In a Dark, Dark Wood | Ruth Ware
This book was a Kindle read. In a Dark, Dark Wood was a good suspense book. It’s even in production to become a movie! It’s about a group of people who go to a bachelorette party, otherwise known in the book as a hen party (it’s a British book). The main character hasn’t seen the bride in years, and she’s not even sure why she has been invited. She decides to give it a go and shows up with a mutual friend. Through out the whole book, you aren’t sure what happened in their past, but you know something did. You also find out that someone has been murdered, but like her memory, you don’t really know what happened. The storyline jumps around while you try to put the pieces together. Definitely a good quick read.
Behind Closed Doors | B.A. Paris
Another British book. I don’t normally read British books, but I have been trying them out more and more. This one I listened to on Audible. I was really disappointed in it. The tagline for Behind Closed Doors reads “The perfect marriage, or the perfect lie.” As you get into the book you realize the newlyweds aren’t as happy as they seem. After knowing each other a short time, Grace and Jack get married. They have brunch with friends, they visit Grace’s sister and take a exquisite honeymoon. But, then you realize that Grace is never alone, she doesn’t own a cell phone, quit her job and can’t even seem to make it to brunch without Jack. His dark temperament is not what she expected when they met. While, this whole story line sounds dark and thrilling, it wasn’t that. It was slow paced, and flat out boring.
A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows (A Song of Fire and Ice, #1, 2, 3, & 4) | George R.R. Martin
I’ve been listening to the books on Audible while I’m working. At first it was hard to listen to and keep up with, but I’ve seen the series and it made it a lot easier to understand the locations and the characters. Otherwise, I would have definitely been lost! I’m halfway through the 4th book, and it’s keeping me excited about it until the show starts back up again. Has anyone tried to read the books? If so, did you like the show or the book better?
