Book Club Pick: The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica

The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica, February 18, 2020, Park Row

Genre: psychological thriller

This novel is for next month's library book club, which rarely schedules thrillers. Someone at the library must have really liked this book! 

My goodreads comments: 

The mystery had me guessing till near the end, when I saw the only solution to the questions the story presented. So the ending was not a total surprise, but to have so many bad guys in the picture was different. 

This interesting psychological thriller had many serious themes: PTSD, child abuse, family dysfunction, mental illness, and of course, murderous individuals. 


For a book tour:

 A Mother's Tale and Other Stories by Khanh Ha. I've finished the first two of many stories:  tales of war and the aftermath of war. 

Other reading: 

I have numerious ebooks on my reader, but these days I prefer to read paper books from the library. 

I'm also not getting used to the cooler weather. I'm not ready for flannel pjs as yet! 


What are you reading this week?

A thriller sounds like a nice change if you’ve been reading a lot of literary fiction.

That's one book I still have on the TBR - sounds perfect for October.

Thanks, I added The Other Mrs. to my library wish list. I much prefer reading e-books to paper.

I love thrillers, I hope you like The Other Mrs. I may add it to my list. I'm still loving audio's over print or ebooks, but I do read them too.

I am sure our book club would love to read a thriller. I'm not sure that we have ever read one for our club. This one sounds like a book that we would all enjoy, too.

I really enjoyed The Other Mrs. I am a fan of Kubica.

Enjoy your books and your week, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

Both of your books sound interesting! Fall has arrived for us whether I am ready or not - haha! I am with you though, I am not ready for the really cold weather yet. Have a great week!

I've only read one book by Mary Kubica and would like to read more so good to hear you enjoyed this one. I'm still waiting for fall to arrive in central Texas. It's quite hot today and it's going to be hotter tomorrow. Ah well. Enjoy your weekend!

I’m the opposite, much prefer to read on my iPad rather than a paperback these days.

Wishing you a great reading week

Every once in awhile, a really good thriller can be fantastic! I really hope you enjoy it :) I'm having the same problem with my current reads - I have a ton of e-books that I have to get through, but I'm in a physical book mood haha! Hope you have a great week!

I'm just the opposite. I prefer reading books on my Kindle. In fact, I have repurchased in Kindle some of my older print TBR stack. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
