Thriller Thursday: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Did you read The Girl on the Train? What did you think about it? Please share your thoughts with me in the comments!

I usually read the entire book and then think about it for a few days before I sit down to write my review. I do this because sometimes the way I feel about a book changes after I’ve had a chance to process it as a whole. But as I’m reading The Girl on the Train, I have some pretty strong emotions from the beginning, so I wanted to see what happens to my review if I write down my thoughts along the way.

Book Review: Act of War by Brad Thor

Book Review: Act of War by Brad Thor

One of the things that I find so thrilling about Thor’s novels is that the scenarios he describes and technology used by his characters often show up in the real news over the next 12-18 months. So you know he’s done his research thoroughly and crafted a story that, while it is fiction, feels completely real when you are reading it. And that adds an unbelievable edge to the reading experience.
