Not Her Daughter by Rea Frey

Not Her Daughter by Rea Frey

Wow. If you start this book with looming deadlines or close to bedtime, be prepared to disregard both once you start reading Rea Frey’s immensely absorbing novel, Not Her Daughter. This is, hands down, one of the most compelling and complex books I’ve read so far this year. It is a fast-paced story that alternates between two female narrators, leading up to and during the kidnapping of a five-year-old girl. This book immerses the reader into […]

Wow! This book was amazing! Well, if you can overlook an adult having sex with a fifteen year old. Normally I would have DNF’d the book right away, but after reading tons of reviews I knew I was going to go ahead and read it anyway. And honestly I’m glad I did. There are so many layers to this story. I was hooked from the very first page. I can honestly say this book is […]

My thoughts… This is the first book by Author Rebecca Donovan that I’ve gotten the privilege to read. I’ve read many reviews and tweets about this series, so I decided to take a chance on it. The synopsis drew me in and I couldn’t wait to get started. The loved the main characters as well as most of the secondary characters. I really liked Emma’s character. She’s a lot stronger than you would think she […]

I went into this book thinking it was going to be the same story as Sky’s but from a different POV.  IT’S NOT.  It’s much more than that. It was almost like reading a new book, only not. Because we do get some rehashing of scenes that we experienced in Hopeless, but with Holder’s inner dialogue it made it a new experience. This book invoked so many emotions I would probably forget a few trying […]

Holy SHIT. This book is unlike ANYTHING I’VE EVER READ BEFORE. I didn’t know what the fuck was going on most of the time. The story is creative and unique, and the writing is impeccable. Usually I pick up on typos and misspellings when I’m reading but I did not notice ANY in this book. The  is a dark story about a young 20 something year old girl named Deanna aka Jess. She has cut […]

My thoughts… Have you ever read a story that draws you in from the very beginning? One where you can’t put it down because you can’t wait to find out what happens next? This is what Hopeless did for me. I literally couldn’t stop reading it. I love, love, love this story. So much! There was never a time where I lost interest or started skimming while reading it. It kept me captivated from beginning […]
