Best Of… October 2018 @aharmon_author @bookouture @johnmarrs1

I had originally decided to include this new feature in my monthly wrap ups, but I just felt there were too many facts squeezed into one little post and the whole purpose of putting my favorite reads in the spotlight was lost. So this is me giving those favorites their well deserved extra attention! I think most people will be able to guess what my favorite read of October was… Although there were a few other serious contenders. Without further delay, October 2018’s favorite is… *drumroll*

The Smallest Part by Amy Harmon!! Of course I just HAD to pick this story as my absolute favorite. Not only was it the only full five star rating of the month, it was also one of the top reads of the year and one I cannot recommend enough.

What I said in my review:

“This story has once again reconfirmed my love for her work. What an absolutely brilliant and moving story! ”

“Between the wonderful writing style, the excellent character development, an interesting plot and the paranormal angle The Smallest Part has everything and more needed to turn this into one of my top reads this year.”

There were five titles with a 4,5 star rating in October, but I’ve decided to only feature four of them. Three out of four actually belong to one of my favorite genres this time around. (I’m sure you can guess what genre.) All four of them are without doubt excellent reads and deserve all the praise! In the order I’ve read them:

What I said in my review:

Before She Falls is creepy, dark and disturbing with a lightning fast pace and a few heartstopping moments; any fan of the genre will be in for a treat with this series is general.”

“This story has everything I could want of a thriller: a creepy serial killer, a clever plot, suspense, plot twists, interesting characters, an original touch… All blended together into a perfect detective thriller smoothie”

What I said in my review:

“There is just something about the way she writes that makes me forget all about the fact that is not my favorite genre, and she is one of the few authors that can make me enjoy it.”

“It’s short, well written, well crafted and entertaining, and 200% worth your time.”

What I said in my review:

“There is just something about the writing style that draws you right in, grabs you and won’t let you go until you reach the final page. This is one of those books you’ll have to clear up your schedule for, because you’ll want to read it in one sitting!”

The Perfect Family is another well crafted, suspenseful and deceiving psychological thriller that won’t let you go until you know it all… Perfect for fans of the genre.”

What I said in my review:

“If you are looking for a well constructed, elaborate and intriguing detective thriller with an original twist, Her Last Move is a great choice.”

“I really like how Her Last Move isn’t just another detective thriller, and adds its original twist to it. The plot itself is quite complicated with three different POVs to consider as well as various background stories. But it all just worked for me, and both the suspense and plot twists are well handled. “
