Reading progress update: I've listened to I don´t know how many minutes out of 745 minutes.
Final Girls - Riley Sager

(...don´t ask my where I am at in the audiobook. I´m listening to this on the Scribd app and this shoddy app doesn´t show me how many minutes of my audiobook I have listened to).

 

Quincey and her friends went on a weekend trip to a cabin in the woods, a serial killer killed all of her friends and Quincey is the sole survivor. Hence she became one of the final girls (besides having a career as a baking blogger).

 

I just listened to the first flashback of what has happened in the cabin. Quincey gets forced by her best friend, Janelle, to share a room with her maybe boyfriend Greg. And what does a 19-year old female college student think of in a situation like that? Of course, she thinks of the most tropey thing ever: loosing her virginity.

 

I haven´t made up my mind yet, but I have a hunch that this book might not be for me.

My Thoughts

 

Honestly, the shit that happens to these three sisters is hard to believe at times.  So, if you look at this book from a standpoint of believability, I would probably only give it about 3 Stars…but it's ultimate message of the bond of sisters and finding the strength to carry on; even when life is trying to make that impossible, is what ultimately saved it.  That…and it has a lot of non-stop nail biting action, that had me hooked till the end.  I was literally screaming at my radio while listening to this, especially, in that final hour or so.

 

Will I read more from this Author  It's possible…

A Map For Wrecked Girls
A Map for Wrecked Girls - Jessica Taylor
I was really excited to get my hands on this novel. It was when I thought it might never end, I was dreading that I had started it. I thought the middle of the novel took forever and I was not pleased with how the novel ended. So, what did I like? I liked the idea of the three individuals being washed up on a mystery island. I liked the how the author revealed the mysteries that plagued my mind as I read this novel and I liked the characters when they were stranded upon the island. During this novel, the author switches between the present day to the character’s past many times and I thought she did an excellent job of this. I didn’t feel lost or out of sync with what was happening in each time period.
 
As I read, I felt that Emma was too attached to her sister Henri. This relationship was toxic. Henri was a bitch and later, she wore a crown to proclaim this title just because…… she could. Henri had no right, in my world, to act the way that she did. She was extreme and I wanted to throw her back out to sea a few times just to calm my frustrations with her. As Emma babied her older sister, yes, I said older, it was finally on page 315 that I heard the words that I’ve been hoping to read. Emma stood on her own two feet, she had finally seen the light. As Emma comes to grips with reality, I wondered how long this would last. As the characters are stranded on the island, there was tension, frustration and anxiety as the days are checked off. No one seems to be coming to their rescue and the characters true colors were revealed. As the days add up, the characters begin to get comfortable in their surroundings and looking to the future began to have different perspectives. This is a novel that I am glad I finally got to read but I wish that a few things would have been different.
