The Wives by Tarryn Fisher
The Wives - Tarryn Fisher

My mind is blown!
I really don't know how someone couldn't like this story. I didn't think I would but here we are. It was so twisted, it was epic!
You think he's crazy, then you think she's crazy, then you're back to him, and back to her again and so on. You really get so wrapped up in this stpy that you don't even know who to believe.
That's what I love though. The unpredictability, even when you think it's predictable.
Thriller fans will eat this up. I finished it in record time because I hated having to put it down. 
UGH, when life gets in the way of reading!
Definitely get a copy of this one. You won't regret it.

give it a miss.
The Wives - Tarryn Fisher

The book wants to play with the reader's mind and allows that desire to override anything else. It does start out very strong. But the first big reveal of what happened and its excuse for things does not quite work. It made me think of The Perfect Girlfriend, which handles the unreliable narrator issue far better. Good start, weak middle and horrible finish.


(BTW, I do not usually do this, but I strongly advise against reading this if you cannot have children or suffer from a mental illness).

Bout Of Books Day #3
Where'd You Go, Bernadette - Maria Semple
Asking for it - Louise T. O'Neill
F*ck Love - Tarryn Fisher, Madison Seidler
Every Heart a Doorway - Seanan McGuire
The Travelling Cat Chronicles - Hiro Arikawa
Conversations with Friends - Sally Rooney

Here's the challenge for day 3:

 

Pick your favorite book and recreate it OR reimagine the cover either live (with yourself or a willing participant as the cover art) or drawing, sculpture, crafts, painting, etc.

 

There were so many I liked that I put up 6! I'll give a brief summary of each one.

 

  • Where'd You Go Bernadette

 

I like the simplistic nature of this one and I love that shade of green, so soothing.

 

Asking For It

 

The plastic image of the doll relates so much about this book and the way woman are objectified. It really speaks to me.

 

F*ck Love

 

Tarryn Fisher's covers are lovely, but this one stands out as beautiful

 

Every Heart A Doorway

 

What's not to love about this image?

 

The Travelling Cat Chronicles

 

I love cats and snow, so it's a perfect combination

 

Conversations with Friends

 

This cover is so vibrant and simple. I love it.

"It's your darkness that pulls me in. Your mud vein. But sometimes having a mud vein will kill you."
Mud Vein - Tarryn Fisher

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

Mud Vein

Tarryn Fisher

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

When reclusive novelist Senna Richards wakes up on her thirty-third birthday, everything has changed. Caged behind an electrical fence, locked in a house in the middle of the snow, Senna is left to decode the clues to find out why she was taken. If she wants her freedom, she has to take a close look at her past. But, her past has a heartbeat... and her kidnapper is nowhere to be found. With her survival hanging by a thread, Senna soon realizes this is a game. A dangerous one. Only the truth can set her free.

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I have loved some of Tarryn Fisher's Stories because they are not like anything else you've ever read.  I'm not sure I was able to grasp all the subtle nuances of this complex story, not enough for me to love it, at least, but that's not to say that I wasn't moved by it.  I have read somewhere that this story means a lot to Fisher and I am curious as to the why especially now that I've read/listened to it. 

 

I will say that this was nothing like I thought it was going to be…I thought I had it pegged from the cover and from reading other posted reviews.  But, no.  I was wrong.  Senna is not so much unlikable, as she is distant.  She is an anomaly and she has been taken by someone…this is her story about love and survival.

A psychopath, a sociopath and a fiction writer walk into a bar…
Bad Mommy - Tarryn Fisher

 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

Bad Mommy

Tarryn Fisher

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

When Fig Coxbury buys a house on West Barrett Street, it's not because she likes the neighborhood, or even because she likes the house. It's because everything she desires is next door: The husband, the child, and the life that belongs to someone else. 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

A story can be about love and relationships and not be romantic in any way and this is Bad Mommy in a nutshell.  And what a nutshell it is...

 

Whenever I want something different to read, Tarryn Fisher is my go-to Author.  She is an exceptional writer, her stories are so varied and basically just plain f*cked up, like what.  It's also quite awesome how she works her boot-fetish into every one of her stories.  This story felt like it could have been based on something that happened to her in real life…I have no clue if it was…but seriously…so cleverly done.
