GoodReads Monday: In A Dark, Dark Woods by Ruth Ware

I need something to tide me over between Ruth Ware's Turn of the Key and the upcoming One by One... I give you In A Dark, Dark Woods

GoodReads Monday: In A Dark, Dark Woods

As Everyone knows, last summer I became a huge fan of Ruth Ware (and am now complete trash for the Adult Psychological Thriller category/genre) when I read Ruth Ware’s latest book Turn of the Key in five hours flat (review is linked). Continuing in Ruth Ware’s participation in my Fling Extravaganzas, like 2019, her new book One by One is apart of this year’s Spring/Summer Fling 2020.

Additionally, In A Dark, Dark Woods is apart of my Back List titles challenge. It hasn’t happened, yet. But I’m determined that it will.

Why In A Dark, Dark Woods? 

As I talked to long-time Ruth Ware readers and new Ruth Ware readers (like myself), I noticed one commonality. Veterans recommended In a Dark, Dark Wood. Those that had just read Ruth Ware’s latest book Turn of the Key, and didn’t know where to go next? Both had all directed me to this title.

Ok Fine. I’m sure being apart of Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club doesn’t hurt. But still. It is a starting point. I needed a starting place and In a Dark, Dark Wood was the undeniable, common denominator among the thriller, suspense genre. Truth be told, at this point, I need a starting place for A TON of authors in this genre that I’ve found. I know, I know. When things cool off at the end of November-January, it’ll a good time for it.

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.
