I've been SLAUGHTERED!

This book was so good I stayed up nights reading it. First thing in the morning while the dogs whined for their morning walk I'd have to finish just one more chapter.
And then the ending.....OMG! I sprang up out of bed at 2 a.m. shouting "NOOooooOOoooo!"

Have you ever read a book and get to one line that stands out as amazing. Like you have the wow, I wish I wrote that feeling.
There were many great lines in this book but my favorite was:

It had rained all night, a hard, heavy rain that tapped on their window like a witch trying to get in.

Love Karen Slaughter! Find her here.

You know, I've been wanting to try Karin Slaughter for quite awhile now. Looks like I need to make it sooner than later!

Oh, and great line!

It was a good book but the ending will shock you. As a writer I so wanted to call Karin up and question her about it. I don't want to give it away...read the book.
I first found out about her when Jessica from Bookends made a comment on how she'd love to have a writer like that under her. So of course I had to read her books!

Definately an amazing writer. She puts so many twists in the book I find myself going back to reread parts. She makes you believe one thing and then ZAP! pulls the rug out from under your feet.
Gotta love it.
