Thor, Vol. 1 !!!
Thor, Vol. 1 - Coipel Olivier,J. Michael Straczynski

In the movies, Thor is one of my favorite people. So when I saw this volume on Prime Reading. I HAD TO HAVE IT.

 

I loved this way more than I expected. Seriously, it was so good. I loved the stories, every one of them, I just love the characters. I wanted some Sif. I LOVE SIF. But even though she wasn't around, she got mentioned lots and that gave me all the feels. Ooops.

How Will I Know You? by Jessica Treadway
How Will I Know You?: A Novel - Jessica Treadway

A page-turner about the murder of a teenage girl, from the author of Lacy Eye.

 

On a cold December day in northern upstate New York, the body of high school senior Joy Enright is discovered in the woods at the edge of a pond. She had been presumed drowned, but an autopsy shows that she was, in fact, strangled. As the investigation unfolds, four characters tell the story from widely divergent perspectives: Susanne, Joy's mother and a professor at the local art college; Martin, a black graduate student suspected of the murder; Harper, Joy's best friend and a potential eyewitness; and Tom, a rescue diver and son-in-law of the town's police chief. As a web of small-town secrets comes to light, a dramatic conclusion reveals the truth about Joy's death.

 

*********

 

Confession time! I could not finish Lacy Eye by Jessica Treadway. I read half the book, and I could not for the life of me enjoy the story. So, I was a bit worried about how this book would turn out. But, I was instantly drawn into this sad and tense story about a young girl that turns up murdered and the impact it has on the community, from her family to her friends not to mention the man accused of killing her.

 

What I really like about the story is that it moves between the time before and after the murder. Both storylines are intriguing as we get to follow the investigation of the murder at the same time we slowly get a picture of what is going on with and around Joy Enright before she is murdered. I came to like Joy, especially when I found out her big secret, why she was acting so different before she was killed. The book is well written and heartbreakingly sad.

 

I think this book's strength is that it keeps surprising the reader and that the characters are so well developed with flaws and all. Everything that happens has consequences and that is something that this story really show.

 

I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy for an honest review!

How Will I Know You?
How Will I Know You?: A Novel - Jessica Treadway

This was one of those novels that I could put down and walk away from but the story stayed with me until I picked it back up again. There were no cliffhangers, no urgent need to go to the next chapter yet I was draw to found out what really happened to Joy the day at the pond and who was responsible for her murder. The minute someone played the race card and arrested Martin, I had this doubt in my mind that he was the one responsible. I couldn’t find any reason why this man would want to harm Joy and how were they connected? Then all the stories began surfacing, the Now stories and the Before stories, different individuals telling me their versions of their story now and in past. It was my turn to begin piecing it all together, in my own time and in my own way.

When Joy goes missing, her small community comes together to search for her. When her body is found, the community comes together to search for the killer. When the police make an arrest, the stories that spread throughout the community are divided. Did the police arrest the correct individual? What secrets are hiding behind the doors in this small town? As the author uncovers the truth behind Joy’s murder, we read this account in chapters from many different individuals in this town and we view the events that are now occurring and some that had occurred in the past. When the truth is finally spoken, I was surprised at the finding. I found this novel interesting, lots of individuals with their own stories, their own drama and secrets. I enjoyed it. I'm between a 3.5 and 4 stars. I liked the novel but the ending, I am not so sure of.
I won a copy of this novel from Chic Lit Plus. This review is my own opinion.
