What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

What Alice Forgot - Liane MoriartyWelcome to another book-review for the Twisted Book Club! I started reading What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty because I really loved The Husband’s Secret. Of course, I read the summary, but that was not necessary because I had already put my confidence in Moriarty. I was excited because I really wanted to know how someone can forget 10 years of their life. Other than that, I was curious about Alice’s life and what would cause her to forget 10 years of it. Keep reading if you want to know more about What Alice Forgot. (more…)

Hold Still by Lisa Regan

hold still

Welcome to another book-review for the Twisted Book Club! Today, I’m talking about Hold Still by Lisa Regan. Last time, I talked about C. J. Cooke’s I Know My Name. My sister recommended me Hold Still. We pretty much exchange recommendations and I love it, because we both love to read and afterwards we can vent about our frustrations to each other. Lol, what is greater than having someone to talk about fictional characters with? The book is about detective Jocelyn Rush, who saves her three-year-old from a carjacking and ends up in the ER. At the ER she discovers a former prostitute, Anita, who is a victim of a brutal assault. Soon, detective Rush finds out that Anita isn’t the first victim… will she be able to solve this? Let’s get into a twisted story, shall we? Note: mentions of sexual assault and rape.

I Know My Name by C.J. Cooke

Welcome to another book-review for the Twisted Book Club! You can read the previously discussed book Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. This time I will review I Know My Name written by C. J. Cooke. I got this book at the hotel in The Gambia. I had my friend read it first and she finished it before I went back to Senegal, so I brought it. Meaning that I’ve had this book for almost a year now. I’ve finally found the time and space to read it. The story is about this woman who wakes up stranded on an island, but doesn’t know who she is. Let’s get into a twisty, but great story, shall we?

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…)

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!
