TBR Thursday – June 13

TBR Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly Faye Reads, where you post a title from your shelf or e-reader and find out what others think about it.

My pick this week is Into the Water by Paula Hawkins.

Goodreads Synopsis:

‘Julia, it’s me. I need you to call me back. Please, Julia, it’s important…’

In the last days before her death, Nel Abbott called her sister. 

Jules didn’t pick up the phone, ignoring her plea for help. 

Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules has been dragged back to the one place she hoped she had escaped for good, to care for the teenage girl her sister left behind.

But Jules is afraid. So afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of knowing that Nel would never have jumped.

And most of all she’s afraid of the water, and the place they call the Drowning Pool…

With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, satisfying read that hinges on the stories we tell about our pasts and their power to destroy the lives we live now. 

Have you read this book? What did you think of it?

  1. I was really excited to read this one because it sounded so good, but I personally didn’t enjoy this one as much as I hoped to. I hadn’t yet read a book by Paula Hawkins before this one, but I felt that it was entirely too predictable and didn’t leave me feeling on edge as much as I hoped it would. I didn’t particularly enjoy any of the characters (or their development) and unfortunately, the story fell flat for me. Hope you do enjoy it though 🙂

  2. I just read this one not too long ago! I really enjoyed it! My copy also had a list of who was who in the front of the book so that kept me sane with each chapter because it was confusing with all the characters! The ending threw me for a little loop! I’ll be curious to see what you think when you get around to reading it!
