The US government spends billions of dollars training soldiers to kill. Now they’re attempting an alternative approach. Instead of turning soldiers into killers, the military has trained five psychopathic murderers to be part of a classified Special Forces unit.
I really did enjoy this book. I got it only because of the movie and thought it would be a good one to read before seeing it on the screen. It was quick, smart, and a little scary. I don't do horror, not because I don't enjoy it, I just have too much other stuff on my to read list. Oh, and I get really, really freaked out when reading even the slightest scary bit in a book. I loved the writing, enjoyed the vocabulary (had to use a dictionary a few times which I love), and liked the storyline.
Wicked Business (Lizzy & Diesel, #2) by Janet Evanovich. Dazzling her patrons with scrumptious cupcakes at her Salem, Massachusetts, bakery, Elizabeth Tucker continues to fall for the irresistible Diesel, who protects her from a villain who is seeking mystical stones tied to the seven deadly sins.
Where'd You Go, Bernadette?, Maria Semple. This book wasn't to my taste at all. If you liked Gone Girl, you'll probably enjoy it. There's a similar mystery to unravel but Bernadette's isn't nearly as dark. This isn't a short book, but it's fast, easy reading.
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. This is a heart wrenching, thought provoking story about a couple who makes a decision that will alter their lives, and the life of another family, forever. Without spoiling the plot, I can simply say this is a must read book… and one you’ll want to talk about with someone as soon as you are done reading it! Thank you, Kate, for the recommendation.
