Review: The Lying Game

The Lying Game The Lying Game by Ruth Ware
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

On every soap opera, two or three characters share a secret. They have constant conversations about said secret, repeating it over and over until just the wrong person is lurking around the corner to overhear it and use it for leverage or blackmail within the next two or three episodes. This book is NOTHING like that. These four ladies REALLY know how to keep a secret. Even when they are discussing the past, we never really know what happened until it slowly unfolds throughout the story. The characters are distinctive and likable and we are able to see how their relationships developed and grew, and what time and this secret have done to make them who they are as adults. Its a great story that dispels bits of information at a great pace. I really enjoyed this one.

Review: Origin

Origin Origin by Dan Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed the book. The action leading up to the suspense was obvious but the "big revelation" was not... until it happened. Good story that kept my attention but I'm not sure it's for everyone. Especially if those that are super-religious or kind of closed-minded. (Typical Dan Brown stuff.) If nothing else, you will undoubtedly learn something about art, an author, a famous piece of writing, or some form of architecture that you didn't know about before.

Review: American Gods

American Gods American Gods by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I liked it, it was very visual and definitely kept my interest. But I've read reviews of people reading this over and over again and I can't see myself doing that. At least I know enough to start watching the series.

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.
