A book that was so addicting you couldn’t put it down

Thrillers are the definition of a page-turner, and I hate having to put one down when I’m hooked. Quiet in Her Bones is the perfect example of that, and it’s such an underrated book. The main character is determined to find out who killed his mother, and he’s not interested in waiting for the police to solve the case. He starts his own investigation by snooping on his neighbours, but he’s not a very reliable narrator. He even questions his ability to think rationally at times. I stayed up past 3 am reading this book because I needed to know how it would end.

A book that made you wish you could live in their world

This is a tough question! I wish I had a more interesting answer, but I’ll go with People We Meet on Vacation. I would want to have Poppy’s job and live happily ever after with my best friend. Poppy works for a travel company and she gets to go on all expenses paid for trips to gorgeous destinations. She even gets to bring her best friend with her and the book follows 10 years worth of their summer vacations.

A book that was confusing

It was between the The Night Circus and Oona out of Order and because I can’t even put into words how confusing the latter was, I’m going with The Night Circus. This book confused me for so many reasons. What’s with all the hype? Why does the timeline keep changing every two seconds? Am I supposed to believe that these two characters who barely know each other are deeply in love? I have so many questions! 

A book that had a character you didn’t love at first, but eventually grew on you

Nothing is coming to me for this one. I either love a character right from the start, or I feel lukewarm about them, and it doesn’t change. 

A book with a melancholic vibe

I don’t usually read sad books, but I just finished The Other Americans and I think it fits. It focuses on the loss of a husband/father who was killed in a hit-and-run. Noral, one of his two daughters, has the hardest time accepting his death. She wants to keep her father’s restaurant, despite her mother wanting to sell it. She resists any changes in her life in a subconscious effort to hold on to the past. There is little joy in this book, only a slow journey towards acceptance and letting go.

My prompts:

  1. A book from your childhood/teenage years that makes you smile when you think about it
  2. A book that you bought and didn’t end up liking
  3. A book that made you feel hopeful for the future
  4. A book that you couldn’t wait to gush about
  5. A book where the ending made you angry
