 5-stars! I’m speechless… Colleen has outdone herself! The story was beautiful - even though it was sort of messy and dramatic, it was so beautiful and heartfelt. I would say this is a story about love and redemption. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! I think this might be my all-time favorite Colleen Hoover book. It made me feel ALL the emotions. This was 100% me at the end of the book. I loved the characters so much; I wish this would become a series. This might be one of my favorite Colleen Hoover books. I highly recommend this book and/or any other CoHo books! I 100% have a book hangover now…and now I have to wait a year for another Colleen Hoover Book?! Synopsis After serving five years in prison for a tragic mistake, Kenna Rowan returns to the town where it all went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter. But the bridges Kenna burne...
Where the Missing Go | Emma Rowley | Kensington Publishing | Pub : April 30, 2019 | Pages : 304 I usually steer clear of books about missing girls/women, I usually find them dry, slow and boring, but I LOVED this one! It’s about a mother that will not give up on finding her missing child! It’s been two years, but she will not give up, she knows her child is out there somewhere. This book was 100% unpredictable, I for sure had it all mapped out in my mind about what happened or who was involved, etc. but boy was I wrong. This story is full of misdirection, full of action and full of twists! The ending definitely had me….. Highly recommend this book! You won’t be disappointed. Thank you to Kensington Books for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions. Synopsis The missing don't always want to be found. Kate Harlow recognizes this painful truth, even as she keeps searching for he...
The Murder Book | Lissa Marie Redmond | Midnight Ink | Pub : February 8, 2019 | Pages : 304 This book got my attention right from the very first chapter!! Trust me, you will get sucked in! This is a typical police procedural, where the two main detectives are Lauren and Reese, two cold case detectives. I absolutely loved the relationship between Lauren and Reese. It’s complete platonic, at this point, but the way they interact as partners and are always there for each other, love love love! I will be reading the rest of the series, because YES it’s a series people! There are already 5 books. I’m behind. This was a pretty short read, full of action and full of twists! I’m definitely a Lissa Marie Redmond fan now! BONUS : She is a retired cold-case homicide detective! This really adds an extra layer to the book! Thank you to Midnight Ink for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions. Synopsi...
The Getaway | Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen | Audible Original |  Pub :  April 30, 2020|  Lenght : 2 hours, 24 mins I loved all of Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen’s previous books, so I had to give this one a try! This is an audible exclusive novella and it’s pretty short! It's a tense thriller with a lot of action. The plot was fantastic, very creepy and suspenseful, despite the fact that it was fairly predictable. It was very well-developed, considering its only 2.5 hours long. The narrator did an excellent job, I was hooked right from the beginning. Highly recommend it if you have Audible! Synopsis Prepare yourself for a transformative experience. Sometimes, life's setbacks contain hidden gifts. Here at Lakewood, you'll find the space to unwrap them. A weekend at the Lakewood Retreat is exactly what Chloe Powell needs. Freshly unemployed after her boss loses a re-election campaign, the former press secretary desperately wants a break from the bustle of ...
The Love Hypothesis | Ali Hazelwood | Berkley Books | Pub : September 14, 2021 | Pages : 352 This was such a cute story! I loved it so much! I needed a palate cleanser after reading Lazarus by Lars Kepler, and this was absolute perfection! The characters were loveable, the plot excellent, the character development superb! I was hooked from the beginning, I ended up reading this book in two days!   I kept smiling at myself while reading this, it was embarrassing! But I adored it so much! However, it took a while for the story to progress to the good parts… The ending was great! I wish this was a series and I could get my Adam & Olive fix in the future! Ali Hazelwood also wrote Chapter 16 – Adam’s POV . You must go and read that as well! The only thing I hated about this book was how Olive put herself down so much! I just wanted her to be confident and not let anyone tell her otherwise! I understand though that was part of her character development in this story. ...
Lazarus  | Lars Kepler | Knopf Publishing | Pub : December 1, 2020 | Pages : 497 Book #7 in the Joona Lina series ! I’m gearing up to read The Mirror Man on January 18, 2022! I said The Rabbit Hunter was by far the most gruesome Lars Kepler book, but I take it back. This one is the most gruesome Lars Kepler Book in the Joona Lina series ! The violence was extremely descriptive and vivid. This one was the most hardcore, darkest and disturbing of the Joona Lina series ! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved the book! I read it in a couple days since I just couldn’t put it aside! I needed to know how everything would pan out! The book was so devastating and didn’t really go in the direction I was hoping for but that is what makes a book so great! I was at the edge of my seat and now that I’m done with this book, I just want more and more of this series! I said it and I’ll say it again, you must read this series, and start with Book #1 , you will not be disappointed! Such ...
The Rabbit Hunter | Lars Kepler | Knopf Publishing Group | Pub : May 3, 2018 | Pages : 528 TW: Rape, animal cruelty Book #6 in the Joona Lina series ! I’ve been on a real Lars Kepler kick lately! I just need to finished Lazarus and The Mirror Man and I’ll be done this series! INSERT LINK Such an amazing book! This series is just top-notch! This wasn’t my favorite in the series, but it was still brilliant! I almost gave this 4.5 stars just because the beginning was quite political, which I didn't care for, but it didn’t’ stay political for very long and it all came together in the end. I’ve mentioned it numerous times, but I’ll mention it again, the duo that is Lars Kepler is just amazingly exceptional writers! Their writing style, which includes so much suspense, drama and atmospheric elements, just keeps you at the edge of your seat the whole time! Even though their books are usually super long, I just can’t stop reading. The short chapter also helps break down the story! Ano...
Stalker | Lars Kepler |  Knopf Doubleday Publishing |  Pub : November 7, 2014|  Pages : 560 Lars Kepler understood the assignment!  I love this book series so damn much! This is Book #5 in the Joona Lina series, and I 100% recommend starting from Book #1, otherwise, you will miss key story points. As per usual, I was hooked from the first chapter and couldn’t stop reading!  Even though the book has an overwhelming number of pages, the short chapters make this book a breeze to read! I really love the main characters of this series, especially Joona and Saga! I hope we see more of Saga in the next one! However, in this one we saw a familiar face as Erik Maria Bark is back! We got introduced to Erik during Book #1, The Hypnotist. I really loved that he was back in the story! I’m invested in these characters and will keep reading this series. The story was a wild ride and the writing excellent! If you want a book that’s unpredictable, atmospheric, dark, compelling and twisted, this one is...
