    JULY 2019 BOTM SELECTION It certainly doesn't feel cursed Or haunted Or any other menacing label you could put on an apartment building It's comfortable spacious and other than the wallpaper nicely decorated It's easy to see why Nick and Greta choose to live here I would certainly stay longer than three months if I could afford to Which makes it all the stranger that Ingrid chose to leaveMuahahahaha Mr Sager has done it again folks I'm always wary picking up the forecasted blockbusters of the year but I'll be darned if this isn't his best novel to date which is saying a lot as I adored The Last Time I Lied Lock Every Door feels like the author's signature style but each of his books has a different vibe in my opinion Final Girls was horrific slasher The Last Time I Lied was a campy YA and Lock Every Door has a grown up classic chiller feel with an updated twist on the locked room trope which is one of my personal favorite plots Obviously I had high hopes for this book; with a cover that stunning how could you not? And hello have you read the blurb? Wow I'm so pleased that I found this to be another winner from the author and I cannot wait for you to read it as well friends I'm not going to give a ton of info about the plot here tsk tsk because you want to be surprised but I will say that I loved the storytelling format used in this book I'm always game for a countdown and from the very first page we get a snippet of NOW followed by a travel backwards in time to a week prior and from there we are mostly catching back up to the NOW with a few present tense moments sprinkled between days This gives the book a growing sense of dread and what starts as a slow burn uickly turns into a manic frenzy of page turning This is a plot about missing girls about status and about where that privilege can take you Aside from being a compulsive mystery and one that I didn't have all figured out before the reveal happy dance Lock Every Door spends a good bit of time investigating grief loneliness and how easily we judge those who appear at first glance to be a burden on society I'll stop there but I really enjoyed and appreciated how the author handled these timely topics and took this story deeper than just an average pulse pounding thrillerEek I want to say but to do so would make me such a bad friend Do yourself a favor go in blind hang on to your butts and let Sager take you on another devilishly fun thrill ride If you missed the chance at snagging an early copy via the publisher please mark this on your summer TBR for July Purchase it borrow it from the library whatever you have to do just do it Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy

    Are you fcking kidding me?Unpopular opinion below I originally wrote a long and detailed review discussing all of my issues with this book However I don't want to ruin the experience for other readers who might enjoy this book so I have cut it down to the main points belowThe Good High level of tension and suspenseThe Bad Everything elseOverall One big convoluted mess Believability Nothing is believable NOTHING The Protagonist To put it kindly she is not the brightest bulb Yet she is the one to put the pieces of the mystery together?The Mystery Beyond ridiculousThe narrative All telling no seeingThe ending I have no words I tried to dive in and be entertained but my inner critic would not shut up I was rolling my eyes so much that it hurt So much does not add up and I was ready for Jules to die so I wouldn’t have to continue reading about her stupid choices I am glad this nightmare is over

    Is it over the top craziness? yep Is it addictive and entertaining? absolutely Did I feel like I was right next to Jules with my heart pounding along with her? I was practically holding her hand Who is Jules you might ask? She is the ever so curious protagonist who becomes an amateur sleuth when her stay at the ever so famous Bartholomew Apartment building begins to uncover its unsettling past The buildings deep dark secrets begin to surface bubbling over It's Gothic structure is over a hundred years old and some disturbing articles have been written about itCould she have made a mistake choosing to live here? The Gargoyle outside her window stood tall and ominous  It didn't creep Jules out though she thought it was like a protector standing guard  She doesn't realize it uite yet but she will need a protectorI was completely drawn into this highly entertaining and unpredictable tale of the Bartholomew's dark past with its observing walls and uirky wealthy residents I just had to find out what happened to the other missing apartment sittersI DARE NOT say just read it for yourself and you can hold Jules hand as she tries to plan her escapeBuddy read Thanks for entertaining me with all your wild predictions along the way Kendall Of course none of them were as wild as what actually happenedThis one is sure to stir up some discussions Don't miss it OUT on July 22019Thanks to the publisher NG for my copy to review

    Holy shit this book was intense and creepy This is my third time reading a thriller from Riley Sager and wow this book is great it's my new favoriteThis story follows this girl Jules who is desperate for a job when she stumbles upon this too good to be true opportunity to live in this glamorous apartment building in New York and they will pay her to be a tenant there Except for the building is said to be cursed haunted shady But she desperately needs the money and she’s always wanted to live there since she was a little girl so it seems like a winwin situation Until it’s notThis book was creepy and it felt like a perfect mix of thriller of horror which is something I love about all of Riley Sager’s books They always have this haunting atmosphere and feel slightly paranormal or creepy like someone is always watching the main character and I eat that shit up I love it There were some truly creepy moments in this book that gave me chills?? I felt like I was in the apartment building because the descriptions were so vivid Even though this is a typical “girl goes missing” thriller and we spend the majority of the book trying to figure out what happens to this girl it was still so much than that and it was such a fun but also disturbing read The ending got a lot dark than I was expecting it toI really enjoyed this book so much and if you’re a fan of thrillers with a touch of horror I highly recommend this 🤗 I reread this book as an audiobook and it was just as fun to listen to I enjoyed it so much

    Rules Rules Rules YOU MUST OBEY THE RULES They are simple rules really do not disturb the other residents at the Bartholomew no overnight visitors and you must spend every night in your apartment With added uestions thrown in about drinking smoking family etcReeling from a recent breakup Jules has been sleeping on her best friend’s couch when she sees the ad for an apartment sitter on Craigslist she applies for the job After answering some background uestions she is hired as and can't believe her luck getting paid a lot of money to live in such a beautiful and grand building She shrugs off her best friends doubts and concerns and moves and makes friends with another apartment sitter named Ingrid Who cares about the building’s creepy history money is money right? But soon Jules begins to hear strange noises at night and Ingrid alludes to the fact that the Bartholomew may not be what it seemsand then Ingrid goes missing Ever hear the adage If it seems too good to be true it usually is My first thought was why would a building which houses celebrities and wealthy people advertise on craigslist and not some ritzy house sitting company????? Hmm now I know While searching for her missing friend Jules begins to learn about the Bartholomew and its dark history I was fully engaged in this book and found it to have moments of dread and suspense He piued my curiosity right away and held it for most of the book This became a real page turner for me I had several theories and guesses about what was going to happen and I did not see that ending coming I'll be honest the ending was a little bit of a letdown for me Having said that I still found this to be a fast read which sucked me in and kept my attention
