    4.0 Stars I saw a lot of potential with Brianna Labuskes first book, It Ends With Her , so when I saw that Girls of Glass was available, I had to give it a chance Boy, am I glad I did Girls of Glass is written from multiple perspectives covering time periods both before and after the kidnapping and death of 5 year old Ruby The author writes from the perspectives of Alice the investigating detective who suffered a similar tragic loss that makes this case personal Charlotte the mother of Ruby and Trudy Ruby s 18 year old aunt The story unfolds with many twists and turns and it was enjoyable seeing both the victims and detective s perspectives both before and after the kidnapping I will say the book doesn t flow as well and is harder to read because of the fact that it jumps all over the place time wise, but Labuskes does a masterful job keeping the plot tight while slowly revealing the villains and backstory that makes this a masterful work I never came close to figuring out where the book was going and ...

    Thanks to NetGalley for providing me a complimentary copy of GIRLS OF GLASS by Brianna Labuskes in exchange for my honest review Alice, a detective, investigates the kidnapping of a five year old girl, five years after her own daughter was kidnapped and murdered.Based on what I enjoy and dislike about thrillers, I shouldn t have been glued to GIRLS OF GLASS, holding my breath in anticipation On the surface most of the characters were truly unlikable and unsympathetic Ruby s mother Charlotte and aunt Trudy made me cringe, until I got to know them Then, I could root for them, hope they weren t the perp, while still not actually liking them as individuals Rudy s physically and emotionally abusive grandmother and her grandfather who may have been worse were as one dimensional as villains can be, yet somehow I bought into their awfulness My favorite character was Zeke and Trudy grew on me in the second half of GIRLS OF GLASS.Labuskes drops twists seamlessly into the plot, m...

    Twisty plot with slightly overdramatic writing But that s just one opinion.Thank you Netgalley for the arc in exchange for my honest review.

    My first DNF of 2019 The writing is just too overwrought, and the flashbacks felt unnecessary I liked Alice needed less Charlotte and Trudy.

    I thought the constant time jumps made this difficult to read I was also taken aback by the reveal of the killer It felt rushed and out of left field It also felt like lots of the set ups weren t resolved.

    They were snapshots, those moments Ugh Just ugh I mean it wasn t even that terrible, but it was so unsatisfying I ll admit that I expected something filled with suspense, mystery and awe when I first saw the title, because it this aesthetic feel, but turns out it was just. Boring This was what it was like to be a mother who had just lost her child So Alice Garner is a detective whose daughter was once kidnapped and murdered Free years later, the whole trauma she underwent seemed to reface when a judge s granddaughter, Ruby, is kidnapped To garnish, Ruby s mother, Charlotte, is taken is held responsible, and Alice, having gone through this before, staunchly believes that Charlotte was not responsible While the premise it laid out, the making or breaking of the story depends on how well the author deals with it And in this case, it was dealt poorly If you feel like you don t have a choice, you re just ignoring the options that you don t want to consider To start off, the characters were the least bit amiable They were so plain, dry, and cardboard cut that I simply could not bring myself to care Let s start with the detective herself To be honest, she just felt like a joke, a...
