Okay, confession. I’ve been kicking it thru my book list, however it has been a lot of series. Janet Evanovich and Michael Connelly… I’ve got a thing for criminals being captured.
Instead of listing off 5 books from these two author’s, I want to change up my Spring list! Here are five novels that were good, had a memorable story line, or had an ending that blew my mind – just didn’t quite make my FAVS list

When you judge a book by its cover… the story has two parts; the first as newlywed couple Lily and Ed meet Carla and set the tone of their married life, the second 15 years later as you learn the people in our lives come back and some never leave
If you wanted to drastically change your life, how would you do it? What if you wanted to elevate the level of company you kept? I’m not nearly as cunning as Daphne or Amber and as this dark story reveals secrets you’ll need to see if you could form a plan like they have.
What the actual 😲 THIS. THIS! A mystery of a crazy woman who turns out to not be the only crazy – and I’ll I’m gonna say is the same freaking thing my husband’s Aunt said to me when I finished it…. “close the blinds”
This is the first book by this author for me and it threw me for a loop! The mystery and plot twist that wasn’t revealed until the end was A. LOT. and then I just sat there looking for the clues I had missed.
What I DID appreciate was the focus on mental health and how different people process.
Ahhh, it pains me to include Jodi Picoult in this list and while this novel had a good bones and relatable characters, it was very hard to navigate the back and forth among everyone. I know this is nothing new to Jodi Picoult storytelling but the book also begins at the end and works to the beginning. It covers sensitive topic’s (abortion and gun violence) but missed the mark for me in comparison to her other novels.
Have you read any of these? Or have a similar book from your collection that you just wouldn’t pick up again? Let me know!
