The Last Thing She Ever Did by Gregg Olsen

This was such an interesting book for nearly the entire novel. Olsen kept me guessing and sitting on the edge of my seat to find out what would happen next. I was ready to rate it at 5 stars until I reached the end. I couldn’t wait to find out how Liz would resolve the conflict, but I won’t give away any spoilers. All I can say is that this was such an enjoyable book, but it could be the worst ending I’ve ever read.




Defending Jacob, by William Landay

This book left me with mixed emotions. Had it not been for the surprise and intriguing ending, I would have been more disappointed. The dialogue was the biggest problem for me in this book, with much of it feeling forced, particularly the teenage portions. I feel like there was so much more potential with the story, yet I was constantly annoyed by the way the main characters spoke. I give it 3.5 stars, but I feel like I’m being generous.


The Body Reader, by Anne Frasier

This book was a bit of a mixed bag for me. Frasier kept my interest, and she did have unique twists throughout. The story overall, however, was simply good, not great. It’s definitely worth the read, but somewhat predictable at times. I’d give it slightly under 4 stars as I would have liked to know more from the lead character’s kidnapping, rather than her life afterwards.
