Here’s a rundown on what’s up on my blog recently… ish. Well, it’s called Random Recap for a reason.
For today’s recap, a few mystery and thriller books have invaded my bookshelf and it evidently reached up to my blog. So I’ve decided to compile these book reviews of mine that you might have missed under the mystery and thriller genre.
Let’s start with my favorites, shall we? Dead Girls Don’t Lie is still on top of my list of books with mind-blowing revelations. Damage Done, out this July 21st, comes in close.
I didn’t have a hard time reading this book because of Samantha’s voice. It is straightforward, even though most of her dialogue ends with a question mark (amnesia, duh.) and she seems confused, the prose is written in a way where readers can easily connect with Samantha.
That twisted ending just blew my wits out. I guess I was too tired at 4:30 am when I just read through the last parts. When I’ve finally put the book down and went to the bathroom, the story was still going through my head. I was sitting on the toilet (sorry for tmi) when I realized that I almost missed that major plot twist.
Gearshift to Suspense
Books to keep you on the edge of your seats. Ruthless did its job and surely had me holding my breath (because the Wolfman might hear me and see where Ruth is hiding). On the other hand, The Escape was indeed a page-turner and surely, I was on the edge of my seat until I almost fell on the floor with that so-so ending.
The suspense build up is compelling. It’s like I was also with Ruth in the book and I’m on the run for survival. But, to be honest, I can’t really imagine being in her situation. (Being naked and lost? I’d be a hopeless wreck!) I’d probably be dead by the first 10 minutes – or less.
The culprit is right in front of you, the book spelled it out already but somehow, you choose to overlook that fact. You deny yourself of everything until you finish the book, it won’t let you put it down until you turn to the very last page.

I’m also on Bloglovin’. Although, I can’t add a blog button on my sidebar because they don’t support WordPress, for now. #sadlife
That’s it for now. How did I do on my first ever Blog Recap? Seriously, I would LOVE to hear from you. My blog feels lonely when there is no one to talk to. And please, check out the featured book reviews above if you still haven’t.
