Blurb: She’s my roommate.

I know how she takes her tea, how she organizes her closet.

I know when she goes to bed each night, what she eats for breakfast, the passcode on her phone.

I know she calls her mother on Mondays, takes barre on Thursdays, and meets her friends for drinks on Fridays.

But more important than any of that … I know what she did.

*** I received this ARC in exchanged for an honest review. ***

So when I read the blurb, I was extremely curious as to what this was about. What happened? What DID The roommate do?  Was this like, I Know What You Did Last Summer ? I HAD to know. So as soon as I started reading this book, I was pulled in because it wasn’t what I thought it would be like at first. Nothing was suspicious, I mean NOTHING. So I was a little confused, but I carried on because I needed to know what happened next. 

Everything was completely normal. Even including one of the main characters being down on her luck in the beginning. So I read on to see where her life and luck would take her in this story…

I just knew something good would happen. I was so right! As the book went on things got weirder and weirder. At one point I wondered if I was in The Twilight Zone. Things weren’t making sense and had me questioning why the characters did that. Namely, that damn roommate! There are some bizarre things that happen that had me scratching my head, like whaaaa? I would not want a roommate like that FYI. I never felt so weirded out in my life.

Also the plot twists that happen in the book towards the end, I didn’t see coming, you guys. I felt like the rug was ripped out from under me and I fell on my ass. I looked around like, what the fuck just happened and how? It was jarring to say the least.  This book honestly reminded me of the book, The Girl On The Train and the movie, Single White Female along with its own twisted, mixed up ideas. 

I look forward to reading another book by Minka Kent because this one was extremely satisfying. Read at your own risk.

As soon as I heard about this book I wanted to read it, I just didn’t get the chance to buy it until this last christmas. I didn’t start to read it until this month and I don’t understand what the hell took me so long to pick it up! The story is gripping and peculiar as soon as you start it and you don’t want to set it down even for a moment. Not even to go eat something, I would just sit there for hours and read it fascinated with Rachel and how she was trying to figure out things. I was trying to fill in the gaps with her.

Each place you are taken within this book is dark, chilling and sinister. You really don’t see it coming. When you’re reading The Girl On The Train, you can’t really be sure who is completely innocent and that is thrilling in itself. You kind of wonder what each character has done and you don’t really know until the end of the book. Honestly, some of the characters are more of a mystery than anything so you just kind of wonder about them in the end.

This book just reminds me when something horrifying happens and it’s gory but you just can’t look away. You just can’t help yourself and stare at the scene. That’s how the book is. It’s darkly addictive and it’ll have you obsessing over it, especially from the betrayals that come close to home. Not everything is as it seems… or is it?

 

 

 

So have any of you read this? What did you think? Did you see the movie? I actually saw the movie before I was able to get the book. Let’s chat!
