" My Thoughts: Blink is one of those thrillers that knocked me for a complete loop! I really don't want to give anything away so I'm going to be very careful in the details I share and how I talk about this book. I'm going to have to be deliberately vague at times but it is for the best of reasons. I want you to have the same kind of reading experience that I did!!! Let this author take you for a thrilling and unexpected ride because it is well worth the trip! I started out reading this one a bit annoyed with Toni. I'm a bit over the main characters that aren't always likable so I was hesitant to say the least. It was different with this book because the author gives valid reasons for the way she behaves. But that didn't stop me from wanting to scream at her a few different times because ugh! Before I knew it though, I was completely wrapped up in the pages of this book. I read the above summary so I thought that I knew what I was getting into but it turned out I didn't. And then I hit a certain point of the book and that was it for me. I couldn't stop reading from that point on. I'm going to be honest and say that I think that this book could have been a bit longer. The author could have drawn it out just a bit more and given a few more details. That's rare for me to say but it did feel very fast after a certain point. It was quite the ending and left me so excited to read more by this author though! Overall, I'm so glad that I have now found this author and have another of her books just waiting to be read. The edition that I read actually included another of her books, Safe With Me, and I'm really looking forward to reading it soon. I loved that my expectations of this book were shattered but in the best kind of way. I'm a back cover/summary reader always. I like having an idea of what the book is about before I start reading. I've always been like that. So for an author to take those expectations of what I came into this book thinking it was going to be and then just shake them to the core.....it was an experience I won't be forgetting anytime soon. I was able to guess a few aspects of the ending but it was still quite the ride for me! I'm eager to chat about this book with other readers and get their thoughts on it! I would recommend this book to fans of thrillers and suspense! Bottom Line: An unexpected reading experience that I really enjoyed! Disclosure: I received a copy of this book thanks to the publisher. Thoughts are my own.
This spellbinding tale grabbed my attention from the very first chapter and held it intently until the last! With every page I turned the deeper I fell into the lives of these characters, and the more obsessed I became with finding out what happened to Evie. This mind-twisting read had me dangling on the edge of my seat the whole way through, and impressed on all fronts, highly recommend!
Blink: Includes the bonus novel Safe with Me was a highly entertaining and absorbing read. It introduces us to a somewhat unreliable and weird narrator, a lot of plausible suspects, and plenty of clues that turn out to be red herrings. Toni is a mother and wife and a widow now that her husband was a casualty of the war in Afghanistan. To cope with mounting debt and her daughter’s scary teacher, Toni begins to self- medicate. One day, Evie, Toni’s daughter, fails to return from school. Flash forward to the present and we come across an unnamed hospital patient whose identity is a mystery. Is it Toni, or someone else? The story has many twists and turns, and the ending is unpredictable.
