What did you recently finish reading?

The Doll House

A young woman wakes up in a cold, dark cellar, with no idea how she got there or who her kidnapper is. So begins her terrible nightmare.

Nearby, the body of another young woman is discovered buried on a remote beach. But the dead girl was never reported missing – her estranged family having received regular texts from her over the years. Someone has been keeping her alive from beyond the grave.

For Detective Inspector Helen Grace it’s chilling evidence that she’s searching for a monster who is not just twisted but also clever and resourceful – a predator who’s killed before.

And as Helen struggles to understand the killer’s motivation, she begins to realize that she’s in a desperate race against time…

I am really enjoying the Helen Grace series. This is the 3rd novel and I enjoyed it as much as the first two novels!

What are you currently reading?

Cheerleaders

There are no more cheerleaders in the town of Sunnybrook.

First there was the car accident—two girls gone after hitting a tree on a rainy night. Not long after, the murders happened. Those two girls were killed by the man next door. The police shot him, so no one will ever know why he did it. Monica’s sister was the last cheerleader to die. After her suicide, Sunnybrook High disbanded the cheer squad. No one wanted to be reminded of the girls they lost.

That was five years ago. Now the faculty and students at Sunnybrook High want to remember the lost cheerleaders. But for Monica, it’s not that easy. She just wants to forget. Only, Monica’s world is starting to unravel. There are the letters in her stepdad’s desk, an unearthed, years-old cell phone, a strange new friend at school. . . . Whatever happened five years ago isn’t over. Some people in town know more than they’re saying. And somehow Monica is at the center of it all.

There are no more cheerleaders in Sunnybrook, but that doesn’t mean anyone else is safe.

I’m torn on this one. I like it, but there are aspects that I don’t really like. This one will come down to the ending!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Those Other Women

Poppy and Carise are frustrated. They’re tired of watching the same old cycle: women in their office fall pregnant, leave early and take months off only to eventually return, requesting ‘more flexibility’. All with smug smiles on their faces.

That’s why they create the ‘No Baby Club’ – a Facebook group dedicated to women like themselves who don’t have children, who don’t want children and who simply want to vent about the ‘annoying mummies’ in their lives. They create challenges designed to make sure that childless women reap the benefits, like leaving early for a fake appointment and making one of them pick up the slack for a change. Memberships soar.

But as the group’s tasks get more extreme, Carise starts to worry that they’re taking things too far. On top of that, it seems that not all the new members are being honest and it’s not long before things start to slide disastrously out of control…

Nicola is the sister of best selling author, Liane Moriarty. I enjoyed Nicola’s previous novel, The Fifth Letter, and her newest novel sounds super interesting!

  1. Ooh, The Dolls House grabbed me…and I know that I should read the first two books in the series first. I have Eeny Meeny patiently waiting on my Kindle.

    I love the look of Those Other Women…and when I went to check it out, I saw that I bought it in June! Wow! I brought it forward on Pippa, my Kindle. I do “lose” items there.

    Thanks for sharing, and here’s MY WWW POST

  2. Some great choices here. I am working my way through the Helen Grace series and I am also enjoying it. I want to read Those Other Women, but have such a long TBR, I am not sure when i will get to it. I have to order it from the library.
