This is one of my fastest read I ve lately done because this soul haunting, gripping, mend nerving, page turner truly captivates you from the beginning You get hooked You cannot resume doing your basic things like watching TV thankfully I finished this one before binge watch Marvelous Mrs Maisel, because reading this book or binge watching one of my favorite series may force me to invent a new activity like binge reawatching read one page, look at the tv for one minute and repeat this action several times till you start to think your favorite stand up star lost her son and deals with her cheating husband, see how two storylines merged perfectly well at least both Mrs Maisel and Marin suffers the same kind of assholish husband s betrayals , eating proper food I bribed my husband to feed me but he backstabbed me and ate whole pizza by himself, I hope he gains 100 pounds and I ll reject to push him out of the door , taking bathroom breaks adult diapers are the best invention of the history, what, you said there is no such a thing as adult diapers Okay this is humiliating I ll kill those so called best friends who notoriously pranked me so bad I went back and forth between 4 and 5 stars Writing, pacing, story building, ending, twists and surprises some of them could be foreseen but they were still amazing are intriguingly stunning and excitingly gripping But I hate most of the characters The husband, the mistress, even the shady best friend Marin is probably my favorite even though she is pretentious, self destructive, unpredictable and inconsistent but I didn t care about her flaws, the mistakes she makes over and over again which makes her human and connectable character She can be considered mean and unfair for using her best friend and ex lover Sal as a shield to protect herself not to feel unwanted and undesired but Sal never seemed like a great and trustworthy personality to be chosen as a future husband figure Her son has been kidnapped and her husband douchebag Derek is having an affair he should get a statue because he also cheated her when she was pregnant so I don t know which one made me pissed off , the cheater or accepter of his wrongdoings with a 24 year old art student and here s the big blow this girl could have involved with the people who had kidnapped her son Did I get your attention I think the blurb of the book gave too much information about the mystery but thankfully they hid the most delicious and mind blowing revelation McKenzie is the another woman let s say, the other girl and it s so normal to detest every particle of her But the reason I hate the guts and have an urge to rip her eyes out, when I read her story, I couldn t find anything concrete to feel sympathy or empathize her She knows exactly she s doing something so terrible but she kept doing it for years like a parasite to suck people s blood to have a better living The part Marin visited McKenzie s coffee to see her own enemy, I couldn t decide to appraise her or scream at her face when she wanted to cut the girl s head off, she kept calm and said nothing she might be aquarius woman because an Aries woman like me throws the hot coffee at pink bleached haired homewrecker s face and shove the cookie to her okay you may imagine the rest of it So Marin hardly functions after her child s loss and committed suicide before, seeing a therapist and joining a grief club at a donut place with group of people she normally never considers to engage if it isn t for their common grief and shared experiences And now she is about to lose her husband, too But will she let the other woman take him away from her Hell, no So take a seat, grab the book and start devouring the pages with full excitement because the book is getting so much better Overall even though I wanted to hire contract killers from other books yes, my shrink told me this is literally impossible and consciously it s really mean thing to think about to torture viciously some of those despicable characters, I m rounding up 4.5 stars to 5 because I had really great time when I m reading it.Thankfully I also have Jar of Hearts on my reading list now so I m looking forward to get my hands on it, too.Special thanks to NetGalley and St Martin s Press Minotaur Books for sharing this one of the most promising 2020 thriller s ARC COPY with me in exchange my honest review.bloginstagramfacebooktwitter 5 STARS EVERY STAR This is the best book I have read in a long time and I ve read about 300 books this year Do yourself a favor and read as little about it as possible before diving in.This is not one to miss, I predict it will be all anyone in the book world is talking about in April 2020 Thank you to Jennifer Hillier, Minotaur Books and NetGalley for giving me this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Highly Addictive Little Secrets is a psychological thriller about a missing child All is not what seems That is all I am going to say because it is best to go in blind The narrative is split between the two main female characters Both are well developed and have distinct voices All of the characters are all horrible a holes, yet some are still likable Filled with secrets, deception and a ton of twists and turns, this book kept me riveted It is fast paced and filled with tension I went into this book blind I hadn t even read the synopsis, so I had no idea where things were headed, which made it even enjoyable I guessed some of the twists and the guilty party but still couldn t figure out what exactly was happening When it all came together, I hit myself on the head because it was all so obvious I was too caught up in one of the storylines to notice what was actually going on right before my eyes My one complaint is that the ending unravels a bit and goes off the rails, but that did not deter from my overall enjoyment.After reading several duds in this genre, I took a break from reading thrillers This book reminded me of why I love them I received an ARC of this book from Edelweiss and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
