Reading progress update: I've listened 60 out of 360 minutes.
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks

I figure an hour when I have time should work for this.

 

So far so good. Enjoying the audio a lot. Trying to read this was a no go.

 

So far I didn't recognize that many voices. Max Brooks (the author) I found out was the narrator and I can see why many people said eh to him.

 

Hoping to finish by the time I get back from Boston on Tuesday (next week)! Planning on listening on the plane rides. I leave Friday so will be quiet with some pop ins if I have a chance.

Psychological Horror – Eeny Meeny by M J Arlidge @mjarlidge
By M. J. Arlidge Eeny Meeny: Di Helen Grace 1 [Paperback] - M.J. Arlidge

The cover and title for Eeny Meeny by M J Arlidge made this an easy reading choice for me. It gave me a feeling of danger and kept me reading to the end.

MY REVIEW

 

The cover and title for Eeny Meeny by M J Arlidge made this an easy reading choice for me. It gave me a feeling of danger and kept me reading to the end. It’s his debut novel…and it’s a good one.

 

Adult Reading. S&M, bondage.

 

Hitchhiking, I think not. It will be very hazardous to someone’s health.

 

Sam and Amy had been taken and Amy wondered if she was capable of doing what was necessary to survive.

 

The psychological horror for Amy starts on the very first page. Will it destroy her?

 

Helen was born to be a cop. She is a badass with a flawed, yet soft heart, dedicated to her job.

 

With a sadist serial killer, Eeny Meeny reads like a Criminal Minds episode.

 

Some characters are flawed, but for me, that makes them more interesting. What is normal?

 

Others are innocent, yet doomed. Who and why? Have I met the killer?

 

Mystery and betrayal. Confrontation and choice? Love and sacrifice.

 

Someone was playing a devious and cruel game.

 

It took me a while to figure out the connection.

 

Be careful. The author is not afraid to kill off anyone if it suits his purpose. I love dark and evil, with mystery and suspense to die for, and we have plenty of it here.

 

I will be on the lookout for the next story in the Detective Inspector Helen Grace series.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Eeny Meeny by M J Arlidge.

The Likeness - Tana French

This is about to be a straight up DNF. I may need some help in figuring out something else for the "Terrifying Women" square. I am ticked! I loved the first book in the series and this is some epic level Blue almost started posting rage updates last night, but she had to go to bed. And I woke up this morning and am still mad. And I read some more on the train and finally threw this paperback in my purse before I heaved it at someone's head.

This has to be a joke.

 

So the second book in the Dublin Murder Squad series focuses on Rob's former partner, Cass. 

 

Think of this book taking some parts of the things you hear about via Rob in book #1 and you get to where he gets at the end with (spoilers if you didn't read book #1, don't read further)

 

 

Cass and Sam become engaged. 

(spoiler show)

 

Well in this second book you find out how they get there. That's fine. But the Cass in this book is not the Cass we meet in book #1. She's rudderless and a bit of a mess because of the last case. Not because of Rob though. Also if you want to hear her thoughts on Rob, enjoy, cause he's barely mentioned so far.


What got my blood up was the whole plot in book #2.


Not a spoiler.

 

Sam finds a murder victim that could be Cass's twin sister. This young woman also steals a name that Cass used during her undercover days. And now they are pushing Cass to go in and pose as this dead girl with her housemates. Yeah..cause when you look like someone you sound just like them and no one is going to pick up on any nuances. The whole idea is dumb as hell!

I skimmed a bit further I got up to 100 pages all together with skimming and Cass has lost the plot. That's all I have to say. I am not feeling overwhelmed at all. Instead I am feeling cheated. And annoyed.

Women Murderers Of The 18th Century #Halloweenbingo2017
Women Murderers of the 18th Century - Sylvia Perrini

For a short novella I felt I learned about the subject of women serial killers that I didn't know about before.

I know it sounds silly but I don't remember ever reading about female killers before until these past 10 years.

Each set of women killed in their own way and of course was found out. Even back then they couldn't hide what they did no matter how much they tried.

We get a bit of detail on how each women took the lives of those around them, though we are not bored with full details. It is more sweet and to the point. 

If you are looking for just true crime light reading then this maybe the book for you.
