What I've been reading lately

What the book is about (from Goodreads) -

Catherine Bailey has been enjoying the single life long enough to know a catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic and spontaneous, Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell.

What I thought about the book -

I was determined to read this book during the summer, while I was at home and not sleeping alone in an apartment. I read it 24 hours...staying up until 2am to finish it. 

Did I enjoy it? I'm not sure. It was similar a feeling to when I read Before I Go to Sleep. It is gripping, but at times the writing was dragged out and quite repetitive. I did enjoy the style of writing; Haynes jumps back and forth in time, from before Catherine's 'final' attack and to a more recent time in Catherine's life. Although, I didn't like the fact that there were no chapters in this book, (This is probably why I was up so late finishing it!) as there is no natural place to stop reading.

If you like thrilling page-turners, you'll love this. If you are a wimp (like me!), don't read it when you are alone in the house at night!


  1. oooo this one sounds good!

    happy friday!

  2. Huh...I'll have to look into that one!

  3. No chapters? Wow... don't know if I could read a book like that. I unfortunately no longer have the luxury to sit down for that long to read a book hence why I finished the book I started in April in September. It wasn't long, I just could only read 30 pages here or there.

    Although my sister who has 2 kids and a full-time job has read through the Game of Thrones series, The Hunger Games trilogy and several other books before I finished one because she uses her phone and iPad. So I'm starting to seriously consider a reading device but I just love actual books :(
