I don't know if I can explain why I wasn't a fan of this book...

I'm not sure if it was the writing style, or the fact that the story was so unrealistic, or that everything could have been resolved by a simple conversation but no matter the reasoning, it just left me with a bad feeling.

The story was about a dysfunctional family and a missing persons case. Our main character, Louise, is depressed and suicidal after an incident with her daughter referred to as 'that night'. A year after the event, her husband Michael tells her that he's been having an affair with her sister (this didn't add anything to the plot at all I was very confused at the end as to why this was necessary) and he's going to be arrested for money laundering which will leave them with nothing. Obviously, Louise is upset and needs to get away for a while so she stays at the family's country house away from London. A few days later, her daughter goes missing and Louise is getting frightened when clues start showing up at her door.

 I enjoyed this more than I thought, and more than I did the first book. Unfortunately, one of the main twists was ruined for me before the start of the book (even though I kind of saw it coming... at least part of it) so I feel the need to warn you that there will be spoilers below.

This is what a coming of age story should be.
  I am so in love with this book. I really could NOT put it down.

This is a story about a girl named Shelby who got into an accident with her best friend, Helene. The only difference is that Shelby survived with a scratch and Helene is in a permanent coma. Shelby carries her guilt with her everywhere, especially at the psych ward she's committed to for 3 months after the accident where she refuses to speak. After some time, the only person she really talks to is her drug dealer, Ben. I don't even want to give anything away after this point.

"Please pay attention. This broadcast will repeat three times. Earth must be repurposed. We will start this process in ninety days. Everyone will be eradicated from the planet at that time. There is nothing you can do to stop this. Use the time you have left to find peace with yourselves. You will not hear from us again. Thank you."
Well, this was refreshing. I'm not sure why I've been staying away from short books such as this, but I'm glad that the author reached out and asked me to give it a shot and express my honest opinion.

This month's Adult Fiction book from BooklyBox was A Scandalous Secret b Jaishree Misra. It's no surprise to me that I didn't really enjoy it based on the summary and the title I just didn't think this would be my cup of tea (haha English reference). The story was about a girl, Sonya, who lives in England with her adoptive parents and decides to take a trip to India to meet her birth mother, Neha, in order to find out why she had given her up 17 years ago.

#3 in the Outlander series was quite different from the first two books. We left off with Claire going back to her own time to save her unborn child and for Jamie to meet his death at the battle of Culloden. Well we know that the only way the series is continuing is if...
