The Girl in the Mirror by Rose Carlyle

Oh man. I don’t even know where to begin to unpack this book. It’s the ultimate game of clue- winner takes all. In a oddly structured, blended family, the death of the patriarch leaves both sadness, and a bizarre will, behind.

Getting to know the characters in this novel was seriously wonderful. The dynamic storytelling, and the lead-up to the twist is insane. You will seriously not be able to put this one down.

I really enjoyed the themes of self-reflection, and the grass not always being greener on the other side, and things and people not being what they seem throughout this novel. It is so well played, and it is so relatable in terms of relationships.

This is my first Rose Carlyle novel, and I can honestly say it will not be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed her writing. Her characters all had such depth and dimension. She dangled the plot in front of you, like a carrot on a stick, and she keeps the pages turning with her seriously devious, suspenseful, twists. I am so please with my October BOTM selection. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

The Dream Job by Kiersten Modglin

I read this book in June.

This book was so unique, right from the first page you are hooked. It starts in the most peculiar way, and you don’t really know where it is going… but then things start to take off. And boy do they take off. This book was fast paced, with a plot that doesn’t quit and an intense cast of characters. You definitely won’t want to put it down, because you will have to know just how it ends. A very unconventional love story, filled with excitement and so many twists and turns. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
