February Book Recap & Recommendations

Hey there. I am so excited to be sharing my favorite blog post of the month, my book recap!
This is a short recap but includes one of my favorite books of all time. Let's dive in.

Final Girls by: Riley Sager
This book is about three women, deemed The Final Girls, who have each been the only survivor of separate mass murders. Two of the girls lives are suddenly intertwined when one of the Final Girls ends up dead and detectives aren't convinced it was suicide. No one is who they say they are and nothing is at is seems.

This was the only Riley Sager book I hadn't read and I had high standards. His other two books are my favorite thrillers so I was so anxious to read this one as well. I didn't love this one quite as much as his other books. I did still really enjoy it and found it super enthralling but it was just a tad too dark for my liking. There were some disturbing details that I could have done without. Other than that though, it was good. I would still recommend his other two books first.

Rate: 4 Stars

The Flatshare by: Beth O'Leary
This book is about a young lady who is recovering from a breakup and is looking for a new place to live ASAP. She comes across an ad for a flatmate and says yes without ever meeting the young man she would be living with. He works overnight and stays with his girlfriend during the weekend, so she only has the flat during the afternoon/evening. They go without meeting for months and communicate by leaving sticky notes around their flat. They become pen pal friends and start to help one another through the hardest parts of their lives. One morning, they finally meet and their friendship as they know it, is over.

I have seen a lot of people rave about this book, so maybe I am the only one, but I found this one rather slow. I thought the beginning dragged and I didn't particularly enjoy the style of writing. It was choppy and kept me from connecting to the characters. The overall concept is adorable and plenty of others have loved it so take my opinion for what it's worth and maybe try this one for yourself.

Rate: 3 Stars

Redeeming Love by: Francine Rivers
This book is a retelling of Hosea and Gomer set during the California Gold Rush. Angel is a prostitute with a hard heart and a tragic past. She meets Michael Hosea who is a hard working farmer and Christ follower. Angel tries repeatedly to push him away, despite his consistent pursuing.

This is officially my favorite book of all time. Ever. I cried at so many point during this book. I just love this story and how it translates to Christ's unfailing love for us as well. I will definitely have to reread this one again one day. This book has hundreds of thousands of five star reviews so I am not alone in thinking this is the best book ever. I can't wait to read more of this authors work. You don't have to be up on your bible reading to enjoy this book and I recommend EVERY PERSON READ IT!!

Rate: 500 STARS!!!!
