Good Me, Bad MeGood Me, Bad Me by Ali Land

Thank you to NetGalley for this ARC .
I couldn’t put it down. Originally I struggled to work out if the cover intrigued me or just scared me a little ( girl from the grudge style) but on the kindle you don’t see that anyway.
The book follows the story of a teenage girl whose mother has been arrested for killing children. I feel an instant sympathy for the lead character, Annie/Millie who was brave enough to report her own mother. My imagination pictured her on a regular basis to be alot younger than she was so whilst the fear that is generated by her is obvious to the characters around her i didn’t feel it.
I can see this being a big Book Club Book as it has a fast flowing storyline and so many questions posed.

I had my wish granted by the NetGalley Angels for this ARC – I am so happy it was granted.

This book centers around Quincy, a survivor, last girl standing following a massacre. Now year later leading a normal life Sam turns up, also a survivor.

As Quincy cant recall the details of that night in the woods we jump between present day, and that night. The storyline creates an instant distrust of Sam, is she really who she says she is, how has she managed to hide all these years? As I went through the book, I ended up really questioning most of the characters – who really was responsible for the massacre, Sam, the cop? The boyfriend? Quincy herself?
I ve got around 20% of the book left to go and I’ve now got a pretty good idea of how it will play out, some obvious clues if you think about them.

I found this book page turning from start to finish, as thrillers go it kept me on my toes, the wrong footing of the narrative and final outcome was pleasantly believable, once this becomes a best seller Im sure it’ll be snapped up to be a blockbuster.

First blog post

I just wanted to introduce myself.  Hi I’m Mimi (Waves).  I can usually be found curled up somewhere with a Kindle – I know that can be a divisive statement, but I’d be lost without it these days. Don’t get me wrong, I miss books, the feel, and smell but I travel, alot, so the Kindle has become by best friend!

I tend to read alot of Advance Copies of Books, so hopefully I’ll be posting pretty new reviews on here – but as I ve been reviewing on various other sites I’ll be sharing those reviews with you too.

 

So thats me, Mimi.
