On My Bookshelf [The Woman in Cabin Ten]

The Woman in Cabin Ten came highly recommended from many different friends and blogs, and although it's good, I'm not sure that I enjoyed it quite as much as they did.  Although I seem to be the only one who didn't love The Girl on the Train, either, and I find it's for the same reason.  I just didn't love the main character.  She's not all that likeable.  I did, however, like the overall plot, and enjoyed the mystery with a few twists and turns.

 THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 BY RUTH WARE (JULY 19)  In need of a good, British psychological thriller? This new novel from the author of In a Dark, Dark Wood follows a young journalist who witnesses a grisly murder while on a press trip for a new luxury cruise line. The only problem? Every passenger on the ship is accounted for.

 Amazon says:
In this tightly wound, enthralling story reminiscent of Agatha Christie’s works, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and terrifying nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong…

With surprising twists, spine-tingling turns, and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offers up another taut and intense read in The Woman in Cabin 10—one that will leave even the most sure-footed reader restlessly uneasy long after the last page is turned.

I know it might seem odd to include a post on a book I didn't love, but with as much as I read, it happens from time to time (and trust me, if it's something I absolutely wouldn't recommend, there won't be a post at all!!).  As someone who reads reviews of other avid readers, it's nice to hear an honest review, too. 

As always, I'd love to know what's on your bookshelf!  Always looking for something great to read.

Happy Reading!

  1. This book is on my holds list at the library! It took me over seven months to get my hands on The Nest, so who knows when I'll actually get to read it! I totally want to see GOTT the movie :)


Thanks so much for buzzing by! I look forward to hearing from you!
