Book Review : The wife between us Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
The Wife Between Us - Greer Hendricks,Sarah Pekkanen

November 16- December 30

When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife.
You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love.
You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle.
Assume nothing.

Twisted and deliciously chilling, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen's The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

Read between the lies.


Review : This book was a mind fuck so this is told in two POV Nellie and vanessa Nellie is getting married to richard who seems like the perfect guy and vanessa is the ex wife of richard and Nellie is getting weird phone calls and she's excited to be married to richard to start a life with him . I didn't like richard from the moment we met him I knew there was something sketchy about him and he was a controlling asshole he doesn't want Nellie to work why WTF . Vanessa is upset richard is getting married but not for the reasons you think cause Nellie and Vanessa they are the same person it's told in the past and present and Vanessa wants to stop Richard from getting married cause he's a abusive piece of shit who lies and spins truths so she came up with a plan to get Richard to leave her and he did but then she felt bad for the girl Emma so she plans to stop it so she gets in contact with Emma and first she doesn't believe her but then she looks into it and does believe Vanessa . Vanessa shows up to meet up with Richard and Emma to stop this once and for all she confronts him and he tries to hurt her . See when Richard was a teenager he was in the car crash with his parents and that messed him up but that is still no excuse to be a abusive piece of shit Richard goes to a mental heath place to get some help and his sister is going to watch over him. So it turns out Emma also had a plan to so when Vanessa was in college she was dating her professor who turned out to be married and she didn't know he was married and Emma was his daughter this book was so good so many twists .

Quotes :
I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.’ Well, I’ve never feared bad weather, either.

For years, I have allowed fear to dominate me. But as I sit in the cab, I realize another emotion is rising to the surface: anger. It felt cathartic to unleash my rage at Richard after absorbing his for so long.

The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
The Phantom of the Opera - Gaston Leroux,David Coward

TITLE:  The Phantom of the Opera

 

AUTHOR:  Gaston Leroux

 

TRANSLATOR:  David Coward

 

FORMAT:  Paperback

 

ISBN-13:  9780199694570

 

EDITION:  Oxford World's Classics

_________________________________

DESCRIPTION:

"First published in French as a serial in 1909, "The Phantom of the Opera" is a riveting story that revolves around the young, Swedish Christine Daaé. Her father, a famous musician, dies, and she is raised in the Paris Opera House with his dying promise of a protective angel of music to guide her. After a time at the opera house, she begins hearing a voice, who eventually teaches her how to sing beautifully. All goes well until Christine's childhood friend Raoul comes to visit his parents, who are patrons of the opera, and he sees Christine when she begins successfully singing on the stage. The voice, who is the deformed, murderous 'ghost' of the opera house named Erik, however, grows violent in his terrible jealousy, until Christine suddenly disappears. The phantom is in love, but it can only spell disaster. Leroux's work, with characters ranging from the spoiled prima donna Carlotta to the mysterious Persian from Erik's past, has been immortalized by memorable adaptations. Despite this, it remains a remarkable piece of Gothic horror literature in and of itself, deeper and darker than any version that follows."

This is another one of those foreign language (French) novels that has a dozen awful translations with omissions and additions.  The new translation by David Coward is supposed to be true to the original.  I found no complaints with the style of the translation and the notes to be quite helpful.  The story itself is a love story/Gothic horror that differs a fair amount from Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical production.  Interesting and entertaining.

Book Review : Jar of hearts Jennifer Hiller
Jar of Hearts - Jennifer Hillier

Oct 11-13

This is the story of three best friends: one who was murdered, one who went to prison, and one who's been searching for the truth all these years . . .

When she was sixteen years old, Angela Wong—one of the most popular girls in school—disappeared without a trace. Nobody ever suspected that her best friend, Georgina Shaw, now an executive and rising star at her Seattle pharmaceutical company, was involved in any way. Certainly not Kaiser Brody, who was close with both girls back in high school.

But fourteen years later, Angela Wong's remains are discovered in the woods near Geo's childhood home. And Kaiser—now a detective with Seattle PD—finally learns the truth: Angela was a victim of Calvin James. The same Calvin James who murdered at least three other women.

To the authorities, Calvin is a serial killer. But to Geo, he's something else entirely. Back in high school, Calvin was Geo's first love. Turbulent and often volatile, their relationship bordered on obsession from the moment they met right up until the night Angela was killed.

For fourteen years, Geo knew what happened to Angela and told no one. For fourteen years, she carried the secret of Angela's death until Geo was arrested and sent to prison.

While everyone thinks they finally know the truth, there are dark secrets buried deep. And what happened that fateful night is more complex and more chilling than anyone really knows. Now the obsessive past catches up with the deadly present when new bodies begin to turn up, killed in the exact same manner as Angela Wong.

How far will someone go to bury her secrets and hide her grief? How long can you get away with a lie? How long can you live with it


TRIGGER WARNING FOR RAPE 

Book Review : This book was really good Geo is being sent to Jail for helping with the murder of her best friend and she goes to Jail her roommate raped her it was a rough scene to read but she meets this woman who takes care of the problem after time she goes through routine she is a hairdresser in Jail makes a friend named Kat . the second POV is Kai who is a cop but also a guy who has a thing for Geo and they went to high school together . Calvin escaped from Jail and Kai has been trying to get him since . five years have passed and Geo is getting out of Jail . There is a kinda copy cat murder out there women and children which is super fucked up but they turn out to be Calvin's children Kai is trying to find the guy . we get a flashback to Calvin's and Geo's relationship which was soooo abusive he was a angry rapist murder he raped and killed Angela like oh my fucking god so fucked up . Kai and Geo end up having sex even though this is crazy ass book I did want them to get together . We find out the actual murder of these kids and woman is Geo's son cause Calvin raped her she gave him up for adoption and her son showed up at her home to talk then she finds out he was the killer and calvin shows up and Geo kills both . Geo goes to visit a graveyard of her son and Angela she is pregnant with Kai's baby so through all this shit she's been through she gets to start over.

Quote: 

“You only get one heart", Walter said to his daughter after the second one ended. He seemed sad, but not regretful. " I gave mine to your mother the day I met her. And she still has it.”
