"Yes, daddy. Yes."
No. Please no.
I feel like somebody noted the success of books like Gone Girl and the success of Fifty Shades of Grey and thought: wouldn't it be great if we had a book that combined the two? No, actually. No, it wouldn't.
The Girl Before failed on so many levels, and I say tha...

I’m tossing this one on the heaping pile of books that led me to believe they were worthy of comparisons to Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train, but left me disappointed instead. Is this madness ever going to end? Why can’t a book be left to stand on it’s own merits? I guess it’s my fault for givi...

The Girl Before is a psychological thriller that is getting a lot of attention. The movie rights have even been sold to Universal with Ron Howard to direct. I didn't know any of that when I first read the description for the...

1 Folgate Street is no ordinary house, it is cutting edge and won the Stirling Prize. It is an example of extreme minimalism and incorporates the latest home technology. It was originally designed by the techno-architect Edward Monkton as his family home but his wife and son died there which mean...

Really fast paced and captured my attention from beginning to end, but it tried a little hard to be too many different things. I kept getting whiplash over all the "But this! And this! Now this! Jk this! Look at me; I'm being shocking and twisty!" Unfortunately, this took away from what...

Don't be so sure, because those rents are expensive. This house, however has the latest...

I am in the minority with my feelings about The Girl Before--this book has received excellent reviews, but it just didn’t work for me.
The premise is intriguing: What if you had the opportunity to live in the perfect house designed by a famous architect for a low price? The only catch is that the...

I received a copy of The Girl Before through NetGalley for an honest review. My thanks to Ballantine Books and to J.P. Delaney for the opportunity.
To control or to be controlled?......now that is the question.
The Girl Before has more wicked cogs in the wheel than a jacked-up Monster truck in high...

Update: I just read that Ron Howard is going to direct the movie adaptation of this book. I can't wait!
Wow! Book slump averted! A thriller has not made me this excited since Megan Miranda's All the Missing Girls.
The story is told in alternating chapters between Emma, the girl before, and Jane, t...

If I am rating this solely on my review rating system this book gets no more than 2 stars from me. It was just okay and for the most part it wasn’t an enjoyable read for me. I listened to the audio version of this book and what I did really like though was the narrators as it was performed very...
