  • “In a Dark, Dark Wood” by Ruth Ware

This book was a fast read. I was expecting dark and dreary. I just didn’t find the book as creepy or as dark as it was portrayed. I kept reading thinking—when does it get scary and dark. I guess the story didn’t grab me in that way. I was concentrating on Nora, the main character who flashes back and forth trying to remember a weekend that ended in murder. 
But, who is to blame? The Bachelorette party gone awry! 
The house they are staying in is all glass in the middle of the woods. My first thought was, turn around... nothing good happens in glass houses... you know stones and all.

The story builds and the climax is exciting. I will say I kinda guessed the killer by the end. Each character is unreliable in many ways.

I found it fascinating that Nora was gaslit by herself. She couldn’t figure out her story and since she was a crime writer—did she remember the details correctly, or did she convince herself that the story she’s remember was just another fictional story in her mind? 
At times you trust the author... and then you distrust the author... eventually you do get more of the story. Just be patient. 
Again, it’s a light, and fun read. I enjoyed this more than “Girl on the Train.” #book #bookstagram #reading #bookreview #bookshelf #bookclub #read #DrJReads #books #thriller #mystery

  • ANZAC day here in Australia today to remember all those who served their country. My Grandad served as a Private in the battle of Long Tan in Vietnam until he was shot in the hip. Lucky for us he survived. ☀️
☀️
Flipping through these books eating Anzac biscuits made by my W. They document so much history including many photographs. There’s even a section dedicated to Grandad!

Lest we forget ♥️

Hi everyone!  I’m Angela!  I’m a soon-to-be high school graduate who will be studying International Studies: Development and Arabic minor in the fall. I want to work as a humanitarian on both the non-profit and political level. 
This summer I am planning to volunteer abroad with IVHQ in the Fiji Kindergarten project. I love children and believe everyone should receive an equal and quality education, especially in kindergarten: the building block of education. This is why I want to work in the kindergarten program
Please consider sparing a cup of coffee (or tea) and donate to my trip!  The link is in my bio!

Description (user) : 
The Wheel of Time turns, and Robert Jordan gives us the eleventh volume of his extraordinary masterwork of fantasy.The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One's prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off. But his attempt to make a truce with the Seanchan is shadowed by treachery that may cost him everything. Whatever the price, though, he must have that truce. And he faces other dangers. There are those among the Forsaken who will go to any length to see him dead--and the Black Ajah is at his side.... Unbeknownst to Rand, Perrin has made his own truce with the Seanchan. It is a deal made with the Dark One, in his eyes, but he will do whatever is needed to rescue his wife, Faile, and destroy the Shaido who captured her. Among the Shaid...
