Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Big Little Lies - Liane MoriartyWelcome again to a new book-review for the Twisted Book Club! Last time, I reviewed One of Us is Lyingthis time I’m reviewing Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. YES! You read that right, another Mortiarty book (as promised!). I read the plot actually a long time ago, so I just started reading without actually knowing/remembering what it was about. I only remembered it being about a town where a few women seem to carry secrets about themselves whereas nobody actually knows what they deal with behind closed doors. By far, this is the best book I have read from Moriarty. No lies. I read it within a few days, and I was so excited when I read the ending. I will not leave you hanging, let’s go!  (more…)

One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

Welcome to another book-review for the Twisted Book Club! You can read the previously discussed book The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison. This time I will review One of Us is Lying written by Karen McManus. It is the first book I’ve read written by her. I read the summary, and was pretty excited to read the book. Also, I was very curious as to what could have possible happened during detention. Of course, I was also curious to why someone would want to kill this student. Are you curious too? Read further or start reading the book! Enjoy this review.

The Silent Wife by A.S.A Harrison

The silent wife - book coverWelcome to a new book-review for the Twisted Book Club! Last time, I reviewed Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Haeberlin. This time I read this book called The Silent Wife by A. S. A. Harrison. I read the short summary which described it as a chilling psychological thriller about marriage and how far a wife is willing to go to keep what is rightfully hers. That drew me to it and I actually got excited about it. I’d say keep reading if you want to know more about The Silent Wife.

Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Haeberlin

black-eyed susansFor this Twisted Book Club, I’m reviewing Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Haeberlin. Last time, I reviewed Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven. Black-Eyed Susans was described as a suspenseful book. That is the reason why I really wanted to read the book. Honestly, beginning it was quite boring, however, suspense is built up. The book follows a woman, Tessa, who was kidnapped at the age of 16. There is someone in jail for her kidnapping, however Tessa is now doubting if the person in jail is the one who took her. We follow her as she is being confronted by her past. She has to access the part of her past in order to make sure that the right person is punished. Does this excite you? Let’s get into Tessa’s story!

Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

 Holding Up the Universe - Jenniver NivenHolding Up the Universe written by Jennifer Niven. Holding Up the Universe, is written from two perspectives. On one hand, you have Jack Masselin and on the other hand you have Libby Strout. They are both 16-year olds in Highschool somehwere in America. They have their own struggles and the story pertains mostly to how these two teens navigate through their own personal problems and their life in HS. For example, Libby was once named America’s Fattest Teen and has always been homeschooled, until now. Jack on the other hand is a very popular boy, but he has prosopagnosia, meaning that he cannot remember faces, not even those of his family members. Want to know my opinion? Keep on reading 🙂 (more…)

Welcome again to a new book-review for the Twisted Book Club! You can read my previous review on All the Rage by Courtney Summers. So, I recently read The Year We Turned Forty by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke. I also read The Good Widow by them, which I liked, but then also not because of the ending (eyeroll). However, I really wanted to read something else written by them. Then, I stumbled upon this one and of course: I loved it! The Year We Turned Forty is about Jessie, Gabriela and Claire, three best friends in their late 40’s who get the chance to change the outcome of their lives. Let’s get into this book!

All the Rage by Courtney Summers

all the rage - courtney summersWelcome to a new book review for the Twisted Book Club. Last time, I reviewed The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. Today is International Women’s Day and the UN’s Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace. Therefore, I would like to talk about an important book. Namely, All the rage written by Courtney Summers (trigger warning: mentions of sexual trauma and rape). I personally think it is an important book, as it talks about the aftermath of sexual assault. Not a lot of books talk about what sexual assault actually does to its victims. At least not to this extent. The story is about Romy and how she deals with it. The book is written in such a way, that you really get into what is going on in Romy’s mind. It can be intense at times, however, it gives you a realistic look into it. So, let’s get angry!
