Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I have heard nothing but good things about this book since the ARCs were sent out. I have been dying to read this and the time has finally arrived. I love the premise. This book is going to be good. This book will be the book that redeems the adult thriller genre for me. I simply just have a feeling.

Thank you so much to Penguin Random House South Africa for providing me with a copy of this book! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing in this book was so good! I really got sucked into the story with the amazing use of flashbacks and dialogue. The internal and external dialogue was just amazing. I did feel that although the book lacked a lot of detail, it didn't need it. The author's writing style just made the story work well.

Plot Thoughts:

I loved the plot in this book. I loved how everything unfolded. Slowly. I loved how we started to see the cracks in Quincy's life and we got to see that perhaps there was something more to the story. This was the first thriller in a while to spook me. I was a little creeped out to go and sleep. I had my guess at who was the killer and sadly I was wrong but I wouldn't say that I was far off. I loved how the author threw you off every trail. I loved everything about this book.

Character Thoughts:

I really liked how Quincy started off as 'perfect' and slowly but surely we started to see her flaws. I loved that her imperfections created a new person and I really enjoyed seeing how her character progressed. Whether it was ugly or just something small. It was interesting and incredible.

Final Thoughts:

There is a reason as to why people really enjoy this book. If you enjoy thrillers or just want to get into the genre, this is the book for you. It had everything I wanted and simply went beyond what I was expecting. The writing sucked you in. The plot through you off and revealed the nature of people. The character development and general progression for each character was incredible. Whilst I having nothing but good things to say about this book, there was just that small something that was missing for me. I have no idea what it was but there was something missing. I really liked this book! Thank you so much to Penguin Random House South Africa for providing me with a copy of this book!

Yours in Reading,
