Since we've been stuck at home, I've been doing a lot of reading. I thought for today's Three on Thursday, I'd share the three books I've enjoyed most. In the order I read them, they are:
When I was You by Minka Kent. Billed as a psychological suspense. Despite knowing who 'done it' half way through the book, the suspense was maintained throughout.
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware. This was another suspense thriller and I did not see the end coming at all. My daughter had read it awhile back and recommended it. We had fun discussing what was happening, although I think she may have gotten a little sick of me asking her if certain characters were the 'bad' guy or if the house was really haunted. She never would tell me.
The Haunting of Ashburn House by Darcy Coates. This one had me jumping at every single little noise in the house. It took me a while to read this one because if I had any hope of sleeping, I couldn't read it after dinner. I'm still not sure why this book freaked me out so much because the scary stuff didn't really start until close to the end but from the second page I was jumpy. I threw my drink all over the deck when someone opened the sliding door behind me and dropped a pan of french fries when I turned around and my daughter had come into the kitchen. And that was all before the really scary stuff started happening. If you like a good scare, this is the one.
