Review: Finders Keepers

Finders Keepers Finders Keepers by Stephen King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Same type of suspense as the first story (which I enjoyed). No one develps characters as well as Stephen King (except maybe Harlan Coben). Definitely moving on to Book #3.

Loved this book! It was educational, enlightening and entertaining. Passing on to my kids. I hope Bill Nye can keep them as engaged as he kept me.

Six Years by Harlan Coben

Six YearsSix Years by Harlan Coben
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. It caught my attention from the first chapter and was twisty from beginning to end. I found myself gasping in surprise at the end of so many chapters. It is a true non-stop thriller with lots of laugh-out-loud moments and a lot of shocking revelations. If you liked Gone Girl, you will LOVE Six Years.  Read it. You will not regret it!!!

This is teen-friendly.  Okay for 13+ only because of the violence. No sex or excessively bad language.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Gone GirlGone Girl by Gillian Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow! This was a great read. The story was non-stop action with a great writing style - both main characters are telling you their story from their perspective. It was a true page-turner and I couldn't wait for the ending which was... meh! The book was so good, though, so twisty and smart and unexpected that I would still recommend it to others. But only 4 stars because of the weak ending.
(NOT kid-friendly.  Adults only!)
