These are five quotes that stuck with me from the last 5 books that I’ve read! I believe this was a prompt for Top 10 Tuesday and I thought it was a fun idea so I figured I would give it a go!

Never World Wake by Marisha Pessl

Never World Wake Review

91tzv+xgsslIt’s been a year since Bee has spoken to any of her friends since the mysterious death of her boyfriend. Now after a whirlwind night that leaves them all walking away from a near fatal car crash something strange has happened. They are stuck in a sort of time-lapse called the Never World Wake where they have to vote for only one person to make it out alive.

This book was super obscure and very interesting! I liked the slow build up of tension throughout the plot and how things started unraveling as the storyline progressed. I didn’t really know what to expect from the premise but I enjoyed the direction the book went with. The mystery surrounding Jim’s death and what happened that night, as well as trying to figure out what the Never World Wake is and how they are going to get out of it.

I was definitely intrigued by Bee. She comes across as so innocent and nice and the other characters even mention it about her. No one would ever suspect her of any wrong doing ever and she is always immediately dismissed as decent and pure. But I had a feeling throughout that she was not as guiltless as everyone perceived.

I thought the way that information was discovered through the use of the Wake was fascinating. Especially one Martha figured out how to jump to different Wakes and how that affected the times. I was very engaged and was eager to read on to figure out how it was all happened and what their connections to the Wake were. The twist at the end as well I thought was very well executed, the doubt that is plied consistently throughout the course of the book really helped to completely blind side me when we eventually find out what really happened and everyone’s motivations for what they have done.

I thoroughly enjoyed my read of this. Again I didn’t know what to expect and I was actually pleasantly surprised that I liked it as much as I did. For some reason I had a feeling that I wasn’t going to enjoy the book because it was so hyped but this was another instance that I feel like the hype was justified!

⭐️4/5 A wild ride from beginning to end!

5 Mystery/Thrillers I want to Read in 2019

I would really like to broaden my scope for 2019 and try a few different genres out, I know I will always love fantasy but sometimes I do get a bit bored of them and need something different to cleanse my palate. I would usually pick up a contemporary but I kind of want to get into mysteries/thrillers this year. These are 5 books that I have been seeing around a lot and some have even made it into the Goodreads Choice Awards for 2018 so I figure let’s give them a go!
